Jury hears testimony about lifestyle that involves bondage and infliction of pain during sex

A key section reads: "By signing this slavery contract, it is agreed that slave gives up all rights to her own person in every manner, and that Master takes entire possession of slave as property.” Another section requires the slave to please the master, including sexually, because she now exists solely for the master's pleasure.

Wise's defense attorney also is putting on evidence about the lifestyle in an attempt to explain away Larsen's injuries. She calls herself Gina.

"The lifestyle has a lot to do with why we're here,” defense attorney Steve Parker said in his opening statement. "The submissive types like Gina enjoy being beaten. It's a hard concept to understand. They call it 'play.'”

Parker wanted to show jurors a few photos of Larsen half nude and bound. District Judge Ray Elliott refused, ruling that evidence wasn't relative.

Larsen is married and has three children in Utah. She said she met Wise through the social networking website fetlife.com and first moved in with him last November. She said she no longer believes he was cheating on her in the club parking lot.

She said she has been in the BDSM lifestyle for five years and has had other relationships. She said her father has told her she is going to hell.

She said Wise is a great boyfriend.

"It takes a lot of trust to completely give yourself to somebody,” she told jurors. "Part of the joy I get is giving up that control.”

She said her choice of lifestyle is not just physical, but emotional, too. "The way a master takes care of a slave is incredibly amazing,” she said.

She said most people would consider their sex play abusive but explained, "That's the thing. I get off on the pain. I enjoy it.”

She defended the lifestyle, saying, "What woman out there does not fantasize about being tied up?”
