Gorean masters seldom apply the lash their slaves
Gorean masters, on the whole, incidentally, seldom apply the lash, even to their slaves. There is seldom any point in doing so. The slave attempts to be pleasing, honestly and fervently, to the best of her ability. It would be absurd then to do her hurt. She is a prized possession, a treasure, lovely and desirable; she is the most delicious thing a male can own. Let him rejoice in his slave.
There she is, at his feet, curled, exquisitely desirable, needful, hoping for a smile, or a caress. She longs not for a whipping, but for her possession, her being owned, her ravishing. She is her master’s possession and plaything, and would have it no other way.
She longs for discipline; she desires to be taken in hand, and subdued. She desires to yield the surrender that, in any case, she knows would be taken from her. She longs to be mastered. So work her, and well, and enjoy her, and never let her forget she is a female, and, in a collar, a slave. It is enough that the whip is there, and she knows, if it is appropriate, it will be used on her.
