What is a praise kink?
A praise kink is a type of sexual kink where one gets pleasure or arousal from being praised or complimented. These can be compliments about your appearance or telling you that you did something good. The range is large, but typically it’s simply about being seen for something you’ve done. Even down to the manner of which you ate your food.
Praise kinks may be unfamiliar to some people, but for others, it’s a normal day. In the large world of BDSM, many believe that it’s all about discipline and punishment. That isn’t always the case. A lot of dominants actually give their submissives compliments for sexual gratification.
It is also very important to clarify the differences between a fetish and a kink. If someone has a fetish, they have an unusually strong fixation for an object or act which is needed to gain arousal. A kink, however, simply enhances a person’s sexual arousal. In essence, a praise kink just adds to the sexual experience and may even help your partner climax better or faster.
There are many ways to give and receive praise to satisfy one’s praise kink including but not limited to praising:
- Physical appearance or body parts
- Performance during sexual activities
- Obedience or submission
- Intelligence, creativity, or other non-sexual traits
