Comments on The Headmaster's Office
Froth chamber music opens the first scene, along with title cards:
The New Bedford Academy for Ladies, circa 1892 It's after midnight, and the young ladies should be in bed. But...
A flame illuminates the darkness, and then eventually five young ladies come into view (barely; they could've lit this scene a little better). They've gathered secretly in their bedclothes to pass around a bottle of wine. As the giggling girls settle down to tell scary stories, one of the girls announces she needs to use the "water closet," and scampers off -- instead, to the principal's office.
Tipped off, the principal storms down to their basement hideaway. "What is going on here?" he bellows. His large frame looms over the girls, who quickly give up their stash and agree to meet him in the Headmaster's office first thing in the morning.
The next morning in the Headmaster's office...
The girls stand sullen & penitent before the Headmaster, the Principal, and the classmate who turned them in last night. Muted beauties -- far from unattractive-- yet kinda plain all the same. Young, too. Some gangly with the ghost of adolescence, and some still soft with baby fat.
The Headmaster turns to the Principal and asks, "I trust the girls are ready for their punishment for last night's indiscretion?"
"Yes they are," he answers, adding that he'd like the tattletale girl to count the strokes.
"Very well," says the Headmaster, who is short & fit & virtually crackling with energy. With his period duds & little nub of a ponytail, he calls to mind a nubile Thomas Jefferson. He paces before the girls, scolds them for their intolerable behavior, tells them to get ready to be severely punished, and finally instructs them to remove all their clothing.
The girls slowly, purposefully begin all the untying & unbuttoning necessary to remove their old fashioned getups. Tension builds, as the camera cuts back & forth between the Headmaster (who is picking out punishment implements) and the students as they help each other outta their dresses. Finally, the girls are naked except for adorable white thigh-highs. Fifty strokes for each, then!
The Headmaster calls the first girl forward, a pretty pig-tailed brunette. She steps up to a wooden platform, bends forward at a 90-degree angle (breasts drooping towards floor), and is strapped in. The camera lingers as leather wraps around her calves, arms, and finally a wide band secures her midsection. "Breathe in," the Headmaster says, tightening it as far as it'll go.
He whizzes a cane around, testing out his swing. "Are you ready?" he asks, and she answers affirmatively, in a soft, barely audible voice...
Holy shit! He hits hard and F-A-S-T. I wanna say he strikes once per second, but he may be a little faster than that... Not quite "one Mississippi" -- more like, "one Mississi" (if that). I don't think I've ever seen a caning this fast! The poor girl bucks and shrieks reflexively, and then her punishment is over almost as quickly as it started. She's unstrapped & pushed up against the wall, her rosy butt on display.
Her three classmates look stunned & sober at the sight they've just witnessed. The Headmaster selects his next victim, fastens her in. The principle interrupts him, shows him a wide wooden paddle riddled with holes. Maybe he'd like to try it?
Why not? The Headmaster's swing is slower this time, stronger. The paddle lands especially hard on the girl's right butt cheek, which shows signs of massive bruising by the fifth stroke. She cries, wails, jerks her body, tries to catch her breath. By the 11th stroke, the paddle snaps in two and the Headmaster returns to his cane.
Now, her black & blue ass cheeks are riddled with horizontal crimson slashes. The final ten strokes reduce this girl to nonsensical screaming, and then she collapses in whimpers while the Headmaster and principal compare her damaged ass to that of the first girl. They even have a magnifying glass, like their students are lab rats!
Girl Number Three is breathing heavily before her punishment even begins. Just watching the other two has evidently freaked her out, and she's crying by the 8th stroke. By the 15th, she's howling hysterically. "What do you think?" the Headmaster taunts the last girl, standing there waiting.
The punishment continues...
Stroke 28: "No! No! No!"
Stroke 30: (screaming)
Stroke 32: (howling)
Stroke 37: (hyperventilating)
Stroke 42: (top-of-the-lungs screaming)
Finally, she's done. Her ass looks like a mass of scarlet railroad tracks. The Headmaster seems disgusted by her lack of control. He grabs her hair & scolds her, pushes her roughly towards the wall to stand with her classmates, then turns his attention to the last girl waiting.
Strapping her in, he notes that she's shaking already (no doubt!). As he selects his cane, he addresses the girl who's been keeping count this whole time. Is she learning anything, particularly anything about tattling? He's keeping an eye on her... Meanwhile, she needs to watch this last punishment.
This girl's taller & thinner than the others, with tiny tits and long blonde hair that falls across her anguished face. She screams almost from the first stroke, and it's not long before she's yowling.
The principal interrupts again, "Headmaster, slow down a little, so she has time to comprehend," and the blows fall harder now that he's taking his time to wind up and aim. Her ass is mottled with welts and broken capillaries. Pinks and reds of all shades burn on her cheeks.
By 20 strokes, she's whooping aloud with every crack. You can actually SEE her shaking -- the flesh of her butt quivers between blows! The Headmaster threatens that if she doesn't calm down, he's going to lose count, and finally, somehow, her ordeal is over. She staggers from her restraints and takes her place at the wall.
The Headmaster prompts them to thank him, and to apologize to the principal and tattletale girl. They are excused. Stripped & snuffling, the girls file outta the room as the scene ends.
Later that evening...
The girls are running around in their bedclothes again -- this time, they're so much giddy with wine as they are mad with revenge upon their loose-lipped classmate. They hold her down, expose her naked ass, then take turns spanking her enthusiastically as she squirms beneath them. Without implements, they hit has hard as they can with their bare hands, and yell at her for betraying them.
"Obviously you were wrong!" one of the girls growls, "You know what else is wrong? You like your pretty hair...?" and she brings a pair of scissors to the base of the girl's ponytail. Ha! Paybacks are a bitch!
The movie is followed by some really cool behind-the-scenes footage that adds some insight into how much thought & planning went into this production. I particularly appreciated how the girls are prepared for the intensity of the caning they're about to receive. Ya gotta hand it to them for their courage & professionalism.
And their acting! Everyone in this movie is wonderfully natural on camera (which is a nice surprise in adult cinema). The story hooked me, and delivered serious spanking thrills. The title's few sound/lighting issues were a trifling annoyance, at most, and did not interfere with my overall enjoyment of the action. Someone give the crew at Passive Arts a gold star for their report card!
