An artist reimagines Disney Princesses in BDSM scenarios

  

Those that know me, know I have my own little corner on my EROTICA page for taking Disney stories and twisting them into takes about sexual exploration.

I’m not going to stop there – there’s more to come. But for now, I want to talk about the public’s reaction to it.

  
Now I’m not here to say I’m right, they’re wrong – etc. I’m here merely to discuss why people are so turned off by the material.
A main point argued is that the princesses are like sixteen, seventeen – whatever. Now, there have been artists that have sculpted nudes of people for centuries. We’ve probably been looking at nude paintings of women that are underage and accepting it of art. 
Secondly, did people forget these drawings are clearly intended for an adult audience? Does no one find these the least bit interesting and/or arousing? 

Call me a bit strange but I feel like people are forgetting that most of our sexual encounters were in our teens. 

I mean, sure, we get protective of our young the older we get. And the older we get the more we realise what being young really means. So we want to protect this person’s innocence. 
But isn’t that where we are lead to a truth? Isn’t there beauty in these scenarios conjured by the artist? I mean, these are tasteful and erotic pieces. They’re not the crudely drawn pictures you can find under google images – given the right searched phrase. 
So, I saw these pictures on Facebook, followed by a series of comments ranging from “this is wrong” to “this is borderline child porn” and I don’t know if this is about the fact that it’s these characters or that it’s about BDSM. Or both.
Either way, I don’t quite understand why some aren’t open to sexuality. I guess I don’t see a piece of artwork as such an abomination.

  1. I for one love the Disney/ BDSM images. They call to me in so many ways. Peoples prejudging of them isn’t shocking. People get defensive about what they don’t understand or are scared of what they feel when they see something that makes them question what they think and if it take a appropriation of an artwork to do that, to make them question things or solidify what they already thought then so be it. But for me, I makes me thinks, isn’t there a part in all of us that wants to be the perfect princess to be guided into that world or the prince that guides them there if their strong hands and possessive words??

  2. My guess is that part of the story is sexual shame. Shame is an emotional issue, so it doesn’t tend to be dislodged by direct rational arguments.

    For a lot of people, Disney is a treasured part of their childhood and youth. Disney represents innocence and wholesomeness, which can include “pure” romance and marriage (e.g. the “fairy tale wedding”), and there is an expectation that kids (especially girls) will dream about those things.

    Romance and sex are obviously closely related, but culturally a line is drawn between them. So when innocently romantic Disney images are made erotic, it crosses that line, and people lose their shit. I don’t think it’s really about the age of the characters (people routinely forget that Juliet is 13 years old), but rather that people feel like their idea of childhood is being tainted.

  3. I think the images are very hot. And I like the mind play here…challenging the viewer to see a beloved and pure princess in an expanded way. A more well rounded and human way.

    I do not understand the offense. These are fictional characters now being shown in a way that opposes the original way the public came to know them. That’s all. That’s no offense to me. Besides I really like the slutty Jasmine and I’ve long fantasized about The Beast being more beastly. 😉

  4. I love these, they’re cute, sexy and sweet.
    But now my daughter is grown I am fond of, but quite detached from the characters. Would I see it differently of my daughter was still a child totally obsessed with these princesses? Maybe.
