A fetish, the OED tells us, is an irrational and often obsessive reverence for a principle or thing, or in the erotic sense when a non-sexual part of the body, an object or behaviour becomes a focus for sexual desire. Most of the time, when people say they have a fetish all they mean is that they like something, boobs or bums included. But it can go much further than that, through ever stronger levels of desire, right up to a need so powerful that it becomes impossible to achieve orgasm without it, or even to enjoy sexual pleasure any other way. This collection features eight articles covering many of his favourite fetishes, each one the product of years of depraved behaviour.
Why do so many people seem to see only in black and white? I’m referring to relationships and sex, the way the majority take the attitude that you’re either with somebody or you’re not, on or off, and that if you are with someone then to do anything with somebody else is inherently wrong. Okay, if that’s the way you want it then fine. That’s your choice, but really, why? Is it human nature? No. Certainly there are genetic influences on human sexual behaviour but they don’t ensure rigid monogamy. It’s largely a social thing, but does that make it right? Societies vary and they change. Nothing is carved in stone.
