Sizemore counters, "Suggestions can make her inclined to do things... lead recklessly, disobey orders. She provides her own reasons for these choices." And two panels later, he calls it rationalization.
That scene is just as corrupted by Suggestion as anything else. The Suggestion is making her rationalize her willing participation in the activities, using a rationalization. Jillian, being under the influence of a spell that helped her participate in something she may not have done without the spell, is forced by the spell to find a reason to continue to enjoy the thought of participating.
Jillian is not an unbiased observer of her spell-addled self, and so is not a valid witness to what she would otherwise have chosen to do.
All this does is say that my evidence is not 100% fool proof. Which is fine; I have never been trying to claim a certainty on my interpretation of this, just the level of most probable situation. I've stated several times that there are facts that would disprove my interpretation, if they emerge. However, you seem to be confused into thinking that my evidence being weakened constitutes evidence of your own. You have yet to provide any that Jillian was influenced by the suggestion spell for that encounter. You have conjecture, and a reasonable case that we can't 100% trust the evidence we have to be definitive. But that is all I see. Given that, we have to go with the interpretation that actually has some evidence supporting it. Sure, we keep our eyes open for something new; but until the something new shows up, we have to stick with the best explanation for all the facts.
Just to humor me, is there a single piece of evidence you could have appear in the comic, aside from word of god, that would make you abandon your interpretation?

Jillian didn't choose to be a victim of the Suggestion spell. Very different situation. Jillian didn't choose to lower her roadblocks, they were lowered for her by someone else.
Aside from the massive difference between a roofie and what Wanda did in terms of potency... This single instance is part of a long term relationship between two people where one controlling the other is a standard part of their relationship (which I have been told is the core of what the appeal for most BDSM is). We don't know how far Jillian has given consent for Wanda to be dominating in session. We know she was pissed at what the suggestion spell did out of session; but she has not once given an indication that she sees the spell being cast on her as being drugged for the sex. I mean hell, she was hanging from a dungeon wall as a POW, a circumstance that it appears she routinely tried to create (given how often she is captured). Compare that level of control to the suggestion spell; I would say hanging from the prison wall is about 10-15x the bigger consent issue.
But all indications are that Jillian was voluntarily putting herself in that position. So the fact that she doesn't consider the suggestion spell a problem (for the session, not the out of session effects)? not hard to believe. Especially when there is 0 evidence to the contrary, outside of conjecture on how that evidence could still emerge.
