Fetishism Uncovered

Most of you will have been exposed to fetishism in some way, shape or form – on the TV, in movies or in your personal lives. If you were ‘forced’ to watch Sex and the City with a partner then you might remember the shoe salesman with a shoe fetish. There is a lot of mystery surrounding fetishism and below is some information you’ve always wanted to know, but never dared to ask!

The word originates from the Portuguese word feitico, which means "obsessive fascination". And the definition is: “the use of an inanimate object or a specific part of the body for physical or mental sexual stimulation”.

Good doggie.

I don't have a foot fetish, because, by the definition given, I don't need to see feet to be aroused, and I'm not into sucking toes or even kissing them.

But I find myself very curious as to what a woman's feet look like, and if she has nice feet, I find it's a big plus. I'm not sure what that means - maybe it's a mild fetish?
