Dom & Sub is a body of illustrative work in digital media that attempts to humanize practitioners of BDSM and offer a representation of kinky sex that not only refutes negative stereotypes but informs the audience that sadomasochistic play is done best between happy, healthy, and consenting adults. I portrayed the couple in the work not only engaging in S&M play but also building a “scene” together and nurturing one another after the play has concluded; these are moments often left unconsidered or completely ignored in visual representations of S&M. I believe it’s important to see how kinky scenes are crafted with care, commitment to safety and enthusiastic consent in order to limit those times when sadomasochistic play is used to abuse or dehumanize other human beings. It is my hope that my audience will learn from the illustrations that sadomasochistic play is not always dark or scary, and that fellow ‘kinksters’ can enjoy tender representations of S&M that do not ridicule or pathologize them. I’ve designed the work to engage sadomasochistic imagery, material and theory with an ethical conscience.
YES YES YES

TW: rape, assault, abuse, harassment
A busstop near my apt has this ad. The text says “When you know all your neighbors, the bad guys stand out” with drawings of four dogs and one bald human wearing a raccoon mask. It’s implied that the masked human is a bad guy, as he stands out from the others.
I can’t think of anything more misleading. Not only does this encourage [children] to judge based on differences, but it also implies that the well-known neighbors who all blend together are safe. Assault is more likely to be done by someone the target knows and trusts. For example, I was kept alone in a basement without food or water on a near-daily basis for 10 years by a Neighborhood Watch household; that family has won community service awards, was given their own program to counsel others in their parish, and the mother played Mary in a Christmas play. And on top of that, the person who raped me for 12 years is an extremely close relative.
If abusers and rapists were this identifiable, their actions wouldn’t be a problem.
