Certainly my body must be yours according to the teaching of a loyal heart.  “I am taking part in your amusement in such a way that I shall yet attain what will bring happiness to my heart or—die utterly without joy. That is a dire threat for me if you wish me to go to ruin. Into your power I have surrendered both soul and body.
