At the end of the day, what is it that longterm couples crave most? I'm sure you're sitting there rattling off Dr.Phil answers like comfort, trust, stability, and respect. You wouldn't be wrong, you know. Those things are very important, but are they enough?
Complacency isn't just the enemy of progress, it's the enemy of romance too. Keeping things fresh and interesting in your relationship isn't so much a suggestion as it is a warning. Couples get stuck in a rut—it starts with a yawn, then a bar, then a wink, then an affair. It's the REAL tale as old as time, long before Beauty and The Beast was a thing.
This isn't meant to scare you, or even to suggest that sex is the most important thing in a relationship, but rest assured, it IS important. It's a barometer for everything else in the relationship and if there's ONE thing these anonymous couples know, it's that very fact.
Esquire magazine introduced to several amateur webcam sex couples, who for reasons you'll soon discover, decided to start having sex in front of thousands of people, all without leaving the comfort of their home....sounds kinky—the best part? They make A LOT of money doing it.
"Rebecca and Andy are an American couple who write an anonymous sex blog. Last year after months of browsing shows together they decided to take the plunge and start having sex on their webcam. 'I can't remember which one of us suggested it, but there was enthusiasm from both of us,' Rebecca says. 'It definitely started as a sexual adventure - initially, we just wanted to have fun on camera while strangers watched us."
Another couple divulges their story—"Megan and Mason, a couple from Canada, tell me how for them camming is both a lucrative project and a way to express themselves sexually. 'On average we make $200 per hour and we typically broadcast 4-6 hours a day,' Megan says. 'Camming has brought out the best in our relationship,' she continues. 'Being exhibitionists ourselves, performing for others is exciting and when the camera is off we're still intimate with each other.'
These sessions take place on website called, Chaturbate which Esquire detailed as—"The site works like this: viewers choose a 'room' they wish to enter where they can watch anonymously for free, or pay to see something more explicit. Virtual tokens, which have been bought in advance, are used to 'tip' broadcasters so that they perform certain acts, either for the benefit of everyone or (for more tokens) during a private show. Games are played to sustain interest, such as offering surprises for random tip amounts -"20 tokens! Here's a pussy flash!" - or more elaborate set-ups involving naked Twister and spinning Wheels of Fortune."
