I had heard that some free women would permit their companions to touch them only in the dark, beneath coverlets, while they perhaps were still garbed, in, say “love robes,” “modesty silks,” or the “himations of intimacy.” These precautions, I gather, are to ensure the dignity of the free woman and to impress upon the male that he is not dealing then with a cheap, amorous, worthless slave. Goreans, not too unlike the men of Earth, when dealing with free women, are often tolerant of cheating nature, of reducing and degrading her.

Tribesmen of Gor, p. 538
