We'd like to thank the editors and staff at Newsweek for reminding us why we only read the foreign press. And they did it with a visual metaphor:

Someone at the magazine (we assume--it could just be something they stole from a high school newspaper) actually tried to write words to justify putting an S&M reference on the cover of a mainstream news magazine, although the best she could come up with was:
In an age where women are dominating—in the workplace, at school, at home—why are they seeking to be dominated in their love lives? Recent media portrayals have shown that a rising number of modern women fantasize about being overpowered...
Now, we're thinking this "writer" may have gotten things a little backward because these "dominating" women who are "dominating" are faced with this when it comes to control of their own bodies:

Perhaps the "writer" just got confused and transposed dominating and dominated. Somebody get rewrite on the phone!
