Coming out kinky and then accepting it isn't easy in a society which shames those who enjoy sex. Fetish.com writer Sienna Saint-Cyr has been there - and gives her top tips for survival.
 

Coming out kinky tip 1: Read

One thing that helped me in coming out kinky was reading stories and seeing if they turned me on. This meant I explored a lot of topics. Some more Dominant and submissive related, others being about rough sex, some on bondage. Then there are fetishes. I examined many areas and found that most of them were hot for me in some way or another. I didn’t always know why they were hot, just that they were.

But should you read fact or fiction when coming out kinky? I did a lot of reading in both. Indeed, both are important because as I read the fiction and found it hot, a lot of it wasn’t realistic. Therefore, the nonfiction came in to explain how things should really happen. Moreover, it was helpful in figuring out the why portion. The books that helped me most were The New Bottoming Book and The New Topping Book, by Janet W. Hardy and Dossie Easton; and SM 101 by Jay Wiseman. For fiction, I suggest going to literotica.com or one of the other free sites, at least in the beginning.
 

Coming out kinky tip 2: Get out there!

Once you’ve explored with reading (and/or movies) and are fairly certain that you want to know more, the next step in coming out kinky is asking around. While some venues can offer introductory courses and demonstrations, I’ve personally found this avenue riskier in the beginning.

To start, try an internet search on kink/BDSM munches. Those are for meeting people and asking questions. No actual scenes take place. Chances are, you’ll find others there that have been raised in similar environments. Once you’ve met some good and trustworthy people, then find a venue to watch demos.
 

Coming out kinky tip 3: Slow and steady wins the race.

If you take things slow and gradually lower into kinky waters, you’re going to have an easier time adjusting. When we’ve been taught—brainwashed—to believe that enjoying ourselves sexually is sinful or inappropriate, we have to face our shame and guilt eventually. Consequently, this is why talking to others that have been through similar situations is helpful when you're coming out kinky. Remember: this kind of shame and guilt is nonsense and serves no purpose other than to make us feel bad.

Owning who we are is beautiful, and accepting ourselves divine in its own right. So try not to judge yourself as you are coming out kinky. Instead, remain open to what you feel based on the things you read, discuss, and later witness or take part in. Accepting ourselves means we get to experience a level of joy free of the guilt and shame we’d walked around with previously.
 

Coming out kinky tip 4: Accept we're all at it!

Guess what? In the end, it turns out that most of us are coming out kinky anyway. When we accept our kinky side, it means we become conscious of our choices rather than have that side sneak out in non-consensual ways. We get to express ourselves without judgment, have better sex, and more fun! In my experience, I’ve found almost everyone is kinky in some way. So be brave, explore, and experience the joy that comes with accepting and loving who you are!
