Gorean masters do not intentionally hurt their slaves, no more than a man would kick his dog for the fun of it ... to compare bdsm to Gor is not really realistic ...
Hm, if gor is a subset of bdsm or not? That really is a matter of opinion.
Gor in the books - the slavery is not voluntary - and that is ok because it is just a fantasy. Not different then killing 100s of Zombies in some zombie movie.
Gor in sl? That is very much voluntary. The cross in the corner is the ultimate safe word. All things that are done in sl are voluntary - no one can be forced to do anything in sl.
Gor in rl? That has to be voluntary - and it has to be safe, sane and consensual. If it is not - it is not only a crime but also highly immoral.
So yes - as soon as gor is taken into rl - the bdsm rules have to apply!
