A blast from the (recent) past
I look at the various spanking photo blogs on a regular basis, just to keep up with what’s circulating out there. Oftentimes I see the same pictures posted and reposted, but sometimes I see something fun and new. As one would expect, I enjoy the photos best when they’re of someone I know.
Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of photos floating around of former spanking starlet Sierra Salem. She wasn’t in the scene more than three years or so, but she made quite a splash while she was here, and I had many fun times with her. I miss her, and feel nostalgic when I come across her pictures.
Not sure what company this is from — Firm Hand, perhaps? — but that’s Ralph Marvell doing the honors. Look at that beautiful girl! You could get lost in her eyes.
When I first met her at a small house party, she had just turned 18, and she was so shy, she could barely look at me. But her curiosity and desire won over her shyness, and soon she broke into the video scene with Shadow Lane’s Prep School Punishments (one of my favorites of theirs, BTW).
Sierra was beautiful and had a lovely, lithe dancer’s body — and she had absolutely no clue about how stunning she looked. She was bright, funny, and very fragile. Compliments made her joyously happy. Mean-spirited comments crushed her.
In 2005, she and I traveled together back East twice (in June, and again in September) to work for Spanking Epics. I got to spend a lot of time with her, as well as shoot with her (and yes, share a bed with her — queen-sized, you pervs — in one of the hotels we stayed in). Of all the fun stuff we did, I think I enjoyed our final scene together the most. On Sunday night after three days of shooting, when we were having a bit of a wrap party, she playfully challenged me to a “spank-off.” One thing led to another, the cameras and other equipment (which had all been put away) were broken out once again, and we shot the completely impromptu Great American Spank-Off, with Keith Jones and Steve Fuller.
Here she is, challenging me:
When she was still living here in So. CA, she had a 21st birthday party, sharing it with Samantha Woodley (they have the same birth date; Samantha is two years older). I was lucky enough to attend, and got my absolute favorite picture of the two of us. For whatever reason, that child loved to lie on the floor, on the pavement… Me? Not so much! But I did it for the birthday girl.
Shortly thereafter, she moved away, and left the industry.
People still ask me sometimes what became of her. I can tell you this much — she is now 27, and she and I are still in touch on Facebook (under her real name). Sometimes I will comment on or “Like” one of her pictures/posts, and she will do the same with me. And if you think she was a pretty young girl, you should see her now. Some of the pictures she posts take my breath away. She should have been a model — not just for spanking, but mainstream.
She used to call me her big sister (which was damn generous of her, considering I was old enough to be her mother). 🙂 I miss you, little sis!
In other news, more people to miss — the good folks of Alpine Sierra Studios (home of Spanking Court, Sternwood Academy and Spanking Ms. Cali). Cali and Heinz have been extremely busy with their primary business and realized they simply didn’t have the time to devote to keeping up A.S.S., so reluctantly, they have decided to close it down. The site is still up; I’m not sure when it will disappear.
What a bummer! Back in February, Cali had mentioned to me that Sternwood Academy was considering hiring a “naughty secretary” (yours truly), and I was so looking forward to that, but now it isn’t to be. But at least I was fortunate enough to work with Spanking Court in 2011, and I have many very fond memories from there. What a great group of people. And of course, co-starring with the lovely Dana Kane and the Court Disciplinarian was delicious.
Ah well… onward. Shadow Lane in a few weeks; more new memories-to-be for my treasure trove.
No Steve this week. He’s vacationing in Hawaii. I miss him, too… but he’ll be back. 🙂
