Take this week so far as an example. Saturday night was, by any definition, kinky. I participated in BDSM, D/s, voyeurism, and exhibitionism, and felt completely in my element. It was a fantastic night.
Sunday I had group sex with three other people, an event so common in my life that I hardly ever mention it in LJ.
By contrast, today I couldn't wait to get home from work! Not because I was looking forward to some deviant sexual adventure, but because I was looking forward to a quiet dinner at home with femetal, followed by an exciting date with a breadboard, a soldering iron, and some electronics components. I don't recall if I've mentioned this in other posts, but I've finally gotten off my duff and started to teach myself electronics, and while I'm just starting out I'm having a blast! My current self-assigned project is to build the simplest computational device I could think of- one that can add 2 bits and give a binary representation of the result in a pair of LEDs, using no integrated circuits. (The army of killer robots will come soon enough. I want to get a firm grounding in the basics first.) It's harder than you'd think (or at least harder than I originally thought, having zero background in component electronics), but I made some real progress tonight. I worked out a design, taught myself how to solder (first time!), and built it. It doesn't work right, but I think my basic approach is sound. It was enormous fun, and I'm learning a lot.
Can you get any nerdier than that? I think not.
I'd say that I'm well-balanced, but we all know better than that. I spend almost no time in the middle. It's always one extreme or the other, and I adore both ends of the spectrum.
Is it a matter of societal perception being skewed, or is my experience really that unusual? I know of at least one other person who is likely in the same situation (I'm looking at you, tacit), so at the very least it's not unique.
I really love my life.
