Consensual Violence and the Politics of Injury

(p.4) Chapter 1 Consensual Violence and the Politics of Injury
Consensual Violence

This chapter begins by summarizing the preceding Preamble. The chokehold began with no context, meaning of significance. For most readers, the initial impression is likely objectionable, presuming the chokehold causes pain and injury and is therefore unwanted. However, when context is added, the chokehold is imbued with meaning. The chokehold in the sports case appears different than the BDSM scenario. Indeed, they are treated differently under criminal law. This chapter introduces the central themes of the book, including the creation of rules and norms around consent, the body, and legal consciousness.

Keywords:   consent, criminal law, violence, sex, sports, sociolegal, legal consciousness, the body
