The Perils of Pauline

An email received last month has led to another appeal for a Lost Spanking. This one comes from Tim who only dimly remembers a video he saw back in the early 1980s:

First of all I should say that I think this is from a soft porn film; certainly it was one of the first videos I rented back around 1982, when my local newsagent started a small rental business (as I guess many others did at the time). The film starts in a school, and a large busty girl is sent to the Head, where he proceeds to cane her over her panties. She leaves rubbing her bottom. This made a huge impact on me at 19.

I think she goes on to become a model, and I believe there is another caning later on, with a jealous fellow model. For some reason I think Penelope may have been in the title.

Sorry that this is all so vague, but nearly 30 years on my memory tends to be a little faded. Still, if you can help at all I’d be grateful; I certainly enjoyed the scene at the time.

I certainly remember the period we’re talking about here when video rental outlets suddenly appeared everywhere. I must have gone through half the titles in my local newsagents hoping to find spanking scenes, but didn’t have as much luck as Tim! While it was interesting to hear about this I was a bit doubtful about being able to find it considering he didn’t provide a title.

Fortunately Martyn came to the rescue, identifying the film immediately as “The Perils of Pauline” (not Penelope) and it turned out there was a good reason why he knew all about it…

It is indeed a soft porn (very low budget) which was made in my home town in the early 80s, I think. There was a bit of a stink in the local press when it got out that a porn film was being made in the area! They did some shooting outside the local grammar school for girls – Pauline going through the gates etc.

I would imagine that nowadays the school would sue the makers of the film, but back then I don’t think anyone cared. The caning (by today’s standards) is very mild but the girl had a very nice bottom. I have no doubt that in the more innocent times of the early 80’s a lot of young men (and old) found this scene extremely exciting.

About 10 years ago I was in a shop where they were selling off hundreds of old videos and I did see it there on offer for £1! When it came out in the early 80s it probably retailed to video rental shops for about £50!

This sounded like problem solved BUT I couldn’t find any evidence of the film online at all. Just to complicate matters, there are no less than four films with the same title listed on IMDb but none of them are the right one.

So it’s over to you dear readers. Can anyone provide more information about where to track the video down? Or even better, can you share the clip? Please contact me at the usual email (which you will now find top left of the page) if you can help.

Or just leave a comment below…
