Gor Lives!

Turns out there's a sex-slave cult devoted to the science fiction world of Gor whose proponents are merrily going about their existence in Britain.
A sex slavery cult based on a series of 1960s science fiction novels has been uncovered by police in Darlington. Durham Police discovered the bizarre sect after raiding a home in the area, after receiving complaints that a woman was being held against her will.

But a spokesman said the Canadian was a willing participant and the other people involved were consenting adults.

The group, called Kaotians, follow the Chronicles of Gor novels which depict a society where women are dominated...

Kaotians are a splinter group of the Goreans, which base their beliefs on novels written by American university professor John Norman.

The books are set on the quasi-medieval planet of Gor, which has a caste system and uses women as slaves.

There are an estimated 25,000 Goreans worldwide.
Of course, in the books Gor was on another planet. I suppose these types consider themselves "exiles from their homeworld."

So, is there a Hollywood branch yet? Competing, say, with L. Ron Hubbard's group?
