...in the hope that there are some ladies with fetishes who read Slog and would be willing to call bullshit on this girl's prof in the comments thread:
I am a 20-year-old lesbian woman living in a large east coast city. I am in a human sexuality class and my teacher says that using the strictest definition of fetish—DSM definition—only men can have fetishes. He also says in general male sexuality is much more rigid than female sexuality. I agree with that as a general statement but I just don't think he can make a statement like that that NO WOMEN EVER have fetishes. Help me prove my professor wrong.
Setting the DSM aside for a second—and I'm pretty sure her prof is wrong about that—are there any ladies with fetishes out there who care to weigh in?
