Domination got a thumbs-down in this report on Relish new ad campaign.  Personally I liked it.

I'm going to have to agree with the article writer.  How in the world is this acceptable?  It's pretty much sexual assualt in that first photo where a human being, a person, is being felt up without their consent by a person in power whom they're not allowed to attack back for a myriad of reasons.  I understand that most people would claim it as fantasy or that it is consentual since they're models, but it's still not appropriate in my opinion.

What is a hot fantasy for one is exploitation to another.

Most ad campaigns have words that go with them, gotta wonder why those words didn't follow the pictures.  Could it be that the complete ad would be more pallatable?

I have always loved how BDSM has inspired fashion. Spring of 09 was killer with all of it's bondage references.

Here are some of my fav outfits-

And then of course on the show Make me a Supermodel they had an entire fetish/equestiarian runway show which was kind of hot.

Just hop over to the 2:50 point.

One of the odd dichotomies about BDSM is that, while the community strongly emphasizes consensuality, a lot of the fantasy involves very non-consensual situations.  How often have you read a story where a woman is taken into slavery, resists at first but eventually comes to love it, or the man who is forced into servitude and humiliation by a vengeful woman using blackmail or other threats?  Such stories can be very hot, as long as they are fiction.  Having fantasies about being handcuffed and raped by a handsome, dominant police officer in no way justifies real-world cops behaving in such a manner. 

I do have some conflict between the part of me that thinks ads like the one linked are wholly inappropriate, and the part of me that wishes that I was the woman on the left in the first picture....

The fantasies are great.

The question I think is what is the responsibility of the advertisers when they show ads to a wide range of the public, often without their consent, it just is on the side of a building or pops up during your soap opera for example.

If someone buys one of my books, and often my stories are of this fantasy type (institutional or historical slavery), they have consented by buying. But when it is part of mass media and entertainment is such a level of consent possible? Desirable? Practical?

For me these adverts are 'bad taste'. Should not be encouraged, definitely not made illegal either, maybe regulated to only be seen in appropriate media ...
