12 Things Every Submissive Should Know

by the world-renowned Jasmine, former slave of Master Arcane

  1. Always be respectful and considerate towards everybody, especially your Dom. Your behavior reflects directly upon your Dom. Make your Dom proud.
  2. Carrying out orders quickly and efficiently is highly valued. Try not to edit orders but instead fulfill the order or request exactly as it was spoken to you. If you do not understand or if there is confusion then politely ask your Dom for more information.
  3. Trust your Dom. There’s usually a good reason for the decisions made, even if it involves something difficult for you. A good Dom will have a vision in mind for what they want for you and sometimes only they will see or know the bigger picture.
  4. Keep an open mind. Try new experiences, you never know what you might end up liking. Be sure to communicate to your Dom about the new things you do like. If you are so-so about something new, see if you can figure out another way to do it so that it is more fun for you and so it still makes your Dom happy.
  5. Pursuing the path of submission is a journey of self-discovery. You will learn a lot about yourself. Embrace every day of this learning and understanding. Some things will be easy, some things will be hard. Always communicate with your Dom about your self-discoveries if they are not obvious so your Dom can share in your excitement and guide you more easily onto the next step in the journey.
  6. You need to control your emotions and choice of words to excel in submission. Don’t lose your temper and pick your words carefully when you speak. Treat your Dom with respect even when you are upset. If you use good etiquette even when upset it will make any good Dom much happier to listen to you. Use the Formal D/s speaking protocols and forms of address because they make a good way to calm your mind and make you feel more balanced. The protocols and forms of address exist for a reason and always help. The only exception is if there is a genuine medical emergency and then do not worry about protocols but instead address the issue as immediately and as directly as possible.
  7. Make sure any and all of your health problems are known to your Dom.
  8. Don’t keep issues or negative feelings bottled up inside you. Use proper slave etiquette and good manners and speak to your Dom about your feelings, or write them down in your slave journal (if you keep one) so that your Dom will read about your feelings and address the issues.
  9. Don’t shut down your brain. It comes in handy when serving your Dom. A good Dom will cherish your intelligence. Speak your ideas using good etiquette. Even if you have the best idea in the world, do not be arrogant about it. Your Dom may not use your idea but a good Dom will still appreciate your contribution and good energy.
  10. Don’t give up when the going gets tough. Find the strength within you. If you are really having trouble, ask your Dom for help. Being a slave will help you naturally develop your will power and become a stronger person. The stronger you become on the inside, the better you will be able to serve your Dom in many ways.
  11. Use your safe words if you feel the need. Don’t forget to use them or try to be tough. Safe words help keep scenes enjoyable for everyone. Safe words are cherished keys of communication between the Dom and sub. After some time your Dom may know you so well you no longer need safe words but if the need does arise, even years later, then go ahead and use a safe word.
  12. Keep your attitude positive and glass-half-full, and your experience as a sub will be more fun and much more rewarding.

      This Is An Educational Site:

      If you are looking for porn you will be very disappointed.

      The Crow Academy style is one of Romantic Domination & Submission, BDSM, and Fetish Performance Art. The lessons of The Crow Academy are based on Tradition handed down by word-of-mouth and obscure texts, then blended & refined through Master Arcane's personal emphasis on extreme utilitarianism. We do not claim the foundations of these techniques as solitary to The Crow Academy, but rather that through decades of Real World trial & error these techniques have been re-forged into a Modern, Unique System that WORKS. Master Arcane explored into the depths of BDSM & D/s, separating the wheat from the chaff so that students of The Crow Academy can benefit from the road map created as a result. It would however, be against the beliefs of The Crow Academy to claim that this style is "the absolute best" or "ultimately superior to all others" as we very much appreciate & applaud other styles of BDSM & D/s that are equally evolved.

      The Crow Academy style centers around Romance & Connection with one's partner, generating the very best Relationship possible in such an environment. It is Safe, it is Sane, and it is always absolutely, mutually Consensual. It is very much about Love, Energy, and above all that BDSM and D/s are ART FORMS to be perfected by the individuals with no upper limit to the Excellence one can achieve in this world, and in the depth of the Connection two people can create together.
