Kajira Positions and Commands.
A well trained kajira is expected to know a varity of slave positions and be able respond to a series of cammon commands.There is some erroneous information online concerning Gorean positions and commands as depicted in the novels.Positions such as kar-ta and sula-ki are never explicitly named in the novels.Their names have been created by others online to describe certain matters mentioned in the novels but never formally named.Other such positions have been created out of nothing and have no basis in the novels.This work shall show a number of named positions that exist in the novels and describe some unnamed positions and their uses.Other positions and commands do exist.The following is not an inclusive list.
Kneeling: The primary position for all slaves is kneeling.The Gorean word for kneel may be nadu.In the books is only nadu is only used as a specfic command that will be further on this scroll.All woman,free and slave,kneel when sitting.Woman who dare to sit cross legged,like men,are seen as insolent and insulting.Slaves are not permitted generally to sit in chairs and could even be whipped or slain for daring to sit in one.Kajirea must commonly kneel when entering her owners presence,if her owner is present nearby,or in the presence of any other free person.Kneeling though is a position that can be assumed easily and beautifully.A kajira can also rise from the kneeling position with beauty and grace.Kneeling is seen as a sign of respect,expressing the submission of a slave.In kneeling,all woman,free and slave, are expected to carry themselves well.Their backs should be straight,their chin high and they should be prperly poised.Woman do not slouch in such a position.
When a girl kneels,it is customary for her to remain a few feet away from her owner.This distance symbolizes,along with the difference in height between a standing owner and kneeling kajira,the inferiority and lowly status of the slave.It also puts the slave in a position where she can be readily viewed.In addition,it puts enough space between the slave and master so that if the master desires to ravish the kajira,such desire will require an active decision to bridge that distance toward the girl.Thus,his desire will not be reflexivery triggered.If a girl was to purposefully kneel very close to her master,this would be an indication of her desire to be ravished,hoping her master will act on his urges without consideration.
The position of a woman,s knees when kneeling is very important.Free woman will Always keep their knees tightly closed,thus being modest.Tower and house slaves also commonly do the same.Tower and house slaves are generally assigned domestic duties but there are times when they might also serve a master,s pleasure.At those times,they might kneel with their knees open if commanded to do so.Pleasure slaves,and similar kajirae,generally Always keep their knees wide open while kneeling.They are bereft of modesty and open for all to see.In general though,even if a girl is kneeling with her knees open,you are most likely only to see some pubic hair.Such a position is not as revealing as many would think.
The position of one,s hand while kneeling is also inportant.Free woman will rest their hands on their thighs,their palms face down.Tower and house slaves will keep their hands in front of them,usually crossed if not otherwise occupied.Pleasure slaves rest their hands on their thighs,eiter palm up or down,though in some cities they will keep their hands crossed behind them.The palms of the hands,when facing upwards,is a way of signaling a girls need,helplessness,and desire to pleasure.It is a silent signal of a girl,s desire for her master.
Position: is a comman command that is given when the kajira is expected to assume the cammon kneeling position for her slave type.Thus,tower and house slaves will assume a specific position that is different from the position assumed by the pleasure slave.Sometimes,a master may wish his kajira to assume a different position than her type and he will then specifically tell her which position to assume.This is where a tower of house slave might be ordered to kneel in the position of the pleasure slave.A position may also be commanded as part of a girl,s discipline.If this is so,the girl must remain very rigid in her position.If it was not ordered of discipline,a kajira has much more leeway.Her body is permitted to move some,as allowing her to rise a bit on her heels,turn her head or such.The key remains that the girl should be appealing in her movements.
Most often in these postions,the kajira keeps her head raised.This will depends greatly on the specfic discipline the kajira is undergoing and the preferences of her master.By keeping her head up,this will eliminate the need to command her to raise it.It also shows the facial beauty of the slave.In addition,the slave can see who is in the room and is able to better Judge the moods,needs and desire of her master or any other free person in the room.She can more pleasing if she is fully aware of her surroundings.A kajira may not break any of these positions until she receives explicit permission to do so.
Nadu: might be the general Gorean word for kneel.But,each time a girl is commanded to nadu,in the books she assumes the position of the pleasure slave.The slave kneels back on her heels,resting her hands on her thighs.She maintains excellent posture with her back straight,her head up,and her breasts thrust forward.Her knees are widely spread.Thus nadu may only refer to the pleasure slave position though the root word may derive from the Gorean word for kneel.If a tower or house slave had been commanded to nadu,and assumedthe closed knee position,then it would be easy to see that nadu simply means kneel but without such a reference,we can only speculate.You will see many web sites state that nadu means kneel,but that is not necessarily accurate.
Sula: is another undefined Gorean word that might possible mean back or prone.It was Always used in the books as a command to a kajira.The kajira would lie on her back with her hands at her sides,palms up.Her legs would be spread wide apart.In this position,a kajira is ready for her masters pleasure.
Bara: is another undefined Gorean word that might possibly mean belly.It was Always used in the books as a command to a kajira.The kajira would lie on her stomach,her head to the left,with her wrists crossed behind her and her ankles similarly crossed.Thus,the kajira would be ready to be bound by her master.This position is also known as the standard binding position.Bara should not be confused with the command belly,which has a much different meaning,which will be discussed later in this scroll.
Kar-ta: this is a position to asked permission to enter a room by her master.The second form also differs in a few ways than the kar-ta position.In the second form, a kajira begin in the kneeling position.You then lower your head to the floor and place the palms of your hands on the floor and place the palms of your hand on the floor.You then raise your head a bit and move forward,maintaining your position.You finally then lick and kiss the feet of your master,doing it softly,lingeringly and lovingly.
Lesha: is another undefined Gorean word that might possibly mean leash.This word is Always used in the books as a command to a kajira.The commanded girl can be either standing or kneeling.She will then lift her chin,turning her head to the left.She also placed her wrists behind her as though they were manacled.This would allow an owner to leash and bind a girl for travel.
Leading position: is a command where a girl places her head down at her master,s waist He then fastens his left hand in her hair,keeping his right hand free to grab his sword if necessary.The master then walks,pulling his kajira behind him.This is usually only done for short distances.It may also be done in crowded areas if the master does not have a leash.
Heel: is a command for a girl to stand behind her master,usually to walk behind him.Kajira heel to the left of a right handed master.If you walked on the right side,it would be seen as a sign of disfavor.If there are several girls following a master,the girl who is closest to the master is the one most favored.
Bracelets: is a command generally given when a master wishes to place manacles upon a girl.It may also be given as a command simply to have the girl assume the position.In this position,the slave stands before her master,with her hips slightly turned to one side and her back and shoulders erect.Her wrists are then crossed behind her back and she turns her head to the left.
A common neck chaining position is for a girl to get on her hands and knees.This allows the master to easily attach a chain to a girl,s collar.It could also be used to leash a girl as well.
High-harness position: is another position used if you wish to leash a girl.The girl stands straight,her head held far back so a leash can be attached to her collar.It may also be used simply as a position for a girl to assume for either discipline or training purposes.
Obeisance: is a command,commonly given as perform obeisance.Obeisance essentially is a gesture or body movement that shows respect.There are many ways in which a kajira can respond to this command.Three common forms were listed in Mercenaries of Gor,book 21.Note though,that these forms are not specific positions.They are only a few examples of how obeisance can be shown.There are many others.If you are commanded to perform obeisance,any of these forms will suffice unless your master has previously told you that he requires a specific form when he gives such a command.The first form listed is mentioned as a possible obeisance though there are authorities who claim it is not such a position.At is a common position of slave submission.Essentially,it is the nadu position where the kajira also lowers her head in deference.
Masters may give certain commands,which at times have disciplinary purposes.These commands may also be given for other purposes.
Gag law: is a discipline where a girl is forbidden to speech,save for moans and whispers.Though she wears no actual gag,she must act as if she does.
Bound by the masters will: also known as a will bond,means that a kajira must remain as if she was chained,braceled or bound by actual equipment,even though no such items truly bind her.She may have to keep her hands crossed behind her,touching each other and cannot release them without permission.Her ankles may be similarly crossed and expected to remainthat way.Some men leave a girl holding a public slave ring without chaining them to that ring.The kajira is expected not to release the ring under any circumstances until her masters return.Almost any position will suffice,subject to the desires of the master.
Discipline of the she-quadruped: Is sometimes called online the discipline of the she-leen yet that is an erroneous name,one not listed in the novels.In this modality,a kajira pretends to be an animal in all respects.Speech is forbidden,except animal sounds.She is forbidden human posture and must walk around on all fours.Food will be thtown to her or put in pans and she must eat without her hands.She may even be taught pet tricks.If she is used sexually,she will beused as an animal.This modality may be used as a punishment or for training a new kajira.It teaches a kajira that she is on the level of an animal.It is often imposed on captured Ubaras.
There are a variety of cammon whipping positions.In all forms,the kajira is stripped so as to not ruin her clothing.One standard form is for a girl,s wrists to be braceleted and her hands then raised above her head.The bracelets are commonly chained to a beam on the ceiling.The chains are then raised until the girl,s heels are about a quarter of an inch off the ground.In many whipping positions,the girl,s hair is also moves aside so it will not be ruined by the whip.
Other Commands: Kajirae are often rewarded with pastries if they are pleasing.If given one,a Master may command the kajira to,eat it very slowly,making it last a long time.This means the kajira must eat the pastry incredibly slowly.barely touching it.Primarily she is to use her tongue on it,only nibbling it once in a while.This serves to put her under good discipline,is good exercise for the tongue,and increases her sexual heat.A master could also ask a kajira to eat other items in this same manner besides pastry.When a master wants his slave for pleasure in his home,he tells the slave to light the lamp of love,the ravishment lamp.The kajira will light the lamp and place it in the window so they will not be disturbed.
Slave lips: is a command for a kajira to purse her lips as if she is ready to kiss someone.She cannot break this command until she has been kissed by her Master.
Speak as a slave: is a command for a kajira to speak in the third person.Some wrongly believe that all slaves must speak in the third person.The novels though contain a multitude of examples in the third person but it is not an absolute.It all depends on each kajira,s master and her training.It is not wrong for a slave to use the first person unless she is under specific orders to speak in third person.
Show rebellion: is a cruel command,where a mock rebellion is permitted.Kneel is the command that commonly tells the kajira to stop the mock rebellion.When a girl has been permitted defiance,it is very sweet to bring her back under absolute control.
Sandals: is a command for a kajira to place sandals on her master.The girl gets the sandals and kisses them.She then places the sandals on his feet,thonging them tightly,and kissing each knot as she completes it.After tying both sandals,she put her head to his feet in a graceful gesture of submission.
Pretended disinterest: is a dangerous command.It is usually given to a slave in reference to a supper quest who the master intends to give the girl to later in the evening.She must pretend disinterest,and sometimes loathing,to the quest though she must still serve in absolute perfection.She then gradually permits her true feelings to come out,giving the impression of having been seduced by the quest.Some quests may be angered by this joke if they discover it.A host should know his quest well before trying such a joke.
Hair: is a command given generally at feasts and banquets.A girl would kneel before a quest and lower her head.A quest could then wipe and clean his hands on her hair.Napkins are not apparently a big thing at such feasts.
