YAS!

Sometimes, when you're a person with a kink, it can feel really lonely. 

Sure, it's great discovering your kinky side and learning about a whole new world of sexual pleasure.

But very often, kinky people are taught that the things that arouse them are "dirty" or "bad".

This couldn't be further from the truth.

Whatever your sexual kink or fetish, as long as you practice consent and hurt no one else against their will, what you do to get off is just fine. 

Besides, what you think of as your weird kink might actually be WAY more common than you might think! 

A study conducted by a team in Canada found that some of the most "kinky" behavior is FAR from as freaky as we might think it is.

Yeah, it's actually pretty normal.

So just how common is kink?

Take it away, science!

This study out Quebec asked men and women to share what they fantasized about sexually. Perhaps not so surprisingly, their responses were FAR from vanilla. 

Check out what they had to say about the most common kinky sexual fantasies

  • Having sex in an unusual place: 82% women and 74% men
     
  • Having sex with two women: 37%  women and  84.5% men
     
  • Watching two women have sex: 42% women and 82% men
     
  • Having sex with a stranger: 49% women and 72.5% men

  • Being dominated: 65% women and 53% men
     
  • Dominating someone: 47% women and 60% men
     
  • Being tied up during sex: 52% women and 46% men

  • Having anal sex: 32.5% women and 64% men
     
  • Having sex with more than three women: 25% women and 75% men
     
  • Watching someone undress without them knowing: 32% women and 63% men

  • Having sex with more than three people, including men and women: 56.5% women and 16% men
     
  • Being ejaculated on: 41% women and 29% men
     
  • Spanking or whipping someone "to obtain sexual pleasure": 24% women and 43.5% men
     
  • Having sex with a non-sexual object: 26 percent women and 28 percent men


I love the idea that more women want to have sex with a cucumber than to be spanked. The more you know, am I right?

If this list didn't give you enough permission to let your freak flag fly, I don't know what will!
