The English Mansion

Their festive Double-Update Bonus Month is heading for the final furlong.

It continues until January 25th, so look at their Seasonal Home-page before it thaws.

Here are some earlier Mansion specials.

Torture Garden . . .

  have some events already planned for this year, starting late February.

The Firm's

Night of the Cane narrow strip

  caning competition videos are still available.


  of Wolverhampton have folded the towel and put it into a drawer until March.

Zara du Rose

  has rescheduled Caberet of Excess into March.

Miss Hastings

  of Carlton College & The Punishment Club, has gone the on-line/telephone route.

Industrial Dance

The Xmas, the Old New Year's and New New Year's dances are back in the attic for another year.

By now we should have heard rumblings of The Firms Burns Night. So far: radio silence. Meanwhile, here are some Burns-themed videos.

Maar Floops in not one, but two kilts recorded just over a year ago:

Cyber Doll Morrigan with a night shoot - nice B&W and muted colours:

Firefly's entry to CIDC2019 - she was a finalist:

Wendy Ailan and Cyanide Vice, from 2017:

Tease and Denial

Mistress Aranea & Miss Flora, of No Way Out, have conspired to create another Special. A chance to be seduced and tormented by two Swiss Dommes.

Weird News of Last Month

Unsurprisingly the BBC website cookery section has a page for Rum Butter.

Very surprisingly they make it with Brandy instead of Rum.

One shudders to think what they'd suggest for Eddie and Ritchie's Vodka Margarine.

Goings & Comings

Some musings on 2019 and 2020. That last one is on a bit of a short ration.


'Toyah at Home' - broadcast on Saturday mornings at 11am. (And Sunday Lunchtimes, at lunchtime on Sunday. The other week she said “I'm not gay - I'm married”. Priceless.)

Toyah briefly resumed touring early in 2020, before everything closed down.

Many dates, especially the Electric Ladies dates (which co-star Hazel O'Connor), are now re-scheduled from mid April this year. Here's a snippet of her Rubber Revalations.

Maybe you saw her in Quatermass on Talking Pictures TV?
