Thanks for Copper for the following Memorial
The world of male-spanking suffered a loss recently, with the passing of Cliff Meador, the owner of Spanking Central video productions. Starting in 1993 in Palm Springs, Cliff (or “Cliffboy” as he was known at the time) began a mail-order company that specialized in designing and building spanking equipment that he called “The House of Correction.” Included in his product line were a selection of paddles, leather straps and a variety of bondage devices. After relocating to Fresno California, in 2003 he opened a video production company where he planned to feature both male and female spanking scenarios. When Spanking Central first opened, he offered a catalog of ten videos that were available on DVD, or by membership for $12 a month. He set a goal of offering one new video every week,abandoning the idea of using female models and specializing in exclusively male content.
In addition to directing the videos, Cliff appeared in almost all of them as the sole top. Artistically shot and edited, in an interview, he once described his productions as “a dramatization of a spanking” and “theatrics,” rather than real discipline. In 2008, he stopped offering DVD’s for sale, making his films available only by membership. In addition to the featured videos, Cliff also maintained a regular video blog, updating the members on his current activities, his models, and occasional rants about video piracy or other political issues In February of 2019, Cliff announced that he was ceasing production of new films, although he would allow the website to stay open as long as it paid for itself. By that time, he had produced an impressive catalog of 745 spanking videos. Cliff unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, January 8th at the age of 65. The website, www.spankingcentral.com is still available, although it is unknown just how long it will remain active.
