In particular, both feel the Princess's power to control what happens.
As explained in the Outline of Devotional Sex, a Princess
the power to control all sensual and sexual activities. As well as
making things happen, she can use this power to ensure that things go
no further, and to end activities.
A weak Devotional Dynamic occurs when, even though a couple have agreed to practice Devotional Sex, one or both of them doubts that Princess Power will always apply.
The Princess might not feel confident that her Knight
really will do what she says, that he will stop an activity when she
says, and that he will accept that things will go no further than she

first learning Devotional Sex this will only occur during erotic
activities. Both partners will play their role, and know that the rules
will apply, but they will not yet have reached the stage where the
roles feel natural.
Once the couple are living Devotional Sex a
moderate dynamic continues even when the Knight is not aroused. His
wish to continue practicing Devotional Sex means that he will still
obey his Princess at such times, but primarily out of a sense of duty.
A strong Devotional Dynamic occurs when both the Princess and her Knight feel that Princess Power is real.
For a Princess this means that during sexual activity she feels relaxed and comfortable in the belief that nothing further need happen. She is relaxed about getting her Knight aroused because she can say "that's enough for now" at any time. Her freedom to tease can be lots of fun for both her and her Knight.
And if while enjoying just a cuddle her Knight becomes aroused, she can accept his arousal because she does not feel any pressure to respond.
