These positions may be called to a slave at any given time. Slaves are encouraged to practice them IRL before a mirror, so that the description on IRC is more flowing. By foolishly typing a position that you have never attempted, your actions on IRC may look silly, unbecoming, impossible, or the position might be plain wrong. Any of which would not only embarrass you, but displease your Master, and pleasing your Master is your most important objective. Once placed in any position by a Master DO NOT speak unless the Master who placed you there asks a question!
The slave moves to lay facedown upon the floor, forehead lightly touching the floor, legs straight with ankles crossed and wrists crossed at the small of the back

This, while not technically a command, is still an action the slave should remember. If something is thrown over her head she must remain silent and motionless until freed from it.
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."

The girl stands and bows at the waist, letting her hair fall forward for display, to be seized or for any other purpose the Master might require. Another varient of this position sometime used is for the slave to stay in her previous position just bowing her head and letting her hair dangle before her for whatever use required.
I held my left hand open, at my waist.
She stiffened, and looked at me, angrily. I opened and closed my left hand once. I saw her
training in Gorean customs had been thorough. But she never thought that such a gesture
would be used to her. She came beside me, and a bit behind me, and, crouching, put her
head down, deeply. I fastened my hand in her hair. She winced. Women are helpless in this

The slave goes to the Master's left if He is right handed, right if left handed and about one and a half paces behind Him. She follows His movements from that point.
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.

These things vary, I learned from city
to city, and depend, also, on such matters as context and conditions. In a market, in the
crowding and jostling for instance, a girl may follow so closely she pressed against the
back of his left shoulder. Girls seldom follow behind and on the right. If she is thusly
placed it is commonly a sign she is in disfavor. If more than one girl is involved, she
who follows most closely on the left is generally taken to be in highest favor; girls
compete for this position. In an open area, such a the fields in which we trekked, the
girl is placed some five or ten feet behind, and on the left. If he must move suddenly she
will not, thusly, constitute an impediment to his action.

This is a position used most often with display slaves. The slave holds her head very high, exposing her neck.
"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.

Sometimes referred to as the collaring position or posture of female submission.In this position the slave kneels at the Master's feet and leans her body back, sitting upon her heels, with her arms extended upward, crossed at the wrists, and her head beneath them lowered in supplication.
"Assume the posture of female
submission," I told her. She did so, kneeling back on her heels, her arms extended,
wrists crossed, her head between them, down. She was weeping.

"She is yours," he said. He
took his strap off her throat, and unbound her hands. "Submit," I told her. She

crossed, as though for binding.

Kneel to the Coffle
Kneels, normally thighs parted, up upon the heels and lifts either the left or right wrist outwards, depending on the type of coffle, so that the wrist can be attached to a wrist ring within the coffle chain
"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.

Modality of the She Quadruped
This is not technically a position but is definitely a command sometimes used for punishment. When ordered into this mode the slave stays on all fours, like an animal, and cannot speak or reach for things with her hands. she is kept quite definitely as only a mute pet much like any sleen would act. Sometimes the slave is even taught tricks she must learn without the help of verbal clues.
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 no
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.

There are three different forms
of this position though all have the same basic meaning behind it. Each is a show of
1) the slave kneels in nadu with her head lowered.
2) from nadu, the slave lowers head to the ground, placing her hands against the ground, palms lowered. (this is sometimes refered to as karta)
3) the slave moves to her belly and slowly inches forward to the Master's feet and at that point proceeds to lick and kiss at them before bellying back somewhat. (this position is known among many as the "belly" position)
"There are many ways to perform
obeisance. "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 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."

my flanks. My head was down. My fingers were together, behind the back of my neck. I was

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...The
position of the Pleasure Slave, incidentally, differs from the position of both the free
woman and the Tower Slave. The hands of a Pleasure Slave normally rest on her thighs but,
in some cities, for example, Thentis, I believe, they are crossed behind her. More
significantly, for the free woman's hands may also rest on her thighs, there is a
difference in the placement of the knees. In all these kneeling positions, incidentally,
even that of the Pleasure Slave, the Gorean woman carries herself well; her back is
straight and her chin is high. She tends to be vital and beautiful to look upon."

A Note on Non-Verbal Commands
It is important that a slave be alert to their Master as commands are not always given orally
He suddenly snapped his fingers and, in
the swift double gesture of the Gorean Master, pointed to a place on the dirt floor before
him, almost simultaneously turning his hand, spreading the first and index fingers,
pointing downwards. I fled to him and knelt before him, my knees in the dirt, in the
position of the pleasure slave, my head down, trembling.

Please note: These descriptions are the basic mechanics for these positions and should be personalized to fit the slave that is performing them, without corrupting the position. Meaning that a brief description of hair color, eye color, and "feelings" should try to be conveyed. When performing them r/l for practice or at Another's command, please keep in mind the picture you offer when doing so.. the position of your body.. how tense your muscles are. Everything about your body will convey a message to a Master much clearer than you actually saying a word.
