It is lovely to have so many people interested in writing these introductions for me. I love that people are engaged with Kink of the Week and it is a great way of discovering all the different and varied kinks that get people going and this topic, bought you by Sex Blog(of Sorts) is no exception. It is one that I find really interesting and I can’t wait to see what people write about it.
The ‘brutal’ in ‘Brutalism’ comes from the French ‘brut,’ meaning ‘raw.’ And that’s exactly the kind of sex that concrete and Brutalist architecture conjures up for me. It makes me dream of dark corners and shadows, of fucking strangers, of skin grazing rough surfaces, of being forced …
Concrete is, essentially, as far from the warmth and comfort of a bed as you can get, and I wonder if that’s part of the appeal. It’s the perfect backdrop to fantasies that are equally rough and shadowy.
It’s not for everyone, of course. For some people, having a kink for a building material or a type of architecture must seem plain weird. For others, it’s the wrong kind of architecture: who would choose the harsh, grey angles of Brutalism when then are so many other, much more beautiful, types of building out there?
So, how about you? Can you understand the appeal? Do you have fantasies that involve concrete buildings? Have you had a memorable real life experience in a Brutalist building? Does it turn you on just to look at concrete? Is it for the reasons above, or for different ones?
If it’s not your thing, feel free to write about that, too. Is it because it’s ugly, or impersonal? Does the whole concept of being turned on by a building leave you utterly bemused? Maybe you live somewhere where this type of architecture isn’t common, and this kink has never even crossed your mind.
Whether it does it for you or not, share your thoughts for Kink of the Week. Fantasies, real life stories, and erotica are all welcome. Tell us: is concrete one of your kinks, or does it leave you cold?
*Don’t forget Kink of the Week is not just about personal experiences and tales, you can also share you fiction here too. So why not pen me a dirty ditty, a torrid tale, or a steamy story around the current topic.*
