Pinup Friday

Dec 8, 2017 by

Adding a coda to yesterday’s romp through yesteryear, today’s pinup features Roz and Bettie in a posed still shot from that same film session.

I read a quote from Bettie in Wikipedia regarding the sobriquet Queen of Bondage that has been given her. Apparently, she was not into bondage or spanking.

The deal with Klaw, however, was that the models did a four to five hour photo and film shoot most Saturdays, an hour of which featured bondage. If a model didn’t do the bondage, she didn’t get paid. Naturally, they all played the game.

So, although the hard smacking Roz gave Bettie on film was energetic and appeared realistic, you have only to look at the incorrect way she is holding her spanking hand to know that Roz is not a true disciplinarian.

 

And just because it’s such a classy shot that I love a whole bunch, here is a nude Bettie bonus to start your weekend off right.

That is all.

Devlin out.

Bettie On Film!

Dec 7, 2017 by

 

Here’s a black and white, eight-millimeter souvenir from the ’50s. This little gem would have cost a day’s pay to buy back then, plus a week’s wages, at least, for a film projector. Or a guy might have paid four bits ($0.50) to get into a smoke filled room off a back alley (just tell ’em Louie sent ya)  to sit on a wooden folding chair with twenty other guys to watch it.

But, like all Irving Klaw’s B&D films, there is no nudity, and the underwear isn’t even as daring as some women’s swimsuits at the time, so you’d have to be really desperate to watch girl-girl action to plunk for any of that.

I could find very little on Roz, but the delightful Bettie (not Betty) has shown up a number of times on the blite. She did, of course, do a great deal of nude modeling, and even appeared in Playboy the month before Jayne Mansfield.

In any event, do enjoy the scowling and the silent whip-cracking (I think she hit herself with that thing a few times) as dominatrix Roz Greenwood upends Bettie Page for a not at all faked bottom smacking.

Pinup Black (and White) Friday

Nov 24, 2017 by

Before letting her leave the house on the day after Thanksgiving with a pocket full of plastic and a really long shopping list, the smart uncle will remind his little girl that he is not made of money and give her a taste of what she is in for if she gets carried away and tries to break the bank.

Many thanks to Lynn Paula Russell for the fetching visual. Here, she is most ably demonstrating that, yes, a girl can hold the pose depicted in her magazine drawing whilst someone strict teaches her a lesson.

Some might call that suffering for one’s art. I doubt Paula is amongst those individuals. I expect she revels in it.

That is all.

A Lost Review of “The Extravengers” by PA

Sep 19, 2017 by

{Author’s Note – I tried to post this to Amazon, but they rejected it because they are awful people. This is not the first time that has happened, so if it ever happens to you when you try to post a review of one of Dev’s books, do tell him about it, and he will make sure it gets published, anyway.}

Think about chemistry — the mind-tingling, wit-appreciative British humor that constantly brewed between Emma Peel (Dame Diana Rigg) and John Steed (Patrick Macnee) as they combine forces to save the world from mayhem during the 1960’s TV favorite “The Avengers.”

 

Pair it with biology — the core-tingling, palm-itching, bottom stinging responses evoked by the delightfully rounded posterior of Dame Diana that so often filled the small screen in the clever series.

 

And there you have it — the best of both worlds for an audience devoted to both the cerebrally engaging and the physically captivating. How eagerly humanity as we know it — both those who have embraced their true selves and those still struggling with the battle — awaited (and continues to pine for) each new episode.

 

Unfortunately, such a titillating actual spanking pair has yet to appear on-screen and, it must be acknowledged, never will.

 

Happily, however, just such a combination of witty theatrical crime solving and This Thing We Do does exist in a companion realm.

We owe that to multi-book author and spanking romance doyen Devlin O’Neill, who has invited us along on a page-turning adventure that showcases his favorite leading lady, her urbane and very well dressed male crime-fighting partner, and also a third character, whom the author seems to know as well as he knows himself, in the spanking-as-speculative-fiction novel “The Extravengers.”

 

 

The first time I read this book, I indulged fully in my usual approach to any of the dozens of tales O’Neill commits to paper — that of speed reading until I reach the “good” parts, which I then savor repeatedly and at my leisure. Then, with my appetite for physically-focused tingle satisfied — at least, temporarily — I began again. The second read-through nourished both my brain and my funny bone.

“You won’t run a few simple errands, even as a personal favor to me?” Reed said as he dribbled the last of the bubbly into her glass.

“You think you can prey upon my helplessness, don’t you?” Ella replied. “Just like last time.”

“My dear,” he said, his eyes wide as he raised his glass to her. “I never prey. It’s against my religion.”

 

O’Neill, admittedly, was still honing his literary (and spanking) craft as a teenager while Peel and Steed were dispatching the naughty-doers on-screen, without benefit of canes or corners, so I am quite certain he had nothing to do with creating either the endearingly British repartee or the fantastic story lines that kept viewers coming back for more, week after week, but he could well have stepped in to fill creative shoes, had such been needed.

 

O’Neill, a popular Internet blog host, proves that ability in “The Extravengers” with his mastery of interplay between the main characters, combined with his spot-on ability to create dialogue the reader can hear falling with ease from the lips of the crime-fighting duo.

 

Once he adds his usual shuddery-feeling disciplinary descriptions of the delightful Ms. Peel getting what we all know she secretly yearned for through multiple BBC TV series, and you have one of O’Neill’s most delightfully satisfying books yet, on oh, so many levels.

 

 

Once you’ve read this clever story, you’ll feel compelled to search out episodes of the original TV show online. And you’ll view each scene with new eyes, hoping against hope that the script handed to Rigg and Macnee all those years ago will somehow be magically supplanted by O’Neill’s lively story line, instead.

 

Of course, that is not to be, but you can still enjoy the best of both worlds, thanks to the spanking fiction master and his spot-on (that would be “sit-spot,” of course) take on Emma Peel (Ella Teal), John Steed (Jon Reed), and the mysterious Desmond McSteel (Devl — oh, but you’ll figure that part out for yourself, I’m sure.)

Happy reading, then, and please, do share your own impressions of this clever and very satisfying book. It will encourage O’Neill to supply us with more stories, I am quite sure. Maybe some of them will even focus on the further adventures of Ella and Jon. I know that there are more tales to be told and bottoms to be warmed in this talented author’s spank-centric mind.

And I NEED them.

So will you.

That is all.

Princess Anastasia out.

Name The Stars

Jul 16, 2017 by

Here’s a little test for you movie aficionados out there — who are these people and why are they behaving in this extraordinary manner?

Well, the second part is easy, or a bit of it, anyway. This shot, which I never had seen before it popped up in an image search last week, is apparently a publicity still from a black and white film that might or might not have included a spanking scene.

The girl might or might not be Betty Hutton from Annie Get Your Gun, and the guy sort of looks like a very young Jim Hutton, TV’s Ellery Queen, though that is probably not the case.

What film they’re advertising is a complete mystery, but if we can come up with the people, we can probably work out which movie they were plugging.

Let the Wikipedia-IMDbing commence and do comment with anything you know or can find about this. 

Thanks!

Dev

P.S. We have a winner, boys and girls! Audrey’s BG identified the stars as June Haver and Mark Stevens in “Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now,” 1947. Good job, both of you! :-)

Paula Comes To Visit

Feb 3, 2017 by

Because she is such a lovely woman as well as a wonderfully talented artist, here are a few of her exquisite pictures for us to enjoy. This is the colorized version of the one I used (with Paula’s permission) on the cover of the revised A Maid for All Seasons, Volumes 1 and 2. The blonde’s name is Mitzi, or perhaps Flossie. I do not know the story that the artwork originally graced.

 

Paula often drew herself, in the literal sense, into her work. That cute, boy-cut hair is sort of a trademark with her, so this is a self-portrait.

Although, like most spanking artists, Paula depicted a great many female spankers, she is somewhat unique in that she also drew many strong and effective males.

 

Her period pieces are exemplary, also, and only a picky, toppy curmudgeon would point out that, if the man is right-handed, he is carrying his sword on the wrong side. He’s carrying his sword on the wrong side.

Of course, I adore her group portrayals. And if you think such tableaux are more indicative of a lusty male’s fevered imaginings than anything to do with real life, you have never spent a long weekend at Uncle Dev’s Camp for Wayward Girls.

Here is one that quite approximates a girl being called to Uncle Dev’s office for a discussion. Note the stitching along the edges of the paddle. I’m willing to bet that is a London Tanners product.

 

 

This fellow with the dark, wavy hair shows up with some regularity in Paula’s work. One must believe he has a real-life counterpart.

In this woodland scene, Mr. Curlyhair’s name is Adam; hers is Sarah. I want a tawse like that.

 

And just to finish for tonight, here is a possible depiction of a blite bus driver assisting the bus drivee to maintain her position during correction.

Not that I ever have required help in keeping a girl upended and bended, but I have to think that, should I ask for it, and the assistance be at hand, there would be no shortage of volunteers.

You sisters love one another that much, I am absolutely certain.

That is all.

Devlin out.
