Cobbled this post from a few things I had on file, some which I have posted before. Spanking in the mainstream cinema is as old as the movie industry itself. Putting a pretty girl across a guy’s knee was a code for sex even on the Victorian stage, where in British pantomimes girls dressed as […]


While the world was obsessing about 50 Shades back in January another BDSM mainstream movie slipped under the radar. The far more inteligent and stylish The Duke of Burgundy is a British drama film written and directed by Peter Strickland. The whole look and feel of the movie is retro 1960s and early 1970s psychedelic […]


There is a scene in the movie The Notorious Bettie Page where Gretchen Mol, in the role of Bettie, explains to a fan that he can only photograph her from behind. This is because of obscenity laws that prevent any hint of the pubic region or as my grandmother might have quaintly called it, the […]


I have no idea where I found this but I had to laugh. Most likely I saw it on Tumblr sometime ago and no doubt a creative blogger created it. I love the expression on her face. If anyone knows the original movie why not comment.


Inspired by theatrical spanking posts over at the Spank Statement I did some futile digging into stage incidents of our favourite subject. It wasn’t entirely fruitful and I only turned up one play that was described but not named. I am only sure that it is a real play because it was later turned into […]

Although the girl takes it in good part and there is a suggestion that she deserved it, but the […]


Schadenfreude is a German word meaning ‘to take pleasure from someone else’s misfortune.’ This sentiment or emotion often goes to the heart of those interested in spanking and this is also true where consensual spanking is concerned. From time to time A Voice in the Corner gets comments and emails lamenting articles on real life […]


The intriguing title was that of a sub-file on my hard drive. Most of the material contained there has been published before, although there were an awful lot of newspaper clippings about spanking that had been collected from various sources and would need typing out for publication at some point. The 1920s does seem to […]


In the recent article on Steampunk Spanking I mentioned the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, the movie starring Sean Connery. What you may not know is that the movie was based on Volume One of a graphic novel of the same name published by America’s Best Comics and created by Alan Moore, Kevin O’Neil, Ben Dimagmaliw […]
