Hello everyone! We have a topic this month sure to elicit many different
opinions from our diverse Chapter!
How Much Responsibility Does a Master Actually Have for slaves?

“You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Never weak but always strong
To protect you an’ defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door”
Do all slaves want and expect this from their Masters?
Should Masters be required to furnish this level of responsibility?
We are all of us adults. We need to be self sufficient in the real world to
survive. We are valuable to the Household precisely because we come from a place
of strength, Master and slave alike.
Asking a Master to treat us like a child and care for us in every way,
financially, emotionally, physically is putting on Them a tremendous burden. A
burden that over time can cause great resentment.
On the other hand, a Master who just wants slaves to carry out tasks and doesn’t
care about their well-being can cause just as much hard feelings that grow each

offered and received does not exist.”
Beyond this, it is all personal choice. What does each Master wish to control,
what needs does a particular slave have. Yet again, this is all about HONEST
communication. Don’t expect people to be mindreaders, and don’t blame them if
you haven’t clearly explained yourself.
It would be really great if Masters had all the right answers. That they could
help slaves be the best they can be in all aspects of life, and for everyone to
be secure and happy in the process.
The important thing is that positive intent is always there, for both the slave
and the Household at large. if that includes having a slave start a bank account
and be more financially responsible, or to help them quit smoking for example,
So, How Much Responsibility Does a Master Actually Have for slaves?
It all comes down to the particular people and circumstances. Just as some
slaves respond better to a pat on the head than a kick in the ass, everyone is
i think the more a slave surrenders their will to the Master, the more the
Master must be careful to think of the slaves well-being.
