FIRM HAND SPANKING – A PAYSITE REVIEW

Note

I review as a paying customer – I do not except free memberships in exchange for a review. I am not participating in any affiliate programs and make no money from sites that I review. I paid for a thirty five day membership of Firm Hand Spanking and am reviewing it as a paying customer.

Click on this link Firm Hand Spanking to go to the website.

Introduction

Firm Hand Spanking is a spanking clips and photograph spanking website that features productions from both the USA and the UK. It features hand and implement spanking given by men and women but always has female performers on the receiving end. Although the scenes on this site are mostly in a set in a contemporary era, there are some in historical settings.

Costs

I paid for a 35 day, non recurring membership at a rate of $29.95 (US Dollars). Rates range from $24.95 for a recurring 30 day membership to $149.00 for a 365 day non recurring membership. There is a choice of recurring and non recurring membership rates.

Technical Stuff

Photographs are easily downloaded, either individually or as sets in a ZIP folder. The clips are available in lower or high quality downloads, so you can make the choice between quality and disc space usage. The spanking scenes are presented in a series of clips, of which several new clips are available each week. Each clip is accompanied by a selection of photographs.

Content

The first thing to say about the content on this site is that there is a hell of a lot of it. Some of the content was shot a long time ago, so if you want to follow a performer over a period of time this is a good site to join, if they have worked for this producer.

I get the impression that a lot of different people write and produce the scenes presented on this site. This does give a nice variety to the style of the productions available here. There does seem to be a formula for using the same spanking implements in all the scenarios both in the USA and the UK productions, giving a sense of continuity most of the time but after watching many of the clips I did feel that having the odd guest appearance of an, occasional, unusual toy might be a good idea to break the implement monotony.

The vast majority of the scenarios where well shot and edited and also had good sound quality.

There are some clip series that had very interesting story lines along with others that just had a quick excuse to get right to the spanking action. And so whichever you prefer you will be well catered for on this site.

Having productions from two countries also keeps things fresh and varied.

A lot of the clips have slow motion replays of the spanking at the end. These can be interesting but after a while I found myself skipping these parts.

Performers

There are many well known performers on this site and plenty that I had never seen before, meaning that you can follow your favourites and get introduced to some unfamiliar faces and rear ends. This site introduced me to two people that particularly impressed me with their ability as scene worthy Tops. They are Alison Miller and John Friday, both of whom I would like to see more of but I have never heard of them working for anyone else. All the performers showed their faces and their abilities to contribute to a spanking production.

Extras

There are some interviews available on this site and occasionally some out takes are included at the end of clips. These are a little thin on the ground and I would have liked to have seen more. I think that there is great potential for some special out take clips to be provided in the content.

Conclusion

I was very happy with being a member at this site and thought that it was good value for money because of the amount of content it makes available to it’s members. Almost all of the spanking action was worth while and ranged from moderately harsh to very harsh but without any blood being spilled. Some of the story lines held great interest and I am glad to have experienced them. On the critical side, I would say that varying the range of spanking toys occasionally would be a good thing and a little less slowmo replay and a few more out takes would make things a little more interesting.

The Report Card

Firm Hand Spanking performs well in class and assessments and has earned a good solid B+. Hard work has produced a lot of high quality results and it only lacks in a little variety of materials it has used for it’s submissions.

ELECTRIFYING THE TOY BOX – A REVIEW OF MY E-STIM

What is an E-stim?

 

P1040459 (2).jpg

The picture above shows, not only, an E-stim device but my E-stim device, which happens to be called a MyStim. An E-stim device is a fun electrical toy that is based on the medical devices, commonly known as T.E.N.S. units. They can be used at lower intensity levels for erotic stimulation. But you can crank up the dials and deliver quite a painful electro spanking or other play torture with them, if you so desire.

 

Play safely with electricity

 

As with all toys, you have to learn to play safely with an E-stim device. To put it in it’s simplest terms you have to avoid putting an electrical current on, near or through the head, neck, spine, heart or any other major abdominal organ. To make life simple, just make sure that the electrical contacts or other devices are only used from the waist down, on yourself or your partner. Now go and make yourself a really strong cup of coffee (because this video is boring enough to send you to sleep) and watch the following video on the safe use of T.E.N.S. units. It could mean the difference between having a very fun playtime and having to call an ambulance.

My MyStim

 

P1040451.jpg

 

My E-stim device came as a basic starter kit, in the nifty little carry case pictured above. In the box was the E-stim unit 4 electrical, self adhesive, reusable, contact pads, the cables to connect the pads to the device, a 9 volt battery and an instruction book. As can be seen below.

 

P1040453.jpg

 

 

The benefits of electro play

 

As a spanko, living in Belgium, a country without much of an adult spanking culture, I often find that I have to compromise how I play when interacting with people of a more BDSMy culture. This sometimes introduces me to things that I do not like.

I don’t like this kind of thing

tazapperfeat2.jpg

 

Such as the electric toys shown above, which just feel like cattle prods to me and I don’t go Moo. But E-stims I found to be a more fun device. Some people set the controls on low and use them for erotic stimulation. I prefer it when the knobs and dials are cranked up a bit and things get tastily painful.

 

P1040459.jpg

As you can see from the photo above You can use the controls to change the type of pulse, the length of pulse and the frequency of the pulses. The big round dials at the top turn the current on and off and give you the volume of stimulation or pain that you require.

I have had this devise and others like it wired up to my buttocks to give an electrical spanking, which I enjoy very much. These can also be wired up to other body parts for a more intimate form of fun torture play. I think that one of the biggest advantages of E-stim play is that it leaves no marks (except sometimes a small red patch where the contact pad was on the skin but this disappears within minutes) and your body recovers from playing almost immediately. So you can play to a high intensity with one of these devises and then don some skimpy swimwear and no one else at the pool will know that you have been playing.

 

Some other accessories that are available for E-stims

The school report

 

E-stim devices receive a resounding A grade. They are well worth the effort and give very pleasing results.

BONDING – A TV SERIES REVIEW

What is Bonding

bonding 1.jpg

Bonding is a recently released comedy TV series produced by and available on Netflix. It’s two main characters are Tiff, played by Zoe Levin and Pete, played by Brendan Scannell. Tiff is a University/College student, who is financing her studies by working as a Dominatrix. The gay character of Pete has known Tiff since their childhood schooldays and is employed by her as as an assistant/bodyguard/general go fer. Pete is also a wannabe comedian. The series revolves around the adventures of this dynamic duo, both inside the world of professional BDSM and in more mainstream life. The series is loosely based on the experiences of the shows main production initiator, Rightor Doyle and his time as an assistant to a Dominatrix.

 

My opinion of Bonding as a TV comedy

bonding-1556637825 from digital spy.jpg

On the whole I am glad that someone attempted to tackle this subject in such a way but I do believe that this is a bit of a failed effort, at the moment. As a comedy series, it cannot be expected that the story lines are fully reflective of the Professional BDSM scene but the story lines, in this case, are just too far from reality to have any believability. Also, as a comedy series, it needs to be a bit funnier.

penguin wrestling.jpg

I have a little theory as to what might have gone wrong. Unlike on this side of the Atlantic, comedy series from North America are usually written by teams of writers, rather than individuals. I suspect that Rightor Doyle started of with a good idea, based on real life experiences and then a lot of people, without a clue about this world, started to stick their grimy fingers into the pie and ruined the plot lines. Thus causing ludicrous scenes, such as Penguin Wrestling. If any members of the Penguin Wrestling community would like to disagree with me about this, please leave a comment at the end of this post.

 

A nasty truth included in Bonding

Abusive relationship couple.jpg

And that brutal truth is the high level of inexcusable Misandry, that is found within the BDSM and Spanking communities. In this case we see the character of Tiff swooping into a situation, where a female class mate is being victimised by a sexual predator and heroically saving  her, well done Tiff. During the series the same character meets a couple who become her clients. The female of this couple is violently and without consent, abusing her husband. Not only does no one feel that they should intervene in this situation but it is worked into the comedy element of the story line and normalised within the series. I find this to be a highly unacceptable attitude to adopt in this form of media.

 

The school report

Bonding is only worth a D- including a note to report to the study of the Head Mistress.

This series shows great potential but needs to make more effort and resist being distracted by those who have no or little personal experience of the subject matter.

 

Will there be a second series?

Although this comedy program has been highly slated, both from inside the kinky community and in the mainstream arena, it did get very good viewing figures and so a second series may be possible. Personally, I would like to see a second series. There are many examples of comedy series that where judged to be failures after the first series, Blackadder jumps to mind, but proceeded to become something special, in later series. I think with a more knowledgeable writing team and a bit less idiocy and more reality, this could become something worth watching, both for the Kinksters of this world and the Vanilla community.

THE BOOT PADDLE, A TOY REVIEW

Note – The photographs in this post are of paddles that are very similar to the one that I experienced but are not exactly the same as the actual paddle that was used on me

THE PADDLE

41e5+KBegpL.jpg

I do not own one of these paddles but have recently had the experience of being spanked with one at the hands of Meesteres Cela,  who is a real challenge to play with and I would say a very well worth while opponent for the experienced but beginners beware. The paddle itself is a simple, shaped piece of varnished wood with a work boot style sole glued to one side.

MY EXPERIENCE

straytoysdotcom-golden-oak-stained-boot-paddle-front_grande.jpg

During a very hard spanking session I was shown the paddle and asked which side I wanted to try. On one side was the work boot sole and on the other was smooth varnished wood, similar to but not as thick as a normal American wooden paddle. I am not a great fan of American paddles but have been spanked with them before and so I played safe and chose the smooth side, which gave the same brutal, all enveloping pain that a normal American paddle would. But after this I was informed that I was now going to be on the receiving end of the boot sole side of the paddle. The result was a pleasant surprise to me. This was still not a lightweight toy, it gave a lot of pain if not quite as much as an American style paddle. The type of pain was very different though and did not feel as brutal as the plain wooden side. I am presuming that this is because the pattern of the tread gave the flesh of my bottom somewhere to go, on impact.

 

CONCLUSION

s356334130396069843_p6_i1_w640.jpeg

I have seen paddles like this in shops before and was very critical of them, dismissing them as a worthless novelty. But now, having experienced one I am tempted to go out and buy one of my own. I would say that it is a high end of painful toy with an interesting and enjoyable sensation, well worth your time if you are seeking a hard but satisfying spanking.

 

AND

If you are ever shown one of these and asked to choose which side, I recommend the boot tread side 🙂

Dreams Of Spanking – A Paysite Review

Note

I review as a paying customer – I do not except free memberships in exchange for a reviews. I am not participating in any affiliate programs and make no money from sites that I review. I paid for a thirty day membership of Dreams of Spanking and am reviewing it as a paying customer.

Introduction

Dreams-of-Spanking_invites051

Dreams of Spanking is a spanking clips and photograph spanking website run by Pandora Blake. This site features F/m, M/f, F/f and M/m spanking scenes and is an openly fair trade porn site, treating all performers equally. The scenes on this site are in both historical and modern day settings.

Costs

Dreams-of-Spanking_shame007

I paid for the thirty day membership, at today’s rate that costs £20 (UK Pounds). memberships range from £10 for a five day membership, through to £75 pounds for a 180 day membership. All memberships are non recurring and so do not have to be cancelled.

Technical stuff

Dreams-of-Spanking_slave039

Photographs are easily downloaded, either individually or as sets in a ZIP folder. The clips are available in low and high quality downloads. The high quality downloads might be of use to you if you are intending to view the clips on a very large screen but I found that they took a very long time to get onto the hard drive and that the lower quality downloads took a more reasonable time to get and look great on the 32 inch screen, that I viewed them on.

Content

Dreams-of-Spanking_knees052

The spanking scenes are set throughout history or in the present day and a lot of planning a and forethought has gone into creating many and varied plots. There is a fair amount of hand spanking and OTK situations but most of the spanking play tends towards UK style bending over objects and furniture whilst receiving spankings with toys and implements. Some of the spankings are of the milder variety but most are of mid range intensity or slightly harsher. The spankings are hard enough but not of a high severity. Personally I was happy to see good solid play but no blood and no question of any boundaries being breached.

Technically, most of the scenes where very well shot and edited with a good level of finished quality usually maintained. There is a good amount of material on this site and it took me quite a while to watch, what I considered, enough of it to form a fair opinion of what this site has to offer. Because of this I would advise not to have the five day membership, as this is just not long enough to appreciate what this site has to offer. The site seemed well updated, with some nice new stuff being added every week, whilst I held my membership.

This site does push the envelope sometimes and tries to create clips that are beyond what other sites are offering. sometimes this works well and sometimes not. The not so good clips are usually due to the situation being beyond the technical capacity of the equipment available, remember no one can expect Hollywood scale production budgets or huge production teams. Personally I am happy to put up with one or two clips where the sound might not be perfect or whatever else, to get those clips where the risk was worth it and the unexpected had been achieved.

The performers

Dreams-of-Spanking_big-location-shoot2013_training3

There are a good range of familiar and new faces on this site all of which were well up to the mark where spanking play was concerned. Acting ability varied, of coarse but on the whole was usually good enough to do the job, with some performers getting a higher acting ability rating and some getting top marks. This site offers both girls and boys giving and receiving and it was particularly nice to see some performers on both ends of the stick, as it were. All of the performers showed their faces and more importantly what their individual personalities could bring to a scene.

Extras

Dreams-of-Spanking_tavern013

This site includes some good behind the scenes clips and interviews with the performers. These are often interesting and give an insight into what is going on during production and what the performers feel about the productions.

Conclusion

??????????????????????????????????????

I was very happy with this site and felt that my money had been well spent. All of the content had good spanking value and a lot of it I found to have good entertainment value as well. The action is good, firmly applied spankings but not overly harsh and the general dynamics between the performers worked well. If you want a straight to the action, limited storyline spankings, then learn to use the time slider on the vid clip and do your own editing, you would probably still enjoy the site. If you want a spanking site with good action but also well set up and executed story lines, then you have found the right place to go. If you love amazing costumes and this was the biggest attraction for me, you will not find a better spanking pay site than this for well dressed performers.

>The Mega Erotica Beurs Or Erotica Show – A review

The Erotica Exhibition In Antwerp

In General

The Mega Erotica Beurs is an Erotica exhibition that is held at multiple venues across Belgium (click on the link to see venue and dates for 2010/early 2011). It is an exhibition aimed at multiple interest groups and has retailers, artists and other show elements from countries across Europe. I visited the exhibition when it was at the Antwerp Expo (Antwerp Exhibition Halls) on Sunday 14th of March 2010. Entry to the Exhibition cost €20.

The Venue

The exhibition was at the Antwerp Expo in Antwerp. Firstly I would like to say that this is a very hard location to find. I was planning to visit the exhibition on the Saturday but I could not find the place, so ended up making a second visit to Antwerp on Sunday (armed with some better instructions). This Expo is not signposted from the motorway and is not in a highly frequented area of Antwerp for visitors to the city. Better directional signs, on the roads and motorway, are needed. Once there the venue suited it’s requirements well. There was plenty of free parking. The Exhibition occupied two halls of the center, providing plenty of space. Paid entry toilets (the norm in Belgium) where available, refreshments and food could be purchased in the halls and there was plenty of walking space between the stalls and shows. There was no where for smokers to go to get a quick gasper though, meaning that you had to get your hand stamped for reentry and leave the venue if you wanted a smoke (and I did, poor show Antwerp Expo).

Retail stands

There were plenty of retail and promotional stands, catering for many tastes. A good selection of BDSM retailers had a presence at the show and this gave me plenty to look around. As well as these there where the vanilla sex goods stands, artists, body piercers, tattoo artists, specialist clothing stalls, video retailers and other retailers and goods promoters.

Shows and demonstrations

These where a pleasant surprise. I expected a token effort of demonstrations but the shows where full on and well worth seeing. Amongst the shows included in the entry price where, BDSM displays form Steel Moon, a body painting outfit, an interactive glamor photography area, a hardcore (penetrative) Male/Female sex show and Dildo/vibrator demonstrations.

If you wanted to pay extra there where private girl/girl sex shows nude lap dancing and further shows and strip acts in the paid entry swingers bar.

various kinksters and characters where parading around the exhibition in general.

The shows and demonstrations where a lot better than I expected and I wish I had had more time to stay and see more of them.

The hard core area

More than half of the second hall was sectioned off as the hard live show section, with large warning signs for those that did not want to see the live sex shows. Here there where live penetrative sex acts and dildo/ vibrator demonstrations. You could also pay extra for some private shows in this area. The entrance to the Swingers and Gangbangers cafe was also here but it was paid entry, so I did not go in. I did stop here to see a little of a show featuring one guy and two gals, which as far as I could tell seemed pretty good (nothing was hidden anyway) but I left after a few minutes because I find watching vanilla sex a bit boring.

Conclusion

The exhibition itself was very good. Before going in I thought that the 20 euro entry fee was a bit steep but that was before I discovered all the shows on offer. You could very easily pay this much or more for just one of the shows alone, in many places. The retail and promotional stands where interesting and I found the prices charged to be very competitive, for some items a lot less than you would normally pay for the same items in specialist shops.

The exhibition halls, although adequate, did not live up to the standards that I have come to expect from other exhibition halls in Belgium. Antwerp Expo just did not seem up to scratch.

To round up the exhibition was well worth it but the exhibition halls where a bit so so.

Would I go again?

Yes but I would like to see this at a better location. Hopefully I will go to the exhibition when it visits Gent Expo, in November, which I know to be a far better venue.
