“What are the possibilities of such a relationship working over the internet? Also, both men and women are prone to cheating on internet partners. Seeing you feel so strongly about the mutual respect, trust, “cherish your partner”, all those things mentioned in the one post of yours. Do those “rules” then apply to a virtual relationship as well? I’m totally new to this entire concept….”
What rules apply to a relationship are up to those actively engaged in that relationship. Some people find that online relationships lack a physical aspect and therefore find that it’s entirely appropriate for their partners to seek affection in real life. Others cannot emotionally deal with the idea of their partner being with someone else physically and find that online play is sufficient for both of them. Either way, communication and honesty are key to making an online relationship last. If you are open about your expectations and desires, then you will find a relationship (online or real life) that works for you.
Since the start of ASI we’ve always suggested the first step to talking to your partner about BDSM is going over our BDSM checklist. It’s a great way to break the ice, introduce new ideas and begin an open discussion about your desires.
Our list is extensive and over the past 10 months it has grown quite a bit! We’ve put a lot of work into creating this list and if you ever have questions about some of the terms, you are welcome to contact us.
We decided to transfer our original checklist into a handy printable Word document and an easy to read PDF file. It is condensed down to 8 pages with two columns per page (to reduce pages used when printing). If you ever have a question about the list, you can always contact us.
Remember, our checklist will always be free. You’ll never be charged to download it, so feel free to download it now… or later!
