They are Normal. But I don't think they are the "norm".
In other words, I am pretty sure there are more people with fetishes than there are without fetishes.
But I think that only applies to the more rare and outlandish fetishes, like a foot fetish or something.
Everybody has more subtle fetishes. I for one have a black hair and fair skin fetish. You can take the same woman; with dark hair I'll drool over her, with blonde hair I won't even take a second look.
But what draws the line between a fetish and a preference.
If I like to have sex doggy-style, does that mean I have a doggy-style fetish, or just prefer doggy-style?
I guess I should just google "fetish" and get a definition. But I don't want to.
okay okay here it is....wikipedia
or erotic fetishism
is a sexual focus on a nonliving object or nongenital body part.
The object of interest is called the fetish
; the person who has a fetish
for that object is a fetishist
A sexual fetish may be regarded as a non-pathological aid to sexual excitement, or as a mental disorder
if it causes significant psychosocial distress for the person or has detrimental effects on important areas of their life. Sexual arousal
from a particular body part can be further classified as partialism
Ohhhh it's mostly concerned with non-genital body parts!
I have a button nose fetish.
I disagree with pointy noses.
If you have a pointy nose I do not trust you.
And also the flare of the nostrils,
I like big soft prominent nostril flares. Turns me on.
And the way the ears look from behind.
Can't really explain that one.
