My boyfriend and I are in a long term relationship, and we have a D/s dynamic. Normally we get to play at some level several times a week, but as of today we’re going to be seperated and long distance for 4 weeks because of his work. He’ll only be a few hours away but with my own work and other commitments I likely won’t be able to get away to visit him. I know that pretty soon it’s going to get hard on both of us not having that physical connection and time together. We have a rough plan on how we can keep up basic tasks and things like that, but I’m still hoping for more to make the time apart easier. I know the situation is only temporary but not having the physical connection or the same intensity of things is going to be difficult.
So far he’s set up a habit tracker on our phones so I know my daily tasks and he can keep track of when I’m doing them. I have extra rules and things to do daily to help keep me feeling submissive to him, and so he knows I’m taking care of myself properly and still doing everything I should. He’s going to call me every day, or every other day depending on time and energy levels, and occasionally we’ll play over a video call.
Has anyone else experienced a long distance D/s relationship? Do you have any tips or advice? And suggestions for punishments and rewards that can be done with distance?
