Paradox was a British spanking video producer that released over twenty films between 1998 and 2002. Its titles were distributed by Spanking for Pleasure, a firm that also distributed and incorporated videos by Tallion. Paradox often cast actors featured in photo-fantasies published in Janus magazine. It explicitly marketed its products as ‘British Spanking’, incorporating the national flag into the design of its box covers and DVDs.

Paradox films depict the spanking, tawsing and caning of young women (schoolgirls, nurses, maids, etc.), primarily by men. About one-third of their videos feature female disciplinarians. None of these titles contain overt sexual content. The tone of the stories ranges from The Correctional Therapist and Offender Correction (with stern institutional punishments), to humor and genre parody such as the Finishing School Discipline series.

Christian Fennington (husband of actress Sophie Fennington) played a number of comically caricatured spankers, such as Basil Sterling, the smug pipe-smoking headmaster. ‘I’m not one for the old clichés,’ he declares, ‘but they do say crime doesn’t pay. Offenders get punished. It’s all part of life’s rich tapestry, isn’t it, Watson?’(Finishing School Discipline 2).

English-speaking French actresses make a rare appearance in Finishing School Discipline 4 and French Lessons, both filmed in the elaborate Georgian house often hired by Janus as a set.
