  • Boot Camp for Foot Fetishes? Seminar for Golden Showers?

    If you stay together with someone long enough in a loving relationship with sex involved, I figure you will eventually run up against one of those “surprise moments.”

  • The Passion of the Newness

    There is an amazing thrill to doing that “new thing.” I remember the first time I stepped on stage, the first time I kissed a boy, the first time I kissed a girl, the first time I kissed someone’s boots, the first time I was spanked to tears…

  • How They Touch Me

    I remember holding my boyfriend’s hand in high school. There were ways our fingers fit, over and under, woven together, that felt right, and other ways that just felt…weird.

  • Setting the Mood for Your Kinky Groove

    Few of us are able to live an openly kinky lifestyle around the clock and under all circumstances. The pressures of what many call “vanilla” life, but what I prefer to refer to as the “Default World”, are overwhelming at times.

  • Six Steps to Freedom

    Getting over a master is never easy. One must first decide they’re ready to move on, and then set their mind and mood for catharsis and deprogramming. Yes, we said deprogramming. Read on to understand why.

  • A dominant serves? Isn’t that ... counter-intuitive?

    Among the more persistent illusions non-kink identified people have about the pervert milieu is that we kinksters live in some sort of rarified place where protocols reign supreme, and those who would call themselves masters lounge about being waited on by doting droves of swooning slaves.

  • Age Ain’t Nothin’ but a Number – Or is it a state of mind?

    Age play is a sexual or non-sexual role-play activity in which those role-playing get into the mindset of a younger or older person. Role-playing as a younger person seems more common, however.

  • The Road to Domination

    My journey was not the most common, but I believe it made me the best I can be. It was an odd progression of finding my own way early on, dotted with self-education, and topped off with a healthy dose of rigid, formal education.

  • Why I Love to Hate Negotiations

    I hate negotiation for scenes. Seriously. Way to just suck all of the magic and romance and mystery and spontaneity out of what is supposed to be a sexual act. Yeah, yeah. I know it’s all supposed to be consensual and shit. But this is ridiculous. “May I?’ “Is this OK?” “Do you mind if we…” I mean, fuck.

  • Tell Me You Want Me

    What’s so sexy about submission anyway? Why do people do it? How can someone enjoy pleasing someone else all the time without getting their needs met in return? Mollena has the answer.

  • “Dominant savant”…?

    The rituals and emotional trips and triggers of BDSM have deep resonance for some, and not for others. And it is all good, so long as, when you come together to play, you are all reading the same fucking playbook.

  • 104 Wounds

    The sting of the needle is exquisite agony. The sting of 104 wounds may be too much agony to bear.

  • The Suspension Accident: It Finally Happened...

    Kinksters talk quite a bit about the inherent risk of bondage and other kinky play. They learn the proper procedure, to mitigate that risk — but rarely do you hear about the stark reality that no matter what precautions you take or how safe you play, people can still get hurt.

  • Got Rope?

    People are often curious as to why a particular play-style, pervy activity or kind of kink appeals while others leave you cold. I can’t speak for anyone but myself, but I’ll tell you about why I so love bottoming to rope bondage.

  • Mr. Sexsmith Says: Don’t Worry, Be Kinky

    Stepping out into the world of dating at the age of 18 is scary enough without adding the worry that your kinks will make people think you're a freak. Mr. Sexsmith offers some sage advice on coming to terms with who you are and building up the courage to step off the dating curb.

    Mollena shares a deeply personal conversation with her mother about just exactly why she lets people hurt her.

  • Truth Is Better Than Fiction

    The temptation to make something up when confronted with questions about your kink can be strong, but most often, the truth in some form is better than trying to get away with the little white lie.

  • Seven (Random) Suggestions for Submissive & Slave Types!

    There is no one rulebook for how to do this thing we call BDSM, Power-Exchange, Master/Slave relationships, etc., etc. One of the things I most enjoy about perverts is our limitless capacity to forge our own damn path, thank you very much! I’ve done a lot of weed-whacking through the jungles of kink in order to find ways that work for me.

  • Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree... Oh! Christmas Tree!

    Winter Solstice, meet your kink. A dendrophiliac is a person who is attracted to trees, who has romantic, sensual, sexual encounters with the forest. So, in this (most wonderful) time of year, when the evergreen tree becomes a decorated centerpiece of the Holiday Season, why not draw our attention to those who have a very personal relationship to trees?

    What’s with all the alien or monster tentacles in Japanese porn and anime?

  • Seven (random) Suggestions for Dominant Types

    There is no one rulebook for how to do this thing we call BDSM, Power-Exchange, Master/Slave relationships, etc., etc. One of the things I most enjoy about perverts is our limitless capacity to forge our own damn path, thank you very much! I’ve done a lot of weed-whacking through the jungles of kink in order to find ways that work for me.

  • Deputy Interrupts Bondage in the Woods

    We doubt if being all over the Internet was part of this particular fantasy.

  • The Prime Directive — It's Not Just For Starfleet

    When you look at “Power Exchange” relationships – that is, relationships that are based on someone giving over control of some facet (or all aspects!) of their lives to another person – it seems obvious whose needs, wants and desires come first. The master over the slave, the dominant over the submissive, top over the bottom.

    Or is it?

  • What Every Submissive Needs To Know Before They Play

    When you find it, the desire to jump into the deep end of the BDSM pool can be irresistible. The excitement of new found friends, playmates and activities can drive a submissive off track and into dangerous situations for mind, body and soul.

    In the first installment of this interview, we met up with Molly Ren, who has a very special relationship with food as it relates to sex.

  • Valley of the Real Dolls

    Things that look human but aren’t, are creepy. Or loveable, depending on your capacity for anthromorphism. Or beautiful, depending on your aesthetic.

  • Animal Attractions: A Trip to a Human Petting Zoo

    All the pick-up guides I read (and I read a lot) focus on small talk. What to say, how to say it, how much to say, how little to reveal. But sometimes it’s easier to say nothing at all. Sometimes the best way to meet people is to leave language aside and just bark, mew, whimper, or pant. *Sniff, sniff*

  • Thug Life: Punching, Kicking, and Takedowns as a Way to Do S/M

    Fight Club. Rugby. MMA. Let’s face it—we live in a society where it’s okay to be physically combative in a competition for superiority. But what happens when the fighting takes on an overtly kinky overtone? You’ve got what some refer to as Rough Body Play, or “Thug Play”—an old fashioned beatdown, not to the death, but until someone gets tired or cries “uncle.”

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Objectification

    If you've ever filled out a BDSM checklist, chances are you've seen a question about whether you enjoy “serving as furniture.” Or you might have run across someone who gets hot when referred to as “it.” What's the allure of objectification? Let's take an objective (sorry) look at this very stationary fetish.

  • Chained to the Monitor: My Time as an Online Slave

    I ended up the collared pet of a woman I never met, never talked to on the phone, saw on webcam only a handful of times, but communicated with almost daily. It's not easy turning your life over to another person, and maybe not all that healthy. But its allure was as strong as any drug and I just couldn't resist.

  • Shine, and the Other S&M

    Some of us have a fetish—a very particular fetish, that is—a fetish for latex and PVC, which is often associated with the realms of BDSM or S&M. But this particular fetish isn’t about BDSM. It’s just for ‘the look.’ Or, as renowned designer The Baroness puts it, “the other S&M: Stand and Model.”

    Is there happiness in slavery? When a collar isn't just jewelry but means something, what does it mean? Let's talk fact and fiction when it comes to living under contract.

  • The Fine Art of Figging

    When I heard about figging, I was fairly certain that I’d enjoy it. Figging is inserting a plug of fresh ginger root into your ass to enhance sexual pleasure. The ginger’s juices soak into your anal tissues, resulting in a burning sensation that is both arousing and excruciating. This practice took root in Victorian times—and you know those prim folks engaged in some very kinky pastimes.

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Medical Play

    White coats, stethoscopes, and nurses standing by? Ooh la la! A surprising number of folks get faint at the thought of a little medical porn, or medical equipment—and those are two very different kinks. The doctor will see you now, with five examinations of this very popular kink.

  • Your Kiss, Your Fist

  • The Ecstasy of the Agony: The Intersection of Kink and Spirituality

    BDSM is rarely considered from anything other than its purest physical aspect; even rarer still is it presented as something other than a pagan or non-mainstream religious set of beliefs. But what happens when someone who has deep faith and belief in more traditional, conservative religion finds that their sexual interests don’t exactly fit in with that lifestyle?

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Knife Play

    Knives and sex with no felonies involved? It's possible. It can even be part of a fun Friday night. How do you mix sharp blades with tender bits? Here are five points (I'm sorry) for living on the edge (I'm so, so sorry) with erotic knife play.

  • Confessions of a Closet Kink

    Hello. My name is Newme…and I’m a closet kink. If you saw me walking down the street, you would probably think, preppy mom. I’m top to bottom J. Crew—cardigan, tee and jeans. Mother of four who home-schooled her kids, drove them to all their activities in a Honda Accord, worked hard for a living, helped my husband start his own business. Nothing special, just your typical person on the streets.

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Predicament Bondage

    Bondage is often devious, but no bondage is quite as sly as predicament bondage. Every minute is a mind game and every movement an act of will. Here are five whys and hows of this nasty little game.

  • Going for the Gold

    Or, if you prefer, urolagnia. Okay, maybe you aren’t familiar with the word, but I’ll bet you’ve heard of the fetish more commonly known as “water sports” or “golden showers.” Since researching this practice, I’ve found urolagnia dripping into my own sexual fantasies.

  • The 7 Year Itch: A Look Back at Secretary

    “The sweetest romantic comedy about S&M since, well...ever,” says Blackbook of the then-quirky, now-seminal film Secretary. Was it a massive step toward the mainstreaming of kinky culture or a lopsided portrayal that did more harm than good? Seven years later, people’s opinions remain sharply divided.

  • The Secret Pursuit of a Secret

    To paraphrase Andrew Vachss: A man who has a fetish will seek out women who he wouldn't normally find attractive if those women agree to and provide that particular fetish. In fact, that man might even prefer these women to those more attractive to him-more his “type”—if the ‘less’-attractive women provide him with his fetish more than women he's normally attracted to.

  • The Biochemistry of BDSM

    Jack and Bob meet at a kinky party; they go off into a corner where Jack gets whipped for an hour by Bob, wielding a big leather flogger. Yet, somehow, Jack is smiling at the end of it—and the noises he is making sound less like a man being tortured, and more like a man having sex. But why is he enjoying it? What is it about kinky pain that makes it different from regular pain?

  • Two Scoops: What Flavor is Your Vanilla?

    Vanilla. To the epicurious, it’s one of the world’s most prized spices. In the bedroom, however...well, nobody seems to know what it is. Except that they either are or aren’t vanilla. The Beautiful Kind takes a look at vanilla...and in the process, bakes a very special cake...

  • Lust for Blood

    I’m not just a sex writer. I’m a horror movie enthusiast. Which I suppose makes me an exceptionally bad girl. So figure if this story were a slasher flick, I’d be dead about 750 words in.

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Corsets

    Corsetry isn't just for Victoriana enthusiasts. The dramatic lines of a corseted figure is custom-made for the high-fashion fetishwear subset of BDSM culture, and the restrictive nature of the garment allows for all kinds of power-trippy fun. How did getting laced up into something restrictive and sexy get mixed up with kink? Read on for five lace-'em-ups about this deceptively beautiful fetish.

  • Leaving Normal—The Whys and Wherefores of the Journey to Kink

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Latex

    Have you ever found yourself confronted with a piece of latex fetishwear and wondered what that familiar tingle was all about?

Read on for five fabulous finds on why lovers love latex.

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: OTK Spanking

    If you're looking for a way to try out kink that's free, easy, and likely to have good results, this one’s for you. Spanking as sexual titillation goes a lot further than the trope of the 1950s secretary getting a slap on the rump from a leering boss; in the world of kink today, spanking is safe, fun, and a lot less complicated than sex. Let's check out five rump-thumping tidbits about the spank.

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Animal Roleplaying

  • The Kink Corner with Kal Cobalt: Tickling

    For some of us, tickling is an activity we remember from summer camps and evenings with the family, either fondly or agonizingly (or both).

  • Robot Sex

    For as long as robots have been a concept in the human imagination, we have been plagued by questions: Is advanced artificial intelligence possible? Can machines devoid of emotion truly understand the human condition? awesome would robots be in bed?
