Perfectly faceless


Have you heard of Maison Martin Margiela? It's a fashion house so committed to drone-like depersonalization that the labels it puts on its clothes are just a series of numbers. But its biggest claim to fame is the masks you see in these pictures. They turn their models into faceless objects, less than human but oh so beautiful. That's how I see it, anyway.

Let's ignore the fact that a certain famous somebody (who's so conceited already that I won't lower myself to say his name) is a big part of why these masks became famous. Instead, let's revel in the idea of people whose individuality has been stolen from them. These models been reduced to living mannequins, objects of art - and they've been put on display in all their mindless glory, so that we can admire the skill of the ones who made them that way.

There is a fine line between scary and sexy; the thrill if a fantasy against the horror or reality. I am not sure how I feel about this. While it is highly erotic, I have to ask: is this what I really want to see happen?

Trust is an essential component to D/s, MC, etc... I'm not sure that I have that trust vis-a-vis our real life masters.

It's certainly not what *I* want in real life, and on the rare occasions when I encounter people who really would like a world of non-consensual mind control, I back the hell away.

For me MC is just a fetish, a fantasy. But that's not to say I wouldn't enjoy a consensual relationship with a hypnotist!
