The Bachelor is a BDSM Fantasy.

I confess I really enjoy The Bachelor. But it’s looking more and more like a Sado- Masochistic fantasy World. The Bachelor is The Lord and the Ladies are his Love Slaves. I suspect contestants suffer permanent Psychological trauma from being part of this Show. The Power Dynamic is classic Sado-Masochism. Imagine falling in love with someone dating multiple partners. That’s got to mess with your Psyche. The Show prolongs the anxiety and stress for weeks. The women who act badly are thrown off the Show. The Lord/Bachelor tells several Women he sees a life with them. Then they see him passionately kissing their rivals. That’s got to feel like a knife to the heart. But instead of leaving the show the Masochists endure the pain hoping they will prevail and be chosen by The Master/Bachelor. How could this process lead to a healthy Marriage? The Women left behind are probably haunted by this experience for years. I doubt the Marriage of The Lord and The Love Slave works out when The Show is over. Their ugly divorce ends up in the Tabloids. And the Show goes on leaving a trail of wreckage.
