Consensual Enslavement is the process by which someone is trained to be a slave in a Consensual Slavery relationship. It involves changing the slave’s mindset and modes of thinking about themselves, others and how they relate to the world around them and reinforcing that mindset. The change is going from the mindset of a free person to that of owned property.
This is the concept that someone can give prior consent to be involved in things to do or be forced to do things they might not otherwise give their consent to do. It is also simply called prior consent. This form of prior consent is considered given by the Submissive to the Dominant at the time of formal enslavement. That point is usually some form of Collaring Ceremony.
This concept is common in sports where participants give their prior consent to the physical or violent contact with other players. Things that could be assault or battery outside of a game are not illegal because of the consent to participate given when you participate in the sport. You understand the risks but assume them when you choose to be in the game.
The same is true of Consensual Enslavement and Consensual Slavery. Only those who choose to participate and understand the risks and dangers should be involved. By their, or your, participation, you give consent to what may happen. Because prior consent is given before the slave knows what all will happen the Last Free Choice of who their owner will be is so very important.
Consensual Slavery is a relationship form in which the submissive partner gives up control; often complete control, of the relationship, their actions, bodies and sexual activities to the dominant partner. This can include the exercise of their legal rights. It also includes the right for the dominant partner to punish disobedience to the dominant’s commands. This can be very similar to domestic abuse and may appear to be so from the outside. It is not abuse because the slave voluntarily gives the control out of emotional attachment and/or a wish to serve rather than out of fear.
Of course, it is dangerous. It is dangerous in the damage that could be caused, not just that others can see, hear, or know what it is we are doing. Consensual Enslavement is a form of brainwashing when it comes down to the base level. That is a dangerous thing to do to someone, even with their consent.
Ethics is something I also want to talk about here. If you don't have and keep to what could be considered safe and proper behavior, this changes to damage and abuse very quickly. The only thing that might be worse it deliberately doing stupid things with someone.
Internal Enslavement is a term for a combination of methods and goal whereby with the consent of the person enslaved, they are neurologically rewired into a state which puts service to another, with primary focus on the slave's owner, ahead of other pleasure seeking activities and who is cognitively conditioned to self-identify themselves as a slave or owned property of a specific person.
Internal Enslavement as a concept was created by an Englishman known as Tanos to combine and codify his knowledge and means of internalizing consensual enslavement.
http//www.enslavement.org.uk is the main web site for his theory. The early essays by Tanos and others were collected starting about the year 2000. Those essays and the theories on that site have proved very useful in the understanding of consensual enslavement.
Internal enslavement is a state where the slave has their slavery internalized as their new default state. Masochists are not necessarily slave material. They seek sensation, usually in the form of pain and sometimes other forms of suffering for their own reasons. You do not need to make someone suffer to enslave them. The desire to serve and even suffer for someone if it makes them happy, on the other hand, is much more common among slaves than most groups and they often get mistaken for masochists rather than the other directed submissive which they really are.
