I do think that rough sex can be good sex, can be consensual sex, but in still photographs like this - and even in a lot of video I've seen - there can be such a fine line between rough, "dirty" sex and rape, and I think there's something creepy about blurring together sex and violence in the mainstream. I don't believe images like these "lead" to rape, but I think if they were to form a significant part of the zeitgeist that they would and do have the power to shape boys', girls', men's, and women's expectations of sex, power, violence and gender.
As to your question, eboni, I must say that I generally enjoy on-screen sex scenes. Admittedly, I don't watch a lot of primetime soapy stuff, so it's been a long time since I've seen shows like Melrose Place which had the ubiquitous, ultra-softcore, under-the-sheets scene in every episode - I agree that those can get old fast and don't really add much to the story. But cable sex like in True Blood, Dexter... yeah, I don't mind those at all.
