Amen, Dan. It all smacks too much of Freud for me.

Some 12 per cent were turned on by underwear, 9 per cent by coats, body fluids and body size, 7 per cent by hair, 5 per cent by muscles, and 4 per cent by genitals and body modifications such as tattooing.

Three per cent cent went for navels, ethnicity and breasts, and 2 per cent for legs, buttocks, mouths, lips and teeth.

9% were turned on by coats and 3% were turned on by breasts? 2% like butts?

What is going on here

I'm assuming that the three percent is people who chose "breasts" even after they were told not to pick a sexual characteristic.

I spend time thinking about why I'm turned on by what I'm turned on by, partly because I'm an introvert and introspection is what I do, but also partly in case it leads me to think of other things I'll enjoy.

I don't consider it a waste.

I don't like feet and I don't like puppies but I like that picture.

Mmarch: I think the point is that lots of people consider reasons and causes because they don't enjoy their fetishes and think it'll lead to a cure. Positive reflection is pretty fun though.

This reminds me of a conversation I had with my first girlfriend, who was older and, needless to say, more experienced than me. She asked if I had any kinks and when I divulged what I thought were my deep, dark desires she said they were so normal they didn't even rate as a fetish. I was relieved and disappointed.

Very cute litte boxer (is it?). Nice pedicure.

You'd think stockings would earn a mentioned here. A quick survey of internet porn suggests tons of demand. And Veronica Monet (former escort turned author) claims that only a handful of her thousands of clients didn't like them.

There's something funky about this survey...

I've never thought of myself as gay, but I really have a thing for muscular guys in spandex tights or shorts and white socks and sneakers. Is this a fetish, or an actual sexual preference?

Okay, would you trust a sex study from the University of Bologna?

Sorry, immature, I know. But I cracked up.

Wait Wait don't tell me covered this weeks ago! and covered all jokes pertaining to it.

Fetishism is when it's a replacement primary site for sexual stimulation, right? And kink is just when you like something besides the contents of "couples porn" too? By now I think we young people invent kinks - or at least dig deep in our psyches and grasp at straws there - because we're bored of our sexual liberation.
