I’ve been asked about TeamViewer a lot over the past year, mostly by “drive-by” subs looking for an immediate session to get off. There are so many things in that scenario that just don’t work for me, but I’m ignoring all that and today will only tackle my personal usage of TeamViewer.
I found a message from last year that I sent in response to someone who held the belief that online financial domination wasn’t possible without TeamViewer. He seemed appalled that I wasn’t using it. Part of my response:
Teamviewer wasn’t a thing when I first embarked on this side of life and I’ve been gone from the online community for a while. So coming back, it is like playing catch-up with what’s trending in the world of kink. I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit lately, because there have been “come rape me on Teamviewer” offers like crazy. Something was holding me back and I was thinking that maybe I was just being an old-fashioned curmudgeon (because I am sometimes), but that’s not really it.
I don’t like the forced feeling of it.
I’m not interested in forcing someone to give me anything. I want a man to voluntarily give up some of his money because it makes him satisfied knowing that he’s providing for me or happy that I’ll get to have a little fun. I want him to push that button to send money, him to stand in line at the bank to withdraw cash, him to address an envelope with a gift enclosed or (in my wildest fantasies) him to take on a second job, turning over the paycheck. I want him to think about me every moment that he’s engaged in those activities, knowing how much I cherish his actions and dedication.
For me, TeamViewer just isn’t compatible with my style. There are also legal concerns involved in using someone’s computer, accounts, or credit card of which an unscrupulous sub can take advantage. I thought for some time about at least trying TeamViewer just to form a solid (and educated) opinion one way or the other, but reading a few of the horror stories from Dommes (men turning the tables, filing legal charges, disputing purchases, etc) made me change my mind.
Do I use TeamViewer? No.
Would I ever? Maybe, possibly, for the right reasons, in the right scenario, and with the right person. And that’s still a big maybe. (Please don’t contact me to tell me that you are the “right one”. That’s my call, not yours.)
So for those of you out there using TeamViewer successfully, more power to you! If it works for you, that’s awesome. Just don’t turn your nose up at me, because I don’t. I do things the way I like them and isn’t that kind of the point? 😉
