Slavery: What’s it to you? – Rayne’s Version

October 23rd, 2009

Cin worked up a list of questions for herself and then asked me if I’d be willing to answer them also.  I thought, “Why the hell not?” So, here they are:

1 – Does being enslaved set you free or dehumanize you?

A little of both.  I don’t really see the two as mutually exclusive.

2 – Dehumanizing: Is it a goal?  Is it something that is progressively worked towards?

This really depends on the relationship.  In some cases, it’s simply a side effect.

In our relationship, it’s sort of both.  I never would have believed myself animalistic before I was a slave.  Now, I’m occasionally seen acting closer to a cherished dog than a lover.  Slavery has brought something out of me that is very primal in nature.  Whether it’s dehumanization or embracing my humanity, I’m not sure.

3 – Are you part of a “loving” M/s dynamic or not?

Yes, very much so.

4 – Is your slavery a gift or just part of who you are?

Submission is not a gift.  Neither is slavery.  My slavery isn’t just part of who I am.  It defines me.

5 – As a slave, do you feel you do/should have any rights outside of begging release?

My list of rights is very short and can be revoked at any time.  I have the right to His love and affection.  I have the right to His honesty.  I have the right to full disclosure with regard to any outside relationships or sexual encounters.  And I have the right to His control.

I’m more than welcome to beg release if I want.  More likely than not, though, He’d tell me no.  I do not have the right to leave if He chooses not to let me go.  I am property.

Do I feel it should be this way? In all honesty, I feel it should be however it works for us.  If, in the future, we find it more comfortable to give me more rights, He should.  If we find it works better if I have less rights, He should take them away. 

6 – Are there ever things that happen in your dynamic that you consider unfair? Why?

Psh.  All the time.

Why? I dunno… Because He’s the master, I guess.

Or were you asking why I think they’re unfair? That I’d have to answer case-by-case.

7 – Do you consider other slaves your brothers/sisters in slavery?

Good god, no.  Calling another slave my “brother” or “sister” suggests a kinship or familiarity.  I rarely, if ever, get that close to anyone.  I definitely wouldn’t claim to be that close to someone simply because we both call ourselves slaves.

8 – Is LDR or online relationships in the M/s dynamic possible? Why?

Sure, it’s possible.  I mean, I’ve known plenty of master/slave couples that started online and endured the distance.

Is it ideal? Not really.  It’s a pain in the ass and it’s next to impossible to know that all parties are remaining within their roles.

9 – Should slaves have important responsibilities (i.e- working, keeping track of finances, etc.)?

I won’t speak for other slaves, because this really depends on the relationship and the parties involved.  But me? No.  I shouldn’t have a job and I shouldn’t have control of the finances.  It’s been proven time and again that when I have a job, I don’t function nearly as well as a slave.  And Master doesn’t believe a slave should be in charge of something as important as money.

Not because they can’t handle it.  But because a slave is property and owns nothing.  And He feels putting a slave in charge of the purse strings is, in essence, allowing them ownership of them.

10 – Is a submissive personality required to be a slave?

No.  Being owned is required to be a slave.

11 – Has slavery made you co-dependent? How do you feel about it?

I don’t think my codependency is caused by my slavery.  I think it’s a side effect of my laundry list of mental diagnonsense.

12 – Does your slavery and marriage mesh or clash? Why?

My slavery and marriage are one and the same.  We used to think we could keep them separate.  We know better now.

13 – Is your master strict or laid back? Which style do you prefer?

He’s the perfect blend of both.  That’s just the way I like it.  I’m so middle-of-the-road.

14 – Is slavery a role, a status, or both?

Both.

15 – How would you feel about living in a poly situation?

I can’t wait.

16 – How do you feel about your owner having outside relationships?

If we’re talking about Him having a relationship with another woman that I’m not included in, the idea kind of bothers me.  I really don’t think that’ll ever happen, though.  One of the things that interests Him about having a second slave is being able to watch us together.  Can’t do that if He keeps us apart.

17 – What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned so far?

Slavery isn’t fair.

18 – What’s the most valuable asset you give to your owner?

This is a really difficult question for me.

The correct answer is my pussy.  Master absolutely believes slaves are for fucking and hurting, and their most valuable assets are their holes.  But I know for a fact that He wouldn’t own me if He didn’t value my mind.  Stupid women annoy Him to no end.

19 – What are the most notable changes/progression you have made in the last six months?

My problems with intimacy are steadily going away and I’ve been doing much better about not popping off at the mouth.

20 – Where do you see yourself six months from now?

Hopefully out of Schenectady.  But that’s not what you’re asking, huh? Lol.

I dunno.  I hope to have met the goals I have listed in my bio and to be working on new ones.  But that sarcasm thing… That’s proving to be damned difficult.

    Rayne,

    “I feel it should be however it works for us.” God, what an insight. I’m not being facicious either. So many people try to keep up with the Joneses when they should just be doing what is them. Now, if only those people over on fetlife would realize this…

    PS Hey, you could move to Spokane…;)

    @dweaver999 You know, it’s a lesson I’m just barely coming to terms with. I have a pretty difficult time with peer pressure. It’s not all that hard, if you’re a good talker, to convince me that I’m wrong about something.

    Impressionable. That’s the polite way of saying it. Gullible. That’s the truth of it. Lol.

    It’s probably a product of moving around so often growing up and having 3.5 seconds to convince the entire student body and neighborhood clique that I was too cool for school or face being the outcast for four years.

    And as for Spokane… So there’s this chick I really, really don’t like. She lives out there and frequents the clubs out there. If I moved out there, it would be required that we go to the clubs cause one of our buds lives out there and goes. There’s no way in hell, if I meet this chick face to face, she’s not getting hit. So… We’ll move to Los Angeles and visit… Kay? Lol.

    Rayne,

    Sure, and I can reciprocate and visit you guys. Actually, unless He has a great job here already, I wouldn’t inflict Spokane on anyone I care about. Outside the city is okay, but in it, political drama up the ying yang. We actully had a city council member sue the city council to stop something he voted _for_. Maybe it’s the water (which doesn’t get floridated because too many reisdents believe the pseudo-science alarmists).

    @dweaver999 Sounds like Schenectady! Well, minus the water thing.
