Ya'll know I love words and definitions - my undergraduate degree was in English ....
So let's talk about the difference between a kink and a turn on ....
And keep in mind, this explanation is simply *my* personal view on these words - you may define them differently, and that's OK!
Turn-on: Something that gets the juices flowing. This could include physical acts (things like being kissed on the neck) or physical attributes (men with facial hair or strong arms) or actions (you find it hot when your man swings an axe).
Kink: "unconventional sexual taste or behavior" - per Webster's dictionary. We used the examples before of: BDSM, hair-pulling, hand on the throat, men in uniform.
Keep In mind - "unconventional" Is really a relative term... something unconventional for you may not be to someone else. Meaning, what you may find kinky, someone else may classify as a turn-on.
It can be really quite confusing if you're trying to really separate the two terms; here's how I would differentiate between them ... a turn-on can happen anywhere, while a kink would be something you want to incorporate into the bedroom.
