<<<<<<<<<<There are times in a kajira’s (Gorean word for slave) life where she is not only humbled but also excited to be able
to tell not only her story but also that of the Gorean Life. This is one of those times. Master Walter Balazic (Gorean girls call all Men Master) asked
kindra to write a monthly article about what is going on in Turia and Gor on Osgrid. What a better introduction to Gor then to talk about a real life
experience. The name kindra was given to this girl when she was collared to her Master (Rsvp) on June 25, 1997 and a last name of Turian added when we came to the OSGrid. Kindra hopes readers will give suggestions to make this a fun read but then again a learning experience for everyone.>>>>>>>>>>>>
~SLAVES SERVING OFFLINE~
One of the common questions that we get as Gorean followers is why follow some stupid science fiction books that you can’t take into your real life and
that were not written that well? It is true, we can’t chop off people’s heads or ride tarns- except in places like the OSGrid, but there
are principals of Gor that we can all embrace that make sense and follow what Master says is the “natural order”. Goreans principles are about honor and
judging others by how they act. There is a sense of chivalry about Gor as well when you get to know the books. Goreans believe in possessing their girls
in the truest sense- mind, body and heart.. Sounds sexy… doesn’t it? It IS!!! To illustrate this kindra would like to tell you about some special friends.
Kindra came to Gor in Jan of 1997 when she was asked to visit while in a D/s channel on efnet called Le Chateau. The first Gorean channel as they were
called that she visited and became a part of was a place called "Castles in the Skye" on dalnet on IRC (Internet Chat Relay) where she met some people in her
own real life city that were practicing a combination of Gor and D/s. Master Strummer. was one of those special people. Master
Strummer is a musician- thus his name hailing from the city of Ko-ro-ba but lived in the city of Turia for much of the time we have known him. (at
least in his Gorean life) We became great friends and shared many meals and fun times. Master Strummer writes music using instruments that are
similar to what you would find in the Gorean books and in fact you can listen to some of his music if you go to the Turian web site – www.turia.weebly.com
(sorry about the shameless plug). He also belongs to a group in our real life city that is D/s inspired. This is a large group and the people there
have shunned the Goreans much like you find in many of the on line environments. He asked some of this group if they might be interested in
learning more about Gor before they passed judgment, and because he wanted to start a real life Gorean group in our city. 19 people decided to partake
in 6 mos of lessons – meeting in real life 2 hours a month. They studied, they practiced, read the books and then Sunday November 18th it all
culminated into a real life Gorean dinner. Kindra was asked to attend. WOW!!! Kindra’s Master said she could go, even though he was
unable to attend. Kindra could not serve but just kneel before the Men (the Masters)and watch. It was to say the least exciting, stimulating and
a little intimidating. It reinforced kindra’s love of Gor. Please allow kindra to tell you about it.
Entering Master Strummer’s home she went down to the “dungeon” area where it was all decorated with furs and cushions and then there was a table shaped in an L for the 6 attending Masters to sit. On the back of the walls hung the shield of Ko-ro-ba and a sword. There were whips and chains on
another wall. A serving table that quickly filled up with treats, drinks and the hearty meal. In the opposite corner there were all the instruments of a Gorean style band.
Kindra knelt (they did allow kindra to sit) in the furs observing.
How did they dress? The Masters (6 of them) had chosen a caste and a city to represent and wore caste colored tunics or clothes hand made for them –
tunics in the colors of an entertainer, a scribe, a warrior and others. Some of them had a mug with an initial engraved or carved in it for their drinks
or a belt for their knife. (Goreans pick a caste typically and their clothing reflects their caste). The girls (13 of them) were dressed in
silks that they had made themselves. They looked amazing. Each of the girl’s silks were similar to the city or geography where their Masters had
chosen to call home. For example, one girl was in more of a leather type wrap because her Master was from the Tuchucks out in the plains, living in wagon
camps. Another was more fancy very silken and flowing because her Master was from the city of Ar. Kindra was so awestruck by how they looked and their
actions that evening.
How did the girls serve the men? -Goreans serve with ceremony and the girls used this ceremonious serve beautifully. Kindra could tell they practiced
this over and over. The girl would kneel in “nadu” and then beg the Master to be allowed to serve serve him. Her head was bowed in submission and
respect, the palms of her hands face up lying against her knees signifying a willingness or openness to serve. She would bring the Masters platters of
cheeses and other delicacies. It was done excellently like they really did this every day in their life.
Gorean kajirae are not allowed to just blurt out things usually- it is of course dependent on the occasion and the Master but kindra in this case was
allowed to speak freely to the Masters. They asked her some questions, for example "what was the hardest part of being a real life Gorean kajira?"
"What was the best part?" Kindra asked them the some of the same questions and in particular questions about this experience and how it compares to
what they knew before. They responded with that they liked the ideas of the books where honor of Men was very important and that a Man was judged by
his actions. They liked the community aspect of Gor. They liked the differences of owning women in comparison to D/s ownership. They liked the ceremony and how girls couldn’t just come out of character easily. They also like the incorporation of a caste and the representation of home. They liked the
tribal aspect of the experience.
Now let's get to the important stuff- the FEAST! Many of our everyday foods have Gorean equivalent names, bosk is a type of beef, vulo a
domesticated fowl for example. These were all served and roasted to perfection in "manly" portions. Drinks are the same, for example black
wine would be coffee and tea is just tea. All of which were served. There was a fruit desert made from pears, which you might find in the books and
different types of greens. The girls actually made sa-tarna-bread which to kindra was unbelievable to do and they talked about how they had to
experiment with it to get it as accurate as they could to what was in the books. It was a feast for.. well.. a MASTER! Amazing!
Goreans love laughter and entertainment so there just had to be some! There was a speech and introduction and then Master Strummer and his band, which
consisted of some of the kijirae played some really great music, all written by Master Strummer. Listening to the music one could imagine yourself at a
real Gorean feast and party. There was a poetry reading by one of the Masters and then of course dancing!!!!!! kajira dance is
meant to please men, it is akin to belly dancing and several of the dances done were right from the books. A scarf dance with colorful scarves draped and
swirling.. A chain dance which was very sexy and then a submission dance. Finally, after they girls completed their service and cleaned up they were
allowed to come to the furs and converse with the Masters. It was a great night.
In the end the comments that were made from the attendees were quite positive. Here some examples: “While I still cannot quite bring
myself to say resolutely "I am Gorean," I can definitely say that I already adhere to many of the principles of Gorean Protocol. They aren't much different
than what one would expect of a human being. Dignity, honor, having a purpose and direction in life, standing behind one's word, honesty, humility,
recognizing that there is a social dynamic that is naturally D/s, and deferring judgment and perspective to those more qualifying then one's self.” And “It
definitely lent itself to the visual themes of the subject matter. :) But I think it helped us tap into one of the fundamental and core aspects of being a
human, particularly a co-existing and productively contributing human.” And finally- “The evening brought validation for me, a sense of belonging. I can
walk into a Church and know through familiarity, feelings, history and emotions that I belong, it is a part of me.” Don’t be surprised if you see some of
these great people wandering around Osgrid in the near future!
