YKINMK, or Your Kink Is Not My Kink, is a common parlance form of internet shorthand to draw a clear distinction between what someone else does, and what the person espousing YKINMK does. Often times this statement is a prelude to further commentary such as YKINMK and that's:

  • disgusting.
  • abuse.
  • unsafe.
  • OK.


  • YKINMK: Your Kink Is Not My Kink
  • YKNMKBTOK: Your Kink’s Not My Kink But That’s OK
  • YKINMKBYKIOK: Your Kink Is Not My Kink But Your Kink Is OK
  • YKINNMK: Your Kink Is Not Necessarily My Kink
  • YKINOK: Your Kink Is Not OK [usually referring to extremes such as pedophilia, non-consensual, unsafe, etc.]
  • YKIOK, IJNMK: Your Kink Is OK, It’s Just Not My Kink

Best Practices

It is best to take an attitude of inclusivity and to avoid judging others for their consensual kink. Ergo, “And that's OK” is considered the preferred use of the term.
