True Service

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The questions comes along periodically as to what is a submissive or a slave or even a bottom? In my view it comes down to service, what level of service are you providing your top/dominant/master? This can range from none other than play to being selflessly devoted in service to them.

If you are only "serving" as a play thing, there is no service outside of play scenes, then you are a bottom, seems simple, but so many attempt to argue the point.

If you are providing services, but retain your right to decide what and when you will do so, or maintain limits on what types of service you will provide, then you most likely are a submissive.

The last category is the slave, these are the submissives who serve selflessly, with their very being, they truly belong to another, and show it in how they serve them. They do not need to be told to serve, they simply do, if it pleases their master or mistress then it pleases them, as they have given themselves to pleasing them, and do not worry over their place, because they know it is theirs always.

"Master, go on, and I will follow thee To the last gasp with truth and loyalty." - William Shakespeare
