- a kinky sex act where one person has another tied up, retrained, or otherwise unable to move or get away from sexual or other acts.
Bondage is a pretty wide field. it includes everything from S&M domination (which is very hardcore and rough, and rarely involves actual sex) to the more common fur lined handcuffs, Japanese rope bondage, and the like. Bondage is part of domination, and is actually a fairly common sexual play for many couples. However,bondage is often linked to rape and non-consensual sex acts, and as such is often vilified by anti-porn activists. Bondage scenes are often used when they are trying to make a point about porn being degrading or otherwise a negative for women, perhaps not realizing that men are often the ones being bound!
