Slave Positions in BDSM: A Comprehensive Guide

Slave positions are fundamental poses or stances used in BDSM to establish a power dynamic between the dominant (or top) and the submissive (or bottom). These positions help create a sense of protocol and structure within BDSM relationships, allowing for clear communication and expectations. While the term “slave” is used in this context, it can be interchanged with “submissive” or “bottom” based on personal preference and dynamic within the relationship.

The History of Slave Positions

Slave positions have been a part of kink culture for centuries and are deeply rooted in the history of BDSM. They were popularized by the Gore Books and are commonly used in higher protocol situations and relationships. Many of the positions are inspired by historical ways of showing reverence, such as kneeling or bowing one’s head.

The Purpose of Slave Positions

The primary purpose of these positions is to allow the submissive to be ready and waiting for the dominant, showing respect and readiness for play or punishment. These positions can be used in various ways, including daily life, playtime, and marking the beginning or end of a scene.

How to Implement Slave Positions

Naming and Numbering

You can assign numbers or names to each position, making it easier for the submissive to understand and assume the correct pose. For example, saying “number three” or “stand for inspection” can signal the specific position you expect the submissive to assume.

Teaching and Drilling Positions

Start by teaching one or two positions at a time to avoid overwhelming the submissive. Once they have mastered these, you can have fun by drilling them, making it a sort of “slave workout” while you sit back and enjoy.

Creating Your Own Positions

Feel free to create your own positions or explore various lists available online for more inspiration. The key is to choose positions that work for both the dominant and the submissive, ensuring comfort and effectiveness.

Considerations

It’s essential to consider the submissive’s ability to get into and hold these positions, considering factors like pain issues, bad knees, or a bad back. Be flexible and work together to find positions that are comfortable and effective for both parties.
