There are many different ways a sub can follow the commands of a Master. Some subs really enjoy the act of humiliation. Everything from licking toilet seats to being made to stick toys inside of their body are all ways in which your sub can be humiliated. Of course, you will not know if your sub enjoys this kind of humiliation until you give it a try. Make sure you pay close attention to your sub to see if humiliation is right for your relationship. As a Master, it is your duty to care for your sub and give the kind of nurturing needed to make you both happy.
Tears Do Not Mean Sadness
When you force your sub to do something humiliating or degrading, there might be tears as it is being done. This can all be a part of the enjoyment for your sub. Do not mistake the tears for a sign your sub hates what you are doing. In fact, your sub may love the fact you have caused such humiliation that tears are pouring down.
The thing you have to watch out is when the tears are coupled with pleading not to do something. If your sub uses the safe word, this is a clear indication of being made to feel scared. Be cautious not to cross your boundaries when you are humiliating your sub. Just because a little humiliation is enjoyed, it does not mean they desire to be degraded and made to feel less than human.
Talk with Your sub about Humiliation
Before and after humiliation, you should talk with your sub. Let your sub know what you are going to do and why you are going to do it. If your sub has any objections to what you are doing, this is the time to let you know. Remind your sub you are not giving over control, you are just trying to make sure your sub is comfortable in the relationship and your activities together.
If your sub looks unsure or tells you about being concerned, you may not want to start any kind of humiliation. Your sub is eager to please you and is willing to do anything you ask even if it is not something they are into. It is your job as Master to pay attention to the signs and make sure your sub is happy and in a healthy relationship. This is why you talk about humiliation afterwards as well. If your sub shows clear signs of not enjoying what you did together, you may never want to do it again.
