Gorean Living ~ Kajiri rules

Gorean slaves must read this entire page before posting!
It is recommended that all slaves/submissives read and heed this page

**If you are claiming to be a Gorean slave, you will act like it or face disciplinary action!**
The following rules apply to all who claim the status of kajira/kajirus (Gorean slave).
It is strongly suggested that you do not call yourself kajira/kajirus if you do not fully understand what this means. It is better to say that you wish to be or are in training to be such. That way, you will be guided and taught, rather than being expected to already know your place.

These rules are in ADDITION to the general rules listed on the previous page.

All free are to be addressed as "Master" or "Mistress" unless they tell you otherwise.
This is not to say you may not address them by name, but that the title will be appended to their name (ie: "Master so and so")

Slaves will be respectful to the free at all times, regardless of their personal opinion of the individual in question, what a free person says to a slave or how they say it.
It is not a slave's place to dictate to or publicly judge the free.
If you feel a free person is actually being abusive to you, take it up with a moderator, OFF LIST.

Slaves are required to begin all posts with proper greetings, at least to the free (masters first, then mistresses).
This can be long-form, separate greetings on 3 lines, as has been customary on many groups, or as simple as "Greetings/Tal/Hello/Good Morning/ets Masters, Mistresses, and slaves.

Slaves are required to end each post with an appropriate sign off. It doesn't have to be fancy, flowery or several lines, but it does have to reflect your status.

Owned slaves will include their owner's name in their sign off.

Owned slaves must provide their owner's contact information upon request by the group owner or any moderator.

Lurking is permitted after your initial introduction, however, if a free person addresses you, you must answer them. Note: This applies to ON LIST discussion. You are not required to respond to private messages or emails from anyone If a member of this list tries to push the issue, please report it to the list moderator.

Slaves are NEVER required to give out their personal information (real name, location, phone number, email, IM, etc.) and are strongly advised to avoid doing so. If anyone tries to order you to give out personal information, please report it to a moderator at ONCE!

Chastising, correcting, or otherwise calling down someone for not adhering to their station or the rules here is reserved for the free and group owners/moderators.

That said, this IS meant to be a place of learning, so suggestions to fellow slaves, on how they might improve their comportment in order to further their goals are quite appropriate if it is done in a civil and non-judgemental fashion and in the true spirit of helpfulness. Veiling cattiness in being helpful WILL be seen through and dealt with harshly, so don't try it!.

No bickering! Period. If you have an issue with someone and cannot remain civil, take it elsewhere.

Slaves are permitted to publicly disagree with the free, but must always remember their place when doing so.

~ Some additional hints and guidelines ~

Being polite when a free person is being abusive or rude

We all know that this is Earth and not all who claim to be Gorean behave in ways generally associated with Gorean precepts. Some are players, losers, predators or just plain clueless.
Regardless of what they are or aren't though, that doesn't give a slave license to step out of line unless said slave is in actual physical danger of some kind.
Since this is an online forum, there is no way a slave is ever going to be in danger of anything but a bruised ego, which is good for slaves on occasion, so there is no cause for a slave to be impolite here.. ever.
Some pointers for maintaining your proper place when dealing with a difficult situation:

- Always continue to address them properly.

- Refrain from sarcasm.

- Apologize and beg forgiveness *even if you are not in the wrong* ... Remember - you are apologizing for being displeasing, not for doing whatever it is you are accused of!

- Offer your owner's contact information (for an email address @forums.GoreanLiving.com that will forward to your regular email address, so you can keep your private info private click here.


1. Master X: "You are a completely worthless slave and should be killed!"

Suggested response: (3rd person speech optional, but often conveys the proper attitude better)

"This slave is sorry you feel that way Master. Please forgive her for being displeasing to you."
(Don't forget to report it if it is actually something abusive! )

2. A free person is ordering you to do something that conflicts with your owner's rules.

Suggested response:

"This girl is sorry Master, but her owner forbids (whatever), so she is unable to comply with your command. Please contact her master at (IM or email) if you wish to discuss this matter with him. A slave begs your understanding and forgiveness."

3. A free person is harassing you or is continually abusive to you.

Suggested response:

"Please forgive this slave Master, but she feels she must refrain from further communication with you until you have spoken with her master. Please contact him at (IM or email)"
Then ignore and report them.

By identifying as a Gorean slave (ie: kajira or kajirus) and posting to the Gorean Living group, you are stating that you have read and agree to abide by the rules on this page. When you send your email to the group owner, Khaos, to let her know you have read these rules in full, so that you may post, it would be wise to remember that she is a free woman, and to address her as such. If you do not, it will be obvious that you lied about reading this entire page, and she will be extremely displeased.
