In my article
“The Process Of Selection”, I have already proposed the
similarities between finding or petitioning a Master, and
finding or applying for job employment.
In “Slave Petitions”, I will
further expounded on the concept of similarities of slave
petitions, search for employment, and cover letters or resumes
used for finding employment.
Without the consideration of the
possibility, but not necessity or requirement of slavery, of
romantic involvement with a potential Master, consensual slavery is
not only like employment, it is indeed employment, that for most
slaves is the biggest and most demanding job they ever held. Any
desire of romantic involvement with ones potential Master is an
added aspect, but does in no way negate the most applicable and
fitting comparison with employment.
Many of the same etiquette,
procedures and formalities used for finding employment, should
therefore be applicable in finding a suitable Master as well, and
that includes the use of common sense.
I am not aware that there is an
universal protocol governing, “Slave Petitions”, Begging A Collar”,
“Earning A Collar”, or “Offering A Collar”, nor is there an
universal protocol governing who should ask who, and I am by no
means the inventor of any of this terms, phrases or procedures.
A “Slave Petition” is a term
descriptive of all procedures related to a slaves actions in order
to find a suitable Master to serve, just as an application process
or procedure when trying to find employment.
A “Slave Petition” may or may not
start with a “cover letter”, a “resume”, may or may not continue
with a “interview”, and may or may not lead to a slave “begging”,
“earning”, or being “offered” a Masters collar.
A “Slave Petition” is, what a slave
makes of it. The initial part of a “Slave Petition” such as a cover
letter, resume or initial interview, is as little binding as sending
a job application, cover letter or resume to a potential employer.
Once a stage is reached in which
the slave is actually “begging” a Masters collar, or being “offered”
a Masters collar, the slave needs to be aware that if a Master
accepts a slaves “begging” of his collar, or if the slave accepts a
“offered” collar, it was indeed the last free decision a slave will
make, until such time that the slave is again set free and released
by her Master, or until a slaves or Masters passing on.
As with everything else in life,
there are always differing circumstances, different individuals, and
differing situations, or special circumstances. Again, as with
everything else in life, use your common sense and intuition.
For instance, if the potential
Master and the slave already know each other, or have net before,
there is no need of for a physical description, or a general
introduction and cover letter. If a slave already knows a potential
Master is indeed the Master she desires to serve then by all means,
include that in your petition. Etc.
It is a common misconception in our
lifestyle, that slave’s are to sit and wait for a Master to come
around and court them. A misconception so big, that it leaves indeed
many slave’s Masterless. It is indeed absolutely encouraged and well
within the protocol that slaves initiate contact and may approach
suitable and potential Masters and petition for service with them.
Once a slave has established
what she has to offer to a Master as well as what she needs and
desires in a Master, she is now ready to find and locate a
suitable Master and petition for service to a potential Master.
For help with determining a
slave’s needs and desires and the kind of Master who might be
suitable for a slave please read the article
“The Process Of Selection”.
A Slave petition is very
similar to a Cover Letter that you would include with a Resume
when applying for a job.
There are many websites on the
internet that offer help with writing a Cover Letter or Resume, and
most of their advise can very well be used and is applicable when
writing a Slave Petition.
A Slave Petition should include
your general experiences in the lifestyle. How long you have been in
the lifestyle, how many Masters you have served, what the lifestyle
means to you, etc. If you are a novice, don’t make experiences up,
but admit freely and let the potential Master know. Most Masters do
not mind training a novice slave.
Use proper address when addressing
a potential Master and be most respectful and polite in the way you
write your petition.
In general, as honesty is most
important in our lifestyle, keep your petition honest, but sell
yourself well. Remember you are petitioning to the potential Master
because you would like or at least consider serving him. Be humble,
but don’t lose the Masters interest by letting him know how unworthy
you think you might be of serving him. Leave that judgment up to the
A most important part of a Slave’s
Petition is why you wish to serve the potential Master, what your
desires are, and what motivates you in being a slave, and what you
can offer the Master.
Include your most important
characteristics like honesty, loyalty, devoted, caring, loving,
obedient, etc. Let the potential Master also know you seek absolute
enslavement, submission, etc. But be sure you have your wants and
needs balance and know how to differentiate between the two.
Should you have any important
restrictions, handicaps, health problems, limitations, or dependents
like children living with you, or are able – unable to relocate, you
should include that in your petition.
Also special talents that can
benefit the Master, like excellent cook, great housekeeper,
service-oriented, etc. also what kind of work can or do you do,
should you be required to work outside the home.
Include special interests, like
spirituality, fishing, reading, etc. especially if those are
interests that also hold the potential Masters interest.
Unless you are looking for a
commitment that is strictly based on play and scening, I would not
go overboard with a list of BDSM related interests like Bondage,
Flogging, Nipple Clamps, Being Serviced Orally, etc. Slavery is not
based on play, and last not least, you are offering your service to
a potential Master, and are not soliciting his services to service
I would strongly suggest you
include a recent picture of yourself along with your petition.
I think you get the picture and can
think of many more things that should find a Masters interest.
Above all, don’t be shy of
petitioning once you have located a potential Master that you might
want to serve. Don’t be afraid of rejection either. No Master will
think badly of you, look down on you, or even laugh at you, for
petitioning to him, if he accepts you in his service or not.
A most helpful article that will help many
slaves and aspiring slaves to prepare for service to a Master is

“Awaiting The One”
Once a mutual interest between the
Master and the slave has been established, arrangements for a first
interview or meeting can be made. An interview might take place via
the internet in instant messenger, over the phone, or in person.
Whichever way such
first and initial interview or meeting takes place, here are a few
pointers and considerations.
I can however not over stress the
fact that a slave needs to be aware that in Absolute Slavery, or
Absolute and Total Power Exchange, the Master has the right to
change, alter, or modify his service requirements and expectations,
at any time, for any reason, and at the Masters sole discretion. A
Masters values, character, principles, perceptions, etc. are
therefore a most important consideration, as they do not change as
easily as service requirements or kink.
Don't focus your
energy and time on Doms or replies that are rude or stupid, or those
completely unqualified. Don't even waste time complaining about it.
Focus on what is important. And as you apparently have followed my
writings, you should already know what is important.
Asking questions is
very important. It will not only give you answers to your concerns,
but also show the prospective Master your interest and sincerity.
But do not fall into the trap of questioning the prospective Master,
interrogate him or try to run the initial
overwhelm the prospective Master with questions either. You can and
will learn much about the Master, his values and requirements by
Do not focus on what a prospective
Master can do for you, but focus on what you as a slave can do for
the Master. If it is truly slavery that you need and desire, then
being owned, completely, absolutely and unconditional, and given the
chance and opportunity to serve and please a good Master, seems not
only like a vast improvement and reward over not being owned, but
should correspond very much with the detailed list of your needs and
desires, that you have made.
