I am a highly sexual, sadistic, Dominant man. I am willing and able to engage a consenting, informed, adult partner in extreme forms of sexual activity, and sensation play. I am willing to engage them in humiliation and embarrassment, I will use insulting descriptions and speak in the foulest of language if that is their desire. I will engage informed and consenting friends in order to present to a partner more complex forms of safe sexual role playing.
But underneath all of that, enforcing every element of what we may do is the core intent that I will treat them with respect. I will work to be informed of their desires and the emotional and historical elements that have brought their desires into play. I will accept that what they express is their considered and honest intent. If they wish, no matter what their biological state might be, to be treated as an animal, piece of furniture, or member of the opposite sex, if they are, for no matter what length of time, my partner, that is how they will be treated, because, unless they show me otherwise, they are worthy of that respect.
Because of this, some would question if I am a sadist (say that when I have my whip in my hand, pilgrim), some would call me a service top. Personally, I would strive to be thought a Gentleman.
