Begging is a tool to enforce and reinforce submission. Whether begging can extend into a form of Humiliation depends on the slave involved and the intent of its usage. The feeling of begging as humiliating can and usually will change over time. It is also an application of the Humbling tool.
In the English language, and I will assume in other languages, with effectively the same semantically loaded word, the word “beg” has a specific semantic connotation that other words, such as “please” when used to request something, don't have. The word “beg” automatically places the person saying it in a place of lower Status in relationship to the person it is being said to. The word “please” has more of a request among equals status connotation.
Therefore, when the word beg is required to be used in whatever connotation, it automatically adjusts the status of the individuals involved. This is mostly a subconscious imbalance but if you add such modifiers as being required to kneel when begging or an even stronger modification with the head literally at the feet of the person from whom something is being begged for, it is much more effective and powerful as a tool. The additional positions beyond kneeling should, in my opinion, be used more for specific and/or ritual instances rather than general usage unless you wish to have that level of a protocol relationship. The Slave Positions also layer with begging to reinforce both of them.
When I train, I remove the slave's use of the word “please” and require the word “beg” in its place. This usually does require them to overcome the common English politeness forms of using “please” and “thank you” which were taught to most people as small children. Vocabulary Control and Ritual phrases are similar tools.
The most common situations in general usage are when the slave is required to beg to be allowed to eat, speak, go to the bathroom, go to sleep, have sex, or orgasm (when used with the tool Orgasm Control, it adds to the power of that tool). Begging can be used with just about anything where permission is required; anything dealing with control over the slave’s speech, body, activities and time.
Whining and similar forms of nagging are the bad forms of begging. A slave should beg once for something and wait patiently for her Master's response unless explicit exceptions apply. Removing the word “please” seems to circumvent some of the normal forms and expressions that can be considered whining.
Remember, this is part of the semantic based tools. It is how the word is perceived by the slave you are training that is most important. The slave can still try to change your mind or influence you about something no matter what words they use. That’s not what is important here. It is how the words affect the slave's thought patterns. Using words and terms that are semantically loaded to the slave is more important than how you feel about those words unless you are the one being trained. Or in a situation when you are trying to adjust your own thinking, and yes, you can do that while knowing what you are doing. Having the slave beg her Master for something does reinforce the mental concept for both of them of him as her Master.
Words can and do change thoughts. Therefore, a certain amount of vocabulary control, especially when added to other tools such as begging is a good way to enforce and reinforce submissive behavior.
