CAUTION: Question re: SI

Posted by coral on April 28, 2003, at 18:53:24

Has anyone seen the movie "The Secretary"?

The plot: A young woman is released from a mental institution and she self-injures. She goes to work for a very exacting, domineering and demanding boss. He instructs her not to SI anymore and she complies. He, then, begins to spank her when she's made mistakes which she finds erotic, as does he. She battles to keep the relationship when he exhibits vulnerability. She does so by exhibiting absolute compliance to his wishes and the movie ends in a very tender scene where he's bathing her.

What I saw in the movie was a connection that SI could be successfully replaced by a BDSM relationship and, frankly, thought people who were SI'ers as well as people who were BDSM'ers would be offended.

I would dearly love to hear others' thoughts.
