Gor it is! Congrats, a scantily clad virtual slave girl will bring you the zipper...
Slave 1 or Slave 2?
If black wine is being served, I expect handing me the zipper would be one of the First Slave's many duties, since the Second Slave is the one who does the pouring rather than setting out the service. But this isn't the rule everywhere.
On Gor, the zipper is unknown; some means of fastening the clothing must, of course, be used; a simple sash or belt is often adequate; a slave's costume is typically secured with a loop at the shoulder such that the girl may be completely undressed with a single movement; this is not always the case; the zipper is, of course, well within the ability of members of the Caste of Builders to devise; the actual making of them would not be a fitting task for the Builders, who are a High Caste; such work would be undertaken by the Cloth Workers and the Metal Workers; both these Castes guard their Caste Rights jealously; a zipper consists of both cloth parts and metal parts; neither Caste would willingly undertake the work of the other, nor, too, would they permit the other Caste to undertake their own; cooperation between Castes is by no means unknown, but unlikely for such a trivial purpose as this; too, zippers are prone to mechanical failure; some climates are unsuited to zippers, such as those which are sandy, salty or moist; these environments may cause zippers to jam; this could not be tolerated for slave garments, which a master may wish to be removed instantly; too, zippers may trap hairs or skin; Goreans would see no virtue in a zipper; they prefer simple, organic closures such as laces, thongs, or arrangements which the men of Earth would recognise as buttons, though possibly different in construction; too, these other closures may be worked decoratively, to the great enhancement of the garments on which they are used; this also the zipper lacks; consequently, on Gor the zipper is unknown.
Now for a question. From black wine to Mulch Wine - if you were trading this, or Finest Dust, or Megalith Paperweights, what would you be playing?
