'NCIS' recap: 'Dark Secrets'

Fifty Shades of Grey was roundly criticized by both the psychological and BDSM communities for stating that Christian’s “singular tastes” derived from abuse and neglect, by depicting BDSM as, in the words of The Atlantic‘s Emma Green, “a pathology, not a path to pleasure.” By turning Melissa’s sexual desires into a shocking, shameful secret, NCIS is indulging in the same overgeneralization. At the very least, I wish the show had acknowledged the difference between healthy and unhealthy expressions of this type of kink.
