Polls: BDSM/Slavefic

Hi, guys! Two polls for you: BDSM and slavefic questions. As you know, BDSM is mutually-consenting play, and slavefic is actual slavery, so there is a big difference between the two, hence the separate polls.

I put in several options. I'm aware that some people would dispute that romantic feelings can truly develop between Masters and slaves, but there must have been some in the long litany of human history. And in fanfic, it's a favorite theme.


The BDSM genre appeals to me because I like:

The exploration of the power dynamics of Master/slave
18(25.0%)
The sub holding the ultimate power
7(9.7%)
The characters trusting one another enough to play D/s
20(27.8%)
The fulfillment of kinky fantasies
15(20.8%)
The different ways that the lifestyle can be explored: (weekends only, club scene, 24/7, etc.)
12(16.7%)

The Slavefic genre appeals to me because I like:

The exploration of the power dynamics of Master/slave
15(9.7%)
The way that slavery affects not only the slave, but the Master
17(11.0%)
The vulnerability of the slave and how the Master protects him/her, and the reverse
16(10.3%)
The sociopolitical background
15(9.7%)
Stories in which slavery is simply accepted by the characters (no Abolitionist themes), but they work within its framework
8(5.2%)
Stories in which Abolitionism plays a part or is the main theme
7(4.5%)
Stories in which there is an evolution from acceptance of slavery to Abolitionism
10(6.5%)
The exploration of a Stockholm Syndrome scenario in which the slave (and/or even the Master) develops romantic feelings
17(11.0%)
The exploration of genuine romantic feelings and the balancing of that with Master/slave reality
20(12.9%)
Stories set in the past or in SF/fantasy AUs
15(9.7%)
Stories that are set in contemporary times but the society practices slavery
15(9.7%)
