I question the value of conflating those elements of traditional and modern sexuality which we dislike, rolling them up into this single idea of "submission". Xana embodies proactive power in her attitude to sex. She's the male stereotype of the leering lecher in female form. On the question of reactive power, I find her to be mute; questions of refusal or submission never arise. It would require a particularly tortured chain of reasoning to explain her aggressive, domineering behaviour as submissiveness.

Which is not to say that she offers a positive role model, an entertaining characterisation, or much of anything besides embarrassment for your hobby. I just don't see her subjugating anyone.
