I'd say that overall I agree with this statement ; but it did cause me to stop and think......perhaps it needs rephrased?
First, it is not I who is training my mind or body, that is the role of my Dom. I am an eager and most often pliable student, but I am not teaching myself.
Second, he does seek to meet my needs and protect me but that is reciprocated, as meeting your partner's needs is a goal from both sides (or should be).
Third, though submission is not 'about' pain, per se, I know I am not the only masochistic submissive in this world, and for us, pain is very much a part of our submission. There are many facets to my submission, and more nuances than I could possibly explain, but included in this delicate mix is certainly the pain I endure, whether for punishment or pleasure.
Maybe I am being too analytical today? :)
