What do you feel are the roots of your submission? Do you think it has something to do with childhood? Is it a relationship management tool as in the practice of domestic discipline? Is it a sexual thrill or something else?
I think a lot of it is the way I was raised: to respect my elders and superiors. I’m Chinese and was adopted when I was very young, but my American family has a similar, albeit less misogynistic, demand that those younger respect their elders. It may be partly due to not having a father—who knows? I think it’s both “a relationship management tool” and “a sexual thrill.”
