Ouch, it HURTS!




I'm just back from my first shoot for http://www.firmhandspanking.com/ this year. And very super it was! I was very fascinated by the film 'The Bodyguard' when I first saw it as a teenager, and although I couldn't BEAR Mr Smug Costner being all humourless and miserable throughout, I did VERY much like the idea of being bossed around by a bodyguard. It seemed so interesting that even though she was the boss really, he got to tell her what to do. It's played on my mind ever since.

Alas, I am not famous enough to need a bodyguard. I've only ever been spotted on the street ONCE as Amelia-Jane, and the lovely chap was too polite to come up to me, he just emailed me later. And no one has EVER spotted Ariel Anderssen, much to my disappointment. But I live in hope. Having a bodguard is a very hot fantasy, because however horrid and bossy he was, it'd all be FOR MY OWN GOOD, and he'd probably be all capable and military and mmmm, strict. Not to mention trained to kill. HOORAH!

So this is what I decided to shoot for Firm Hand. Our location was a lovely hotel suite on a top floor in Central London, and I was a pop singer (who, mercifully didn't actually have to sing during the movie...). And I had a jolly lovely time, haughtily insisting I didn't need to be escorted on my shopping trip, refusing to go to a security briefing at an arena, and being generally horrid before escaping my bodyguard and having a traumatic experience with a STALKER and realising he'd been right all along.... I've never really shot a spanking romance before, and it was really nice to have a proper happy ending for once, I do hope it doesn't spoil it for anyone...

I really wanted to say my favourite line from the original film;-

'He's my BODYGUARD!', delivered in a sobbing voice after the poor chap had been shot trying to protect me. But he didn't get shot, so I jolly well couldn't. Huh.

I don't have any pictures from the shoot yet, just a VERY sore bottom (bloody wooden paddle - the cane had broken enroute so we had to do extra paddling instead...). But here are two from my shoot for http://www.restrainedelegance.com/ last week. I was a SPY. In a NUCLEAR SUBMARINE! It was tremendous!

Have a super week, everyone!

Bad Girl, doesn't even DESERVE a Blog...

In the olden days, before my blog started (in, umm, April...) I visited other people's blogs a lot (still do, natch...) and was very annoyed when they lazily didn't post anything new for days and days. And here I am, being even more annoying. Especially since I started rather well, I feel. But I did have flu, which gave me some time at home...

Here is a list of the things I've done since last time I posted. Some of them are interesting, some not. Please sort the list into two columns, clearly label them, and return it to me by Monday, class. (hmm, I've become a dom, or at least a teacher. How freaky - but it's almost midnight and I'm very tired, so I'm sure it won't last...)

1) Went to Devon, took all my clothes off, and made a travel documentary.
2) Danced on pointe for 2 hours (extremely badly) in Birmingham and hoped that it'd look ok for still pictures.
3) Watched Kill Bill with the BDM and wanted very much to be Uma Thurman. Especially in the training sequences when she keeps having to punch a block of wood, till she's like, BLEEDING.
4) Sadly said goodbye to the BDM and drove to Norfolk, where I spent the day being photographed with a selection of fruit and vegetables (I was particularly irritated by a large, flawless red pepper which I think upstaged me). Oh, lordy, this sounds rude. It was NOT a rude shoot, just a nice commercial shoot about eating more fruit and vegetables. Which I will not be doing, because I hate them....
5) Ooh, I have a fantasy about being made to eat my vegetables. Wheeee!!!
6) Met my cousin, who I haven't seen for 15 years. He turns out to be SUPER, and I hope he won't mind my saying this, but when BDSM came up in conversation, he turned out to be into LOADS of the same stuff as me which was lovely, interesting, and also made me wonder if all this stuff is usually hereditary? And he seems to have higher pain tolerance than me, which made me want to raise my game :)
7) Modelled for a 'lighting the nude' tutorial, run by a super photographer friend of mine. Which was entirely uneventful, except that I felt a bit sulky and didn't really do what anyone said...
8)Oh, gosh, there were more things, but I have to SLEEEEEEEEP. So shall write an ACTUAL post tomorrow :)

The Hive of Activity

Here is what I have been doing since I stopped being a producer and started being just a model again. I had a day's shoot at Restrained Elegance last week, and we shot some super new interesting stuff (interesting for me, at least). Here are a couple of frame-grabs from the first thing we shot. It's a piece to music, about a cabaret dancer who starts off happily doing her routine, but chains keep appearing from nowhere and restricting her every movement. Does she care? No, she just keeps dancing with the chains....

It was lovely fun, but I got huge ankle and wrist bruises from the metal cuffs. I'll post shots from the rest of the day next week, we did something cool with bamboo :)
And here are a couple of frame-grabs from another Restrained Elegance shoot which isn't edited yet. This was a member's idea, of a job interview which involves the applicant allowing herself to be thoroughly degraded in order to secure the post. I wonder if he'd been watching 'The Apprentice'? Suddenly the parallels are jumping out at me.... I love the picture below because I look so stupidly happy to be wearing the collar :)
And here are some lovely cane-marks. And hooray, she got the job! I do like the combination of CP and bondage - I'm awful at keeping still for caning, and it makes me feel a great deal safer to be restrained. I wonder if it'd be possible to be suspended from the ceiling while being caned? I expect so, I wonder if I dare try it....
And just because it's so fabulous, here is a frame-grab from my Spoilt Ladies Spanked shoot (the one which I directed and then realised I didn't like being in charge of). I love our horror-struck faces; we've just been caught fighting at a debutantes' ball. We are VERY spoilt.... And I'm afraid we get very severely punished....
In case there is any doubt (ha) the beautiful lady on the right is Niki Flynn www.nikiflynn.com and I'm on the left, wearing the most ludicrous dress I have EVER owned....
I'm on my way to a 3 day location shoot in Devon, but I shall post more when I'm home. Suddenly I want to talk on my blog a GREAT deal, and don't have any time...
