Corporal Punishment as an Art
The women of this female supremacist world use their fingernails to mark and decorate slave men. They gouge out flesh, leaving deep scars.
They see beauty in scarred men.
Some work as hobbyists. Others practice fingernail scarring as a high art. Galleries display and sell men with the most elaborate, pleasing and original scars.
This aesthetic may be rooted in the importance of pain in the lives of slave men. Agony is the heart of slave control. There is also the sadistic satisfaction in seeing the aftereffects of male suffering.
The Mistress Owner in the picture is whipping a slave man. The room is her studio.
Her goal is to cut thick deep welts into the slave man’s body. Beautiful welts. Can she create art with her whip?
Old-fashioned artists claim that nothing can compete with fingernail art. The avant-garde disagrees. This Mistress Owner is a modernist.
She will lash the same four spots on his buttocks for hours tonight.
Whipping bruised and battered flesh causes inconceivable agony. Already his throat is too sore to scream. Hoarse, anguished whispers are all he can make.
Twice he has passed out. Mistress Owner takes a break when he faints. Like an athlete, she needs hydration and carbohydrates.
A serious artist she, will continue with this slave for weeks. Only after finishing, can she judge her work.
Even if she is satisfied, future human canvases will follow. A perfectionist she know it will take at least a year to create a work art worthy of exhibition.
