* ComicBook/HarleyQuinn seems to be a fan of this in the New 52, both as the dominant and the submissive. To give one obvious example, one issue starts with her waking up in her rather messy apartment with Mason behind her, duct-taped to the wall; two pages later, it seems whatever they did the previous night gave him a knife wound on his shoulder that he barely cares about.

Unfortunately, this leads to a horrific nightmare where she's in bed with Mason, who turns into "Mistuh Jay" mid-embrace.

* [[ImageBoards 4chan's]] /tg/ board averts this with their homebrew ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' deity, [[http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ardarvia Ardarvia]] the Iron Maiden, whose domains are BDSM and love. She is LawfulGood, and her followers tie themselves up, or even [[ItMakesSenseInContext amputate their own limbs, as a sacrifice for her.]] The religion goes so far as to include the concept of SafeSaneAndConsensual as one of the cornerstones of the faith.

* Used in ''Film/TheCell''; it just so happens that every woman in the 'menagerie' is stuck in what are real life kinks (doll play, pony play, medical play, statue fetish) in the mind of a sociopathic serial killer.

Compare TooKinkyToTorture, where someone is so tough that torture gets them off, and CombatSadomasochist. Contrast SafeSaneAndConsensual, CasualKink and the ObligatoryBondageSong. 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.

Some media dress their villains up in "S&M gear" ([[IThoughtItMeant No, not that]] [[PokemonSunAndMoon S&M]]) in order to make them {{stripperiffic}} (because they're [[EvilIsSexy villains]], after all), and don't actually have them engage in BDSM. Depending on context, Bondage Is Bad is often a subtrope of SexIsEvil, EvilIsSexy, or both. If played straight, it's often reinforced with hints of PuttingOnTheReich or whatever. A woman dressed as a {{Dominatrix}} will often be portrayed as a villain in fiction -- or at least a violent type -- for this reason.
