Ko_Lar also called “the Position of Female Submission”: the slave kneels before the Master, back on her heels, arms extended, head down between her arms, wrists crossed as though for binding.
“Then, to my astonishment, the daughter of the Ubar Marlenus, daughter of the Ubar of Ar, knelt before me, a simple warrior of Ko-ro-ba, and lowered her head, lifting and extending her arms, the wrists crossed. It was that same simple ceremony that Sana had performed before me in the chamber of my father, back at Ko-ro-ba – the submission of the captive female. Without raising her eyes from the ground, the daughter of the Ubar said in a clear, distinct voice: ‘I submit myself.’ Later I wished that I had had binding fibre to lash her so innocently proffered wrists. I was speechless for a moment, but then, remembering that harsh Gorean custom required me either to accept the submission or slay the captive, I took her wrists in my hands and said, ‘I accept your submission.’ I then lifted her gently to her feet.”
