This chapter asks whether we should accept the principle volenti non fit injuria (to one who consents no wrong is done). It considers the way in which the Model Penal Code treats the defense of consent and whether violations of dignity (as contrasted with physical harm) should be regarded as harms to which one cannot consent.
