What’s your opinion of online BDSM play?
I don’t have a problem with it in the slightest, in any way, shape, or form.
For some people (particularly inexperienced or curious submissive men, in my personal experience), online relationships offer a degree of anonymity that in-person relationships don’t. It helps them feel more protected, less vulnerable, while giving them the chance to explore their fantasies and their urges. There’s no danger of anyone in his RT life finding out.
For others, there’s simply a connection made, either through blogging, or chatrooms, or sites like Fetlife, that’s undeniably intense. And why not explore it? Why limit yourself? Do you know what’ll happen in the future? Do you know, for a fact, that a relocation could never happen, for any reason?
No, you don’t. So go for it. Why the hell not?
Having said that, I will say that online relationships aren’t usually my thing. There have been exceptions, obviously, but it’s not something I actively seek out. But if it’s something you’re into, or you happen to find yourself in one, then great! Have fun.
