Types of slaves

-Kajira: this means slave girl -plural is kajirae. La means “I am” so the words “La kajira” translate to “I am a slavegirl.” Saying this is a makes it instantly and legally so.

-Kajirus: this is the male slave -plural is kajiri, a word which is also is used for male and female slaves together. They would say “Lo kajirus” meaning “I am a slaveboy.”

-Remember: Females: kajira singlular -kajirae is plural. Males: kajirus is singular -kajiri is plural. Male and female slaves all together is a plural and also kajiri.

-Sa-fora: this literally means “Daughter of the Chain,” or “Chain Daughter” in Gorean; another word for the female slave. Accordingly En`Sa-fora would then mean “first daughter of the chain” or simply “first girl.”

-Bond-maid: slaves of the North. They call kajirae “silk girls” in a disparaging manner as if the kajirae were merely pets, because they consider themselves more hard working. They are more brazen than the typical kajira and commonly serve feast style from their feet as they go back and forth, but contrary to popular belief they do still kneel before the Free. Kajirae usually call them “high-farm girls” disparagingly meaning they think they are like country bumpkins.

-Thrall: male slaves of the North that tended to work the fields, or tended the fires; manual labor for the Free. They used to be sacrificed by the Rune Priests but have since been considered unworthy for the sacrifice.

-Mul: this is a word of the Priest Kings which means human slave. They are fed Mul-fungus (a tasteless fiborus vegetable like manner) four times a day, kept completely shaved, and must bathe in washing-booths that are described like showers twelve times a day called “Duty of the Twelve Joys.” At their final meal they are allowed a sprinkle of salt on their mul pellets -and often times they may even fight and kill one another for the salt. It’s unlikely most will encounter this word in general RP.

~Barbarians: these are slaves from Earth, thought to the natural slaves as they are from the slave planet. Since most Low Castes do not know that Gor is a planet, thinking of their world as a flat disk, these slaves are swiftly taught to speak Gorean and are commanded not to mention their origins. Instead it is thought that they are from barbarian lands, and are ignorant of civilized society. Some slaves use this word disparaging towards these women. Goreans consider anyone that does not speak The Language as “barbarian.”

~White Silk: this means that the slave is a virgin. That is all; it does not mean she must actually wear white, though white is commonly associated with virgins on Gor.

-Glana: this is a term for virgin; an unawakened girl who has no real concept of her sexuality.

–Metaglana: a girl that has become aware of her sexual passion, and is eager to experience but has not technically done so.

~Red Silk: this means that the slave has been opened for the use of men -not a virgin. It does not mean she has to actually wear red as there are many colors for silks. I cover some of the traditional colors in another class on attire.

-Profalarina: a slave that has been opened technically, but has yet to blossom into a full awareness of her sexuality; may still retain some inhibitions and unsure about her femininity or sexuality.

-Falarina: a girl with the pitted passions and fires of a fully sexually aware woman without inhibitions.

~Tower Slave/House Slave: primarily domestic servants, or even a woman’s slave. They may be virgins, and are commonly belted; but not necessarily so on either count. These slaves exist for the reasons of domestic duties, and tend to kneel the position of Tower a closed knee, wrist crossed version of kneeling.

~Pleasure Slave: a slave specifically trained to the pleasures of the men. Not only as just a sexually responsive slave, but trained and taught, usually through a Slaver’s house or pens, to be exquisitely pleasing and absolutely obedient. They are taught how to walk, speak, and please in all ways and manners as well as in the domestic and mundane duties of the household.

~Bath Girl: these are girls kept in the lavish bath houses on Gor. Their hair is usually cropped short, and they wear nothing but a towel and a chain plate collar starting their name, pool, and price. They are often excellent swimmers, and experts in the Gorean bathing process of the three rubbings -something we discuss at length in Gorean Bathing class.

~Below Deck Girl: These are the girls that are shipped in the hold of a ship. They are shaved to control lice. Usually the most beautiful, desirable slaves are kept on deck. To be a below-deck girl is a derogatory statement.

~(Deck-)Cage Girl: slaves found most beautiful and desirable are kept on the decks of ships instead of in the hold with the rest of the cargo. They are allowed to keep their hair, but are not permitted clothing, and are used to please the sailors; on display by day -hauled out and used by night.

~Chamber Slave: chamber slaves are those slaves kept by the Priest Kings in stone cells, to service the ones who actually find their way to the Nest. Since there are no doors to the cells, scanners implanted in the portals recognize the brain patterns of the slaves and prevent their escape by delivering punishment to any who dare to try to cross the portal.

~Coin Girl: considered one of the lowliest slaves on Gor. She is sent to the street with a coin box around her neck or chained to her sirik, in order to solicit men on the street. She must not return without coins or she may be beaten if she does not return with enough coins to please her owner.

~Debt Slut: a free woman who is sold to slavery to pay for her or her family’s debt, or is kept in the Inn to work as a slave until they pay off their debts or have a benefactor pay them. Many debt sluts are sentenced to slavery and work the mills, laundries, and kitchens as a penal function of Gor.

~Display Slave: usually a very beautiful slave used to display wealth, beauty, chained together to show off an owner’s status. Thought to not yet be a utilized as a ‘full’ slave, or perhaps used to be a Lady of high standing. These slaves exist for the sole purposes of showing off how rich and important their owner is to have slaves simply to be adorned and displayed.

~Exotics: these tend to be rare and expensive slaves that are bred for a specific need or purpose. Sometimes they may even have a deformity like a club foot, or it may result in an unexpected result like elongated ears.

-Draft Slaves: used to pull carts and carry the free on palanquins.

~First Girls: when multiple girls are on one chain, the owner will sometimes appoint a girl to be in charge. This way, the owner does not need to deal with the petty squabbles of the slaves. There can be a tier of first girls in a large house, but ultimately they are only first girls over the same chain or in the same dwelling. She could simply just be the current favored girl, or at other times the owner will allow the slaves to sort themselves out and the hierarchy is decided by the strongest or most clever girl who can be cruel and petty, or intelligent and just depending on the slave’s personality. They are often allowed to wear a talmit in their hair that shows their authority, and carry a switch as they have switch rights over the other girls. Most would never make a Barbarian girl a first girl.

~Love Slave: it is said, that for every slave girl there is a Love Master, rendering her, as his love slave, completely and helplessly abject in her slavery. A love slave is expected to perform perfectly in all tasks and duties. With no slave must a Master be more firm and strict than with his love slave. ” The slavery in which a love slave is kept is an unusually deep slavery.
