Master/slave relationship that turned into sex trafficking and modern-day slavery.
A master/slave relationship is a prevalent BDSM dynamic, and it consists of trust and mutual understanding between both partners. Usually, the slave will let their master control all aspects of their lives. It usually starts off slowly and will progress to a 24/7 total power exchange (TPE) over time.
Often in a master/slave dynamic, there will be a collaring ceremony that “ties” you to your master. Usually, there is a contract involved, too; however, it is always important to remember that this contract is not binding and never will be. The “contract” signifies your commitment to your partner and usually outlines each partner’s roles in the dynamic, along with rules and expectations. There are also negotiated limits of what you have consented to as a “slave.”
Master/slave is a power dynamic. However, it is essential to remember that you are a human being before you are your master’s slave. You are your own person, and you have your own opinion; you can withdraw consent at anytime or stop the dynamic. Slavery is illegal, and nobody is allowed to actually own another person.
I can across an article where a master/slave relationship turned into a cult-like setting; the “master” had up to six slaves, all of them collared and tattoed. Some of these “slaves” were branded. They were tattoed with an eight or nine-digit number on their bikini line, indicating that they belonged to their said master.
This so-called “master” beat them in public, would pimp them out to friends and clients. He was psychologically conditioning his slaves to be sex workers; it has been claimed that he even coerced underage girls. These slaves would go on sex tours with him, and his youngest slave was in an incest-themed porn that this “master” sold online. He sold other porn videos where his “slaves” were being subjected to extremely degrading sexual acts and extreme violence.
His slaves were taken to drug and booze-fuelled parties where they were marked with a number, no names, just a number. Used as a sex toy by unknown men. Some of these women were punched so hard that they had either black eyes or urinating blood for a week.
This “master” isolated and threatened his “slaves,” cutting them off from their families and friends. These slaves needed his permission to eat or even use the bathroom. Some were confined to cages for up to three days or chained up.
The above is not a healthy consensual relationship; BDSM is not about human trafficking or modern-day slavery. This so-called master and his friends are abusive predators that target vulnerable young women who often have past trauma or mental illness. They were forced into sex work by someone who claimed to love them and want to protect them.
Master/slave relationships take time and trust. It does not happen overnight, and you can not sign a “contract” and give up your individuality or human rights away. Your master will always have your best interests at heart; if you see any red flags or have a gut feeling that something is off, get away immediately.
