Fetish Glossary

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.

Are you a tickler or a ticklee? (Tickle Fetish)

In tickle fetish scenarios, a tickler is a person who performs the tickling whereas a ticklee is the person who is being tickled. Despite my usual dominant nature, I beg to differ when it comes to being part of a tickling tryst. Under those circumstances I much prefer to be the ticklee instead of the tickler.

The Best Tickle Fetish Toys

In some BDSM kits, the feather ticklers that are included aren’t fit for purpose; they supply a bit of relaxing fun for someone who’s on the receiving end but that’s all. If you want to tickle someone properly then a different kind of equipment is worth considering. Real enthusiasts of tickling do without mundane feathers or little pieces of coloured fluff. They know precisely which tickle fetish toys will yield the desired results. In fact, Mother Nature has amply provided us with a wonderful variety of organic options.

The Appeal of Wrinkled Soles (Foot Fetish)

For most people wrinkles are an inevitable, if highly unwelcome, fact of getting older. Our increasingly image-conscious society is governed by the impossibly youthful standards set by popular culture. When it comes to foot fetish, it’s a different story. Some enthusiasts get off on wrinkled soles. As a result of the correct application of expert tickling, the foot can tense up.Toe-curling can follow and the soft sole can ripple prettily as a consequence.

Confessions from My First Professional Pedicure

It was a warm and sticky Saturday afternoon and I began realise that I might’ve made a mistake by not booking a professional pedicure sooner. The reason that my anxiety began to grow was that I had a foot fetish photoshoot arranged for the following day and it was going to focus on my feet. I knew that they’d need to be in peak condition.

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

The Day I Masturbated for Science

“If you ever get a chance to test my orgasm under laboratory conditions, let me know” I told the scientist Pere Estupinyà when I first met him. I had just watched a TV documentary about sex in which a research team had observed and documented the physiological changes that occured to a couple when they had sexual intercourse. It fed my curiosity about my own responses during climax.
