      Horrify history of Sex Farms During Slavery

      Horrify history of Sex Farms During Slavery. Enslaved blacks were sexually exploited and abused by their white masters.

      Time and time again, the horrifying experiences of enslaved Africans working on plantations in the Americas and other parts of the world are told over and over. 
      During the slave trade, which lasted for well over 400 years, Africans were captured and chained down, forced onto ships and taken into new lands against their will. Through their harrowing experiences on the ships, many of the enslaved Africans died before reaching their new
      homes. For the many who survived, it was the beginning of sleepless nights, several hours of work on plantations on empty stomachs and the constant reminder that in their new lives they were nothing but a commodity to their owners. 

      To inform people about the black experience during the slavery years, much research has been done to help bring to light the accounts. Revelations on how men & women were used as sex toys, forced to breastfeed white babies as well as experiences of slaves both on ships 
      and in the fields just to mention a few have all been brought to light. However, it seems that much emphasis is either on the general enslavement or the experiences of women during slavery.
      Much focus has drifted away from the experiences of the enslaved who aside from the harsh working hours had horrifying experiences of their own. 
      Shockingly, the raping of enslaved men was as prevalent as the raping of enslaved women, however, the issue of enslaved men as rape victims has been mainly undiscovered due to the fact that men were generally shy to voice out that they had been raped by male

      merchants or their owners. Aside from being shy, the issue of enslaved men being raped was not believable because many of the men that raped them were married or had several girlfriends. 
      There was also no physical evidence to show that they were actually being raped as they did not get pregnant or show physical hurt. The raping of enslaved men was very common in the southern U.S. and Cuba where it was a huge part of the slave system by the Spanish 
      Many enslaved men were raped on ships and at secret sex farms and season plantations for homosexual slave owners which were very popular in the Caribbean. They were also killed if they rebelled.
      The rape of enslaved men was an open secret for several years during the slave trade days. Enslaved men were also forced to have sex with their master’s wives when masters were away. Many of these white mistresses used their African male slaves who exhibited great 
      physique and strength. In general, the rape of enslaved men was overlooked because the issue of rape became very gender-biased 
      Enslaved women were subjected to many sexual improprieties. Among them were violations by their masters and their sons, forced matings and arranged marriages.
      Historian E. Franklin Frazier said stockmen were weighed and tested before being put into a room with young women to mate for the purpose of bearing children. 

      By the end of the 18th century, the breeding of slaves was a common practice. Laws were changed so the public could view slaves as “things” instead of people so the owner could do with them as he wished. Slave owners even began believing that slavery was grounded in the Bible.
      American slaves in 1860 were worth $4 billion, which was far more than the $228M worth of gold and silver circulating back then. Even the value of southern farmland — $1.92B -did not amount to the worth of slaves. So for the owners, their slaves were worth everything to them. 
      The mortality rate among slaves was very high. So their owners would often encourage or force them to have children. Even at the age of 13, females were expected to begin having children to replenish the slave stock 
      They were expected to have four or five children by the age of 20. They were often encouraged by their owners to do this with the promise of freedom
      An enslaved female who did not cooperate with their owners to bear children for them would be subjected to many and various punishments, both mental and physical. 
      In some instances, the females who bore children for their owners were given gifts, including extra clothing, the withdrawal of any harsh treatment and sometimes, if their “quota” was met,” freedom.
      Women who did not or could not bear children would not be given any breaks or rewards that were given to mothers, and they would do the same work on the level of men 
      If a woman was deemed infertile, she would sometimes be separated from her family. And owners would sometimes split up married couples and require them to choose new partners.
      Male slaves at the age of 15 were inspected to see if they could breed well. If it was deemed that they could not, their testicles would be castrated. Over the course of five years, each young male was expected to get at least 12 female slaves pregnant.
      According to the Slave Narratives, a male slave named Burt was said to have fathered over 200 children.

      To provide entertainment for his friends, the plantation owner would sometimes arrange orgies among the male and female slaves. His friends would be allowed to join in them

      Many white supremacists, wealthy merchants and aristocrats often used enslaved men as a form of sexual entertainment. Enslaved men were often made to line up naked for their sexual organs to be scrutinised, laughed at and discussed. 

      They were also made to dance naked. In extreme cases, an enslaved man was made to forcefully have sex with an enslaved virgin to entertain the white viewers
      Plantation owners often take the “pretty” female slaves & put them to work in the household. If the owner showed affection or gave favours to the pretty girl, his wife would subject her to torture. If the pretty slave bore a child, the owner’s wife would behead that child. 
      A slave wife could never be faithful to her husband, as most owners demanded she has affairs with other men. Nor was she allowed to remain pure or virtuous.
      Some male slaves were purchased by their owners solely by the size of their penis. And the black men were often raped by their gay slave owners. This process was called “breaking the buck.”
      Not all owners abandoned the children they fathered with female slaves. Some would provide them with education and money. And some owners even set free their mistresses and mixed-race children
