It seems like such a natural thing to do that I'm surprised we don't see more of it in spanking pictures, videos, and cartoons-- the Spankee trying to block the Spanker's hand to prevent or modify her seat-searing!
Of course, this is usually a token resistance; you can tell when the ladies are less than serious about fending off the swats--
even during a semi-serious spanking for this stowaway from her sailor!
The girls will often giggle in movie publicity photos meant to show how fun and frisky this film might be!
That's young Joan Crawford giggling at James Murray's efforts for 1928's "Rose Marie!" Maybe he would have had a different reaction if he'd used a wire hanger?
Here's maestro Al Siegel instructing protegee Connie Russell in 1940 during the rehearsals for "Unholy Partners!"
And to promote the fluffy Bing Crosby picture "College Humor" in 1933, Jack Oakie put Mary Kornman over his lap! She looks a little more concerned about it.
Naturally, if the gal is playing a role, she'll want to evoke the audience's suspension of disbelief and make them wonder about her hiney!
-- and Erica!
Speaking of Rich Windsor, I do believe some of those earlier depictions of domestic discipline and birthday frivolity were derived from his blog! Thanks, Rich!
Here's Lily Anna trying unsuccessfully to stop David Pierson's handprints reddening her lovely fanny!
These are talented women, because like I said, making these protests convincing is a hard sell!
Spankees in the audience will likely quote Hamlet's mom Queen Gertrude, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
"No, No, a thousand times, No!"
One of the first "D&D" WolfieToons had a redhead worried about her delicate skin with her swimsuit bottom down--
And in a later 'toon, the young lady was not worried enough, until her fella took a hand and Uncle Albert suffered some kind of minor apoplexy:
Take care, now, and remember, in all important matters, C.Y.A.!!
