This is done as a general way of emphasising hierarchy in the relationship but is also used as a tool for humiliation, with the idea being that the submissive is not worthy of looking in the eye of the superior dominant.
This practice is a mainly psychological activity.
Avoidance of eye contact is commonly maintained through the submissive having to look at the floor, with transgressions normally punished through punishments such as face slapping[wipi]. In other cases eye contact restriction can be enforced through the use of a blindfold.
In the Gor novels written by John Norman, kajirae can be prohibited from meeting the gaze of a man, or even from looking above the waist of a standing man, as part of certain types of training, and some positions[wipi] require downcast eyes, but there is no general prohibition.
