I have perhaps not made clear enough the nature of the men of this world
I have perhaps not made clear enough the nature of the men of this world. They are muchly different from the men of Earth. They tend, on the whole, to be large, strong, virile, confident, uncompromising, powerful men.
Yet the major differences between them and the men of Earth are not those of size or strength, but rather those of character and psychology. They are differently acculturated. They live, for example, in a world in which female slavery is acknowledged, recognized and celebrated. They are accustomed to seeing beautiful women in bondage, their limbs and beauty well revealed by slave garb, their necks locked in collars. And there is nothing, of course, which so enflames the virility of a man as the sight of a slave girl, let alone the thought of taking her in his arms.
It is no surprise then that on this world men commonly, naturally, familiarly, immediately, innocently, taking such things for granted, not even thinking about it, it being part of their world, look largely upon women, even free women, in terms of their possible value as slaves, their possible value as “auction stock,” as adornments for a slave ring at the foot of one’s couch, as squirming “collar meat.” It is no surprise then that the Gorean male thinks in terms of the mastery.
