Where did that picture come from?
It is simply the picture of a young lady, with a cute bottom, that is being well punished with a wooden spoon. It seems like a fairly real scenario, has the domestic feel of a mom punishing her older teen daughter, and there is no doubt that the spanking she received clearly did the job. The copyrights are from 2004, which was nine years ago, from a well-known spanking producer and everyone must know who produced this picture. So, I will use the photo software that came with my computer and go ahead and crop out the copyrights and put this picture on my blog. But where did this photo really come from and what was the journey that it took before it ended up on a random blog with the copyrights removed?
Based on a discussion that took place yesterday on Fetlife, in which Fetlife contacted me to tell me that someone was using one of my pictures, and asked me if I would like it taken down. This person, with more than 500 pictures associated with his profile, none of which are his, had indeed posted a photo of mine, but the copyrights were still in place. I wrote Fetlife and told them no big deal, as at least people know where the picture came from. I understand that the Internet has changed, and what used to be mine, that people had to pay to see, now seems to be everyone’s for free. I am trying hard to be a realist and not get my panties in a bunch anymore about my content being so readily available, outside of my member’s areas.
But I want to take you back to the picture above, taken in November of 2004 and tell you the full story of what it took to produce it. As many of you know, my wife and I started spanking each other on film, in the late 90’s to help pay for graduate school. When we finished grad school the sites had really taken off and we decided to go full-time with them. We spanked out of our house for a couple of years and eventually opened up our 1st studio. We quickly added Lady D, and a webmaster, and took on Jessica and Brandi as full-time models with their own sites. This allowed for extra revenue and expansion, which led us to our 1st real production studio, a 4400 sq. ft. building that had all the space we required for many years.
It was at this point in our lives, around 2002, that we decided that we were going to make this a very real business and not just a couple that happens to film spanking videos. After countless meetings, legal consolations, and business plans we put a large scale plan into action. Over the next year we hired an office manager, a network technician, a video editor, a full-time accountant, a full-time tape and DVD duplicator who also handled our mailroom, and a graphic artist. We also hired Kailee, Cindy Baker, and Betty as full time production staff members/extras and brought on Coach as a full-time spanker. All three models were sent to 2 weeks of digital production training, to better learn the cameras and lighting. We did a full upgrade of all of the equipment and spent 10’s of thousands of dollars to make sure we had the best equipment money could buy for Internet based productions.
When we set this large scale plan into action, we wanted happy and secure employees. Every staff member had full medical, dental, and vision insurance with the ability to add family members. There was a 401k in place for everyone as well as an investment consultant that came twice a year to speak with the employees about their options within the company. Our initial work schedule was four days a week with Fridays off for everyone accept the person who ran our customer service. We recognized 15 paid holidays a year, gave two weeks paid vacation to all employees, as well as 10 paid “personal” days a year. We kept our staff kitchen fully stocked with every beverage known to man and healthy snacks that anyone could help themselves to.
We had decided from day one that how we would stand out in the industry was by how we treated our models. We created a model handbook and power point presentation so that any girl that walked through our doors would know exactly what she was getting herself into. We created a very detailed pay scale, so there was no confusion about what she would be paid for each scene. This pay scale was far beyond what we needed to pay any model for the work she was doing and was clearly the highest in the industry. We also had an all-female production team, so they were able to work in an environment in which there were always more women than men present. We took great pride in how we treated our models and this really allowed us to have more models than any spanking site had ever even considered hiring. At the time the above picture was taken, we had more than 50 models working for us.
In order to hire a model, we needed to advertise, which is not the cheapest thing in the world when it comes to adult advertising. But we took out a ¼ page add in a local paper, popular on college campuses, and it worked out well for us. We also put into place a model referral system in which any model that referred another, received money for the 1st two shoots of her friend. How well we paid our models, and how well we treated them, led to a 95% retention rate for all of our models. Once a girl shot with us once, she always wanted to come back.
So let’s dive into what it took to create that picture above. With a full staff in place and a proper studio to shoot the content, it begins. We pay for the advertising and then wait for our phone to ring. After an initial phone consultation the model is scheduled for an interview with our office manager/model coordinator. Her interview lasts close to an hour in which everything about what we do is explained. If it seems like a good fit for everyone involved, she is scheduled for a shoot. On the day of her shoot, before we film anything, the new model sits down with Lady D and I for 30 minutes as we discuss the reality of a shoot, what we are looking for, the legal aspects, the fact that we do report earning to the IRS and she will be receiving a 1099, etc. She also fills out all the form required by 18 USC 2257 as far as Federal laws documenting her age, with two forms of ID. During this time the production staff carried the equipment from the upstairs to the room we will be shooting in. Light and cameras are setup and the production begins. Lady d and I script the three scenes that the model will be doing and we get started. Each model films three scenes, all of which are filmed on digital video. In addition to the video, professional strobes are used with a high end digital camera to capture stills of the whole event. Over the next 2-3 hours, I, Lady D, the model, and 2-3 production people do what we can to create the best possible content. The goal is to film the hardest spankings possible without exceeding the model’s personal limits.
When the shoot is over, the model waits as our accountant cuts her a company check. As the check is being written the production team is busy preparing for the next shoot. The pictures that were taken from that shoot are loaded onto a large RAID array, which is shared on the network, so the graphic designer can take the photos, color correct them, resize them, and add copyrights. These photos are then put into a database, designed by our network admin, and are scheduled for updates to a site. The mini-DV video tapes are taken to the video editor and where he captures them onto another high capacity computer and begins the process of editing the clips. Once they have been color corrected, watermarks added, edited into clips that are the right size for download, and then compressed into various formats, these clips are indexed and put into the database for future updates.
At this point, the network admin takes charge of the content and is responsible for getting it online to our various servers. Being that we wanted the best and fastest sites out there, we chose to purchase several high end servers that were maintained and managed by a well-respected company. We went with OC3 connection, directly to the backbone, with multiple redundancies so that is any given server had an issue, it would automatically kick over to a backup box. To assure that content was never lost; we had the crew do nightly backups of our content and store those drives offsite. The servers were monitored 24 hours a day to assure that there was never a second that any of our sites went offline. Through the LAMP based database system designed by our network admin, he is able to upload all of the content where it sits on a server until the day that it is designated to update.
Now the content sits online where we hope that people will sign-up and view it. To get new members, we use various forms of marketing, mostly done by myself and the webmaster. Banner ads, both static and flash based are designed by our graphic artist. If we were successful, members come to our site and want to sign up. We pay various companies to allow us various options for billing. As an adult company we are considered “high risk” so the percentages paid to the processors are quite high. For our DVD sales and such, in which tangible goods are actually shipped, we have a “high risk” merchant account as well. But it is not just as easy as signing up for a credit card processor if you want to use VISA. VISA has a staff of people that go through each and every page of a website that want to bill through them and evaluate the content. In every case this is happened for my sites, I am given a list of content that is unacceptable that I have to remove. This is content that I have already filmed and paid for, that has to be removed, never to be seen…just the price of doing business with VISA.
Once a customer has finally signed up, they are free to enjoy the site and download whatever they want. Since we are looking at November 2004, this is back when bandwidth was very expensive. I am billed based on the Mbps that flow through the OC3 connections to the Internet that my servers experience. More than 20% of my membership sales each month go towards only the cost of bandwidth. To assure that all of our customers have a good experience, can report site problems, and most of all to make cancelling their membership as easy as possible, I have a customer service representative available during working hours, five days a week.
Once again, this is 2004, in which we had an administration running the country, which was not all that friendly to adult websites. To make sure that I not only met the Federal standards regarding record keeping requirement, but that I set the bar, I needed to have good legal representation. I needed a professional that could look at every detail of our sites and documentation. We went with the firm and the lawyer that represented Larry Flynt before the US Supreme Court. With a growing company that had full-time staff, part-time staff, and contract based models, we also needed consolation regarding taxes, so we also had a tax attorney. As people try to piggy back off the popularity of large websites such as mine, we also needed to go through the Federal process of registering our trademark, so none of the names of our sites could be used by other websites.
So this is a brief look at the money out of my pocket to make that picture possible. In addition to the talented staff that I could have done none of this without, there is my time. I poured my heart and soul into these sites to provide the best possible content that I felt I could produce. Before 2003, every job listed above, I did myself. People often comment that I have the best job in the world, and while I do get to spank cute girls on a regular basis, I worked my ass off to build a full scale corporation, and there was nothing easy at all about it.
So, that picture above, from 2004 that you are thinking about putting on your blog with the copyrights removed is the result of the work of so very many talented and dedicated individuals. I did not snap the picture on my phone and click “share” and it then appeared on some random website. Before that picture ever made it to your computer, at least a dozen people were paid in some part to make it happen. That picture puts food on my table and will help put my kids through college. In 2004 there was only one way to see that picture and that was to sign up to Realspankings.com and view it. I know a lot has changed since then and the Internet is all about file sharing, piracy, tube sites, and how you can get whatever you want for no charge. I am coming to grips with it and it certainly is helping to kill an industry. So, if you are going to take one of my pictures and put it on your blog, please do me the courtesy of understanding what really went into the production of that picture and leave the copyright in place. Maybe someone will view your blog and want to see the video that goes with that scene. Maybe they will actually come to my site and signup and like what they see. Maybe they will not try to find a pirated version of that video , which will allow me to film so many more just like the ones they love.

Bare bottom switching
After sending Miss Ivy out to cut and prepare three separate switches, I wore out her bottom and her thighs with all three. Filmed today for a future HD video update for the member’s area of Realspankings.com

Severe bare bottom paddling video
Sometimes a handspanking is just not enough. Sometimes even a hard paddling is not enough to get the job done. On those occasions, only a severe paddling will do the trick. Here is a good example of what is sometimes required to teach a proper lesson.
A hard bare bottom strapping in front of her sister and friend
Most spanking take place in private, but there are those situations in which a more public punishment is called for. In a recent update at Realspankings.com Miss Harlan found herself in trouble with both her sister and her best friend. All three girls learned that those who play together, pay together. This animation shows a small taste of the severe bare bottom strapping that Harlan received for her transgressions. Before it was all done, there were bruised bottoms and teary eyes for all three girls.
Realistic school paddling Video
What happens when a young lady tries to push the boundaries of the school dress code, on the last week of school? In many schools, that young lady is made to grab her ankles and have her bottom paddled until she is crying. Last week in the member’s area of Realspankings.com I explored this very concept and paddled 19 year old Abigail until her bottom was bruised and the tears were flowing.
A hard paddling is best for long term learning
Spanking serves many different purposes on different people’s lives. For most of us, spanking was something that took place in childhood, and its primary purpose was to serve as a punishment and as a deterrent. For many adults, the act of spanking serves a fun and sexy purpose and is used to spice up there love life. Other adult couples have taken it back to its roots and use it as a form of discipline within their relationship. At the very root of spanking, the goal is to provide the recipient with a stimulus painful enough to change their behavior. This process can be accomplished in two ways, the pain of the initial spanking and the sting that it provides, and then the long term pain and soreness that can accompany a well spanked bottom.
If the purpose of a spanking is for it to really be a punishment, then I feel the long term effects are just as important as the primary act of spanking itself. A proper spanking can indeed be a painful experience, as the implement is applied and creates a very painful stimulus. But the human body has a way of helping to cope with pain and very quickly into a spanking, the production of endorphins occur. This allows the naughty young lady to better deal with the pain she is experiencing. This also helps to sooth the soreness after a spanking, and the pain very quickly becomes sort of a warm glow that is not all that unpleasant. But if the overall goal of the spanking is long term learning, then a three minute process that ends with sensations that are not all that unpleasant will not suffice.
In my private life, when I apply a disciplinary spanking, my focus is that of long term learning, and not simply just a short and painful experience. Over the years I have learned that nothing achieves the desired long term results as much as a paddle. A hard paddling hurts very much while it is being applied and has the tendency to produce tears very quickly. But I am looking to provide her an experience that lasts well after the tears have dried. Just about any paddle, when used properly, has the potential for long term learning and growth. I have found that long term learning and growth are best achieved by bruising a bottom. Hard paddle swats, applied forcefully to the lowest part of the bottom, can leave a bottom bruised and sore for many days.
The long term soreness is an important part of the learning process. This allows the naughty young lady who has been punished to be forced to reflect on her behavior for many days. There are many hours a day spent sitting, and after a hard paddling, the simple act of sitting becomes a punishment in itself. A paddling does not just affect the skin when it hits a bottom; it compresses the skin and allows the muscles to feel the full weight of the paddle. This muscle soreness is the desired goal and assures that a young lady not only remains on her best behavior for many days, but that she is reminded of her past behavior.

A severe mouth soaping and spanking
So clearly I have a bit if a reputation as being a hard spanker. Much of it is personal preference, but most of it is the fact that I like to film realistic videos. An on camera spanking, which is depicting an 18-24 year old girl, getting punished, needs to be hard. The goal has to be tears and her bottom needs to be marked and sore for several days.
While I have filmed several mouth soaping scenes over the years, I have never really tried to apply a mouth soaping in a severe manner. So what are the elements that make a mouth soaping “severe”. Unfortunately for Miss Syrena, she was the girl who found out exactly how severe a mouth soaping can be. It began with a low stroke of the belt that landed on her thighs and not on her bottom. Her response was “God Dammit”, followed by “that hit my fucking thighs”. That was all I needed to hear in order for a “severe” mouth soaping to take place. I marched her into the bathroom, grabbed a bar of the soap from the sink, and required her stand with her mouth open while I lathered it up. For a typical mouth soaping, I would simply put the bar in a young lady’s mouth and move it around a bit, making a couple of such trips with the bar. But Miss Syrena was not that lucky. With each trip of the bar, I targeted a different part of her mouth.
For the 1st trip into her mouth with the soap, the goal was to just introduce the bad taste, and I made a quick trip covering the entire area. For the next trip into her mouth, the goal was to cover the roof of her mouth as much as possible.
With each trip, and as the water warmed up, the bar of soap began to create much more lather, allowing me to really get to work. For her next round, I covered what I think to be a very important part of a severe mouth soaping, and that is the teeth.
I focused on grinding the soap deep into her teeth, so slivers of soap stayed behind. While I will often pull a bar of soap against a young lady’s front teeth as I pull it out, for Syrena, I grinded the soap deep into the teeth in all areas of the mouth. I made sure that there was not a spot, in between any two teeth that did not have chunks of soap stuck between them. Once her mouth and her teeth were properly coated with soap, it was time to focus on her tongue. As the tongue is responsible for most of the taste in a mouth, I felt it was important that it received its own session with the soap. She was required to stick her tongue far outside of her mouth, so I could see well enough to rub the soap over 100% of it.
But for a severe mouth soaping, only covering the top is not enough to get the job done, so the bottom side of her tongue also got a full round with the bar.
Once there was no spot in her mouth that did not have complete and total coverage with the soap, she was required to hold it in place, so I could get back to spanking her bare bottom. I lifted up her PJ’s and got to work. Part way into the spanking, I could tell she was having difficulty, as she was beginning to choke on the soap. I allowed her to remove the bar of soap, and to spit a single time, in which time I bent her back over and got back to work.
When her spanking was complete, I moved her back to the sink, but before I told her to do anything, she spit out more soap, without being told to do so. While her punishment was complete at that point, it was her inability to follow directions that led to her spanking in the 1st place, so I had no choice, but to start again. With her mouth still foaming from the previous mouth soaping, I literally started the entire process over again. 1st the entire mouth, then the top of the mouth, then the teeth, and both sides of the tongue again…before it was all said and done the bar of soap made 9 separate trips into her mouth. It all ended with several minutes of standing with the bar in place before she was finally allowed to spit and rinse.
It is certainly the most severe mouth soaping I have ever administered and it was highly effective. When the entire scene was over she told me that she would take a wooden paddle on her bare bottom, any day, over the mouth soaping such as she just received. The 8 minute, HD, mouth soaping video went online last Friday in the member’s area of RealspankingsInstitute.com

What turns me on about spanking and private discipline highlights
While we all love spanking, everyone’s kink is highly specific. I see this all the time in the many requests and emails I receive on a daily basis. For everyone that loves hand spanking and OTK, there is another that hates it and wants to only see bare bottom with a girl grabbing her ankles. I am not exactly sure how our kink evolves, but certainly childhood experience has a lot to do with it. For those models that I spank, that are truly into spanking, their particular desires tend to be influenced by how they were spanked growing up. For many of us, our thoughts and desires were shaped by things we experienced, saw growing up, or accounts from friends that were spanked. I grew up in Texas where the paddle ruled in the schools and the belt was the implement of choice in the home. I am sure this had a direct effect as to why school paddling scenes and belt over the jeans are two of my very favorite scenes to film. This was the world I grew up in, this is how I was first exposed to real life spankings that existed outside of my head, and it has had a big influence on what I like to see as an adult.

Naked and Embarrassed before her spanking
Never underestimate the power of having a young lady undress and making her stand fully naked prior to her spanking.

New spanking models for August
This month we have shot two new models, with another two new models scheduled for Sept. The first is Miss Stevie, who is not new to the industry, so she did not get the normal 1st day light spankings. She jumped right in and took a fairly hard profile spanking. For her second scene I blistered her bottom with my heavy leather belt and she took it like a champ. When discussing what she wanted to be spanked with for her final scene, she surprised us all and went for the 32” long, 1/2” thick, tiger cane...which no model has ever requested. This is the biggest cane we have ever owned and it packs a punch. She endured 12 full force strokes, the last 6 on the bare and hardly even marked. This girl has a bottom made for spanking. Here is a preview of her upcoming updates:
The next new model is Miss Jordan. She is 30 years old and has a beautiful smile. She was a little nervous about being spanked, but loosened right up. During her profile she went into a detailed account of the spankings she received growing up, until the age of 12. She was not only spanked by her mom and her dad, but it seems that grandpa had a paddle with holes in it that hung in the basement, and she details more than 1 trip down into the basement for a hard paddling from gramps. She did our standard 1st day profile, hard strapping, and an arrival at the Institute. Take a look at her black and blue bottom below and you will see that she did not have a light day. Her butt was so marked and sore, that she had me take pictures of it with her phone so she could txt pictures to her good friend Monica, who always used to come home and show her bruised bottom after a shoot.
