What is Sexual Fetishism?
The interest of artists, musicians and writers in fetishism is an ordinary matter, because in what someone calls deviation, a man of art will find symbolism. The way it is. Sexual fetishism is when you are turned on by symbols related to inanimate objects, body parts, physical characteristics, or even social situations like age difference or social status. But let’s start in order.
These four rather crude letters contain a whole subculture based on psychophysiological domination or subordination of one of the partners. At the same time, it is closely related to things, which makes this sexual aesthetics close to the concept of fetishism.
In its modern incarnation, BDSM has acquired a lot of devices, accessories, formed the basis of an independent fashion trend, and therefore deserves special attention in our selection of fetishes.
We are well aware of the passion of our ancestors for public executions from fiction and historical literature. Physical punishment in public was part of the culture and was considered necessary for complete atonement. The use of force was also sexually oriented quite early. Sadomasochistic subjects were found in frescoes during the excavations of Pompeii. The most famous and ancient self-study of sexual pleasures – Kama Sutra – calls the propensity to hitting a part of amorous pleasure.
Psychological motives for voluntary submission can be hidden in getting rid of the fear of losing a partner. You do not try to meet unattainable expectations and offer him the opportunity to realize his despotic inclinations. At the same time, he understands that such games are hardly possible with other partners, so you will always be “his only”. Despite the rather dubious moral overtones, such a contractual union can be very long-term and lasting.
The diversity of BDSM culture allows to unite thrill-seekers of all stripes: from harmless ordinary people who want to add color to their boring sex life, to outright perverts. In general, there is nothing disgusting in this, and the sense of risk in BDSM is illusory, because the basic principles of this movement are safety, rationality, and voluntariness.
Even if you do not feel in yourself a penchant for hard joys, some stylish BDSM fetishes – a bandage made of chains and belts, leather clothes, collars – are worth purchasing for your wardrobe.
2. Foot fetish
Quentin Tarantino is a famous foot fetishist, and you will understand this perfectly if you look at each of his films. Remember those great scenes from Death Proof or Dusk Till Dawn or Grindhouse. Foot fetishism is safe and innocent, but requires a high level of hygiene.
Attraction to the feet, mainly to the female, is due to the fact that they were previously closed and caused analogies with other parts of the body that were inaccessible to the eye. If it is customary to cover the genitals for reasons of morality, then in the case of the legs it is just convenient. It was more difficult to see a woman’s leg under the lush long skirts of noble ladies or in peasant bast shoes than a breast – it is not surprising that the foot so excites the imagination.
As for tactile sensations, the legs are usually not stimulated much, although the skin on them is very delicate and sensitive. Touching your feet can trigger a fireworks display of sensations, from tickling to sexual arousal.
Pygmalionism or agalmatophilia is sexual attraction to statues, dolls or mannequins – aesthetically pleasing and safe, at least for humans. The fetishist delights in touching or contacting inanimate human images. The interest in this fetish can be explained by the fact that popular culture popularizes the image of a person with an ideal appearance.
As for the statues, the ideals of beauty of the sculptors of the Renaissance, for example, certainly differed from the modern ones, but they cannot be denied in naturalism and frankness. The fact that a person can inflame a passion for a statue is illustrated by the story of the sculptor Pygmalion, who fell in love with his creation and gave the name to a whole fetish. Most often, such inclinations are found in men, but the female version of pygmalionism is the love of sex toys.
According to sex stores, women are more likely to buy vibrators and lubricants, as one goes well with the other. So if your soul lies in Pygmalionism, then do not forget to choose the right lubricant for yourself. WET offers high quality lubricants made from natural ingredients with a minimum amount of chemicals. There are even edible lubricants in the assortment in case you are fine with your personal life even without a vibrator.
This fetish cannot be called inanimate, but it is also not fully animate. It’s about xylophilia, or simply love for trees. No, not in an ecological sense, but in the same sense as in the story with the rest of the fetishes. Xylophiles are stimulated by contact with wood. It can be a tree, or it can be a product made of it. Some fetishists prefer certain breeds, while some do not care about the color of the bark.
As strange as it may seem, the sexual attraction to the tree can also be explained. Sometimes trunks and branches take on a very bizarre shape, similar to human charms. In addition, the tree will never refuse and will not be offended by jokes about a log.
5. Role fetishes
So we tentatively named a whole group of fetishes, the essence of which is the role model. This can include: medical, military, teacher, secretary fetishes. The cover is different, but the essence is the same: a person experiences a vivid sexual attraction only if he sees that his partner is pretending to be, for example, a French gendarme of the times of the Revolution, or a doctor (this is much easier).
A large role is played by various kinds of attributes that go beyond clothing. For example, if we are talking about a medical fetish, then the game situation “examination by a doctor”, for example, a gynecologist, would be perfect. By the way, this is perhaps the easiest way to play with the world of fetishism – you will not see anything particularly incomprehensible, but you will definitely enrich your sex life with new experiences.
