Corporal Punishment Protocol
‘One stroke, Mistress Owner. Thank you, Mistress Owner for correcting this inferior male. Please, Mistress Owner, may your slave have another stroke of your cane?”
Mistress Rogers cane had yet to strike. Slave Alex had yet to speak those words. He would thank his Mistress Owner fifty times that night.
Strict verbal protocol is something that Mistress Rogers always demands of her slave men. Stilted may seem off-putting. Repetition naturalizes slave speech.
Alex is forbidden to use her name. Each sentence either begins or concludes with “Mistress Owner.”
Nor can he use masculine pronouns. Mistress Rogers considered ordering him to call himself ‘it.’ A common practice. She rejected the option for aesthetic reasons.
He continually restates his inferiority and status chattel status. Sound male psychology.
Alex thanks her for everything. Even his punishment. Gratitude is as one with reverence. Obedience is not enough. A proper male worships his Mistress Owner.
When Alex brings her a cup of coffee, he says:
“Thank you, Mistress Owner.”
He is grateful for his slavery. Continual thankfulness demonstrates gratitude.
At the beginning of each day Alex repeats his vows:
Mistress Rogers is my Owner, I shall obey
She leads me to fulfill Her will
She makes me understand my male inferiority
She accepts my submission
All that I do will be in Her divine name
Though I am unworthy
And can never be worthy
Mistress’ rod and whip will teach me
She teaches me my place with pain
Her perfection and flawlessness humble me
Her rules I will follow all of my life
Mistress Rogers’ verbal protocols are tools. Alex continually reminds himself of his status. He is property. He can never forget this.
The words never grow stale. He thrills to speak of his slavery. In it he has found the destiny he once confusedly sought for.
