”Acknowledgement of place” is a beautiful and useful phrase that we – slave and Owner – have learnt from a dear friend, Dom and bitch-teacher. It is meant for a bitch in order to teach her to accept her lowly position and inferior status. she acknowledges that she is under men, always lower, and with no expectation ever of equality or of leaving this the lowest of places. Under her Owner’s foot, although neither tied nor chained, she is locked into a position she knows is under in all meanings of the word, she must accept it. This is a beautiful way of acknowledging her correct place.
