2008 was a full on year. I was travelling a lot and did some spanking parties, as well as making more of my own films and building me reputation as an actress and model. I was training at Theatre School and appearing in mainstream short films too, as well as modelling and spanking work. I worked with the icon Sam Johnson for ‘Sam’s Diaries’ who I was friends with through our work and was feeling like I belonged.
My ‘The Trouble With Emma’ website was attracting over 125,000 unique visitors a year and I was getting myself more established as a model. I made more films in my own ‘The Trouble with Emma’ series and travelled a lot. I had a boyfriend in the scene for a year who worked in Paris, France, so I saw him at weekends and stayed over there a few times. It was my first taste of living a Domestic Discipline lifestyle when we were together, but he treated me like a princess. I was too immature for him and impatient and wanted more of it and to be together full time, and we spilt up just before Xmas after I left.
I joined the ‘Bums on the Run’ team over 14 spanking models to do ‘Race for Life’ 5K run in London to raise money for Cancer Research. We all advertised, contacted our friends and acquaintances and managed to be the 3rd highest group of fundraisers in the UK, as everyone in the scene came out to support us. I remember being in awe of some of the models who were well known, but we all mucked in and I made good friends that I would later work with in films.
I did my first professional spanking party in April this year. It was with Jean Bradley of Yorkshire Spanking, who was very well known and had a famous website. There were 6 girls and 20 men and at the end they had to vote for the ‘naughtiest girl’. To my amazement I won, so I got spanked by Headmistress Jean in front of everyone who clapped at the end. I met Donna Davenport there who later became a friend I worked with. I was on such a high and got some nice testimonials from that and made lots of friends.
My film series was underway and becoming popular online. I started to do more modelling too, and I was getting an early reputation as a newcomer spanking model.
I joined the scene in October 2005 after I was approached by a published photographer, Roy Tersely, who had worked with the top spanking magazines and other sites. I was very confident and reckless but lucky, and as I had been modelling in the Blue Rooms in London and was signed to a fashion agency I had lots of practice on how to walk and pose so spanking pictures had to follow. I was still with my mentor Dr Williams who I had been with since 2000, and I had regular discipline before I even knew there was a big ‘scene’.
Roy Tersely took wonderful pictures, introduced me to the right people and helped me with my spanking films. My first film was a fly on the wall early video diary that I called ‘A Visit to the School Governors’. It was not scripted but shot in the moment at a party I was invited to, and later became the main event in the film I produced. It was very successful and I was the new girl on the block. I’m eternally grateful to Mr Tersely and his remains a ‘Sir’ to me I will always want to work with and see again.
