  • A Spanking History Lesson from Copper: Studio 7 Part 2 – Mike Pastori

    The artist Copper continues with his exploration of the History of male on male Spanking videos with a second look at Studio 7 and one of its most controversial characters.


    OK, class. I am glad to hear that a number of readers are enjoying our History Lessons. If any of of you remember Studio-7 videos, you will certainly recall Mike Pastori, one of their frequent models. Whether you liked him or hated him, he certainly made a mark on the spanking-video industry (as well as many-a-bottom) so here is a SPECIAL EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENT to share a bit of his personal history.


    STUDIO-7 – Part 2

    At the height of their success in the mid-1990’s, Studio-7 introduced a new actor by the name of MIKE PASTORI (real name Thomas John Mitchell) who created a sensation with his extremely assertive demeanor and severe spanking technique that often resulted with tears and sobbing. His first video for the company was “You Spanked the President’s Son” (SV-41) and he soon became the resident sadist for Studio-7.

    Over the next few years, Mike Pastori would go on to appear in 43 videos for Studio-7, including offerings like “Counselor Training” (SV-65) where he mentors a new employee in how to discipline by first spanking him, and then having him demonstrate what he just learned on a subordinate; “Cry Baby Cry” (SV-66) where a father repeatedly reduces his son to tears; and “The Interview with Peter Stone” (SV-80) featuring a strapping new lad who went on to appear in a half-dozen videos for the studio.

    While still working for Studio-7, Mike Pastori founded his own company, MANic Productions, that allegedly included a working dungeon and offered male slaves for rent. Two of those “slaves” escaped and filed criminal complaints against Pastori that included kidnapping and slavery, claiming that they had not consented to his abuse. On November 27, 1996, Pastori’s dungeon was raided by the San Diego Police Department. Pastori was eventually charged with pimping and pandering, and with so much print and video evidence against him, Pastori plea-bargained the allegations down to “attempted pandering” and wound up serving two years in a California state prison.

    In addition to his incarceration, Pastori was ordered to cease any involvement with the adult entertainment industry, and upon his release, he discovered that all of his computers and files had been confiscated by the court. Having lost all of his records and mailing lists and after a lifetime of being “in charge,” the prison term and loss of his livelihood weighed heavily on him and he died of a heart attack.

    After Mike’s passing, Studio-7 offered a “Final Tribute” for his fans, by discounting his videos for a period of time. I am attaching a copy of that flyer, although you might notice that whoever typed it repeatedly misspelled his name “Pastoria”. Additionally I’m including several of the original catalog pages from his films, including his first video (please note that in the description, “Mike” is referring to a character’s name and not Pastori), as well as the first Peter Stone video, and one of his severe videos, “How to Break a Slave” that Studio-7 wasn’t even sure could be legally released.

  • A Spanking History Lesson from Copper Part 2 – Studio 7

    A Spanking History Lesson from Copper Part 2 – Studio 7

    The popular American Spanking artist Copper has decided to educate a new generation in the history of male spanking videos, and maybe rekindle some warm memories in an older generation. Copper intends to create a series of “History Lessons” that trace the early days of our fetish on video. In this second instalment Copper focuses on one of the original American spanking studios from the 1980’s Studio 7

    Copper has provided a brief written history of the studio, together with a selection of Studio 7’s original adverts.



    Based in San Diego, California, Studio-7 was founded by DON STEELE and CAL JOHNSON (not their real names) in the early 1980’s. Their first video, “Billy” was copyrighted in 1982, making Studio-7 one of the very first film studios to produce male-spanking erotica. Over the years, Studio-7 would produce 112 spanking videos in addition to 11 “Preview Tapes” that featured several short vignettes from their most recent releases. Additionally, toward the end of its run, Studio-7 distributed a number of videos known as their “Premium Amateur” series, releasing home movies sent in by fans. Studio-7 videos were only released on VHS tapes and were originally priced from $34.95 to $69.95.

    Like other studios in that era, they released several of their earliest Super-8 films on video cassette, but with no sound-track (they did add a musical background). In addition to their videos, Studio-7 also offered photo-sets from their films, charging $20 for 18 color prints. By the late 90’s, they offered the photos on a CD-Rom, with 100 pics for $9.95 (custom made from whatever films you requested).

    In 1983, Studio-7 began publishing Woodshed Magazine that featured spanking stories and ads for their own videos in addition to classified ads submitted by customers. Woodshed also included early artwork by Steve Burke and originally sold for $5 per issue. In 1995 Studio-7 discontinued Woodshed Magazine after publishing 55 issues.

    While Studio-7 continued to produce and release videos through the rest of the decade, by 2002 they had stopped shooting any new productions. They continued to sell their catalog of videos on-line and by mail order for several years before finally closing up shop. At the present time, I found four Studio-7 titles (Cat Burglar, Jason, Obey My Rules and Uncle Josh) available for viewing on Porn-Hub. They listed a fifth video (Andy Spanked to Tears) but it is actually from a competitor, Sundaze Studios, and not Studio-7. Occasionally you can find original cassettes or copies of Woodshed Magazine offered from sellers that specialize in vintage erotica.

    I am attaching several samples of their advertising including the cover and several pages of videos from their 1984 catalog. There is also an ad for Woodshed Magazine and a comic book created by contributing artist Steve Burke. Finally, there is a color catalog page for a couple of the last videos produced by Studio-7, as well the order form for their first 100 videos.

    One final note: The color photograph on the cover of the catalog features their model Jock, getting a hairbrush spanking in a bedroom. While Jock appeared in a couple of their films, this particular scene was from a photo shoot and was never available on video tape.

  • Punishment at Cornwall Naval Barracks

     I understand that Punishment at Cornwall Naval Barracks was one of the fist Male spanking videos to come out during the 1980’s but I do not know much more about it than that, including which studio produced it.  Is there a JockSpankl visitor who can supply more information about this movie?


    Thanks for Disney, Anonymous and CP who have left comments confirming that “Punishment at Cornwall Naval Barracks” was made by those great pioneers of early Male Spanking videos Studio 7.

    Thanks also to CP for supplying the following link to the Studio 7 site: http://studio7video.homestead.com/

  • The Definitive Jock

    “Definitive” may be an exaggeration, however, thanks to Helmut for what must be the most complete collection of images from this classic Studio 7 photo-shoot from a quarter of a century, or more, ago. Sadly as far as I know this session was a photo-shoot and was not filmed, so no video is available. However, maybe one day one of the studios might re-create what is certainly an iconic scene (are you listening Sting, Spanking Central, MancSpank and Mans Hand?).

    Studio 7 made a number of spanking videos in the 1980’s including the classic “Abide by my rules”, and I understand their back catalogue is still available, however, I do not have their website address, if someone can send it to me, I will be happy to link to them.
