(News) Fantasy Sex Cults in Darlington???

Hubbards not the only Sci-Fi Author to have spawned a religion...

Apparently John Normans "Gor" series from the 1960's has also spawned a sex-cult. There are some estimated 25,000 followers worldwide and even a splinter-group called the Kaotians.


It's been described as a bizarre sex-cult by Police who raided a house in Darlington after receiving complaints that people were being held their agianst their will. The complaints came from family members and friends of those living there but the police could find no evidence of people being constrained against their will or any other illegal activity.

Gor's been around in the fetish scene for years, considering the chap (aged 31) led a girl into the local butchers on a leash, this isn't much news, more League of Gentlemen.

Oddly, I encountered a bunch of Paga Taverners some years ago. They matched John Norman's physical ideal about as much as you'd expect.

I read about it in Metro this morning - a very biased report I thought.

Cross to A Scene in Darkest Darlington
In a Darlington high street, two bondsmaidens meet.

"Alraight Bev, how ye doing?"
"Alright Dawn, got a bit of a sniffle again... nowt much to complain about."
"How'd you get that then?"
"Oh, it were our Gerald, the daft bugger left me tied up on t'leash outside the pub again. I wouldn't mind the flu, but that flamin chainmail bikini's started rustin' again, an' it chafes like merry hell"
"Aye, it does at that. Our Brian never learns neither"
"Anyhow, must get on. Got to get to "Goats R'us" for some dinner for us lizards..."

Why is it only bad science fiction that spawns cults?
