Kajira is the Gorean word for a female pleasure slave. In Gorean tradition, a kajira must do everything in her power to bring her owner pleasure. This ranges from cooking and cleaning, to sensual dances, to sex. However, the life of a real life kajira looks very different than that of a kajira in the books.
In the books, a kajira’s duties are not limited to her master alone. A slave is a slave is a slave. Kajirae (the plural form) are required to defer to all Free People regardless of gender or ownership. While all slaves are owned by someone (a slaver, a private owner, a paga tavern, etc.), it’s considered bad manners to deny someone the service of your slave. This means that often Gorean slaves are raped by strangers while running errands for their owners, which leads to the slave being punished for being late. It’s rare that the Free Man is punished for the rape, but when he is, it’s usually for “theft of goods.”
This is not the case with real life kajirae, because in real life, slavery is illegal and anyone claiming the slave title retains the right to consent.

As you can see, I’ve changed the name of Upworthy Sunday. It’s cheesy AF, but I’m all about the cheese. I’ve also decided to narrow the focus to “things that make me happy” because I feel like we don’t talk about the things that make us happy nearly enough. Which means that going forward, this might not always be things from other people. So here’s my first “#SunnySunday”. It requires two videos. You’re just gonna have to watch them both to understand why. #sorrynotsorry
Gandhi said that if you want to change the world, you have to be the change you want to see. To that end, Insatiable Desire brings you No Stupid (Kink) Questions, a series of questions asked by novice kinksters around the web.

I have this one unusual hard limit. I bring it up with every single person I intend to have sex with, whether or not I expect kink to enter the equation. It’s really silly. Most people laugh when I mention it. But I am firm on it. I just can’t do it.
Recently, my relationship dynamic has gone from play partner to full-time submissive. I was very clear that my hard limits stayed the same, but my mistress keeps pushing. She says that if I’m to be hers, I need to trust her to push my boundaries. It’s making me uncomfortable. What should I do?
A hard limit is a hard limit is a hard limit. It doesn’t matter how silly other people think your hard limit is. All that matters is you don’t want to do it.
It’s frustrating to me that your mistress used the old “trust me to push your boundaries” line, because in a sense, she’s right. You should be able to trust her to push your boundaries. But that’s not on you. That’s on her. She has to be a trustworthy dominant if you’re going to trust her. Read more…
In a series of fictional novels written by John Norman, there exists a spaceship, of sorts, that is of similar shape, size, and climate to planet Earth. That ship is called Gor, or Counter-Earth.
Gor is said to orbit the sun in such a way that makes it invisible to those who inhabit Earth. This allows the creatures controlling Gor (Priest-Kings) and the humans who inhabit Gor to abduct people from Earth and force them into slavery. Generally speaking, the people abducted are female, and the slavery is sexual in nature.
From this series, an almost cultish fandom has formed, inspiring internet chatrooms, Second Life worlds, relationship dynamics, and even whole communities of people who choose to apply Gorean philosophies and customs to their real lives.
For some, the Gorean lifestyle is simply role-play; a way to scratch an itch (the master/slave relationship or sexual dynamic) they don’t feel comfortable scratching as themselves. For others, Gor is a way of life.

La kajira. I am a pleasure slave. I am trained in the ways of the Gorean slave, and the core of my training is “be pleasing.”
The definition of “pleasure,” as you may know, varies from person to person. So, too, does the definition of “pleasure slave.” For some, “pleasure slave” is exclusive to bedroom activities. For some, “pleasure slave” extends to every part of the slave’s life. Regardless the dynamic, one thing remains constant: a pleasure slave must learn to identify things that bring the slave owner pleasure.
So I’m sure you can imagine my surprise when I noticed Master resisting my suggestions at every turn.
Most recent development in his weirdness: the Kung Fu Panda movies.
When they first came out, he absolutely refused to watch them. Said they looked incredibly stupid, and he couldn’t understand why they were so popular.
I insisted that he’d like them.
Kung Fu Panda 3 previews hit the TV, and all of a sudden he wanted to watch the first two.
Guess who laughed hysterically and is now eating his hat.
