Venus O'Hara's Fetish GlossaryThe word fetish derives from 15th century Portuguese feitiço, which meant charm or spell. A fetish is an object believed to have supernatural powers, or in particular, a man-made object that has power over others. Essentially, fetishism is the attribution of inherent value or powers to an object. The terms "erotic fetish" and "sexual fetish" were first introduced by the French psychologist Alfred Binet in the 1940s. Today a “fetish” is an object, non-reproductive body part or action whose presence or existence causes excitement and/or arousal in an individual. An object might be latex or heels, a non-sexual body part could be legs or feet and tickling or smoking are examples of actions. “Fetish” is also used as an adjective that relates to anything connected to the world of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Domination, Submission, Sadomasochism) such as fetish wear or fetish clubs.

Enter the MAZE – Vegan Leather by Bijoux Indiscrets

Can you be spiritual and kinky? The MAZE collection from Bijoux indiscrets allows me to be just that. “Exciting paths that unveil secret directions with one true end: finding your true self”  the packaging reads. This philosophy certainly conforms with my current spiritual journey. I’m surrendering to the universe and seeing where it chooses to take me. It will lead me, hopefully, into the arms of someone who is as blissed-out and kinky as I am.

High Heel Fetish

High Heel Fetish

I have always envied women who are able to walk easily and elegantly in high heels without falling over. Sadly, I do not have as much luck as they do. It is very difficult for me to find shoes that combine sex appeal with comfort. The few times that I have gone out wearing high heels have ended up the same way and bruises are something that are never thought of as sexy. Because of my clumsiness, I only wear heels for photo sessions and sex sessions.

Fetishism without Photoshop

Fetishism without Photoshop

It can take a lot of hard work to create a photo. A professional photo-shoot requires the skills of the model, the photographer, stylists, hairdressers and make-up artists. Then, afterwards, it's taken for granted that the expertise of the retouchers will be needed to add more layers. I direct myself during my own sessions and I'd prefer to avoid adding those extra layers if I can help it. My intention is to reflect reality instead.

Shoe Dangling Fetish

Shoe Dangling Fetish

Shoe dangling can appeal to shoe fetishists, foot fetishists or both at the same time. I do wonder if the thrill that shoe dangling fetishists experience when a woman dangles her high heel shoes is the same If her balancing ability isn't up to scratch, and the shoe falls to the ground suddenly and unintentionally, is it a turn on? Perhaps it's the anticipation of the shoe dropping, and not the event itself, that causes so much arousal?

Exploring New Fetishes

Exploring New Fetishes

Even though it was the same model, shot in the same setting by the same photographer, the end result was so different to anything we'd done before. Together we created a 'voyeur' set. Our intention was to capture the essence of many fetishes. They include: Unaji (nape fetish), upskirt fetish, hosiery fetish, downblouse fetish, foot fetish, bra fetish and dangling heel fetish and more.

Holey Hosiery!

Holey Hosiery!

Putting hosiery on properly requires delicacy and patience. Special care must always be taken with the thin material to avoid it ripping open accidently. There are things you can do to limit the possibility of damage, of course. Sometimes, no matter how careful you are, those precautions let you down. Getting a ladder in your tights is never less than frustrating
