I imagine this strip is actually the most controversial one in this arc!
In case it needs explaining, BDSM is actually one of the most consent-driven lifestyles I've ever encountered in my life. So... no, Candy isn't exactly a swimming fit for the job as a dominatrix right now. But Clarice seems to approve, and I trust Clarice's instincts, so I like to think she spent the next year or so carefully guiding Candy away from being vindictive and abusive, toward offering pain only to those who find pleasure in it.
... and employing a safeword.
