Alice: "Now do as I command, slave" Slaveboy: "Yes" Alice: *cracks whip* "You say yes Mistress Alice! NOW!" Slaveboy:"Yes Mistress Alice"
Exploited: The owner of the local S&M club offers Alice a job, knowing customers will love to be dominated by her.
Alice does not believe power dynamics should be brought into the bedroom, for real or for fantasy.
Alice finds she prefers to sub.
Alice has a Freudian Excuse for her dominating personality: she's been through a string of bad relationships with controlling, manipulative jerks, so now she feels a pathological need to be the one in control.
Alice tries to punish a man who is working with her on a project for some slight to her dominance...and he points out that he's actually the one with seniority at the office, and that her Fetish Fuel behavior is inappropriate to the situation.
Reconstructed: Alice is a kind, well-adjusted woman who enjoys consensual S&M play with her boyfriend Bob (who enjoys being a sub in the bedroom, but knows how to stand up for himself when he needs to). Alice and Bob have a perfectly healthy relationship, and they treat each other with mutual respect.
Played For Laughs: Alice dominates... animals, both real and stuffed. Hilarity Ensues when she visits a zoo.
Played For Drama: Alice dominates men and wears a skimpy leather outfit... buts it's strictly because her perverted boyfriend Charlie forces her to. She does it begrugingly and loathes being sexualized. Her raging body issues don't help.
