Many do not know what proper Gorean protocol is. Protocol, by definition means “an observance of customs and regulations dealing with formality, precedence, and etiquette”. Good manners? Common courtesy? What a concept! Proper protocol and etiquette used to be as much a part of schooling as learning how to read and write. In today’s hectic society, these qualities of human nature are unfortunately overlooked as we struggle to keep up with the day-to-day demands of life.
As a Gorean slave, proper protocol is not only part of this slave's training but her everyday life. In many ways, protocol helps to establish specific boundaries and establishes the guidelines for which this girl interacts with others that visit our House. Protocols are also established through rituals as they express, define, and clarify the conditions by which we stand. This girl always addresses Dominants as Master/Mistress (insert name) unless requested by them to use their preferred form of address, and does refrain from calling them by their given name, as it is not proper for this one to do so. When interacting within regular society, this slave uses common courtesy when speaking to others and refers to those she comes in contact with as Sir or Ma’am as well.
