44. You just aren't looking in the right places
I've seen plenty of both.

Anyway, that's not the point. It exists because there are people into BDSM (I'm one of them). It's not like these images are in the public sphere, on television and billboards, or something - if that were the case I'd join you in being upset about it. But it's sexual fantasy, found in the place where you find sex fantasies, i.e. pornography.

It's easy for people to get judgmental about other people's sex lives when it's out of their sphere of experience or interest, whether it's homosexual, bdsm, diaper fetishes or whatnot. I personally think that it's far healthier to be accepting and not perpetuate shame. Even, or especially, when it's something that's not personally appealing. As long as it's between consenting adults. Yes, even for David Vitter.

There are REAL issues that hold women back in the workplace and in society. Bondage porn isn't one of them.
