The Nunnery:

Fetishes themselves don't bug me. It's how people react to them. I see posts online that basically say "WTF? How can people be turned on by croquet/ghosts/knees/vodka/etc.? They have serious problems!" and "What's the world coming to when _____ is a common turn-on?"

It's the internet age, people. I can accept this kind of behavior from young teens, but other people probably have experience with strange sexual practices. I'm sure most people have a kink or turn-on that other people would find odd.

By the way, this isn't from personal experience, as I have no kinks/fetishes. (and if I did, would I tell you?)

Didn't you already tell us that you have a medical fetish?
Generally, when people have that kind of reaction (particularly to something relatively tame, like, say, foot fetishism) I want to hurt them. Badly.

And yet stupid juries would probably label me the aggressor.

@Matrix: It's not sexual, though. It's more of an obsession.

I don't care about reactions to fetishes other than "We should kill/oppress them for having it." Honestly, if people are surprised, it doesn't surprise me.

Not as if we live in the same world.

I don't mind surprise. Disgust is what makes me want to introduce the speaker to my tire-iron.

I similarly don't care if they're disgusted. I don't know, it just seems more like posturing than anything. When it turns into action, then I care.

I don't even mind disgust as long as they can keep it to themselves; however, often disgust turns into "people with fetish X seriously have a psychological problem" or "people with fetish X are morally reprehensible and that kind of sex should be prohibited." These are the root beliefs that bug me.

I'll admit, some fetishes disgust me a little. Not ordinary things like foot fetishes, or stuff relating to clothes, or even furries. But incest squicks me, as does stuff relating to rape, or stuff involving coprophilia or urophilia.

Man, assembling Matrix's favorite fantasy would be....a daunting task, to say the least.

How the hell would the mechanics work?!

No, most of it's compatible. It's difficult to reconcile eyeglasses, corsets, or schoolgirl outfits with cavemen, but I don't think I can rule it out entirely.

Heh. I highly doubt anyone here wants to read a list of the things that turn me on. However, I don't consider myself to have any "fetishes" per se. I have kinks. The difference, to me, is that a fetish is something you need in order to get off. Just 'cos there are 31 OVER NINE THOUSAND flavors doesn't mean I think vanilla is any less delicious.

And yeah, I suppose disgust is all right if you keep it to yourself. But like John A Dreams said, when it gets to "these people have psychological problems" or "these people are subhuman" or "There Should Be a Law"... that's the point where I decide the speaker has a psychological problem. Luckily, I have a degree in psychology, and I know that such problems can be fixed with a pound or so of iron, or less than an ounce of lead. grin

Matrix, I went to Catholic schools. So did my sister. In fact, the majority of schools in my country are Catholic, and 99% of them have uniforms. Said uniforms don't remotely resemble these; in fact, the only time I've seen clothes like that was when they were explicitly used as fetish wear.

Also, if you had a sister, you'd realise how disgusting and wrong incest is.
Do lesbians even count as a fetish? I mean seriously, it's like straight sex, but instead of a man, there's another hot naked woman.
I don't have anything against fetishes per se, but the fetish scene bugs me. A lot of people seem to think there's something wrong with you if your first sexual experience wasn't being anally fisted by a transsexual lesbian dwarf clad entirely in rubber and/or latex in a fetish club in front of an audience of people whose outer appearance has more piercings than skin at the age of 14.
That said, I do have a sword fetish. There's just something awesome about hot girls holding long, sleek rods of sharp metal (link somewhat NSFW).

I also once read a piece which portrayed chess as the sexiest thing in the world. That's right, chess.

Fetishes I explicitly dislike include:
  • Incest
  • Coprophilia/coprophagia
  • Urine play
  • Blood play; this despite my love of swords.

Hey, I have a sister, and I think incest is awesome. I wouldn't want to sleep with my actual sister (I doubt there would be any survivors), but the idea is still cool. wink

Please don't turn the Westermarck Effect, a psychological function, into morality. It is one of my Berserk Buttons.

I can get a chess fetish. It's complicated, domination is involved and it's connected with intellect.

Matrix: OK. I'm sorry, it's just that people talking about how great incest is is a Bersek Button for me.

Not incest, but incest fantasies. There's a difference.

Seconded. evil grin

Is that an actual definition or a personal definition?

 22 Lull The Conqueror, Thu, 16th Apr '09 5:58:23 PM from eternal loli Hell
I'm thinking of the clinical definition, which has to cause significant distress to the person with the fetish or those around them. Otherwise it's just a variation. So yeah, my own definition is a bit stronger, but not that much. I prefer "kink" for fetishes that aren't obsessive simply because it implies minor variation.

Edit: Oh, and you're just daring me to list my turn-ons, aren't you? tongue

Zzzzzzzzzz
That's the actual definition: the fetish object is required. Someone with, say, a shoe fetish, isn't getting off because of the person wearing the shoes, it's the shoes themselves that are doing it.
