Relationship blackmail derives from a situation of understanding. It is when one elevates the financial status of a companion—otherwise known as a Sugar Daddy relationship. The dangerous point is there is no wall of privacy; the man believes he created a world where he can unwind, explore, experience, and not be in fear of judgment. To a degree, it is true; however, many have exposed themselves by sharing personal data.
My first question to a client is, what does the other person know about them. Usually, the answer is nothing or minimal, which is always off base. Those involved in discreet relationships realize it is a limited run, and some prepare for a rainy day, which begins by never deleting text messages.
The extortion's genesis occurs when the money rug is pulled from beneath them. No one wants a fall from financial grace, so some plot for a big payday. Sometimes it comes as a soft suggestion, a fake medical claim, or an outright threat. If you adhere, you are allowing another person to hold you hostage. Paying brings them back to the well and does not sever the relationship.
Blackmail can escalate into stalking. I have worked on a case where a stalker moved to a hotel near the client's home. Then continuously walked in front of their home until they had the opportunity to strike up a conversation with the spouse. Another blackmailer kept making appointments at the client's place of work. Tactics are either emotional or strategic actions, knowing which is essential.
Paying a blackmailer furthers evidence of a relationship. One client did pay and thought it was safe to do so with cash. The blackmailer hired an investigator to video the exchange. The very second money is demanded, consider yourself in the hunt. Always be aware of your actions, like future emails and texts. Are they recording conversations?

Remember, combating blackmail is always about protecting your identity, preventing exposure, and ridding the blackmailer from your life.
Most blackmail happens by connecting with the wrong person on the internet, hence the terms online blackmail and sextortion. Although, not all of it occurs digitally. There is relationship blackmail, which is when a victim has met their blackmailer. Such cases are inviting an escort into a hotel room or home. Involving yourself in a Sugar Daddy relationship, where you pay a person over time. Let's not judge here, but men are not the only targets.
