Sl@ves thrive in their profound sexuality, free women dont and in fact it is that profound and uncontrollable sexuality that makes the collar so sweet to wear. In comparison, free women are frigid, having their societal role deny them the truth of their nature. Or at least that's what Norman would say. And that truth, in its perfect manifestation, that of the Gorean sl@ve girl, is what makes the free women hate their collared sisters. Yes, some are hotter than others, the books say so, yes of course they can find love and a meaningful relationship with another free man, but, again from an archetypical point of view, they wont be able to neither be sexually fulfilled, like the sl@ve is, neither make a free man aroused, to the degree a sl@ve would. Norman uses the dynamics between free women and sl@ves, again and again and again, to make the point that Gorean social norms aside, a woman's nature would have her on her knees, fulfilled and happy. She would have it so and the men would have it so as well.
We dont have to like it, agree with it, even roleplay with it, but that's what he says and it makes perfect sense within the constraints of his fantasy world. I underline the world fantasy because someone mentioned the Priest Kings....
...and about a slave being free to be made a FC. Being a slave is not simply the fact that a woman is enslaved, wears a collar, does not have a choice - it is a psychological state of being. When a woman leaves that role and take on the role of FC that psychology would change....maybe not instantly but it would eventually.
I want to emphasize - I also do not care how other people play their role. I have played many things in a gorean context that are much more "risky" than being a secret slave or a FW that is a slut in the bedroom. But I would not come here and try to pull some quote to prove that I am doing it BTB and that my rp is perfectly good in that gorean context. I also make sure that I do not step on people's toes in rp when I do things that are a bit out of the norm - and that I do not invite consequences that might not be welcome.
