Praise Kink 101 – 4 Tips to Keep Your Spouse From Going Insane
One of the most common kinks or sexual fetishes out there is the praise and admiration kink. That’s right, that thing where your partner wants to be spoiled rotten by you, because they crave your attention and approval. Have you ever been with a partner that thrives off of hearing words like “wonderful”, “pretty”, or “good”? Here are some tips for keeping your kinky spouse from going off the deep end without you even knowing it.
#1 – Talk About It
If Your Partner Has a Praise Kink How Can You Respond?
If you’re the type of person that loves to give praise and feel needed, then you know how amazing it feels to hear your partner tell you how much they appreciate what you do for them. What if all that lost attention was coming back, and in your face? For some people with a praise kink, it can feel like a full-blown infatuation. They flirt with you and make all kinds of innuendos about what they want you to do for them, and it’s all so flattering! Not to mention, you get to be the object of their wildly effusive praise.
What’s not to love? You know that admiration/need feeling you get when you’re around someone you really like (and have a crush on) right before they lean in and kiss you? Imagine that with an actual person instead of just a concept. Do try this experiment sometime: put yourself in your partner’s mindset, or even pretend that they’re the ones “feeling the need” (if it helps). It’s like that, only times ten.
Praiseworthy Gimmicks – What’s the Best Way To respond When They Start To Flaunt Their Praise Kinky Side?
The best way to respond to someone with a praise kink is to not give them the attention they want so desperately. This is where all of that flattery and innuendo becomes a problem. Your partner will continue to make attempts to draw you in, and it will be hard for you not to fall for any of it. You can try ignoring their advances, but once they know how much you care about them, they’ll only get more twisted up in your head. You can try to just come out and tell them you want some alone time, but they’ll take that as a sign of rejection and claim that you aren’t being loving.
The best way to respond is to utilize their tactics, mostly because you’ll be more comfortable doing it than trying something new. You might not find success right away, but if you keep trying, there’s a good chance that they’ll eventually leave you alone. In order to best do this, use the following techniques:
How Do You Respond When Someone With A Praise Kink Accuses You Of Being “Un-Praiseworthy”?
If you ignore your lover’s advances, they’ll only get more desperate to receive praise from you. They’ll start saying things like “you don’t deserve me”, or “you’ve shown no effort to keep our relationship strong”. You know that all of that is an exaggeration, and it’s just a way for them to get their praise fix from somewhere. Insults like these can be the beginning of a downward spiral. They may stop being as affectionate to you, and they might even take this time away from each other to start seeing someone else. This is where all of the compliments and flattery will start to come back, more intense than before. You can try to ease their mind with some kind of response. But, it’s not always the best idea to go into this situation with a rant on your tongue!
This situation is fine to address by complimenting them on their affection, and saying that their advances have gotten to you too. This might make them feel bad, so you can reassure them that it’s no problem. It may take a great deal of effort and self-control for you to be able to give praise in such a way as not to let anything else get in the way.
You’ll want to make sure that you compliment them equally and sincerely. There’s a difference between saying “I really like that outfit”, and “I really like the way you dress, I find it cute”. Don’t get carried away with the flattery either!
