Do you at least have kajira attending the munches wearing very little comparing their brands?



Around here if we go out to eat in a restaurant everyone wears what is appropriate to the place and weather. In our private meetings, kajira are restricted to a one piece garment. A few have had tattoos but not most and no brands. Most of us don't use actual brands. There are a lot more of those in the BDSM world than among Goreans from all that I have seen.

This is an interesting signature.

I'd suspect brands aren't all that widely adopted by Goreans for the same reason as they're not that common in the rest of the fetish scene.

Perhaps. I think it's more likely that most of the people who profess themselves to be Gorean (or twoo slaves for that matter) are only so in the bedroom. The idea of a brand might be powerful, but it subsides quickly after orgasm.

quote:

Whatever Lange/Norman and Pauline Reage say in their fiction, it's very difficult to brand somebody showing a design rather than a blob of scar tissue, not guaranteed to show the design that's intended very clearly, and bound to fade and become less distinct however good a job is done initially. Slavegirls just don't have the sort of thick hide that lends itself to branding, and tattoos are a lot more permanent, even if they take a lot longer to apply.

This would certainly be true if someone tried to use the same type of branding iron that is used on livestock. As you say, we have different sort of hide than they do and as such, different tools and techniques are required. When done properly by a skilled practitioner; a legible, long lasting strike brand is readily achievable. It may lack the "romantic" nature of pulling a red-hot iron out of a fire and branding your kajira over your Home Stone, but such is life in the real world. If you want professional results, you see a professional.

As for the permanence of tattoos, it's far easier, and less painful, to remove/cover a tattoo than it is to excise a brand scar.

My mistake, stef. I know it's a different technique for branding a slavegirl's thigh than for a Texas longhorn, and a much more complicated and fiddly procedure, but I'd been led to believe that elaborate brands faded and healed to scar-ry illegibility pretty quickly. It's nice to know that they're a bit more permanent than that. I've seen a few photos comparing fresh brands (very clear and distinct) to them after they've been in place for over a decade, and some of the latter you couldn't even tell that they'd originally been a design rather than the result of somebody catching themself with an iron or something.
Still, branding's a fairly recent development as bodymods go (at least in western bdsm circles) so it shouldn't be a surprise that the techniques involved are still being refined and improved...

I liked "priest Kings of Gor."

They were the large mantis like insects that ruled counter earth. They kept the human polation under control by only allowing primitive technology. Enforced by invisible flying drones that wiped out would be inventors with heat rays.

Which left a lot less time to drone on and on about male superiority-when your master is a rather large bug.

Indeed, but I think they were more a fix for a background problem than anything else.

As somebody mad queer for the bronze age classics, Norman/Lange would doubtless like that description a lot.
As lowering somebody dressed as a God onto the stage to tell the rest of the cast to knock it off and go home was something the Greek playwrights only resorted to when they'd written themselves into a corner or forgotten to set up something important they needed for the end, it's also highly appropriate to the introduction of the (previously unmentioned, but more or less running the whole planet) Priest-Kings, but a bit less flattering to the author on that level.

Maybe he was hoping for a transfer from the philosophy department to sociology? That was quite a fashionable field for academics around the turn of the '70s...

No....philosophy was his interest and for a number of years the department web site had a description about the department that Dr. Lange wrote. It looks like he finally retired. He is no longer listed as a faculty member and given his age, that is not surprising. I know the last listing for him had him teaching one undergraduate class and one graduate class. He had gone down to only being on campus two days a week. Like I said, at his age, understandable.

Quite understandable. It happens all the time. Yes, collarchat logged you in as someone else. That's it.

Yes it has happened to other people as well. The system has lots of problems.

A mere joke, Malkinus: slave a and slave b sound like example characters from a sociological depiction in a textbook, dig?

I think being logged in as someone else is possible, "perhaps", but posting while logged in as someone else and not noticing is a bit of a stretch, a big one actually, unless one was used to being logged in under that userid. That is more likely that the former theory.

Yeah bullshit bumblefuck. Do you check to see what account name is listed after you log in? Fuck no, you just assume you are logged in under your account name; and if you say you do you are lying your ass off.

No. Not when I log in. That is true. But shortly afterward it would be apparent while engaging in any activities. So the more relevant question is "how does one miss the fact that another login id and picture is on one's post or cmail or profile or whatever especially since both are displayed when you click "ok"?

But maybe you are right.

No, I would suppose not. No chance. Not unless you accidently were logged in as me.

Artie.....

Maybe you didn't notice but neither the name nor the picture shows up when you are reading or writing a post. I noticed it almost as soon as it got posted but I couldn't delete it. I came back as soon as I could and corrected things. My actual mistake was in not hitting preview before posting.

I thought the mods banned you for life from here and certainly from the Gorean forum for all the shit you did, said and caused over the years. Now you are back with a new nick to hide from your past misdeeds?
