Happy National Fetish Day!

Fetish fetish fetish…  such a misunderstood word.

Fetish is simply a small (or large) obsession with an object – say handcuffs, latex, ropes, or anything that meets your fantasies – or a specific body part – boobs and bums here reign above all, but of course also feet, hands, eyes, tummies and so on. The object of passion is called the fetish; the person who has a fetish for that object is a fetishist.

Rumor has it that Scarlett Johansson for example loves sex-in-the-car, Eva Longoria likes to be tied with a silk scarf, Justin Timberlake is obsessed with having a quickie in between his show, and Russel Brand instead… wait, mmmh… I am gonna let you google that.

And today, it’s International Fetish Day!! Held for the very first time in the UK on 21 January 2008 (the third Friday of the year) and supporting the BDSM community, this day was also designed to encourage members of the community to be more open about their sexuality. 

Did you know that being obsessed with boobs is considered a fetish?

Should you decide to try something different, or make some like-minded friends, or simply get some new ideas. I recommend reading this blog post by Ellie: Guide to BDSM dating.
