Raven Hill Studios
Raven Hill Studios is a U.S. spanking video producer that has been in business for more than 10 years. Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, the company is owned and operated by Tierre Ainese and the avuncular Richard Lewis. Nearly all of their films feature M/F (male-spanks-female) action with either Ainese or Lewis administering the on-camera punishments. They also have a few all-female (F/F) and mixed M/F-F/F titles. In addition, they distribute 38 volumes of the Nettles Corp. Russian Slaves series, renamed "Russian Spankings" (formerly "Tears from Russia"), and have recently added some femdom titles produced by Bad Lad Entertainment.
The company concentrates on traditional corporal punishment themes (no dungeon S&M or elaborate bondage). Their videos, organized by subject at their website fall into the following categories: school themed spanking, reality spankings (beach girls and resolved by corporal punishment series), lawless girls (prison and jail scenarios), religion-inspired spankings, foreign-themed, old-fashioned family values, real life spankings (Spankin' Down The Highway series), Russian spankings, and girls spanking boys.
Reality Spanking Videos
Raven Hill has carved out a niche in fetish-film history by pioneering the reality spanking video concept. Years before the reality TV trend took hold of the media, Ainese and Lewis came up with the Beach Girls Spankings series. Walking the beaches of Florida, they interviewed bikini-clad babes, offering a cash reward (revealed in a later video to be $500) to endure three 5-minute spankings at a rented beach house nearby. After an obligatory over the knee hand-spanking, the girls blindly select the next two spanking implements (hairbrush, paddle, strap, cane, etc.) off a board in mock game-show fashion.
This idea was expanded in the Spankin' Down The Highway series (originally The Great American Spanking Roadshow) with the guys convincing girls to enter their RV camper for a 3-part punishment session as they drove from Florida to Ohio.
The camper was used again in the two-part Louisiana Lickin's at Mardi Gras, supposedly filmed in New Orleans. However, this appears to be a cleverly staged hoax. "Danielle", the first girl they "randomly" meet on the street, is actually well-known bondage-fetish model Christina Carter. All the Mardi Gras scenes are stock footage inserts and the "girls gone wild" that get spanked are only seen against a blank wall, never in a crowd, with generic crowd noises added to the audio track.
Raven Hill's most successful reality series is Resolved by Corporal Punishment. Here they offer to pay the out-of-court settlement for attractive girls facing a small claims court lawsuit in exchange for submitting to three punishments. This comprises a five-minute over the knee hand spanking followed by another five minutes of implement spanking (with a hairbrush, paddle, or strap) and concludes with a 30-stroke caning or switching. There are 24 volumes in this series thus far.
DVDs, videos, and downloads are available at their pay site that offers access to spanking photos, video clips, spanking stories and articles. Membership costs $14.99 per month. 'Platinum Membership' for $24.99 per month is required to watch full-length spanking videos online.
In addition, they have a pay-per-view theatre on this website in which videos can be watched without membership for $9.99 per video.
