Consensual nonconsent


Consensual nonconsent

Consensual non-consent refers to the type of agreement made in a relationship based on dominance and submission between the dominant and submissive party, stipulating that the submissive has consented to the dominant's decisions and puts him/herself in the care of the dominant. The submissive party in these types of relationships typically becomes a slave, relinquishing personal freedoms and rights to the dominant's discretion. Note that under most jurisdictions, legal consent may not create a defense to liability for any injuries caused and that, for these purposes, non-physical injuries may be included in the definition of grievous bodily harm.
