I have taken many courses and seminars about information on the internet since my job is working with information and figuring out which is good or not. I have always be told that 60% of information on the internet is either mistaken in some or all aspects or downright lies. I think on forums that deal with sex, that percentage is much higher. I have had an unusual marriage and sex life that reads like a porn story and I have to leave a lot of stuff out to perhaps get some to believe it because even I do not believe it.
Having experience in a lot of areas like relationships and marriages of all kinds, as well as a very liberal sex life, I can usually figure out who is posting to just elicit as many responses as they can and who is not. I basically treat the forums as entertainment. I would not think of asking strangers for advice. They do not know me so how can they help me based on a few paragraphs I write. Plus they are only getting my side of the story. They may all side with me not knowing that I beat my wife or some such thing.
I try to use my personal experience as an example but some will never believe me, but that does not detract from my experiences. I am old enough to not care who knows what I do, or did. Until last year I never told anyone about my unusual marriage or sex life unless they had a need to know. My wife has told no one that she is bisexual. Her parents went to their graves not knowing. My parents do not know that the girl they knew as our good friend, was also our lover for most of our marriage. When you are married people assume you are like them and for women it is easy to have a girlfriend since the word "girlfriend" can have two meanings.
There are posts that I read and having experienced myself, that do not ring true. Here is what blew my mind last year. A guy posted that his wife forced him to wear a maid's uniform and serve all of their neighbors, friends and family dinner, wearing the maid's uniform and a chastity device. After dinner he said that he was ordered into the bathtub where everyone urinated on him, even his parents. I was sure that there would be many posts claiming shenanigans, but instead all of the posts were expressing congratulations or jealousy that he lucked out when they could not. That gives you some idea of what forums are like. I think sometimes sex forums are mostly guys living their sex life online and then feeding off of each other's fantasies. There are also trolls who need attention so they post outrageous things and sure enough they get a lot of responses. I post outrageous things too but do not expect people to believe me if they choose not to. I know what I did so who cares?
