100 days of solitude

One of my favourite authors is Gabriel García Márquez. and my favourite novels of his are Love in the Time of Cholera and 100 Years of Solitude. They are both titles that lend themselves to our current situation.

I hope we don't have 100 years of solitude! Even 100 days will be bad if it comes to that.

I wonder how submissives and dominants are managing if they are necessarily separated. How successfully can a D/s relationship survive at a distance?

Clearly it is very different from a real time D/s or relationship with face to face (or other bodily parts!) personal contact. However many do have virtual or long distance relationships.

Some years ago I had a number of very successful and fulfilling online D/s and BDSM relationships. They were very real and very meaningful for me and I believe for my partners. Much of the communication was by email and messaging rather than by videoing. It was amazing how powerful this could be.

If you are trying to maintain a BDSM relationship at a distance, I hope it is working well for you. Who knows it may get even more intense through the effort in making new protocols work.

Good luck.
