The Wonderful World of Shadowlane


For the last 20 years or so, Shadow Lane has been producing classy, erotic spanking products with absolute class, wit, charm and a connisseur’s true understanding of the varieties of our spanking fetish.

Essentially, products that make you feel good about being into spanking; in fact, they even have an instructional video called “Spanking 101.”

Run by lifelong spanking enthusiasts Eve Howard and Tony Elka, Shadow Lane has produced over 120 videos and sell top-of-the-line spanking toys, host the most popular spanking parties and events, offer a vast online “Member’s Clubhouse” with personal ads, artwork, stories, and much more.

(Eve Howard is the excellent author behind the steamy, squirmy Shadow Lane series of novels, which you can get online at Shadow Lane, as well as The Cherry Red Report’s spanking book shop, powered by Amazon.)
Before the dawn of the Internet, they were one of the true pioneers of spanking erotica, and I remember sprinting to my mailbox and unveiling their glossy magazines and beautifully designed catalogs, discreetly clad in plain, manila envelopes. The memory of that still resonates!

In fact, it was seeing by chance a Shadow Lane ad in literary journal of erotica about 15 years ago that indicated to me that I was not the only one on Earth who was a “spanking enthusiast.”

It was an unforgettable moment.

They continue to release top-notch DVD’s sure to get your heart racing and tummy quivering, including this latest, squirmingly explicit release called “Auto Erotic Spanking,” involving an old-fashioned mechanic and a fresh, sassy customer.

Check out the details at their gracefully-designed website, including free preview clips.

They also have a variety of ‘sampler’-style DVD’s such as the wonderfully-titled “Spankorma” with clips from scores of their movies, so you get a taste of each.

Shadow Lane also works with key players in the spanking community, such as Samantha Woodley from Firm Hand Spanking, Clare Fonda of Spanked Sweeties, Pixie of PunishedBrats fame, and Chelsea Pfeiffer from GoodSpanking.

Not to sound like a marketing geek, but they have the finest promotional materials, graphic design and sharply-written blurbs for spanking videos that I recall seeing.

The amazing, original illustration by Fritz Ptasynsk above was featured many eons ago on the cover of Shadow Lane’s newsletter, Stand Corrected, when it was still an actual newsletter. Fritz appeared in numerous spanking videos as Sunny Daze. Shadow Lane’s “Member’s Clubhouse” has loads more luscious illustrations and hot photography.

p.s. Editor’s Addendum:

    Count me in with that — I first became aware that the fascination with spanking wasn’t all in my head, when I found Shadow Lane’s ad in Cosmopolitan magazine, eleven years ago. They changed my life. Nice tribute to them, Dave. — Erica Scott

    Hi Erica,

    Great story! Thanks for posting a comment! I had heard they had (not sure currently?) advertised in Cosmo. It’s amazing to think our kink being promoted in major mainstream magazines.

    The ad that I saw back in the day was in a very small, highbrow literary journal of erotica called “Libido.”

    Though unfortunately I didn’t save all my Shadow Lane magazines and catalogs. *sigh*

    Hey Dave,
    Wonderful post! We bought our tickets to the upcoming party this last weekend, and plan to “wink” to Shadow Lanes today. Will be hard to add to your excellent post though.

    🙂
