Why Gor is attractive to females

Recommended Posts

When women were still living in primitive little tribes where there was a constant threat of the men being knocked off by other tribes, we were more inclined to submit to the most aggressive, strongest and dominant male to ensure the tribe's continuation via strong offspring. The men also had to worry about their women being picked off and kidnapped by the competitors, so they kept them close, possessive of their healthy, fit mates.

If they had to, they would intimidate their women into not picking berries or collecting water after dark. Stockholm syndrome was rife; but the women, although frustrated and even scared of their mates, were biologically inclined to feel attracted to their assertiveness. 

Our civillization might have advanced dramatically and our social norms have changed considerably, but I believe we still possess those primitive inclinations that were integral to the survival of our tribes and ultimately, our survival. (After all, evolution takes hundreds of thousands of years at the least)

 

So, today we just play pretend.

Actually much evidence suggests the development of agriculture ramped up the concept of war into something beyond small 'gang fights'.

- Cooperation and planning have always been what made us able to rise above chimp-dom or bonobo-dom (being too passive limits you). Some aggression is useful, too much is crippling.

Slavery and total loss of self, concepts of submission and such - are counter-productive to survival for a group at a smaller level. You simply do not have the luxury of 'excess people' or of extreme power dynamics. A great example is people captured by plains Indians of North America - people living at survival level. Captives either joined and became equals, or were cast off. They did not have the 'luxury' to keep slaves or prisoners for long.

Primative societies can sometimes be brutal - you can take the chimp path, but they are often rather egalitarian.
