Two Big Meanies - page 6
I've joined more than one web site in the past just to look at naughty pictures of Claire Adams. So when she moved in with the House of Gord folks a couple years ago, I was really excited to get to meet her (my day job is making their computers behave). They live a ferry ride away though, so I didn't really get to hang with her much. She moved away to LA before we started doing Two Big Meanies, but eventually she came back to visit! We got to shoot, had a great time, and Lauren and I are so going to be fighting over who gets to play with her next time she's up here. ^-^
We did sort of a two-and-a-half part scene. The 'half' was us just warming up roughhousing around a bit. Claire's a contortionist, so wrestling her was interesting... The middle part of the scene was very simple endurance play- her alternating between standing with her arms out to her side, and doing pushups, while I 'helped' (I somehow gather pushups are more difficult with a TENS unit holding the sole of your foot in a cramp). The last part of the scene was me doing some _mean_ things to her with electricity, starting with her toes zip-tied to the fence back behind her head...
I think the endurance play edited down very nicely- obviously we don't want to show the whole thing ("here we are waiting for her muscles to get tired"), but there ended up being plenty of interplay to keep it interesting. What we set up, more or less, was that she'd hold her arms out to her side, until she wanted a break which she could get by doing ten pushups, after which she'd go back to holding her arms out. I'd do really painful things to her feet to keep her motivated during the pushups (I'm not a foot fetishist, but that ended up being the theme somehow)- mostly TENS unit and pokey-zappy-thing, with some impact play. I also had fun experimenting with pushing her arms up or down, and punishing her if they got too far from 90 degrees. We did this for quite a long time, she was thoroughly exhausted by the time we were finished- it edited down to around twenty minutes but went on a lot longer.
The assorted electrical play in the second part is probably some of the most intense fear and pain play we've had on the site. She's tough and we connected well, we took that and ran with it. We started out with her lying on her back, with her legs stretched up and apart over her head and behind her, and I used zipties to fasten her toes to some chainlink fencing attached to the wall. She then recited 'this little piggy' while I shocked each of her toes with the pokey-zappy-thing (like an electric flyswatter, but meaner). Eventually I moved down the backs of her legs, and took advantage of her spread-open pose with it. One of the advantages that toy has over the flyswatter (besides being able to reach into small sensitive places), is that you use it a couple different ways. If you charge it up, then touch it to someone's skin, the electricity arcs across, making a nice painful POP. If you touch it to someone's skin, _then_ charge it, it more directly triggers the muscle. You'll understand why these are so handy if you watch the video; there's a fair amount of screaming and tears involved.
I slid the electrified speculum into her while she was still spread and attached to the wall, but had her stand up before we started doing anything with it. The idea I started with was to have her walk and try to hold it in while I used it to shock her, but she had no challenge at all keeping it in with just muscle tension. So change of plans, just her and I playing with anticipation and pain. One of my favorite parts of the video is in here, it's fairly subtle and perhaps easy to miss in with all the other flashy stuff. It's an extended closeup of her mascara-streaked face, starting with her nodding at me to go ahead and turn it up again, gradually shifting as she struggles with it more and more, then screaming, then a wonderful Moment with her holding my hand against her chest as I turn it down. We pushed hard in the last third of this shoot. It might look scary but we were both _really_ good to go, Claire had a great time. We actually played even a bit harder than what's on the video and could have gone further, but I knew we weren't going to be able to use the footage. :/ I'm hoping we'll get a chance to play off-camera next time she's up, in addition to more shoots!
She also gave us a very good exit interview talking about her experience of the scene- we do this with pretty much all our shoots, but some stand out (Candy's another one). Claire is smart, articulate, enjoys and thinks about what she does, and I felt really fortunate to have the opportunity to play with her.

Playing with Dreina is always a great pleasure for me. We have happy, effortless chemistry (the result of years of off-camera friendship) and a fun sadist and brat dynamic. :) She's willing to try just about anything and she loves impact play, which is definitely a bonus! She's one of my favorite bottoms for doing lighthearted, silly-but-intense scenes with - scenes like this one, in fact.
I thought that it would be entertaining to put a new use to my gaming dice. (I can hear you snickering. Stop it.) I assigned a body part to each value on the 6 sided die, a mean striking implement to each side of the 4 sided, and used a 12 sided die to determine number of strokes. Of course, I cheated outrageously, but Dreina wasn't really in a place to complain. *g*
I had a nice big chart that helped make it look as though I wasn't just making up the rules as I went along. I was, of course, but the chart made it seem like everything was above board. We started off with a pre-scene interview and a review of the rules** of the game.
I did actually have one "hard and fast" game rule: that anytime Dreina made a smart ass comment, I was going to paddle her mercilessly. If you've seen any of the shoots that we've done with her previously, you'll know that this was akin to telling her that she was going to be in trouble every time she inhaled.
Once I had her firmly attached to the ceiling, I gave her a taste of a few of the different implements so that she would know what the stakes were - no, that's a lie. I just like swatting her.
The first implement that came up was the paddle, a toy that Dreina is intimately familiar with. The thin synthetic cane that followed it was a new sensation for her, though! It's some of the most pure, wicked sting that you can imagine, and it's light enough to use on delicate areas. It leaves lovely welts, too.
Somehow, Dreina kept rolling 12's--the highest amount of strokes possible. Isn't that strange? Of course, I might have been helping the dice along... just a bit.
She also kept rolling for canes, so she was developing some nice stripes all over that lovely skin by mid-scene. When it seemed like a short break from impact play was called for, I chased her around with the "poky-zappy thingy." It's too bad that the lights were too bright to capture the sparks arcing from the tip of it, but at least we got the sounds (both the *pop* of the toy and the indignant noises from the girl) on the video.
This went on for quite a bit--she'd roll the dice, I'd change them to whatever number suited me, she'd complain, I'd paddle her for complaining, and then I'd swat her nice and hard with a cane, paddle, flogger, or my hands.
Earlier in the shoot, Dreina had promised me that she would give me anything I wanted in exchange for refraining from I-don't-remember-what-dastardly-act. I decided that what I really wanted "anything" to consist of was tethering down one ankle and then slapping her cunt a bunch. I knew that it would be tough for her to process--all the impact we did there had been--but I also knew that she could do it and that seeing her struggle would be extra-hot.
We finished up with something satisfying for me (chasing her with the aforementioned zappy thing) and something satisfying for her (spinning around while being flogged with horsehair, kind of automatic-carwash-style). We were both too done in by then to wind things up to a dramatic climax (or any kind of climax, really; I guess we'll save the big vibrator for the next shoot), but we ended with smiles and laughter and with both of us wanting to play again, which is even better in my book.
**I get to do whatever I want and you get to take it because you're chained to the ceiling.
It was gawdawful hot when we shot this, and I wasn't looking forward to wrestling around in front of all the hot lights. We came up with a good plan, though- a whole scene built almost entirely around ice and water. We started with my usual roughhousing against the wall (plus the first time we used the pokey-zappy-thing!), but once she was thoroughly soaked switched to hard impact play and penetration with a big camo-colored cock, combined in various ways with cold water, hot water, and a couple hundred pounds of cold ice.
This was the first time Rose Algren and I had played together, so the initial smacking-her-around-against-a-wall bit of the scene was important for us both to get a feel for each other. Rose looks pretty femme, but she's tough in my favorite way- she likes to push hard. You can also hit her nice and hard (no idea how long those bruises on her thighs lasted), but the fun part for me is someone who'll let you take them to tears and stay right there with you. Rose also bounces back really fast, which is entertaining- you can do something that hurts so much she'll be in tears, but give her a few seconds to recover and she'll be giggling and asking you to do it again. As we've gotten to know each other I've figured out more of how she works, but that first bit of our first scene is hot to watch.
We did a lot of different stuff over the course of this shoot, even edited down pretty aggressively it's long. Trying to motivate her to let me use the pokey-zappy-thing on her crotch was fun. I used a metal ruler for this, and came back to it periodically- slapping her pubic mound with it left some pretty marks. Spanking her breasts with it as we were working toward the end of the scene, I was tapping pretty lightly until she said "you should really hit me with that thing." You'll be amused by what she did immediately afterwards, of course... :/
We did a bunch of wrestling around with me trying to apply blocks of ice to various portions of her anatomy, holding her down in the ice while drenching her with hot and/or cold water, and that worked great. Fucking her while she was on hands and knees over the ice didn't work super well, but using a light foam bat to beat the base of the dildo later went swimmingly.
One tricky thing about all the water and ice play was that our only location for it at the time was the shower at the Wet Spot. This meant that Rose and I were crammed in to a smallish room, along with lights and three camera people. This was actually quite challenging but I think we pulled it off. Working in three dimensions made it- Maxx was running one video camera from the top of a ladder in one corner, Red was running the other tucked low in to a different corner, Kurt was running around taking stills and trying to stay out of everyone's way (although he did catch his camera strap on one of the shower handles as he was creeping under it, leading to an inadvertent shower). I'm not even sure how Maxx managed to survive up near the ceiling with the lights going...
One of my other partners and I teach various workshops on BDSM skills here in Seattle, one of my favorites is coming up this weekend. We've been teaching this particular class maybe twice a year since at least 2000, and it's really fun to teach because there's such a visible difference between people coming in and going out. It's a lot of work, but much easier to feel accomplished afterwards compared to, say, the verbal play workshop where the skills change is less physically apparent.
Anyway, official blurb after the cut...
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16
2:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Beginning Flogging by Flirt's Inc.
Wet Spot membership not required
Flogging Workshop! Ever wanted to learn how to flog someone in a way that is safe and fun? Ever tried but thought that there might be some basic skills that would help improve your scenes? Great! We can help!
Flirts Inc. will be offering an afternoon workshop with Russell H. and Erika G. teaching basic flogging skills. We'll touch on some basic SM skills and safety, talk about and demonstrate basic flogging technique, and help everyone practice the basic building blocks of flogging.
A big part of the learning experience will be practicing. This will give you something to take with you and use at home or at a fetish party afterwards! The way this will happen is we'll have everyone pair off, and one person will act as a 'practice dummy', wearing heavy clothing for protection (leather jackets are great!), while the other person practices what they've just been taught. The partners will then switch off, and after a bit we'll move on to something else. This is not in any way 'playing'. The person being a practice target is there to provide a protected back to practice on, possibly with some feedback about where the tails of the flogger are landing. It is not a scene, so this will be a safe place to learn some skills without having to worry about impressing anyone.
This workshop is open to people of all genders and sexual orientations. No undressing will be required, and the pairing off for practice should be casual and friendly. We would ask that everyone bring some piece of heavy clothing to wear for protection during the practice portion (again, leather jackets are perfect). If you have a flogger of some sort, we would ask that you bring that as well to use in practice. (We'll bring a couple extra, but practicing with your own is best, and our collections are limited.) Be aware that this can be real exercise, starting out appropriately fed and hydrated will improve your experience.
We are requiring advance registration for this class, because there is a maximum number of people we can effectively teach in this context. To register, send email to
. If you can't register via email, please leave a message at (206) 650-5234 or (206) 669-5881, and someone will get back to you. If you register within two days of the workshop and you haven't received confirmation from us, please just show up and we will register you at the event.
Both Russell H. and Erika G. have been active participants in the Seattle Leather scene since 1993, they each bring with them experiences from both top and bottom, dominant and submissive, as well as spiritual erotic practices.

London is a friend of ours who really kinks on medical play and sharp, shiny things. I'd done a shoot with her before focusing on that, but I had another idea. A local SM shop (unfortunately no longer in business) had a 'extra-scary-things' cabinet with some interesting toys in it. The two that had been catching my eye lately were a stainless-steel speculum with terminal for attaching electrical leads, and a knife similarly equipped. I was looking for an excuse to buy them, so I called London and asked how she felt about electrical play. Surprisingly, she hadn't done much, just a bit of messing around with a violet wand. One trip to the store later... ^-^
We spent pretty much the whole shoot with her in the sling (other than a brief break where I chased her around it), in just the one position, but it doesn't feel monotonous. We used the electrified knife, electrified speculum, an electrified butt plug I already owned, regular contact pads, a non-electrified but thoroughly huge dildo, plus a toy that Lauren and I still call 'the pokey-zappy thing' (sort of like an electric flyswatter, but with just a pair of contacts on the end of it- the person who makes it calls it a 'tzapper'). With all the different ways those can be combined and applied to one person's genitals (poor London- not), plus our good chemistry, we really had a good time.
The interesting stuff with TENS unit play is experimenting with different current paths, and different waveform patterns. The electricity flips nerve switches, and makes muscles contract. So, a hard pulse every half second feels very different from a light hundred-hertz buzz, feels different from an escalatingly-intense *squeeze* as you watch the dial turn up. Then running that current through two poles on a butt plug, or contact patches to either side of someone's clit, or one pole on an electrified speculum and the other on the flat of a knife blade touched to some poor girl's perineum... provokes different sensations. Also, current density changes as the point of contact gets smaller- even a very small amount of current run through the edge of a knife is _really_ intense.
We had good interaction throughout this scene- London is very good about communicating where she's at, both verbally and via various forms of screaming. ^-^ She dropped into a nice headspace over the course of the scene, and at the end was asking me very nicely to please use the pokey-zappy-thing on her inner labia and handling it pretty well. The flash of the spark is very quick, but still shows up on the video probably half the time. The 'pop,' and her reaction, show up every time.

This was actually the second of the first 3 shoots that we did with Madison Young - and all in one day! It also was one of the first shoots that we did with a model that we didn't know off-camera. Madison is an amazing bottom with an incredible amount of stamina and pain-processing skills. Needless to say, we had a blast working with her!
Russell had perhaps a bit too much fun, and as a result, marks from the first scene are still quite visible in this one. *g* It adds verisimiltude to the storyline, though, which features Madison as the innocent-looking little sister with a secret sadomasochistic lifestyle...
The poor bored girl was all alone and just looking for a simple way to pass the afternoon - until I walked in and caught her in the middle of her naughty self-pleasure. It seemed that she was too embarrassed to stop me when I snooped around her room and "discovered" her secret stash of SM toys.
Whatever is a concerned big sis to do when she finds out the sort of debauchery her kid sister has been getting up to? Why, teach her a lesson, of course--by giving her a taste of each implement in her extensive stash!
We got started with some simple bondage and breast torture. (It's worth mentioning here that Russell had already worked her nipples over very thoroughly in the previous shoot, so she was nice and sore before we even got started!) Afterwards, I put her on her hands and knees with that adorable little ass in the air, and worked it over with a belt and some other nasty toys.
She began to get squirmy after all of this attention, so I put her into a simple (really simple, I am so not a rope top) chest harness and did mean things to her inner thighs and breasts with a thin little whippy cane. Having her spread her legs open wide for the cane lured me to her pretty cunt, and we moved on to a fun genitorture session.
The end of the scene was the hottest part, in my opinion. I bent Madison over a high wooden stool, tying her wrists to it so that she couldn't wriggle away. With gloved hands, I scooped some extra-hot sports rub out of the container and pushed it slowly up inside her asshole. Once it began to do its work, I picked up a paddle and then a cane to make sure that the outside of her ass felt like it was on fire, too!
I may be a big meanie--it is part of the job description--but I wasn't cruel enough not to let her finish what she'd started before I walked in. I figured that she deserved a reward for suffering so prettily though all that I did to her. I left her tied over the stool while I pressed the vibrator against her clit, and watched while she writhed her way to an incredibly sexy orgasm. (Which produced some extremely hot stills, of you're someone who kinks on faces in pain and pleasure like I do.)
I'd love to have Madison back sometime. The next time she came to town, I was camping in the desert, and Russell got to keep her all to himself. (From whence came Madison in Trouble, Parts 1 and 2.) He'll probably want to arm-wrestle me for "dibs" the next time she comes back, but if this shoot taught me anything, it's not to let him go first!
Those of you in Seattle should really make sure to go to Cirque du Noc this Saturday. Much shopping at the bazaar, then a show/fashion show/auction, then a very shiny fetish ball. This will be the third year we've done this (I DJ, and handle sound and lights for the ball), the other two were quite fun.
Last year we did the fashion show/auction and the fetish ball in the same space. Even with a couple days to prepare for it, the changeover from clear stage for the show to lights, tables, and sound system for the ball was, um, exciting. This year we're holding it at the Seattle Center, with a dedicated space for the ball. Look forward to seeing you there!
One of the many things that I do when I'm not making porn is write a "sex and relationships" column for my college newspaper under the not-so-secret pen name of Ms. Scarlet. I thought you all might be interested in the most recent installment, since it draws directly on my experiences as a BDSM player and a porn producer. -Lauren
Hello, readers! I didn't receive any letters this week, so I'm going to try something a bit different. This is the last column of the quarter, and possibly the last column, period, so I wanted to leave you with some thoughts to remember me by.
Recently, I gave a presentation on pornography to a college class. I talked about the history of porn, how I got involved in making it, and why I viewed it as a form of activism. I also touched on some of the legal challenges facing pornography producers in the United States, particularly the recent wave of obscenity charges from the FBI's new "anti-porn" squad.
We discussed the legal definition of obscenity, which states that material is obscene if it depicts or describes sexual activity in a way that an average person, using "contemporary community standards", would think appealed to prurient interest, and if it does not have any serious political, artistic, literary or scientific value.
Ok, fine. But wait a second...whose community standards are we talking about? Seattle has pretty different standards from Alabama. Who, exactly, is an average person? What constitutes serious artistic value?
The problem with the definition of obscenity is that it's entirely subjective. Even Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, in attempting to describe it, had to fall back on the words, "I know it when I see it."
After the presentation, I asked the students if they had any questions for me. One raised a hand and asked, "How do you *personally* define obscenity?"
I was stumped for a moment. Though I disagree with the law's definition, I had never tried to form my own. Like Justice Stewart, I thought that I knew it when I saw it. So I stayed quiet for a minute, and I checked in with my heart and my brain, and this is what I found:
I think that denying people the right to make choices about what to do with their own bodies and spirits is obscene.
That can be related to sexual activity, of course. Rape is obscene because it strips away consent. Engaging in sex with those incapable of giving informed consent, likewise. But I think that the spectrum of obscenity is broader than that.
Creating laws that regulate the sexual behavior of consenting adults is obscene. Telling someone that what gets them off is sick or disgusting (when what gets them off harms no one), is obscene.
Cultural and moral policing by our government is obscene.
You may not agree, of course, but that's my personal definition. And in adhering to it, I'll let you form your own.
That's all for now, folks. Stay safe, stay sane, and own your pleasure just as hard as you can. Ms. Scarlet wishes you joy of it.
Nikki and I both like to wrestle. When we did this shoot[*], my last several had been all about wrestling with various people, and Lauren had said 'okay, enough with the wrestling for a little bit!' This was a very off-the-cuff scene, we only chatted briefly about what we might want to do the night before, and were both actually a little crunchy starting off. We've played enough together though that we can find things that work for each other pretty easily. Usually that involves wrestling. ^-^
This, however, was _not_ wrestling. I called it 'wrestling with increasing levels of handicap', but she kept insisting it wasn't any such thing, that it was being increasingly tied up while I took advantage of her. We started out normally, but I think she did a perfectly fine job wrestling (and being taken advantage of with groping, spanking, etc) with one thigh and wrist cuffed together. Eventually we progressed to an ankle tied off to a ring in the floor, then standing with a spreader bar between her legs and her hands cuffed behind her, but she kept struggling! (Well, mostly.)
Incidentally- we took a short break between wrestling on the ground and
chaining her upwrestling vertically. During that break, Kurt (our photographer, and one of her partners) pointed out that when she sticks her tongue out at you, she actually flips it upside-down! She demonstrated again, plus other neat tricks she can do _while_ her tongue's upside-down, but we were too slow to get this on camera. I spent the rest of the shoot trying (unsuccessfully) to get her to do it again- since we hadn't negotiated a resistance scene, she dug her heels in. We'll probably do that again with negotiation beforehand and hopefully you'll get to see it.
(*: We're reposting out of order. The other shoot up so far with Nikki was our first, this is our most recent, there have been several in between.)
We've done a lot of fun shoots over the past few years, and I have accumulated tons of great memories, but if I had to pick a very favorite, this would probably be it. This may also be the hardest I've ever pushed someone on a first scene, but Candy's and my connection was so good and she was so very articulate about her wants and needs that it just made sense to take us both where we wanted to go!
Candy and I have known each other for years, drifting around in the same sea of local perverts, but we had never played together before this scene. We both began to regret that wasted time when we got together to negotiate this shoot and realized that we were, in her words, "almost the same person." Our conversation revealed that we like to play in nearly identical ways, to the same levels of intensity and for the same reasons. That promised well for our scene--a promise that was amply born out.
Both of us forgot that the cameras were rolling pretty much immediately. We played hard and happy and with great chemistry until we were both completely worn out. I pushed her to tears a number of times, so if you like crying, this shoot will please you!
I started by securing her to the chain link fence with cable ties. That's intense, narrow bondage, but she looked gorgeous in it. Candy is a personal trainer, and I wanted to showcase all those lovely muscles.
I didn't use a lot of toys on her--I wanted the intimacy that hands-on torment can create. I warmed her up with faceslapping, hairpulling, deep muscle grabs, and solid impact from a pair of sap gloves. (The gloves, thick black leather with lead shot sewn into the knuckles, are among my favorite things EVER. They make a lot of appearances on the site.)
Whenever things got almost too intense, I switched to knifeplay, tracing the blade along her skin. That brought her back to me each time--another thing that Candy and I have in common is a love of pointy things. ("It's like sex for me," she said during our negotiations, pretty much guaranteeing that I'd use it at any opportunity!)
I also ran a couple of "zippers," rubber-tipped clothespins strung together on a line, underneath her breasts. I knew that those would be challenging for her to take. She doesn't process clamps as well as she does impact, but she took them beautifully. Her reaction to their abrupt removal was gorgeous, and inspired me to put them to the side to use again before we finished.
We took a bit of a break to rehydrate and snack. I was anxious to get back to it, though, and I think she was, too. When we began again, I asked her to extend one leg out against the fence as far as she could comfortably maintain it, and then used the flex cuffs above and below her knee to secure it there. That position left her cunt extremely exposed, which was just what I had in mind.
Once I was certain that she was safely bound, I started slapping her cunt, medium-hard at first, and gradually increasing in intensity. I told her that when she had absolutely had as much as she could take, to tell me and I would stop...but I would re-attach the zippers, this time beginning on the tender skin under her arms. She had told me before we shot that clamps under her arms were extremely tough for her to take, and usually made her burst instantly into tears.
She made herself take the cunt-slapping for a long time, pushing with everything she had and visibly struggling with it toward the end. By the time she asked me to stop, she was crying hard. The zippers brought out a fresh bout of tears as they were going on, so you can imagine (or better yet, watch!) how they were coming off.
I cut her bondage and brought her to the ground to cuddle while she bounced back to give a post-shoot interview. I was every bit as endorphin-high as she was by the end of things!
I devoutly hope that we get to have Candy back again soon. Russell has shot with her since we did this one (check out Reaction Shot if you want to see another hella hot scene with this yummy woman), but I haven't gotten my hands on her in too long. *g*
