"Do not yield to the temptation of being weak with her," I cautioned him. "She loves you, but she must also fear you. She must know
that you are not to be trifled with. She must know herself to be always within your discipline."
~Magicians of Gor, page 466~
Denial of a slave's clothing
"Do you like the garment?' he asked......
"Yes, Master," she said. "A slave is grateful, so very grateful."
"It is not much," he said.
"It is a treasure," she said. I smiled. 'To her, I supposed, a slave, such a tiny thing, little more than a brief rag, would indeed be a treasure.
You understand, of course, " he said, "that its use may be easily taken from you as given to you."
"Yes, Master," she said.
"'Do you wish to retain its use?" he asked.
"'Of course, Master," she said.
"'You now have an additional motivation for striving to please," he said."
~Magicians of Gor, page 26~
"The control of a girl's clothing, and many other things, such as her diet, chaining, name, whether or not her head is to be shaved, and so on, are all
within the purview of the master. His power over the slave is unqualified and absolute."
~Magicians of Gor, page 26~
"Binding is excellent discipline. It is often used on this world for that purpose. Restraints, their psychological idignity and physical discomfort,
particularly after a time, placed upon a girl by the will of a master, are among the simplest and most effective instruments of female instruction; they rank
with food and the whip; a girl, under disciplinary binding, once released, is invariably eager to please; she does not wish to be rebound; the thongs have
well apprised her of her place, which is at her master's feet."
~Slave Girl of Gor, Page 103~
"One blow of the whip is worth six months of coaxing." ~Magicians of Gor, Page 42~
Cuffed or Beaten
To be sure, all girls, upon occasion, are cuffed or beaten. This is good for them, and helps to remind them that they are slaves. Beauty in a slave girl,
incidentally, and most slaves are beautiful, for this is the sort of woman that tends to be enslaved, does not excuse poor service. The most beautiful girl must
serve with the same perfection as the lesser girl. Gorean masters are uncompromising on this point."
~(Savages of Gor, Page 259~
"…..would be severely punished……The least that might be done would surely be that she would be stripped, and tied, and lashed. Too, she might be bound, and subjected to the bastinado."
(Note: bastinado: Noun: A cudgel used to give someone a beating on the soles of the feet.)
~Magicians of Gor, page 445~
Denying a slave to look at a Master's eyes
"Sometimes in training, incidentally, or as a discipline or punishment, the slave is not permitted to look into the eyes of the master."
~Savages of Gor, page 258~
Discipline of the she-quadrupled
Girl," I said to her.
She, addressed, scrambled to her knees. She kept her head down. She whimpered.
"She does not speak," said Boabissia.
"She is perhaps under the discipline of the she-quadruped," I said.
The girl whimpered, looking at us, nodding her head affirmatively. The she put down her head, again.
"Oh," said Boabissia. In this discipline the female is forbidden human speech. She is also forbidden human posture, in the sense that she is not allowed to rise to her feet. Her locomotion, unless commanded to roll, or put under similar commands, suitable for a pet, will be on all fours. Her food will be thrown to her, or put in pans on the ground. In either case, she must feed without the use of her hands. She may also, of course, be fed by hand, but, again, will not be permitted to touch the food with her hands. She may be taught tricks. Sometimes these are taught as functions of arbitrary sounds, so that she must learn them as any animal might, without the benefit of an earlier understanding of the words used. If she is slow to learn, of course, she is punished, as would be any other animal. When used, too, it will commonly be in the modality of the she-quadrupled. This discipline is often used as a punishment, but it may also figure in the training of a new girl. It helps her to understand what she now is, an animal totally subject to her master."
~Mercenaries of Gor, pages 215 & 216~
"The choke leash is a useful device for controlling a bound slave. I must follow perfectly. I could not offer the least resistance without strangling myself."
~Captive of Gor, Page 121~
Hood and Gag
"It is all part of the hood, the leather ball, the strap attached at the front of it, and the belt, with its double loop, on the outside, held in place by the belt
loops, at its opening. Some hoods are little more than sacks, of canvas or leather, with drawstrings. The leather ball was thrust, by a thumb, into my
mouth. I then felt its strap, attached at its front, drawn back between my teeth, and buckled behind the back of my neck. The hood itself was then placed
over my head and some tucks were taken in it. It was then, by the double loop around my neck, passed twice around my neck, drawn shut. The hood was now closed about my neck. It was snug under my chin, drawn tight by the belt. The belt was then buckled shut behind the back of my neck, as the gag strap, inside the hood, had been. A small padlock, passed through two rings, the buckle ring and one of the small rings, sewn in the belt, now adjacent to it, secured the arrangement on me. I was locked in the hood."
~Dancer of Gor, Page 73~
Removing a slave's name
"Her name might be changed, or altered, as often as a master wished. Indeed, he need not even give her a name. Changing a girl's name, or taking it away, are
common modes of Gorean slave discipline."
~Hunters of Gor, Page 226~
Shaving a slave's head
"I did not crop the hair about her head with the knife, rather in the manner of shaving it off, as is sometimes done as a punishment for female slaves."
~(Magicians of Gor, Page 125~
"You are going to drink this,' I told her.
'No!' she said.
'Shall I call for a slave tube?' I asked.
'No,' she begged. My grip on her was merciless. The slave tube is a device for force-feeding a slave. It is not a pleasant device. A round, cylindrical, truncated cushion, usually of cork or leather, with a circular hole in its center, is forced into the slave's mouth. This prevents her from closing her teeth on the tube. The tube is then introduced through the circular opening in the bite cushion into her mouth and run down to her stomach. There is a funnel at the mouth-end of the tube. It may be used for such purposes as feeding a recalcitrant slave liquids, such as juices or broths. Some tubes come, too, however, with plungers, so that
semi-solid food, such as slave gruel, or hash, or even damp bread and tiny pieces of meat, indeed, about anything the master may please, may be forced into
her stomach. The girl is usually on her knees when this is done, with her head back and her hands tied or braceleted behind her. Afterwards her hands are
usually left confined for an ahn or so in this fashion, so that she cannot rid herself of the nourishment."
~Mercenaries of Gor, Pages 361-362~
Depriving slaves of use
"Sometimes female slaves," she said, "after their slave fires have been ignited, after the poor things have begun to learn their collar, after they have
become sexually helpless, are deprived of sexual experience,' she said. 'Did you know that?"
"'I have heard so," he said. "Perhaps as a cruelty, to teach them the master's power or that they are slaves, or as a punishment, or to ready
them for a successful performance on the block, such things."
~ Magicians of Gor, page 449~
"No" cried the girl leaping up, but Kamchak had jumped toward her, scooped her up and threw her over his shoulder. She squirmed and struggled on his
shoulder, kicking and pounding on his back. "sleen!" she cried. "sleen! Sleen! Sleen!"
I followed Kamchak down the steps of the wagon and, blinking and still sensible of the effects of the Paga, gravely held open the large dung sack
near the rear left wheel of the wagon. "No, Master!" the girl wept.
"You call no man Master," Kamchak was reminding her.
And then I saw the lovely Aphris of Turia pitched head first into the large, leather sack, screaming and sputtering, threshing Shout.
"Master!" she cried. "Master! Master!"
Sleepily I could see the sides of the sack bulging out wildly here and there as she squirmed about."~
~Nomads of Gor, page 144~
:she, stumbling, scarcely able to stand, he dragged her to the small, square iron box which sat near the whipping pole, and thrust her within. Crouching inside the box, I saw the door shut, and heard the two heavy, flat bolts sliding into place. I then heard the click of two padlocks, securing them in place.
I was locked inside. I could see a tiny slit of the outside through the aperture in the iron door, about a half an inch e in height and seven inches in
width. There was a somewhat larger opening at the foot of the door, about two inches in height and a foot wide. The box itself was square, with dimensions of
perhaps one yard square. It was hot and dark."
~Captive of Gor, page 313~
"….there hung a slave goad, rather like the tarn goad, except that it is designed to be used as an instrument for the control of human beings rather than tarns. It was, like the tarn goad, developed jointly by the Caste of Physicians and that of the Builders, the Physicians contributing knowledge of the pain fibers of human beings, the networks of nerve endings, and the Builders contributing certain principles and techniques developed in the construction and manufacture of energy bulbs. Unlike the tarn goad which has a simple on-off switch in the handle, the slave goad works with both a switch and a dial, and the intensity of the charge administered can be varied from an infliction which is only distinctly unpleasant to one which is instantly lethal."
~Assassin of Gor, page 84
The Whipping Post
"Bond-maid!" called he. She stopped, and turned. "Do you wish to go to the whipping post ?" he asked. This is a stout post, outside the hall, of peeled
wood, with an iron ring near the top, to which the wrists of a bond-maid, crossed, are lashed over her head. Near the bosk shed there is a similar post,
with a higher ring, used for thralls. "No, my Jarl!" cried Pudding. "See then," said he, "that your baking improves!"
~Marauders of Gor, page 103~
Cut off her feet, nose, ears, blinding an eye
"Cut off her feet," said Kamchak, "and her nose and ears, and blind her in one eye---then release her to live as she can among the wagons."
~Nomads of Gor, page 167~
"The punishment of a runaway slave is often grievous, sometimes culminating in death."
~Nomads of Gor, page 169~
"It is the duty of a slave girl to be fully and completely pleasing to men. Were she not so she would be subject to severe punishment, including
even torture and death, should it be the master's wish."
~ Slave Girl of Gor, page 226~
"You are a slave girl," I told her. "No such honorable death would be yours. You would be given one of the deaths of a slave girl, who has not been pleasing.
In Port Kar, doubtless, you would be given the Garbage Death--bound naked and hurled to the urts in the canals."
~Tribesmen of Gor, Page 313~
"Mira was put on her back and her two ankles were bound, widely apart, to two stakes.
Then her wrists were unbound from behind her back and they, too, were bound widely apart, to two stakes."
"What are you doing with me?" begged Mira.
"We are staking you out for sleen," said Vinca.
"No! No!" cried Mira.
The last know was fastened. She was secured. "Please no!" cried Mira.
"I handed my sleen knife to Vinca. Mira, blindfolded, felt the blade in her thigh. "No!" she cried.
Vinca handed the blade back to me, which I cleaned and replaced in my sheath.
Mira, stared out, blindfolded, felt a woman's strong hand take the blood from her thigh and smear it across her belly
and about her body."
