When you are with others and are role playing as both being big or little people, often there is going to be various degree of intimacy between each other. Be it poking, tickling or snuggling. It makes the session a little more meaningful, but at the same time not to over do it and overwhelm anyone and make them uncomfortable.
I was wondering what are others people's attitudes towards intimacy is?
For me, I would like to be seen to be very open about it, and general role playing in text on IRC. I find it generally enjoyable , however am much more stern about it when it comes to IRL.
Generally, I go into safe politically correct mode and try to cause the least offense, and that's by doing nothing. I am very conscious over making other people uncomfortable, as well as giving the wrong messages that I would be bonding more, or fooling myself that that they mean something more than they originally intended.
I have this awful rejection of being close to anyone, and I generally feel I have and will continue to disappoint and upset a number of people because of this. And I will always feel guilty for that. I do want to be intimate with some one, but always pretend to be too adult and professional, and just don't get personal at all.
A lot of it involves around being naive and generally very fearful, and doesn't make the experience enjoyable at all. Generally seen as a very insecure person when it comes to dealing with other people beyond the operation.
That said, I am mostly happy to receive affection. But have really enjoyed it from some people and really found it uncomfortable from others. And I haven't put my finger on as to why, and what makes people different. But That's another reason I don't like to provoke anything, because I might not like it when people try to reciprocate.
