Mainstream

I think it is interesting that TTWD is creeping into the mainstream media, a sign that our lifestyle is becoming more accepted. For example, Showtime has a new show called "Billions'' about a U.S. attorney pursuing a hedge fund manager for insider training. The first scene on the first show is the attorney tied up on the floor while his wife steps on him with her high heels and then puts a cigarette out on his chest. And then at the end of the first show they are hugging and she again puts her shoe on his chest. The scenes are very short but a sign that we may be coming out of the shadows a bit.

  1. I don't watch this show but I've noticed it too lately. There was an episode on Elementary last season, and I even noticed a mention of spanking on Blue Bloods. You know what they say, 'everything old is new again.' I guess if you're lucky enough to be around, you enjoy the re-emergence of the things you did and didn't enjoy.

  4. Hey FD...I don't have Showtime but once in a while they give us a free weekend as a teaser so I did see that first episode of "Billions". I have noticed odd references to spankings in mainstream entertainment lately.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  5. My mouth dropped open when I saw that first episode of Billions. Let's hope it gives us more of the same. It would be a great step forward if they actually allowed a main character in a big name show to have a D/s relationship. Fingers crossed!

  6. It would be a step forward if it were more in the mainstream and we could tell our vanilla friends about our lifestyle without worrying about what they might think.
