Gorean Slave Position
Naud: The position of nadu is generally the first position a slave is taught. Unless otherwise instructed, nadu is the position generally used for resting.
The slave kneels before the Master or Mistress. The head is held high, but the eyes are downcast. The knees are spread widely, so that the inside of the knees is a space as wide as the shoulders. The shoulders themselves are back with the spine straight (kajirus) or slightly arched (kajira). The breasts are thrust outward. The hands are placed on the thighs, open, with the palms upward. The hips rest on the feet, which are turned in so as to take the weight off the arches. If the slave will be getting up and down often, it is permitted change the position of the feet so that getting up and down can be done gracefully.
NOTE: A white silk, or girl in training for her white silks will not use this position as stated, rather her knees shall be closed and her palms turned downward, unless specifically told otherwise (see Tower position).
The slave sits upon her heels with her back and shoulders straight, chest out, belly in, and head up, with eyes averted slightly downcast. The slaves thighs are open, widely spread and hands rest upon her thighs palms downward (upward for her owner or someone special at times). "Nadu" come from the Gorean word for "kneel" and it is also called the position of a pleasure slave.
