TikTok’s Viral ‘Kink Test’ Can Help You Learn What Kind of BDSM You’re Into

Here's exactly how to take it. Have fun!


Jordyn Taylor |

Yes, you read that right. TikTok users are taking a free online test to discover exactly what kinds of BDSM they’re into, and sharing the results on the social media platform. In doing so, they’re not only making eye-opening self-discoveries, but – as with the broader #KinkTok world – helping to de-stigmatise a perfectly normal kind of sex that many still see as taboo.

The origin of the latest trend is a 2019 video from TikTok user @freethegators, in which they share the results of a BDSM test they took online. “It’s a lot of fun, and I think a lot of people would like to do it,” they say in the video. “Plus, you’ll be able to know a lot more about your TikTok crush.”

Thousands of people have taken the test and posted their own results since then:

What Is This Intriguing Kink Test You Speak Of?

Those of us who are tapped into the world of BDSM – an umbrella term for sex acts that fall under Bondage/Discipline, Domination/Submission, and Sadism/Masochism – might already be familiar with the “kink test” in question, since it’s been around a lot longer than the latest TikTok trend.

It’s actually called the BDSM Test, and it’s been helping kinksters find words to describe their sexual desires since it was created in 2014.

Thanks for the History Lesson, but How Do I Take It?

If you head to BDSMtest.org, you can choose between two questionnaire options: a shorter test with “reasonable accuracy,” or a longer, more accurate test that’s “recommended if you’re strongly into BDSM.”

The tests presents you with a list of statements – think, “I would like to have sex with multiple people at the same time”; “I like forcing my partner into submission, much more than them submitting spontaneously”; and “Feeling physically overpowered is one of the most liberating sexual feelings” – and asks you to mark your reaction on a seven-point spectrum from “absolutely disagree” to “absolutely agree.”
