Posts Tagged ‘limits’

I recently read something on line which peaked my interest.  This particular individual believed that a slave had no limites; not if she was a true slave.  This statement made me stand back and think.  I was perplexed how someone could come to that conclusion.  It made me re-evaluate what I believed on this matter.

Does a true slave have limits?  Her desire is to serve her Master fully.  Along the same lines, her place is to do whatever her Master desires.  Once she submits, her life is no longer her own.  With this reasoning, and up to this point, I can see how the above belief is correct.

However, there seems to be one fact that this individual was missing.  A slaves place is to do whatever her Master desires if she is capable.  This addition changes the situation a great deal.  A slave might not be able to perform certain tasks.  Of course, if it is something that she requires some training, then it might be an activity which she can learn.  Yet, there are certain things that one might not be able to do no matter what her willingness.  A Master needs to be aware of these.

Here are some examples slaves might have a tough time fulfilling if requested: dunking a basketball, performing brain surgery, rebuilding a car engine, solving mathematical equations, or translating an ancient text written in arabic.  Even those her willingness might be complete, there are challenges which might not be overcome.  Simply, the knowledge base isn’t there.

Here is another situation which is more applicable.  Often a Master will ask a slave to perform some sexual activities which she is physically unable to do.  An individual with a back issue comes to mind.  Again, the person might have all the desire to do what her Master wants.  However, physical limitations can exist.  For a Master to push her past this is irresponsible and potentially dangerous.  This is one of those situations where a Master needs to know to pull back.

So, a slave can and will have limitations.  Even thought she exchange all her power, her trust is that her Master will act responsibly.  One of the roles of a Master is to help her uncover her limits, try to push past them, and pull back when she cannot go further.

Part of a Master’s responsibility to a slave is to find her limits. Also, once those limits are found, a good will Master will assist her is surpassing those limits. The main focus for a slave is growth. If a slave is growing, she is increasing to value. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true.

When people typically think of limits, the first ideas that come to mind are either sexually or in terms of pain. Often these are the initial areas that a Master will concentrate upon. Expanding a slave sexually to be able to serve Him is important. Also, some slaves reject the idea of pain only to find later that they really enjoyed it. Many are surprised at how much they can endure while coming to like the sensations felt. Of course, there are some who cannot tolerate much. Even the most experienced Master finds that there are limits to each slave that cannot be overcome. To force past it is abuse in my opinion. One wants to coax a slave to go beyond what she can initially take.

Leaving the sexual aspect of the lifestyle aside, there are other limits which slaves enter the relationship with. Many seem to have esteem issues that limit what they will undertake. An effective Master will see what a slave is capable of. Is she only able to handle household chores? What about her abilities in her profession? Is that something a Master can use to His benefit? Most are natural caretakers. Is this something that will help with a family situation? The bottom line is that a Master needs to look at all that a slave does and try to enlarge her capabilities. The starting point for me always seems to be in the area of self-confidence. As this grows, so does her ability to perform.

One final thought, it is important for a Master to understand when a limit was reached. Many will try to force past it. Again, I believe this to be abuse. A slave cannot perform every task assigned to her regardless of her desire. There are some things which are beyond her abilities. For example, I could beat a slave daily in an effort to get her to dunk a basketball. If she is not able to do it, added motivation will not enhance her ability to perform. By the way, I cannot dunk on either so it is a limitation that this One has also.

Find the limits and try to go beyond them. Yet remember, we want to avoid long-term harm by damaging our slaves mentally. If there is a limit which cannot be overcome, pull back.
