I couldn't have a spanking blog challenge without some kink. I have to admit though "Kinky" used to dream up images of leather clad men whipping the hell out of naked women tied to a cross with a flogger.
So. Yes this is true. Flogging is a kink. Leather is a kink. Lots of things are kink and I've been kinky since I found out what it was back in 2000 ish.
Lots of other things fall under this kinky umbrella...omg! Did anyone else just picture an actual umbrella made of like leather with some chains dangling down? No? Just me? Moving on....things that are fetishes have been lumped together but honestly I have recently experienced fire play (wands are dipped in alcohol and run along the skin) and I can't understand why it falls there. Yes, you have to be mostly naked because well duh you don't want to catch your clothing on fire but it's like a really warm soothing massage.
Electro play I understand going to a different level because if applied to the right locations (back of the neck, nipples, and a few other ones that I can't recall) you will have a forced orgasm. It is the most amazing thing since ever by the way and I had thought it would be a hard limit to me. I'm sorry to tell you no one held me down and zapped my nipples - the amazing gentleman who topped me took almost twenty minutes to show me all his tools, explain what he was doing, and try it out on really low currents/volts first. He is very respected in the community I am in and I've found something else that floats my boat.
What else have a I done that isn't really kinky? Well, I hate to shout it but spanking is a lot more accepted then it used to be. It should be no surprise to you that I really enjoy this particular activity. I have been spanked into sub-space and it's the most amazing feeling I've ever had. I was used to discipline spankings but spanking just to kick up endorphins? Yes. Please. More.
My whole point is some things are called kinky without being sexual. What is sexual to one person - toes sucked, feathers, floggers, what have you - is not to another.
Stay kinky my friends or consider leaning towards it!
