"Gorean slavery is categorical and absolute. The slave is property, an animal. She is incapable of doing anything to alter, change or
affect her status. She is owned by the master, and owes him all. She can be bought and sold. She must serve with perfection.
Renegades of Gor, page 386

Slave Girdle: Tied in such a manner, as to emphasis, not to subtly, the figure. Dancer of Gor page 155  

Slave Livery/Tunic: brief tunic, slit deeply at the hips, narrow shoulder straps, little more than strings. Dancer of Gor, page 155

Slave Silk: generally diaphanous, can be worn in a variety of ways. On the shoulder, off the shoulder, with high necklines, or plunging
necklines, in open or closed garments, tightly or flowingly of various lengths. Can be worn only in halters and G-strings. Sometimes
strips are wound about the body. The tying of slave girdles, with such material, emphasizes the figure and makes clear her bondage,
is also an art in itself. Can be worn in brief parting or wraparound tunics with a disrobing loop at the left shoulder, a tug on the loop,
drops the tunic to the girl's ankles, gracefully. Dancer of Gor,page 224 - 225

Slave Veil: a small triangle of diaphanous yellow silk, worn across the bridge of the nose where, beautifully, it's porous, yellow sheen
broke to the left and right. Considered a mockery, as it reveals as much as it conceals; adds a touch of subtlety and mystery.

Note: There is no distinctive garment for a male slave on Gor, it is said, "it is not well, for them to discover how numerous they
are.'"Outlaw of Gor, page 66  

In my research of slave wear on Gor, I have come across all types of manners of dressing them, from shirts and skirts out in one part of the
Gor, to frills and corsets on the border town of the Savage's land, slaves dress as their owners wishes, period.

                                                                                Chains and Good Stuff

Sirik:
light chain favored for female slaves, consists of a Turian type collar, to which a light gleaming chain is attached, which falls to
the floor, about 10 - 12 inches longer than is required to reach from the collar to the ankles; to this chain, at the natural fall of the
wrists, is attached a pair of slave bracelets; at the end of the chain is attached a set of linked ankle rings, which, when locked upon
the ankles lift a portion of the chain from the floor. An incredibly beautiful thing, used to enhance the beauty of the slave. The
bracelets and ankle rings can be removed, and used separately, which permits the sirik to function as a slave leash. Nomads of Gor,
page 42

Work Sirik: resembles the common sirik but the wrists, to permit work, are granted about  a yard of chain. Like the common sirik, it is
a lovely chain, Women are beautiful in it. Kajira of Gor, page 14

Slave Bracelets and Ankle Rings: But this time I expected that her ankles would not be as though chained, her wrists as though
braceleted; she would wear the linked ankle rings, the three-linked slave bracelets of a Gorean master. Raiders of Gor, page 55


Fetters: A chain formed of slave bracelets; each pair of bracelets locked at each end about one of the bracelets of another pair, the
whole thus forming a circle. Now they removed this chain of bracelets, and, one by one, removed the pairs, closing them about the
small wrists, behind their backs, of the female captives, now bonds-maids. These bracelets were of the sort to hold women in the
north. They are less ornate and finely tooled than those available in the south. But they are satisfactory for their purpose. They
consist of curved, hinged bands of black iron, three quarters of an inch in thickness. On one of each of the two curved pieces
constituting a bracelet there is a welded ring; the two welded rings are joined by a single link, about an inch in width, counting both
sides, each of which is about a quarter of an ich in diameter, and three inches long. Some of the girls cried out with pain as the
fetters, locking, bit into their wrists. Marauders of Gor, page 46


Walking Chains: The use of a light walking chain, teathering the ankles, meant to be worn abroad, accompnaying the master,
incidentally, is not uncommon in the regions of the Tahari. A beautifully measured gait is thought, in the Tahari, to be attractive in a
woman. There is dispute as to the desirable length of the stride, and the chain may be adjusted accordingly. To me it seems obvious
that one must experiment with the given girl. Height and hip structure vary. Tribesmen of Gor, page 45

I paused before a given stall, where light, walking chains were being sold. They were strung over racks rather like parrot perches.
Without much haggling, I bought one, which seemed to me pretty. They are adjustable, with rings, from a length as small as two
inches, for security, to a stride length of about twenty inches. Two keys are provided, each of which fits both ankle-ring locks.
Tribesmen of Gor, page 48 - 49


Dancing Chains: The girl in the long, light chain, smiled at me. She, at any rate, was pleased by my response. A wrist ring was
fastened on her right wrist. The long, slender, gleaming chain was fastened to this and, looping down and up, ascending gracefully to
a wide chain ring on her collar, through which it freely passed, thence decending, looping down, and ascending, looping up, gracefully,
to the left wrist ring. If she were to stand quietly, the palms of her hands on her thighs, the lower portions of the chain, those two
dangling loops, would have been about at the level of her knees, just a little higher. Kajira of Gor, page 185

The Four Chains: His girls served nude and chained. Each ankle and wrist ring had two staples. Each girl's wrists were joined by
about eighteen inches of chain and similarly for her ankles. Further each girl's left wrist was chained to her left ankle, and her right
wrist to her right ankle. This arrangement, lovely on a girl, produces the 'four chains,' from which the establishment took its name. The
four-chain chaining arrangement, of course, and variations upon it, is well known upon Gor. Explorers of Gor, page 42


Slave Strap: She wore a slave strap, a heavy strap, buckling in the back. In the front, at her belly, there was, fixed in the strap, a
plate and ring. Through the ring passed a chain, of come five inches in length, each end of which terminated in a bracelet. Her hands
were confined before her body. Hunter of Gor, page 65

Harl Ring: They were Harl rings, named for the slaver Harl of Turia, who is reported to have first used them. They consist, in effect, of
four portions. First, there is a metal ankle ring, which snaps about the girl's ankle. Second, to the back of the ring, there is welded a
closed loop. Third, to the front of the ring, fastened through another closed loop, is about a yard of chain. Fourth, this chain
terminates in a locking device, which may then be snapped shut, if one wishes, through the welded, closed loop on the back of a
second ankle ring. The Harl ring is a versatile piece of custodial hardware. It may be used to chain a girl to anything, say, about a
tree, or stanchion, or the ankle of another girl, and then locked about its own chain, or through one of the links of its own chain. The
chain, of course, may also be looped about, say, a tree, or a pillar in a public building, and the locking device snapped into the welded
ring on the back of the girl's own anle ring. This is called a closed Harl Loop. One of the most frequent uses of the Harl ring, of course,
is to form a segment in a slave chain, which may then be of any length, adding or removing girls, as short or long as the slaver
wishes. Hunder of Gor, page 208


The Iron Belt: She also wore an iron belt. This belt consisted of two major pieces, one was a rounded, fitted, curved, barlike
waistband, flattened at the ends; one end of this band, that on the right, standing behind the woman and looking forward, had a
heavy semicircular ring, or staple, welded onto it; the other flattened end of the waistband, looking forward, had a slot in it which
fitted over the staple; the other major portion of this belt consisted of a curved band of flat, shaped iron; one end of this flat band
was curved about, and closed about, the barlike waistband in the front; this produces a hinge; on the other end of this flat band of
iron is a slot; it fits over the same staple as the slot in the flattened end of the left side of the barlike waistband. The belt is then put
on the woman in this fashion. The waistband is closed about her, the left side, its slot penetrated by the staple, over the right side;
the flat U-shaped band of iron, contoured to female intimacies, is then swung up on its hinge, between her thighs, where the slot on
its end is penetrated by the staple, this keeping the parts of the belt in place. The whole apparatus is then locked on her, the tongue
of the padlock thrust through the staple, the lock then snapped shut. Kajira of Gor, page 103

I felt then the encircling clasp of metal closed about my waist, and then, swinging up between my legs, another piece of metal. These
things were fastened in place, the right side, and the lower portion, hasplike, over the staple on the left side of the apparatus. The
whole was then secured behind my back with a padlock. Once again I wore an iron belt. Dancer of Gor, page 99


Slave Hobble: The slave hobble consists of two rings, one for a wrist, the other for an ankle, joined by about seven inches of chain.
In a right-handed girl, such as either Aphris or Elizabeth, it locks on the right wrist and left ankle.  When the girl kneels, in any of the
traditional positions of the Gorean woman, either slave or free, it is not uncomfortable. Nomads of Gor, Page 154 - 155

Slave Sack. One of the simplest and most common is the slave sack, into which the girl, gagged, and with her hands braceleted
behind her back, is commonly introduced headfirst. These devices have in common the feature of ensuring the total helplessness of
the slave and, if one wishes, her ignorance of her destination, route and such.  Vagabonds of Gor, page125


Slave Stocks: "Put you hands on the armwrests," I said, "but back behind the slot in the armwrests. I will tell you when to bring
them forward." I then slid the lower board of a hinged pair of boards, with matching semicircular openings, into position in the slots in
the armrests. The height of this bottom board came about a hurt above the level of the armwrests. "You will now bring your hands
forward, placing your wrists in these semicircular openings." I told her. She did so, in an almost unreal, trancelike fashion. I then
swung the upper board up, on its hinge, and then down and over the lower board. I then, with the attached clip, using the hasp and
staple, locked the two boards together. "You are now in wrist stocks," I told her. I then thrust two clips through the matching rings,
one set on the stock and armwrest to my left, the other on the stock and armrest to my right, securing the stocks in the armrests.
"You are now in wrists stocks held on the benches," I said. "Although the prisoner is unable to reach any of the devices of closure
another might be able to do so. Thus, if one wishes, these devices could be locked into place."
She tried to withdraw her hands, but could not do so.
"Put your ankles back," I said.
I guided them into their places. The ankle stock is a simpler device, as the read board is part of the bench. I then found the front
board and fixed it in place. I then stepped back to regard her.
"Either the wrist or the ankle stocks would serve to keep you in place." I said. However, the wrist stocks may be removed from the
bench and serve as its own bond, if one wishes." Vagabonds of Gor, Page 254
Camisk: simple, slave garment, about 18 wide: simple
rectangle of cloth, containing in its center, a circular
opening, worn like a poncho, belted with binding fiber or
a light chain, flanks and brand are bared; favored in
Tharna. Guardsman of Gor page 107

Ta-Teera: a one piece, sleeveless, short slave garment;
also called the slave rag, most exciting of slave attire.
Guardsman of Gor page 107

Camisk: Turian: a style of camisk worn by slaves in the
city-state of Turia; it consists of a piece of cloth shaped
like an inverted 'T' with a beveled crossbar; it fastens
behind the neck,  falls before the wearer's body; the
crossbar then passes between her legs  is then brought
forward snugly at the hips; it is held in place by a single
cord that binds it at the back of the neck, behind the
back, then in front at the waist. Guardsman of Gor page
