There has been a notable change in TV bondage. In the past, when a woman was gagged, even with a poor gag, she would remain silent or make faint gagged noises. We all look at these scenes and cringe. Yes, we like to see the woman nicely gagged. That cleave gag, OTM gag or tape gag is better than nothing, but we know that if the director let her scream, it would bring down the house.
Well, it is time to rejoice bothers and sisters. Yes, we are approaching the promised land....well, sort of.
Now, in quite a few scenes, they are letting the woman scream through their gag. And guess what? The gags aren't very effective. Sometimes they talk through their gags...real conversations. Forget gag talk. They just talk. And yes, tape fans...that goes for taped mouths (without stuffing) also....lots of noise.
Criminal Minds has let their women scream, but not always. More terror, I suppose. The Transporter (the series) had a scene where the hero tied and cleave gagged a bystander in a closet on the second floor in a house and during a fight, a fire broke out in the house. After the fight, he hears her screams from outside the house and remembers that he should rescue her! Outside the house!!! There are a lot of shows which have had gagged women screaming into poor gags in the last 2-3 years.
So, the TV producers have decided to be more realistic...great! That is progress of sorts.
Now TV producers, directors, and actresses...Now we need realistic gags. Put stuffing in woman's mouth or use gags that actually work. Just like we would!
Comments are always welcome...
