YKIOK,IJNMK was one of the cornerstone ideas of the alt.sex.bondage newsgroup in the 1990s. It stands for "Your Kink Is OK, It's Just Not My Kink", and embodies the principle of tolerating other people's consensual kinks even if we find them uninteresting or even repulsive.

The opposite term is YKINOK (Your Kink Is Not OK), used on Usenet since at least 1993; it is generally used in BDSM circles to deprecate those who condemn any particular kink (other than ones generally regarded as unacceptable, i.e. those actual practices - not mere fantasies - which violate the principles of safe, sane and consensual or risk-aware consensual kink). In other words, YKINOK is not used to condemn other people's kinks, but is used to condemn those who condemn other people's kinks.

Other similar terms are YKINMK (Your Kink Is Not My Kink) and YKINMKBYKIOK (Your Kink Is Not My Kink But Your Kink Is Okay).
