In fiction images of light bondage will often be used to reveal that a character is a rapist or otherwise perverted.
In most cases the bondage imagery will be laughably tame, usually featuring images of leather clothing or a corset.
This is sometimes due to censorship preventing more violent imagery.
In the pilot Episode of Dexter bondage magazines are found in the home of a rapist who makes snuff films. The images in the magazine mostly feature women in leather gear.
CSI featured a killer who drew bondage comics. The comics seemed to just feature tied up women in lingerie.
