Protocols demonstrates devotion to a Master express through the slave's service. --Blake Stephens

About the Author

Dr. Rubel is an educational socioligist and researcher by training. Immediately after college he taught high school English in South-Central Los Angeles. Returning to graduate school, he earned an EdM and PhD in the area of crime prevention in public schools. After serving a stint as a Visiting Fellow at the U.S. Department of Justice, he formed a non-profit that specialized in crime prevention in public schools. He ran that firm for 17 years. In his mid-40s, Rubel decided to change careers utterly and joined a stock brokerage and future brokerage firm. Within six months, he was named CEO. He ran the company for another four years. Now, retired to pursude his passion as an erotic and fetish art photographer, he resides in Austin Texas. Rubel has been involved in the BDSM scene for a number of years, throwing himself into the literature of the field as though it was an academic study. He frequently attends BDSM weekend conferences.

The handbook is transformational, and I highly recommend it to novices as well as those seasoned in the art of power exchange.

This practical handbook is not only for the service slave, but for the Master and Mistress as well. Both benefit by getting the specific directions necessary to take their Dominance/submission to the next level. This is a buffet of experiences. Pick the ones that suit you and your family. Modify, revamp and use this enlightening treatise into one family's structure to create your own. The handbook is transformational, and I highly recommend it to novices as well as those seasoned in the art of power exchange.

Format: Paperback
First off the book does a wonderful job of explaining various different aspects and dynamics of the lifestyle, which for readers new to the lifestyle will find very helpful. The contents draw in great detail the protocols expected of a slave under what I would call a financially stable, and secure business man. The books also lends a lot of useful ideas for those seeking to establish boundaries and topics for their own set of protocols. The formal settings and aspects help to re-establish many forgotten standards. However I do find only one flaw. For many middle class readers hoping to use the book as a reference for the basis of their own protocols, the feeling may be lacking. The back drop of the book is from the unique relationship between the author and his slave. His dynamics may vary from yours. But the book does offer many wonderful aspects and is certainly worth the reading.

"Protocols" was the first Lifestyle book I'd read, and it changed my life forever. I'd already known I was submissive, but by the third chapter I realized that I was a slave! I absolutely love this book, it is stuffed with information about the dynamics of the M/s relationship. Dr. Rubel allows us see how he has used protocols to create a structure that keeps the M/s relationship alive, not just day to day but moment to moment, over both time and distance. The beauty of this book is that it is written to be a snapshot, if you will, of an ongoing Master/slave relationship, which the reader can use as a spring-board to create your own protocols that work for you according to your individual needs. And frankly, not just within the Master/slave dynamic either; even non-lifestyle folk could benefit from taking the examples given and creating a structure for on-going communication and a healthier relationship all around.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for anyone that is into M/s or D/s relations. It is not a book for anyone looking for an intro...this is for experienced individuals that already have a handle on the concepts, but are looking for ideas on refinement. Don't let the title fool you, this book is a valuable asset to either Masters/Dominants/submissives or slaves either male or female. It is for those who are detailed oriented, mind you, though not a 'how to do' it's rather an insight into a highly refined M/s relationship. Formality and Protocol, keeping and highlighting the essence and aura of what we do is throughout the book. A+ Five Stars from me. Would love to see more/other books like this

I really love Dr. Rubel's work. He always delivers excellent thought provoking material. He states upfront this is his personal treatise and household manual. It's less a how to, and more of an example in detail how an experienced Master runs his relationship in and out of the home. A very romantic man and jewel in the community.

I have had my slave and any students I've trained read this book. There is no other book on the market like it. Gives you a glimpse into his life living as others aspire to. There is a great reference section in the back my slave still refers to from time to time.

Reviewed by Chris Phillips
This book is specifically applicable to persons engaged in or considering an informed, mutually consenting Master/slave (M/s) relationship. For those reading this that are outside of the Bondage Domination Sado-Masochism (BDSM) community the book provides a practioner's view of how this dynamic is lived. For readers who are part of the BDSM community, this provides practical and personal guidelines in constructing and maintaining a vital M/s relationship.
Rubel defines his terms in the introduction and provides enough background to lay a solid groundwork. Rubel states, "This book is my personal Manual of Protocol for my slave." (pg. 19) This manual provides the basis for the book. Rubel's comments, introduction, appendices and reference materials add more body to form the remainder of the book.
Terms such as protocols, contracts, and rituals are clearly defined in the Introduction.
"Protocols represent a set of rules that govern specific actions or behavior in a particular situation. So, there is a `lockdown protocol' in prison and a `test-taking protocol' in the boarding school." (pg 22)
Dealing with the Master-slave dynamic as a viable and vital relationship dynamic in modern society, Rubel proceeds in detail to describe his current relationship and how that can be applied to others' lives. He defines the relationship between himself and his slave. He elucidates how these protocols are implemented and what the consequences are for failure but only as part of the commentary. Protocols and this book are specifically designed to guide a slave's behavior in service to her Master.
One common thread is communication. Rubel sets the stage in chapter 3, but visible throughout.
