So, you have chosen to become a sub, or slave, otherwise known as a kajira/kajirus on Gor. This page will assist you, helping you to become a better slave, and give you advise on protocols such as serving, punishments and the like.

The life on Gor that you are placed in leaves you with no control. You are owned and do as you are told or face the consequences. Bring enough dishonour in your actions, and you will find yourself dead. Masters/Mistress will not put up with a disobediant slave for long, so you must ensure that you please and honour the Masters and Mistresses that you serve.

Slaves own nothing. Slaves cannot hold weapons nor any item of value. But slaves can, to an extent, have fun on Gor. Slaves do have names, and these names (nicks) on IRC must be lower case ONLY. There are no exceptions to this rule, and the ONLY time that there might be a capital letter in your nick is when you have been collared. More about that later.

Here is some more information about slaves and their life on Gor.


Slaves wear silks. Nothing more, and quite a bit less at times. Slaves also wear camisks if their Master/Mistress wishes them to do so. Slaves might be ordered to wear nothing at all, and they must imply their state of dress in everything that they do upon channel.

There are two main colours of silks, white and red.

White Silk slaves are for the pleasure of their Master/Mistress only. These slaves have been given rules to follow by their owner, and will follow these to the letter, or face the consequences. A dishonoured Master/Mistress is likely to disipline with the whip first, a more severe method of punishement at the Master/Mistresses disgression, or even death.

Generally speaking, White Silk slaves may serve other Masters and Mistresses on channel with food and drink, and other things at their owners disgression. Sexual favours are to be only savoured by their owner.

Red Silk slaves are known as pleasure slaves. They may service others sexually, as long as it stays within their owners wishes. Some Red Silk slaves may not be allowed to serve food and drink. Again, if a Red Silk slave brings dishonour to their owner in any respect, they can at LEAST expect a whipping.

Masters and Mistresses cannot "see" a slave on channel, so if you serve one that you have not met before, you should mention your silk colour in your service to them.


When you first come to Gor, you have no collar. Collars are a mechanism on Gor that communicates the fact that you are owned by a Master or Mistress. Collars are included within your nick on IRC, and will look something like the following...


Where kajira is your name and Master in the curly brackets {} is the name of your owner, ALWAYS having the initial CAPITALISED. You will learn more about collars as you spend more time on Gor.

One of the first collars you might wear on Gor is the Tavern/Channel collar. These collars afford protection whilst you are new to Gor, and learning, and give you some protection against rogue Masters/Mistresses who might takes you and collar you for their own. Many a slave has been unhappy at this situation, so you should speak with the Masters that have OPERATOR status (and @ in front of their name) as to gaining such a collar. Other slaves on the channel will assist you in your training, and the methodology of Gor, and point you in the right direction if you are not sure.

Tavern/channel slaves wear collars that look like this...


The above example shows the name of the slave (kajira) and within the curly brackets (the collar itself) are the Inn/channel and colour of silks. In this example, the Inn/Channel is KaiilaInn, and the colour of the silks she wears are white. When you are given a collar, you will be told exactly how you should make your nick look.

Once you wear a collar, only your owner can remove it. Sometimes, removal includes the death of the slave. Other times, the owner might be compelled to release you to Free status. If a Master/Mistress does release a slave, it does not always follow that the slave becomes free. If the slave has been BRANDED as a slave with the kef (k, which is used as ONE of the many brands around), that slave may never be free, save by being killed and coming back as another.


Slaves are killed quite often on Gor. It may be because the slave has dishonoured her Master/Mistress in some way. On the other hand, it may be that it pleases that Master/Mistress to kill the slave at that time. Slaves that have been killed may come back as another in the following way...

As long as there are no bans to the slave's full address (Example : *!*@slaves.address.here.) then a slave may come back re-incarnated. The slave must change their complete nick as well as username, and take on a completely different persona to the slave that was killed. Slaves cannot tell others that they are re-incarnate. This obviously happens, in so much as a slave might tell one's sisters and brothers that were close to the slave that died, but Masters and Mistresses should NEVER be told.



There may be times when you come to a channel/Inn/Tavern that uses different rules to what you are about to read, but in general, this is how you should conduct yourself on channel.


When you join the channel, you should ALWAYS ask permission to ENTER. You would do so in the following way...

/me kneels at the door, and asks permission to enter

That is the command to type. Some channels allow macros' to be used, which allow you to press a couple of keys, and the command is sent to channel for you. Others do not, and require you to type all of your messages manually all of the time.

If the channel requires no permission to enter, you may walk in, and kneel somewhere in the channel. Normally it is near the fire upon the furs. If you have an owner, you would be told how to ask permission to enter (when required) and where to place yourself (Example : /me kneels at her/his Masters/Mistresses chair upon the furs on the floor). You will be advised how to ask entry one way or another. Ignore this at your peril.

Special Rules for the kajirus...
Women are not the only gender that may be enslaved on Gor. Men also may face that fate, though in far fewer numbers.The number of male slaves on Gor is very low, especially in the cities. Only about 10% of all the slaves on Gor are males. Men captured during wars or raids are usually slain instead of being taken captive and enslaved. Most male slaves are either debtors or criminals though a small number are captives.

Male slaves are mainly enslaved for economic reasons, as cheap labor. The Gorean philosophy of "natural order" supports female slavery but it does not support male slavery. Gorean society though recognizes the validity, legality and economic necessity of male slavery. It is a more practical decision and not one based on a deeper philosophy. Under these justifications, anyone can be enslaved. Not all societal institutions need be based on an underlying philosophical foundation. Some are simply practical concepts.

Few male slaves are considered valuable and they generally do not garner high prices, even at auction. The primary exceptions are male silk slaves and exotics. The normal high price for a male slave, not a silk slave or exotic, is a silver tarsk. Many female slaves would sell for more than that amount. There are also very few male slaves with long pedigrees. There are few reasons to breed male slaves except as exotics. Nearly any Gorean man can serve as a typical work slave.

The most common types of male slaves are the work slaves. They are usually used on cargo galleys, mines, great farms or as porters on wharves. Many cities use male slaves for some of the more unpleasant labor in the cities, such as in the refuse pits or cleaning the public baths.Most men work on chains with other slaves. In some cities like Ar, an unchained male slave is rarely ever seen.

The most valuable male slave though is usually the silk slave, a certified woman's slave, akin to a Pleasure Slave. They are handsome men who have been specially trained to tend to a woman's needs. They are sold in special women's auctions that are closed to free men. Silk slaves generally sell for higher prices than many female slaves. Most silk slaves will sell for four to six silver tarsks. This is basically a matter of supply and demand, as there are very few such silk slaves on Gor. Most Gorean men make poor silk slaves. There are masculine and feminine male silk slaves. Some women fear the more masculine ones, worrying that such men will turn on them one day, enslaving them. Others secretly delight in that possibility. The feminine ones are rarely used for breeding. Free women think little of hiding their naked bodies from their silk slaves. Many free women though will not kiss their silk slaves as they do not wish to put their lips on a slave. A silk slave grows to know his Mistress quite well and is able recognize her body even when she is robed and veiled. Gorean men generally despise silk slaves and do not treat them well. When a city is captured, the victors often kill the silk slaves out of disgust.

Male slaves rarely have locked collars. Normally their collar is a band of iron hammered about their neck. There is also no distinctive garb for male slaves as Goreans do not want them to discover how numerous they are, especially in the cities. The wool of the hurt is often used for male slave garments as it absorbs perspiration well. In many cities, female slaves must always openly wear a symbol of their bondage such as a collar. Male slaves are exempt from this law for the same reason why they do not wear distinctive garb. Goreans worry about a revolt by male slaves.

Female slaves normally despise male slaves. They consider themselves the rightful property of only free persons. It is considered a great shame for a female slave to have to touch a male slave. Male slaves though are often permitted to have a female slave for their pleasure, especially as a reward. But, a male slave might be killed for touching a female slave without permission. Female slaves show contempt toward male slaves because they do not see them as real men, because they have been made slave.

Male slaves commonly kneel, like women do. They do not sit cross-legged like Free Men. Depending on the preference of their master, their knees may be spread or not. It is more expensive to feed male slaves than females slaves. In many other ways, male slaves are treated like female slaves. They are still considered only property. They must show respect to all free persons and are subject to discipline by any free person.

Male slaves though receive more opportunities to win their freedom though usually only in very dangerous situations. Male slaves might be freed and armed if their city is being attacked and additional men are needed. Few Earth men are brought to Gor to be slaves.
