It’s always hella’ good chatting with seasoned spankers in the scene, to get their perspective on the art of discipline.
So we thought it might be nifty to ask a few questions of the wonderfully stern Lance del Toro, who has been featured as a bottom-busting Top for Firm Hand Spanking and industry pioneer Shadow Lane.
He also has such a fab name–I’m thinking of changing my name to, say, something cool like, umm, Dave de la Spanka. . .
BTW, do check out Shadow Lane’s latest explicit, awe-inspiring and mouth-watering spanking video, cleverly entitled Bed, Bad and Beyond, which features adult industry superstars Amber Rayne and also Dia Zerva.
Anyway, Lance was involved with the legendary Samantha Woodley, but alas no longer, and Lance politely declined to answer questions on Samantha, to respect her privacy–so this Q&A will thusly be heaps shorter than as originally planned.
Thank you Lance for taking the time to chat with The Cherry Red Report.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give a shout out to all my fellow spanking enthusiasts! I hope to see and meet some of them at the 2010 Labor Day Spanking party in Vegas. I have missed the last couple of parties that Shadow Lane has put on, due to personal reasons but I am looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.
So how’s life these days?
Life is good…Always good;-) Even when it’s not, it’s still pretty good.

Amen to that. So do you consider yourself a born spanko, so to speak, or did the interest for you develop later in life?
Since I can remember–maybe as early as 3? My Mom’s best friend had a daughter that was 1 year older than me and we always “played house.” We would play mommy/daddy as well as doctor/patient role plays that were quite elaborate.
I know you have worked as a Top shooting vids for Firm Hand, and for ShadowLane, I believe. Any others we should know about?
So far only those two companies, both top-notch class acts.
Great question with a funny answer. My first video was for Shadow Lane and it was with Chloe Elise, called Sting Operation 1. They had mailed me the script a couple of weeks a head of time and I just could not memorize it to save my life. So I just figured I would ad-lib it.
I had the concept down. Just one problem: I had not talked to Chloe Elise about my little plan and she had memorized it…all of it…and my lines too. Chloe Elise by the way is as smart as she is beautiful and so fun to work with. I was so nervous I could barely speak when we started…I couldn’t even remember my own name!

So how did you first get started in the industry??
I met the wonderful Author and Director, Eve Howard at a Shadow Lane spanking party in Vegas and she asked me if I would be interested in doing videos. At first I was hesitant but soon realized it might be a lot of fun so I tried it! I met so many nice, fun and kind people along the way.
Do you plan to film more spanking scenes in the future?
I might if asked again, but if not, I have had my fun. I have horrible stage fright and with all the cameras and lights and people I have mini panic attacks ever time I hear the words “Roll Camera.”
What do you think are the most important attributes to possess in order to be a good spanker/Top/Dom ?
That’s a hard question because women are individuals with different needs, wants and desires. I think the best Tops are the ones that listen to who ever they are playing with. Sometimes you have to be able to read between the lines as well.
How many spanking implements/toys do you own?
More than I can count 😉
Do you have a fav?
My hand by far, but I love wood paddles, straps, belts, canes etc.
When you are not toasting buns, what kind of work do you do for a living?
I own a landscape construction company that specializes in designing and installing landscaping both commercial and residential. It started out as a hobby 20 years ago. I would find myself calling in sick to my regular job in the health care field if I didn’t finish a project over the weekend. Eventually I decided I liked being creative more than I liked being on a time clock so I went out on my own and haven’t regretted it since.
To change gears a bit, what are some of your vanilla, non-kinky hobbies?
Hmmm, I like going to the lake with friends and family, skiing, boating. I enjoy conversations about current events and have recently really enjoyed learning world and US history. I have a close friend who has a way of explaining things to me so that I get it and can connect the dots. I have also been learning a lot about my spirituality and the universe and just find it fascinating and Intriguing. I have also have taken up yoga but still find it quite painful! I also enjoy cooking and watching movies.
