A praise kink is where you get sexual gratification from being called a "good slut” or “good girl
It could also be about how good you are at taking dick. Whatever it is, you get off on either giving the praise or receiving it.


This kink is defined by taking on different personas before and during sex. Roleplay may give you a confidence you wouldn’t usually have when portraying yourself and you may experience intensified pleasure from doing so. For example, maybe you and your partner play a teacher and a student, or a boss and an assistant. Are you usually more timid but really let go and come harder when you don't have to be yourself? Maybe roleplay is the kink for you!

 Orgasm control

This Kink consists of letting your partner control the timing of your orgasm. This is often achieved through the use of bondage. The dominant partner restrains the submissive partner and stimulates them to the brink of orgasm—only letting them come when/if the dominant partner wants to. You might be into this kink if you're interested in submitting your pleasure to someone else or if you love giving or getting a ruined orgasm.

 Dirty talk

Dirty talk is exactly what it sounds like: using suggestive or explicit language during sex in order to heighten sensation and excitement. This might be your kink if you're generally verbose and enjoy using words to feel powerful during sex. You'll know if this is your kink or not if you reach orgasm quicker when talking or being talked to.

 Bodily Fluids

In many of the fantasies involving body fluids, they were used in an act of dominance/submission, Male and female ejaculate were the most common, with a majority of men and women having fantasized about them before.  Golden showers or ‘Urophiliaare’ often joked about because who gets aroused by pee? It turns out a lot of people do! Water sports and golden showers are terms often used interchangeably. They both explain getting sexual arousal and gratification from either peeing on someone or being peed on. Whether that's on your body or mouth is totally up to you!


Cuckolding is about being turned on by your partner having sex with someone else, either in front of you or away from you and relaying details at a later date. A cuckold is aroused by the idea of sharing their partner.

 Age play

Age play is a form of role play in which one or both partners pretend to be (and get off on being) an age other than their own. Chances are you’ve already experienced what could be considered ultra-lite age play if you’ve ever called a partner “baby” in bed. Another common example is the “daddy dominant–baby girl” setup. If you’re calling someone “daddy” in bed, you’re engaging in light age play.

 Yoni Egg Kink

A yoni egg is an egg-shaped device worn inside the vagina typically as part of pelvic floor exercises. A yoni egg is inserted inside the vagina and the pelvic floor muscles tighten their grip to hold the egg in place. They can be quite beautiful—the sexual wellness company Chakrubs sells them in crystals such as rose quartz, jade, and black obsidian. There’s also a spiritual element involved for many yoni egg users, particularly since they involve crystals.
