I hope you had a great week. Mine was a little busy, which caused me to get behind in responding to comments on the last topic. I apologize for not getting to them sooner and for not responding in greater length to some of them. Just another one of those times when worked had to take precedence over other, more pleasant, activities. Anyway, I hope you all had a good week.
This week's topic extended from one FLR/DD wife's account of an incident with her husband that set the stage for their FLR relationship. I won't go into any details, because they are hers to share or not share, but the short version is he did something that made her so upset that she finally just blew up and took over. It recently occurred to me that, while I knew the details of the incident itself and that it caused her to start seriously exploring an FLR, I didn't actually know how the two came to be connected in her mind. In other words, what was it that caused her to link the problems in the relationship with the solution of FLR and DD.
At an even simpler level, what I am asking is, how did you first learn of DD and FLR as possible tools to use in a relationship, or as possible lifestyle choices? I recognize that I ask this coming from the minority perspective of someone who did not have a pre-existing obsession with spanking that later naturally extended into DD, and I definitely had never heard of the concept of DD until well into my 30s. Had I not seen some reference to the Disciplinary Wives Club, I'm not sure I would have ever come to know the concept even existed. So, for me, the progression went in short order from not thinking at all about adult spanking, to seeing an episode of Real Sex on HBO that focused on erotic spanking and that caused some reaction in me and led to a short and fairly unfulfilling period of experimentationwith erotic spanking, to finding the DWC and becoming very fixated on the whole concept. And, were my wife to answer this question, she would say she heard about DD from me after I found the DWC website and very tentatively asked her to look at it.
So, how did you first learn about DD and FLR as lifestyle concepts? The internet? If so, was there a particular website? Maybe read about in an erotic magazine or book? Knew a friend in the lifestyle? Had a dramatic blow up fight with your spouse and one of you somehow came up with the idea of using spanking to fix the situation?
I hope you all have a great weekend. Also, please note that I posted a new poll that seeks to test the frequency of spanking, and I also re-started the poll that seeks information on whether our readers are in an active DD relationship.
