Kate Mulgrew - without a doubt...

"Siobhan Redmond.
I would marry her on the strength of her voice alone. *drool*"
I'd second that!
Otherwise, Sigourney Weaver, Mariella Frostrup or "Bones" off the TV (Zooey Deschanel?).
Love women with deep voices.
Ooh.ooh, just remembered Jamie Lee Curtis - how could I forget!

David Bowie. I don't think it would suit me though.

I would simply like to speak "better " and not have my bedfordshire accent, also I can't pronounce my "th" .

So a classy voice, with the posh english accent.............. its never going to happen and probably wouldn't suite me anyway   :)

Mariella Frostrup....*sigh*

Yep, seconded!

I get what I call 'telephone voice' after a good night out.

It's not to do with smoking cigarettes, just speaking loud enough so that others can hear me for around 6 hours whilst there's very loud music on. Unless I speak into your ear, you're not going to hear a word of what I say unless I really shout it - which for some might be a bit of a surprise!!

It isn't helped at my work Xmas party when I spend at least an hour on stage singing with our work band, still, it's worth it for the 'telephone voice' I get for the following week and a bit! :D

i'm hoping my scarring on my larynx is going to develop into a nice huskiness, rather than the comedy squeek i get now.

I love Lisa I'Ansons' voice.

It's weird because usually I love listening to women with cut glass accents. Dame Judi Dench springs to mind or Sheila Hancock.

Zarah Leander.


Yes! But without vibratto. What about Hildegard Knef? ;)

I love deep, dark, mellow, firm voices. No-nonsense voices. A hidden chuckle, softness, colour and character all wrapped up in clarity and straightforwardness. A dark alto, even as a whisper. Not a blonde voice, and never a fake emotional squeak so often heard at hen nights.

Hmm. I have a slightly husky, Scottish accent. I think I'll stick with it.

it's quite weird, for me, having a voice that has changed significantly. Mine used to be really bell like, and my speaking voice could be heard in my singing voice, if you get what i mean - it was recognisably me to people i had spoken to. Now i can't sing at all (well, dodgy tenor) and my right vocal chord is a bit of a mess. I could have surgery, it been offered, but there is a risk of making it significantly worse than marginally better and i don't fancy them odds, frankly. I'm working on liking my own speaking voice again.

A Greek guy who owned a bar on Samos - he had the most incredible deep, sexy voice I had ever heard. Even him giving directions to the loos sounded sexy!

I just adore deep husky voices.... on men or women.  A beautiful dark sultry voice just stops me in my tracks. 

I have my own version of deep and husky but it only comes out to play on special occasions.  These are usually when Iv been up all night drinking and smoking, Im in the process of losing my voice (which can last for months) or Im in bed ;)
You may be wondering what a map of the trade winds of the North Atlantic is doing on page 134 of a book entitled Is Sex Necessary? In our opinion a map of the trade winds is equally useful in understanding women as a cross section of the female anatomy -James Thurber
