Asuna needed to be punished for daring to have agency instead of sitting meekly in her cage waiting for the hero to save her like a proper damsel in distress. And since Sugou's threats of rape haven't done the trick, Kawahara had to turn it up a notch by introducing tentacles. Who cares that it doesn't make a lick of sense? And its not like introducing one of the worst misogynistic elements of old school anime to the story reinforces the complaints of sexism or anything.
