~Types of Slaves~
"In brief, the word sa-fora means "Chain Daughter" or "Daughter of the Chain". The word kajira, on the other hand, is by far the most common expression in Gorean for what I am, which is, as you have doubtless surmised, a female slave. Yes, slave. The male form is kajirus. The plural of the first word is kajirae, and of the second kajiri. As kajira is the most common expression in Gorean for a slave who is female, I suppose, it might, in English be most simply, and most accurately translated, as "slave girl." In a collar, you see, understandably, all women are "girls." Almost all slaves on Gor are female."
~Witness of Gor, page 102~.
"Few of them have even a smattering of Gorean," he said. "And they act strangely. They beg and weep and whine. One would think they had never seen a slave collar of slave chains before. They are beautiful, but they are stupid. The only thing they understand is the whip," Portus looked down, disgusted. "Men even go to see them sold, out of curiosity, for they either stand there, numb, not moving, or scream and fight, or cry out in their barbarian tongues."

"I suspected the House of Cernus was attempting to create a need for barbarian girls, if only to add variety to a rich man’s Pleasure Gardens—girls of a sort
it seemed it could supply I numbers not possible to competing slavers. The major obstacle to this plan, of curse, was that barbarian girls tended to be ignorant
and untrained ." …..Assassin of Gor, page 111
"All the girls in the Pool of Blue Flowers cost the same, except novices in training…There were dozens of pools in the vast, spreading Capacian Baths. In some of the larger pools the girls went as cheaply as one copper tarn disk. For the fee one was entitled to use the girl as he wished for as long as he wished, his use, of course, limited by the hours of the pool’s closing………..The Bath Girls of Ar….said to be the most beautiful of all Gor."

~Below deck girls~ and ~cage girls~
"How ugly you are, Below-Deck Girl," said one of the girls in a small deck cage. I looked at her. She was auburn-haired, and, like all the slave girls on the Clouds of Telnus, whether cage girls or below-deck girls, stripped; girls are not permitted clothing on a slave ship. She was sitting with her knees drawn up in the tiny
cage. She could not completely stretch her body."…………….Slave Girl of Gor, page 322
"There were small cages, lashed down on the deck of slave ships…. The sailors may, for their pleasure, gaze upon the lovely prisoners of the cages….They are
readily available. A cage door need only be opened and the girl pulled to the deck."……..Slave Girl of Gor, page 317
"He then drew with the handle of his ax a circle, some twenty feet in diameter, in the dirt floor of the temple. It was a bond-maid circle. "Females." He cried out, gesturing with the great ax toward the wall opposite the doors, "swiftly! To the wall! Stand with your backs against it! "Terrified, weeping, then men groaning, the females fled to the wall. The women cried out in misery. To enter the circle, if one is a female, is, by the laws of Torvaldsland, to declare oneself a bond-maid. A woman, of course, need not enter the circle of her own free will. She may, for example, be thrown within it, naked and bound. Howsoever she enters the circle, voluntarily or by force, free or secured, she emerges from it, by the laws of Torvaldsland, as a bond-maids..". Marauders of Gor, Page 44-45
"You may do with me what you please," said the girl, turning to face me. "As long as you are in this room I belong to you." "I don’t understand," I said. "I am a Chamber Slave," she said. It means that I am confined to this room, and that I am the slave of
whoever enters the room."………….Priest-Kings of Gor, page 36
"It is called the Street of the Writhing Slave. It is dark and narrow, and not far from the wharves. It has it’s name from the fact that most renters of, and dealers in, Coin Girls in Victoria, keep their kennels on this street. The girls of the day, designated by a coiled whip pressed against their left shoulder, wearing their neck chains, with the attached bell and coin box, are sent into the streets in the late afternoon and expected to return before the nineteenth Ahn. And woe to the girl
who does not return with a jangling coin box on her neck chain! "….Guardsmen of Gor, page 143
"We heard the sound of a bell, and then, a moment later, that of coins in a metal box. The girl in a brown rag, slave, emerged from the shadows.
About her neck, chained, there was a bronze bell, hollow, flattish, with sloping sides, with a flat top and ring, and a slotted, metal coin box, locked. Swiftly
she knelt before me. She bit at my tunic, and licked at the side of my let. She lifted her head. "Have me for a tarsk bit, Master," she begged. Her hands were
braceleted behind her back."………Rogue of Gor, page 89
"Aulus had chained me at his stirrup. He had used me as a display slave, to enhance his appearance, to add to the effect he
might make when he came into the presence of Pietro Vacci. It is a use for slaves. I was proud that I had been put at his stirrup. In such small ways a
slave may gather that she is exciting and beautiful." ….Dancer of Gor, page 367
"There are various types of "exotics" bred by Gorean slavers, all of whom are to be distinguished from more normal varieties of bred slaves, such as Passion Slaves and Draft Slaves. Exotics may be bred for almost any purpose, and some of these purposes, unfortunately, seem to be little more than to produce quaint or unusual specimens"……..Raiders of Gor, page 15
"She wore a brief, brown rag, perhaps from some other girl who had been given something better. Her hair had been cropped rather closely to her head, as is not uncommon with field slaves. She was barefoot and her feet and calves were white with dust…..
"Your labors seem arduous," I said.
"It is as my master pleases," she said, looking up at me.
"And your day is long?" I asked. "
As my master pleases," she said.
"You are a field slave," I said.
"Yes, Master," she said"…………Magicians of Gor, page 299 and 301
" Female work slaves, field slaves, stable slaves, and such, like kettle-and-mat girls, are usually considered the lowest of slaves. At any rate,
they commonly bring the lowest prices in the markets"… ....…Magicians of Gor, page 305
"When more than one slave girl stands in a relationship of slave girls, as when they serve in the same shop or house, or adorn the same rich man's pleasure
gardens, it is common for the master, or masters, to appoint a "first girl." Her authority is then to the other girls as if that of the Master. This tends to
reduce squabbling. The first girl is usually, though not always, the favorite of the Master. There is much competition to be first girl. First girls can be cruel
and petty but commonly, they attempt to govern with intelligence and justice. They know that another girl, at the master's whim, may become first girl, and
that they themselves may then be under her almost absolute power. In my house I often rotated the position of first girl among my slaves who were native
Goreans. I never made and Earth-girl slave first girl. This is fitting. Let them be always as slaves of slaves". ….Explorers of Gor, page 78
"For example, in a group of female slaves, for example, in a pleasure gardens, a fortress or a tavern, there will usually be a girl appointed First Girl. Indeed, if there is a large number of slaves, there are sometimes hierarchies of "first girls", lower-level first girls reporting to higher-level first girls, and so on. The
lower-level slaves will commonly address their first girl as "Mistress." ~Magicians of Gor, page 123~
"Here and there upon the walls, among those working, were silked flute girls, sometimes sitting cross-legged on the flat stones, rather even with or even below the heads of workers, sometimes perched cross-legged on large stones, above the heads of workers, sometimes moving about among the workers, sometimes strolling, playing, at other times turning and dancing. Some were also on the lower level, even on the Wall Road. "Many of the flute girls seem pretty," said Marcus"……Magicians of Gor, page 118
"Flute girls, incidentally, when hired from their master, to entertain and serve at parties, are commonly unbelted, that for the convenience of the guests"…Magicians of Gor, page 122
~Kettle and mat girl~
"She was sold to a keeper of one of the public kitchens in a cylinder, a former creditor of her father, who had in mind making a profit on her; she worked in the kitchen for a year as a pot girl, sleeping on straw and chained at night"……Assassins of Gor, page 164 "We will need one," said Clitus,
"to cook, and clean, and run errands." Telima cast him a dark look. "Telima, said Telima, "is not a serving slave." "kettle girl," I said. She sniffed. "I
would say," laughed Thurnock, grinning, "kettle and mat!" I held Telima by the chin, regarding her. "Yes, " I said, "doubtless both kettle and mat."
…………..Raiders of Gor, page 98
"This was the position of "Last Girl," which, fittingly, she should occupy, being the newest girl on the coffle …….Savages of Gor, page 240
"It is a beautiful moment when the woman realizes that the man who owns her is her love master, and the man realizes that the girl he bought, looking up at
him, tears in her eyes, is his love slave. Then the only danger is that he will weaken. One must be strong with a love slave. If one truly loves her, he will be
that strong. The slavery in which a love slave is kept is an unusually deep slavery. She must serve him with perfection which would stun and startle other
girls; if she should fail in any way, even in so small a way that the lapse would be overlooked in the case of another wench, or bring perhaps a mild word
of reprimand, she is likely to be tied at the slave ring and whipped; there is a good reason for this; she is, you see, a love slave; no woman can be more in a
man’s power; and with no woman must he be stronger……………Beasts of Gor, page 236
girls", slaves who serve as bait for captains………such work can be very dangerous…Dancer of Gor, page 245 ~Mul~ In the next the expression "Mul" is
used to designate a human slave……Priest-Kings of Gor, page 94
"I looked to one side and was startled. Watching us was a woman in Pleasure Silk, of remarkable beauty, yet with a certain subtle hardness and contempt about her. She wore a yellow collar, that of the House of Cernus, and yellow Pleasure Silk. The slave bells, a double row, were locked on her left ankle. About her throat there hung a slave whistle. From her right hand, looped about the wrist, there dangled a slave goad. She was fairly completed but had extremely dark hair and dark eyes, very red lips. The movement of her exquisite body was a torment to observe; she looked at me with a slight smile, regarding the black of the tunic, the mark of the dagger; her lips were full and magnificently turned, probably a characteristic bred into her; I had no doubt this black-hair, cruelly beautiful
woman was a bred Passion Slave. She was one of the most rawly sensuous creatures on which I had ever looked……Assassin of Gor, Page 150
~Personal serving slave~
"I have been assigned by my master, Appanius, to Milo, to be a personal serving slave to him, to clean his quarters, run his errands, and such." … "He sleeps me on my mat, in the corner of his room, and I am not permitted to leave it until morning"….Magicians of Gor, page 366
"To be perfectly honest, however, ear piercing for Gorean slaves is now much more common than it was a few years ago. Perhaps the time will come when the slave will be a rarity who has not felt the two thrusts of the leatherworker’s needle. The growing prevalence of ear piercing probably has to do, at least
significantly, with its tendency to stimulate the sexual aggression of the Gorean male. Accordingly, girls with pierced ears, "pierced-ear girls," tend to
bring higher prices in the markets… Blood Brothers of Gor, page 336,337
"Perhaps you will be purchases as a serving slave or a tower slave"………"I think I will be purchased for a pleasure slave."…………..Captive of Gor, page 101
"The status of being a public slave tends to be an ambiguous one. What is a girl to do, how is she to act, to whom is she to relate? In such a status she is an
impersonal property, as of a state, clan or tribe. No particular master is likely to have any special concern for her, nor can she, as such a slave, ameliorate or improve her condition, or even secure, to some extent, her possibilities of survival, by becoming, invirture of deep, sweet, delicate, intimate and exquisite relationships, so fulfilling to both the woman and the man, a prized possession of her owner, a treasure to her master……Blood Brother of Gor, page 450
"I had discovered, to my pleasure, that the girl Luma, whom I had saved from Surbus, was of the Scribes. Her city had been Tor. Being of the Scribes she could, of course, read and write. "Can you keep accounts?" I had asked her. "Yes, Master," she had responded. I had made her the chief scribe and accountant of my house. Each night, in my hall, before my master’s chair, she would kneel with her tablets and give me an accounting of the day’s business, with reports on the progress of various investments and ventures, often making suggestions and recommendations for further actions. This plain, thin girl, I found, had an excellent mind for the complicated business transactions of a large house. She was a most valuable slave. She much increased my fortunes. I permitted her, of course, but a single garment, but I allowed it to be opaque, and of the blue of the Scribes. It was sleeveless and fell to just above her knees. Her collar, however, that she might not grow pretentious, was of simple steel. It read, as I wished, I BELONG TO BOSK. Some of the free men in the house, particularly of the scribes, resented that the girl should have a position of such authority. Accordingly, when receiving their reports and transmitting her instructions to them, I had informed her that she would do so humbly, as a slave girl, and kneeling at their feet. This mollified the men a good deal, though some remained disgruntled. All, I think, feared that her quick stylus and keen mind would discover the slightest discrepancies in their columns and tally sheets, and, indeed, they seemed to do so. I think they feared her, because of the excellence of her work and because, behind her, stood the power of the house, it’s Captain, Bosk of the Marshes. …… Raiders of Gor, pages 130, 131
"A seduction slave?" she wept. "Yes, " he said. "He has much increased my stock of slaves."………Magicians of Gor, page 8
"If a free woman would assure herself of her man’s love, she could not do better than, in effect, become his slave. She can beg of him, if she senses in herself the true bondage of love, an enslavement ceremony, in which she proclaims herself, and becomes, his slave. In their most secret and intimate relations thereafter she lives and loves as his slave. If a woman fears to do this she may, on an experimental basis, resort to limited self-contracting, in which her documents will contain stated termination dates. Thus, by her own free will, she becomes a slave for a specific period, ranging usually from an evening to a year. The woman enters into this arrangement freely; she cannot, of course, withdraw from it in the same way….Blood Brothers of Gor, page 101
"I saw her with several other girls, behind the rear court of the Silver Collar. They were fishing through wire trash containers. These had
been left outside until, later, when the girls had finished with them, when the residues would be thrown into the canals. It was not an act of pure kindness on
the part of the attendants at the paga tavern that the garbage had not been flung directly into the canals. I looked at the girls. They were all comely.
There were seven of them there, not including the one in whom I was interested. They wore rags of various sorts and colors; they had good legs; they were all
barefoot. I saw the blond-haired barbarian standing back. She, apparently, was repulsed by the garbage. She did not wish to touch it. The other girls paid her
no attention. Except for her failure to exhibit interest in the garbage she might have been only one she-urt among the others. She was as pretty, and as
dirty, as the rest………………..Explorers of Gor, page 62
~Side block girl~
"Side-block girl," in the argot of the slave girl, like "pot girl" and "kettle-and-mat-girl," is a term of disparagement. It must be admitted there is more prestige in being auctioned from a major, or central, block than there is in being casually purchased from a side block"………………… Savages of Gor, page 107. ~
"Look!" cried Pudding. "A silk girl!" The expression "silk girl" is used, often, among bond-maids of the north, to refer to their counterparts in the south. The expression reflects their belief that such girls are spoiled, excessively pampered, indulged and coddled, sleek pets, who have little to do but adorn themselves with cosmetics and await their Masters, cuddled cutely, on plush, scarlet coverlets, fringed with gold. There is some envy in this charge, I think. More literally, the
expression tends to be based on the fact that the brief slave tunic of the south, the single garment permitted the female slave, is often of silk. Southern
girls, incidentally, in my opinion, though scarcely worked as their northern sisters in bondage, a function of the economic distinction between the farm and
city, are often worked, and worked hard, particularly if they have not pleased their Masters".... Marauders of Gor, page 144
"Female work slaves, field slaves, stable slaves, and such, like kettle-and-mat girls, are usually considered the lowest of slaves. At any rate, they commonly bring the lowest prices in the markets" ……Magicians of Gor, page 305
"She wore only a single garment, a long, narrow rectangle of rough, brown material, perhaps eighteen inches in wide, drawn over her head like a poncho, falling in front and back a bit above her knees and belted at the waist with a chain………. I noted that her throat was encircled by a collar of gray metal. I supposed it indicated that she was a state slave of Tharna"………..Outlaw of Gor, page 102
"It was a tunic resembling that of a state slave, done in the new fashion. The garmenture of the state slave, that of a girl owned by the city itself, some time ago, had been brief, sleeveless and gray, slashed to the waist. The collar worn by such slaves had been gray, matching the tunic"……Magicians of Gor, page 340
"She had not prepared herself a portion, but, after I had been served, had knelt silently to one side, back on her heels in the position of a Tower Slave, a slave to whom largely domestic duties would be allotted" …..Priest-Kings of Gor, page 45
"I am putting you out into the village as village slave," he said. "At night you will be confined in a sleen cage. During the day you will feed on what men will throw
you. Each day you will serve a different hut in the village." .......Slave Girl of Gor, page 242
"Female work slaves, field slaves, stable slaves, and such, like kettle-and-mat girls, are usually considered the lowest of slaves. At any rate,
they commonly bring the lowest prices in the markets ……Magicians of Gor, page 305
