Miss Abernathy’s Concise Slave Training Guide
There are a lot of "how to" books around on BDSM, which mainly cover areas such as negotiating play, safewords, toys and scenes. There is a dearth of literature on the topic of D/s in a real life relationship. Miss Abernathy has attempted to fill that void with this manual, and has succeeded admirably.
This book is primarily written for dominants who are seeking a slave, although it can equally be read by unowned slaves to gain a focus. (For the record, I am an owned slave and I found the manual to be a very interesting read, as did my Master.) It covers a number of areas that a dominant should consider when choosing a slave, such as: forms of address, general demeanour, the role the slave might fill, as well as things such as signs of ownership, punishment and reward.
In short, the message is: a slave is a dominant's most valuable possession, so think exactly what it is that you want and choose wisely, as the slave's role will reflect on the dominant. In addition, the manual also shows that a large amount of work is required on the part of the dominant to gain and retain a slave.
Miss Abernathy's Concise Slave Training Manual is non-gender specific and as such, can be beneficial to male or female dominants with male or female slaves. Miss Abernathy has done a lot of the hard work in essentially preparing a checklist of things to consider. The volume is slim but is packed with useful information. A valuable addition to any D/s library.
