General Slave's Terms
the art of sensual submissiveness
These are some of the Terms you will encounter in your slave's life. I do not use most of them, as each Master has his own defintions and own terms. You are not compelled to study them. I am publishing them for your information and general education as you might one day meet a Master who will interrogate you using one of these Terms. And should you be able to impress him, he might accept you as his sub.
As I dot use most of them, these Terms will not be reviewed during your Training, unless special agreement is made. You can find My Terms in clicking here. These you must know. Should some of the Terms in these pages are commonly used by Myself or other experienced Masters (or Mistresses), they will be printed in green.
ed by different names becuase of where they originate from on Gor or what type of slave they are. There are many more types of slaves but, for The Hall, here is the full list. I will expect you to study these as each day in training we will have trivia to see how much you have learned since the previous session.

In the 90's during the Internet revolution all kinky people were establishing arguments to label their kinks. After months of arguments the term BDSM was born. Most of the kinky people were happy after the term was issued. BDSM combines Bondage and Discipline (BD), Dominance and Submission (DS) and Sadomasochism (SM.)

Mentoring: Mentoring is often confused with training - primarily by sleazy Doms claiming to be mentors. An all-too-often occurrence is that the sleazy-Dom uses the "mentoring" relationship to gain trust, and then exploits the trust by trying to tryst. This gives mentoring a bad name.
While both mentoring and training involve the transfer of knowledge, there are several differences.
First, training almost always involves direct physical contact, often of an erotic nature.
Mentoring may never require physical contact, and is not done for erotic gratification. The non-erotic nature of mentoring is the key difference between mentoring and training.
Mentoring allows singles to explore without the pressure of actually "doing", and allows people in relationships to explore issues with someone other than their partner.
Mentoring presupposes a long-term relationship. There is no such thing as a twenty-minute mentor. Training can be for a single "scene", or even a phone or cyber hot chat. A mentor makes a commitment to be "there" for questions, answers, issues and long discussions over months or years.
Finally, because mentoring does not require a physical, intimate relationship, it can take place regardless of whether the participants are male, female, top, bottom, Dom, sub, or het, gay, or hermaphrodites.
What happens to subbies when they behave badly.
The term punishment is often used to describe recreational spankings, floggings, etc. I use it to mean negative stimulus (or stimuli) the submissive must endure as a consequence of her behavior.
(Note that I only punish misbehaviors, not "bad thoughts" or "bad feelings". When an inexperienced Master punishes for "thoughts and feelings", he is forcing his sub to be emotionally dishonest with him. Though "mind control" can be a tempting fantasy, it is not a suitable basis for a D/s relationship).
A good punishment acts as a deterrent while instructing and motivating. Therefore, recreational spankings can hardly be considered punishment. Many subs enjoy a good spanking, and a masochistic sub can enjoy floggings, whippings, and more. However, the same amount of physical sensation can be applied with different attitudes and techniques by experienced Masters to change a delightful erotic experience into something that even the masochistic the submissive does not like at all.
SAM: A popular acronym for a "Smart Assed Masochist". Refers to subs who enjoy spankings just a wee bit more than they enjoy serving. Similar to a Brat in that the style frequently pushes the Dom's boundaries, rules and limits.But the diffedrence is in that the purpose of the pushing is intentional to get a well deserved session of corporal attention (typically a spanking).
Slave: A device you screw on the bed to get your housework done.
(a) Snot Nosed Egotistical Rude Teen.
(b) Sadomasochistic Nerd and Enemy of Real Timers
(c) Sub Normal Education Requires Training
See also: HNG.
(a) A measure of "how submissive" someone is.
(b) Something on which you weigh your submissive. If you don't have a regular scale handy, other kinds of scales can be used. One example is the "food scale": what she eats to determines her size/desireability:
Carrots and lettuce:
she's too thin.
(a) What a submissive gets when she decides she's had enough and move out into her own apartment.
(b) A very special feeling some subs achieve. Some believe that sub space is a form of "endorphin high" that comes from extensive, well performed BDSM play, as a result of the physical stimuli (pain/pleasure) the submissive has received. Others view it as a feeling of extreme connection between the sub and her Dom.
(c) A medium used to transmit radio waves through the galactic voids on old science fiction TV shows and movies.
(a) A convenient excuse for thwapping someone.
(b) A way for an otherwise unsuccessful Dominant to get laid (as in "Yeah, baby, I'm gonna teach ya, oh yeah, yer gonna learn, uh-huh, yeah, this is training, yeah, you'll be really trained now, just lay back and enjoy it, yeah, just tell me how you like it, darlin', that's the way it's comin' at ya, oh yeah, you'll be trained now... ooh yeah....")
(c) In My context: Teaching or instruction in the how to's of D/s, BD, or S/M. Materials covered and time frame are agreed on in advance. More than simply "demonstrating" technique, a "trainee" should be gaining insight and understanding regarding the practical and emotional issues surrounding the topic at hand.
