Kinky & Proud! Why You Should Celebrate Your Fetish (More than You Already Do)
There are great reasons to be open with yourself about the things you enjoy, though you may not want to flaunt your freak flag in public just yet if you’re worried about repercussions.
Accepting your fetish is key.
A fetish can be an integral part of your sexuality that you cannot change. As long as you know safe and consensual ways to practice it, there’s no need to feel as if you have something dirty to hide. Of course, if your fetish is having something dirty to hide, go ahead and feel that way.
If you can accept your fetish, you’ll immediately become a more confident person. You’d be surprised by how much confidence is key to getting all of the action you want, whether it be on a more traditional dating site or on a fetish dating site.
You’ll be a happier person.
No one wants to date a person that can’t find any joy in themselves. If you’re going to be the best catch you can be, you’re going to need to find out how to be happy in your own skin. For many fetishists, that’s as simple as admitting to their fetishes, and admitting that it’s okay to have those fetishes.
It makes sense that you’ll have a better, healthier life if you’re willing to indulge yourself. That obviously extends to the better, healthier life you’ll have if you’re willing to embrace the things that not everyone may accept, but that are important to you.
Your fetishes and kinks are a part of you. If you don’t accept that, you’re not going to be having the good life you want to live. It’s as simple as that, and as easy to change.
This doesn’t mean you have to wear your latex to work.
We know that it’s tempting to let random people know about your fetish. That doesn’t mean that it’s a good idea, or that it’s key to your own sexual and emotional health.
We’re not saying that the key to being happy is to tell the greatest possible number of people about your fetish. This isn’t the case. Instead, we’re saying that the key is in being proud of it. That doesn’t mean talking about it, it means being secure in your sexuality and feeling that it is above challenge.
Note: when we say “sexuality,” we mean all the complicated and disparate feelings and things that make up you as a sexual being. We don’t mean whether you’re straight, gay, pansexual, or only attracted to the Great Wall of China on Tuesday evenings.
Kinky people are happier in the long run.
People who practice kink are more likely to have embraced their own sexual sides. They’re more likely to have fulfilling sexual relationships, and they’re more willing to ask for what they want in those relationships meaning that they’re more likely to get what they want.
Unsurprisingly, that leads to greater overall happiness. After all, if you’re physically and emotionally satisfied most of the time, you’re probably going to be happy.
Don’t wait to make sure you’re living the best possible quality of life. It’s your own sexual freedom, so don’t let anyone else dominate it.
