As we briefly alluded to in the most recent episode of the Go For Rainbow! Podcast there are a lot of unexpected sexual fetishes out there. Interestingly, sometimes these fetishes collude with the psyche of a gamer, who is also an artist, with the following results.

At what point does a fetish become a "perversion" or immoral? These images clearly take satisfaction in the idea of a girl being rendered helpless. Some of these images imply impending harm or death. 

Of course, no one was harmed in the making of these images of fictional characters.

What do you think? Is this fetish another case of misogyny that should be stamped out or just some artists having harmless fun?
