  1. Some can be enjoyed platonically.
  2.  
  3.  
  4. There is no sexual aspect required for the kinks
  5.  
  6.  
  7. It depends on your understanding of what constitutes sex.
  8.  
  9. What else would it be?
  10.  
  11. Because a lot of kink turn people on
  12.  
  13.  
  14. That’s the only context I have for it.
  15.  
  16.  
  17. Most people who talks about that seems to imply that there is some "sexual tension" in that stuff, whatever that means…
  18.  
  19.  
  20. Its always seemed more based in power dynamics and roleplay,  i also read a p good paper a while back describing that
  21.  
  22. A kink doesn't have the same sexual undertone, thats considered sexual.
  23.  
  24.  
  25. It typically goes hand in hand w/ sex
  26. Kinks are sexually charged fetishes and interests.
  27.  
  28.  
  29. I have no idea
  30.  
  31. Isn't it something that turns you on?
  32. It’s usually used in a sexual sense
  33.  
  34.  
  35. If it has to do with sexual organs it’s sexual.
  36. Its connected to arousal not sexual in nature
  37. I heard it can also be purely sensual
  38. I don’t have any practical experience with kink, but from what I know, kink is definitely separate from sex. You don’t have to have sex during a scene. Hell, I don’t think you even need to be sexually attracted to the other person/people in a scene.
  39.  
  40. I think it's sensual
  41.  
  42. Don't fully understand the question
  43.  
  44.  
  45. Because you can practice non-sexual kink, like tying someone up without sexy times
  46.  
  47.  
  48. It is by definition
  49.  
  50. I don't understand kink well enough to say whether it is definitively sexual.
  51.  
  52.  
  53. Since asexuals can be kinky and still not enjoy/desire sex
  54.  
  55. It is literaly in the description of kink, that it is a different approach to sex.
  56. Kink, to me, is all about intimacy, trust, and it’s just fun! It’s not all about sex, and doesn’t even have to be foreplay like a lot of people think it does.
  57.  
  58. Kink directly ties to sexual activities. If a “kinky” activity is taken into a non-sexual setting then it is no longer sexual (ie: bondage being used without the intent of sex from any involved parties)
  59.  
  60. not everything people do in kink is explicitly sexual or done for sexual reasons
  61.  
  62.  
  63. Mainly just from the way it is talked about. I will admit I have no personal experience and have not looked into it myself.
  64. Some people have kinks that involve sex, (breeding) while others, (ddlg) can be nonsexual.
  65.  
  66. Kinks arouse me, not specific people
  67.  
  68. It can be sexual but doesn't need to be. E.g puppy play. It's a kink but not always sexual
  69.  
  70.  
  71. If it gets you hot and heavy it is inherently sexual. No matter what it is
  72. Personally, kinks don't involve sex/penetration/genitalia. For me it's more of the situation/mood/atmosphere that I prefer while trying to be intimate, etc.
  73. I have no experience with it so I don’t know
  74. cuz i've spent 3 years in the ace community and i've been told and had it shown to me time and again that it's not inherently sexual
  75. Because I haven't done any research.
  76.  
  77.  
  78.  
  79. If it is consensual, it can be sexually arousing, but if it isn't, it can be extremely anxiety endusing and traumatic
  80. Being naked doesn't have to be sexual. Sex is stimulating the genitals and you don't have to do that in kink.
  81. It's playful and sensual to me.
  82.  
  83.  
  84. I feel they are distinctly a part of sex, since I define them as an alternate way of having sex.
  85.  
  86.  
  87. It needs more thought and exploration, before I can come to a answer
  88. I feel like something can't be a kink unless it is somewhat inherently sexual. If someone thinks something is a kink, but there is nothing sexual about it, I think they really just see the thing they like as a hobby or something they like to do.
  89.  
  90.  
  91. Because there’s more than 1 type of kink
  92. It's sensual and typically for sexual release
  93.  
  94.  
  95.  
  96. Social ques
  97.  
  98. It is def associated, but kink can be something other than sexual, imo.
  99.  
  100. Because that's kink, something to enhance the sexual activity. On the other hand i feel like this survey thinks kinks and fetishes are the same. Fetishes are a much stronger form of kinks and a bit different.
  101.  
  102. "Ive been taught that all kinks are sexual
  103. "
  104.  
  105. Pet play to some isn't sexual.
  106. Kinks refer to turn ons
  107.  
  108. You don’t have to have sex or feel sexually attracted to be into kink
  109. I don't know enough about it to have an answer on that. I know lots of ace say it isn't necessarily sexual though.
  110. I've only ever seen it used in a sexual manner.
  111.  
  112. There are so many kinks to the point where some of them wouldn't be sexual
  113.  
  114. The kink for me is what turns me on
  115.  
  116.  
  117. Does not require sex or sexual desire
  118. I guess I see no reason to differentiate "kinks" from any other hobby or interest.
  119. I dont know
  120. Sometimes it’s just more about the aesthetic or the feelings of it
  121.  
  122. Idk, I thought that's what it was
  123.  
  124. Kink usually refers to getting sexual pleasure out of some unorthodox methods, and even if the methods themselves aren't sexual by nature, there's still sexual arousal from those methods.
  125. I suppose kink is like role play, it depends on the context. I mean you could dress up as a police officer because you or your partner find it sexy, or you know, you could be a police officer.
  126. Kink is for sexual culture and I have my own of course
  127. It's not inherently about another person, it's about the kink.  
  128.  
  129.  
  130. It always seems to come up in sexual contexts.
  131. Kink doesn't always have to be sexual.
  132.  
  133. I think it is sexual, but then again I've never tried it or experienced it (even though I want to). It's possible there are non-sexual kinks that I'm unaware of at the moment.
  134. Oftentimes kink is done naked, and is paired with sexual acts or relationships that involve sexual power dynamics. But I’m a domme with several subs I have no sexual relationship with. We just do impact, wax, etc with no sex.
  135.  
  136. It usually involves sex
  137.  
  138. Situational dependent
  139.  
  140.  
  141. It is by its definition.
  142.  
  143. Idk
  144.  
  145. The only reference I have for the term "kink" is sexual preferences outside the norm.
  146.  
  147. Because not every kink is sexual in nature.
  148.  
  149.  
  150. Kink can at times be sexual and at times not be
  151.  
  152. I think it really depends on the person, and some kinks might not have anything to do with being attracted to people
  153.  
  154.  
  155. It doesn't involve sexual attraction
  156.  
  157. Kink causes arousel.
  158.  
  159. usually inherently connected to sex
  160. Its more psycological than sexual, kinda hard to explain cause I don't have sexual urges but there are kinks that I'm like attracted to.
  161.  
  162. I think it really depends on what it is.
  163.  
  164.  
  165.  
  166. Not all kinks revolve around sexual acts or even less to sex. They are mostly focused on a persons likes and dislikes on an intimate level.
  167.  
  168.  
  169. Kink can be sexual, but isn't limited to being sexual.
  170.  
  171.  
  172. Not sure
  173. Many (most?) kinks have a sexual component / are things that turn people on sexually.
  174.  
  175. It can be sexual, but it's fun without being sexual too
  176. Im still exploring potential kinks
  177.  
  178.  
  179. It depends on the individual and the kink. BDSM seems to usually have a sexual element, while furries aren't always sexually engaged with their kink
  180. Isn’t the point sexual arousal?
  181.  
  182.  
  183. I think many kinks are sexual, but not all. I think you can enjoy kinks and sexual things without having sex.
  184. I've only heard it used in that context. this isn't something I've put any thought it research into.
  185.  
  186. Because kink is meant to fill a sexual need
  187.  
  188. I believe that whether kink is sexual is very dependent upon what a person with the kink feels like they gain from it (i.e. whether the person with the kink links it to something sexual or not)
  189. Never heard it come up in a context that wasn’t. That’s all.
  190. Obviously, kink *can* be sexual. But for others, kink is about relieving stress, working through trauma, or building trust and intimacy with their partner.
  191.  
  192. Tricky question i feel, but if libido isnt in some way sexual as well then id say no
  193. Have no experience with it, just judging from what I’ve heard
  194. No idea what is considered a kink/not a kink at this point lol
  195. I mean,the kink arouses me so I guess it's sexual.
  196.  
  197.  
  198. I think kink is specifically about sexual arousal or attraction.
  199. Allo people are clearly interested in genital contact/penetration. Kinks don’t have to involve that at all.
  200.  
  201.  
  202. can be sensual and not sex
  203.  
  204.  
  205. Sexual stuff comes in all forms. Personally I feel like kinks are sort of just different ways one expresses themselves sexually (unless they are totally non-sexual).
  206.  
  207. It's something that sexually arouses you, so it's sexual
  208. Because it causes arousal depending on what it is.
  209.  
  210. I believe a kink doesn't have to be sexual, it can be something like a guilty plea to a certain extent.
  211.  
  212.  
  213. It depends on the kink to what I may think about it.
  214. A kink has to do with sexual feelings/desires right? I don't see how it'd be anything otherwise
  215.  
  216. Some kinks just make your attracted to someone
  217.  
  218.  
  219. Not enough context
  220. Isn't the point of a kink that it arouses you sexually? Or am I just uninformed?
  221.  
  222.  
  223. Sometimes it’s just about bonding with another person. It doesn’t have to lead to sex.
  224. More about arousal than fuckin I think? Maybe
  225.  
  226.  
  227. Kink can exist without sexual contact. I'm into sadomasochism but there are plenty of ways I can participate in that activity without anything becoming sexual.
  228. a lot of kinks are sexual but some aren’t
  229.  
  230. I mean, the whole point of a kink is that it’s something kooky that arouses you, whether or not that kink is inherently sexual is up to debate. For example, weight gain is inherently not sexual (as it doesn’t really have to do with genetalia or penetration) something like anal would be inherently sexual.
  231.  
  232.  
  233. I think that answer is different for every kinky person. But I’m vanilla, so I don’t know if I’m right here. :)
  234.  
  235. its sexual stimuli
  236. can be sensual only
  237.  
  238.  
  239. I've never seen a kink not related to sex
  240.  
  241. The generalized definition makes me relate it to a sexual meaning, but it can probably vary.
  242.  
  243. I’ve heard it only talked about in a sexual way
  244.  
  245. It's a specific sexual preference/excitment
  246. N/A
  247. depends on the person[s]  involved.
  248. My kink is more sensual than pain oriented
  249. Some kinks are inherently sexual, some aren't and it depends on the person
  250. I just don't get it
  251.  
  252. I guess its possible it is not, but atm im unsure how
  253. just a base feeling, i wouldn't be use the word kink if it was not for sexual reasons.
  254.  
  255.  
  256. It doesn't have any sexual effect on me.
  257. I don’t know
  258.  
  259.  
  260. the acts done are supposed to be intimate - it is frowned upon the kink community to expose unwilling participants in on the act. thus it's a private, personal thing no matter how many people are involved and what is done
  261.  
  262.  
  263. It’s hard to separate the two. It’s sexual but it isn’t sexual attraction toward another person
  264. If sexual pleasure is derived from the kink or the kink is sexual in nature or content, then yes. If it is not sexual pleasure and is instead intended for a different kind of pleasure (stress relief, for example), then it isn’t sexual.
  265.  
  266. It arouses you
  267.  
  268. I would just describe kink as something that most “normal” people would not find sexually attractive.
  269.  
  270. Not all kink is sexual, but the way my partner and I engage in kink definitely is. I don't like being touched by those with whom I do not have a strong emotional bond. Where I feel that bond, I am interested I touch both through sex and kink. For me it's both or neither, but I recognize it's not that way for everyone.
  271.  
  272. Kink isnt sexual to everyone, to some its a lifestyle and a way to ensure they live a happy life. For me it is only one part of my sex life and is contained to only my sex life. When I start a scene with my SO it is sexual in nature and the end goal is receiving sex.
  273. Sure some aces may have kinks, but you would be hard pressed to find someone willing to do engage in the kinks without some kind of actual sex involved.
  274. It is a way to release pent up energies and my kinks involve someone enjoying doing things to me.
  275.  
  276.  
  277. I understand the definition of "kink" to be things which a person finds sexually appealing or gratifying, despite not being traditionally/culturally considered sexual.
  278. I think it's a niche area of sexual expression
  279. Well maybe for some people it isn't
  280.  
  281. It is usually a form of pleasure or arosal that people do for sexual release. Not entirely sure but peoeoni know so it together and have never seperated it
  282. I don't know what kink means.
  283. Although often grouped together, sex and kink aren't mutually exclusive
  284. "Idk lol
  285. "
  286. Foot fetish’s exist
  287.  
  288. I don't think I feel aroused in the same way sexual people describe it when I look at or think about my kink. It's different. More like adrenaline and fear mixed with lots of emotions that can be somewhat unpleasant yet good and addicting, but no sexual feelings in my "parts" and no desire to have sex.
  289.  
  290.  
  291. It is meditative or therapeutic for me. Sexual contact and the aim of achieving orgasm is separate from exploring a kink such as whipping.
  292.  
  293. It's just a physical response
  294. Kinks can be used sexually but a kink at its core is just something that in some manner is considered “obscure” that someone derives pleasure from.
  295.  
  296.  
  297. Only speaking from my experience I've only experienced kink in a sexual way.
  298. I don’t understand the question
  299.  
  300. To my understanding, kinks have a sexual response/feeling in the person who has them.
  301.  
  302.  
  303. I'm not a fan of kink myself but others seem to be okay with it and sometimes it even isn't sexual, but I don't know enough about the subject
  304.  
  305. If kink isn't sexual then what is it? Confused lol
  306.  
  307.  
  308. its inherently a sexual thing
  309.  
  310. Anything involving or relating to arousal I consider sexual
  311.  
  312. Some kinks are inherently sexual, others don't involve sexual organs
  313. Cause it's mostly done in sexual spaces
  314.  
  315. Cultural associations
  316.  
  317. I think kink is playing into our most (or more) primal urges. The subconsciousness, something like the "Id". For some (or many) people this is sex / sexual urges. But it doesn't have to be. It could also be related to sensual feelings or power for example.
  318. I feel like it depends on the kink and that it doesn’t always have to relate to something sexual.
  319.  
  320. "It can be. But that's more as a side effect from people sexualizing it (along with everything else, like how talking to someone opposite gender = oh, you like them? *wink wink*). It doesn't help fetishes often get involved.
  321. But most kinks aren't actual sex. There is often a psychological or emotional aspect involved ""normal everyday life"" doesn't fulfill--or curiosities that could be far too dangerous if trust and boundaries are not established--and that's what people really seek out."
  322. It involves sexual stimulus.
  323.  
  324.  
  325. It can make people aroused, but not necessarily lead to sexual desire.
  326.  
  327. I know asexual people who say they have kinks. I don't get it, but I trust what they say about themselves.
  328.  
  329. Kink can be performed as a sexual act or as a romantic act, or can be done casually. It doesn’t always need to be sexual
  330. If it doesn't have to do with something sex-related , is it sexual just because I'm turned on by it?
  331. To me it all seems about sexual arousal. I still don't think I would do it.
  332. Because it is used exclusively for sexual gratification
  333.  
  334.  
  335. See above. More about trust, and mental feelings rather than sexual stuff.
  336.  
  337. Everyone experiences kink differently
  338. Kink can be just different kinds of intimacy
  339.  
  340.  
  341. You can have a kink and still be ace
  342.  
  343. If the kink plays a role in having you or others achieve an orgasm, it's sexual. If you like being tied up because you like the feel of the embrace, it's not sexual.
  344.  
  345. The only kinks I know are sexual.
  346. Bdsm is sexual.
  347. It obviously can be sexual, but for me it's about the sensations and aesthetic
  348.  
  349.  
  350. Because there is a sexual charge behind it, and is considered to be something that id sexual. I know that you can be into kinks and still be asexual because sexuality is based off of attraction, but it’s too much of a sexually charged thing to me personally to consider liking kinks to still being ace
  351. It's about trust/comfort
  352.  
  353. I think they're sexual, because I haven't heard of a kink that isn't sexual.
  354.  
  355.  
  356. I’ve not heard of it mentioned outside that context
  357. Not all kinks involve sex
  358.  
  359.  
  360. When I was younger I thought a kink was something you just had a intense interest/fascination with (not sexual) to the point of almost obsession. It was a word that was used to describe someone who was more into their hobbies/interests (so it was considered a kink, still not sexual) than a regular person. Although someone told me I was really, really wrong and it was a sexual thing... what?
  361. Don't know, just do. Have probably been conditioned to think so from all the sexual connotation it has in different medias and on the internet.
  362. If something turns you on in erotic areas, it is sexual
  363.  
  364. Kink is some attraction to particular acts or other which have no direct relation to sex
  365.  
  366. I think of the word "kink" with being pleased (sexually) by somewhat unusual things
  367. Kink can be sexual but also not. There's more of a mental thing to it, rather than a physical.
  368.  
  369. Weird things that get you hot and bothered but more in a "I want to cuddle with you and get close to you" way than a "I want to have sex with you" way.
  370.  
  371.  
  372. I think it can be held in a non sexual context
  373.  
  374. Not everything is for the sake of having sex
  375.  
  376.  
  377. Because kink doesn't necessarily lead to sex.
  378. Kinks regard sexual preferences.
  379. Some people do it for sexual pleasure, for me... it's more of a way that I interact with some people. It can be a way that you trust the other person, that you show respect and admiration to someone. Sometimes it's just part of your life, and the sexual aspect doesn't really come into play. When kink becomes sex, is when I step out of the room, but I know a lot of people that are sexual with kink and I respect that. Because nothing is just black and white.
  380.  
  381. If it serves the purpose to turn someone on, it's probably sexual
  382. feels intimate like sex but not quite. more like forplay
  383. Because the question confused me.
  384. Uh idk
  385.  
  386.  
  387. kink can sometimes be more so about intimacy, trust, expression, and/or relief
  388. not inherently
  389.  
  390.  
  391. A kink is supposedly an abnormality or very specific case of sexual attraction or preference.
  392.  
  393. because not everyone gets off on kinks
  394. There's no actual sex involved
  395. I guess I don't see kinks happening outside of sex.
  396. It can be sexual, but my understanding is that sometimes it's not. The analogy that's relatable to me is kissing: sexual things can and frequently do happen when people are making out, but people also frequently do it without anything else happening in order to experience the feeling of emotional connection. Likewise, sexual stimulation doesn't have to be involved with kink, and asexuals who like it may be engaging in it for the feeling of emotional connection and/or some kind of power dynamic.
  397. It's sexual if I make it out to be, most of the time I don't. (if that makes sense)
  398.  
  399. It is how I have seen kink exclusively used in regards to peoples interests/ fetishes.
  400.  
  401. Never really thought about it much before but I don’t see myself interested in stuff like that.
  402.  
  403.  
  404. While they can be, they don’t have to be. I do have kinks that arouse me, but they never lead to an urge or desire for sex.
  405. I am not sure.
  406.  
  407. I think a lot of it (especially BDSM type)is based on underlying issues and not sex itself.
  408. It depends on the people involved
  409.  
  410. It elicits sexual feelings
