It has been described as the ultimate act of nasty domination: draining a slave of semen before he is punished. As the title Post-Orgasm Stress in Order hints, the slave is forced to ejaculate before his lesson begins. There will be no drugs of lust to ease him along, no eroticisation of his position. He will have to endure it all in the cold, hard light of reality. What follows is an intense drill. With very basic examples Mistress Eleise shows how, as a woman, she has a unique ability to enslave him. It is her birthright. She verbally decimates his ego, plays with his mind, and whips him mercilessly. He is physically unrestrained, yet he stays. He is complicit in his own suffering… but why? This is internal enslavement, the subject of the film.
He doesn’t adore Mistress Eleise in spite of her cruelty; he adores her because of it. He adores her as she claims her rightful power over him, and he tumbles into subspace. The sentence of 100 lashes is stopped short as she notices the tears silently streaming down his face. He has never cried like this before, glassy-eyed, far away – he struggles to understand what she is saying. His vulnerability is at a peak. Mistress Eleise calls the scene to an end. The slave literally cannot tell right from left by this point. After the cameras stop rolling, Mistress Eleise takes him away and whispers words into his naked consciousness, further binding him to her.
