I can see how “Infrared Spanking” was conceived. Someone probably saw Paris Hilton’s night vision sex tape, and thought, “I bet it’d be cool to do a spanking scene like that!”
And I bet really WAS cool, in production. Spanking in total darkness has gotta be sexy! Without sight, all the other senses come alive. Ooh! The whiz of a whip, the brush of leather across the thigh… The thrill of not knowing where the next blow will come from, or where it’ll land.
Administering a spanking in the shadows, too, must be very sensual. Before each blow, you’d wanna size up your target: to caress each cheek before you smack just the right spot. And without marks or redness as a guide, you’d need to tune in to your partner’s breathing & vocalizations.
Yup, I can totally get behind the concept of this movie. But sometimes, a great idea on paper just… flops. Which is truly unfortunate because the performers, Black Cherry and DrK, are terrific! She clearly enjoys being spanked, and he is expert at titrating pain so she vibrates on the edge of pleasure. It’s thrilling to watch, or at least, it would’ve been, if I could’ve seen her lovely cheeks pinking up under his hand.
Or under his riding crop, or tawse, or cane… He employs all these implements upon Black Cherry’s bottom, and I’d have loved to behold his handiwork. But no. Illuminated thru night vision photography, Black Cherry’s cheeks glow ghostly green, and don’t show much change in color at all until the very end of the movie, where some darkish areas seem visible. Yawn. Without the subtle shades of spanked flesh to enjoy, I found myself staring at her neon orb-ass thinking, “Oh I see why it’s called ‘mooning’…” This movie didn’t do a thing for me.
It’s not a total wash, though. Lemme stress again that this couple works beautifully together, very natural & unforced. The movie is set up well, too — a series of erotic spankings, of various positions & implements:
1. shackled to a chair & whipped with a crop
2. crouched on seat of chair for bare-handed spanking
3. all fours on a coffee table with bare hand & leather straps
4. standing, bent over, & smacked with cane…
5. bonus butt-plug action at the end (including butt plug spanking)!
I like how each segment can stand alone as its own little movie. First, a new camera angle, and then some warm-up smacks followed by a close-up where he s-l-o-w-l-y peels down her g-string and his spanking grows more & more urgent, her cries more & more excited, until finally it sounds like she’ll explode. Then, another camera angle, starter smacks, g-string removal… Very handy — if you’re curious about the night-vision thing, you can watch a dynamic scene from start to finish in a couple minutes.
And it IS an interesting effect, infrared. Legs with sinewy shadows, eerie glints off shiny shoes, flashes of eyes behind creepy ski mask/hood. I like how the movie has no dialog, just the sound of stinging smacks, of whips whizzing thru the air, and of Black Cherry’s Mmms and ahhhs and ohhhhhs. Such a shame, though, that all this novelty adds up to a rather tedious movie. Again, I think the secret to Infrared Spanking is to watch it incrementally.
But even then, it’s not for everyone. A fine movie, technically, but the infrared gimmick adds nothing, and even detracts — how sad, a spanking movie with no red cheeks! While I stand up and applaud ZZX Production’s daring & creativity, I have to suggest that this experiment in night vision spanking does not come together well as a movie.
For me. Maybe if I had “midnight peeping” fantasies or a thing for extraterrestrial lighting, I’d have been more turned on. It was still an interesting ride!
