Alright, readers, it’s time to work out our kinks. And no, I’m not referring to that acute pain you’ve been experiencing in your neck or shoulders. I’m referring to the little extra “something(s)” that gets you extra excited in bed. Yes, we’re referring to our sexual kinks here.
Whether you already fall into the category as a sexually kinky individual or just curious and exploring what’s out there, breaking from traditional play in the sheets is something more people than you’d think do.
This article isn’t here to shame anyone. We’re here to share with you 10 common sexual kinks and fetishes you might not have heard of till now.
What the Word?
Firstly, we need to make sure we fully understand what the difference is between a sexual kink and a fetish. Most people will use these terms interchangeably, not knowing that they represent different things.
A sexual kink, or kinky, refers to a sexual preference or behavior that is not considered the norm’. Of course, what is deemed kinky sex or not depends largely on the culture one is brought up in. The degree to what is kinky can and does change drastically from one person to another—from one country to another (apparently America is the kinkiest country of them all).
A fetish, on the other hand, is sexual arousal from an object or body part that isn’t usually associated with sex. If balloons or toes turn you on, welcome to the fetish club.
Now, a fetish can be kinky, but kinky doesn’t always mean there’s a fetish involved. See the differences? How ’bout that list of kinks now.
The most common kinky play and easy an icebreaker into the world of kinks and fetishes. Those who enjoy voyeurism get all heated up when spying or watching others who are naked or having sex.
This could mean watching your partner with some other person or watching another couple go at it. Just make sure everyone is aware of what’s going on. No spying on your neighbors without consent!
If you are aroused by the idea of being a fluffy bear, or an anthropomorphic animated character, then you got a case of autoplushophilia. We’ll just call you ”furries” for short.
Not for the faint of heart as pain is the game in this sexual kink. These types enjoy humiliation and suffering to reach their sexual climax. Choking, cutting, and burning is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to masochists play.
Not shy in crowds?—Try group sex. Ok, we guess there’s a little more involved than not being shy when it comes to group sex. However, if the thought of being with more than one person at a time arouses you, dip your dry toes in the water, and watch some porn the next time you and your partner are in the mood.
As we said, we aren’t here to judge. While this might gross some people out, enjoying or fantasizing about being peed on during sex isn’t as uncommon as you’d think. In fact, it’s ranked as the 9th most popular sexual fetish among Britains—those naughty Brits.

Borderline masochism, impact play tends to be more bark than bite. Spanking, whipping, and flogging are ways to get things going in this sexual kink. How far you take the pain level depends on how badly your partner wants it.
We threw this one in the mix, because hey, why not? You probably had no idea it was a thing, but nasolingus is the pleasure of sucking nostrils while having sex.
Not that we’re trying to gross you out, but some people even enjoy the eating or sucking of mucus from the nose—more power to you.
What do you get when you add the greek word for bird’s wing, pteron, to the greek word for love?—pteronphilia baby. Pteeronphiles are individuals that are sexually aroused by being tickled by feathers.
Pteronphiles are especially aroused when sensitive body parts are tickled with feathers. At times, pteronphiles can even reach orgasm through this feather play—wow, kudos.
Latex underwear, full-body suits, and hoods, oh my! Apparently, wearing latex heightens physical sensitivity and intensifies touch.
Rubber suiters report having sex in latex as being euphoric. No doubt, being completely wrapped up in a latex suit can have a constricting effect and raise the body temperature to sauna-like heat. We can imagine this turns things up real quick.
Foreplay is the linchpin of the rubber lifestyle. Bondage, whipping, and subduing seem to go hand n’ hand with these guys.
Somewhat like group sex meets voyeurism—cuckolding is a sexual kink where individuals are aroused by watching their partner have sex with someone else.
Maybe the taboo of having sex with others besides a partner or the jealousy of watching your partner be fucked by someone else is the desire here. The psychology behind those who enjoy cuckolding vary.
Human sexual desire is a funny and diverse thing. There are literally hundreds of types of sexual kinks and fetishes out there.
What was once considered outlandish and obscene sexual behavior is now becoming more accepted and commonplace. Don’t be afraid to explore new sexual heights through kinky sex—you might really like it.
