Can You Sell Yourself Into Slavery?

A Financial Slave Sues His Dominatrix and Prompts the Question

In Orlando, Florida a financial slave has filed suit claiming that his dominatrix abused their
professional relationship. The news story is here.
The 68 year old plaintiff claims that his dominatrix took unfair advantage of his diminished
mental capacity during the four years of their relationship while also asserting that financial
slavery services by such BDSM professionals are not illegal. The plaintiff thus ignores the
13th Amendment to the United States Constitution which specifically declares that:
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.
If the plaintiff was incapable of intelligently and knowingly consenting to submit to such
servitude as he claims, then of course his financial slavery would quite literally seem to be
illegal. That only begs the question: Can anyone not suffering a materially diminished mental
capacity voluntarily and intelligently seek out and contractually submit to such slavery or
voluntary servitude? If so, to what extent can a mature and otherwise competent adult enter
into an enforceable contract of voluntary servitude, equivalent to slavery, without violating the
13th Amendment prohibition?
