Be sure you visit us this October so that you can celebrate National Kink Month in style! Grab your whips, handcuffs, and ropes to celebrate the occasion with erotic sex toys, and taboo sex acts. What is eroticism and kink and what are some of the more common kinks that we all enjoy? Let’s find out!
When people think of the term “kink” many think of extreme sexual fetishes like choke chains, black body suits and masks. But, you may already be acting on some of the most common sexual fetishes, and not even realize it. (Spanking or feather tickling, anyone?) Everyone has sexual fetishes and kinks, how common or rare depends on the person.
Although many view the terms “fetish” and “kink” as interchangeable, a kink means an activity that someone enjoys that exists outside of traditional norms or “traditional” sex such as bondage, using handcuffs, or sex toys. A fetish encompasses broad themes, such as restraint, domination, submission, roleplaying, or pure sensual romanticism. Of course, these definitions are always changing.
1. Impact Play
More than likely, you and your partners regularly engage in impact play: spanking, paddling, and other forms of consensual striking or hitting. Impact play simply extends the energetic movement sex naturally provides.
2. Role Playing
We’ve all had our favorite fantasy that we wish would play out in real-life. Who hasn’t thought about banging the hot math teacher, your realtor, handyman, or your favorite nurse? The best part about role-playing is that you can have your sexual partner dress up for you and indulge your fantasy in your own home.
3. Foot Fetish
Having a foot fetish surrounds the desire to massage, kiss, tickle, and even smell the foot to arouse you and your partner. There are many sensitive areas of our feet, and that can definitely help with sexual arousal.
Who doesn’t love lingerie? A lingerie fetish is probably the most common fetish for many people, as it has been a timeless part of sex going back as far as the Victorian Era. Lingerie naturally highlights the female body’s best attributes, a presentation that should turn any man on. And if you’re a male who loves wearing lingerie, don’t feel ashamed, let your J. Edgar Hoover colors fly proud! Male lingerie is becoming more popular as gender roles have redefined themselves.
5. Group Sex
For some, one sex partner is not enough. If you require high energy, overly stimulated situations to get off, group sex is a great option. Share your partner with others, and let others share you.
Bondage has become very popular in recent years, right up there with wearing lingerie. Many couples love to be tied to the bed with handcuffs, a silk scarf, or his favorite tie. Don’t forget your safe word!
7. Dominance and Submission
When it comes to relationships, it’s all about power exchange. Without a doubt, this carries over to sex. Who is the dominant one? Who loves to be told what to do? Dominance and submission refer to the consensual erotic power exchange between partners.
8. Voyeurism and Exhibitionism
If our current sexual age could be defined in two words, Voyeurism and Exhibitionism immediately rise to the top! The internet has changed the sexual landscape forever. With sites like OnlyFans and live webcam chats and sex shows, people are happy to spread their legs for all to see. Or, if you enjoy attending sex parties, you get to enjoy watching sex while having sex, living out the best of both worlds.
9. Wax Play/Massage Candles
If you’re going for that sex-in-the-forgotten-castle motif, you should try having sex under candle light, with massage candles to drip wax on your hot lover. Massage candles can be used so the wax burns at a lower temperature, or if you enjoy the painful sensation, use regular candles.
Electrostimulation has been used for medical and rehabilitation purposes, but it also plays a role in the bedroom. Sexual electrostimulation is a common fetish, especially among those who love the dominance and submission sexual dynamic.
