Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

I am certain there are similar laws in other countries around the world. Basically, this legislature states that slave or involuntary servitude is outlawed. Of course, voluntary servitude is what is acceptable. And that is what the M/s relationship is all about. It is a voluntary exchange of power from a slave to her Master. The basis of the M/s lifestyle is voluntary.

This comes into effect not only in the submission but also in the ending. It is illegal to hold an individual involuntarily. One cannot force one to serve Him and still be in compliance with the law. A Master must release a slave if it is what she truly desires. Any act preventing that is considered unaceptable. A slave consents to the relationship.

This is something to remember throughout the interaction with Your slave. I have seen to often where people try to control through force and fear. This results in an eventual rejecting of the Master. As a result, He tries harder to control her while keeping her under His power. This is not how a Master is to operate. A true Master will have control of His slave psychologically. As a result, if she is handled properly, she will crave her Master more. The exact opposite happens. A slave in this situation keeps volunteering her servitude to her Master.

It is worthy to remember this basic fact of reality. Some seem to get disconnected while allowing their egos to push them further into delusion. There is a saying about power going to one’s head. An inexperienced Master is susceptible to falling prey to this. This is the point that the situation turns to one of abuse. Try to be mindful of what O/our responsibilities are and what this lifestyle is all about.

Part of a Master’s responsibility to a slave is to find her limits. Also, once those limits are found, a good will Master will assist her is surpassing those limits. The main focus for a slave is growth. If a slave is growing, she is increasing to value. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true.

When people typically think of limits, the first ideas that come to mind are either sexually or in terms of pain. Often these are the initial areas that a Master will concentrate upon. Expanding a slave sexually to be able to serve Him is important. Also, some slaves reject the idea of pain only to find later that they really enjoyed it. Many are surprised at how much they can endure while coming to like the sensations felt. Of course, there are some who cannot tolerate much. Even the most experienced Master finds that there are limits to each slave that cannot be overcome. To force past it is abuse in my opinion. One wants to coax a slave to go beyond what she can initially take.

Leaving the sexual aspect of the lifestyle aside, there are other limits which slaves enter the relationship with. Many seem to have esteem issues that limit what they will undertake. An effective Master will see what a slave is capable of. Is she only able to handle household chores? What about her abilities in her profession? Is that something a Master can use to His benefit? Most are natural caretakers. Is this something that will help with a family situation? The bottom line is that a Master needs to look at all that a slave does and try to enlarge her capabilities. The starting point for me always seems to be in the area of self-confidence. As this grows, so does her ability to perform.

One final thought, it is important for a Master to understand when a limit was reached. Many will try to force past it. Again, I believe this to be abuse. A slave cannot perform every task assigned to her regardless of her desire. There are some things which are beyond her abilities. For example, I could beat a slave daily in an effort to get her to dunk a basketball. If she is not able to do it, added motivation will not enhance her ability to perform. By the way, I cannot dunk on either so it is a limitation that this One has also.

Find the limits and try to go beyond them. Yet remember, we want to avoid long-term harm by damaging our slaves mentally. If there is a limit which cannot be overcome, pull back.
