Erotic Bondage Photography Art Restrains Inhibitions

People could write books about erotic bondage photography art and probably have. The use of the word bondage conjures images of slavery and servitude. Erotic bondage photography implies a form of sexual slavery. To some people, this is simply an exploitation of rape.

Whatever the viewpoints on the matter, erotic bondage photography art does not explore servitude, slavery or rape. All three of those concepts are about the forcible removal of power and imposition of another's will. Bondage as depicted in this form of art is about the willing surrender of control.

Yes, control and power are similar concepts but they are not exactly the same. Erotic bondage photography art is about the liberation of pleasure and surrender of inhibitions. The reasons why people choose to participate in bondage are as varied as the subject matter. One way to explain the appeal of bondage art is to consider the sub-genre in romance novels of the bodice ripper. The bodice ripper often features heroines being unwillingly ravished by the hero, they experience pleasure and quite often develop deep feelings for their 'captors' because they were not allowed to tell them no. While bodice rippers and bondage art are not exactly similar, the same emotions are generated and venerated by them.

Erotic bondage photography art is complicated. The concept is complicated and understanding the concept is complicated. The surrender is about trust, not power. The decision to surrender and willing submission displays deep and abiding trust in a partner. The trust is about putting not only control into the hands of another, but pleasure as well. It is not unusual to wonder how anyone can derive pleasure from restraint, yet is not one of the most erotic portions of getting to know a potential lover, the expression of attraction without consummation?

Trust is a word that can be tossed around with ease, but experiencing it to the point of handing total physical control over to someone else is rare. Erotic bondage photography art tries to catalog and display this very visceral interlude. Fear, misunderstanding and disapproval color the way the worldviews erotic bondage photography art. Yet, even the most vanilla of sexual partners may engage in a bit of role-playing and erotic bondage photography art grasps those fleeting moments as well.
