Now for a little lessen of old. BDFSM a natural progression of the life and mind set. B is for Bondage - what most start with playfully experimenting. D is for the Discipline to do or not to do. Having the control to do as told even if the one to enter into service does not want to do it. Most people today separate out the F. Through the first two, you come up with a preference, want, or need. This is commonly known as a FETISH. S & M- Sadism & Masochism two sides of the coin one who wants to give pain and one who wants to receive pain. Through the first three, they find how to achieve what they need within this last part of the lifestyle as well. It seems that many of the younger generations are not taught or do not know this idealism of the lifestyle. Most only know the modern social ideas or want the romance fantasy or only sexual versions of the BDFSM lifestyle.

  • Slave silks: The books clearly state that "white silk" and "red silk" is purely a reference to the slaves virginity (or lack thereof). "Yellow silk" and "grey silk" are two colors in common use to designate tavern slaves (particularly paga-taverns, yellow), and slaves owned by the state (grey). Use of these colors is purely at the discretion of the master; they are not some other-worldly martial-art style designation of a slaves training - those records (if any) are kept and transfered by owners/trainers.
  • Slave status: Being a slave on Gor (there are numerous references in the books, I'm not going to bother citing page references, if you doubt me, re-read) is not dependant on being owned. A slave whose master is slain remains a slave, simply an un-claimed slave, subject to claiming by anyone with the strength to do so. According to the books, the only legally accepted way for a slave to change that state of being is to be granted freedom by their owner. Before the Norman bibliophiles out there start typing, Tarl was released prior to being Bosk, and examine the plot again in Fighting Slave of Gor regarding a slave becoming a Free Woman.
  • Use of Gorean terms/titles: Home stones: I'm actually glad to see that very few people actually claim to have one, or even seen anothers; anything more is an entirely different post. Master/Mistress/kajira/kajiru/Free Person: All Free Persons are Master/Mistress, regardless of owning a slave. If you are not Free, you are slave - gender specific terms where applicable. Ubar/Ubara: Excepting in reference to within the confines of their own home - in his home every man is an Ubar - the titles use is almost impossible to translate to Earth use - are you a leader of a large region, mayor, governor? then you're not an Ubar. Jarl: "leader of men" are you in fact a leader?, complete with those that have sworn fealty to you? or are you an active leader in a group with structured rank - Captian of a ship, etc? then you are not a Jarl. *For clarity on this title: if you are head of a House, a Gorean version of a Leather Family, then yes, Jarl applies - unless you're the only member of course.
  • Gor vs BDSM: Before I begin on this, a quick geometry refresher: A rectangle, by definition, is not a square; but a square is a rectangle: Four sides? Yes. Opposite sides equal in length? Yes. Interior angles all 90 degrees? Yes. Difference being that a rectangle doesn't require all sides to be of equal length. Ergo, a square is a specific type of rectangle. Is BDSM Gorean? No, living BDSM does not imply an adherance to the concepts from Normans works. Is living Gorean BDSM?... Yes. Break it down before your fingers leap to the keys: BD/Bondage & Discipline - anyone that says a Gorean style Master/slave relationship doesn't know the terms "slave goad" or "slave chains." DS/Domination & submission - Does this actually need explaination to be seen as a "yes"? SM/Sadism & Masochism - here is the only murky distinction. Sadism implies deriving pleasure from anothers pain, if you consider yourself a master/mistress and don't own a flogger or crop or whip, then your answer here is "no" but I'm certain that no self-respect master is far from their 5-standed slave whip. Masochism is the same, for receiving of pain... if as a slave you don't get a warm feeling at the site of your master coming at you with an impliment of "training" then the answer is "no." If you answered "no" to the SM portion, then I feel you may need to seriously consider if you are Gorean. Reread the books, contemplate the natural order expressed in them - even the alpha male of a wolf pack will attack the female to remind her of her place. Is the Gorean lifestyle BDSM? Yes - a specific type. Just like a square is a specific rectangle.

Downriver Club Munch-Thursday, January 20th

The public munch is from 7:30PM to 9:30PM at The Broadcast Booth in Allen Park, located at 6550 Allen Road.


This a beautiful location on Southfield in the jewel of Downriver. There is street parking out front or lots of additional parking around back with lighting everywhere.

There is a $10.00 per person cover charge that includes food, soda, coffee, and tea. You don't need to buy any drinks or food! For those interested, they also have a full bar (not included) and even professional pool tables at $8 an hour.

This is a nice, clean, upscale, and safe location to meet everyone at. There are even couches in the bar area and TVs everywhere. This is a fairly new establishment that has been in Allen Park now for 2 years.

This event repeats every month on the third Thursday.

Demonstrations for Fetish Party

by punkangel

I am helping organize a fetish party at the Chrome Cat, a night club in Lansing on Saturday, March 12. We're advertising it as an invite only party, and there will be a very diverse crowd, some vanilla folks, and there will be some more experienced in attendance. Hopefully you will be there too! :-)

I would first like to extend the invitation to any FL folks who would like to join us for a night of performance art, demonstrations, and dancing. I guess it would be something in between a munch and an official play party. Because of the variety in the crowd, and that it's being held in a bar, we will not have much space available for play, as well as the alcohol factor being present, although we will be bringing in some equipment, such as a St. Andrew's Cross. There will be a few performances. So far we have a flogging demo lined up, a horse & pony number, a furry drag number, and a few other acts that are still in the works.

I am seeking anyone who might be interested in taking part in our fetish night. In particular, a boot black would be amazing. I think some rope bondage would be a delicious addition as well, or some fire play! I would love to find a play piercer, although I'm not sure if that would be too much for the crowd... If you have any fun talents you'd like to show off, message me and we can see if I can fit it into the evening. Or, if you have any questions about the event, let me know.

in Pennsic Kinky.

Hello everyone! Here is the link for the Fetlife head count for Pennsic War XL. They are split up into two weeks because Fetlife doesn't acknowledge events lasting more than one week long. If you are going to be available for both weeks and want your face counted, attend both events, and if you are only able to go for one week alone, choose the week that best suits your plans.

See you at War!!

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
