Non-sexual kink isn't somehow ‘superior’ to sexual kink

Kink doesn't have to involve sex, but it doesn't have to not involve sex.
Non-sexual kink isn't somehow ‘superior’ to sexual kink. Sexual play isn't ‘lesser’ than non-sexual play.
For some of us, kink and sex are interwoven. Some of us have kinks from which the sexual component cannot be removed.
Kink and sex are distinct concepts; one doesn't imply the other. But making sexual kink a second-class citizen is not only sex-negative - it's _kink_-negative in its failure to support the diversity of Risk-Aware Consensual Kink.☙
