What Do They Mean?
silks that a slave of Gor wears are gifts from her Master, as she
has no possessions
and all she receives is from him; therefore,
the style, the color, and the accessories that she may wear are selected
by him. He may select any garment he wishes for his slave, or no
garment at all, but we offer this list of generally acknowledged
conventional guidelines that may affect the perception of his choices.
Tradition tells us that slavegirls are usually "clad only in
the brief, diagonally striped slave livery of Gor, a sleeveless,
briefly skirted garment terminating some inches above the knee." -

White - The white silk slave is not necessarily virgin, but rather
reserved for her Master's sole use. Generally, white silk slaves
are permitted to serve food and drink and have conversation from
their knees. No laps or alcoves are permitted, as their sexual use
is forbidden. Corporal punishment is administered only at the hands
of the owner. Masters and Mistresses (if insulted) may choose to
embarrass, confine, or display the slave, but may not strike in any
way nor permit another to do so. No honorable freeperson will cross
the restrictions of the White Silk. New slaves normally wear white
silks until they learn to serve and please Masters or Mistresses.
Yellow - Denotes the Inn-owned pleasure slave ... her use is rented and negotiated with the Inn owners and may or may not include sexual favors (full usage) at the owner's discretion.
Red - The mark of a pleasure slave...may generally be used by any freeperson
who desires her usage but may be reserved
for the sole
use of the owner. A pleasure slave is trained in all sexual pleasures,
in service, and in dancing. Such kajirae are said to be closest to
the houris of the Arabian harem. Collared Red Silk may be reserved
solely for the use of their Owners. "True" Red Silks could
be collared or uncollared but the slave's sexual pleasures are allowed
use by any freeperson. Sometimes payment is made to the Owner for
the use of the slave. If an uncollared slave claims to wear red silk,
the slave should be prepared to be used as a "red silk" kajira.
color and clothing:
Grey - State owned slaves
Black - The mark of an unowned, unpurchased slave. Normally, these
uncollared slaves wear a cloth camisk, not made of silk.
Camisk - A cloth that is used to bind and conceal the loins of the
slave female, brought between the legs and drawn extremely tight
about the waist to emphasis it.
Chalwar - Baggy pants of diaphanous silk, worn by slavegirls of
the Tahari; similar to the harem trousers of Earth
Ta-Teera - A simple cloth, slit fully on both side with an opening
for the head, worn poncho style. The cloth is held in place with
a cord or chain tied tightly about the waist, and its hem barely
covers the groin and bottom so that the slave flesh is fully available
at all times.
Garment - There is no distinct garment for a male slave
on Gor, since, as it is said, it is not well for them to discover
how numerous they are. -Tarl Cabot, Outlaw of Gor
