Bringing Kinky Back

Why did the "kinky" icon disappear on my OKcupid profile? How can I get it back?

I have an OKCupid profile and one of my personality icons used to be kinky, as in above average kinky within my demographic, I guess. Recently, I answered and re-answered some questions, many of which were about sex. I thought my answers were leaning toward being even more kink and sex positive, and yet...my kinky personality icon went away and my match percentages with (kinky?) people got a little lower. So, Mefites, what can I do to bring back the kink? Do I need to answer certain questions in certain ways? Is it better to make the questions be "very important" or "a little important"? (It's not that I want to manipulate the OKC system; I want to be honest about myself...it's just...in the dating arena, it's important to me to be matched with other kinky folks and to be represented as such because...I am.) Thanks in advance!
