'''Paradox''' was a [[United Kingdom|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,
typically by men, but by other women in about a third of instances. Many of the spankees are dressed as schoolgirls, nurses, or maids. Overt sexual content is always absent. In other respects, the stories differ in mood to a marked degree. At one end of the range, ''The Correctional Therapist'' and ''Offender Correction'' focus on institutional punishments coldly delivered by stern young women. Three films in the ''Finishing School Discipline'' series , by contrast, are humorous in tone and parody some traditions of the genre.
For Paradox, 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'').
Unusually, English-speaking French actresses take roles in ''Finishing School Discipline 4'' and ''French Lessons'', both filmed in the elaborate Georgian house often hired by ''Janus'' as a set.
