LibrarySlave Positions


We have been asked often to do an article about slave positions. To be honest, we hesitated for a long time to publish such an article, because there is nothing like written slave positions.
For this reason we decided to provide a description of some basic positions which are commonly used and to write a few things about the their background. Of course, the presented positions are only samples and every couple develops their own style and variations. Some of the elements of the shown positions can of course be combined and varied. The shown positions are not a "Must", but an interesting addition to a D/s play and can also be a good start for a D/s play and its atmosphere.

All positions are constructed to work against the natural body adjustment. They force the person to fully concentrate on their position and body. The intention is to increase the attention as well as the concentration. They also violate the persons instinctive self protection by exposing the body and its vulnerable regions. By this the feeling of being helpless and being at someone's mercy is emphasized.

Position 3: Kneeling (Waiting Position)
The slave kneels with spread legs, the hands rest on the thighs, palms up. This position shows the will to serve and the position of the hands with palms up also signals that their is no aggression (psychological effect)

Position 4 Position 4: kneeling face down (Submission)
The arms are spread forward or folded on the back. The neck is exposed and with that the person shows complete submission.


Position 5 Position 5: On All Fours (as furniture, chair, table, doggy-style)
This position has certain animalistic aspects as well as the aspect of humiliation. If you use your slave as a chair, make sure that you don't put too much pressure on his spine. Try to sit as close to his butt as possible.

Position 6: Belly
The arms are either spread in a 90 degree angle (butterfly) or spread forward at each side of the head. The legs are slightly spread and can be pulled a little towards the body in order to lift the back a little.

Position 7 Position 7: Bend Down (Punishment / Inspection Position)
The backside is very much exposed and with that wonderfully positioned for a spanking or flogging. The danger of hurting the kidneys is very much reduced. Just make sure your strikes come from the side rather than from the top. This position also very useful for "inspections". But it is quite unstable, so be careful when using it for punishment.

Position 8: Backside / Presentation
The hands are positioned around the ankles and spread the legs a little. In this position the genital area is very exposed and unprotected.
