What Does Fetish Mean?
A fetish refers to an intense sexual fixation on a generally unsensual object, body part or situation. Some individuals with extreme fetishes, or paraphilias, may not even be able to become sexually aroused or climax without their chosen fetish. According to the American Psychiatry Association, most fetishists are men.
There are all different types of fetishes, ranging from run-of-the mill to over the top. Some of the most common fetishes involve feet, hair, spanking and leather. Fetishes on the more unusual end of the spectrum, however, involve robots, urine, insects amputees and even cannibalism.
