“The way a man should treat his partner is analogous to the way a knight
serves his queen. He demands nothing, and acts not only according to
her will, but also independently, in her best interests. He represents her
outside of her presence, taking that responsibility with deep reverence.
His world revolves around her. His every action is in her service. She
cares deeply for her knight, relies on him to carry out and enforce her
will, and trusts him to act in accordance with her laws and desires.
This is what service-oriented D/s, is about.”
