Hello. Quick details: I'm 20, from Los Angeles and a DL, sometimes ABish should the moment feel just right. Ever since I was about 16, I've had an interest in the scene (based more in feelings of comfort than fetishism) and have been able to indulge in it a bit more in the last few years I've been living on my own (in private; I've never disclosed it to any friends/girlfriends).
About a year ago I tried getting involved with the online AB/DL community, but quickly became disillusioned with it: the people I met were...strange, often mean and everything was sex, sex, sex...it was really offputting. I came across this site a few days and was rather impressed; it seems like a relaxed, mellow, supportive *community*, not just a bunch of guys trying to show you their nude pictures.
I also have no idea why I chose the name "PurpleGecko"...I always panic when I get to those "Enter Username" boxes and just tend to type out any random words I can think of. I don't even like geckos...they look sticky.
