The show: The Vikings" I find to be very interesting,
The dominance is such that she must ask for him to strike her
If you would like to watch the entire scene, click on this link.
However, the intelligence used in creating the scene is quite excellent...
She is married, and has offered herself to him (he is the leader of the army in Paris that has been attacked by the Vikings.
It is a very Catholic society!
He takes her privately to the dungeon....
Now, is she voluntarily participating, or is he just going to flog her mercilessly, and then have her tried for adultery??????
So, she must acquiesce to being flogged...
Spoiler alert, please do not write anything about any follow-up with her and him in season three!!!
The link attached is quite amazing!!!
