The ridiculous point in this article is that women biologically feel the need to be repressed or submissive, and because society is more feminist and empowers women more now, they now seek out submission sex in a way they didn't in the past. She doesn't even acknowledge that women now feel more psychologically sexually free to fantasize and take control of their own sex lives and that is more likely a reason why female erotica (both BDSM related and not) is becoming more popular. It isn't that women are rejecting feminization because biologically they feel the need to be beneath a man and submissive. Not to mention the article completely ignores lesbian female sexuality because it's all talked about in relation to men - which is another problem in and of itself. It's just a whole mess of broad and unfounded claims. Not to mention that she makes the claim that erotic imagination is biologically determined while ignoring how societal influences such as the media help shape sexual identity and fantasy.
Claiming that the rise of female erotica is due to women being overwhelmed by gains in power and standing in society and feeling the need to reject feminism through sexual submission just seems laughably ridiculous. She doesn't even humor the idea that the rise of female erotica, both of a "submissive" nature or not, can be attributed to women becoming more comfortable not just thinking sexually and forming sexual identity based on their own personal wants and desires (rather than those of a man), but also acting sexually. Women are exploring sex in a much more curious and open way today than they were even just 10 years ago. Some women are finding BDSM appealing, some do not. But this doesn't mean that women as a whole are rejecting feminism in favor of sexual submission.
