pain4fem is an Austrian-Slovakian spanking company that produces full-length spanking videos released in DVD format as well as scores of short video clips for a family of websites. Their film studio is located in Bratislava, forty miles east of Vienna. The company is owned and operated by writer-director Peter Schober and his wife, Helen. Diseno Media HPS s.r.o. in Slovakia handles the production and distribution of the films and also manages their websites.
 Style and content
Pain4fem's videos are female-submissive and feature scenes of M/F and/or F/F corporal punishment. This includes a range of domestic, school, and prison stories, with an emphasis on judicial punishments. They use a variety of implements (paddle, strap, carpet beater, etc.), but most videos feature severe canings and floggings. The company is also known for its long series of back whipping videos.
Besides feature-length films, they also produce a wide variety of short pay-per-view videos (3-5 minutes long) for their subscriber websites such as The Spanking Machine, Elite Spanking, The Whipping Machine, and Falaka Online (foot-caning bastinado videos). One-hour compilations of these short web videos have also been released on DVD.
Most of their videos are shot in a large multi-room basement studio. Depending on the story, filming is sometimes done at outdoor locations (such as Boot Camp and Drug Patrol) in and around Vienna. Peter Schober is the writer, director, editor, cameraman, and star of nearly every production. Helen Schober is a camera operator and also performs in several films, usually as an authority figure. They also make films from story ideas submitted by fans such as Strict Prison 2 and The Spy (starring Niki Flynn).
 Actors, genres and settings
The stories are told in a mixture of German and Slovak with added English subtitles. Similar to Lupus Pictures, pain4fem uses mostly inexperienced Czech models drawn from local talent agencies instead of professional spanking actresses. Two notable exceptions are Amelia Jane Rutherford (using the alias Lucy) in Hard Business and Niki Flynn, who wrote about working with both companies in her book, Dances with Werewolves.
Other similarities between pain4fem and Lupus include ambitious storytelling, the use of historical settings, supernatural elements, and tales with an anti-fascist sentiment. Painful Exorcism and The Thieves are set in the Middle Ages, The Spy illustrates the brutality of Nazi Germany, and The Pioneers explores Communist oppression in the 1980s.
