Some examples of kink

So what are we talking about when it comes to kink? Here are some basic examples for you.

BDSM. The acronym BDSM that means bondage, disciple, sadism, and masochism. There are many activities that fall under these labels. It all depends on your particular interests.

Role Play. Role Play is a pretty common kink, and involves partners taking on “characters” or a fantasy scenario. For inspiration, people often look at books, TV shows, and even their own fantasies.

Foot Fetish. This one’s pretty well known. It’s basically what it sounds like, an intense sexual interest in feet.

Voyeurism. If you get turned on by watching other people have sex, voyeurism is your kink. But be sure you engage in a consensual situation.

Exhibitionism. This is all about getting turned on by being watched. This could be your kink if you’ve ever fantasized about having sex, masturbating, or getting naked in front of others.
