A Labor Of Love & Kink: My New Book, Dating Kinky, Is FREE Oct 1-3, 2018

Dating Kinky: How to find the kinky love of your fantasies.

I first had the idea to write Dating Kinky about three years ago, before I started my kinky dating site, or even intended to create one. In fact, the site grew out of the book, even if the book took longer to reach completion.

And now, it’s here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GMTCMBK

Live.

And free, today and tomorrow, through Amazon kindle.

YAY!

Super-YAY!

I really wanted to write a book that offers real, approachable, and actionable information on how to put yourself out there and meet kinky folk, poly people, fetishists and more—without making it sound like some sort of uber-secret society with special handshakes and a 117-point process for determining whether you are “TWOO” enough to get in.

Some of the things I cover:

  • Writing your profile
  • Picking your best pictures
  • Safety and privacy online
  • The first message
  • Community
  • Rejection (giving and getting)
  • And more…

I’ve put a lot into this book for the kinky community, and so have others.

Taylor J. Mace of http://www.feistyfoxfilms.com wrote a chapter on “Protocol Across The Miles.”

Protocol Across The Miles, by Taylor J. Mace, excerpt from Dating Kinky

Alex W. of  http://SexologyBae.com co-wrote “Don’t Believe Everything You Think,” about examining our assumptions and our attractions.

Beyond The First Date,” by Rebecca Blanton, author of “The Big Workbook for Submissives,” from http://loveletterstoaunicorn.com and https://www.fatchicksontop.com is an entire section about entering the kink community and making the most of it.

Luna Matatas of http://lunamatatas.com wrote “Five Things I Ask Potential Dominants Or Submissives Pre-Date,” an insightful guide to getting to know how people think their kink.

Other amazing people, like Ferns, Michael C., David Shade, and Franklin Veaux also contributed with their knowledge and presence in my life.

It’s been an amazing journey to get to this point, and I’m excited to share this with you.

I hope you’ll enjoy “Dating Kinky: How to find the kinky love of your fantasies.” and share it with others!

Just Be Yourself AND Be More Than That

FUCKITY FUCK Locks

When it comes to dating, people often say, “Just be yourself. Just be authentic.”

The problem with that is that a lot of us suck as humans.

In people, there is no magical STEP-BY-STEP FUCKITY FUCK PROCESS. Humans are not combination locks, to be opened with a series of moves.

And so, we not-so-good-at-being-human humans miss out on the FUCKITY FUCK (or whatever goodness of humanity: hugs, smiles, cuddling, deep love, satisfying orgasms… whatever).

Can Dating Kinky Signal Boost You?

Can Dating Kinky Signal Boost You?

Dating Kinky as an idea is a site all about connecting kinksters for love, sex, romance, dating, play, friendship, cyber (is that even a word, anymore??), or whatever mutually consensual positive things you’re into.

Dating Kinky as a brand is also about education, because me.

I’m Nookie (NookieNotes on FetLife), and I own Dating Kinky. I am an educator. I’ve spent most of my professional life teaching and training and writing (vanilla and non-), and I do what I do in kink because I love a kink world where people understand what it means to kink.

I’ve spent years doing what I do and building a bit of a following, and I’ve recently stepped out of a few safe channels to grow in new areas.

All in all, with FB and FL combined, I have the potential of reaching 110k kinksters with a single post.

(see my FetLife account status posts and Whips, Chains & Duct Tape on Facebook for two examples of places I share)

Of course, that doesn’t always happen, but sometimes, it does reach a few thousand (woohoo!) and really gets some good dialog going. And I as I add more of this type of content, the engagement will grow.

And as I prepare to relaunch, I’ve made it my mission to NOT be the only voice DK pushes forward.

That’s where YOU come in.

Send me links to your awesome content, and I’ll boost your signal, if it fits well with our overall goals of friendly, approachable, non-shaming, awesome kinky and sex-positive stuff.

I will share your links AS THEY ARE.

I’m not looking for guest blogs (yet, that’s a possibility in the future for other boosting), but for direct links to push traffic to YOUR home, to introduce people to you.

That’s it.

No strings.

I mean, yeah, goodwill is awesome. Signal boosts in return are awesome.

But NOT NECESSARY.

It all comes around, somehow.

Got questions? Shoot me a message or a tweet or call. Happy to answer.

Body Positivity AND Inclusivity…

Body Types Positivity

One of the things I’ve been focused on with Dating Kinky is creating an atmosphere of  kink, sex, and body positivity.

In the original site, I offered the following options for “body type” on profiles:

  • Average
  • Petite
  • Slim
  • Athletic
  • Curvy
  • A Little Extra
  • Muscular
  • BBW / BHM

In the new site, I’ve separated (by request):

  • BBW – Big Beautiful Woman
  • BHM – Big Handsome Man

As I’m working on these today, and preparing to migrate the old site data over to the new site, I was thinking about how we’ll let all the men know that we now have an option for them, when I was stopped in my (thinking) tracks.

This is a very binary view, no matter how body positive it is.

So, what to put in for the non-binaries?

  • BGP – Big Gorgeous Person?
  • FSP – Fluffy Sexy Person?
  • MFTL – More For The Lovin’?

What?

I’ll admit I’m pretty much lost in this one, and I’m asking YOU, the ones who might use a label like this, what you might want to see here.

Online Kinky Dating: The First Message, Part I

The First Message

Hello, would you be interested in talking about a prison role play based around the strict UK system I spent sometime as an inmate recently and it got me thinking
— Anon

No.
—NookieNotes in reply to Anon

When people ask me questions about kinky dating, especially online, the number one question is usually something like this, “What do I say?” or  like, “How do I approach KinkyDreamBoopsie705 online, get their attention, and quite possibly make a connection?”

A good first message will contain the following elements:

  • Introduction
  • Interest
  • Respect
  • Potential connection
  • Invitation

Introduction. Who are you? I can’t tell you how many times people write to me without actually introducing themselves. Continue reading “Online Kinky Dating: The First Message, Part I”
