Fifty Shades of Gray Brings More Images of Women in Bondage to Mainstream Media


"Hey bitches, get naked and assume the position or be adjudged weak and useless! So sayeth the Internet!" Image source: Hogtied.com.

Fifty Shades of Gray is still roiling around the media, totally overwhelming all other bondage-related content to judge from what my flying monkeys bring in, but this week I noticed a subtle change: more actual images of women in bondage associated with stories.

I mentioned the naked woman in the cage in my story about the Swedish bondage bunker. But there are other stories featuring images of women in bondage. For example, on TV there was a talk show where a female participant was spanked while blindfolded and holding a ball gag in her hands, during a discussion of the Fifty Shades of Gray phenomenon.

A discussion of the sexiest music on the 50 Shades of Gray playlist conducted by a radio station was highlighted on their website with a picture of woman in a leather bridal corset and lace with her hands cuffed behind her back.

All of this stuff is weak sauce by Internet bondage porn standards, of course. But compared to NO femsub bondage imagery, which characterizes almost all of the stories I have seen about Fifty Shades of Gray, it is a definite improvement.
