Concept and Introduction

The full week of training offered on The Training of O looks very intense. Due to the nature of this site, there's much more written on these descriptions than any other Kink.com site. Because of how deep submissive training can be, this site shows the emotional and mental aspects of bdsm.

 

Porn Talk

From the moment you lay eyes on the episodes' descriptions, you know The Training of O is no ordinary site. Perusing the sub's strengths, weaknesses, training goals, fears, bdsm experience, trainer recommendations, current status (owned, unowned), and disposition (i.e., mashochist, service slut, etc.), you see this site takes training a submissive very seriously.

Each episode is a day in the life of a submissive's training week. Not everyone is successful; one submissive couldn't handle the training, and it was stopped. While these trainers may appear sadistic, they have compassion. This members' area is as true to real life slave training as can be filmed for a paysite.

While there's a lot of sadism and humiliation exhibited, as I stated above, the Dominants are very caring. They wipe tears away and kiss their trainees on the forehead for a job well done. The job doesn't have to be one of accomplishment, but one of showing the heart of a submissive in trying to do her best. I'm a nurturing sadist, and this site showed how those two diametrically opposed characteristics can live in one person. All I can say is, this site is beautiful for those who are into intense BDSM and its emotional aspects.

 

Tech Talk

There are over 50 episodes, updated every week. Archives go back to June, 2007. The average episode contains over 200 photos and at least an hour of video. The zip downloadable photos open in low res (533x800) or high res (800x1200 pixels) and are of very good quality.

Videos are also zip downloadable and come in different formats: Windows Media HD (wmv), Highest Quality HD (mp4), or Smaller Screens-iPod (mp4). The videos I watched opened to either 1280x720 (1.62 Mbps) or 960x480 (984 Kbps) very good quality screen. The oldest videos play in Windows Media (320x240, 357 Kbps), Real Player (320x240, 351 Kbps), or iPod.

My only problem with the videos is the audio; the sound occasionally goes in and out. Because of the nature of this site - dealing with a lot of emotional and psychological give and take of Domination and submission - it's very important to hear the dialog. I wasn't able to on some of them and wish I could have.

 

Small Talk and Personal Opinion

Each submissive woman endures a week of training. At the beginning, there's an interview with the sub about her strengths, weaknesses, and what her goals are for the training. The dominant trainer(s) then work with the subs, albeit in a sometimes sadistic way, to turn these weaknesses into strengths. For instance, Berlin wants to learn better posture, so she's made to stand on her tip toes for a long period of time. Additionally, she has to walk in high heels while in a stockade and is led around by her clamped nipples and labia.

The Madison Young training week is something to see because she puts so much of her heart and soul into it. Some of the things she endures: pussy whipping; servicing another man, while her master whips her; bondage; and so much more. At one point, she becomes very emotional when she thinks she had lost her master. At the end of Day Four, she's so happy to have earned her leather collar that she became very emotional. She tells her master she loves him. My words are too inadequate to do justice to her accomplishments. Suffice it to say, her training is beautiful, deep, and raw.

Conclusion

The Training of O is an excellent site. I don't know any other site where you can see submissives being trained to further their submission and service in a realistic way. The high quality content does an incredible job in showing the intensity and the raw emotions exposed during these training sessions. Updates are weekly, with good sized photo galleries and lengthy videos. Additionally, navigation is very easy. Since this site started in June, 2007, there's not yet a huge archived; however, what is there is well worth the price of admission.
