** Some complained that Irene became a sex worker for {{Fanservice}} purposes. WordOfGod pointed out that acting ''wasn't'' a reputable career in the late 19th century, and the [[SettingUpdate modern equivalent]] would be, well, a sex worker.

In fiction, people who enjoy UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}} have a tendency to be intellectuals. Possibly because [=BDSM=] tends to be more about the psychological mind games than just the ropes and spankings.[[note]] It can also be used as juxtaposition, where a submissive, by the books, or quiet straight arrow who usually plays by the rules secretly likes breaking those rules, or being dominant, is bolder or even just more self aware then the audience originally thought. This correlation may have some truth, [[http://gloria-brame.com/therapy/bdsmsurveyresults.html one survey]] found 20% of practitioners have post-graduate education.[[/note]] In a similar vein, coming up with creative ways to employ the various paraphernalia involved can be attractive to those with a technical or mechanical bent i.e. TheEngineer. Thus, an interest in [=BDSM=] can be used to underscore the character's intellectual side -- making this trope a mostly "positive stereotype" likely to be used on protagonists and other sympathetic characters.

--->'''Riddler:''' Correct me if I'm wrong, but had your superiors found out about my bit of snooping, I'd be much more than simply ''roughed up''…
---> '''Penguin:''' You'd be ''dead''. Okay, fine--I admit it. Sorry if the girls were a bit more into their roles than they were ''supposed'' to be.
--->'''Riddler:''' Best beating I ever got. As a matter of fact… pass along my number to the chippie with the whip, will you?

* ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'' is made of this trope. Terre D'Ange is by and large highly accepting of any sexual kinks, and while there's less talk among the general public about the S&M practices, they're also considered sacred. This view is magnified exponentially by the main character, who experiences pain as pleasure (the mark of her patron god). She is a high class prostitute, and engages in a wide range of masochistic sexual encounters. Many of these are portrayed as loving, cleansing, or just downright fun. The negative [=BDSM=] scenes are a result of true malice on the part of her client, and are portrayed as perversions of the kink, rather than the entirety of it. Moreover, Phedre is extremely intelligent, and the books often wax philosophical on the nature of pain, pleasure, and sexuality.

* Craig Schaefer’s books are notorious for this trope. The ''Literature/{{Daniel Faust}}'' series features a D/S relationship between the narrator/focal character and his lover, a brilliant and ruthless enforcer for the courts of hell. While rarely explicit, it’s pretty clear that Caitlin calls the shots in their relationship and in the bedroom. Notably, Faust is never presented as emasculated or weak for it: to the contrary, he’s a strong man made more powerful by the love of a strong woman. Meanwhile, in the ''Literature/{{Revanche Cycle}}'', Nessa and Mari end up in what is unquestionably a BDSM romance, even if it’s never openly described as such. The cerebral, repressed Nessa finds a rare emotional outlet in her power over Mari, a power the knight thrives upon (and which arguably saves her life when she goes up against Viper). The tiny moments in their love affair – like Nessa casually ordering Mari to fetch her glasses (from a table Nessa is standing next to), or occasionally tugging the taller, stronger woman around by her hair or shoving her against a wall to make a point – underline their entire power dynamic and relationship.
