"i rise to experience my pain.
When i am weak, Master's arm is strong.
~Quoted for dina by Master~
About 5 and 1/2 years ago Master
introduced dina to Gor. But, she was far from ready to embrace the
philosophies. she thought of Gor as online role playing, filled with beautiful
serves and dances. she didn’t see any “reality” in the chat rooms that
professed to be Gorean. And, she, at the time, certainly could not understand
the concept of being property.
As time went by though, she read the
books. Master suggested that dina read the books as if she were doing
research on herself. What an incredible eye opener! A huge difference in what dina
was “seeing” in the chat rooms. Everything that Master had been
teaching her. Everything that she had been feeling since she was a child. It
was all right there, in black and white. dina finally understood that she is
owned, completely, totally. Being Master's slave gave dina the freedom she had
searched for and she could actually be who and what she needed and wanted to
be without reprisals.
To be anything other than who and what she is would be denying herself. she
knew she just couldn’t do that any longer. dina finally gave to Master the
last little pieces of herself that she had struggled to hold onto because for
some reason she thought that she was supposed to.
It took dina a while to grasp all of
this and fully admits that once she did she felt that her very existence had
to be “by the books”. For a few months dina collected quotes that she had
marked in the books and collected online trying hard to make her life like the
lives of the slaves in the books. Yet she felt herself slipping away from what
she had learned. The more she tried to be like the kajirae in the
books, the less she felt like one. It finally sunk in that what is defined in
the books does not have to be strictly defined in her life (dina can be very
slow at times). The books do not define her life, Master does, she
is His property after all, not property of the books.
Master, Who refers to Himself as an
“odd duck”, is decidedly Gorean in thought and in heart. Yet, dina does
not serve Master His coffee on her knees, she does sleep on the floor, but she
also is prone to back spasms, and Master and dina's doctor agrees that the
floor is the best place for her to sleep. dina is not subservient
to ALL men. Master knows that would put His property in danger, or arrested,
and Master is not One to share. dina also doesn’t live in fear of her life
if she should displease Master, and He occasionally indulges dina, at His
Master cares for dina, showing it in
action and saying it in words. He is kind and gentle in His own way. And
because of dina’s love for Him, as well as His training of her, He isn’t
excessively strict, which within the books was a “given” for a Master,
especially One Who cared for His property. There are a few aspects of the
household that dina makes the decisions on, what to buy at the grocery store,
where to buy gas, etc..
To some this would not sound very
Gorean. However, Master’s way of doing, is just that, His way. dina is most grateful for everything that Master gives, allows, and
does dina take Master for granted. Any gentleness or indulgences from Him are
gifts, gifts that dina is most thankful for. dina may make certain decisions
regarding the household, but she does so knowing full well what Master expects
of her, and she accounts for everything she spends or does. As Master has
said, He has control over dina completely, even on issues that He chooses to
allow dina to "decide" for herself. dina may not live in fear for
her life, however if Master were so inclined, He could at any time send dina packing if she is not found pleasing, or for any reason for that matter.
dina is in no way perfect.
However, Master has said that a slave strives for perfection always,
even though she knows she will not always achieve it. dina is
Master’s property and no one can convince her to be any different than how
Master wants her to be. Now that the kajira has awakened she will strive with
all of her being to serve Master as He sees fit.
Master, and I am Slave.
He is owner, and I am owned.
He commands, and I obey.
He is to be pleased, and I am to please.
Why is this?
Because he is Master, and I am Slave."

are the duties of a slave?" I asked.
"She will learn that from her master," she said. "Typically,
she will cook and clean for him, and shop for him, and launder and sew for
him, such things."
I smiled to myself. Ina, since her captivity, and her uncompromising
subjection to men, had proved eager to perform such labors, and to be found
pleasing in the doing of them. In them she found a felicitous and welcome
reassurance, a delicious confirmation, of her subjection. Interestingly
enough, such labors, too, given their meaning and what was involved in them,
were extremely sexually charged for her, rather like the carrying out of a
specific task commanded by a master, except on a more regular, pervasive
basis. In the almost ubiquitous sexuality of the female obedience and service
are arousing. In the performance of her duties she knows she is serving her
master. Her day, thus, can be spent in a glow of pleasure.
"But are there no other duties?" I asked.
"A girl's first duty, of course, Master," she said, "is to be
pleasing to her Master."
"In what way?" I asked.
"In any, and every way, of course, Master," she said shyly."
~Vagabonds of Gor, page 443~
Master desires more than a slave's submission, more than merely her body.
A Gorean Master is satisfied with nothing less than all of a slave.
He will possess you, body and mind, heart and soul.
Nothing less is acceptable."
~Savages of Gor page 174~
"One of the
pleasant things about owning a slave," I said, "is the opportunity
to converse with her, listen to her, to hear her express herself, her feelings
and ideas. One can learn much from a slave. Many slaves, like yourself, are
highly intelligent. They can express themselves articulately, clearly,
trenchantly and lyrically. It is a great pleasure to talk with them."

she does not ask for ease; she asks nothing; she gives all; she seeks to love
and selflessly serve."

with slaves, of course, is much different from that of free women, either
those of Gor or Earth. Their names are simply given to them, as the names of
animals. They may be altered or changed at will. Indeed, sometimes a slave is
not even given a name. The names a slave wears, of course, are functions of
the master's pleasure. They can own a name no more than they can own anything
else. It is they who are owned. Some masters have favorite names for girls.
Some masters may reward a hard-working girl with a lovely name; others may
torment a slave who has been insufficiently pleasing with a cruel or ugly
name. Most girls, of course, are given beautiful and exciting slave names, for
the masters wish the girl, too, to be beautiful and exciting. … Needless to
say, a slave girl, as she changes collars, may change names. Most girls, in
passing from the hands of one master into those of another, will have had
