Somewhat shy by nature, 24 year-old masochist Ryan is cautiously re-entering the BDSM (bondage discipline sadism masochism) scene after a year-long hiatus following the traumatic death of his gay lover and mentor. Now the self-confessed “pain slut” begins to make tentative steps to blossom anew in the fetish community, competing in the Mr. Atlantic Canada Leather Contest, and reaching out in unexpected directions to explore BDSM. Will Ryan find happiness, fulfillment, and true love, or is only more heartache on the horizon?
"Kink" is all real, all the time.
All the characters in "Kink" are over 18; and have freely agreed to participate in the series. "Kink" is about real people and real stories. It's not porn. It's not exploitative. It's about consenting adults living life on their own terms.
Welcome to Kink.
Join us on the adventure.
Over the course of 5 years, 63 episodes and dozens of unforgettable characters, KINK has showcased the personal exploration of alternative sexuality through the stories of many, very real, people.
Our approach is up close and totally personal. We get to know our subjects intimately -- their lifestyles, their fetishes, their relationships, and how they manage to live in two separate worlds. Many of our subjects are still learning about themselves, and we get to accompany them on their journeys of self-discovery.
KINK takes us to places some of us have never dreamed of.

"frank and uninhibited" Starweek, 2001
