As everyone here knows, DC has gotten a shit tonne of criticism for their portrayal of sex in their New 52 line. Not without reason of course since the sex that has been portrayed so far has been nothing short of fanservice.

But then, back in 1990, DC got away with this...

Makes me wonder what the reactions to THIS was back then if people of today complained about the Batman/Catwoman sex scene in Catwoman #1. At best no one was in any position to complain about the scene being non-consensual. :}


Warning for sex and nudity. NSFW.

Are we really calling the scene from Catwoman 'rape', now? It just.. Well, it seems a little extreme, somehow.

As for the main scene, I think people would kick up even more of a fuss than they have about the other scenes. You can see her rear! And a nipple! And it's even more obvious what they're doing than in the Catwoman scene.

Yeah, I found that scene a bit uncomfortable, but I wouldn't go so far as 'rape'.

Can you... not use the word rape sarcastically? I mean... given the weight of it, and the way our culture also tend to dismiss it easily... if you don't believe it's the right way to call that scene, it's just probably less inflammatory not to use the word at all? Please.

You've already deleted the comment so I apologize for bringing it up again, but I'm genuinely curious: people were complaining about it having rape overtones? What were they specifically? Because I didn't see that at all when I read it.

Maybe I was just too happy to see a domme presented as something other than a joke, but I read that he always resists because that's just part of the game/scene. Which, admittedly, is exactly what I wanted to see.

Yeah--whether it was too explicit for it's rating can be argued (I think I've seen worse on Battlestar Galactica, for example), but calling it rape seems WAY too extreme, IMO.

I feel like people would be calling it "rape" a lot more if the genders were reversed.
