Who is Miss Martindale?

In one of the recent postings the subscriptions manager made some reference to the 'real Miss Martindale' and then quoted some website.
What is the significance of this? I have never heard of Miss Martindale before, and why does that woman have any relevance to this forum?

Hope this information is helpful.


Encyclopedia > Marianne Martindale

Marianne Martindale (Catherine Tyrell, Mari de Colwyn) is an English writer and columnist.[1] As Miss Martindale, she is the public face of Aristasia, the "Feminine Empire", an all-female subculture in which men do not exist, and the two sexes are "blonde" and "brunette".[2] Miss Martindale received national attention in the British press in the 1990s, with articles written about her in The Guardian, The Independent, and The Observer.[

Miss Martindale is known for her practice and advocacy of corporal punishment. This led to criticism from some Aristasians, who felt that in the public eye she was associating the movement too much with its minor disciplinary aspect. Some non-Aristasians have characterized Aristasia as an "S/M fantasy group" as a result of this. However, Miss Martindale's recorded statements and interviews made clear her dislike of S/M, and her belief in discipline as spiritual and purifying.

Not to forget two television shows.
She operates her adult school for ladies only from a private house Woodford Essex.

These shows were produced some time ago. Do you know if there is anything more recent on Miss Martindale? I have seen some of her video clips, the discipline is very realistic.

Heidi, heaven forbid that I should assist a fun poster, but I'm a nice guy at heart, especially where young ladies are concerned, happy.gif and I'm very relieved that you've learnt how to spell your name now, so here goes. If you haven't already seen them there are various Miss Martindale clips on YouTube.

Please remember though that like the books on assorted female tawsings published by the Wildfire Club (which Miss Martindale co-founded) referenced in the 'Is tawsing still legal?' thread you're in the realms of fantasy. There's nothing wrong with fantasy between consenting adults, provided all concerned recognise it for what it is, which sadly some posters here, including you, ('the discipline is very realistic') don't!

If any one thinks that Miss Martingdales adult punishment sessions as depicted on the two films are realistic then they have much to learn.
They are mild in the extreme and for sexual pleasure. School CP was given to maximum effect.
There was a film on the box tonight " This England " At the start 2 boys have a fight at school, they are sent to the Head. While one waits outside ,the punishment of the other, in the study are heard. Maximum swishes, whimpering, crying and sobbing by the 15 year old hard nut as he recieves a realistic sounding caning! He leaves rubbing his rear end and the next lad is called in. The scene then cuts.

The most realistic scene from those clips is the one in which Miss Martindale bends the maid over a table, lifts the back of her uniform and gives her 6 of the best with a rather fierce looking leather paddle. It looked quite real to me. There is another one in what passes for a classroom in which Miss Martindale tawses a tall girl on the hands. It was so so.
Another one where Miss Martindale spanks that same tall girl otk in the bedroom is not very clear. Do you know of any others apart from those I have mentioned?

Are the women in the Miss Martindale clips actors or is it for real? Some of the scenes look realistic, but others have obviously been staged for the clip.
The scene in which the maid is given 6 of the best with the strap looked quite realistic. The other scenes were too unclear to make any conclusion about.
I found the documentaries quite interesting. But what is the purpose of it all?

Oh come on now, realistic? They are fee paying lesbians attending an adult school for sexual role playing fun.
The hand strapping was so mild as to be pitiful compared to the real thing. As for the spanking, love pats at their mildest.
Get a grip my dears.

I agree with you on the last two, but the strapping of the maid did definitely look realistic. I think the tall girl was was okay but the other two "girls" were very average. The spanking clip was not very clear so I cannot really comment about it, but I think it was that same tall girl. She is also interviewed in one of the clips.

Do these women really participate to fulfill their own emotional needs or are they just paid? I know these clips were made some time ago. I have not seen or heard much about Miss Martindale since. I am not currently living in the UK. Is she still quite popular there or have most people forgotten about her?

From what I have gathered she runs a fee based adult school for like minded individuals. I would like to think that it is an expenses based arrangement. Her contact details ( females only ) can be found by a bit of web trawling or her yahoo group. She also sells 50s style female attire and CP impliments.

I agree with Celine. The tall girl was acceptable, but those other two were a disgrace. What was Miss Martindale thinking? I am not sure whether the maid that got a well deserved 6 of the best from Miss Martindale was actually the tall girl. Can anybody enlighten me on this? Also why did Miss M allow the maid to keep her knickers up during the thrashing. I thought that was very lame.

The thrashing of the maid? I do not recall? I remember the namby pamby strapping and the love pat spanking. What thrashing? If you want to see a thrashing look at the Lupis site or even Hornblower.
If it don't involve blood flowing its a bit like a Korma curry.

The thrashing of the maid was in the clip "A weekend at Miss Martindale". It was the only realistic portrayal of cp in the whole clip. The punishments in the so called classroom were a joke.

I have to agree with you Amelia. The strapping of the maid by Miss M did look real since she did give her 6 strokes with what appeared to be a leather paddle. However the maid was wearing knickers and might have had an extra pair under those. I think the maid was that tall girl who was in the interview. I cannot say if she was genuine or an actress.

I am not so sure that the maid is that tall girl in the other clips. Its hard to say because the video quality was poor. I doubt if they were professional actors. It looked like a real cheapskate production.

I am pretty sure that the maid is the same tall girl that was tawsed by Miss Martindale in the classroom. If she is a professional actor then I would not like to be her agent unless the only dependents her agent has is an anorexic canary. Even then it would be problematic if the commissions earned from her alone would pay for bird seed.

Miss Martindale seems to have nine lives. http://www.bookrags.com/wiki/Miss_Martindale. Since her column ended in Chap Magazine in 2005 she has chosen to go into seclusion due to the Bridgehead Doctrine.

She and her models must be getting on in their age as we all have since 1997 when they were an item in the Bristish media. The Feminine Publishing Company is promoting her works at prices new that use to cost a fortune used from Amazon (a most appropriate word). The Feminine Publishing Company is easily Google by the quoted words. She and her models were acting out their British vice fantasies for the camera in a moderate and very lady like fashion if I must say so. The youtube inteviews with the girls seeking structure are must amusing. They really made for an interesting story.

Woman/Girl corporal punishment is far rarer than the clipmoon schooldays video or Man/Girl that also can easily Google by the quoted words and was IMHO referenced unwisely by link by Paul on November 30, 2008 just before the Network 54 site he was so involved in sensibly was shuttered and perhaps our esteem Forum unwisely gave him an opportunity to promote his off color reenactment of school corporal punishment. There is no nudity but leads one to believe if you purchase the video you would see as much. I won't give you the link to that previously cited site and let you do the dirty work and search for yourself so as not to promote soft porn on this esteem Forum.

Thanks for your reply. Yes I suppose some of those girls in the Miss Martindale clips would be getting on a bit. The tall one most probably still looks o.k but as for the other two, give me a break. By the way do you know any details about that tall girl?

Yes it seems that Miss Martindale is keeping a very low profile at the moment. In fact in recent years there have been more reported sightings of Elvis than Miss Martindale.

However I found some parts of her documentary quite interesting. I agree with HRH the tall girl was hot but the others were very average.

Dear HRW: Technically these videos are off topic but I know that while some from this esteem Forum may not be inclined to forgive me you should take into account that I did not start this thread. There will never be another Miss Martindale like there will never be another Dame Edna. I find Patricia, the blonde girl, quite attractive in her own British sort of way. They all seem to be having a good old time and with 250,000 viewers youtubing it a lot of people must be enjoyng watching them too with or without salacious reasons? Dr Dominum do not watch these videos. Others, please don't feel perverted. I enjoyed watching them with my wife and we found them amusing. I'm sure these videos are old hat to some.

Thanks for that reply. I did not know that the name of the tall girl is Patricia. Yes you are right, she is hot. The other two are a disgrace.

It is probably not a good idea to mention Dame Edna Everage in your messages as it tends to lower the tone of this forum, even though there are rumors that she is popular with certain doubtful forms of life that are known to frequent this site.

Re: Who is Miss Martindale?

I can provide a bit of background on the Miss Martindale documentary, which was screened on Channel 4 (late at night) in 1997, at the time when Miss Martindale's adult school for ladies was receiving quite a bit of media attention. The programme itself attracted excellent viewing figures, I think even possibly a record for something showing at that time of the evening, roughly 11.30pm if my memory serves me correctly; the viewing figures were certainly in the millions. Miss Martindale's rather loopy philosophy--where the modern commercial world was designated "The Pit," and the schoolroom, with its atmosphere of caring discipline, was meant to create the mood of Britain in the 1950s--received quite a lot of adverse attention in up-market newspapers such as the Guardian, but because Miss Martindale herself was articulate and engaging, even if a bit crazy, she wasn't seen simply as a run-of-the-mill pornographer.

So far as the documentary goes, one of the less attractive girls in the schoolroom, the one who is hit with a ruler on the legs, was not an actress as such but a genuine devotee of CP and fantasy, someone who used to appear with Miss Martindale on chat shows--such as the one Toyah Willcox used to host about sexual matters--and who was also very articulate about her sexual interests and preferences. The documentary itself originally featured a hard caning--presumably of the tall blonde girl, the only one who isn't chastised at all in the documentary as it appeared on TV (and now on YouTube)--but apparently the Channel 4 executives took fright and at the last moment this was edited out. So what we're left with is, in truth, a fairly bland programme, though still an interesting one. I keep hoping that the "director's cut" of the programme might surface one day, but no luck so far.

So far as Miss Martindale herself was concerned, she's obviously just a small footnote in the UK's cultural history. However, it was a brave and unusual thing for her to do, back in pre-Blair 1997, to admit openly to an interest in CP, and I think the publicity she garnered was on the whole beneficial, helping to make the whole subject seem more mainstream. She herself was an Oxford graduate; I had the pleasure of speaking to her on the phone once, many years ago, when I was ordering an item from the Wildfire catalogue. There can't have been a great deal of money in it for her, but she was obviously someone who enjoyed what she was doing.

Hi American Way,

I am most disappointed at the content of your above post. sad.gif Never mind Melbourne, where we are all entitled to form our own opinion. The problem is those annotations on Miss Martindale's videos (current versions) that you link. How can I possibly cope with the realisation that vast numbers of young ladies are no longer being subjected to corporal punishment in Anastasia! happy.gifwink.gifhappy.gif
