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.

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?

For most people wrinkles are an inevitable, if highly unwelcome, fact of getting older.

Searching for a Sole-Mate

Searching for a Sole-Mate

My soles hare the most sensitive part of my feet by far. They also represent the area that receives the most attention from my foot fans. If I were to accept each and every one of their offers to lick and suck my soles I know for certain that when I tried to stand up, the volume of saliva would send me sliding across the floor.
