A Gorean slaver and a slave in Second Life

Gor is a fictional race created by John Norman. Primarly, it is known for its theme of female slavery, and the thesis that it is the natural order. Of interest is that Gor adheres to the morality of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

I played in Second Life's Gorean community for about 2 years (2006 to 2007), several hours per day. You will often hear that some of them practice Gorean philosophy in real life. Though, you could never be sure. Here's a news article that put the doubt to rest.


A sex slavery cult based on a series of 1960s science fiction novels has been uncovered by police in Darlington.

Durham Police discovered the bizarre sect after raiding a home in the area, after receiving complaints that a woman was being held against her will.

But a spokesman said the Canadian was a willing participant and the other people involved were consenting adults.

The group, called Kaotians, follow the Chronicles of Gor novels which depict a society where women are dominated.

The 29-year-old woman is said to have voluntarily attended the sect after finding out about it over the internet.

She later contacted a friend in United States, who then contacted the police, saying she wanted to leave but couldn't as she had burnt her passport and return ticket.

But a police spokesman said upon arriving at the premises they did not find any evidence of “criminal offences”.

… There are an estimated 25,000 Goreans worldwide.
