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.

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.

The Best Tickle Fetish Toys

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.

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

Fulfilling My Foot Fetish Model Responsibilities

Fulfilling My Foot Fetish Model Responsibilities

Being a foot fetish model is not just about pointing my toes, curving my arches and flaunting my soles. I've discovered that it means much more than that. As time goes on, my responsibilities towards my foot fetish fans only seem to increase. Foot fetishists have needs and they are very articulate when they want to express them. Some of them even make specific requests when it comes to provocative foot imagery that I could explore.
