I would like to hear from other Master's what there most important rules are for there slaves. If you can also list the punishment that goes with disobeying that specific rule, that would be helpful. Daily tasks are also welcome. My Master and I (we are new to this) are trying to figure out which rules we want to use first. We are going to start slow and have five rules (it was originally going to be 3 but he wants 5 now) to try out for the first two weeks, and then he will add more as he sees fit. Our first rule, is NO back talk of any kind. This includes no arguing with, name calling, eye rolling, etc. We probably need to set more specifics for this rule as I'm not entirely sure what else would constitute as no back-talking. This is the only rule we have set thus far as he wants to make sure he is training me to be the best slave I can be. So, Dom's/Master's what are your rules? What will you absolutely NOT tolerate from your slave/sub? --- Note, we are still very new to this lifestyle. He has been playing the Dom role in sex for the past year and just now brought up that he wants to make it long-term. I agreed enthusiastically. I have an overwhelming desire to please him and to have him control just about every aspect of my life. That being said, I have not been properly trained. I'm used to being able to back-talk him, roll my eyes at him, and be generally disrespectful and get away with it. Things are changing now and it's a huge change, but one that I find I am welcoming. By nature, I have always been an argumentative person. It's going to take some serious training to change that aspect of me. Like I said though, I want to please him and I am welcoming this change in my behavior. If you would also like to share training techniques, please do. Thank you all! Another question if you are a sub/slave how do you treat other men who are not your Master? Are you respectful to them at all times? Does this just depend on the Master? I'm confused on that issue.
