On Gor, slavery is a complex institution, with its hundreds of
aspects and facets, legal, social, economic and aesthetic. It is an
ancient institution with a lengthy history of development. Gorean
mythology even provides a story justifying the creation of slavery.
Long ago, there once was a war between the men and women of Gor. The
women were defeated. But, the Priest-Kings did not want all of the
women killed so they made them beautiful. But as a price for their
beauty, the Priest-Kings decreed that they would forever be slaves to

Long ago, there were a series of wars called the Slave Wars. They
occurred among various cities in the middle latitudes, off an on, for
over a period of about a generation. Though the wars involved
large-scale slaving there were other causes too, like the levying of
tribute and control of trade routes. Much of the merchant law about
slaves grew out of these wars. The wars also developed some of the
standardization of the slave as a commodity.

Goreans view slavery as a natural institution. Slavery has its
basis in the biological differences of men and women. Male dominance is
pervasive among mammals and universal among primates. Men see it as
their right to be dominant. Many women also feel that is true. Female
slaves are normally very satisfied in their bondage. Though initially
they may rebel at the idea, they eventually grow to revel in their
slavery. Feminism does not really exist on Gor. There are very few
Goreans who wish an end to slavery.

Slavery is an important part of the economic fabric of Gorean
society. The business of slavery keeps many castes working. From
Metalworkers who create slave steel to Perfumers who make slave
perfume, almost every caste benefits from slavery. Even Peasants
benefit by using slaves as beasts of burden. Slaves perform many tasks
on Gor, from the fields to the cities. Without the institution of
slavery, there would be a vast economic hole in Gorean society.

The primary thing to consider is that slavery was not instituted
solely to bring pleasure to men. Slavery has many other effects
throughout society. Do not think only about paga slaves. Think of the
many kettle and pot girls out there working. Think of the slaves to
peasants toiling in the fields. Think of the state slaves cleaning the
streets and working in the public laundries. Slavery is a vast entity
with many aspects. Slavery is about far more than just sex.
