Male slaves of Gor
Kajirus Part – One
Women are not the only gender that may be enslaved on Gor. Men also may face that fate, though in far fewer numbers.The number of male slaves on Gor is very low, especially in the cities. Only about 10% of all the slaves on Gor are males.
The kajirus or male slave on Gor
In the Gor science-fiction novel series by author John Norman, the word kajirus means “male slave” in the Gorean language. The Latin-style plural form of this word is kajiri. There are far fewer kajiri than kajirae (female slaves) on the planet Gor, since Gorean men can only rarely be effectively “tamed”, so that most male slaves are considered inherently slightly dangerous, and have little value other than as unskilled heavy labor which must often be kept under armed guard. Men conquered in war who are not left free are more often killed than enslaved, while women in the same situation are almost always enslaved (since kajirae are a readily-negotiable commodity, among other reasons).
A male slave kept by a woman owner for bedroom duties is a “silk slave” (while most male slaves on Gor are used for hard labor in work gangs). When a free woman makes use of a kajirus sexually, he is often chained so that he is unable to hold her in his arms — since allowing this would be considered to add a note of male domination to the lovemaking. Some free women carefully avoid kissing a kajirus when making sexual use of him, since they would consider it degrading to soil their lips by touching them to the body of a mere slave. Note that only a small minority of rich free women on Gor own silk slaves, and (in contrast to the usual situation with free men and kajirae) it is often not very easy or convenient for a free woman to obtain the sexual use of a kajirus whom she does not personally own (in the city of Ar, the largest city of known Gor, it is strictly forbidden by law). Silk slaves are generally despised by free men on Gor, and their type of slavery is often considered to be rather unnatural.
The following is a short list for male slave chores in a panther camp.

Role play of a Serve
After a long day of hunting by him self he looks around to see if any one is home. Not seeing any one he runs back and picks up the large tabuk that he downed.. As he brings it back into the camp he ties a peace of rope around its hind feet and lifts it up in the air and with the other end of the rope and he he ties it to a different tree. He pulls out his nice and sharp knife and then cuts the throat of the fine tabuk letting the blood drain out so that he can get ready to cook parts of the tabuk.
As the tabuk bleeds out i start on other things like getting the stuff ready to go in the pot like some fresh suls, carrots and peas. As i clean and sul’s and carrot’s chopping them in bight size bits. When thats all down i run and get three buckets of water from the stream, I find a pot that is not being used so i clean it and use the water in that wash the blood away from the camp. Now using the other two buckets i begin to make dinner.
As i clean the tabuk i get a nice size roast out of it as i clean the meat with some water i start seeking out just the right spices to enhance the tabuk roast’s flavor, choosing thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper, he carries the packets back to the roast, rubbing the spices tenderly into it, massaging it in as deeply as he can so the flavors will sink in, setting it aside, he dump in all the sul, carrots and peas into the water first, he then looks and sees the bread he made is still there as he pulls that off the rack he takes his sword and moves the rack from the fire. He then takes the pot and puts it on a long bar to hold it over the fire, making sure it and the pot will not slip and fall off.
When this is all done he adds more wood to the fire so that the water will boil cooking all the goods inside that is when he will add the meat tell then he puts it on the top shelf to cook it a bit before cutting it up into bite size peaces. Using a bit more salt, pepper, thyme and honey he make something for Twig and the rest of the feral’s pulling the ribs out i clean them and start to put the goodies on there for the feral’s hoping they will like it.
Seeing the water start to boil he pulls the big peace of meat down and cut it up then adds it to the rest of the food. As i look in the pot i start to see that everything is mixing good and this should be nice for the Huntress when they get back from there raiding to have some roasted tabuk with carrots, sul’s, pea’s and sweet bread.. Then for the feral’s honey ribs with some sweet bread as well. Seeing all this good makes him smile but it might draw in some bad people so he goes back to his rock and keeps look out. Ever free time he gets he makes sure to come back and stir and flip the rips.
Kajirus – Part Two
Kajirus , male slave of Gor:
When serving, a kajirus should serve Mistresses in nadu position, and Masters in tower; this is out of respect for gender. the quotes below, help to explain, the male slave and the strength it takes to be……
But most perhaps, incredible as it might seem, I feared that if I asked for a kindness, even a word or a gesture, it would be refused. Alone and slave, beaten and degraded, I found myself desperately in need of something, be it almost nothing, to indicate that I was a man, a human being, something that might, to some extent or degree, be worthing of respect or understanding. I think that if she, this proud woman, before whom I felt myself nothing, she my Mistress, if she had but cared to speak a word of simple kindness to me I might have cried out with gladness, willingly serving her in all things she asked. But if I should but beg a kindness, humbly, I feard it might be refused, that she might reject me in this as she had in all other things, my manhood and my humanity. And fused with this, excruciating in the pain of it, was my desire for her, the crying out of my blood that she had so, and deliberately, aroused.
Raiders of Gor:
Male slaves are mainly enslaved for economic reasons, as cheap labor. The Gorean philosophy of “natural order” supports female slavery but it does not support male slavery. Gorean society though recognizes the validity, legality and economic necessity of male slavery. It is a more practical decision and not one based on a deeper philosophy. Under these justifications, anyone can be enslaved. Not all societal institutions need be based on an underlying philosophical foundation. Some are simply practical concepts.
Few male slaves are considered valuable and they generally do not garner high prices, even at auction. The primary exceptions are male silk slaves and exotics. The normal high price for a male slave, not a silk slave or exotic, is a silver tarsk. Many female slaves would sell for more than that amount. There are also very few male slaves with long pedigrees. There are few reasons to breed male slaves except as exotics. Nearly any Gorean man can serve as a typical work slave.
The most common types of male slaves are the work slaves. They are usually used on cargo galleys, mines, great farms or as porters on wharves. Port Kar, Cos and Tyros utilize thousands of male galley slaves. Many cities use male slaves for some of the more unpleasant labor in the cities, such as in the refuse pits or cleaning the public baths. Some slaves may pull wagons in teams. Most men work on chains with other slaves. In some cities like Ar, an unchained male slave is rarely ever seen. Work gangs commonly consist of fifty to one hundred men though they may be as large as one thousand men. They are commonly considered to be cheap and expendable labor.
Free work chains also exist as slaves are not permitted to engage in certain construction work. Work slaves are not used for road construction, siege works, erecting walls, or the construction of temples and public buildings. In many respects though, free chains are often not much different from slaves. Many free chains consist of criminals. These criminals have been sold, for a nominal fee, to work gang leaders to serve out the rest of their sentence as a laborer. Though they are technically supposed to be freed when their prison term would be up not all are. Some work masters create stringent rules for their workers. If you violate one of these rules, it will add time onto your sentence. The rules are created so most of the workers will violate them at some point, effectively keeping the workers much longer than their original sentence. The workers are commonly kept under slave discipline and the work master can do anything he wants to them, including killing them.
Probably the lowest of all work slaves are the salt slaves of Klima. Klima is located deep in the dune country of the Tahari region. Its exact location is a well kept secret. Thousands of salt slaves work there to extract salt from brine pits, generally by drilling or flush mining. Salt slaves are taken there on foot. They are hooded, chained and led through the desert. Many never make it as far as Klima. Escape from Klima is nearly impossible and no one until Tarl Cabot had ever escaped from there. No kaiila are permitted there and there is no water for a thousand pasangs. No women are permitted there and the workday is from dawn to dusk. It is brutal work and few slaves last too long there.
“A male slave kept by Free Women as sexual toys, handsome and sometimes pretty by male standards, these slaves are often muscular and manly, as Free Women love having strong men at their feet, this can be dangerous if the slave doesn’t know his place or wishes to be free. At the present time there is a city ordinance in Ar which restricts the sexual use, or “couching” of slaves by Free Women, due to the widespread belief that the physical charms of precious Free Women are reserved only for the free.”
“I lifted my chained wrists. ‘Why am I chained?’ I asked. ‘What a stupid fool you are,’ she said. Then she walked about me, whip in hand. ‘Yet you are a pretty one,’ she said. ‘To a woman you might not be unattractive.’
“Then she stood again before me. I shrank back in the chains. I was acutely conscious of the clasp of the steel on my wrists and ankles. She approached me and with the coils of the whip, tapped the metal on my neck. ‘This is a collar.’ she said. Then , with her left hand, she jerked at the metal piece attached to the collar. From the way it felt I gathered that it was as I had suspected, a ring. Then it fell back against the collar and against my collarbone. She then stepped back, and regarded me. Never had I been looked upon so objectively by a woman. ‘I think you will do very nicely,’ she said.
Fighting Slave of Gor:
Female slaves normally despise male slaves. They consider themselves the rightful property of only free persons. It is considered a great shame for a female slave to have to touch a male slave. Male slaves though are often permitted to have a female slave for their pleasure, especially as a reward. But, a male slave might be killed for touching a female slave without permission. Female slaves show contempt toward male slaves because they do not see them as real men, because they have been made slave.
Usually, but not always. Although “kajirus” technically refers to all Gorean male slaves, there’s one type in particular that raises the hackles on the backs of most Gorean men — the willing male slave. Especially, the willing sex slave … a man who of his own choice gave up his freedom, who realized that it was his true nature to submissively fulfill the wishes of a woman (or possibly a man) … and thereby becoming an object of desire.
