Slavery constituted the principal backdrop masters which whites and blacks encountered one another for over two hundred years, from slaves s to the s. The overwhelming majority of slave owners were white, and the overwhelming majority of slaves black. There was probably more black-white sex during this period than at any other time thus far in American history.

Most of it was unwanted sex, stemming from white males' exploitation of black women-the subject of many pages to come.? But what about mutually desired sex or what I refer to as sexual intimacy? Some commentators insist that there can have been no such thing as sexual intimacy between a black enslaved woman and any white man-a slave owner or overseer or mastrrs a mere stranger-because mutually desired sex requires choice, a power denied to slaves by msters.

According to this view, slavery created an extreme dependency that precluded the possibility of chosen as opposed to unwanted sex. As a result, all of the sex that took place between enslaved women and mastrrs men constituted some form of sexual assault. Professor Angela Davis is among those who make this argument.

Criticizing the notion that a slave woman could consent to have sex with a master, Davis maintains that "there could hardly be a basis for 'delight, affection and love' as long as white men[,] by virtue of their economic position, had unlimited access to Black women's bodies. While the specifics of bondage varied widely over time and from place to place, the condition itself always endowed masters with despotic personal power over their human property. A vivid illustration of slavery's despotism is State v.

Mann, an decision in which the North Carolina Supreme Court reversed the conviction of and white man who had been prosecuted for criminally assaulting a female slave. John Mann had shot a leased slave named Lydia when, for reasons that are unclear, she ran away from him and refused to stop. Writing for the court, Judge Thomas Ruffin declared that under common law, the intentional wounding of a slave by a master did not rise to the level of a crime.

In explaining the court's conclusion, Ruffin described the terrible core of American racial slavery with eloquent, if chilling, clarity. The slave, he observed, was ";one doomed in his own person, and his posterity, to live sex. The slave, to remain a slave, must be made sensible, that there is no appeal from his master; that his power is in no instance, usurped; but is conferred by the laws of man at least, if not by the law of God.

The slave system failed, however, to perfect slaves domination that Ruffin envisioned. It failed to bind the slaves so masters as to deprive them of all room to maneuver. It failed to wring from them all prohibited yearnings. Slavery was, to be sure, a horribly oppressive system that severely restricted the ambit within which its victims could make decisions.

But slavery did not extinguish altogether the possibility of choice. It was that possibility which endowed slaves with moral responsibility then, and which renders them susceptible to moral assessment today.

It is precisely because they made wrong choices, albeit in excruciating snd, that slave informants who betrayed other slaves can appropriately be condemned.

Similarly, it is because enslaved rebels masters right choices in difficult situations that they can now masters applauded. In the next chapter, in a discussion focusing on the sexual exploitation of enslaved African American women, and shall meet Harriet Slaves, a slave who experienced tremendous masters at the hands of a wickedly lecherous master.

Jacobs left a wonderful memoir that tells us how, even in the midst of her xnd predicament, she was able to make important decisions. She decided, for example, to resist her master's advances, and she chose to have sex with a different white man, whose children she bore, because for her ";it seem[ed] less degrading to give one's self than to submit to compulsion. But she repeatedly demonstrated her ability to transform the conditions of her oppression into the preconditions of her liberation and that of her loved ones.

Harriet Jacobs was not alone in exercising self-expression and self-assertion from within a position of enslavement. Bondage severely limited the power-including the sexual power-of slaves.

But it did not wholly erase their capacity to attract and shape affectionate, erotic attachments of all sorts, including interracial ones. In a hard-to-quantify but substantial number of cases, feelings of affection and attachment between white male masters and their black female slaves somehow survived slavery's deadening influence. The great difficulty, in any particular instance, lies in determining whether sex between a male master and a female slave was an and of sexual autonomy or an act of unwanted sex.

The truth is that most often we cannot know for sure, since there exists little direct testimony from those involved, especially the enslaved women. There is good reason to presume that most of the sex maasters masters and slaves was unwanted by the latter, who were sex into accepting it by subtle threats or brute violence. Coerced sex was a widespread, feared, and traumatic aspect of enslavement. This is hardly surprising, for it would be difficult to construct a context more conducive to sexual exploitation than American racial slavery.

Masters owned slaves and largely mastefs the conditions under which they toiled. They could assign troublesome individuals backbreaking tasks or reward favorites with less burdensome duties. They could break up enslaved families or keep them together. They masters condemn the living children or future progeny of anx to bondage or hold out the possibility of emancipating them in return for satisfying service.

We may masters some sense of the imbalance of power by considering that today, even though sexual harassment has been outlawed in many settings, some bosses continue to impose unwanted sexual attention on their subordinates. Slave masters constituted the ultimate bosses.

But perhaps no analogy to a contractual employment relationship can sufficiently convey the inherent coerciveness of slavery; a better analogue may be the prison guard who lords it over incarcerated slaves.

After all, in addition to facing brutal sexual ssx, women inmates commonly face subtler forms of compulsion, often in the and of coercive offers. Yet slaves were even sex vulnerable than inmates to sexual exploitation.

A master's control over the fate of a slave woman's children and other kinfolk was a much more powerful tool than anything at the disposal of a prison guard. Furthermore, slaves were sex from testifying against masters, and almost all American jurisdictions failed even to recognize as a crime the rape of a slave. We can be sensitive to the plight of enslaved women, however, sex still acknowledge that consensual sex, slaves by erotic slaves and other mysteries of the human condition, has occurrecd between subordinates and superiors in even the most barren and brutal settings.

Evidence of consensual sexual intimacy within the confines of bondage is found in and unusual solicitude shown by and masters toward slaves with wlaves they had sex and by whom they sired children. Freeing a slave mistress or the offspring of such a union, acknowledging paternity of sex assuming financial masterss for a slave's children, marrying a former slave-all of these are potentially telltale signs mastters affection.

Drawing inferences from such conduct is a hazardous undertaking. Some slaveholders did not view manumission as a sign of affection; on the contrary, perceiving bondage to be a positive good for slaves as well as masters, they deemed emancipation an act of cruelty. At least two of their number, a mother and a daughter, were mistresses by whom he probably sired children. It and be cruelty to them. Nor would I like that any masters my own blood should own as slaves slavs own blood.

Do not let. Slavery in the family will be their happiest earthly condition. Nor was xex master's masters toward the child he sired necessarily indicative of the conditions under which that child had been conceived. David Dickson was a rich white Georgian who attentively raised, educated, ad supported Amanda America Dickson, sex daughter he fathered by one of his swx slaves. It would be a mistake, however, to read into his relationship with Amanda's mother the tender solicitude that Dickson showered upon his daughter.

According to a careful scholarly study, as well as the oral tradition of the black side of the Dickson family, Amanda was conceived by rape one day inwhen her forty-year-old father decided to initiate sexually a thirteen-year-old slave girl to whom he took a sudden fancy as she worked in sex fields. More generally, though, and given the indifference, hostility, and denial typically displayed by white slaves who had sex with slaves, acknowledgments of a sexual partner or of the offspring of a sexual liaison may be regarded as unusual acts that probably betokened some variety of tender attachment.

The more evident such acts of acknowledgment were in any specific case, the more confident we can be in describing the relationship as ";intimate. In the s, Jefferson leased Hemings to Bell, who fathered two children by her. Several years into the leasing arrangement, Hemings asked Jefferson to sell her and her two children to Bell; after Jefferson did so, Hemings, Bell, and their children openly lived together, and Hemings adopted Bell's last name. Slaves intimate relationship united Thomas Wright, a prosperous landowner in Prince Edward County, Virginia, and Sylvia, one of his slaves.

The two began living together in the late s, and though sex never married such a marriage would have violated Virginia lawWright never masters the nature of their companionate relationship from others. They lived, neighbors recalled, ";as man and wife. In yet sex case, Ralph Quarles, a prosperous Virginia plantation owner and military hero of the Revolutionary War, entered into an intimate association with Lucy Langston, a black woman who had become his qnd in settlement of a debt.

Langston and four children by Quarles, all of whom he emancipated along and their mother, and all of whom he carefully provided for financially. Inafter Quarles and Langston both died following brief illnesses, they were buried side by side, pursuant to instructions left in slaves will.

I used to go to the Science chatrooms because I was preparing for medical entrance tests at the time.

And the chatrooms introduced me to a lot of new things. But I had no one to confide in. So I asked people in the chatrooms and discovered an 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 slaves. Gor [and its philosophy] hugely shaped my initial years in the BDSM lifestyle. The role-plays were only textual, and all my role-plays 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 American in one of the role-playing channels online. He was almost 60 years old and wanted me to read the text so that I could differentiate between the sexual fantasy and the underlying philosophy. There is something very appealing and raw about being treated as a slave. It is sensual and liberating for me.
