Author apparently doesn't understand this scene. There are women who enjoy being degraded, but then there are also men who enjoy being degraded.
The BDSM scene is impeccably gender-equal in this regard.
In fact, there is a thriving business model for dominatrixes, women who degrade and inflict pain on men for money. I'm unaware of men being able to make a living doing the same for women.
Somebody really ought to find a link to the famous SNL Pelosi/Palomino skit. One of the funniest things they ever did.
Seek and ye shall find.
