Kinky Pop Culture

I'm always so fascinated to see BDSM references and examples in current media and pop culture. I'm sure being in the scene has made more aware of it than I would be otherwise. Every now and again I catch glimpses of things in the news, on television, movies or the music industry so I thought I'd do another post about this over here at Kinky Ever After.

Word of warning: some of the links below may lead to scenes that some may find objectionable. View at your own risk.

Kink is no stranger the world of advertising even decades ago. I wouldn't say these print ads were made specifically with kink in mind but there is certainly a correlation. In the last few years many of these vintage ads have made the rounds on the web accompanied by articles about how sexist they were and how things have changed since then. They obviously don't run in the same circles as I do.




In recent years it's been pretty prevalent even showing up on popular tv shows such as CSI (remember the fur pile and adult baby episodes? Not to mention Lady Heather), Supernatural, Desperate Housewives, True Blood and you can also still find it in advertising, although women have taken on a more powerful presence.

We're often treated to music stars wearing Dominatrix outfits or producing videos with strong BDSM themes. Rhianna's videos come to mind and I won't even bring up the atrocious video a certain blonde pop star released not so long ago. P!nk's Please Don't Leave Me is one of my favorites though. How could you not love P!nk in that nurse costume?

It crops up in movies blatantly like in The Secretary, which by the way I LOVE. I've even seen it in action flicks like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, in suspense movies like 8MM and The Killer Inside Me, and horror movies like Strangeland.

Anything you've noticed in current or past media that flips your kink switch? I'd like to hear about it.

  1. Except for the old 50s ads the modern stuff is all women dominatrices (is that the plural?). They're included as a joke or a gag; much like how having men cross dress in a movie was a guarantee for cheap laughs.

  2. In Iron Man the Pepper character was very submissive. A lot of Anime has power exchange themes in it, sometimes for a cheap laugh, but often playing with or against notions of female submissiveness that I suspect are a current in Japanese culture. In any case, thank you for sharing your examples, Fallon. Fun topic!

  3. I think that James Bond, the Daniel Craig version of him, has been very "dom" the last few movies. Maybe it's just me, but he flipped my kink switch over and over in Casino Royale...even when he was the one tied to the chair getting beaten. It's something about the way he broods and the way he looks at women...and the way he's just so damn tough and capable.
