A recent tag that has come into focus was one known as “Happy Bondage”.
 
The apparent meaning of this tag is: Where the character in bondage is showing clear signs of happyness and consent to the bondage.
 
As it was rarely used it had largely gone unnoticed. But what do others think about giving it a clearer definition and applying it where appropriate?
 
Of note: There needs to be a clearly defined difference between “Happy bondage” and “consensual bondage”. As just because a character is consenting, that doesn’t mean they are showing signs of being happy.  
Examples:  
What would apply for the “happy bondage” tag: [NSFW images]

What is consensual bondage, but not “happy”: [NSFW images]  
>>977925  
>>1269824
 
In summary: What do other’s think of the creation and tagging of “happy bondage”? and Post suggestions for a clear definition.

It seems that “Happy Bondage” would be a subset of “Consensual Bondage”. In other words, in order to be “Happy” it would have to be “Consensual”.
 
But only some “Consensual Bondage” would qualify for “Happy Bondage”?
 
Is that what you mean?

Indeed.  
Sadly, searching for “Bondage, consensual” only yields 23 pics because not many bother with tagging “consensual”. So it can’t be easily searched through that method.

Well anything that isn’t tagged rape is assumed to be consensual, so I see little point to having this tag, honestly, feels redundant and not well defined.

I think a better definition would be “Where the character in bondage is clearly enjoying it”, or something to that effect. this would also make it a subset of consensual bondage.

honestly, I don’t just disagree because it’s just more of the same from consensual, something you could very likely find with just adding the tag Happy or Smile next to your bondage searches, but it’s also asinine..
 
does this really warrant its own tag? it would be like asking for Happy Sex, just try to understand how ridiculous this all is.. and all it becomes is another super specific tag that needs tagging on who knows how many images (instance, I found about 700+ images with the combination of Bondage + Smile)
 
 
why not something else that makes more sense, like willing? a tag like that could also apply across the board with more fetishes and it basically means giving full consent for the pleasure of flesh, ie, more than happy to oblige. I only say this because, for a fetish and sexual thing, it more than applies and fits, it’s basically in the same dictionary as the other sexual act words.  
I know there’s some people who might care, but you have many other tags assisting in finding those and they exist there for a reason, hence the need to tag images properly, so as to not become completely obsolete.

Well, “happy sex” is applied to about 606 images at time of posting.
 
Not only that. Just adding “smile, -rape” to a bondage search wouldn’t necessarily bring the same results. As you could have the “dom” be the one happy while the bondaged one is not.

I agree - looking through the tag there’s too many where the person smiling isn’t the person in bondage.
 
Example [NSFW] >>1176980 (deleted)
 
There’s also a couple with this tag where something is broken - the tag is “on the image” in that if you search for “Happy Bondage” you find the image, and the tag was added to the image, but the tag doesn’t show up in the list of tags. Example [NSFW]
 
I think that “Happy Bondage” should be cleaned up, and replaced with “bondage” and “consensual”

But “happy bondage” is even less useful today - let’s fix the ones that are supposed to be there, rather than adding a new one to the mix.

Personally, I’d be for doing both.  
Obviously fixing what’s there already, as is needed.  
But adding this tag on top of it while doing so. If people feel it’s needed.
 
Either way the tags need to be looked at and touched up. This is determining if an extra step is desired or not.

And DJ Pon-3 makes a point, it’s silly to pigeonhole a tag just into one niche of one fetish only. Happy sex I am fine with as it’s pretty general and could apply to anything, why not just search for “happy sex, bondage”, is there any real need for a happy bondage tag? What about a happy watersports tag, or love piss? Can I have that?

However, the results would have to be necessarily explicit in this search, and it would yield too little on the way of people are actually looking for.
