I like the idea, there are quite a few members that like to display on their profile that they're in a D/s relationship, As is, they already mention it on their bio, but this would be a nice addition as well, in my opinion.



I agree.

Also for those who are married and may be going through a separation and don't feel comfortable saying they are single when they aren't, perhaps having an "its complicated" option would benefit some as well.

I could have sworn I saw that here at some point as a relationship status...if not, its a great idea too.

How would you know? Have you been through 160K profiles and checked? Is your membership on lush mostly a data mining exercise?

What are the URL's of the sites you're supposedly setting up / have set up? I'd love to check them out.


It took six member searches,

Code:

Search term                        No of pages returned

having an affair                   50
married                            383
in a relationship                  202
single                             834
slut                               159

sub-total                          1628

all                                8030

%age of user who state a marital status = 20.27%

I don't know about the whole ownership bit, but I'm willing to be rented/leased monthly to the right bidder. Auctioning off your status could become the next big Lush trend. clown

That's negotiable depending on the rental package you opt for.

They could include prominent name-dropping on my profile and forum signature. A picture of you surrounded by love-hearts added to my image gallery with declarations of your hotness posted in the comments section (updated and swooned over daily). Unlimited support for all forum posts and opinions eg. "I now agree with LM. During a mind-blowing round of filthy sex last night, he finally convinced me that gun control is wrong!" The upgraded package could include being featured as a character in an upcoming story or eBook and a Fedex package of limited edition panties of your desired level of soiling. I will also be your official cyber-date when LadyX and Bastard renew their vows. Really... there's so many possibilities... clown

Ok, I'll sign up for the Upgraded package. I expect the thrice cummed in panties here in my office by Friday! And for our cyber-date, a nice black cocktail dress will be perfect.. no panties that day.

I've been keeping an eye out on this thread, because I went to Gav with this idea and really want to see this added to Lush. I think it will open the door more for the BDSM side of Lush which would be nice. I know that if we add a few for some people and not others some will bicker. I guess that’s a good reason for this thread and poll.

I know there is a lot of ways BDSM titles are. There is Master, Mistress, Dom, Domme, Sir, Miss, sub, pet, and slave. There s a lot. I know how some people feel about the word “slave” and “sub” and “pet” but really in the end it boils down to being the same thing. To make it easier I think Gav should set it up as.

On a male profile
Master of ________

On a female profile
Mistress of _______

Then the sub part sub/pet just like that. There shouldn’t need to be two choices. Just make it on showing you can be either. We get the point.

Of course I know there are MANY people who are switches... I’m a switch; I know what it’s like. But this is a relationship status, not an Orientation preference. I mean things like, straight, gay, bi, Trans, etc. Though I do personally vote to have switch added to the list choice.

Gav works hard to make Lush running. Give him a break. ...... Thanks for making this thread!

Just for a laugh, how about adding the status "Celibate". I wonder how many would opt for that one. I think many would see it as a challenge to be had.

Celibacy isn't really a relationship status, it's more a chosen path.

Involuntary celibacy isn't. Whistle "Desperate" is easier to spell, though. evil4

Hi

Should we change Marital Status to Relationship Status and also include two more choices:

- Master
- Master to xxxxxx
- Owned
- Owned by xxxxxx

Thanks!



seriously?? sounds like a lot of work, when most people in those situations clearly write it in their bio who belongs to them or who they belong to.

We do, because we DON'T have a proper place to show it off.. Thus the reason for adding this feature. :)

Best thing is, it now becomes searchable. So I can get a list of all the "Pets" so I can *never you mind*

Im not sure how your bio is not considered a proper place. Its the first thing that people will read, should they chose to even do that, and when its in bold, well its hard not to miss it. Just sayin..

You might be right, but it would still be nice to have the choice. It seems a lot of the people who have posted in here agree. It's not just for those who look at our profiles, but I would personally love to have mine to read "Mistress to JamieW" as I'm sure so many others with their D/s relationships.
