...thoughts on recent news.

As I left here to go home yesterday I heard for the first time about the three young women that had been kept prisoner for ten years in Cleveland.

Tragic.  Reprehensible.   That's what I think.

Out of the 592 deviations presently in my gallery I know they almost all depict women in peril, bondage, some state of capture and/or slavery.  This is all mere fantasy, and I still maintain that all my girls, at least the ones that want to, gain freedom at some point. (Why do you think the delicious Keiko has to get recaptured so often?)  For as much of a pervert as I am, I still have a tenderness toward women, and though I may fantasize about capture, keeping, and whatever else, I don't condone in any form or fashion such activity in Real Life.  Bondage and capture games, even slavery of sorts, between consenting adults is fine.  However, to steal someone's life is a crime worthy of the severest punishment, and yes...I support the death penalty.  ;)  Yeah, these freaks had, in effect, killed these girls, stolen their very existence, and in my opinion deserve nothing less than the ultimate punitive measures.  That's how strongly I feel about this.

So, I know you all are probably confused now, but, hey, that's who I am.  So I'll keep making my little digital crayon images of women being captured, tied, gagged, enjoyed, but I want it to be crystal clear that I don't agree with such activity in RL, except between parties that are in full agreement, consenting, and with safeties in place should something become too much.

Also, if I ever feel that my 'art', such as it is, is encouraging someone to do such things, taking women against their will, I'll erase my gallery in a heartbeat and disappear forever.

Well said Ed.
I've been very reluctant to post Bondage images because I was so horrified by what transpired and also because I'm an avid ID channel viewer and saw this even more horrific story about two serial killers Charles Ng and Leonard Lake [link] that kidnapped and tortured women (and worse) for their own sick twisted pleasure. Being that I'm a woman who has had family members raped and myself having been a victim of date rape and abuse, it makes it extra hard to depict fantasy bondage scenes.

But creating BDSM scenes is a hobby I enjoy and long to get back to because like you, I wouldn't want actual kidnap, rape, and bondage to happen to anyone in real life. These men are MONSTERS who deserve nothing but death or a life behind bars where maybe some burly guy named Bubba can show 'em what it feels like to be raped for the rest of their miserable lives. Castro should never ever again see the light of day.

Safe, sane, consensual BDSM is what I support and should not ever be confused with unsafe, non-consensual, insane cruelty to others. Great post, and thank you.

Thank you my good friend. I've been on a little hiatus here myself recently. Though I'm sure my art has little to do with encouraging what some monsters are doing out there I still get an uneasy feeling every time of hear of such atrocities. I'm also sorry that you have been on the bitter end of such things as well. :( Damn...I hate when my friends have been through things.

Keep doing what you do: Your art does not encourage anyone to do anything bad. Just that thought alone is absurd. Bad people do bad things all on their own merit and lack of morals, judgment, and inability to feel compassion for others. Simply put: Crazy people do crazy things all on their own.
Thanks Ed for your compassion but I'm perfectly fine and bad experiences sometimes end up as just bad memories for your friends...nothing more. I have family that loves me and that's what matters. :tighthug:

I couldn't find better words than yours. I COMPLETELY agree with what you said in that journal... This sick bastard deserves death after having ruined the lives of three families. I support the death penalty also, thanks for having informed us of that tragedy. It just reinforces my thoughts about punishments these criminals deserve...

You're totally right about that.
Through out all my years as a master- Close to 40 now- I've never done anything with a partner who wasn't into it and surely not kidnapped or thought of kidnapping young girls to keep as slaves

Yeah, when I heard about that thing, those girls being held for ten years, I was just sick. Consent is one thing, but what those guys did...I would have dared them to resist. "Give me an excuse, freak." ;)

If these assholes had been fans of yours (and mine) and been able to separate fantasy from reality then maybe they would not have felt the need to do what they did. We need MORE depictions of fantasy, not less, to be displayed in public arenas and then perhaps that will provide an outlet that will prevent sick individuals from going to the extremes that we have seen. To say that deviantArtists contribute in some way to these egregious behaviors is like saying bullets kill people without being shot out of a gun or that weed leads to heroin. In my opinion the only way to prevent this type of criminal behavior is to make this country more sexually open and sell less X-Box games that depict violence as entertainment! There will always be sick individuals that need medical treatment but we are seeing far to many of these types of crimes for that to be the case. Anyway, keep doing what you do and I will do the same!

Well spoken.

It's a pity some people fail to see that there's a difference between bondage and BDSM enthusiasts who live out there fantasies in a safe, sane consentual environment or by the means of art or literature, and criminals like this, who stop at nothing to fulfill their desire for power over someone, destroying lives. Cases like this certainly don't help the reputation of any BDSM-related fetish in the eyes of someone who doesn't understand the matter as a whole and this vital difference in particular.

But at least those fetishes seem to be understood and accepted more these day - but that might just be my experience with the open-minded people I surround myself with. Though there still are those who fear people like us might become...monsters like that. I suppose all we can do is prove them wrong.

If you want to distance yourself and your work from the idea of real life kidnappings and slavery you can put a disclaimer in the description. Though I don't think anyone would get dangerous ideas from looking at your gallery - or mine, or anyone's for that matter. Unless someone is capable and willing to commit a crime already, looking at pictures, movies or playing games won't make that person a threat to other people. It's a bit like the whole video games cause violence debate. No mentally healthy gamer will become a school shooter. Not unless they are already violent.

There are those that I can share with, mostly here on dA, and those that I can never let see inside of me. As for a disclaimer, I have something of the sort on my profile, but something with each deviation might not be a bad idea.

Well said Ed!

That is the precise difference between those of us with extreme kinks or interests and criminals bent upon only meeting their selfish and destructive needs. I myself struggled for a long time with what I wanted, abduction, force (sometimes to the extremes) rape and bondage, and asphyxiation. However I know that if those things where to happen to me in an unsafe environment it would go over that line we all dance upon between fear and reliable consent.

What has happened to these women goes beyond abuse as you say so succinctly their lives where stolen away from them, their rights, their choices and all the while totally without their consent.

This man and his accomplices are just as guilty as a murderer they have destroyed three life times of opportunity, they have visited upon the community fear and nightmare. Those women will never fully heal from their ordeal and no matter what the punishment they will never make amends.

Ultimately BDSM Capture and Force in the community is not about really going out there and doing these illegal acts most people whom are involved in the community would never dream of truly putting these fantasies into real life practice, too steal someones life away for good and to destroy their psyche.

There is a very clear and defined line between fantasy and reality for those whom are healthy human beings. Those that cross that line are either not healthy or not human beings and should be treated thusly.

Absolutely agree with you. What we do is just our fantasy. No harm done to anyone (well, anyone IRL). But what they did destroy their victim's life. That's just sick.

Btw, back again, holy s*** 10 years??

I don't think the makers of the TV series Hannibal condone serial killers either. Its a fine line, but as you say what goes on between consenting adults is pretty much their own business, and those in relatively good mental health are able to differentiate between fantasy and reality.
The men involved in this crime harboured no respect for the lives and well being of others, and deserve the severest punishment, but you, I and others who enjoy this type of fantasy should not in any way feel that we condone or support such activity...I watch Hannibal, I like the show...I don't want to munch on people.
Anyway...little speech done...I am glad one woman took the opportunity and was brave enough to escape and bring this to an end. Thought and prayers with them as they try to put their lives back together.

I like your comparison, that just because I make the 'art' doesn't mean I think people should just go out and kidnap young women. I, too, pray they can attain some semblance of a normal life after all this.

I wouldn't worry to much bud. Your pieces usualy come with a small story to show it just an idea and I've never once seen you try to encourage people to go out kidnapping folk. Most people know that just because someone creates a piece of work that could be seen as controversial, does not mean they would do such a thing in real life. If they didn't then Disney would have been shut down years ago for the amount of stories they have had where people have been kidnapped, murdered, forced to live a life of servitude, raccism, hate crimes and more!
