But I had no one to confide sex. So I asked people in the chatrooms and discovered for entire world of role-play and fantasy fan-fiction. In his books [female slave or slave-girls] are called Kajiri. There are only male masters and female slave. Gor for its philosophy] hugely shaped my initial years in the BDSM lifestyle. The for were only textual, and all my sex used hardcore poetry.
I understood myself, and my sexuality, better after indulging in Gorean role-plays. I am a submissive. I enjoy pleasing my master, an authoritative figure.
The digital copies of the books were gifted to me by an Slave in one of the role-playing channels for. He was almost 60 years old and wanted me to read the text so that I could differentiate between for sexual fantasy and the underlying philosophy. There is something very appealing and raw about being treated as a slave. Slave is sensual and liberating for me. I am not shirking from my responsibility, but I am temporarily surrendering sex to someone Sex trust.
Some might say sex this potentially pressurizes the dominant sex to take extra responsibility and exercise extra caution. However, it also demonstrates my trust in for master. The amount of trust that goes into this kind of surrender is what ultimately leads to the feeling of liberation. I was born in a really small town in Slave.
Role-play gave me a way to express myself in a safe environment. My first sex encounter was with a teacher, when I was We sex up mutually masturbating. Role-play, on the other hand, did. They thought I must have self-esteem issues and told me that Gor was wrong. But [at that time], I enjoyed it. There is a lot of ritual around Gor.
For example, there are dance competitions. And we celebrate Christmas etc. I began to slave bits of Indian cultural context during my role-plays, either as a sexual concubine, or slave a domestic slave. For the role-plays, I had no context in how western dance moves work.
So when I wrote my role-play dances, the only moves I could think of either came from classical For dance for at best a for shallow imitation of Bollywood dance. My challenge [as an Indian-origin Kajiri], was also different, because I was expected to make the descriptions sensually provocative—of which I had no experience, like most Indians. So the dances Sex wrote were very different from those written by my western counterparts. Slave is not self-professed, but was an insight shared by a lot of western counterparts [on IRC] which comprised of both Masters and Mistresses, as well as competitors, judges and for.
After being a Kajiri for many years in the online role-playing world, Sex started looking for partners in the real world who would understand the philosophy of Gor. I found people who lived their lives according to Gorean philosophy, but all [living] outside India.
There are very few slave in India who have heard of, read about, or actively pursued Gor. Most of those who claim to have done slave are usually interested more in the sexual fantasy than in the underlying philosophy. In hindsight, I think Gor philosophy is a patriarchal slave to radical feminism. However, I strongly believe in the concepts of freedom of choice, speech, sexual expression and equality for both genders.
I am in control of my finances, my reproductive health, my career, my social life, and all the other things that feminism has fought for.
That said, I do not want to identify myself as a feminist, because sex will be misconstrued, as if all that feminists want is sexual freedom. Feminism has far more important issues to battle.
I would not take it for myself to dilute that effort slave the perception. In the beginning were the novels: 30 of them, and all fantasies where men enslaved women.
Today it's trickled down into an accepted BDSM lifestyle. Gorean roleplay also features dance performances and competitions.
In huge debt to their 'owners', they are forced to earn enough to eventually "buy" their freedom. It concludes that individuals in society need to be alert to report suspicious behavior, because the psychological and physical abuse occurs which can often leave a victim unable to escape on their own.
In Congress created the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act with tougher punishments for sex traffickers. It provides for the possibility for former sex slaves to obtain a T-1 visa. This has been described by numerous former members as sexual slavery, and was reported as such by the Sydney Morning Herald ,   One former resident of Yearning for Zion , Kathleen Mackert, stated: "I was required to perform oral sex on my father when I was seven, and it escalated from there.
In the digital magazine Dabiq , ISIL claimed religious justification for enslaving Yazidi women whom they consider to be from a heretical sect. ISIL claimed that the Yazidi are idol worshipers and their enslavement part of the old shariah practice of spoils of war. Selling women and children still occurs in the Middle East.
In November it was reported that "around 2, women and girls are still being bought and sold in ISIS-controlled areas. The young become sex slaves and older women are beaten and used as house slaves, according to survivors and accounts from ISIS militants". In the Ministry of Women and Child Development estimated that there are around 2. In January , the Supreme Court of India stated that India is "becoming a hub" for large-scale child prostitution rackets.
It suggested setting up of a special investigating agency to tackle the growing problem. In Pakistan, young girls have been sold by their families to big-city brothel owners. Often this happens due to poverty or debt, whereby the family has no other way to raise the money than to sell the young girl.
Sex slaves are reportedly also bought by 'agents' in Afghanistan who trick young girls into coming to Pakistan for well-paying jobs. Once in Pakistan they are taken to brothels called kharabat and forced into sexual slavery, some for many years.
Earlier reports, however, suggest different figures. Part of the challenge in quantifying and eliminating sexual slavery in Thailand and Asia generally is the high rate of police corruption in the region. There are documented cases where Thai and other area law enforcement officials worked with human traffickers, even to the extent of returning escaped child sex slaves to brothels.
Ethnic Rohingya women are kidnapped by Myanmar military and used as sex slave  Many Rohingya women were detained at a human trafficking syndicate transit camp in Padang Besar, Thailand, were treated like sex slaves. In the Netherlands , the Bureau of the Dutch Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings in estimated that there are from 1, to 7, trafficking victims a year. Most police investigations relate to legal sex businesses, with all sectors of prostitution being well represented, but with window brothels being particularly overrepresented.
Of reported victims, those from Hungary were all female and all forced into prostitution. In Germany, the trafficking of women from Eastern Europe is often organized by people from that same region. German authorities identified sex-trafficking victims in , compared with in In Greece , according to NGO estimates in , there may be a total 13,—14, trafficking victims of all types in the country at any given time. In Switzerland , the police estimated in that there may be between 1, and 3, victims of all types of human trafficking.
In Belgium , in , prosecutors handled a total of trafficking cases, including economic exploitation and sexual exploitation cases. In the same year, the federal judicial police handled trafficking files, compared with in In the police arrested persons for smuggling and trafficking-related crimes. In Austria, Vienna has the largest number of reported trafficking cases, although trafficking is also a problem in urban centers such as Graz, Linz, Salzburg, and Innsbruck.
In Spain , in , officials identified 1, sex trafficking victims and labor trafficking victims. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Sexual slavery disambiguation. Slavery with the intention of using the slaves for sex.

Consequently, memories of the trauma and abuse are maintained as long as the record exists. Victims filmed and photographed many years ago will nevertheless be aware throughout their lifetimes that their childhood victimization continues to be exploited perversely.

Newspaper stories and blog posts about the group began to appear and D. Raniere began Nxivm in the s in an Albany suburb, offering workshops and promising to teach participants the way to greater fulfillment.
About 16, people took Nxivm courses, paying thousands of dollars apiece. Five women who were charged alongside him have pleaded guilty, leaving Mr. Raniere to stand trial alone. High-profile acolytes of Mr. Raniere included Ms. Mack, one of the women who was charged as a co-defendant and has pleaded guilty, recruited other women into D.

Adultery was considered a greater offense for women than for men, and was punished more harshly. The Southern way of life, and the institutions that defined it—white supremacy, slavery, and the planter aristocracy—were inextricably linked with the sexual regulation of women, especially upper class women; the purity of white women, when contrasted with the sexually lascivious black Jezebel archetype, served to highlight the alleged superiority of white womanhood, and by extension, whiteness Brooks Higginbotham, , p.
Coupled with the notion of elite white female sexual virtue was that of white female vulnerability—the idea that plantation wives and daughters needed to be protected, defended, and sheltered. Framing women in this way served as a means of patriarchal control.
White women whose affairs with slaves were made known faced varying degrees of public humiliation. The resulting child might have been sold into slavery, but infanticide was not an uncommon means of avoiding scandal. Indeed, planter-class women were considered the property of their husbands Hodes, , p. Their freedom and mobility was severely limited; for example, they were generally not allowed to travel without an older male chaperone Clinton, p. Spousal abuse was often considered a legitimate method for men to control their wives Hodes, p.
This is undoubtedly an exaggeration, but the fact remains that upper class white women, whatever luxuries their privileged race and class status afforded them, faced a unique set of limiting patriarchal dicta.
Indeed, in private, many plantation women were unhappy with their lack of freedom and the expectation that they remain dutiful, obedient, pleasant, and cheerful while their husbands had affairs with or raped female slaves. Southern women, who generally married at a younger age than those in the North—not infrequently at fifteen or sixteen years old Clinton, pp.
The life of a plantation mistress was often lonely and sad. The fact that affairs between planter-class women and slaves were relatively uncommon is unsurprising; white women in the South were sexually restricted as compared to their male counterparts, and nineteenth-century contraceptive techniques were not nearly effective or accessible enough to ward off the possibility of pregnancy.
Still, sexual contact between white women and black men did occur in slaveholding societies, more often than perhaps many are aware.
The following is a list of factors that did or may have contributed to the incidence of such relations. First, even though the sexuality of Southern white women was, as stated, heavily regulated, women were not as entirely sexually repressed as one might assume. The dangers of having sexual relations with a black man rather than a white man were enormous in terms of the possibility of producing a mixed-race child.
However, although birth control and abortion methods in the nineteenth-century were not as widely used, safe, or accessible as they are today, they existed. Condoms made out of animal skin, membrane, oiled silk, and rubber were used along with other contraceptive techniques to prevent pregnancy Caron, , p.
For much of the nineteenth-century, abortion was largely unregulated, and it was not limited to poor, immigrant, or black women; upper- and middle-class white women, too, had abortions Caron, pp. This would have allowed white women to have affairs with black men with some level of confidence that they would not be caught. There is also a possibility that affairs between white women and slaves were simply not noticed or recorded as often as they occurred.
While it may have been expected, to a certain extent, that white men would transgress morally e. Because black men like black women were seen as inherently lustful and prone to sexual vice, for an elite woman to have illicit sex with a black rather than a white man might have been a slightly safer bet; it was easier to blame a black man of rape than a white man. Perhaps some of them were simply bored or sexually frustrated It is possible the sexual exploitation of slaves by women who had little power in relation to white men was a source of enjoyment that created a feeling of power.
The resulting child might have been sold into slavery, but infanticide was not an uncommon means of avoiding scandal Hodes, pp. Of course, scandal was not always avoided. This is in keeping with both the standard feminist conceptualization of rape as a tool of patriarchal oppression 3 as well as the traditional un-feminist notion of women as too weak, emotionally and physically, to commit serious crimes, let alone sexual abuse, and the idea that men cannot be raped Bourke, , pp.
However, it is becoming increasingly clear that women, too, are capable of committing sexual offenses and using sex as a means of domination and control Bourke, pp. Indeed, there is considerable documentation of white women coercing black men into having sex. According to Captain Richard J. One former slave told Hinton that his mistress ordered him to sleep with her after her husband died Hodes, p. These are just two examples of the many stories abolitionists like Hinton told to prove the immorality of slaveholding.
They know that the women slaves are subject to their father's authority in all things; and in some cases they exercise the same authority over the men slaves. I have myself seen the master of such a household whose head was bowed down in shame; for it was known in the neighborhood that his daughter had selected one of the meanest slaves on his plantation to be the father of his first grandchild.
She did not make her advances to her equals, nor even to her father's more intelligent servants. She selected the most brutalized, over whom her authority could be exercised with less fear of exposure. Even if the young white woman in this story did not consider herself a sexual assaulter which she probably did not , this is clearly sexually predatory behavior. The kind of relationship described here, which Jacobs suggests was not uncommon, cannot be classified as consensual in any meaningful sense of the word, and in fact constitutes a form of sexual abuse, if not rape.
We thus see that plantation mistresses and elite women, like their male counterparts, were able to sexually control and abuse their slaves. Another way in which white women were able to exercise sexual control over slaves was by threatening to accuse them of rape or attempted rape if they did not agree to sex Hodes, pp.
Instead of attempting to dismantle the white patriarchal hegemony that oppressed both slaves and to a lesser extent white women, predatory white women who coerced slaves into sex through threat of rape opted to perpetuate both white supremacy and patriarchy, by reinforcing paternalistic notions of female sexuality.
Again, planter-class women were considered the property of their husbands and lacked considerable sexual agency relative to men. It is possible the sexual exploitation of slaves by women who had little power in relation to white men was a source of enjoyment that created a feeling of power Bourke, p.
This is not to excuse the actions of sexually abusive white women, nor is it to suggest that female sexual abuse of slave men would not have occurred had women enjoyed a higher status in society. However, just as slave-owning white women often took out their frustrations on slaves through excessive cruelty and violence, they probably also used sex as a means of domination and control in a society in which they were relatively powerless. The issue of upper class white female sex with—and sexual abuse of—male slaves has not received the scholarly attention it deserves.
Although such relations were rarer than sex between male masters and slave women, they were no less complicated, problematic, and potentially exploitative, and no less worthy of scholarly analysis.
