A fetish is when a person is sexually aroused by a body part such as feet, an object such as shoes, or a specific situation such as smoking. Fetishes are far more prevalent in males than females and are generally harmless as long as there is consent.
Fetishes can vary by era, such as bullet bras from the 1950’s that were re-fetishized during the Madonna era of the 1980’s. Fetishes can also be culturally driven as demonstrated in 2009 study that showed the leading fetish for men in Japan is the skin between knee socks and skirt whereas in America, the top fetish is generally considered to be the female foot.
