We investigate the semantic foundations of session types, by revisiting them in the abstract setting of labelled transition systems. The crucial insight is a simulation relation which generalises the usual syntax-directed notions of typing and subtyping, and encompasses both synchronous and asynchronous binary session types. This allows us to extend the session types theory to some common programming patterns which are not typically considered in the session types literature.
