Tarl Cabot has always believed himself to be a citizen of Earth. He has no inkling that his destiny is far greater than the small planet he has inhabited for the first twenty-odd years of his life. One frosty winter night in the New England woods, he finds himself transported to the planet of Gor, also known as Counter Earth, where everything is dramatically different from anything he has ever experienced. It emerges that Tarl is to be trained as a Tarnsman, one of the most honored positions in the rigid, caste-bound Gorean society. He is disciplined by the best teachers and warriors that Gor has to offer . . . but to what end? Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire. Tarnsman of Gor is the 1st book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

This is the novel that created the "Gorean lifestyle" a type of BDSM where women are slaves.

“Some slaves purely serve as sexual objects, while others are masterful at cooking. Slaves do not question anything. They do as they are told. Refusal to do anything results in discipline. Slaves must strive for perfection."

“Not only must slaves do their work well, but it must be done in a feminine, graceful way that expresses their sexuality. Gorean women retain the right to refuse slavery."

“If a master wants to enslave a woman and she refuses, however, she may be killed.”

First read this in the mid 70s and just finished reading it again. It is a good escapist fantasty read.
