“Melina, now a naked slave in sleen collar, was ordered forth on her hands and knees. A sleen leash was attached to her collar and she was marched, as a she-sleen, crawling, abused, to the rape-rack.”
[Slave Girl of Gor, P238]
The she-quadruped modality, also known as the she-sleen modality, is actually a form of behaviour the slave must adopt and maintain until released from doing so. In the books, the actual command of she-sleen as a position does not appear to be given. However, as the quote from Slave Girl of Gor shows, a position of being on all fours seems to be associated with it. Online, the popular pose for she-sleen position, is for the girl to be on all fours, the knees spread wide apart, her elbows bent so that forearms press flat to the ground, her head turned left with cheek flattened to the floor, her hands either side of her head.
This girl’s mindset, as requested by Master:
This is very degrading and debasing position, especially the online version, but also an arousing one as it leaves no doubt at all in my mind that i am a slave, an animal and beast for the sole purpose of waiting upon the pleasure of Men in whatever way they wish to find it from me. As a modality it is less humiliating, but still very debasing, it strips off the veneer of humanity that still protected me to an extent, and reduced me totally to being no more then an obedient pet or work beast. In this modality i must perform even the most debasing of acts with promptness and perfection and absolute obedience. It is more then just a feeling of a vulnerability.. it is a feeling of being transformed. It is terrifying and liberating, all at once
Master’s mindset, viewing the girl (Argos-FoS-CA):
A slave, in the sense of Gor as well as online needs to feel her slavery; the reward comes from the sensuality of the position, the discipline it enforces on the slave, and the knowledge that only a Master can hold her in this position. Visually this is not one of my favorite positions; but as a training tool it can be used most effectively both as discipline and as a reward. One does this simply by deciding what use the slave is serving at this particular moment.
A slave may be made to suffer the modality of the she-quadruped to learn she is naught but a beast or the discipline of the she-quadruped may be used as a punishment. This is a complex order as more than one posture or response is expected with such an order. The slave is forbidden to rise to her feet or move in a bipedal manner. The slave may not use her hands to grasp things. The slave is also forbidden human speech and may only grunt or whimper to communicate.
"'Girl,' I said to her. She, addressed, scrambled to her knees. She kept her head down. She whimpered. 'She does not speak,' said Boabissia. 'She is perhaps under the discipline of the she-quadruped,' I said. The girl whimpered, looking at us, nodding her head affirmatively. Then she put down her head, again. 'Oh,' said Boabissia. In this discipline the female is forbidden human speech. She is also forbidden human posture, in the sense that she is not allowed to rise to her feet. Her locomotion, unless commanded to roll, or put under similar commands, suitable for a pet, will be on all fours. Her food will be thrown to her, or put in pans on the ground. In either case, she must feed without the use of her hands. She may also, of course, be fed by hand, but, again, will not be permitted to touch the food with her hands. She may be taught tricks. Sometimes these are taught as functions of arbitrary sounds, so that she must learn them as any animal might, without the benefit of an earlier understanding of the words used. If she is slow to learn, of course, she is punished, as would be any other animal. When used, too, it will commonly be in the modality of the she-quadruped. This discipline is often used as a punishment, but it may also figure in the training of a new girl. It helps her to understand what she now is, an animal totally subject to her master." (Mercenaries of Gor, pages 215-216)A slave subjected to this form will soon become creative in their expression and express their longing to serve in the more full sense of slavery as the human animal she is rather than as a simple beast.
"After some time, sometimes as little as a few Ahn, in this discipline, she begs mutely, pleadingly, as eloquently as she can, to be permitted to serve her master in fashions more typical of the normal female slave, fashions in which her bondage, because of the greater complexities and latitudes of speech and posture, for example, dance, beginning at least on her feet, and song, may be even more deliciously complete and pleasing to him. To make certain that there are no possible confusions or misunderstandings involved in such cases the master usually gives the female a brief opportunity to speak, usually only a few Ihn, in which she must make her pleas, hoping to win his favor. If he is not satisfied with her pleas, of course, she is returned promptly to the former discipline. Too, for wasting his time, she might be exposed to other disciplines, as well, usually the lash."
