« Collaring Ceremony »

This part of the ceremony may be performed even if the slave has not been re-branded, as in the case where a slave is purchased by a new Master or otherwise change hands.

The Following is based on a collaring performed by Tarl Cabot in the 10th Book of the Gor series : Tribesmen of Gor

"Assume the posture of Female Submission," He orders. (Ko-lar or Collaring Position, also called "the Position of Female Submission" : The slave kneels at her Master's feet and leans her body back, sitting upon her heels, with her hands extended upward, crossed at the wrists, and her head beneath them, lowered in supplication.)
She kneels, leaning back, her arms extended, wrists crossed, her head between them, down.
"Repeat after me," He tells her. "I, once (her name) of (her home city or town, or of Earth)..."
She repeats this.
"...herewith submit myself, completely and totally, in all things..."
She repeats this.
"...to Him who is known as (His name) of (His city)..."
She repeats this.
"...His girl, His slave, an article of His property, His to do with as He pleases."
She repeats this.
He then produces the collar. If it is engraved with His name or an inscription, he reads it to her, making sure that she understands what it says and means. He places it about her neck and snaps it shut with a click.
"I am yours, Master, " He says.
"I am yours, Master," She repeats.
At this point, any free persons in attendance will typically congratulate the Master on his new slave. When this is done, the Master will usually ask the slave the following three questions:
"Who are you?" He asks.
She tells Him her former name.
"What are you?" He asks.
"I am your slave, Master." She says.
"What is your name?" He asks her.
"Whatever Master wishes," She answers.
The Master will then, if it pleases him to do so, bestow upon the girl her new slave-name, which can be taken from her or changed at any time, according to His whim.
"You are (new slave-name)" He tells her.
"Yes, Master, I am (new slave-name)." She says.

The ceremony is now over.

Once the slave is collared, the new Owner, may or may not, at the discretion of the Owner, whip the newly collared slave. This is not for punishment, or any wrongs done. This is simply because the Free Person can. Some may call it an instructional whipping, to show the slave who is Owner and who is slave.
