The Many Faces of Fetish

What Is A Fetish?

Originally, a fetish was an object believed to have magical powers or a talisman for good luck.  This object would be worn or carried by the person in possession of it.

Today’s definition is more commonly the fixation  on an object or body part for sexual gratification.

The fetish can be an article of clothing like a bra, skirt or shoe. For others it can be a body part like a foot, neck or hair.  Sometimes, it’s the body type and not the body part like a tall, short or fat person.

Fabrics like rubber, leather or lace are fairly common.

An inanimate object like a balloon, snow or an automobile may provide arousal for other individuals.

Interestingly, men have fetishes more often than women.
