It does not effect me very much as i tend not to watch many shows that have those kinds of scenes. But there are a few well placed ones that end up pretty hysterically.

I can honestly say my favorite one is in the beginning of Tower of Druaga.

It is nothing lewd, but it is hysterical how it plays out.

Nah, I mean people who say 'no', or that they shouldn't, or 'don't' or 'stop it' but the point is that they aren't physically resisting it, yelling or crying. I was saying that this kind of resistance-but-not-really is generally much more easily found than the two more extreme variants that you described.

But wait, you think something "should be done" about masochists?

Or did I totally misinterpret that.

Pfft. Sure I do. I'll openly admit it. I'm a fan of tentacle scenes in hentai. Sure, I'd prefer it not to be in my everyday anime because that's not what I'm watching my everyday anime for, but even then, if it is in my everyday anime, I'd probably just find it funny or I'd just raise an eyebrow and wonder what the hell is going on, such as in that wonderfully ridiculous ending of a particular Dog Days episode. But other than that it certainly wouldn't offend me in any way.

Yeah, that's what I meant about people who do something they'll regret (but still willingly choose to do it), or who are having their feelings come into conflict with things like duty, social mores, etc. (like a story where a princess and commoner hook up, they really want to, but give that feeble "we really shouldn't...." while totes going at it like beasts).

I can think of quite a few things to do to masochists!....

What I meant tho' was just that for scenarios where there is objective harm being done, but both participants are willing, then that it does become murky because there is the question of what moral obligations one has to not harm oneself (an issue for the characters to explore), or for the viewer and industry, what it means for that material to be part of the media they buy / support or produce.

Righty, though in the first case it's more often only one of the participants objecting, and people refer to it as rape fantasy, given how it's often male on female, marketed towards a straight male audience.

For the second part, I don't really see what there is to get at, as I don't think there is any moral obligation to not harm yourself, unless we're talking about suicide. Could you elaborate on this? The thing is, if pain is pleasure for someone, then we're talking about a self-imposed obligation to not indulge in pleasurable pursuits aka. asceticism or something. That would be based on someone's free choice, just as it would be based on their own freedom if they want to do those things to begin with, because whether what one does with their body is deemed moral by their society or not, ultimately your body is your only true, unalienable property. The law still has to be applied in cases where people get hurt/killed doing these kind of things, but morality and law are far from superimposed.

Now, if we're talking about children or the mentally handicapped there are obviously other factors at play.

For the no-self harm part, I was more or less wondering what moral obligation the other party might have to not indulge in what would bring harm to the other: even though the other party might be willing, does the harm they would impose carry a heavy moral obligation to not do, than to allow for the indulgence of the free-will of the other party?

Well, in that case I think one would need to ask themselves if they have the authority to declare that causing that harm would be beneath their moral standards. Basically it revolves around whether you're going to accept the other person the way they are, or refuse, which suggests that you think there's something wrong with them which needs fixing. Tough question, imo.

To tie this into the topic somehow: If I was a tentacle monster, and there was a girl tied up asking me to do bad things to her, would I? Or would it be beneath my moral dignity as a tentacle monster to be a tool in causing harm to another?

I like it. Not gunna lie. It's exciting to see it in anime with cute girls. Nobunagun is a perfect example. Within the last 5 episodes Nobunagun was "raped" by tentacles lol.

Maybe it's not the discussion this thread needs, but the one it deserves.
