What is an experimentalist?

Experimentalists are really eager to try out new things. They are incredibly curious and ask lots and lots of questions. They want to find out all they can about all kinds of kinks and fetishes before having a go themselves.

They're always up for trying something different and are going to be interested in what you want to do, as their curiosity and openness mean they’re very rarely judgemental. New ideas are what keep the experimentalist happy.

Reading about things and asking questions about certain scenes or activities is where most experimentalists start but once they have a grip on an idea they want to give it a go themselves. It’s very important for an experimentalist to get all the safety information before jumping into trying out an activity themselves. Their eagerness can lead them into dangerous situations for experimentalists need to be reined in sometimes for their own safety.

All-rounders are similar to experimentalists but they don’t have the same drive to keep trying new things. They’re happy to try new things or stick to whatever their partners like. They are very laid back with no real, deep desires of their own for any one kink or fetish. As they enjoy variety, all-rounders are good for all kinds of scene. They will be eager to try new things and will also be good at suggesting new things to try or add in to a scene to give it a different twist. All-rounders enjoy making other people happy so they’re fantastic partners for anyone because of their enthusiasm. All-rounders might not have the same passion that some people with specific fetishes and kinks do but they are more flexible. Happy to try out new things, they’re not set in their ways or reluctant to do something different. An all-rounder is the kind of person who will happily be the exhibitionist one day and a voyeur the next. They’ll be your slave for a while then will be your dominant. Variety is the key to a happy all-rounder.
    Switch is the BDSM term for someone who isn’t always just Dominant or only submissive, they are a combination of the two. They enjoy being the top in a scene sometimes but are equally as comfortable being the bottom at other times. They have a real desire for both but may be more Dominant or more submissive. Switches don’t tend to have a 50/50 split Dom or sub.
    An exhibitionist enjoys being watched. This may include exposing private parts of their body to onlookers or in a public space where someone might see or it might be indulging in play in front of an audience. It could also be more private, in a setting between a person and his/her lover/s. Exhibitionism can be combined with submission. This way a dominate partner can order a sub to expose themselves in certain ways. They might order a sub to wear a short skirt and no knickers whilst out in public, or to wear ladies underwear under work clothes if it’s a male submissive. They might ask a submissive to do something at a play event so everyone there can see. Enjoying the thrill of being exposed, exhibitionists have to be careful not to do anything illegal. It is good for exhibitionists to play at play events where people are expecting to see partially naked and naked people. They can play our their fantasies and desires in a supportive atmosphere. It is fun to play in public, but exhibitionists have to be safe and keep their activities legal when they are out where there’s the possibility of members of the public seeing them.
