We're open to our friends, but not so much family. My mom knows we're somewhat kinky, but not to the extent that we are. I think she'd be freaked out. She's run across our restraints. We try to shield her from our overall lifestyle. We don't wave our relationship in friends' faces either, but they know far more than my mom does.

Not really, although I make jokes about riding crops and slave collars. One of my friends (best friend from high school, no less) is the only one who knows about the extent of my relationship with former-Master, and she said, "You were always kinky. That's why it surprised us when you married Mr. No-Libido."

My friends and siblings, yes. Most of them are too, so it's a common interest. My Mother knows to a certain extent but doesn't want or need to hear any details.

I'm not super open about it, but I don't try to hide it or anything. I think I'm going to get a permanent collar pretty soon though, so it'll probably be a little more obvious.

My family has no idea and only a handful of friends know.

Regardless of my kinky side I do not really talk sex with my family

No one knows about what we do in our bedroom.

My friends do. They are as well. I'd feel weird not being able to openly talk to friends about everything. Family, well, they don't really need to know that stuff.

Friends, if they're people who are comfortable with that. My sibling and I can sometimes talk about complex identity stuff without getting into relationship specifics.

I have a flogger and a crop hanging on my bedroom wall. I don't really feel like taking them down when my mom comes to visit, though I doubt she'll call attention to them. I guess I'll see.

None of my friends or family know about it. I have enough issues with my social life, and I don't need them hating me for my interests that don't concern them in the slightest.

My friends know that I'm open to talking about things, but I generally don't kiss and tell. Close friends, I will answer questions, or offer guidance on things involving THEM, but not really myself. If that makes any sense

Not so much family, but my friends definitely know. They're pretty much a kinky group, too, so it's all good

Most people I'm close to have at least a vague idea I'm not vanilla. My pet and I keep intimate details to ourselves, however.

My friends know a lot about me, even what I have, but one actually knows what contests i enter and such. my mother knows about the lingerie, just not the toys. my sister knows everything, she found my toys, im like: GET OUT HERE.

My close friends know I'm kinky, and I'm sure my mom knows. I would wear cuffs, chains, collars, etc as accessories way back in the day.

Most of my friends don't know the extent of how kinky I really am, though.
