Blake Has News

There’s large and exciting news from the spanking model, spanking provider, spanking porn producer, activist, and long-time Spanking-Blog-friend that we have known for many years as Pandora Blake. Today they announced their coming out as non-binary and genderqueer:

So where does that leave me? An androgynous twink in a womanly body; a femme boi who finds butch boring; a queer peacock struggling with self-expression. An outgoing introvert who has limited spoons for emotional labour, but loves social contact, intimacy and connection. A trans feminist who wants to disrupt the oppressive gender categories so all of us can be more free.

I’m genderqueer. I don’t fit into the male/female binary.


They are now, at least some of the time, going by Blake:

This isn’t a total break from the past. I’m not stopping being Pandora. But I am introducing a new way of interacting with me: Blake.

I am Pandora. I am also Blake. I am Pandora / Blake.

I’m looking forward to being Blake more often. When I’m performing in queer porn, shooting videos for myself or with friends, when I’m speaking at events or running workshops, I’m eager to show you my authentic self. I answer to both names, and I’d invite you to use whichever seems to fit how I’m presenting.

It’s the kind of news that’s startling at first, but upon a few moments’ reflection, makes perfect sense in light of the diversity of their recent work. I’m sure it must be terrifying, but what an adventure!

    I have lurked on this blog for about 10 years and never commented, but here goes my first one! As a non binary trans person its great to see the growing representation and acceptance within the community.
    Congratulations to Blake on their bravery!

    Lex, thanks for commenting! I think you are being very polite in what you are not saying. There’s a lot of unpleasant history in our community with people who think that public expressions of spanking kink should be limited to (very old fashioned binary/cis/het notions of) men spanking women (and everybody else, they don’t wanna see). I’ve always been in the uncomfortable position of publishing pretty much from that same limited palette (because it’s what I myself want to see) while being convinced that it’s no reason to be assholes about the fact that the spanking community is much broader.

    I’m never going to turn Spanking Blog into a ceaseless glittery rainbow of genderqueer spanking porn. But when somebody we know and love, whose work we respect, whose porn we like, whose activism is vital, whose presence and belonging and support and joy in our community is unquestionable — when they say “Hey, you know what? Let me tell you something I’ve come to realize about who I am…” it would be churlish not be be supportive. Or anyway that’s how I feel about it!
