These “Goreans” believe that “male dominance and female submission constitute the natural order” (Moser and Kleinplatz 2007: 43). Gor represents a form of DS which is inflexible, conservative, and potentially quite patriarchal. In the late 1960s, Gor defined the parameters of BDSM in an extremely limiting way. Thankfully, this didn’t last. From the late 1960s through the mid1980s, Samuel R. Delany and James Tiptree, Jr. produced SF&F which was as kinky as anything John Norman could dream up, yet far more progressive in its erotic politics.

The relevant politics are surprisingly progressive. : 55). So it appears that Marston used the imagery of bondage and discipline to promote a progressive social and political agenda.
