When it comes to relationships, communication is key. In the early stages of any relationship, communication is actually critical. This is especially true when it comes to sexual communication. In order to have a happy, healthy, and fulfilling sex life, you need to be able to communicate your needs, wants, and desires to your partner. And that includes communicating your kinks and fetishes.
You need to be able to share your wants, needs, and desires with your partner if you want the relationship to flourish. This communication should include a discussion of your kinks and fetishes.
Why? Because if you wait too long to share this important information, you run the risk of your partner feeling disappointed, frustrated, or even misled.
What Are Kinks and Fetishes?
Before we get into why it’s important to share your kinks early on in a relationship, let’s first take a moment to define what we mean by “kink” and “fetish.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a kink is defined as “a peculiarity of sexual behavior.” and “as an unconventional sexual interest or desire.”
In other words, it’s something that gets you off in a non-traditional way. Some common examples of kinks include bondage, dominance/submission, role-playing, and exhibitionism etc., anything from enjoying spanking during sex to having a foot fetish.
A fetish, on the other hand, is defined as an excessive or obsessive admiration of a particular thing. So, for example, someone might have a foot fetish because they find feet to be aesthetically pleasing or erotic.
We all have kinks and fetishes
Here’s the thing: we all have kinks and fetishes. Some of us are aware of them and some of us are not. But regardless of whether or not we are conscious of our kinks, they exist within us. And when we get into a new relationship, there is always the potential for these kinks to come out.
If you’re interested in exploring your kinkier side with your partner, it’s best to share this information early on. That way, you can avoid any potential hurt feelings or misunderstandings down the road.
Why You Should Share Your Kinks Early
While some people are comfortable sharing their kinks early on in a relationship, others wait until they’re well established before broaching the topic. There are pros and cons to both approaches. Let’s start with the case for sharing your kinks early on.
The case for sharing early
Like we said before, communication is key in any relationship. And that communication should extend to all areas of your relationship – including sex.
If you’re hoping to explore your kinkier side with your partner, it’s important that you share this information early on in the relationship. That way, both you and your partner can decide if this is something that you’re both interested in pursuing together.
Additionally, sharing your kinks early on will help prevent any potential hurt feelings or misunderstandings down the road. For example, let’s say you’re interested in trying out bondage with your partner but you don’t mention it until after you’ve been dating for six months. Your partner may be taken aback by this request and feel like you’ve been hiding this side of yourself from them this entire time.
However, had you shared this information earlier on, they would have been able to process it and make an informed decision about whether or not they want to pursue this interest with you.
To put it simple: Share your kinks and fetishes early to avoid disappointment Later. The sooner you share your kinks with your partner, the sooner you can start enjoying them together.
If you wait until you’re already in a long-term relationship or even married, you might find that your partner is either not interested in indulging your kinks or is only interested in doing so under duress.
In addition, the longer you wait to share your kinks, the greater the chance that one or both of you will develop feelings of shame or embarrassment about them.
Kinks are nothing to be ashamed of, but societal pressure can make them feel that way. The sooner you share your kinks with your partner, the less likely this is to happen.
The case for waiting
On the other hand, there are some compelling reasons to wait before sharing your kinks with a new partner.
First of all, many people view sex as an intimate act and feel that sharing their kinks too soon might make the experience less special.
Secondly, some people worry that their partners will judge them or think less of them if they share their kinky side too early on in the relationship.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to deciding when to share your kinks with a new partner. Ultimately, it’s a personal decision that should be made based on what makes you feel most comfortable.
If you’re someone who feels shy or embarrassed about your kinks, then it might be best to wait until you’re in a more established relationship before sharing them.
On the other hand, if you’re comfortable with your sexuality and willing to take the risk that your partner might not be as open-minded, then go ahead and share early!
Whichever route you choose, just remember to communicate openly and honestly with your partner for the best possible outcome.
