* In ''Film/{{Nymphomaniac}}'', BDSM will make a woman find her lost sexuality… but also obsess over her master so that she neglects her child and leaves her husband.
* The Cenobites from the ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}'' films. This was made during the height of the '80's disapproval of bondage, and writer/director Clive Barker is very interested in the transgressive.

They're literal extradimensional monsters dedicated to exploring the boundary between pleasure and pain on anyone stupid enough to summon them.

Note that is rapidly becoming a DiscreditedTrope -- with the rising mainstream acceptance of alternative sexualities using this trope straight will often raise the ire of many real life practitioners.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has the Godhand, which are clearly inspired by Clive Barker's Cenobites, and several of which have a pretty marked sexual sadist streak -- Slan, the {{HornyDevil|s}} of the four and who at one point in the manga has Guts restrained as she draws pain from his Brand and basically molests the guy; and [[spoiler:Femto, who has Casca restrained by demonic tentacles as he's raping her during the Eclipse]].

* Played for laughs in ''Film/{{Eurotrip}}'' when Cooper visits a legal brothel while in Amsterdam. It turns out to be a place that specializes in BDSM, and Cooper is forced into kinky sex acts because he can't pronounce the outrageously long safety word.

* Team Chain in ''Anime/HandShakers''. Break is portrayed as very cruel and sadistic to his partner, keeping her in bondage and torturing her in attempt to get all the power he can from her.

* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' plays this trope straight with its portrayal of BDSM as it apparently relates to patriarchy: The devil's publicity man/bouncer and the comic's go-to symbol for rape culture, porn culture, and objectifying women is a large male demon wearing gimp-esque bondage gear. As the comic tends to be rather blunt with its allegories, the author's attitude toward BDSM is implied to be less than charitable.

* ComicBook/HarleyQuinn seems to be a fan of this in the New 52, both as the dominant and the submissive. To give an obvious example, one issue starts with her waking up in her rather messy apartment with last night's date behind her, duct-taped to the wall; two pages later, she sees a patient dressed in a gimp outfit (her treatment consists of "integral psychotherapy" through "introspection and dissection", a fancy way of saying she hogties him). Unfortunately, this leads to a horrific nightmare where she's in bed with Mason, who turns into "Mistuh Jay" mid-embrace.

* In ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'', Christian's obsession with BDSM is tied mostly to the fact that he is a damaged, traumatized individual with aggression issues. This stems from {{mommy issues}} and his much older girlfriend raping him and making him her sub when he was a teenager. He's naturally "cured" of it at the end.

* [[Wrestling/TheWorldsGreatestTagTeam Shelton Benjamin's]] Smackdown valet, Shaniqua, was revealed to be a {{dominatrix}} but this really didn't come into play until she switched from his valet to manager of the Basham Bros, who were totally submissive to her and Shaniqua started attacking their opponents with "The Magic Stick". Wrestling/{{Tazz}} and Ernest Miller were about their only supporters, not even Shelton approved.

* ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' more or less averts this as a whole due to [[ConvenientlyCommonKink the nature of]] [[PlanetOfHats the entire planet]]; however, an example still exists with Mistress Butterfly, who takes the kink and rams it UpToEleven. She's not called the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast sadist from hell]] for nothing.
** Funnily enough, the only people seen to have "vanilla" sex, [[spoiler: Evita and Michael Kappel]], are the ''villains''.
