Coming from a "sheltered" background how comfortable are you using Eden Fantasy's knowing that your family and friends might be aware?

Mylo Mylo
I wouldn't say that I am sheltered, but I have a very religious background. Although my religion does not shun sex it does consider it a very private and sacred experience. I feel very comfortable using the site, however I am not comfortable using my social networking sites with it due to the fact that I am afraid I may offend family and friends. I think it would also be nice to have an incognito mode for when you are in public spaces. So please vote and explain your answer : )

I just make separate accounts for all my Eden Fantasys things. Different FB account, different e-mail, different Pinterest. You could also do a different Twitter account. Don't mix the accounts and you'll be sheltered as much as you can be.

My family and I are not on speaking terms so I don't usually give it much thought. My family as a whole is so very dysfunctional that I am actually the most socially acceptable of the lot!

I'm careful about what I put online and only one member of my family knows about EF.

I'm comfortable about it. I've told quite a few people about this site.

there are tons of members that have diff FB pages for ef. esp so they can get the fb friends deals and not worry about offending any family members. there is nothing wrong with using an online alias to protect your privacy

I am comfortable with being on here and some of my family and friends know. I have gotten some things for them from here as well. I have nothing to hide.

I keep Eden and my other social networking accounts separate. Only a few friends and my husband know I'm on Eden.

Just as Kenzie said, I made a Facebook account just so I could talk to other EF members & join in on the deals & giveaway entries, same with Pinterest.

I like my privacy & I also know that some family members, for whatever reason, would not be comfortable knowing about my activities on the site. I'm answering this as a person who is from a sheltered, religious background, which DOES make a difference & I believe is who you wanted to hear from?

I have no shame about sex, but it's not their business in the first place. That said, I have no problem with them knowing I use the site, but I know they'd be uncomfortable knowing the details, so it's easier to avoid any issues in the first place.

As for my siblings, I really believe their reaction would be, "Okay, good for you...uh, so why are you telling me this?" And really, who with a similar background, would tell their parents what specific acts get them off? If you wouldn't go into detail face to face with them, why would you want them reading such personal details on the site where they might come across your posts? (I'm NOT talking about those who have a more open relationship with their family.)

It may be easy for some to say they don't care, but I do care about how family feels & I wouldn't want them upset about something they have no control over or reason to even know about. It's not because I'm uncomfortable, it's that I don't want to make them uncomfortable.

My family isn't on my facebook but my friends and some customers are XD I choose to separate my Eden stuff from my other social sites.

I'm not from a sheltered background, well, my parent's didn't tell me much at all about sex (except how horrible it will probably hurt and how disgusting penises are), I learned most of what I know from the internet when I was a young teen XD I'm not shy about sex stuff now, but I don't flaunt it.

As cautious as I am about linking to family sites I'm more cautious with the business ones. A reason why I never save my password for automatic at in. Also I have multiple accounts.

This is the only social network I use. No one but me and my hubby know I visit this site.

Yeah, but I know at least 3 people who have been shut down on Facebook by having more than one personal page. It's against their rules, so I don't do it. Thus, I do not participate in any Eden stuff on Facebook. I don't give a damn what my "family" thinks (although my younger children are on facebook and my sex life isn't something they need to hear about) but my profession is a conservative one, so I keep things separate.

I like using the site, but I am completely private about it. Only my S.O. knows! I don't participate in any of the facebook/pintrest/twit ter contests to maintain privacy, which sucks, but that's my choice.

At first I didn't want anyone to know. Now, a relative and a couple of my fiance's know and some close friends. I still wouldn't want my grandmothers or my parents to find out though! Not something I would just tell any friend either. My mother found a vibrator in my bag I take when I stay with my fiance.....that was SO embarrassing. She actually made a joke to me about it! I'd prefer that she just acted like it never happened and never told me.

I really couldn't care less if they knew or not.

When in North America, I ask if I can have parcels delivered to my sisters house, she wants to know what is in them for customs sake if she is bringing the shipments to Canada. I ask her if she really wants to know. She knows what I get.

I think my other family members know, and frankly, I don't really care what they think about it.

I do care however; if my students know about it. Seeing as I have to have all my mail delivered to the school.

I end up accidentally "liking" products on my "public" facebook, then having to go on my "activity log" and delete them again!!

I have a separate FB for my "kinky" things

If my friends find out, oh well. If my family finds out, so what if they want to judge. It's my life.

I believe a "sheltered" background doesn't have anything to do with using or visiting Eden Fantasys!

I come from a conservative family, but I don't let that define me or control what I do. I do have separate FB accounts for Eden so I don't risk exposing my activity on here to them.

True, but when it happens, it is sure no fun.
