Criminal Minds: Today I Do s6e15


This criminal minds episode hits WAY TOO CLOSE TO HOME! Jane, a former Anorexic, now Bulimic, likes dominance. Her boyfriend is into micro-management. After he breaks her jaw, she breaks up with him. Sometime later she moves in with dominant friend. The friend helps her “recover” through taking complete control. They must have talked about sexual fantasies at some point because as soon as Jane sees her friend, after waking up chained to a bed, she stops freaking out. The friend asks why she was freaking out. Jane says,  “I thought I’d been kidnapped by a psychopath. I haven’t done this before. How was I supposed to react?”

After that things start going crazy. Jane stops playing the game and asks to go home and this makes the Domme very, very unhappy. So, she reenacts that awful hobbling scene from Misery (1990). The friend is a serial killer. Her previous victim was severely depressed.

Rossi: “Your daughter is specifically vulnerable to this suspect because of her private emotional issues.”

Errr…..AWKWARD….

They also talk about how all these things boil down to control. Mayhap I have control issues? :p

Criminal Minds – Does it inspire crime?


I couldn’t say for sure, but I can tell you it inspires my fantasies and a few scenes. I remember talking to my Dom one night when he said, “Turn on the TV! You’d like what is going on in Criminal Minds!” So, I did and he was right. 😉 Maybe that makes me a sick, twisted freak. In real life, the story lines would turn my stomach, but in the hands of a person I care about, some otherwise depraved, evil actions become hot. Oops…

However, if the ideas on that show inspire two consenting adults like us, why is it out of the realm of possibility that the storylines would inspire someone who doesn’t care about SSC or RACK (Safe, Sane, and Consensual; Risk Aware Consensual Kink)  to do awful things?

This post comes to you because it is Wednesday night and that means CM! 🙂 My favorite character is Spencer because he is geeky and extremely intelligent. Also, welcome to my brain Dr. Reid… I just wanted to hug him and the poor boy in the episode.

I hear prosecutors grumble about the CSI effect, CSI gives people unrealistic expectations for evidence or worse, gives criminals ideas on how to hide their deeds. Therefore, we know TV can effect real life crime and justice. Do you think Criminal Minds inspires crime?
