I've heard the name "Gorean" before in message boards, but what exactly IS the Gorean Lifestyle? If anyone has links, resources, or experience they'd like to share, please feel free. I'm asking only for the sake of sating my own curiosity. Thank you X

Goreans are those who live the life outlined the books of Gor... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gor

In short, the Man/Master, provides the life He desires to those in His home; while His slave(s) provide for His every wish.
There are very strict standards on both sides. And, while I do not identify as "Gorean"; the kajira (slave) is a concept that is very much desirable as far as slave protocol IMHO.

In a simple word...no. Your first sentence was fine but after that...no. It is people who follow the philosophical tenets the author put into the Gorean Saga or Chronicles of Gor, which ever name you wish to use for the Gor books. We also add some of the culture from the books as a binder and shared culture to hold those people together. One of the parts of that culture is that slavery is legal in the books and both males and females can be enslaved. About 2-3% of the females on the planet in the books are slaves but they are a major part of the story arc and a part of the illustration of several things the author wished to comment on through the storyline. Here we use a form of consensual slavery best described as Owner and property service based consensual slavery. Or more simply, a slave is a slave in relation to anyone who is free, not just a slave to the one who owns her. Yes, most slaves who are involved in and with Goreans are female...but so are most of the characters in the books who are enslaved. Most...not all.

Think of it as a way of living based on concepts such as strength, honor, responsibility, community and a connection with the world we live in. We tell everyone that the only way to really understand is to read the books. There is no shortcut, no abridged form or Gor for Dummies. Only by doing so can we be really understood and can you tell who is real and who is just playing at this and yes, there are many who play at it online and some offline. You can also call it how we interact with the world around us. Most of the time you will not be able to tell who is Gorean or not. They are just men and women who live to a higher standard for themselves than many people do and who believe that we really should live according to what we say we do and take responsibility for doing so.

There are many references to older threads which go on about this at incredible length. That is because while there is a path there is no one way to learn to be or to live as a Gorean. There is no one book, no guru, no leader, no revelations from on high. There is just men and women who learn and live. So to know more, read, ask and learn.

Be well....

Thank you both for the answers. I just wanted to know where to look further for how the lifestyle came about. I may pick up a book or too and read some once I can

If by "providing the life He desires..." means that life is judged by his view of what is good, natural and correct rather than the masses surrounding His home. Yes.

I "like the slave providing for his very wish" thing since it is what I think of as good, natural and correct and my code does not conflict with that.

It's okay to call it a "lifestyle" because you seem smart enough to realize this is a way of defining yourself including your life goals and aspirations, executing the actions to make them real and judging the same. Well done.

I have noted that KitsuneRivka are a sub/sub couple. Is the World of Gor (of which I am not an expert by any means, and would defer to someone who is), is it possible for a slave to have another slave, or (as I suspect is the case) would the two (male/female) slaves be under the ownership and jurisdiction of one Master who, if he allows the two slaves to interact with each other, would be for his pleasure and for his benefit?

In the books some owners owned both males and females. In the books, slaves are property and property does not own other property. One slave may be placed in authority over other slaves and if there were enough slaves in a household that was done Slaves were also used to train other slaves.

So for Goreans here and now...it has always been that a slave can not own another slave. That is not true among BDSM types and certainly not true among subs and switches. While I don't know of any Gorean owning both a male and a female slave offline (online doesn't count), it could have happened. Many things could have happened that I do not know if they did or not. There is certainly nothing prohibiting it. They would mostly be used for different purposes. While both would work one might work in the house and the other outside or at specialized tasks or the same task if needed.
