    I'm a little confused on the difference between the two when it comes to relationship problems. I always thought that relationship problems were supposed to be posted in the vaginarium because it says so under the "vaginarium" heading.... but it also makes sense for relationship problems to be in this forum if you're looking for emotional support. Where would I post my questions to get the best answers? Any thoughts?

    ive noticed that the vaginaarium is really more for, like "sex related" problems where as the asylum is more of a "my girlfriends parents want to tear my eyes out" problem

    Eh?
    It's called the Asylum with good reason... it's a place to let out those thoughts you have that you think are crazy, or that you think will cause other people to think you're crazy, or that no one else will listen to. It's also a place to seek asylum - protection, safety, shelter, sanctuary - without fear of retribution. This is the place to go when you're at the end of your emotional rope.

    The Vaginarium is a little lighter. Its focus is more sex-related, but can also include relationship problems as well since the two are invariably linked. There will always be a degree of crossover between the two forums, but one rule of thumb is that if it's something you would consult a counsellor/psychologist/psychiatrist about, it probably belongs in the Asylum.

    The vag is if you want more light-hearted, less serious replies, and as others have said, if it's sex related then it goes in the vag. If you want to know where to take your girl on a date, why you can't get her off, why she isn't into you, etc., take it there.

    The asylum is for deeper emotional problems. Long term relationship breakups or soon-to-be-over relationships are the main relationship issues here.

    Well said. :bowdown:
    There are also some really caring people in here, who offer good, solid advice. It's a place to turn to when nobody else on the planet will listen, when hurt has gone way beyond pain, and life seems at the time rather meaningless. I have met some really wonderful people in here, people who have become friends, who I trust, and who have made me smile when smiles were scarce. I have nothing but good things to say about the Asylum, the people who frequent here and the mods I have been in contact with. The Asylum has helped me through one of my darkest times and I shall always be grateful.
