Mad Men Gets Kinkier: What Don Draper’s New Fetish Says About Ours

New York Magazine

The season-four premiere of Mad Men didn't just introduce SCDP’s cute new office and Peggy's adorable new haircut, it set up what could be this fetishistic show's kinkiest sexual relationship yet: Don Draper, the “son of a whore,” is regularly sleeping with a prostitute — and asking her to slap him, too. As far as mainstream TV dramas go, this is fairly unprecedented stuff: Masochism is typically treated as joke (Desperate Housewives) or as prelude to grisly murder (CSI). On Mad Men, however, Don’s shocking but brief, slap-happy sexual interlude is not just stratospherically, nakedly Oedipal, it makes sense — both for him, and as a kind of mirror of fans' obsession with the show.

(Another session, about the importance of keeping one’s “real life” and “kink life” separate, explains why KinkForAll participants’ full names won’t be revealed here.)

Kinky Sex: When Did BDSM Become So Wildly Popular?

on Wednesday, 09 June 2010. Hits 872


AlterNet

DSM-IV, which was published in 1992, defined kinky behavior as a “paraphilia,” a fancy word for any path to sexual arousal that’s not standard foreplay. The language of DSM-IV “is unclear and sometimes contradictory about whether a paraphilia is a disorder,” says Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), an advocacy group for the BDSM, swing and polyamory communities. Although the language hasn’t been finalized, it’s looking as if DSM-V, which will be published in 2013, will make it clear that a person can be kinky without having a disorder.

Instead, it associates smoking with slavery, sadomasochism, domination, pedophilia, and bland 1970s design. I'm kidding about the last part.
