Thinking Kink : The Collision of BDSM, Feminism and Popular Culture. by Scott, Catherine.;

Who's Vanilla, Who's Edgy and Why It Matters: The Mainstreaming of Kink -- 4. Billionaires, Bullies and Lost Boys: The Male Dominant -- 5. Safe Words: BDSM and the Concept of Consent -- 6.

Race and BDSM -- Afterword -- Chapter Notes -- Bibliography -- Index.When the mildly kink-themed trilogy 50 Shades of Grey became popular reading in 2012, the media speculated that feminism was in reverse, as the public went mad over bondage and discipline, domination and submission and sadomasochism (BDSM). The novels provoked academic debate about BDSM and the issues it raises for feminists. Is the female dominant truly powerful or is she just another objectified body? Does lesbian BDSM avoid the problematic nature of heterosexual kink, or is it actually more subject to the "male gaze" of feminist theory? And what is it about kink that has creators of pop culture--from Anne Rice to the producers of Scrubs--using it to attract audiences? Examining the tropes of kink in books, TV shows, film and the music industry, this work addresses these and other questions that depictions of BDSM raise for the feminist audience. The author interweaves her own research and experiences in the BDSM scene with the subculture's portrayal in the media.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

What Are CyberEthics? (1:17) -- Cyberspace: Academic Dishonesty (2:07) -- Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright (2:23) -- Ethical Issues of Online Gaming and Cyber Bullying (2:39) -- How to Deal With Cyber Bullying (2:15)Most people learn traditional standards of behavior and respect for others by the time they are teenagers-but many don't realize that those rules are just as valid in cyberspace. This program helps students take the high road on the information superhighway and avoid the temptations of the fast lane, pointing the way toward an ethically sound Internet presence and lifestyle. Guidelines for the use of intellectual property are featured, with emphasis on the consequences of illegal downloading, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. Pornography, gaming sites, chat rooms, and online social networks are also discussed, helping viewers steer clear of antisocial and abusive activities, especially cyber-bullying. Comments from experts, as well as questions from peers who are confused about the fine points of cyber legality, serve to clarify central ethical principles.9 to 12.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
