This tool has three parts. The first is First Bite or feeding the slave the first bite of any meal they have with their Master at the Master's discretion and timing. The second is Hand Feeding the slave their entire meal. The third is where the slave feeds their Master. The First Bite can be a type of Ritual as well as a tool. All three types can be a lot of fun for Master and slave.
The First Bite tool comes in two variants. In almost all cases, the Master normally eats the first bite of food before the slave is given food or allowed to eat. In the first variant, the Master gives the slave the first bite of food at the beginning of the meal or puts the food directly into the slave’s mouth. The slave does not get to use hands or utensils for the first bite if fed. After either version is done the slave can eat normally. The second variant is that after the Master has eaten the first bite the Master commands the slave to start eating. This makes a good, ongoing Ritual of Enforcement of the slave’s Status. Their food comes when the Master wishes the slave to eat. This is usually done only when Master and slave are eating together. Doing this when they are not together is difficult at best and unworkable at the worst.
Hand Feeding is exactly that. The Master feeds the slave every bit of their meal by hand. The slave is not allowed to touch food or drink during the meal except as it is fed to them. When combined with a blindfold and Restraints, especially with their hands restrained behind the back, you add in the tools of Vulnerability, Restraints and Sensory Deprivation. Since the slave does not know what food or drink is coming next or when it will come, they also have to wait for the Master’s timing and react to it when they feel it touch their lips.
This can also be done in the reverse. The Master can have the slave feed the Master at their command and direction. It could be part or all of their meal and only afterward is the slave allowed to eat. At that point, the Master can feed the slave the First Bite or even fully restrain them and Hand Feed them their entire meal. Also, think about the old image of ancient Rome and the slave feeding grapes to the Master while he reclines on the couch. It’s great fun especially when the slave is not allowed to touch the grape with their hands.
When Hand Feeding a meal, my practice is to require my slave to wait with her mouth open to let me know that she has finished the last food and is awaiting the next. I usually have her sitting at my feet with her back against my leg but other arrangements are possible as long as it is easy for the Master to reach their slave.
I believe it is best to mix up food or types of food and drink so that there is no fixed pattern of food and drink. This increases both the Master’s Control and the uncertainty of what will come next. The intention is that the slave learns to just accept whatever the Master chooses to feed them and thus the slave accepts the Master's control over them. The problems are the obvious ones of potential spillage so if the slave is also Nude it makes cleanup much easier.
Hand feeding this way can be a lot of fun for both Master and slave. I don’t suggest doing this for every meal but using it for the first meal a new slave has with her Master makes for another part of the Transition between free and slave much more clear and meaningful. It can be used at any time the Master wishes or for any reason. Be creative.
