Men, huh? Can't live with 'em. Can't strip 'em and spank 'em. Well actually, you CAN, in this little corner of cyberspace. Around here, fully grown males are at constant risk of humiliating bare bottomed correction - hence the 'humblings' of the title.

Miss Scarlett, in the Library, with the Candlestick

Or actually, the mid-forties lady, in the bedroom, with the hairbrush.

All this polling malarkey over the last couple of weeks has been a good way for me to make lots of posts without actually doing any work - but now the voting is over, and I have to make good and come up with my resulting Frankenstein's Monster of a picture. I will try to stitch the parts together without the joins being too obvious!

It's going to take a while and I have other drawings nearer completion, so it probably won't be the next thing I post. But I'll let you know when it's ready.

Meanwhile it's probably worth summing up the results, because I think they're fascinating. There's been a lot of vying for position in some of the categories, while others have had clear leaders from the start.

In terms of implements, the brush - which I hope you all took to mean 'hairbrush' rather than, say, 'toothbrush' - proved hugely popular. I'm not suprised by this since I think it's the ultimate F/M implement - inherently feminine, equally good at driving out tangles and bad behaviour, and capable of delivering a wicked sting. Next up, but a long way behind, was the good old paddle. Nice to see that everything got at least one vote, and apologies again that I forgot to include the hand - I'm sure that would have had a lot of support.

For dress, you generally like your extremes. Although a fair few people wanted the lady to take at least something off, most of you thought she should be fully clothed. Less ambiguity when it comes to her victim - a huge majority want him bare naked, but with enough votes for underwear that I'll bear that in mind for a future pic. I didn't word this poll too well, but I'm going to assume that those clamouring for nudity won't mind a bit of clothing so long as it's pulled well down - especially since there was some specific mention of that in the comments.

Moving onto ages, it looked for a while as though you wanted the lady to be a little older - but this has gradually flattened out. For the men, it's striking what an even spread of votes we have. There's actually a dead heat between the two most popular age ranges, so I'll just have to choose one. I was pleased to see a few votes for sixties and seventies, since I'm sure many visitors are in those age groups - and 'silver spankos' are not well represented in artwork.

Thank you again for all the votes, and keep an eye out for the finished product!

Mix Your Own - Setting The Scene

Happy Friday, everyone!

We've had lots of votes for customising my forthcoming picture. Thank you so much for those - it's been fun watching the trends take shape.

The final piece of the puzzle (you may be relieved to hear!) is a setting for the spanking. This is the hardest element to construct a poll for - do we base it on location? Period? Circumstances? I've decided to go for the first option as the simplest, but even so I'm sure I've missed out many possibilities - sorry about that.

Anyway, please place your votes, and feel free to drop me a line if you want to get more specific. Oh, I'll be away over the weekend - apologies if you have to wait a couple of days for me to publish and reply to comments.

Mix Your Own - Clothing, Or Lack Thereof

I'm half afraid my blog is going to collapse under the weight of active polls, but we're almost at the home straight.

Please vote for how you'd like both the disciplinarian and the disciplined to be (un)dressed in my drawing.

Got particular outfits in mind? Then don't be afraid to leave a comment. This one is all about you, so I'm open to suggestions!

Mix Your Own - Not Too Old To Go Over My Knee!

Ok, it's time to vote for which age ranges you'd like to see represented in my 'Mix Your Own' scenario. Please vote for both spanker and spankee.

Now I know that relative age will be important for some of you, but honestly I don't think I can factor that in without things getting completely out of hand :).

Mix Your Own

Anyone up for a little experiment?

My curiosity's been aroused by a post on 'Her Paddle', in which the blogmaster mentioned that most spanking art isn't quite to his taste.

This has got me wondering what are the optimal 'ingredients' of a spanking picture that would best suit the collective preferences of UH's visitors. So I'm going to run a series of polls for the next week or two to allow you to vote for your favourite implement, age groups (18+!) of spanker and spankee, state of undress, and setting. Then, based on the results, I'll draw something that may please everybody, or nobody :). Either way, I hope it will be interesting!

Let's start with implements. I've tried to make the list pretty comprehensive: if your favourite isn't shown, I apologise. Someone's already pointed out that I've omitted one of the greatest 'implements' ever - the hand. Unfortunately I can't now edit the poll. However if you don't see your weapon of choice here, feel free to leave a comment instead of voting, and I'll factor it in.

The poll's over there on the right.

Come On Back, Y'all

Just a brief post to celebrate the first 10,000 visits to this blog since I started counting last month. Thank you to everybody who's stopped by, and especially those of you who've taken the time to say hello.

I'll do my very best to keep things interesting around here, and you keep coming back.

Deal? :)
