Aunty is both shocked and delighted!
The idea of putting up the nominees worked a treat and got great response, so I am pleased and as I said above delighted.
Why am I shocked? I got not only one winner, but two. I've never had this happen before. I have wondered how I'd handle it. I considered having a run off, but really both ladies are deserving recipients and I quite like both of them, so you're getting two for the price of one this month. If it becomes a trend I may have to hold vote off's but I think with the format of having spankers and spankees or both genders the more the merrier really.
Now the winners are, and I will do this alphabetically, actress Dana Delany:
There's Kate's lovely smile. I wonder if she's thinking about spanking William's bum?
I think mention of Dana made many readers go back to an earlier role she had in the largely BDSM themed film: Exit to Eden. It was very loosely based on Anne Rice's book of the same name. I haven't read the book or seen the film, but I am aware of it. Dana also claimed to have worked with a professional dominatrix and actually spanked a client as research for the film.
All 'dommed' up for her role in Exit to Eden.
Since Exit to Eden Dana has worked solidly and I'm sure images like this from an industry event:
I'm sure she'd be more than capable of turning a disobedient bottom the same shade of red as that gorgeous dress.
And a publicity shot from the TV show Desperate Housewives, in which she starred for a time.
Helped to cement her dominant image and clinch her nomination. Although her pose in the shot is more cheesecake than anything. Marcia Cross as Bree Van De Camp looks very much the maternal spanker in that one, as does Felicity Huffman as the much put upon Lynette Scavo.
I can see Dana Delany featuring very highly when I ask for people to consider their SotY.
Now we come to the lovely, elegant, recent mother HRH Princess Kate.
Even when sporting the rather prominent bump that became Prince George she looked elegant and composed and regal, even thought she wasn't born royal.
Here she is with the real love of her life, little Prince George, what a proud and happy Mum she is. By the way it's very hard to find any shot of her and George alone, William at least, is nearly always there. You can even see him at her shoulder in this one.
For some reason a number of the people who nominated Kate wanted to see her get a family member over her lap. Sophie mentioned both sister Pippa (that was written about by Debbie Downunder elsewhere here) and her mother Carol, as did a few other commenters. So here's a shot with Kate and Carol. You can see where Kate got her looks from. although not her height.
Both ladies tallied 4 votes.
Heniel nominated Dana and the ever faithful NJSpank suggested Kate.
Join me next month when I am asking for nominations or suggestions for a male spanker. Surely there is some prominent alpha male out there that you have just thought could give some naughty lady a jolly good hiding.
