2 cents to add to the fight "I have a right to my opinion" is one of the stupidest defence anyone can muster. Technically, yes, you do, and I’m 100% for free speech, but “I have a right to my opinion” is a great shield to hide incredibly ignorant, rude and downright judgemental opinions.
“Tolerance” is not something I tolerate. A stupid, ill-conceived opinion without any basis of experience, reality or rational thought is not a valid opinion and shall not be tolerated.
Everyone and anyone has the right to an opinion, everyone has the right to be an asshole, but no one has the right for their assholity and stupidity to be tolerated.
The answer is simple: if you do not like bondage, move on, look at cocker spaniels (oops, did I just say “cock?”) running through daisy fields. If you have not delved into the psyche of BDSM, you have zero right to comment or blurt out your idiotic idealistic ideas here. You are allowed to say “Sorry, I don’t like it”, but no one is allowed to preach about “degradation” or “perversion” unless THEY HAVE BEEN THERE. One cannot write a comment/review on a restaurant you have not eaten at, you cannot write a travel guide to a country you have not been to, and you most certainly cannot make shallow, immature comments about bondage and BDSM if you have not actively played.
Thus: to the “pervert” and “degrading” commentators: your argument is “mu” (look it up). But if you are too lazy to look it up – here it is another way: your opinion has the right to exist, but that’s ALL the right it has. Your opinion is irrelevant, invalid, immature, and based on a false premise. Go comment on something you know something about.
Or put even simpler: if you don’t like it: move along. Nothing to see here.
No, lets get back to why we are here: a picture comment:
Good lighting (not great, but better than average) – the shadow on the foot is distracting, a softer light source may have worked better, but I just have a fetish for soft light. Good ropework (again, better than average, but nothing I find exceptional). Colour handling & post processing: nice and clean, white balance is good, skin tones are well handled (which is difficult for some Canons), Concept/pose: that I like, its an unusual one, and I agree with the commentator who said that they like the idea that she is allowed to keep her modesty. Too much bondage is concentrated on the sexual aspect, and that is only but one aspect of what BDSM is about – the fact that the panties “de-sexualised” this image, adds to its appeal, its bondage for the sake of it, as opposed for the fuck of it, and I like that. The curve of her back is great, I would have liked to see more of her hands (rotate the camera a few degrees counter-clockwise) but that’s just me with my hand-fetish, but overall: 10/10 for the concept and pose. Her expression is the one thing that is off-putting, its too ambiguous… if I look at it one way, she looks deeply subbed and happy and lost – as one should be (not that the idiot commentators would know anything about this) – but if I look at it again, she looks distressed and can’t wait for the shutter to be clicked so that she can be let out. I don’t know what her mood is, and that is what I’d mark this image down on. Final thoughts: let me put it this way: as a DD, and as a BONDAGE DD, I’ve seen a hundred pics better than this. But I’ve seen thousands (if not 100s of thousands) of worse pics. I also think this particular deviant has much better work than this photo in her portfolio. Overall it’s a well-deserved DD. Its not the Best DD I’ve ever seen, but by far not the worst.
