Et Consensu, Et Parere
The title is Google Latin for I Consent, I Obey. It comes from a story that almost no one has read. Yet.
This is the musing of someone new to consensual slavery as a slave. It is a simple concept stating that when you consent to what is happening, obedience becomes easy. Perhaps easier is a better way of saying it. It comes down to the idea of you agreed to do this (general) therefore you agree to do this (specific). This is a very important concept in consensual non-consent where consent is given in advance without knowing in advance all that is being consented to. In this case, Slave is saying that she consented to being her Master’s slave in all forms that it entailed. In this example, she is wearing Restraints on her wrists and ankles.
Until she consented, she would have fought against being restrained and treated this way. Now, she has consented and accepts that these restraints are her Master’s choice that she wears them so she obeys and no longer worries about whether or not she should obey, she just does. She no longer fights the control he has over her to regain the control over herself, which she had before submitting. Getting a slave to this point is one of the major goals for a Master practicing consensual enslavement. It comes easier with some and much harder with others. In the story it comes much quicker than it normally does with real people. This is because it is fiction and the author wanted it that way in order to explain concepts like this.
Getting someone to the ‘I consent’ point and having them mean it is not easy. It requires time, effort, and especially trust. The slave must trust that when she consents to her Master’s will, she will gain from it and not be harmed by it. It takes a strong person to consent, to surrender to that level. Few get and stay there but those who do find that even with the hard things their Master wants, ‘I obey’ comes easy. It is not instant full obedience but with each time obeying and her trust being verified it comes easier to trust and obey the next time.
Perhaps the phrase for the slave should be ego confideo, et consensu, et parere, or as Google translates it Crede mihi, ut consensus, ut parere. I trust, I consent, I obey. A starting goal but certainly not an end goal for consensual enslavement.
The quote is from a book on how to understand and do consensual enslavement entitled “I Can Do This” by Malkinius. The quote is from the last chapter of the fictional consensual slavery example. The fire pit is very significant in the first chapter and to her transition from free to slave.
