With her patriotic, waist cinching bustier, her metal arm cuffs, and her "lasso of truth", Wonder Woman (Amazon goddess / crime fighting superhero) as super dominatrix , is pretty obvious. But the character makes even more sense when you learn about the man who created her in 1942. William Moulton Marston was a psychologist, a feminist and polyamorous. He dreamed of a utopian society where women would "use sexual enslavement to achieve dominance over men, who would happily submit to their loving authority."
He also invented the lie detector.
