But some sexual fetishes pose greater logistical challenges than others. Take exhibitionism , for instance. For some people, the thrill of being watched or knowing that someone could catch you at any moment adds extra frisson to sex. Finally, there are issues of consent at play—having an unwilling party witness your sexual activity goes against the necessity that everyone involved feels good about and agrees to take part in what's going down. Aside from the chances that being caught would affect your life, career, and criminal record negatively, catching you in flagrante could be traumatizing for other people.
Plus, spring and summer are on the way, so ample opportunity to indulge is right around the corner. Even so, knowing you love public sex is one thing. Understanding how to get the most out of your experiences is another. Learn how to avoid getting caught and how to elevate even the best public sex even further. Already wearing underwear and see a possible opportunity approaching regardless? Try slipping away quickly to remove it in advance before slipping it discreetly into your bag. No matter what your location of choice, it goes without saying that timing is everything. A popular beach or busy park, for instance, is going to be a much better pick after dark or on the off season that it will at noon on a sunny Saturday.
What is exhibitionism, anyway?
As a species, our sexual tastes are as varied as our fingerprints. Below is a list of every sexual fetish we can think of. Some, like the widely parodied foot fetish , are more commonplace, while others, like vorarephilia, are less well understood.
When it comes to sexual fetishes and kinks , it's not totally fair to say one fantasy is more "normal" than another. As long as all those who are participating are consenting adults, then what you do to get off is your business. But of course, a lot of us are curious about other people's sex lives, and it's always interesting to know what the most popular sexual fetishes and kinks are — and what people really want to try in bed. To find out what the most popular kinks are, The Sex Expo , a sexual wellness event in Brooklyn on September 22 and 23, teamed up with third party pollster, CheckMarket, to survey over people 54 percent identified as female, 45 percent identified as male, and one percent identified as gender non-binary mostly in their 20s and 30s, about their sexual fetishes and kinks.
