So today we're looking at a website called Lupus Spanking and before I go any further, I should probably let you know that the website has absolutely nothing to do with the chronic auto-immune connective tissue disease known as Lupus. Instead, the site is devoted to offering you and the rest of its members spanking movies that are both brutal and thrilling.
Just so you know, the "Lupus" in LupusSpanking actually refers to Lupus Pictures. It's an independent production company that is world renowned for releasing films that feature elaborate costumes, great sets, gorgeous models and more corporal punishment than you can shake a paddle at.
There are about 140 full-length movies available to you and most of them can be downloaded both in clips and in full-length versions. Newer ones come in MPEGs, while older ones are in RealPlayer files. The videos offer average-quality playback for the most part. There may be older ones that are below average in quality.
These movies are high-quality productions that show that Lupus Pictures' reputation is well deserved. Their flicks have plots, decent acting, nice camerawork, musical scores that actually add to the scenes and, as mentioned before, good costumes and sets. Some of them are posted in more than one part, but I get the impression that these are more like separate scenes sharing an overall backstory and theme.
The ones I watched weren't in English and didn't come with subtitles, but the language issue shouldn't prevent you from enjoying the corporal punishment once it gets started. Besides, somehow the dialogue that I assume was in Russian sounded all the more forceful, commanding and intimidating in ways that English just can't muster.
I managed to find 34 photo sets corresponding to some of the newer productions. The images are big, but maybe not always ideally crisp. I think that they're probably shot at the same time as the footage and can be slightly blurry merely because of the type of still camera being used. It kind of gives them an old-fashioned look (although they are of course in color) that fits with the period costumes of some scenes.
They add a few clips every other day. Currently, there's only been one full video added in the past 30 days, although they have started to add the clips for the next one. You might occasionally see two videos added in a month, but generally it's going to be just one.
You can check out a bonus site dedicated to behind-the-scenes clips and interviews from the various Lupus Pictures productions. You also get access to streaming videos from other spanking sites, but just keep in mind that whether its these scenes or the streams for some of this site's own vids, the embedded Flash player has to preload before you can skip ahead in the footage.
I think a few years ago I would have felt like this site was decent. It certainly can't be faulted in its production values, but I would say that people's expectations have risen when it comes to the quality of video they expect. In the end, Lupus Spanking could do with better videos to justify its price and to do justice to its well-made content.
