In kissing the whip, she acknowledges her bondage and her master.

“The slave in woman responds to the master in man,” she said.

“In kissing the whip, she acknowledges her bondage and her master. She requires and thrills to his domination, and the whip impresses this upon her.

The kissing of the whip is a lovely symbol of her submission. Too, that she is given the whip to kiss informs her that she is not to be immediately slain, and has interest to him as a slave. She is to be permitted to live, though it be on his sufferance. Too, it is a great honor to a slave to be permitted to kiss the master’s whip, as it is to be permitted to kneel before him and be his slave.

How unworthy is a woman to be the slave of a true man! She is grateful to be in the collar of a true man. that than in the jewels of a weakling. Too, she knows that the whip may be used upon her, if she is not pleasing. Indeed, if she loves the master, she may upon occasion wish to feel his whip, the lash of it, for this impresses his ownership of her upon her as little else.

It reassures her, too, of her importance to him, and his seeing of her as a slave, which is important to her. It is a way, too, on his part, to remind her that she is a slave, and his. And, of course, if she has failed in some way, or has not been fully pleasing, this is an excellent way to improve her behavior. Few women will be displeasing who know that the master is strong and the lash is in the offing. A master’s frown or casual glance at the whip, on its peg, is usually far more than is necessary to rectify any shortcomings in a girl’s service.

She knows that a failure to be fully pleasing is not likely to be one without consequences. Far more fearful it is to be ignored or neglected, for then one fears one may have lost his love. But many things are involved. Little is simple in the relation of master and slave, other perhaps than that she is slave and he is master.”
