|1.||are you ready|
In BDSM, D/s code phrase for, "Are you in your role?" A Dominant will ask his submissive this just before a scene. If the sub needs a few minutes more, this is the time for him/her to mention it. If the sub's answer "Yes, Sir/Mistress" then the scene is on.
Dom: "I'm coming by in 20 minutes with a friend. Same as last time: take your top off; on your knees; him first, then me. Do not speak unless you're spoken to. Are you ready?"
sub: "Oh, YES, Sir!"
