Kink is an umbrella term often used to describe a wide variety of consensual relationship practices that explore enjoyable intersections of power, control, sensation, trust, vulnerability, fantasy and intentionality. Although this kind of play can be a rich and satisfying way for people to connect more profoundly with others, it can also involve a lot of work. The added vulnerability and intensity that makes kink interesting, can also bring up issues around trust, trauma and self-esteem. Working with a kink-positive therapist can help to process issues without feeling like you need to hide or defend how you enjoy intimacy with your partners.
