I think we should make a note about the original meaning for the word "fetish" — an object that is believed to hold supernatural power.
The very first sentence here— "A sexual fetish (or, more properly, a paraphilia)"— is wrong. A paraphilia is a fetish considered as a mental disorder. "Paraphilia" is at best a small subset of fetish taken too far or gone wrong, and at worst a slander on kinky people; it's certainly not a "more proper" synonym for fetish.
