I've never really thought about the difference between "kink" and "fetish", but I see what you mean, mixedmedia (or I think I do). Would it be fair to say that "kink" is something you can play with and enjoy, while fetish is more about a narrowly focused area that you get off on? I also wonder about the original post. I'm not sure what it's about. Is it about espousing more playfulness and bringing that playfulness out of the bedroom and into the rest of one's life? I'm not clear what it was all about.
