Now I'm a business analyst and project manager. In many ways it does play to my nurturing side, often I feel like I'm running around "pleasing" the client and taking care of those who work for me, playing peace maker between the two sides, making sure every one has what they need. On the other hand, it IS a leadership role with huge levels of responsibility, no doubt about that. I also hold leadership roles outside of work as well, so coming home is a switch to a different nurturing role, but still in charge, still the responsibilities. I'm not only "mom" to my family, but half my friends and coworkers to.
I think, from the women I know, you are right they are nurturers. However often they are not in the typical fields you'd expect for this, quite the opposite, so perhaps that's the disconnect and part of the reason they like to play a slave.

But, my job is a bit out of the ordinary, I train women to be phone sex actresses, and I monitor and moderate such conversations when I am not training. so um, I really get to hear it all, and just as an aside, the Gorean taverns are way tame!
