Enchanted Masks

What power there is in words when they are capable of transporting
your consciousness into another character’s mind. As if you were donning
an enchanted mask, granting you the power to momentarily experience
reality through another’s eyes.

Characters in stories are
not contrivances. They are meticulously crafted, as vessels for readers’
imaginations to inhabit. Here resides a wardrobe of virtual costumes to dress up in, and play in.

When I first started exploring my kinky side, my then-girlfriend (now my Miss!) linked me to Pride And Obedience because she knows I love historical stories and I have a sort of training fantasy (learning positions, being expected to sit a certain way, acting a certain way in front of guests, etc.) It remains my favorite story of yours and your blog has helped me describe the things I’m interested in if I’m too shy or don’t know how to explain something I want!

I’m delighted these stories have helped you.

As I’ve written previously, acceptance and good examples are crucial in establishing and developing sexual confidence.

I know of many people whose erotic journeys that have started through the discovery or sharing of stories.

And each one fills my heart with joy.

A Picture and 1000 Words

I’ve just posted something new, the first part of an experimental series that couples a digital image of my creation with an original short story of a thousand words.

They say a picture is worth 1000 words. But what story will the image paint in your mind? Perhaps you’ll imagine something very different to me. So if you enjoy writing, feel free to write up and post your interpretation, I’m sure many would love to read it too…

Pandora’s Message in a Bottle

Over the years, many of you have been asking for audio recordings of these stories, so I’m delighted that the wonderful Pandora Blake has just recorded herself performing Message in a Bottle.

It’s fantastic to hear such an experienced performer reciting my words, especially a narrator with such a seductive voice. It’s the nuances of speech that make a great storyteller, and Pandora relates the tale as if she’s sharing an intimate secret with one of her closest confidants. She speaks playfully, revealingly and evocatively.

You will need to be a @dreamsofspanking member to listen to the full recording, but if you’d like a taste, you can listen to an excerpt of Pandora’s fantastic  performance here:

If you’re on Twitter, I’d highly recommend following Pandora too. She’s an active campaigner for sexual expression and freedom from censorship, and someone who strongly believes in deshaming kink. The world could do with more voices like her.

And if there’s a story you’d particularly like to hear recorded next, do leave a comment!

I really love your stories– I like visualizing spankings. But, the interesting thing is, I’m not actually a fan of it in my real life sex life. Thoughts? xEM

That’s the great thing about fiction, you don’t need to love everything that goes on in make-believe. Murder mysteries, thrillers and spy novels are hugely popular genres, but in real life their readers would be horrified by the kind of violence those books regularly describe. And that’s fine.

Likewise, it doesn’t matter if you don’t want to act out every sexual fantasy that turns you on. I think we all agree, spankings in real-life should be between consenting adults only. Yet stories of non-consensual spankings can be hot. Just as stories of murder can be exciting.

Erotic fiction is just make-believe with fewer clothes. A medium where we give ourselves permission to imagine things that in real-life we might consider dark, shameful, transgressive or even painfully uncomfortable.

That’s why we have such powerful imaginations, why ever since the dawn of culture we’ve loved stories and bards. Never be embarrassed by what you project in the theatre between your ears.

Through other eyes

I’ve been reading your stories for a long time now, I remember the first time a blog linked to your page and I clicked on Ups and Downs and I was enthralled that someone could write such long, thought provoking prose about spanking and make it so hot.

I’ve been into spanking for as long as I can remember and when I found out others were, it was amazing, yet I rarely came across anything that made it feel like art and not just something sexual and, most of the time, a bit corny. You describe – and describing doesn’t even sound right, your words put us right there in the scene, in the skin, of the characters – everything in such detail, it’s awe inspiring.

I hope you don’t mind me saying that although I’m gay (though I find aesthetic beauty in all genders and love/am attracted to the right person no matter what, it’s just my main orientation), you make female sexuality something incredibly enticing, as it truly is, and I have a real appreciation for that. Most F/F or F/M stories are hard for me to get into but yours have never failed to get me reading to the end in one sitting, or bookmarking it and eagerly going back when I can.

If you and your readers have no problem with me saying so, once I’ve read the story from the eyes of the girls, or even the male partner depending on which one, it’s effortless to find myself a part of your stories afterwards.

I like to imagine I’m a boy from the brother school to the one where all these naughty girls attend. He slips out of the grounds (perhaps as many do, maybe that’s where Marian got her idea of sneaking off with a condom in her pocket) and peeks through the windows, hoping to catch a ritualistic punishment going on and hoping not to be caught himself. Unable to tear his eyes away he stays the whole time and catches what the teachers – or the governess if he’s a young guest/neighbour of Firecrest Manor – do when they think there aren’t prying eyes watching, ones too wide and curious to know when they should turn tail and run! 

So yes, please know it’s more than just little girls and inspired women and straight men who find your work so pleasurable, you’re a goddamn gift to us all. Thank you!


Thank you for your very kind and thought-provoking words. It’s always great to hear how the stories allow readers to imagine and see new worlds through anothers’ eyes. What I like about spanking stories is they can be enjoyed by anyone: straight, gay, bi, asexual, top or bottom, dom or sub. Whatever your personal preference, each tale has characters with whom you might identify, and activities you can’t help imagining.

Regular readers will know that seeing through others’ eyes is a theme I often return to, it’s central to Grimoire, and in Glimpse the gender of the narrator is never even specified. This is because I believe arousing stories shouldn’t depend on characters’ anatomy, a good story is about exploring erotic possibilities, like authority and adventurousness, discipline and nurturing. And I think some aspects of sexuality are universal, whatever kind of human beings turn you on…

Star in my next story!

Your character submissions have been awesome, a big thank you to all those who’ve contributed! You are great.

Now I face the difficult decision of choosing a few characters to add the new story, which I’ll do over the Easter weekend. So if you want to make my task even trickier, there’s still time to submit if you hurry! Either reblog this post with your
character description, or message or email if you’d prefer to keep her
secret…
