Ever get the feeling, when you hear about all the "classic" categories of submissive, that there must be one missing? You know which one we're talking about. The missing submissive is the one that is the wicked-smart, strong-willed, uber-competent, ultra-competitive, synergistic, switchy, crusader. She's no one's doormat, never a victim. She is a kick-ass submissive for the 21st century. Think: Xena, the Warrior Princess, kneeling at the feet of Hercules.
This definitely isn't a woman in a precarious predicament waiting helplessly for her white knight to arrive and slay a dragon for her. This was a woman who, as she is kicking the dragon's ass, smiles at the white knight standing on the sidelines and says, "Hey, buddy! Feel free to jump right in and lend your sword to this fight. Otherwise, stay the hell out of my way!" The Warrior Princess doesn't need or want a rescuer. The Warrior Princess needs an ally that she can rely upon in the chaos of battle. She seeks a warrior equal to the tasks that she has already chosen for herself, and is demonstrably capable of accomplishing with, or without, his help. She is willing and able to fight the good fight alone, but welcomes the notion of having a worthy partner, fighting by her side. And yet, when the day's fighting is done, she is perfectly at ease with considering herself entirely his - heart, might, mind, body, and soul.
Why is she important? She is important because she just may be the hope and salvation of this lifestyle. There will come a day, in the not too distant future, when the Warrior Princess Submissive will be forced to become a combatant in a highly politicized war on the BDSM lifestyle. It will be a propaganda war that characterizes all dominants as abusers and all submissives as victims of abusive and exploitative relationships.

I bought the audio book from audible.com. It is a definite must-read (or must-listen) for everyone,
Especially submissive men! Though written in the "she" format,
Michael Makai explains that he did so for the ease of the reader. i've known many men who were unable to imagine themselves in certain submissive roles, but were not comfortable in Dominant roles, either. Makai writes,
"Think of a general kneeling at the foot of his Queen or King." There is
help and understanding here in this book for you too! :)
The text is good and playful, making this an easy yet attention keeping read. It's mostly a continuation of his previous work but his intention, now, is to shine a spotlight on the strengths of those individuals that identify as submissive. Focusing specifically on an archetype of sub that exudes powerful dominant tendencies in Mundania yet is joyfully submissive in her private life.
"a must read"
wow this book blew my mind, having been into the D/s lifestyle now for 2 years and been curious/looking for a sub to match me and having read his other book. it did leave me looking for a sub for me and this book just was WOW yup thats my kind of submisisve. while i would call her *Warrior Goddess sub* rather then princess thats just my opinion/taste. but its for those who wants to look for a sub thats more then slave/pet. and for sub who dont feel like they fit in the story of O or gor type of subs/slaves.
