Has your kinky online long distance relationship made the leap to living, working and breathing down each other's necks every day? Not sure what comes next or how to handle it? Kayla Lords fills you in on what to expect when your relationship goes from long distance to full on all day/every day.

Every day, more and more kinky people meet online. People learn about BDSM online, find partners, test out new desires, and develop very real, very loving D/s relationships all through an internet connection.
Look around on Fetlife and Tumblr, and D/s long distance relationships almost feel like the norm. People cross countries and oceans to spend a weekend or a week together, filling the time with as much kinky sex and BDSM fun as possible, only to be separated again. Reliance on video chats, text messaging, phone calls, and emails is very real - a requirement, really.
Taking a big leap of faith and turning your long distance kinky relationship into an all day/every day relationship is huge. It comes with certain expectations and requirements, and there’s plenty to prepare yourself for.
Take it from someone who loved her Daddy Dom for 18 months with a 440 mile separation and still loves him more than two years later now that we live, sleep, eat, and get kinky together everyday.

In ANY relationship fear is normal.


This is a scary move. One (or both) of you are moving, leaving jobs, family, and friends, to be together. There’s always the chance it won’t work out. Don’t pretend the fear isn’t there, and don’t worry that it’s a sign. Talk about your fears and discuss how you can handle the things that scare you.

You Can’t Wait for the Perfect Moment


Like having a baby or quitting your job, there’s almost never an exact perfect moment in life to make a big change. If you wait for perfect, you’ll wait forever. What you can do is make a plan and set goals, and make the move when you’ve met those goals (saving a certain amount of money, finding a new job, etc.).

It’s Not All Kinky Sex: Going from intense 'get as much as you can when you can' long distance relationship sex to 'every day' sex.


You know how your visits are filled with sex in hotels, sex in strange places, sex in sex clubs? That’s because you’re fitting in as much sex as possible while you can - and your hormones are practically melting your body. When you live with your kinky partner, the amount of sex you have will slow down a little (sometimes a lot). Maybe not at first - I remember our first two weeks together, we had wake-up sex, lunchtime sex, bedtime sex, and shower sex - but it did slow down.

Long Distance Relationship gets Real: Get Used to Smells, Noises, and Quirky Habits


Confession time - people fart. They burp. They poop. Yes, even your dreamy, perfect, best ever kinky partner. Now that you’re living together, you’re about to be up close and personal with their smells, noises, and quirky habits. Don’t try to hide your own, and don’t be shocked when you discover just how gross it can be to live with someone 24/7 - I don’t care how good they look in their Dom suit or all that leather.

Reality Check for a Long Distance Relationship turned 24/7: The First Fight Sucks


long distance relationshipYou may have fussed and argued, and yes, even fought while you were long distance. It happens, and it’s normal. But that very first real fight when you live together is the worst. You’re looking at each other, seeing the hurt and anger on the other’s face, and it can feel like this is a relationship-ending moment. Most of the time, it’s not. Most of the time, you just need to talk it out, cry, and make up. Kinky make-up sex is the best, in case you wondered.

Exploration is More Fun


Before, when you were long distance, you explored your kinky desires but most of it was probably verbal while you used your hand. Now, you can read something together (or watch it), talk about it, and try it out - together. It won’t happen as often as you like (especially if you’ve got kids or major family obligations) but when it does, it’s much better than a one-handed wank.

Making It Work Has Little To Do With Kink


Sure, you embraced your kinky ways and the BDSM lifestyle, and those relationships require a lot of communication. But making your kinky or D/s relationship work on a day-to-day basis has little to do with kink and everything to do with communication, compromise, and love. If you pay attention to your relationship, discuss what’s on your mind, and commit to each other - every day - you can have a lasting kinky relationship.

In the two years my Daddy Dom and I have lived together, we’ve battled cranky kids, career changes, family illnesses and death, and family craziness. It wasn’t always easy, and it definitely wasn’t always kinky, but we are closer now than during our long distance relationship, and I imagine we’ll be closer a year from now than we are today.
You can live the dream and take your D/s relationship from long distance to all day/every day. Keep your expectations realistic. Be prepared to work hard. And don’t forget to get kinky as often as you can.
