If you’ve been online for at the very least an hour, there’s a strong chance that you’ve encountered some theme or aspect of the preposterously large array of kinks. People have had kinks for the better part of our whole history, and there’s no shame in having these subconscious (or if you’ve acknowledged them openly – very much conscious) causers of naughty thoughts.
Now where does the idea of a kink come from?
Wikipedia, always a safe source of knowledge, supposes that in human sexuality, kinkiness is the use of non-conventional sexual practices, concepts or fantasies. The term derives from the idea of a “bend” (cf. a “kink”) in one’s sexual behavior, to contrast such behavior with “straight” or “vanilla” sexual mores and proclivities.
Generally, kinks, as the above definition rightly suggests, are acts of the sexual kind that go against certain customs or rules.
You may ask yourselves what the first reported mentions of kinks were.
Though it does feel that kinks are modern inventions, they have actually been around for quite a while. The first written usage or mention of kinks – though not this specific word – was actually not in “50 Shades of Grey” obviously, but in the “Kama Sutra”, which you can find on our website, of the 4th Century. Other notable writings with especially sexual deviant acts or concepts are in de Sade’s “The 120 Days of Sodom”, but it borders on the absurdly gross and repulsive, and Pushkin’s “Secret Journal”, where there are recounted tales of anonymous sex, masked sex, group sex, anal play, and many more. Interesting to add is that the word sadism was inspired from de Sade, himself.
Kinks during the 20th century were attacked for being of an immoral nature, a pathological one, anti-feminist and as a “largely gay thing”.
Still, kinks have grown and developed through years, largely thanks to the Internet, and have come to be the damnable satisfactions we all love and adore.
That said, there still are a lot of odd or weird kinks.
What are some weird kinks?
- Electrostimulation is harnessing the power of electricity for kinky, sexy fun.
- Limits are pretty self-explanatory. If you’re new to BDSM, you and your partner(s) should have limits. These limits can be soft or hard. A soft limit is something light, name calling – for instance. A hard limit, on the other hand, is something like Electrostimulation. Baby steps, ladies and gentlemen, baby steps.
- Objectum sexuality refers to a sexual relationship (or attraction to) an inanimate object.
- A specific fetish for hands is referred to as Quirofilia, which can oftentimes manifest as an attraction to fingers, an attractive manicure, or plainly a pair of sexy hands.
- Spectrophilia report a sexual attraction, relationships, or sexual encounters with ghosts who come and have hot sex with them at night.
- A yoni egg is an egg-shaped device worn inside of the vagina typically as part of pelvic floor exercises.
Just because they are somewhat odd for the general population – but they aren’t for the common pervert –, it doesn’t mean that they are to be demeaned. Treat each other excellently.
