xx Those Wacky Serves-Marcus of Ar
« Thread started on: Jan 15th, 2011, 6:10pm »

Just today I ran across an old favorite essay written by a favorite odltime Gorean writer, Marcus of Ar.
assite it originlly came from is long gone, I thought I would help preserve His wisdom by posting this one essay here:

~Those Wacky Serves~: by Marcus of Ar
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thinking back to the early days of the Silk & Steel Tavern, on IRC DALnet, in 1996, I recall that the "serves" were precisely what the name entails. The slave in question would describe herself going over, getting paga or ka-la-na or whatever, and bringing it to the Free Gorean she was serving.

Over a period of time, certain Masters made it evident that they wished to be served a certain way. The slaves complied. The serves got more complex.

Then, individuals who were new to online Gorean interaction came in, saw the more complex serves, and began to emulate them, thinking that must be "how it was done."

Then, a few creative (and probably bored) slaves started to craft their own unique service styles, applying their own "spin" to how Masters were served. Some Masters responded well to this, and praised them for it.

Other slaves saw this praise, and the "service wars" began. : )

Soon, girls were running around in dozens of channels, accusing others of "stealing my serve!" and getting more complex, and more "out there" with their service, to attact attention to themselves.

So... what had begun as a simple "paga, Master?" turned into the online equivalent of a fashion show runway. The slaves were serving in strange and unique ways in order to call attention to themselves, as a means of blatant self-advertisment. This makes a certain amount of sense, after all, since so many of the individuals who log into Gorean channels to interact as "slaves" seem simply to be people who are, for some reason or other, starved for attention; either that, or they have been duped by Western Earth's media-driven society into buying into the concept of the "Cult of Celebrity," a concept which dictates that unless one is standing in the spotlight being looked upon by a group of other people, that one has somehow "failed" as a human being. Attention is craved, and behaving online in a way which constantly calls attention to one is one way to obtain it.

Eventually, we kinda had to put an end to that in S&S, simply by not responding to such long-winded, ridiculous serves... ergo, discouraging them by ignoring them.

Meanwhile, in the great Gorean hinterlands of online taverns, inns, war camps, etc., many slaves continue to run around like vulos with their heads cut off, seeking the "correct way" and inventing, or copying, bizarre service rituals, appropos of nothing Gorean.

Plus, there are still online Masters who insist on being served a particular way, which is their right. Though the zillions of variations, the proponents of each of which consider to be "correct," can be damned confusing for the slaves.

Just the other day, I dropped into an IRC channel which described itself as a Gorean tavern, and while discussing a matter with the channel owner, I made the mistake of asking for a paga.

Up jumped the "star" slave of the channel, to serve me.

Let's see... I learned all about her nipples. I noticed that she moaned softly whenever she did anything. I got to see her ass peeking out from under her silks. I got to watch as she praised the Priest-Kings, danced to the three moons of Gor, held the bowl to her heart and whispered a "lil' kajira prayer" for my health and well being.

By this time, twenty minutes had passed. I had finished my conversation with the channel owner, and just sat there, silently waiting for the paga to arrive, not wanting to insult the hospitality of the channel by leaving before it reached me.

It finally did. And the slave promptly took the bowl of paga, tucked it in and among her pubes, rubbed her you-know-what all over the rim, and presented it to me with a grand flourish.

I didn't know whether to applaud or to puke, quite frankly. The girl's ID claimed she was red-silk. Who knows what else has been in her crotch lately?

I accepted the paga and told her to return to serve others, which she did with a smile.

I set the paga down on the table and thanked the channel owner for his friendly conversation. As I was about to leave, another free man messaged me and said "I notice you didn't drink the paga that slave brought to you."

I replied... "Yes. But SHE didn't notice. She doesn't CARE. She got to do her thing, and is happy as a clam about it. Where do my needs or wants fit into her agenda, or her good time? She does this for herself. Period."

I then left the channel.

I would rather have a clumsily written, badly described, three sentence serve which is typed by the earnest hands of a girl who really has my wishes and enjoyment at heart, than a slickly written serve with an accompanying brass band and fireworks from some chick who doesn't care about me, only about herself.

But... that's just me. Some guys like "slave juice" in their beverages. Some men like a table dance along with their drink. Some men don't care about anything but the floorshow.

Now, me? I don't grade on atmosphere or the floorshow. I grade on quality of service.

Which reminds me of a little haiku I wrote, a few years back:

"Nine paragraphs? Wow!
Why won't she shut up and just
Pour the damn paga?"

I wish you well!

wonderful Mistress Lita..thank You for sharing.

it reminds this girl of a long time ago in Steal Dawn. she wanted a particular Master...quite bad, actually....so she added rim sweetening to her serve. dena had never seen it done and has never done it since. It was only to get that one Master.

next week...every kajira in there was doing the very same...*laughs* gotta watch what One improvises sometimes.

There is a difference between the kiss of the free woman and the kiss of the slave girl; the slave girl yields to her master; the difference is unmistakable. It is said that he whose lips have never touched those of a slave girl does not know, truly, what it is to hold a woman in his arms.

I considered the unilaterality of the master/slave relationship. All power is with the master. This, of course, has its effect upon the slave. Let her strive to be such that her master will keep her.

thank you, Mistress Lita for sharing this..

tersa believes that even though Gorean Shores has a set standard for serving that each girl is able to add her own "spice" to the serve by just being herself, making it uniquely her own.

sameer has pondered on the time it takes slaves to serve, but assume if a free wants the serve to be shorter they would say harta.

~smiles then frowns as first thought meant Lita was back~

Indeed this is a sweet memory of something shared between and talked about many times between Her and I.
