Dare to Ask Summer: KINK

What’s that?

Literally “a sharp twist or curve in something that is otherwise straight”

Kink is an umbrella term that covers a wide range of experiencing and fulfilling one’s sexuality, but also ways of identifying. Kink can include, among others, BDSM and other forms of caring/relationships. Kink can be a practice, a lifestyle, or even an identity.

Kink is a group of practices intended to enhance intimacy by going past what is usually considered conventional.

Kink is not:

  • is not only BDSM.
  • not every person is interested in power-exchange play.
  • does not always result in intercourses.
  • the keyword is enhanced intimacy.


It is possibly the most well-known KINK-practice

BDSM is an acronym and stands for:

  • BD: bondage and discipline, exchange of control.
  • DS: dominance and submission, exchange of authority.
  • SM: sadism and masochism, exchange of sensation.
