This is the User Page for Jameslovebirch. The alias was chosen as an homage to James Lovebirch (pseudonym used by one or more authors of vintage S&M novels).
Artist, writer, editor, and occasional director-writer-producer-performer-film editor of corporal punishment fetish films.
More specifically, a Sunday painter with a Fine Arts degree; a writer of original semi-scholarly articles published online without credit or remuneration (what's up with that?); sometime book and magazine editor for publishers who invariably go out of business (through no fault of mine); and maker of spanking videos.
Currently residing at an undisclosed location along the coast of New England.

CP film reviews
At the Consumer's Spanking Video News & Reviews site, have written reviews for these videos (as guest reviewer "JBI"):
Lupus Pictures: Red Reformatory: Old Friends, My Unfair Lady, The Girl Next Door, The Noise (3rd review), Tales from the Sin District: The Cathouse, The Hidden Camera 2: The Client.
Mood Pictures: Dark Room: Volume 2
Raven Hill Studios: Spankin' Down The Highway, parts 3 & 4 (aka Louisiana Lickin's At Mardi Gras). This review is notable for exposing an elaborate hoax. This is promoted as a reality video with random party girls picked up on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Closer examination reveals that it was all staged using stock Mardi Gras footage and a professional fetish model. An interesting read; see the review at the website.
Currently writing in-depth essays and reviews on vintage horror, science fiction, and other film genres for various mainstream movie magazines as well as underground fanzines (a.k.a. 'zines).
Artwork and videos
So far have filmed two videos (as Sting-Ray Productions). These are Punished Schoolgirl and Final Exam. Both are M/F (guess who plays M) and feature first-time-on-camera performers.
Have a BFA in painting and occasionally make portrait sketches and CP-related artwork exclusively for this site. My spanking actress portraits include: Kiri Kelly, Kailee Robinson, Niki Flynn, Pandora Blake, Alexis Payne, Tanya Foxx, Sophie Fennington, Belinda Clark, and Gia Regency.
