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.

Our next two fetishes are two sides of the same coin, or perhaps two jaws of the same face: odaxelagnia is a fetish for being bitten or biting others. Our dentist almost seems gentle by comparison. This particular niche involves women using reptiles such as snakes as masturbatory objects — they insert the tail and enjoy the sensation as it tries to wiggle back out again — and goes back to Ancient Greece.
What excites one person will fall flat for another and everyone has individual things that get them going. Nasophilia is sexual attraction to the nose — this may mean a desire for genital contact with the nose, touching the nose or specific fantasies such as the desire to penetrate the nostrils. Phalloorchoalgolagnia describes those who are sexually aroused by receiving a painful hit to the male genitals.
