What defines a fetish, though, isn't what the activity or object of desire is so much as the role it plays in someone's life. While people use the terms "fetish" and "kink" interchangeably, a kink means an activity or behavior that someone enjoys that exists outside the "norm" of "traditional" sex. Someone's kink may be bondage, and they may be incredibly excited when they're tied up Meanwhile, a turn-on may be something that simply arouses a person. When we think of kink, we often think of BDSM, which involves an erotic power exchange through dominance and submission. Reyne adds that people often have more than one kink or one fetish, and there is often overlap: For instance, someone may engage in spanking as part of a role-playing scenario in which one partner is dressed up as a schoolgirl and the other like a professor.

Whether it happens intentionally or by accident, most women remember the first time they hit the orgasm jackpot. Further exploration led to a truly OMG moment, after which I became a big fan of early nights — no doubt much to the confusion of my parents. An entire world of solo entertainment had opened up and I wasted no time in giving myself a strained wrist from the efforts to keep that feeling going. But how was it for others? These women explain how they discovered the joy that comes from solo satisfaction. I got caught loads of times by my mum though — and started the obsession she developed about trying to stop me. I was sitting in a day-dream, just kind of wriggling around. I tried to replicate it but it never happened that way again. I used to have to climb the washing line post in our back garden in order to re-tie the line and I remember holding onto the top one day with my legs wrapped round it — I was trying to pull myself up when I got this amazing feeling.

Other reproductive benefits of sexual pleasure and orgasm such as improved bonding of parents have also been discussed but not thoroughly. Although sex is known to be highly reinforcing, behaviorist principles are rarely invoked alongside evolutionary psychology in order to account for human sexual and social behavior.
