I would like to acknowledge and thank Ms. Vera Domenica for her ideas and inspiration in writing this story. The lead character’s name was chosen as a way of honouring her and is not meant to reflect her in real life. If you notice any spelling or grammatical errors please say so in the comments section.
Chapter 1 – Performance Optimisation
Vera is not only the Zumba instructor at the Ultrafit Gymnasium but she is the manager too. She had been working at the Gym for only two years before she was quickly been promoted to manager. At 30 years of age she was the youngest manager in the nationwide chain of gymnasiums. Vera is a stunning, statuesque woman, absolutely beautiful. She is tall and imposing, standing at over 6 feet tall. Vera liked to showcase her perfectly formed physique and l her strong abdominal muscles in tank tops that exposed her tummy. Her legs are slender with well-defined calf muscles that most women would die for. Her hair is white and cut short which accentuates her chiseled European face, her eyes are the deepest blue you have ever seen. She is a perfect example of the modern woman, capable, assertive and at ease when in command She is a high achiever who is destined for great things.
After seeing the effect of the Dream lover chastity device on Alexis’s maid Ousie, (you can read the story here: bit.ly/1XwYC7e) Vera was amazed at the immediate impact it had on Ousie’s performance in the Zumba class. It got her thinking about a problem of her own she had to deal with. Vera had two employees whom she managed who were her sales representatives. Their job was to go out to shopping malls in the area, set up a trade display and sell gym memberships to the public. One of the sales reps, Gloria, was very successful. Gloria was only 21 and had a very friendly outgoing yet assertive personality. She was one of those rare breeds who actually made the most of her membership at the gym, attending twice a day nearly every day. Vera had always admired her self-discipline and the results she achieved in terms of fitness. Gloria also reaped the results of her hard work with a body that was close to perfect. She was slender and very well toned. Her healthy diet made her skin glow. When she was in her gym gear and had her hair tied back in a ponytail, she could easily pass as a fitness model for one of those sporting magazines. When she told Vera she may have to cancel her membership of the gym after she lost her job, Vera offered her the sales rep job and Gloria grabbed the opportunity with both hands.
The other sales rep however was a different story. In fact he had become a problem for Vera and was verging on becoming a liability. Roger was an average sort of guy; he was interested in fitness but certainly didn’t have the physique of a body builder. While he presented well at the interview his results in signing up memberships had been very poor. Vera had to pay the shopping malls for the right to set up her trade display and sometimes Roger would not sign up anyone after being there all day. Vera was on the verge of dismissing him on the day Alexis brought Ousie in and demonstrated the Dream Lover. That afternoon Vera ordered a Dream Lover chastity device and when it arrived later in the week she slipped it into her drawer.
The next day was the weekly meeting with Gloria and Roger. The looks on their faces told the story. Gloria was beaming and Roger had his head cast down.
“How did you go this week Gloria?” asked Vera
“Brilliant Vera, I signed up 3 Gold memberships (Gold memberships were the most expensive and were good for 5 years), 11 Silver memberships (1 year memberships) and 15 Bronze memberships (one month trial packages).
“That is fantastic Gloria! You are amazing! That is your best week ever! That is way above your target. You have blown it out of the water! Your bonus is going to be brilliant!”
Vera walked over and gave her a kiss and then stood back and shook her hand.
“You really are a super salesperson Gloria, I never want to lose you.” Vera continued praising her.
Gloria loved the fact that every week she had been in the job she sold more memberships than Roger and she enjoyed rubbing it in privately to Roger whenever she had the chance. Whenever Roger was around her head seemed to rise a little in an air of superiority. If she heard Roger had a day with no sales she would put on a sarcastic baby voice. “Ohh Poor little Roger didn’t sell anything today, he will have to try harder wont he?” She would then laugh and Roger would turn red in humiliation. Gloria would keep score and remind Roger at every opportunity of her superior results. Roger hated her. She never gave him any help or encouragement and in fact made it worse for him. There was one time when they attended the Health and Fitness Expo together. It was a major event and there were about 100 stalls in the exhibition area. Five times that day, Roger had started to talk to a male customer and had got them interested in signing up. Each time Gloria came over and started flirting with guys. The guys were immediately under the spell of her beauty and all five had signed up with Gloria instead of him! When he tried to complain to Vera, he got no sympathy.
“Rubbish Roger! Gloria told me she could see they were going to walk away from you and she saved the day and closed the deal. I will hear no more sour grapes from you!” Roger learned never to complain again.
Back at the meeting Vera continued to praise Gloria. It was so much better for Gloria when she got the praise from Vera in front of Roger. Gloria was the star and she loved to shine all over Roger! She was beaming with pride. Gloria then asked Roger,
“How was your week Roger?”
Roger’s eyes were downcast and his voice soft.
“Just 4 Bronze memberships for me.”
“I am very disappointed Roger. You can’t blame the product offering. Look how successful Gloria is! It must be you! I wonder if you are really trying sometimes.”
Gloria couldn’t wipe the smile off her face.
“I think it is time we had a serious chat, wait for me in my office now!”
Vera ordered him to her office. As he walked past Gloria he could see her shaking her head and could hear her tut tutting.
“Someone’s in big trouble.” She whispered in her ear and then giggled.
He spent over 10 minutes waiting as Vera stayed chatting happily with Gloria and continued to encourage and praise her. Roger could hear it all and it only made his hatred of Gloria grow.
Vera then walked into her office.
“I didn’t tell you to sit Roger!”
Roger stood up immediately and Vera sat down, leaving him standing before her.
“I have been thinking about your performance Roger and it is really sub standard. It costs me good money to have those stalls in the shopping mall and many times we make a loss having you there! Not once has that happened with Gloria! I tell you I am on the verge of sacking you.”
“Please No Vera, please give me another chance. I need this job desperately.”
Vera didn’t know it but Roger also had a gambling problem and if he couldn’t pay back his illegal bookmaker he would be in deep trouble.
“Like I said I am on the verge but last week I saw something that I think would improve your motivation.”
Roger was desperate.
“Please Vera, I will do anything, I will try much harder, I promise.” He pleaded with Vera.
“I am glad to hear that Roger. For what I have in mind may seem a little…. how should I say…unusual?”
Roger was intrigued.
“One of our clients, Alexis brought her male maid to the Zumba class the other day and showed me an ingenious device she uses to motivate her maid. It is extremely effective and from what I saw gets immediate results.”
Roger stood there, still none the wiser and just nodded.
“If you do not agree to this you will be fired. Understand Roger?”
“You don't have a partner at the moment do you Roger?”
Roger wondered what that had to do with anything.
“No Vera, unfortunately not.” He gave an embarrassed giggle.
“That is good, it should make this even more effective.”
Vera pulled out the box with the Dream Lover chastity device. She opened it up and laid out all the items of the chastity device on the table.
Roger noticed the cage that was shaped like a penis and became a little concerned.
“Do you know what this is Roger?”
His voice was slow, hesitant and tinged with anxiety.
“It is a male behaviour management system called the ‘Dream Lover’. This cage is fitted onto your penis and locked into position. On the underside there are two little electrodes, which can deliver shocks at various levels. All controlled by this remote control here.”
She picked up the remote control and showed Roger. At this point Roger went pale, he wondered if Vera was really serious, surely such things did not exist?
“This should not be necess..”
She cut him off sharply raising her voice.
“Did I say you could speak?”
“Sorry Vera.” Roger shut up and Vera continued.
“There are a number of different settings. The mildest is the summons button. This is a sound combined with a mild pulse that means you must come immediately to me. Then there are 3 levels of shocks, which vary from low, medium to strong. These are used as means to correct any unwanted behaviour. Then there is the canine button, which will keep delivering shocks until you are on all fours and the device is horizontal. The leash button allows me to set a geographical area, which if you attempt to leave will result in a series of grade 3 shocks until you are back in the allowed area. The results are truly amazing. Subjects have gone from lazy self absorbed males to hard working attentive males who are eager to please, pro active in their work and their chores as well as proud of what they do. Training times are shortened drastically and it results in deep conditioning of the mind so that the new behaviours become automatic. It also minimises the efforts required by the trainer so it really is a win-win concept. It truly is the best invention for a male who is not performing. Don’t you agree Roger?”
Roger was overwhelmed and frightened. This sounded bizarre to him. While he didn’t have a girlfriend he looked forward to his quite times alone with pornography and masturbation. Surely he didn’t have to wear this all the time.
“Do I wear it just while I am at work Vera?”
“No No No Silly, it wouldn’t work if you were free to go home and masturbate! You will have to earn a privilege like that!” Vera laughed and shook her head, giving Roger the impression he was stupid for even suggesting it.
“I don’t think I need this Vera, I will be better and work harder I promise, please give me one more chance?”
“I told you Roger, it’s the Dream Lover or you can leave now. You will agree to this or leave. Oh and one other good feature is the wireless control. I can deliver shocks to you as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, wherever you are in the world!”
Roger’s heart sank further. His mind was in turmoil. He desperately wanted to keep this job; the bother boys from his bookmaker would make mince meat of him if he couldn’t keep up his repayments. He didn’t want to agree to this crazy idea but didn’t know what else to do. It was one of those ‘Hobson’s choice’ decisions. Either way seemed bad. He was dithering, humming and ahhing, unable to say anything.
“You have 10 seconds to make up your mind Roger or you are out of here. What is it to be?”
He finally succumbed to Vera’s pressure and said,
“I’ll wear it Vera.”
“This is definitely your last chance Roger, if this doesn’t work you really will be out of here. First thing first, go to the change room, have a shower and shave all your pubic hair and hair on you balls and then return here.”
She handed him a razor.
Vera hesitated before handing the razor over and said,
“It is Ms. Vera from now Roger.”
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
As he walked out of the door, Gloria was standing there. He sensed she had her ear to the door overhearing the conversation. She had a huge smug superior smile on her face.
“I think someone is going to be working a lot harder now.”
She said it in her sarcastic superior tone of voice, followed by a laugh.
Roger went to the change room and did the shaving. He returned to Ms. Vera’s office and proceeded to be fitted with the device. Once locked up, Ms. Vera put the key on her ankle chain, which could be seen between the top of her trainers and the bottom of her leggings.
“Let’s give it a test run.”
Ms. Vera pressed the mild button and that was enough to get Roger squealing and collapsing on the floor. The first time is often the worse as the sensation is so new and alien.
“Get up you wimp, that was just a mild pulse.”
Ms. Vera was right, it didn’t hurt that much it was more the shock than anything else. But almost straight away an intense pulse was delivered and Roger really squealed in pain this time. It was the canine mode, delivering pulses of the strongest charge. Roger fell to the floor but failed to realise he had to get onto all fours to stop it.
“That’s the canine setting Roger.”
Ms. Vera was laughing as she said it.
Roger quickly got onto all fours and the pulsing stopped. His heart was racing and his world spinning, what had he got himself into. Roger was now on edge, focused and attentive. Willing to do whatever was required to avoid another pulse. Vera had him right where she wanted him.
“Tomorrow you will go to the Southgardens Mall. I have paid for a display area at the foot of the travelators on level 1. The deal I have is that you can be there from 8 AM to 6 PM each weekday and until 9 PM on Thursday. I will be setting the leash area during those areas, so I can make sure there will be no sneaking off! Make sure you have enough food and water Roger, hahahaha!”
Vera’s laughter betrayed how much she was enjoying this.
“Every hour you will text me with your sales results. If I am unpleased you can expect a shock in the device. Let’s see how that affects your performance! You are dismissed.”
Roger got up and said goodbye before heading home. It was already nighttime now and he would have to be up early as it was two buses to South gardens for him and he couldn’t be late. When he got home he undressed and had good look at the Dream Lover. He gave it a little tug to see how secure it was and immediately felt a shock! He had activated the penis slap function accidentally! He would have to be careful with that. That made trying to get out of the device not an option. He wondered shat would happen if he got an erection. He turned on his computer and looked at a picture of Princess Kate. It was the little fantasy he had that never failed to get him aroused. As his erection grew he could feel the device contain it, at first it felt nice, like it was being squeezed but soon became uncomfortable and made his erection subside. Instead of looking at things to arouse him on the Internet he went to the Dream Lover website. Topics such as ‘harnessing the male ego’, ‘Identity reframing’, ‘sexualisation of desirable behaviours’ gave him an idea of what he might be in for. Topics such as ‘tongue lengthening for cunnilingus’ and ‘desexualisation of intercourse’ had him even more worried.’ He was hoping if he could lift his game at work this might be a short-term thing only. He went to bed that night feeling sorry for himself but determined to work his way
out of this predicament.
Roger arrived at Southgardens at 7:30 and had to wait till 7:50 before he could go in and set up. There were not too many people around at that time, mainly people coming in to get a coffee on their way to work. Roger was an introvert at heart and approaching strangers put him out of his comfort zone. If someone said ‘No Thanks’ to his initial approach he would give up and not persevere. After a few rejections he would become disheartened and if someone avoided eye contact he would not even say anything to them. He took the rejections personally and his body language looked defeated even before he said anything. Vera had given him books on selling skills and Gloria had told him often what he had to do. He just had to make himself do it. He definitely approached more people than usual in that first hour but alas had not made a single sale. He sent the text to Vera and immediately felt a Grad 3 shock in his chastity device. It took all his self-control not to scream. He turned his back to the public and held on to the rail as he tried to compose himself. The shock certainly had an effect. His enthusiasm went up a notch as he approached every single person he could. He had quite a long chat with one woman and really gave it all he had. It took nearly 25 minutes but she signed up for a Bronze trial membership. At last he had sold something. That hour he avoided a shock. By the end of the day he had sold 3 Silver memberships and 6 Bronze memberships. It was his best day ever! He had earned a few shocks for the hours he didn't sell anything but he felt extremely pleased with himself. By the end of the week he had sold 3 Gold, 13 Silver and 15 Bronze memberships!
At the weekly meeting Roger was beaming. When Gloria said she had sold 2 Gold, 10 Silver and 12 Bronze he was delighted! It was the first time he had ever sold more than Gloria. Ms. Vera was full of praise for Roger. Gloria was fuming inside. Ms. Vera knew her competitive nature and she manipulated the situation to her advantage. For the first time she hardly said anything to Gloria at the weekly meeting. She thought this lack of attention would spur Gloria on the next week and it did! Gloria worked extra hard to make sure she beat Roger, signing an amazing 6 Gold memberships! Roger wasn’t far behind with 4 and Vera was over the moon!
Ms. Vera was feeling very pleased with herself as the memberships kept rolling in and soon her gym was one of the best performing in the chain. At the annual conference of managers she was praised in front of the whole group as the most improved and best performing gymnasium and received an award. Not only had she improved the performance of Roger but also his success had made Gloria even more effective. Vera then started to use the Dream Lover to motivate Roger with his exercise. He was coming to the gym more often and actually started to build a bit more muscle. Vera also noticed a wonderful change in his attitude, he was so much more compliant and eager to please, it was wonderful. It was then Vera struck on another idea. The Dream Lover was so effective in motivating Roger, imagine the effect it could have on other men who had more serious weight and health concerns and were in need of motivation to improve their diet and increase their exercise? Vera spent the next week designing a new program that she would offer through the gym and decided to present it to Gloria and Roger at the next weekly meeting.
Chapter 2 – Product Launch
“I have been really happy with your results over the past few months and it is no secret that the Dream Lover has had an amazing impact on Roger. Not just in his sales results but in his overall attitude and commitment to his own exercise plan as well. With that in mind I have come up with a new program that I want both of you to start selling from next week. It is called Ms. Vera’s Regime!
This product is designed for unfit, unhealthy and overweight men and promises to turn their life around. It is a 12-month total life management regime. Providing the candidate follows all the rules I will guarantee them results! When you sign them up you will ask them about what they want to achieve in terms of weight loss, fitness and other health goals. We will then guarantee they reach the goal that they themselves set. It is not cheap, $10,000 for the year. I only want a small group for the first year, 5 or 6 will do. So you can sell these as exclusive memberships that with guaranteed results. You will not say anything about the Dream Lover when you sign them up; you just need them to give a $500 deposit to reserve their spot. The rest can be paid after their initial interview. All they need to know it is a total life management program with a diet and fitness routine that is foolproof.”
“Sounds great Vera, I know just the sort of man who needs this.” said Gloria
“It is quite a promise Ms. Vera, I am sure we can get a few candidates to sign up.” said Roger
“Let’s see if we can get the target by the end of the week.”
Gloria and Roger quickly had the candidates signed up; it was an easier sell than they both thought. They reached the target of 6 and Vera told them to go up to 10 as she expected some might drop out at the interview stage with Vera.
For the interviews Vera dressed up in her classic business outfit. She wore a black and white dress, with shoulder straps that showed off her strong powerful arms. There was a tiny hint of cleavage, decorated with a beautiful pearl necklace. The dress came just above her knee and with her matching black and white stiletto’s it displayed her toned legs to perfection. Her make up was perfect, mascara, eyeliner and red lipstick. She looked every bit the CEO and oozed power and authority. At each of the interviews she had Gloria attend in her sportswear. This was deliberate; it made the male candidate feel even worse about his current position compared to such perfect examples of fit healthy women.
In the interviews Vera used all her powers of persuasion. Each of the candidate’s goals was a bit different and Vera would tap into that. For some it was mainly about their weight, others wanted to find love, while others wanted to have more energy for their work and achieve more in that sphere. At first Vera would be nice to them and make them relax and open up to how their weight was impacting their lives. For many of these men just being in the presence of these two beautiful women made them vulnerable to Vera’s charm. Whenever they admitted a failing, Vera’s tone became sterner, she would agree and express her disgust. This added to the candidate’s shame and would get them agreeing how important it was to turn it around once and for all. When one of the candidates, the 35-year-old Kelvin admitted he had never had a girlfriend Vera said,
“We can both see why that is Kelvin, No surprise there.” Gloria and Vera then laughed before Gloria added,
“Yes no girl would want to be seen with you Kelvin. You really need this program to ever have a chance.”
The way the women swayed between put downs and pity was very effective. By the end of the interview Kelvin was willing to do whatever it took. Vera thought the introduction of the Dream Lover might scare a few of them off but Kelvin didn’t even flinch. They had him locked up and signed up within 15 minutes of talking to him. One of the candidates, Ben, came with his wife who was most enthusiastic about taking control of the Dream Lover Remote Control. Vera advised her to keep him in chastity for at least the first month. At first the wife didn’t seem to keen and said,
“I am not sure if I can cope with that!”
“It doesn’t mean he can’t please you, its just best if he doesn’t have an ejaculation to get the full benefit of the program. If you look on the Dream Lover website, there is a course on tongue lengthening and giving pleasure with the tongue, you should enroll him in that.”
The penny dropped as she realised she could still have plenty of sexual pleasure herself and she had him signing the paperwork quick smart.
It was a successful day of interviews and by the end of the day of the 10 who paid a deposit they ended up signing up 6 candidates. Only four balked at the idea when presented with the chastity device and got cold feet and left. Vera was very pleased with herself. The rest of the candidates signed the contract agreeing to both chastity and physical punishment if necessary. They went home locked up and were ordered to return at 8 am the next day for the introductory session.
Chapter 3 - Implementation
The next day the candidates entered the training room to find it completely empty. They were standing around talking amongst themselves when Vera walked in followed by Gloria. The candidates went quiet as Vera walked to the front of the room and then began talking.
“Welcome to Ms. Vera’s Regime. Congratulations on making the best decision of your life. From this day on it is Goodbye to the old you as you start on the journey to discovering the new you, the best person you can be. It is going to be hard and requires discipline. In your old lives you have all shown that you had no self-discipline, so we will be providing the discipline for you. Eventually with practice you will become self disciplined. It is essential that you have blind obedience and follow every rule to the letter. Any failure to obey will meet with consequences.”
Vera had also bought a combination remote control, which allowed her to activate all remote controls at once. She then pressed the button on her over arching remote and gave them all a mild shock at the same time. They all fell to the floor, some yelling. Vera and Gloria laughed.
“Get up you wimps, that was nothing! It is the mild, Grade 1 shock only. You will soon learn that obedience is the only option if you want to avoid any more shocks.”
The candidates all looked a bit pale, while it was only the mild shock it was enough to get them worried and they were all paying even closer attention.
“First let me deal with a few Rules of etiquette. You will address me as Ms. Vera and Gloria as Miss Gloria. Secondly whenever you attend the Gym, you will wear one of these shirts.”
Gloria handed out a bright pink tank top to each candidate. The shirts had short sleeves cut in a feminine style and didn’t cover their belly buttons. All wear quite tight fitting and had the words “ I am under Ms. Vera’s Regime” printed on the front and back. They were uncomfortable to wear and they struggled to get them on.”
“This ensures that everyone at the gym knows you are a Regime candidate and will treat you accordingly. Your rules will be on the notice board and if any gym member sees you breaking a rule they will know to report it to me. ”
The apprehension of the candidates went up another gear. They were all then given a pair of tights, which clung to their butt and legs and you could see the outline of the chastity device clearly.
“Candidates must arrive at least 15 minutes before any training session and immediately take up the “Prepared” position. This position will see you on the floor with your knees together, hands behind your back with palms positioned firmly together, forehead touching the ground with the balls of your feet on the ground, not the top of your foot. When you hear me say, “Prepare” take up the position.”
The candidates quickly took up the position. It didn’t sound too hard but after even 20 seconds it started to hurt. Having to have their hands behind their backs really added to the discomfort. Their arm muscles were soon aching and their head had to take a lot of their weight and soon started to hurt as well. Having to curl the foot to have the ball on the ground put tension on the calf muscles that further added to the discomfort. One of the candidates, Michael, who was the most overweight couldn’t handle the discomfort and moved his hands out and onto the floor. Immediately Vera gave him a Grade 3 shock in his device.
“I didn’t say you could move!” she raised her voice at him.
Michael quickly resumed the position and sucked up the pain. He found the strength to continue.
“The second position is called the Listening position. When I say, “Listen” it is the same position but you will lift your body up and look straight ahead. Hands remaining behind your back with palms touching each other. This is the learning position and requires full attentiveness.”
The candidates lifted their body up, keeping their hands together behind their backs and looked forward at Ms. Vera.
“Failure to be in the correct position or hesitation to take up the correct position will result in a shock, so keep on your toes!”
Ms. Vera laughed enjoying her little pun about keeping on your toes. She continued on with the rules.
“Saturday morning gym session is compulsory. You will walk or jog to the gym from your house, no driving allowed, wearing your uniform. As you see there are no pockets in your tights. You may carry your valuables in one of these handbags.”
Gloria then handed each of the candidates a small, very feminine pink handbag. The candidates all looked horrified at the thought they would have to carry such a girly handbag with them, on top of being dressed in the shirt and tights and now having to walk through the streets dressed like that. On of the candidates, Simon, (who fancied himself as a bit of tough guy as he used to play Rugby before he got overweight and lazy) thought this was all going too far and objected. He had close to a one-hour walk to the gym and had to go through a few busy streets to get there.
“No way Vera, this is too much, we will look like a bunch of faggots!”
Immediately Vera gave him a grade 3 shock and held it down of about 10 seconds. Simon screamed to the high heavens and fell to the floor squirming.
“Don’t you ever, and I mean ever, talk like that again. How dare you question me!”
Simon was in shock and immediately regretted his outburst.
“Sorry Ms. Vera.” He said meekly.
You will never use that sort of language or question me again understand?”
Her voice was fierce and Simon surrendered. She gave him another jolt.
He screamed in agony
“No Vera, never.”
His voice was pleading
“And you will call me Ms. Vera, understood!”
More shocks followed as she raised her voice even louder.
“Yes Ms. Vera, sorry Ms. Vera.”
“Bring out the tutu Gloria.”
Gloria brought out a hot pink flouncy tutu, that was over the top feminine.
Simon was horrified when he saw the tutu, it was so feminine. As he slid it over his tights, he turned a bright red in embarrassment. It had a salutary effect on the rest of the candidates, it now made them grateful for their own uniforms!
“Please Ms. Vera, don’t make me wear that, I will do anything you ask, I am so sorry.”
His pleading was meek and pathetic now.
“No way Simon, you must be taught a lesson! Let this be a lesson to the rest of you too, I love nothing more than emasculating a man who does not behave himself! I can make it a lot more humiliating for you, believe me!”
You could cut the tension in the air with a knife; the candidates were all on edge and nervous now.
“Now as to your walk here on Saturday morning. From Midnight Friday all your devices will be set with a program that will deliver a shock if it detects the device is moving at above jogging pace, so do not even think about breaking that rule and driving here! On arrival you will go to the Zumba room at take up the ‘Prepare’ position by 7:45 am for the 8:00 am Zumba class. You will form two rows at the entrance to the room and be waiting in complete silence for the arrival of the ladies who are attending the class. After class your chastity devices will be recharged and then there will be a ‘weigh in’. Your progress will be discussed with the ladies in the Zumba class and any consequences for the following week will be imposed. Now let me hand over to Gloria who will take you through your dietary restrictions and exercise schedule.”
Gloria stepped up and was looking the picture of health and fitness. Wearing tights a singlet top and sports bra, it accentuated her firmly toned legs and perfect breasts. Her hair was tied back in a ponytail and she looked ready for action.
“From now on you must consider food as fuel. It’s only purpose it to fuel your body, you no longer eat for enjoyment. The following foods are totally banned. Chocolate, Lollies, Candy, Cakes, Soft drink, alcohol, Fruit juice. In fact the only allowed drink is now water and 1 cup of black coffee at breakfast.
Other banned foods are potato chips, biscuits and ice cream. In fact any confectionary
and all junk food is totally banned. Smoking is also banned. All cigarettes in your house must be disposed of.”
That was something Joe didn’t want to hear. He had smoked for over 15 years, had tried to give up so many times but nothing ever worked. He didn’t realise this was part of the program. He was worried he wouldn’t have the willpower to do it. Gloria continued,
“At any time myself or one of my colleagues can visit your house for an inspection, that is why we told you to bring in a spare key to your home. If we find any evidence of these foods it will be reported at the Saturday review and a severe consequence will follow. Each week you will be given a diet sheet that you will follow based on your personal goals. Under no circumstances is any other food to be eaten. You will find that all fast food restaurants as well as bars in our city have been identified on the GPS tracking device your chastity devices are linked to. If you even attempt to enter one of those establishments you will automatically receive a shock that will continue until you leave the premises and we will be noted of that via the monitoring system. As a form of punishment we can add entertainment venues such as football grounds and movie theatres to prevent you entering those as well. So be warned! Your every movement is now tracked and recorded.
Your exercise program will also be monitored via the GPS system. We can see at what time you did your runs and what your average pace was. For some of you, your training program will involve weights training. This will be done in front of your computer with Skype on. You will never know if we are watching you at the other end but at any time we can check up to make sure you are completing your exercise requirements. My strong advice is to never risk getting caught, you will not enjoy the consequences, believe me!”
Vera then took over.
“That is right, don’t even think of breaking any rules. We have a number of horrendous disciplinary workouts that will be imposed for any infractions. Remember you have also signed agreements that allow us to impose corporal punishment as well. You will not want a taste of my skipping rope across your backside believe me! Gloria will now give you each your individualised diet and exercise plan. You are entitled to gym access at any time throughout the week and I hope to see a few of you putting in some extra work out sessions on top of your programs. Remember that attending extra classes will be looked upon favourably at your review. At a bare minimum I do expect to see all of you here, on time, in uniform and in the ‘Prepared’ position next Saturday for the first review session. Failure to attend a Saturday session will result in not only an intense disciplinary workout but also further emasculating as well as corporal punishment. You will regret it believe me! You are dismissed.”
The candidates picked up their bags and turned towards the change rooms. Vera sensed they were going to get changed.
“Uh Uh! You are to wear your uniform all the way home. You should be proud to advertise Ms. Vera’s regime!”
The candidates went pale; they were going to get their first little taste of exposure. Simon in his tutu was the most mortified. As they walked out they had to walk through the weight training area. Here a number of jocks were working out and when they saw the candidates they began to laugh at the sight of them. One guy even jokingly wolf whistled Simon who went red as a beetroot and scurried off to his car.
As Ms. Vera walked through she noticed Alexis’s maid Ousie there. She/he was the one who had given her the idea for the regime. He/she was holding a towel and a water bottle as Alexis’s boyfriend Jonty was doing a weights workout. It looked like she/he had extra duties as a towel boy/girl now, it made Ms. Vera smile. Ousie tried to avoid looking at Ms. Vera, remembering the torment she put him through at the Zumba class. Ms. Vera noticed his anguish and just had to go up and talk to him.
“Well if it isn’t Ousie the sissy maid, when will we see you again at Zumba class?”
Ousie squirmed under Ms. Vera’s question, wishing she/he could disappear. That Zumba class was an ordeal she hoped she would never have to go through again.
“I will have to ask Miss Alexis, I do not have any money of my own Ms. Vera.”
“You tell Alexis that you can come any time you like for free, it is the least I can do for letting me know about the Dream Lover.”
Jonty piped up,
“I’ll make sure she tells Alexis.”
Ousie’s heart sank further, he hated that Zumba class and Miss Alexis knew it. The only reason he got to go that time was in Miss Alexis’s place as Miss Alexis had hurt her ankle and had already paid for the class. There was no way Miss Alexis was going to spend any money on him that she didn’t have to. Once Miss Alexis knew she/he could go for free, she/he was sure Miss Alexis would make her/him go. With Jonty promising to tell Miss Alexis there was no way to hide it from her either.
“Tell Alexis you can attend along with the Ms. Vera’s regime candidates, ask Gloria for a uniform and a copy of the rules on your way out.”
Not surprisingly when Ousie got home, the first thing Jonty did was tell Miss Alexis about Ms. Vera’s offer. Alexis was over the moon and thought it was fantastic. Ousie would be going every week now. Alexis made Ousie try the uniform on and exclaimed how much she loved it and how well it suited her/him! She read the rules for the candidates and informed Ousie that he would have to walk to the gym in uniform and had him practice the ‘Prepared’ and “Listening’ position.
Meanwhile the candidate Kelvin had arrived home and was reading his diet and exercise schedule. It was grueling. Monday to Friday

Kelvin read the schedule twice and it began to sink in. This was going to be so hard. So many of the foods on the list were things he hated especially grapefruit, sardines and plain yoghurt. He loved his beer too. Friday night drinks after work with his mates was something he did every week without fail and was the thing that he looked forward to and got him through the week. He wondered how he could ever give up his beloved beer up. He was so out of shape, a run for the bus had him puffing and panting let alone a 60-minute jog every morning. What had he got himself in to? He pulled down his pants and looked at the device. He gave it a little tug, just to see how secure it was and must have activated the anti tamper feature and next thing he was receiving a grade 3 shock. He fell to the floor in agony and let out an almighty screech. Once the pain eased the thought that this would be on his weekly review made him feel even worse. There was no way out of this predicament. Ms. Vera had recommended whenever he was feeling unmotivated to read his goals. He read how he wanted to be attractive enough to find his first girlfriend and to be able to play tennis and feel healthy and alive for the first time in years. It stopped him thinking about his predicament and made him focus on the task at hand. To help make up for the penalty he would incur for trying to tamper with the device he decided he would attend optional gym sessions every night of the week.
Meanwhile Ben’s wife Krystal was having the time of her life with the new toy. Most of Ben's exercise program was in the morning before work. After work his schedule was “Timed Domestic chores with fitness in mind.” By not allowing the mechanical help of things like dishwashers, washing machines vacuum cleaners or even mops it meant Ben had to put more effort into his chores. The added feature of time pressure made him work faster and harder as well. Krystal set time limits for chores and if they were not completed there was an automatic Grade 2 jolt every 30 seconds until completed. She would then inspect the chore if she felt like it (and for this first week she always felt like it!) and give Ben a few extra shocks if the chores were not up to scratch. Krystal was loving it! Ben was hopeless before this at helping around the house and spent most of his evenings after work just watching TV. His new schedule had him doing a good 4-5 hours domestic chores each night. Krystal no longer had to lift a finger. She continued to cook as she enjoyed it but got Ben involved with a lot of the hack work like chopping onions, peeling potato’s, getting everything out and ready and of course all the washing up. She enjoyed the look on his face as she would sit down to a lovely meal that he had help prepare only to eat his bland meat and salad. As to the bedroom, Ben had not performed cunnilingus since their courting days, now he was re learning this skill. Krystal could lie back with remote control in hand, giving him encouragement every step of the way, ironing out all those little moves she didn’t enjoy! After just two nights he had improved out of sight and 2 or 3 orgasms became the norm for her. Soon she wasn’t even showering before cunnilingus, Ben had learnt that complaining was no longer acceptable.
On Wednesday morning Vera decided to call in at Joe’s place for her first inspection on her way to work. Joe was having his breakfast when Ms. Vera let herself in. Joe was taken by surprise and with a mouthful of Grapefruit said,
“Good Morning Ms. Vera”
“Good Morning Joe, it is time for your inspection!”
Vera looked through his Fridge and Pantry and was pleased with what she saw. No contraband items to be found. Then she checked a few other less obvious places like the laundry cupboard. She went into his room and had a look in his bedside table and there she found an opened pack of cigarettes with about 5 cigarettes left in. She grabbed the packet and marched into the kitchen where Joe was.
“What the hell is this?” Vera held out the packet, showing Joe.”
“Have you been smoking?”
“No Ms. Vera, honest I haven’t.”
“The rule states all cigarettes had to be disposed of!”
“I am so sorry Ms. Vera, I forgot they were there.”
“No excuse Joe! You must be punished!”
She proceeded to give him grade 3 shock which made him fall off his chair in agony. She then grabbed a plate and lit all 5 cigarettes, resting them on matches so they would burn out. She placed the plate right in front of Joe and ordered him not to move. As the cigarettes burned the smoke wafted up into Joe’s face. He had been telling the truth, he hadn’t had a smoke since Saturday, and it was now 5 days. The smell of the smoke was an absolute torment. He both hated the smoke in his eyes but his addiction was still strong and he craved to take a puff, as he breathed the smoke it heightened his cravings. Vera went out to her car and returned with her skipping rope. She marched back in with a very stern and angry look on her face. Joe was petrified.
“Few things disgust me more than cigarette smoking Joe! There is absolutely no place for the filthy disgusting habit in any fitness regime let alone one run by me. You were told clearly that you must dispose of all your cigarettes and you have disobeyed. You must be punished.”
Vera paced back and forth, keeping out of the smoke as best she could as the cigarettes slowly burned down. She then got a glass jar and put some water in it. She put the ash and cigarette butts in the water and mixed it around.
“Smell this Joe.”
Joe put his nose to the jar, the smell was absolutely putrid.”
“That was how you smelled when you were a smoker Joe, now put the glass on the floor, get on all fours with your nose over the glass!”
He did as he was told the smell filling his nostrils and repulsing him. Ms. Vera then said,
“Pull down your pants.”
Vera then grabbed her skipping and folded it in half. Holding the rope just below the handles, she gave a couple of practice swings. The rope whistling through the air as she did so. The nervous energy was building in Joe. He had never received even a spanking with a hand in his life. Every hair on his body stood on end in fear. Then one of the whistling air swings made contact, searing his bottom with the two bright red marks.
“Ahhhhhhhhh” Joe let out a yelp as the rope bit into his backside, the end lipping around his side where it stung even harder. Ms. Vera kept going, each stroke with a new spot or worse still an overlay. His backside was on fire, stinging and burning with ferocity unknown to Joe. Soon Joe was sobbing. The smell of the filthy ash water filling his nose and now overwhelming him combined with the pain of the rope. After 12 strokes Vera finally stopped.
“That is not the end of the consequence Joe. Each night for the last 15 minutes before your curfew will go on Skype and kneel in front of the computer with the jar of ash, with lid off under your nose, understood?”
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
The smell was already making him nauseous.
“If I ever see a cigarette here again catch you smoking you or even detect the slightest smell of smoke you will be drinking that water, understood?”
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
“Now put the lid on the jar and give it a good shake.”
With that Vera left him, he was shell-shocked. The cigarettes were a genuine oversight; he had forgotten he had that pack in his bedside drawer. Later that night when he returned from work he searched his whole house to make sure there were no more cigarettes to be found. Needless to say he had learned a lesson.
Paul was the oldest candidate in the group, in his mid 40’s and had been divorced for 5 years. His ex wife found a new man fast but he had not even had a date. He had sunk into a sad miasma of a life. All he did was work, watch TV, eat junk food and indulge in pornography. He had well and truly ‘let himself go’ as they say. In a rare moment of motivation he signed up for a regular membership at the Gym but like so many members were all paid up but rarely found the motivation to go. He was mesmerised by Gloria when she signed him up. When he ran into her again doing his shopping she once again spun her charms and he signed up to Ms. Vera’s regime. He was infatuated and after a few days locked in chastity he decided to go to the Gym for an extra workout. He was pleased to see Gloria there. She had come in for a workout after work too. When Gloria saw Paul she immediately noticed he wasn’t wearing the uniform.
There was no hello from Gloria.
“Why aren’t you in uniform?” Her tone was strict.
Paul was taken aback.
“I thought I only had to wear it on Saturday for the weekly review Gloria.”
“It’s Miss Gloria to you!”
“Sorry Miss Gloria.”
“That is two infractions I have to report to Vera. Give me your car keys.”
Paul wondered why but did as he was told.
“You can jog home, change into uniform and come back. Where do you live?”
“Newtown Miss Gloria.”
“You have one hour to be back!”
Paul lived 40- 45 minutes walk away at a brisk pace, he would have to jog there and back and hurry getting changed. All the way home all he could think about was the consequence he would have to endure at Saturday morning review. He couldn’t get the thought of the beautiful Gloria out of his mind but any arousal was quickly crushed in his chastity device. He pushed himself along, changing quickly and ran back even quicker being so self-conscious in his tights and Ms. Vera shirt. At least he would get to see Gloria again. Alas when he got back to the Gym, Gloria had gone home. He asked the receptionist Susan if she had seen her. Gloria had given her his keys to give Paul but she couldn’t resist teasing him.
“Gloria went home ages ago.”
“But she has my car keys.”
“Why did you give her your keys?”
Paul blushed having to explain what happened.
“I forgot to wear my Ms. Vera’s regime uniform, she made me run home to get changed.”
“That was very silly of you.”
“I need my car for work tomorrow.”
Paul was sounding desperate but the receptionist dragged it out further.
“Ms. Vera’s regime candidates are supposed to be obedient aren’t they?”
“Yes Susan, Do you know when Gloria will be back?”
“She usually gets here about 6 pm after work.”
“Oh No. Do you have her phone number?”
“Sorry I am not allowed to give personal numbers out.”
“What am I going to do?”
She was really enjoying Joe’s discomfort.
“Looks like she wanted to teach you a lesson, shouldn’t you be grateful?
“Grateful? I am a sales rep, I need my car for work, and I have a lot of important appointments tomorrow, my boss will be furious if I cancel them.”
Susan finally gave in and picked up the keys and smiling said,
“These aren’t yours are they?”
“Oh thank you what a relief.” Joe took the keys off her and went and did a weights workout. He was so relieved he wasn’t even cursing Susan to himself for tormenting him! The submissive mindset was growing just as Ms. Vera thought it would.
The next Saturday the first review came around. All candidates were there earlier than they needed to be. Simon was nearly two hours early. He didn’t want to be seen walking the streets in his hot pink tutu and tried to come in before the sun was up to give him some cover from the eyes of the public! They knelt in two lines in the ‘Prepared’ position from the entrance into the Zumba room. As the ladies made their way in there was a lot of giggling and mirth, all quite pleased with the scene of the candidates in such a humble submissive position, honouring their superiority.
Ms. Vera then walked in very slowly between the candidates. She was looking absolutely perfect, her hair tied back and her gym gear hugging her perfect body. She looked strong, fit and full of authority. All the candidates felt nervous before her. She walked into the middle of the room.
“OK, we are going to do things a bit different this week. Ladies on that side of the room, candidates up and stand at the other side.”
Everyone went to his or her correct sides. The ladies were all fit, young beautiful athletic types and the contrast with the candidates who were overweight and unfit and flabby could not have been starker! All the candidates felt so inferior and submissive before these women who were all so far out of their league.
Ms. Vera then walked around with a bag that had the remote controls for the candidates in them and asked each lady to choose a remote. There were 7 ladies in the class today and 7 candidates, including Ousie, so it worked out exactly one each.
“Now ladies if you could spread out and make a line across the room. I will ask each of you in turn to press the Grade 1 mild shock button. The candidate who receives the shock will then run over and face the lady who pressed it.”
The ladies all thought the reaction of the candidates was most amusing as the candidates squawked and squealed and then scurried to face their assigned lady. The ladies laughter and mirth filled the room.
“Now ladies I have a special job for you all. As we go through the routines I want you to keep your eyes as best you can on your candidate. For a minor mistake you may give them a grade 1 shock, for a major mistake a grade 2 shock and for stopping altogether during a routine a grade 3 shock.”
Ms. Vera turned on the salsa music and began the class. For the next hour the ladies were challenged by the intensity but were used to it and rose to the challenge. They all had a natural rhythm and moved with grace and style to the music. The candidates on the other hand were hopeless and most of the time out of time and not doing the dances correctly. The remote controls got plenty of workouts! At one stage poor Simon in his tutu was wriggling his tush but could never quite do it to the satisfaction of Wendy. It was a series of wriggle, buzz, squeal, wriggle, buzz, squeal, wriggle, buzz, squeal and collapse! Ms. Vera was making mental notes of the candidate’s failings along the way. There was so many she thought that next week she would film them to make sure she didn’t miss any.
The routine where they had to pump opposite arms to leg as they hopped up from one foot to the other had the candidates huffing and puffing in no time and soon they were covered in sweat. The ladies by contrast were not sweating at all. Their fitness was so good. Poor Michael the most overweight of the candidates couldn’t keep up the pace and collapsed three times. Each time he received a grade 3 shock and was soon back on his toes dancing. By the end of the one-hour the candidates were well and truly exhausted. It was an almighty workout for them and even the ladies were a little puffed.
“Thank you ladies, well done. I sensed you all enjoyed that!”
The ladies laughed, having control of the remotes did give them a little power trip that they all enjoyed.
“I know what my hubby is getting for Christmas now!”
Said one of the ladies and all the others laughed. Vera then spoke,
“All candidates line up facing the back wall in the ‘Present’ position and lower your tight exposing you backside. It’s time to recharge your devices.”
The candidates took up their position, it felt so humiliating to be in this position let alone having to lower their tights and expose their buttocks. Gloria then came around and connected all the chastity devices to power so they could charge.
One of the ladies walked over to get a closer look; she was intrigued with the chastity devices.
“It’s all right to have a closer look Wendy, they are amazing things.”
She bent down and grabbed Joe’s device and lifted it to see how it all connected.
“Ingenious.” She exclaimed.
Feeling her grab the device and pull it back added more to Joe’s humiliation. They all felt like they were meat in a meat market.
“The first part of the candidates weekly assessment will be to get a score out of 10 for their Zumba workout. I will ask each lady to take in turns to rate the candidate they were scrutinising. You first Wendy, what would you give Joe out of 10.”
“Well he is certainly no Gene Kelly! I think he may have been born with two left feet! But at least he kept trying I suppose. I will give him a 5 out of 10.”
Ms. Vera made a note.
“Simon, or should I call him Sara in his tutu has a lot to learn. His movements were not even remotely Zumba and he fell over a couple of times, I can only give him a 3 out of 10.”
Ms. Vera shook her head and tutt tutted.
“Ben wasn’t too bad, he has some rhythm but still far from perfect, 6 out of 10.”
It was then Ousie’s turn to be scored by Jackie. Alexis piped up,
“For every point under10 its 10 strokes of the sjambok from Jonty when you get home Ousie.”
“Ousie certainly gave it her all, I will give her a 8 out of 10.”
“That’s 20 strokes.”
Poor Ousie, it would be the best score of the day and still she faced a thrashing from Master Jonty when she got home. Kelvin was next.
“Kelvin got it right a few times but was mostly pathetic, he did try though. 4 out of 10.”
“4 out of 10 for Paul too, lots of room for improvement.”
“Michael, Michael, Michael. That was hopeless and you collapsed and stopped trying. 1 out of 10 from me.”
Vera looked very angry. She hated few things more than someone who gave up and didn’t try.
One of the ladies Bridgette who was a perfume salesperson then said,
“They are all bit stinky Vera, maybe I should give them a spray with one of my sample bottles.”
“Good idea Bridgette.”
As the perfume descended on them their nostrils were filled with a very feminine floral scent. This further added to their humiliation and emasculation as they waited there in position, hearing their judgments, exposed and having their devices charge. A shiver ran up their spines when they heard Ms. Vera say,
“You will remain in that position, with your devices charging until the ladies have their shower and return, then it will be time for your performance review. I have all your exercise statistics on my iPad. I will take that, your weight loss and the score you received for Zumba into account to determine what consequences you have earned for yourselves. Ladies you are welcome to stay and watch after your showers.”
All the ladies accepted Vera’s offer and said they would return. It was about 40 minutes before they were all back. The candidate’s bodies were aching from having to stay in the “Prepare” position for so long. First for their weigh in was Kelvin. There was silence as he was called up and walked to the scales. The weight was being displayed on a TV screen for all to see. IT was a nervous walk to the scales, full of apprehension. Kelvin had given it his all this week, attending extra gym sessions every night. His starting weight was 132kg. He stood on the scales, breathing in trying to imagine himself lighter. The numbers flashed higher and lower as the scales settled on his weight, finally it stopped. 130kg. He had only lost 2kg. Normally that would be cause to jump for joy but after all he did he had hoped for more. Vera spoke.
“2kg isn’t much, have you been following the diet?” Her tone was accusatory
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
“Mmmm I would have expected a bit more. Let me see, your exercise chart is perfect and the extra classes at the gym each night, that is good.”
She paused for a few seconds but it seemed like hours to Kelvin.
“I am suspicious you may have broken the diet Kelvin but I will not impose a consequence this week for the small weight loss, however I will expect more next week, However we do have a report of device tampering. This is very serious Kelvin. The device is a crucial part of the discipline of this program.”
Ms. Vera grabbed a tube of Deep Heat from her bum bag.
“Pull your tights down and show me your device.”
Kelvin did so, feelings of fear and vulnerability washed over him.
“Put your hand out.”
Ms. Vera squeezed a generous helping of the Deep Heat mentholatum cream onto Kelvin’s hand.
“Now run that into your balls and through the holes in your device.”
At first Kelvin felt nothing but after about 20-30 seconds the heat started to build. It started out warm but got hotter and hotter becoming more and more uncomfortable. Soon he was moaning in pain. The ladies watching thought it was hilarious. AS the pain peaked Ms. Vera gave him a grade 3 shock as well and he squealed to kingdom come, collapsing on the floor in agony.
“Are you going to tamper with your device again Kelvin?”
“No Ms. Vera, never Ms. Vera.”
Ms. Vera smiled, knowing a lesson had been learned.
Next up was Ben. He too did the walk of death towards the scales. The hair on the back of his neck standing, fear and apprehension filling every bone on his body. His result was very good. He had lost 4kg. He had the best dancing score too. Ms. Vera spoke.
“Good result Ben, see what you can do with a little bit of focus and discipline?”
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
“There is one thing that we must deal with though. The report from your wife mentions that on tone occasions you answered back, questioning her decision, is this correct?”
Ben remembered. He had cleaned the toilet just before dinner and Krystal wanted him to clean it again before bed. It was absolutely perfect, no one had used it and he told Krystal it didn’t need doing. Krystal gave him a quick shock and he cleaned the toilet straight away. He thought that was the end of that, he wasn’t expecting to Ms. Vera to find out. The ladies watching were tutt tutting, shaking their heads and making out like he had committed a major offence. Ms. Vera then pulled out a baby’s dummy and stuck it into his mouth.
“To help you learn to speak only when spoken to and not to be such a whiny sook of a husband you will keep this dummy in your mouth at all times while at home or at the gym this week. Krystal will either tell you to pull it out or take it out if she requires you to speak. Open wide.”
Ben opened and Ms. Vera put the dummy in. The ladies watching thought it was hilarious and was laughing loudly. Poor Ben went red with shame and humiliation. Krystal stood there with arms folded looking very pleased with herself. She had never felt more alive in their relationship; she was getting used to her newfound power and was loving every minute.
Joe was next to make the dreaded walk to the scales. After the incident with the cigarettes and the punishments dealt out already he was feeling worried. He had worked hard all week and followed the rules religiously determined not to get into any more trouble. His weigh in was reasonable. He had lost 3kg.
“I am happy with your weigh in and exercise scores Joe but I am still horrified by the fact I found cigarettes in your house.”
There was a gasp of disbelief from the ladies. As health and fitness enthusiasts they all abhorred smoking.
“You will continue your 15 minutes each night on Skype holding the smelly ash water under your nose but you will follow it with another 15 minutes, with a mouthful of cod liver oil and holding your hands outstretched. Let’s have a little practice.”
She poured some cod liver oil into a glass and made him take into his mouth.
“Now don’t swallow until I say so. And get those arms out straight.”
Joe did as he was told. The taste was absolutely disgusting. He was fighting the overwhelming urge to spit it out. His face was screwed up in disgust and the ladies thought it was hilarious.
“When you smoked you stank Joe, your breath was foul, and this is giving you a taste of your own medicine. Keep those arms out while we got through the rest of the candidates. And if any of you ladies see his arms drop yell out and we can start all over again.”
Paul was called up next and had only lost 2kg.
“Another poor result, what have you got to say for yourself Paul?”
“I stuck to the diet honestly Ms. Vera.” Paul was visibly shaking as fear washed over him.
“2kg is right on the mark before a punishment is awarded Paul. It better be better next week!”
Ms. Vera was instilling the fear of God into him.
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
“Now Gloria reported to me an incident during the week when you showed up at the gym without your uniform?”
“Sorry Ms. Vera, I thought I only had to wear it on Saturday’s”
“IT was clearly stated that you are to wear the uniform every time you come to the gym, I heard Gloria say that myself. It shows great disrespect that you were not listening closely enough.”
“Sorry Ms. Vera, it won’t happen again.”
“It better not! Your consequence for that is that you will be walking to gym every night this week with this little addition to your uniform.”
She handed Paul a pair of pink 4-inch stilettos.
“Put them on.”
Paul went bright red in humiliation before he bent down and put the shoes on, they were tight and he just managed to squeeze into them. It had an amazing emasculating effect just standing there in the heels. Having his freedom of movement impacted like that.
“Walk to the wall and back.”
As Paul walked his feet began to hurt immediately. He had never worn heels and was struggling to balance. He was not looking forward to a 45-minute walk each way every night this week. It was going to be painful and humiliating.
“The other infraction we have to deal with is you failed to address Gloria as Miss Gloria. The consequence for that is that you will have a ‘slave day’ tomorrow with Gloria. You will report to her house at 6 am and do chores for her all day. You might need this.”
She then put a frilly floral apron on Paul, it was very girly and made the ladies laugh more.”
Ms. Vera threw Paul’s remote to Gloria.
“You will be needing that.”
Paul had arranged to go to the Football with his mates from work but knew now he would have to cancel it. He was torn, to spend extra time with Gloria whom he was infatuated with was exciting but that was balanced with major trepidation at it being called a ‘slave day’.
“Cancel any plans you had in the evening as well tomorrow, you are at Gloria’s beck and call until she dismisses you.”
“Yes Ms. Vera.”
It was Simon’s turn to weigh in next. His heart was beating hard in nervous anticipation and his mouth was dry. He hoped to God he had lost some weight and was absolutely devastated to see he had lost absolutely nothing!
“Simon, I don’t believe it! You have not lost anything! You must have been cheating on the diet! You have done the bare minimum exercise and you had a disgraceful Zumba score. You need a big shake up. Obviously wearing the tutu was not enough of a motivator for you. Bring out the accessories Gloria.”
Gloria brought out a blond bob style wig, a pair of 4 in heels. Some dangly clip on earnings, a fake pearl necklace and lipstick. She helped Simon put them on.
“All this is part of your uniform this week Simon. You will be also be going onto the subsistence diet and you will be expected to walk to the gym every night dressed like that, it is compulsory.”
The subsistence diet was only 1200 calories a day and mainly vegetables with just a little bit of protein with sardines. Simon would be hungry most of the time.
The final candidate was Michael. All week had been a struggle for Michael and a couple of times he even cheated on the diet. People at his work brought in fundraiser chocolate bars and he couldn’t help himself. He used the excuse that it was for a good cause to justify it to himself. He was about to be brought back to reality with a huge thud. When he stepped on the scales he had actually put on weight! 4kg! Ms. Vera exploded!
“Cancel plans for tomorrow as you will be doing the high intensity workout in the morning and a 20 km run in the afternoon.”
The high intensity workout was a grueling 2-hour workout involving a series of different activities. Michael would rotate through Body weight moves, equipment based moves, like kettle bell swings, conditioning movements and explosive movements. Ms. Vera would oversee his every move pushing him on with remote control in hand. There would be short breaks only before he would have to repeat each set of exercises, with Vera pushing him harder each time. At the end of it he would be covered in sweat, panting and every muscle in his body aching. The afternoon he had to climb the local hill which was a 5 km very steep track to the top. Up and down twice. By the end of the day every muscle in Michael’s body was aching.
As the year went on the harsh all controlling discipline only got harder. Delegates were pushed hard, punished hard, monitored and held accountable. Ms. Vera loved the control and enjoyed every minute of it. The candidates became more respectful, obedient and submissive which pleased Ms. Vera greatly. The results were outstanding; nearly all the delegates had reached their Wight goals after 6 months and were working on their fitness and lifestyle goals. At the end of the 12-month period every delegate had achieved what he or she set out to and more. More importantly they were committed to keeping the weight off and sticking to a fitness schedule and signing up for Gold memberships. The word had spread and Ms. Vera’s Regime for the following year sold out quick smart. The year after a TV channel did a documentary and followed the group of candidates throughout the year. This led to even greater success and led to Ms. Vera leaving the gym and setting up her own business just running the Regime. Gloria joined her and became her Vice President. Book deals and a remote controlled on line course soon followed. Women were urging their partners to sign up as they saw the benefits flow to women who had their partners in the course. Even dating sites started seeing women ask for men who had completed Ms. Vera’s Regime as one of the requirements.
Before long Ms. Vera was the Chief Executive Officer of a global corporation as her program spread around the world. Ms. Vera won Businessperson of the Year award and was fawned on by the Business media. She graced the cover of many magazines. Ms. Vera became a role model for many women around the world and turned the lives around for many overweight unfit men. Making them more useful to the women in their lives and society in general.
