Top 5 Kinks

2 09 2018

I ran across this article in Vice today on the top 5 kinks in the US. It was an interesting read, even if I don’t agree with it’s conclusions. The 5 are:

  1. Group Sex
  2. BDSM
  3. Novelty and Adventure
  4. Taboo Sex
  5. Partner Sharing and Non-Monogamy

So of these “Kinks”, I only count two as being truly kinky. Group Sex is just sex with multiple people at the same time. Nothing inherently kinky in this.

Novelty and Adventure is a very ambitious category. so broad as to make it worthless. Basically anything that isn’t missionary is how I would read that. This is a pretty useless category.

Partner Sharing and Non-Monogamy includes both swinging and polyamory. Only one of these would I categorize a kink (swinging), the other I would say is a relationship style, and not a kink.

BDSM, well that is the first one I would say really is a kink. But it is very broad as well. I would like to see more specific kinks, rather than general broad categories.

Taboo sex seems a little tame by their definition. It is definitely a kink, but they specifically call out exhibitionism, voyeurism, and “fetish-objects”, but the category encompasses many more activities.

Frankly I found the research useless, something with real kink activities would be more useful, and less offensive.
