Slave positions are ways in which a slave kneels to their Masters, whether showing respect, or
begging forgiveness there is a position for each. The top ten most used positions are in the order
below, followed by the remaining positions.
NOTE: "I noted that the palms of her hands, so soft, so vulnerable, had
turned on her thighs, so that they faced up. Among slave girls this is a common way of signaling need,
helplessness, a desire to
please." VAGABONDS OF GOR, Pg. 209
"It is almost universal, as far as I know, that a slave kneels in one fashion or another when entering her
master's presence, or if she should find herself in his presence. She commonly kneels when spoken
to by any free person. This is simply a matter of respect. To be sure, she can be slain if she does not
do so. The kneeling position, of course, which the master's, or free person's, permission, either
tacit or explicit, is usually required to break, is commonly an initial position. For example, after
its deferential assumption, she may be dismissed from it, to other duties, such as cleaning, shopping
or cooking." DANCER OF GOR, Pg. 115
"Bara, Kajira!" he said. She rolled quickly to her stomach, placing her wrists behind
her, crossed, and crossing her ankles, ready to be bound. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 77
Bara, the Gorean word for "belly",
although slaves are expected to respond to either command in the same fashion. In this
position the slave falls to her stomach, face down to the floor and turned to the left, crosses
her wrists behind her back, and similarly crosses her ankles, her legs straight, in preparation
"I pointed to the stones at my feet. "Crawl," I said, in Gorean. The girl slipped to
her belly, and, as a slave girl, crawled to my feet. She put her lips to my foot; I felt her hair over it.
TRIBESMEN OF GOR, Pg. 78
The slave gets down on all fours, her palms to elbows flat on the floor, ass in the air, forehead close
but not touching the floor. She crawls to just an inch from the Master's feet.
Also called Binding position. From the Gorean word Lesha, which translates
as "leash." In this position, the slave remains either standing or kneeling, depending upon the current
position she is in. She turns and puts her back to her Master, her chin up, her head turned to the left
so a leash may be attached to her collar, with her chin up and her back and shoulders straight. Her
wrists are extended behind her, side by side, in a position to be locked into chained slave bracelets.
"She is yours," he said. He took his strap off her throat, and unbound her hands.
"Submit," I told her. She knelt before me, back on her heels, arms extended, head down, between
her arms, wrists crossed, as though for binding. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 74
The collaring position, is also called "The Position of Female Submission." A slave kneels
at her Master's feet, sitting on her heels. She extends her arms upward, and crosses her wrists.
"Lesha," snapped the second officer to the blond girl. She spun from facing him,
and lifted her chin, turning her head to the left, placing her wrists behind her, as though for snapping
them into slave bracelets. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 76
Kneeling. The slave kneels quickly spreading her thighs wide, arches her back stiffly and places her hands,
wrists crossed, at the small of her back, turns her head to the left with eyes lowered submissively, lips
parted slightly and awaits the leash or inspection.
"Tossing my head I knelt, the chain dangling from my collar before my body, to
the grass. I knelt back on my heels, my back very straight, my hands on my thighs, my head high,
looking straight ahead. I thrust my shoulders back, my breasts forward. I did not neglect the
placement of my knees; I opened them as widely as I could, as I knew the men wanted. I knelt before
them again in that most elegant and helpless position in which men may place a woman, that position
I was later to learn was that of the Gorean Pleasure Slave." SLAVEGIRL OF GOR, Pg. 20
-This is one of the most used positions. The slave kneels, her thighs open wide, her hands
placed palms up atop her thighs, her belly and back slightly in, shoulders straight, forcing
her breasts out, her head is raised proudly, her eyes lowered to the ground.
"Now inch forward," I said, " remaining low on your belly, and when you reach
my feet, once again, as before,lifting your head a little, tenderly and humbly, and beautifully, as
though you were a slave , lick and kiss them. Good. Good. Now take my foot and place it gently
on your head. Very good. Now place it again on the Mat, and kiss it again. Good. You may now
belly back a little, humbly. I have not yet given you permission to rise of course." MERCENARIES
OF GOR, Pg. 411
The slave goes to the floor, laying upon her stomach, face down before the Master. She turns her
head and places her cheek against his feet, kissing them lightly in a gesture of love and submission.
"I knelt before the guest, putting the palms of my hands on the floor and my head to the tiles.
KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 305
The slave kneels and touches her forehead to the floor and stretches her arms out before her
with palms face down and fingers spread.
"Similarly, I was not required to respond to certain sorts of commands, for
example, to make "slave lips," pursing my lips for kissing, or to writhe slowly before my viewers.
KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 224
When this command is given, the slave turns her head up to the Master, her lips pursed in a
sensual kissing position. She remains motionless, her lips thusly puckered, and may not move
until she is granted the kiss of a Master.
"A girl who is commanded to make slave lips, or who receives the
command, “Slave Lips,” must form her mouth for kissing. She then, commonly, is not permitted
to break this lip position until either she kisses or is kissed. Needless to say, a girl cannot speak
when her lips are in the unbroken, fully pursed slave-lips position. The command which
commonly follows the “Slave-lips” command is, “Please me.” BLOOD BROTHERS OF GOR, Pg. 111"
"Then, before I could realize what he intended, he had subjected Miss Cardwell to
what, among slavers, is know as the Whip Caress. Ideally it is done, as Kamchak had, unexpectedly,
taking the girl unawares. Elizabeth suddenly cried out throwing her head to one side. I observed to
my amazement the sudden, involunary, uncontrollable response to the touch. The Whip Caress is
commonly used among Slavers to force a girl to betray herself." NOMADS OF GOR, Pg. 168
The slave falls to the floor upon all fours, and lowers her head to the ground, with her buttocks thrust
upward and her thighs widely spread, exposing her hindquarters fully in preparation for the caress
of the leather against her body.
The following are other positions used on Gor
"Stop," he said. "To your belly." Then I was on my belly, on the tiles, my hands at
the sides of my head, prone, before his curule chair. KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 427
A slave lays on her belly, parts her legs, shoulder-width apart and lays her arms by her sides, palms
up, her forehead to the ground. She then crawls to her Master's feet, remaining on her belly as
she does so.
"I then threw the second blanket, the top blanket over her, covering her completely.
When a blanket, or cloak, or covering of any sort, is thrown over a slave like this she may not speak or
rise. She must remain as she is, silent, until the master , or some free man, lifts the covering away."
EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 94
BOUND BY THE MASTERS WILL
"There are many ways of putting a girl at the ring, ‘bound by the master’s will’. One
typical way is to stand her at the ring and have her place her right hand behind her back through
the ring and grasp her left wrist. Another typical way is to kneel her at the ring and have her put her
right hand through the ring, grasping her left wrist. One of the simplest and perhaps the most typical
way of ‘binding by the master's will’ is simply to have the girl grasp her left wrist with her right hand
behind her back. WITNESS OF GOR, Pg. 388
"Bracelets," he snapped. She put her head in the air and placed her hands behind
her back. HUNTERS OF GOR, Pg. 146
A slave kneels, thighs spread wide, back arched, and extends her arms before her, her wrists
together in preparation for being bound. Her head is held high, her eyes lowered submissively.
"On your back," he said, "knees raised, heels on the floor." I then lay before
him, in a standard, supine capture position. KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 422
COFFLE, KNEEL TO BE
"Kneel to be coffled," said one of the men. The girls knelt,
closely, one behind the other, there were six wrist rings on the chain he carried. He placed the girl who
had been whipped by Lady Sabina first in the coffle line. "Left wrist coffle," he said. They lifted their left
wrists, frightened. Interestingly, the man snapping the wrist rings on the girls´ left wrists did not put the
first girl in the first ring, but the second. When the four maids were coffled there was, thus, an empty
wrist ring both at the head and rear of the line. "Stand, Slaves," said the man. "Lower chain." The
girls stood. Then, ordered, the lowered their wrists. They were then in line, standing, coffled."
SLAVE GIRL OF GOR, Pg. 127
"I pointed to the stones at my feet. "Crawl," I said,
in Gorean. The girl slipped to her belly, and, as a slave girl, crawled to my feet. She put her lips to
my foot; I felt her hair over it. TRIBESMAN OF GOR, Pg. 78
DISCIPLINE OF THE SHE-TARSK
At that time I did not know of the habit of some
masters, usually imposed as punishment, to refuse an upright poture to their girls, and to refuse
them, as well, the use of human language. They must go about on all fours, or their bellies, and
communicate, as they can, by whimpers, moans, and such. They are naked, save for their collars.
They are not permitted to use their hands to feed themselves, and so on. Nedless to say, they also
serve in this modality. There are various Gorean expressions for this, one is " discipline of the
she-tarsk" WITNESS OF GOR, Pg. 173
"The auctioneer did not strike her with his whip. He merely took her arms and
lifted them, so that the position chain, attached to each side of the sales collar lay across her her
upper arms. Then he had her clasp her hands behind the back of her neck, so that the chain, on
each side of the collar, was in the crook of her arms, and she was exposed in such a way that she
could be properly exhibited. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 36
"Have that one stand, to be examined," said a man.
"Cotina, stand, examination position!" snapped Targo.
Cotina stood, her legs widely spread, her head back, her hands clasped behind the back of her
neck. It is hard for a woman to move from this position and she must be concerned with her balance.
The subtle adjustments and tenseness required to maintain her balance keep her even more
helplessly in place, and these adjustments and this tenseness will also be expressed in her posture,
providing body-language cues bespeaking obedience and servitude. Too, obviously this posture bares
her vulnerably, and her hands cannot interfere with the examination. The position of the arms, the
hands clasped behind the back of the neck, or, sometimes, behind the back of the head, lifts the bosom,
exhibiting it beautifully.
PRIZE OF GOR, Pg. 247
“Feet,” I said.
This time she had enough presence of mind to squirm to my feet and press her lips upon them,
kissing them. VAGABONDS OF GOR, Pg. 276
"her head then touched the furs, her body a cruel, helpless bow.
ASSASSIN OF GOR, Pg. 185
A slave kneels, thighs spread wide, and leans over backwards until her head touches the floor. She
then pulls herself up, arching her back. This exposes a slave's heat and breasts for her Master's
"Her master seized her from the circle then and hurried her from the light, her
head down, held by the hair, at his left hip. This is a common leading position for female slaves
being conducted short distances. As the master holds her hair in the left hand, it leaves his right
hand, commonly the sword hand, free." MAGICIANS OF GOR, Pg. 46
A slave remains in whatever position she is in but gathers her hair and offers it to her Master.
"The Forkbeard turned about and, one arm about Pudding, the other about
Gunnhild, started from the dock. Hilda followed him, to his left. 'She heels nicely,' said Ottar. The
men and bond-maids laughed. The Forkbeard stopped. Hilda's face burned red with fury, but she
kept her head high. Pet sleen are taught to heel; so, too, sometimes, are bond-maids; I was familiar
with this sort of thing, of course; in the south it was quite common for slave girls; in various fashions
in various cities, to heel their masters. Hilda, of course, was a free woman. For her to heel was an
incredible humiliation. The Forkbeard started off again, and then again stopped. Again, Hilda
followed him as before. 'She is heeling!' laughed Ottar. MARAUDERS OF GOR, Pg. 123
A slave kneels just behind her Master's left foot. As He moves she must remain just behind His
foot, but never come in contact with it at any time.
"Lift your head, " he said. "Higher. Higher!" She looked up at him, her head far back, the
leash on her throat.... "You need not now keep your head in high-harness position,", he said to the girl. She
moved her head. MERCENARIES OF GOR, Pg. 308-309
HOUSE SLAVE POSITION
"She knelt back on her heels, her back straight, her head up, her hands on her thighs.
She knelt in the position of the house slave. I looked at her sternly. Swiftly she spread her knees. She
knelt now in the position of the pleasure slave, the slave of interest to men." 14) FIGHTING SLAVE
OF GOR, Pg. 345-346
The slave kneels on the floor, her thighs spread wide, and leans forward
placing her breasts and forehead against the floor, her arms fully extended, palms against floor. Ankles
may be crossed or uncrossed. (used online)
"Knee crawl," I said, "Fetch it here." She went to the box on her knees and picked it
up, and returned to a place before me. It had been a simple knee crawl. I was briefly reminded, however,
of the Turian knee walk, sometimes used by slave dancers. I considered the slave. I did not doubt but
what she might be taught to dance. MAGICIANS OF GOR, Pg. 342
KNEEL TO THE COFFLE
"Kneel to be coffled," said one of the men. The girls knelt, closely, one behind the
other, there were six wrist rings on the chain he carried. He placed the girl who had been whipped by
Lady Sabina first in the coffle line. "Left wrist coffle," he said. They lifted their left wrists, frightened.
Interestingly, the man snapping the wrist rings on the girls’ left wrists did not put the first girl in the
first ring, but the second. When the four maids were coffled there was, thus, an empty wrist ring both
at the head and rear of the line. "Stand, Slaves," said the man. "Lower chain." The girls stood. Then,
ordered, the lowered their wrists. They were then in line, standing, coffled.
SLAVEGIRL OF GOR, Pg. 127
KNEELING TO THE WHIP
"I went to Targo, trembling, and knelt at his feet... I crossed my wrists beneath
me and touched my head to the floor, exposing the bow of my back. It is the submissive posture of
a slave girl who is to be punished. It is called Kneeling to the Whip." CAPTIVE OF GOR, pg. 200
"Kneel up," said a man. "Higher, up off your heels. Keep those pretty knees wide.
Hold still." DANCER OF GOR, Pg. 99
"In a moment I had left the building, pulling the captive behind me, her head
down at my waist, in leading position. MERCENARIES OF GOR, Pg. 399-400
A slave approaches her Master's side and bends at the waist, gathering up her hair to present to her
Master, so he may lead her by the hair.
"Her master seized her from the
circle then and hurried her from the light, her head down, held by the hair, at his left hip. This is a
common leading position for female slaves being conducted short distances. As the master holds
her hair in the left hand, it leaves his right hand, commonly the sword hand, free.
MAGICIANS OF GOR, Pg. 46"
"Nestle," I told her. "Yes, Master," she said. She nestled obediently in the crook
of my left arm. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 279
"There are many ways to perform obseisance. "I said. "I am a free woman,"
she said, " I know none of them." "I shall instruct you briefly in three," I said. " First kneel before
me , back on your heels, yes, with your knees wide, wider, your hands on your thighs, your back
straight, your breasts out, good, your belly in, good, and now lower your head in deference, in
submission. 'Now that,' I said, 'may not be exactly a form of obeisance, for authorities do not all
agree, but for our purposes we shall count it as one. It is, at any rate, a beautiful position, and it is,
certainly, a common position of slave submission.' 'Now' I said, 'and this is clearly a form of obeisance,
bend forward and put your head to the mat, the palms of your hands on the mat. Good. Now lift your head
a little and come forward, substantially keeping the position. Forward a little more.' 'But then my face will be
at your feet,' she said, 'My lips will be over them!' 'Yes,' I said, 'Good, now, put your head down and lick and
kiss my feet.' 'I am a Free Woman!' She said. 'You are a woman,' I said, 'now softly lingeringly, and lovingly,
good.' 'I am not a slave,' she said 'All women are slaves,' I said 'Imagine what this would be like if you were
truly a collared slave.' She gasped. 'Now' I said, 'for a third form of obeisance. You may belly to me.' 'I do not
understand,' she whispered. 'There are various forms of bellying,' I said, 'and bellying may be suitably and
pleasingly combined with other forms of floor movements, approaching the Master on all fours, turning to
your sides and back, writhing before him, and so on. We will take a very simple variation, suitable for an
ignorant free female who has not yet even begun to discover the depths of her sexuality.' She looked up at
me. 'On your belly,' I said. She backed off a bit , and went to her belly. Her hair was before her face, as she
now on her belly before me looked up at me. 'Now inch forward,' I said, 'remaining low on your belly, and when
you reach my feet, once again, as before, lifting your head a little, tenderly and humbly, and beautifully, as
though you were a slave , lick and kiss them. Good. Good. Now take my foot and place it gently on your head.
Very good. Now place it again on the Mat, and kiss it again. Good. You may now belly back a little, humbly. I
have not yet given you permission to rise of course.' " MERCENARIES OF GOR, Pg. 409
"I was amused, for she had run as a slave girl is sometimes taught to run, with
rapid short steps, her legs almost straight, her feet scarcely leaving the ground, back straight,
head turned to the left, arms at her sides, palms out at a fourty-five degree angle, more of a dancers
motion than a true run." ASSASSIN OF GOR, Pg. 45
"I was amused, for she had run as a slave girl is sometimes taught to run, with rapid short steps,
her legs almost straight, her feet scarcely leaving the ground, back straight, head turned to the left,
arms at her sides, palms out at a forty-five degree angle, more of a dancers motion than a true run.
ASSASSIN OF GOR, Pg.45.
A slave runs toward her objective, taking
small rapid steps, her legs almost straight, her feet barely leaving the floor. As she runs, her back
is straight, her head is turned to the left, her arms are at her sides with palms facing outward.
Upon reaching her objective she drops gracefully to her knees and typically resumes the position
of Pleasure slave.
"In this form of slavery, which is commonly used for disciplinary purposes, or for
the amusement of the Master, the woman is not permitted to arise from all fours; similarly she is not
permitted human speech, though she may signify needs and desires by such means as cringing, and
moaning and whimpering. Not permitted the use of her hands, save as a means of locomotion, she
must also eat and drink from pans set on the floor, or, sometimes to satisfy her thirst, she must lap
the water permitted to her from puddles or lick pillages from the tiles; too, it is not uncommon to
chain her near her master's feet, while he dines, that he may, if he wishes, throw her scraps of food.
She will also be taught tricks, through which paces she may be put for the entertainment of her
master's guests, such things as begging, lying down, rolling over, and fetching his sandals in her
teeth. And, needless to say, when her master wishes to use her sexually, it will be a position
common to the she-quadruped. GUARDSMAN OF GOR, Pg. 225
"He knelt me there. "Put your head down, to the floor," he said. "Clasp your hands
behind the back of your neck." "Yes, Master," I moaned. KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 434
A slaves gets down on her knees and elbows and clasps her hands over her head, raising her hips as
she does so. She parts her thighs and arches her back, forcing her hips yet higher, exposing herself
completely to His view or caress. She readies herself to be beaten or taken sexually like an animal,
depending on her Master's whim.
"I went to the side of the room and picked up my sea bag. I threw it to the center
of the room. She looked down at it puzzled. It was of heavy blue material, canvas, and tied with a
white rope. "Lie down upon it," I told her, "on your back, your head to the floor." She did so. "No,
please," she said, "not like this." It is a common position for a disciplinary slave rape. In it the
woman feels very vulnerable, very helpless. I then took her." EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 202
"I had left them behind me, more than a pasang from this place, tied, gagged, in
a slave star. I would not need them tonight. Before fastening them in the slave star I had, on their
bellies, watered them at a small steam. I had then found a suitable, thick-trunked tree, their backs to
it, and fastened them in the star, the left wrist of the first girl bound to the right wrist of the next, and
so about the tree, until the star was closed by binding the left wrist of the fourth girl to the last untethered
wrist, the right wrist of the first girl. I then crossed their ankles, and bound their ankles together, each girl
individually."HUNTER OF GOR, Pg. 195
"Stake position", said Ephialtes to the two women. Immediately they both lay
down, with a sound of chain. It is not unusual to forbid a rent slave, during her use times, when
chained at a stake, to rise even to her knees. VAGABONDS OF GOR, Pg. 386
"Stand as a slave", he said. I stood beautifully, back straight, head high, belly
sucked in, hip turned. No woman can stand more beautifully than a Gorean slave girl. "Excellent",
said Ladletender, smacking his lips. "Master is pleased", I said. "Yes", he said. "The slave, too, is
then pleased", I said. SLAVE GIRL OF GOR, Pg. 249
"Standard binding position," he said. I was prone. When a girl is prone, the
standard binding position is to cross the wrists behind the back and to cross the ankles. I took this
position instantaneously. SLAVEGIRL OF GOR, Pg. 125
"Submit," he said. She looked at me, wildly, piteously. I aided her. I showed her
how to kneel back on her heels, her arms extended to him, wrists crossed, her head down, between
her arms. "Say, 'I submit,' " I said. "I submit," she said. He bound her wrists tightly before her body."
SLAVE GIRL OF GOR, Pg. 401
A slave kneels, bending at the waist, placing her cheek to
the floor. She then takes the Master's right foot and places it upon her neck, her arms behind her
back with her wrists crossed. A girl might assume this position if she has displeased her Master,
as it shows complete submission, His foot on her neck showing that she offers Him even her life
"Sula, Kajira!" said the man. She slid her legs from under her and lay on her
back, her hands at her sides, palms up, legs open. EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 77
A slave lays flat on the floor on her back, her feet spread shoulder width apart. She places her
arms at her sides. Her eyes remain lowered in submission and she silently awaits
her Master's pleasure.
".. she lay on her back, her knees drawn up, before me. She arched her
back. Her breasts were lifted beautifully. I observed their lovely rise and fall, correlated with
the respiratory cycle of her small lungs. Then she lay back, her shoulders in the dirt, and
pressing against the earth with her small feet, piteously lifted before me, for my examination,
and seizure, if I pleased, the deep belly of her, the sweet cradle of her slave's heat."
EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 329,
The sula-ki is also known as the alternate sula. A slave lays flat on the floor, face upward, her
hands at her sides, palms open and up.
Her legs are spread wide in preparation for her Master's pleasure and
she slowly lifts her hips off the floor. (used online)
A slave has many uses to her Master, one of which is to present
herself as a table, to support his feet or drink. She goes to all fours making sure her back is
level, her head held straight, her eyes lowered in submission. The girl should ensure she is
stable, so as not to risk spilling the drink, or disturbing her Master, and should remain totally
motionless. Stability can be increased if a girl ensures her thighs are parted widely and her
elbows locked. (used online)
"The position of the Tower Slave, in which Vika knelt, differs from that of
a free woman only in the position of the wrists which are held before her and, when not occupied,
crossed as though for binding... PRIEST-KINGS OF GOR, Pg. 46
A slave kneels with her knees modestly together, back straight, eyes lowered. Her palms
rest down upon her thighs.
"She kept her knees tightly together
before the free woman. Had she knelt before a man she would probably have had to keep
them open, even if they were brutally kicked apart, a lesson to her, to be more sensitive
as to before whom she knelt. MAGICIANS OF GOR, Pg. 18"
"We all sat facing him, our backs against the wall of the training room.
The palms of our hands were flat on the floor at our sides and our legs were extended
before us, the ankles crossed, as though bound. “If you doubt that you are slaves,
examine your thighs and consider your collared necks.” ‘We looked at one another. We
were not in doubt that we were slaves. KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg. 291
We all straightened up, sitting, facing him, our backs against the wall of the training room.
The palms of our hands, were flat on the floor at our sides and our legs were extended
before us, the ankles crossed, as though bound. KAJIRA OF GOR, Pg 295
"He knelt me there. "Put your head down, to the floor," he said. "Clasp
your hands, firmly, behind the back of your neck." "Yes, Master," I moaned. He was then
behind me. He put his hands, under my arms, on my breasts, sweetly and firmly. Then
he moved his hands back, caressing my flanks. My head was down. My fingers were
together, behind the back of my neck. I was in his collar. It was steel, I could not remove it.
I belonged to him. My body hurt, from his whip, that of my master. My head hurt, from my
hair, where I had been conducted, unceremoniously, to this location.
EXPLORERS OF GOR, Pg. 202
"I sat back, on the grass, leaning back, on the palms of my hands. In
this fashion one’s hands are rather behind one, and rather held in place, by one’s own
weight. This position is one we are taught. In it, as is clear to us, we are more vulnerable.
WITNESS OF GOR, Pg. 61
When this command is given, a slave turns gracefully, her
hair caressing her body as she turns. She walks quietly across the room or camp, her feet
hardly seeming to leave the ground, her hips swaying sensually, her body erect and proud.
When she reaches her objective she halts and stands, her body erect, her shoulders back,
her chest thrust forward, her belly in. She turns her hips out a bit, her hands at her sides,
and points one foot. Her chin is held high and her eyes are lowered.
"She approached in rapid, small steps, her head down, her hands to the side, slightly
extended, palms back." MAGICIANS OF GOR, Pg. 389
"Whipping position?” she said. “But I am a free woman!” “It is not
only slaves who may be whipped when their captors please,” I told her. She shrank
back, her back against the post. To be sure, she was not tied with her belly against the
post and her hands over her head, out of the way of the lash, or kneeling, her hands
tied in front of her, about the post, common whipping positions."
BLOOD BROTHERS OF GOR, Pg. 397
