The Main-Streaming of Deviancy




Ever since the singer Madonna released her pornographic book “Sex” back in 1992, I have witnessed the very methodical and deliberate normalization of BDSM within the main-stream media. Back around the same time Madonna went public with her fetishes, I began performing in San Francisco-based bondage films. At the time, even the gay market was not completely accepting, and much of this material had to be purchased through mail order. Now, sadomasochism is a mainstay, not only in gay pornography, but in straight porn as well. Hence, the recent trend in the popular media to take its cue from the porn world: the biggest selling book of the previous year was the disgusting and poorly-written “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Kiddie-pop has even gotten in on the act with the songs “S&M” by Rihanna and the music video of Hilary Duff's “Reach Out,” both of which explicitly delve into sadomasochist themes. Most recently, Anne Hathaway showed up at her movie premier in a dominatrix inspired get-up, then proceeded to flash the world.
Whats my point? I believe that over the past 20 years, the US populace has come to accept bondage as a viable life-style and sexual alternative. As I have already detailed in this blog, the next sick deviance on the horizon, is child porn or the age of consent. Heterosexual porn has been working on this for years, with the introduction of very young “ barley legal” actresses, who are then dressed-up to look even younger. The rise of HIV cases among our youth, is further evidence, that the brain-washing and mind-blasting effects of pre-teen sex pop-culture is proving extremely effective. Case in point: the above Marc Jacobs perfume advertisement (above), which shamelessly mimics the worst of the illegal child porn photographs.

  1. Anne Hathaway and Dakota Fanning are grown women and as such, they are allowed to have sexuality. Madonna was and continues to be a pillar for young women, such as myself. These women do not deserve to be scrutinised for expressing themselves sexually as men have for hundreds of years. To say Dakota Fanning's photo resembles child porn is an outlandish remark and comes from and extremely biased place.
    Blogs like this make me realise that my religion will always have men like you in it; men that will never accept women as equals.

    2. That Marc Jacobs advertisement always bothered me, it does feel like pedophilia.

    3. "Madonna was and continues to be a pillar for young women, such as myself."

      I take it you are aware that she has posed for photos where she has her face in some guy's butt crack and is topless, leaning over a dog? She clearly is suggesting certain things in these images from her "SEX" book which she chose to do, and supposedly was never on drugs when she decided to do this. Do you find this kind of stuff empowering for anybody?

  2. Erin, you are so wrong and sound immature based on your reply. The picture of Dakoka does portray the wrong image. This has nothing to do with accepting woman as equals. Just because men have done this for 'hundreds of years" does not make it right either. And oh my, like Madonna is a role model? Just look at her disgusting videos and the way she portrays herself. Who in their right mind would want their daughter to look up to her as a role model? Or what kind of women looks up to Madonna as a role Model? That is one of the many things that is wrong today in the music industry. The women are not what I would want my daughter to model after.

    1. Dear Anonymous and Joseph,

      I'm curious as to what your basis is for deciding something is normal or not normal? Why is this YOUR decision to make?

  5. I'm not old enough to remember when dirty laundry was kept in the back, instead of proudly displayed out front for all the world to see. But smut creates jobs, so there it is...
