More on Submission

I've been on the topic of submission lately and I thought I'd share the comments on submission I found on Submissive Awakening's site at

"Submission is beauty. It is a beauty that comes from the very soul of a submissive woman..It is a breaking down of the walls built up in her lifetime, allowing the beautiful, sensual woman to come through.

"Submission is about sensuality. It is about trust, communication, vulnerability, caring and honesty. It is about being a graceful, sensual, beautiful woman thatresides within.

"Submission is about knowing who you are, and what you want. A submissive is NOT a weak person but just the opposite. She is strong. She is strong in herself and in the iknowledge of who she is. She NEVER submits out of weakness or desperation. She submits out of strength, love and trust.

"Submission is freedom. It is a letting go of one's self, knowing that the Dominant is there to catch her if she falters. It is about pushing to be the very best one can be, not only as a submissive, but as a woman.''
The author is listed as unknown.

And here's a quote from a sex therapist named William Henkin:

"Submission can actually engender power: realizing that you have something to give, and that you are capable of mastering your own will to give it up the way your top wants it, can inspire pride: Not false pride of an inflated ego, but the true pride that, like humility, comes from knowing the depths of yourself.''

And a quote from Valraen:

"Without my dominance you cannot submit. Without your submission I cannot dominate. You are my equal in this, though our roles a different.''

Your thoughts?


  1. Oh my gosh Valraen's quote is so beautiful!

  2. Thank you, Florida Dom for sharing your thoughts. Just today, I read Valreans quote and thought "how true those words are!".

    Your posts are thought provoking. I'm enjoying going through your archives. Thank you!

    Take care, Sky

  3. "Submission is freedom. It is a letting go of one's self, knowing that the Dominant is there to catch her if she falters. It is about pushing to be the very best one can be, not only as a submissive, but as a woman.''

    I loved this!! Very beautiful! Exactly how I feel! Freedom! My HOH is there to catch me when I fall!! I try to be the very best wife for my S, as submissive and wife.

    Thank you for sharing this... I also think Valraen's quote is beautiful! Spot on!

  4. Mpockingbird: Yes, it is beautiful.

    Sky: Good to hear you enjoy going through the archives.

    Mikki: It is nice that your HOH is there to catch you.


  5. Thank you for sharing those quotes! I love Valraen's.

  6. Great quotes, thank you! I especially like the last! Sara

  7. Oh my, I love that Valrean quote.

    I have a similar quote that I bookmarked:

    "My mentor once told me something that truly rang clear.

    He asked "You have no idea who has the true control do you?"

    My response was that of which any would expect from someone of my age at the time who was very dominant and 'owned' two girls. "I do. But above me there are those who lead the house"

    He laughed. "The girls have the true power. You think I am testing you right? Well I am not and here is why. Think about, yes, our 'kajira' do have a desire to serve and find fulfillment in belonging to us. But she allows us power, our control. She chooses to let you punish her, to let you own her. Nothing is really binding her to you. There is no reason why she couldn't take that collar off and walk out that door. Now I know for me, if I didn't have my girl I would go crazy because of my need to dominate. And see there is the difference, they desire to serve and we -need- them to."


  8. True submission IS beautiful and sensual. Thank you for such a thoughtful post. The ultimate goal of true freedom is one of the biggest reasons why my submission is so dear to my heart.

  9. I adore the last quote, the one by Valrean! It just rings so absolutely true. Every word, and the last part sums it up so nicely, equals with different roles. I think I need to steal it for my blog.

    Thanks for sharing these quotes!


  10. I thought all the quotes terrific but the quote from William Henkin is so powerful and I think he is quite right. Mastering your own will to give it up the way your top wants does indeed engender a pride in yourself. When it is all working beautifully between the two people, it is living life on a deep and rich level, for sure.

  11. I want to thank you Florida Dom for following my blog.

  12. I love the one about being vulnerable and graceful, that resonates with me. I have found ways to celebrate my fragility instead of trying to put on a tough shell- it's important to him, enough that walls are simply not allowed.

  13. My Chloe, very willing offered to be my sub, which I accepted. This was an amazing gift of herself that she offered and I treasure it....treasure her...the thoughts you have shared mirror her so is a beautiful thing...she submits to me out of the trust we have...her confidence she has in who she is as a woman(a very strong one...I find that so attractive and sexy)...her adoration and caring for me...barriers shed...I am always gentle...tender...respectful of is truly amazing and has deepen the love we have for one another. Look for a post on C & J in the near about this topic.
