Kink

Kink refers to a wide range of sexual practices engaged in by an even wider range of people, generally thought of as outside normal.

Some other important terms:

BDSM: Bondage and Discipline (B&D), Dominance and Submission (D&S), and Sadism and Masochism (S&M) - A varied set of consensual sexual activities that often involves some aspect of power play.

Sex Positive:  an ideology which promotes and embraces an open sexuality. Sex positivity is "an attitude towards human sexuality that regards all consensual sexual activities as fundamentally healthy and pleasurable, and encourages sexual pleasure and experimentation."

 

Kinky people often have significant difficulty finding a therapist with whom they can talk about their sex life. While this is essential for couples and relationship counseling, it is also important for individuals. Our sex lives are an important part of who we are and something that often comes up in the course of therapy. We believe it important that you are able to discuss whatever you need to talk about. We also believe that kinky behavior in the bedroom is perfectly normal and not a basis for pathology.
