The Philosophy of Gor

Slave Girl of GorThe book pictured above, Slave Girl of Gor, appears to be a work of fiction, but for some people it is a way of life and a profound spiritual philosophy. According to Wikpedia:

The Gorean philosophy is a philosophy espoused in the science fiction novels by John Norman. A number of fans of Norman’s work have attempted to live their lives according to this philosophy. The most conspicuous Gorean departure from mainstream modern norms is that Goreans promote sexual master-slave relationships. Some of this philosophy is concerned with “order of nature” and the relations between men and women, which may or may not take the form of a master-and-slave dynamic. The majority of Goreans who pursue a “lifestyle” approach often do not consider what they do to be BDSM. However, they are generally considered part of the “kinky” subculture. In that context, they reject the idea of isolated “scenes”. Instead, their practices may be described as 24/7, dominance & submission, and/or Total Power Exchange relationships. BDSM concepts of servitude and slavery typically play a key role in Gorean dynamics.
