There are some things that are just hard-wired into my brain as sexiness triggers: words which will make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, or give me that gut-punch of arousal that is almost impossible to describe. One of those things happens in our latest video, and I want to keep playing it over and over.
Donna Draper – a twist on Mad Men's Don Draper – is a ruthlessly strict boss. Played by Pandora Blake, Donna Draper takes no shit whatsoever from her secretary Vix Vixxxen. These two have an amazing dynamic in this caning scene – from Pandora's brusque instructions, “Stop talking right now.” to Vix's sassy and insubordinate retorts – everything about this relationship crackles with hotness.
Pandora's dressed in a tailored suit and tie, every inch the authoritative boss. Vix is dressed in a tight black skirt, hold-up stockings and sheer blouse: the perfect sexy secretary. But her eye-rolling, smart-mouthed counterpoints to Pandora's reprimands show that she's not one to take correction meekly, and I love the way she insists on disagreeing with her boss, even after she's been given six firm strokes of the cane.
There are some sparkling moments of recognition here – the homage to Mad Men in lines like “You're a woman, and you're lucky to have this job,” as well as the question “Are you married?” which almost had me phoning the employment tribunal. I love the way Donna Draper has the attitudes of a 1950s boss, but Vix is a much more souped-up version of Peggy Olsen: she stubbornly maintains her opinion, even when being given a secretarial caning for her attitude.
