Developing sub/slave Training Programs Part 2: The Training Phase
Author: SAADE

The Training Program:

Here we begin use the information gathered from the assessment phase. I divide the programming two categories: 1) Basic Training and 2) Advanced or specialty training.

Basic Training is meant to lay a foundation of expectations, protocol and rituals to focus the submissive on my needs or style of BDSM. Many of these issues will be covered in detail in upcoming programs but present an outline here.

Basic Training:

1) Sub/slaves Presentation - establishing the demeanor that a submissive will behave toward you and others.

* Forms of Address - How to address and communicate with you 2) Forms of Addressing others 3) silent communication.

* Forms of Service: - How are you to be served under different conditions. High protocol, easy scene etiquette or relax service. Answer - When, where, how.

* Forms of Posture - How to handle yourself within a situation.

2) Levels of Service:

This is dictated by what it is you are wanting from a situation. Is housekeeping an issue, laundry, sexual service given at a certain time. Do you micro manage or not? Either is appropriate.

* Mindfulness - No matter what the level of service is it should be done with mindfulness toward the Dominant.

* Create a time for chores or assignments tot be done. Start off with a rigid schedule.

* Train in how you expect a service to be performed. If you havenít trained then it is your fault if something isn't done to your satisfaction.

* What ever the area of training give clear instructions.

3) Playfulness: Our lifestyle is about naughty fun and decadent behavior. Be serious when its time to be serious and be fun when its time to be fun.

* Have sexual fun.

* Create fantasies and explore within the limits that have been set.

* Initiate new forms of play slowly and keep a sense of humor. If things don't work out, laugh about it.

4) Begin to establish trust by being consistent in your training techniques.
