I've been here a little while and I've not been involved at all with the community because that's not what I came here for. But I received a PM saying to make an intro so... hello?
I guess many people are here to talk with people with similar interests but I'm here for a different reason, hence why I'm not making an effort to become involved. I'll admit a long-term (10 years semi-conscious; 5 years concious) personal interest but it's not something I intend to physically indulge in!
Rather, I'm here because I'm curious about certain aspects of IC and AB that I want to have a more objective understanding of rather than just relying on what my own imagination conjures. Other websites seem to focus too much on AB as a paraphilia and, although I like this on a personal level, it's not what I'm looking for. I find articles on the subject are too broad and impersonal - a forum post feels more genuine.
I wasn't planning to reveal anything about myself, but if it makes anyone more comfortable: I'm British; I'm a fiction writer (GLBTQ romance & erotic fiction); I study languages; I love East Asian & Scandinavian pop music and I adore Boy George with my whole heart and soul. ♥
