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.

It's just like the rest of his life. In this way at least the sex seems to fit with his character.
