As you may recall, before the recent blip in my blog production, I promised several website reviews, in each case where the Webmaster had kindly granted me access to their babies.
My access to these sites has now lapsed, and I don't think it's appropriate to go begging to them asking for further favour; they did their bit and I let them down.
In the circumstances I'd still like to talk about these sites, but, without access, I can't provide quite the level of detail that I have done in the past. And my finances do not allow me the luxury of purchasing a membership.
So then, I'll do mini-reviews.
I'm going to start with the accurately named Dallas Spanks Hard.
Prejudices first; I lean towards the milder side of the spanking fetish. I graduated from mainstream spankings, and, while I've grown to appreciate harder spankings as I've become more experienced, I still prefer sting and tingle to eye-watering burning.
In light of this I've tended to steer clear of Dallas, who is a watchword for hard spanking. When I contacted him we exchanged a couple of (for me) entertaining emails about the nature of prejudice, and, more specifically, my claim that my reviews are unbiased. I found Dallas to be extremely intelligent, and a thoroughly reasonable chap (yes, of course, I am English).
So then, a few details about the site itself. You enter through a page that spells out what the site is about; pretty girls spanked hard. The monthly cost is a very reasonable £15.54 (US$23.95) on a recurring basis, and as usual this is payable with CCBill.
The opening page is kind of in your face; large images, bright colours and lots to explore, including details of all recent updates.
It is easy to locate the download section, and there are masses of videos to collect. There is plenty to entertain you here.
Given the site's reputation it's easy to dismiss the content as simply models spanked hard, but there is a good deal of wit and invention here too. I particularly enjoyed the "I Love Lucy" styled series of films, and "I Dream of Janie" is tremendous too.
In fact, it's worth noting that while the punishment spankings are very hard, the more fantasy related ones are probably no harder than you can expect to see on Firm Hand or Punished Brats. Well, some of them aren't. Oh, just look around!
The technical quality of the videos is extremely high; Dallas has been doing this for a while, and it shows, with well-positioned cameras and smooth editing. Picture quality, in MP4 format, is very nice indeed.
You will recognise a lot of the models here, who include Audrey Knight, Samantha Woodley, Pixie, Amelia Jane Rutherford, Nikki Rouge, Abigail Whittaker, Ten, Sierra Salem and Danielle Hunt. There are lots of others too.
Dallas makes a lot of the fact that many of these spankings are real, often at the request of the models themselves, for offences that they have committed. He certainly pounds home the message.
The spankings themselves? They are hard, often prolonged, and Dallas isn't afraid to employ basically every implement you might wish. Fans of pretty much every spanking position are catered for, including quite a lot of my favourite OTK. The girls' bottoms redden quickly, and comprehensively, and there are often tears in evidence.
To be honest, some of the spankings are too intense and painful for me. This is purely a judgement based on my own taste. The odd thing is that, despite the extreme pain the girls experience, a lot of them come back for seconds. And thirds.
You could be forgiven for assuming that these Draconian punishments are rather grim, but I really don't think that this is the case. The models clearly get on well with Dallas, and both trust and like him.
So then, do I recommend the site? Well, slightly against my own inclination, I do. There's lots to see, there are some truly entertaining films, and the cost is very reasonable. Also, whatever your preference in the severity of spankings (and if you like them hard you really must join up), you owe it to yourself to see Dallas in action, if only so that you can say you've seen hard spankings, and can make an informed choice about what turns you on.
My advice? Give it a try.
All the best
