An S&M story in the Bible?

How far will Samson and Delilah go?

eading a Bible story as a child, you’d find Samson, the hero with great strength, getting asked by Delilah how he can be tied up. But you wouldn’t ask . . . why?

When a feminist Bible scholar suggests they’re doing S&M games . . . you’re startled.

“Samson submits willingly to Delilah so she can tie him up, a classic bondage game,” says Lori Rowlett. “When he tired of winning every time, he delves into an act of deeper submission.”
