A sexual fetish is a sexual interest or sexual excitement in response to non-living objects, secretions or body parts. As long as two adults have agreed to what they want to do during sex with their partners. It’s for nothing else but just to ensure that we’re all getting the sexual pleasure we need for ourselves. There are different types of fetishes a person can choose from, like feet, body features or clothes. Anything you could imagine to turn you on that could be your fetish.
A sexual fetish is not a disorder, it is what makes you become sexually aroused, get an erection and have an orgasm. Whether you are alone or with a partner is not a problem as long as it works for you. Fetishes start to be a problem if it causes significant psychosocial distress for the person or forcing your partner to do things she/he does not want to do.
What is Sexual Fetish?
The fact of getting sexual pleasure from a particular object or body part is called sexual fetish. Someone with a fetish might have sex or masturbate while they rub, smell, hold, look or taste the object. They might even ask their partner to wear it or use it during sex. People have different desires sexually, some fetishes can be harmless and some you can experience little pain.
Fetish is different from kink, a kink is like having an interest in something like role play or bondage to spice things in your bedroom. It is not weird to have a fetish, almost everyone has a fetish just that people don’t openly talk about it.
When Are Fetishes a Problem?
When fetishes start to interferes with your social functioning or when sexual arousal is impossible without the fetish object. Even when your partner does not like your fetish it becomes a problem to the both of you, because not everyone gets pleasure. Fetishistic disorder is a condition in which there is persistent and repetitive use of or dependence on non-living objects or specific focus on a body part to reach sexual arousal. Make sure that you’re on the same page with your partner about your fetish and have an agreement with him/her, and avoid any problems that you may face. Don’t force your partner to do something she/ he does not want.
Feel free to explore your fetish, you are not alone and it’s not weird. Get professional help if you need it because it might help you understand your fetish. You can do it alone or together with your partner to improve your sex life.
