My relationship with my wife was pretty uneventful before we discovered webcamming. We had fallen into the routine (rut) most couples never anticipate before getting married. Work, tend to kids, Sunday night “missionary sex”, pay bills, repeat.

It didn’t just awaken the sexual beast in my wife and I, it made me a better person, husband, neighbour, friend and entrepreneur.
