So there’s a pick-your-fetish meme floating around; I got it via timestheyare. Cut for bigness. Strangely, the list omits many things it shouldn’t, so I’ve taken the liberty of adding a whole bunch of stuff on the end.
24/7 (Total Power Exchange)?
I used to think this was totally not my schtick. That was before I met dayo. The dynamic of our relationship seems to work that way, though. Who knew?
Abasiophilia (Casts, Braces, Wheelchairs)?
Not my thing.
Also not my thing.
Adult Baby/AB Parent?
So not my thing that it and my thing are not even in the same zip code.
Algolagnia (Pleasure derived from physical pain)?
Pain is all about context. In the right context, oh, yes. I like receiving it, and I really get off on giving it.
Amputee Fetishism (Amputation/Deformity)?
Doesn’t do it for me. I once had someone offer me $40,000 if I’d let him cut off one of my fingers. I said no.
Giving: It’s someting I’ll do if my partner is really into it, but it’s not something I seek out.
Receiving: Oh, yes, please. I’m a total anal slut. Strap-on ahoy!
Arse (Ass Play, Worship)?
Asphyxiaphilia (Breath Play, Choking)?
Damn dangerous this is. As much as I like sex–and believe me, I like sex more than the average Joe–I like living more.
Seriously. I like living a lot. more. If someone walked up to me and said “You have a choice: live for 200 years as a sexless eunuch, or I’ll splatter your brains all over the sidewalk,” I’d take the sexless eunuch in a heartbeat. Sex that might get me off and might also kill me? I’ll pass.
I don’t even find them interesting in a non-erotic context. (Those balloon animals they make at kids’ birthday parties? Lame.)
Again, one of those things that’s totally not my speed.
Beating (Flogs, Whips, Canes, etc.)?
Oh, dear God, yes.
Blood (Drawing Blood, Cutting, etc.)?
Another one of those things I didn’t think would be interesting until I met the right partner. Now? Knife play is fun.
I don’t care one way or the other. When I’m in bed with someone, it ain’t her hair follicles, on her head or anywhere else, I’m payin’ attention to, if you get my drift.
Body Modification (Tattoos, Branding, Piercings, etc.)?
I’ve seen some that are really sexy, and some that are not terribly interesting at all.
Bondage (Blind folds, Gags, Restraints)?
Oh, yes. I mean, really, do you have to ask?
Breast/Nipple Torture, Clamps, etc.
Giving: Oh, yes. Oh, yes, indeed. This REALLY gets me hot.
Receiving: Usually one of the fastest ways to arouse me.
I’ve had partners who are really into it. Not really my thing; I’m way too sensitive to heat (receiving is painful in a not-fun kind of way), and I don’t get anything out of doing it to someone else.
They are PRETTY! And they are STRONG! And they MAKE NOISE when she STRUGGLES! What’s not to love? 🙂
Chastity play sounds like it could be hella fun, though the gear is usually quite expensive and it’s one of those things that’s more easily done when you live with a partner.
Chinese Balls/Ben Wa Balls/Anal Beads?
Yes, yes, and yes, in that order.
Cling Film/Plastic Wrap?
Mmm-hmm. I have some very fond memories of Shelly and a roll of brightly colored palette wrap. Got pictures, too, now that I think of it.
Got pictures of most of the things on this list, now that I think of it more.
Cock and Ball Torture, Clamps, etc.?
Haven’t experimented with it. I would be open to it with a partner who was into it.
Collar and Lead/Leash?
Dear God yes.
Something I haven’t experimented with but I am really interested in trying. Perhas next time I’m in Chicago, in fact.
Coprophilia (Shit Play/Scat)?
Costumes (Period, Fetish, etc.)?
Depends. It’s not the costumes themselves that do it for me, but in the context of the right role-play scenario, oh yes. Come here, little schoolgirl. Come over here!
Meh. Never been interested in it.
Cupping (Suction of the Skin)?
This is fun in the right situation, but not really fun on its own.
Dacryphilia (Arousal from Tears)?
Also contextual. With the right partner, in the right psychological environment, when I know she’s getting something out of it, yes. It’s one of those things where if it doesn’t work for her, it doesn’t work for me.
Defilement (Seeing a partner dirty or wet)?
Mmm, if I could express in words how hot this gets me, your monitor would catch fire.
Dildos (Hand-held & Strap-ons)?
Yes, yes, yes.
Medical role-play is a lot of fun, and you get to use scary-looking devices! Me <3 scary-looking devices. Though Mad Scientist and Innocent Victim (or perhaps Mad Scientist, Innocent Victim, and Submissive Lab Assistant) does it for me better than doctor and nurse. Domination? Yes. Oh, yes. Ears? As a fetishistic body part? No. Fun to bite? Yes. Electrotorture (EMS TENS units)? Lots of fun, and also, scary-looking devices! Emetophilia (Vomit, Regurgitation)? No. Also non-negotiable. Erotic Photography? Have you seen my Web sites? Any of them?
Exhibitionism/Sex In Public?
I really, really, really dig this. As in, a lot. Preferably at play parties or sex clubs; I’m not into having an audience that doesn’t want to watch.
Meh. Fun as part of sensation play, but more of an appetizer than the main course, y’know?
Pyrophilia (Fire Play)?
Yes. I like it a lot, though I don’t know enough about it to do it unsupervised. And who would be foolish enough to give me matches, anyway?
Quite possibly one of the most fun things to do on a Friday night yet invented by man.
Remember the “defilement” part up there? You’re talking to a man who once modified a silicone dildo so as to make it squirt whipped cream at high pressure.
Very spendy, but hella cool. Oh, the things the Mad Scientist could do with a fucking machine…
Had a college roommate who was a furry. Not my cuppa.
In the right context, with the right people…oh, my, yes.
Meh. We have enough of that going on in the Federal government as it is.
Guns (Gun Play, Worship)?
I dig guns. Just not for sex.
Yes! You mean there’s someone who would answer “no” to this??!
Oh, yes. And again with the MAKES NOISES when she STRUGGLES.
Love the look. Hate the price.
Meh. A woman in high heels always looks slightly awkward and off-balance to me. What’s the point?
Oh, yes. I have a big-time humiliation fetish, yes I do.
Infantilism (Pacifiers/Bottles, etc.)?
Oooh. Combine this with Mad Scientist and fisting and you’ve got the makings of a weekend that cannot be beat.
For psychological value, or as part of humiliation play, yes. On its own, meh.
Knives (Razors, Swords, other blades)?
Dear God yes. The Mad Scientist needs to cut off the Innocent Victim’s clothing somehow, right? Plus, OMG sensation!
I really like the look of leather.
Making Home “Movies”?
And still pictures, and putting them on the Intarwebs…
Masks (Erotic/Gas Masks, etc.)?
I like the look, and in the right context it looks like fun, but I don’t eroticize the masks themselves.
Yep. I’m a sexual sadist and a sexual masochist.
Didn’t we cover that in the “24/7” part?
Masturbation (Mutual or Forced)?
Yep! What’s with the “or”? Embrace the power of “and”!
Scarier looking, the better. The Mad Scientist wouldn’t really be a Mad Scientist without his Well-Equipped Secret Laboratory!
Menstruation (Sex During, Eating, etc.)?
Meh. Had a partner whose cramps were usually helped by a strong orgasm or two.
Contextual. Secret Police Interrogator and Captive Member of the Resistance is a fun game to play, but it’s the role-play scenario not the uniforms, that do it for me.
Not my speed.
Necrophilia (Death, Corpses)?
So many things you can do to them, oh yessss, my precioussss, so many things.
Oh, yes. In so many different contexts.
Hasn’t this one been covered as well?
This list is repetitious.
Play Piercing/Needle Play?
Yes. There are some really intense things you can do with this. Acupuncture needles are a lot of fun.
Plushophilia (Stuffed animals, Plushies)?
On its own? No. As a form of humiliation play? You bet.
Podophilia (Foot Fetish)?
Of all the various fetishes and kinks out there, this is one I just don’t get. What’s the deal with feet? I mean, they’re nice and all, and a foot massage is one of life’s little joys, but fetishizing feet? Color me baffled.
Covered this one already, too. You bet! D/s is such fun.
I don’t want kids. I have never wanted kids. When i was growing up, my parents kept telling me nonsense like “Some day you’ll want kids of your own.” Nope, nope, nope.
Don’t want kids, don’t want a partner who’s pregnant.
Bad girl! Go to my room!
The Rack/Medieval Devices?
Religious (Nunplay, Priestplay)?
Retifism (Shoes or Boots)?
Um…if this question hasn’t been answered already, time to hang it up.
I like the aesthetic.
Come here! I am going to HURT YOU, and it will GET ME OFF, oh yes it will. Now, you can scream if you want to…
Something I’ve thought about but never explored.
Statuephilia (Mannequins, Dolls, etc.)?
Talking Dirty/Verbal Humiliation/Abuse?
You are a very, very dirty slut, and now I’m going to treat you like one. But first, I want to hear you say it!
Meh. I’ve actually been tickled to orgasm, but it’s not something I especially care one way or the other about.
As a fetish? No.
Toys (Buttplugs, Vibrators, etc.)?
Let me show you my collection!
Covered this one already.
Urolagnia (Water Sports/Urine)?
Not my thing.
Depends on the definition of “violence” and “injury,” I suppose. Are bruises and welts “injuries”?
If the people are into it, sure.
Oh, yes. Winner get ownership of the loser’s body. And just for the record, I used to wrestle competitively, and I always play to win.
There are two classes of things in the world: “things that are sexy” and “things that are not sexy.” Zombies occupy an entire range within the set of things which are not sexy. In fact, short of George W. Bush in a pink tutu, it’s hard to imagine anyting that is less sexy (or more unsexy) than a zombie.
And now for things that should have been on the list but aren’t:
Group sex? (In contexts other than gang bangs)
Animalism (puppy play, pony play)?
Meh. Perhaps in the right context with the right partner I could make it work for me.
Oh, yes. Great fun.
For me: Definitely not. This is a non-negotiable hard limit.
For a partner: Possibly. In the right context, with the right person, i can see this being hella hot.
Yes. Definitely yes. I need to learn more about doing it. I actually have a place in the new apartment where I can do it, in fact.
Meh. Not my thing.
Meh. I suppose it might work for me, if my partner was really, really into it, maybe.
This is a lot of fun. I like the way my partners look in a corset, and it can be a nice, subtle form of control in public.
Not my thing.
I have met very few men into this who aren’t total dicks. It has poisoned my perception of the entire genre of D/s, I’m afraid.
Oh, my God, yes. Giving or receiving. Yes, yes, yes. Such fun should not be had by mere mortals.
Surprising they list cock and ball torture but not cunt torture. Yes.
Looks like fun. I’ve never experimented with it, but I think it’d be fun to try.
If I had the setup to do it safely, and had a partner who was into it, I think it could be fun.
Oh, yes. Something else I may explore next time I’m in Chicago.
I think that it might be interesting with a partner who really got off from it, but it’s not something that I’ve ever sought out.
Yes! Endless fun. Fun of the sort that is probably illegal in fifteen states.
Ow. Dear God. I think I’ll pass.
In the right context, with a partner who’s really into it, this is just absolutely amazingly hot.
Hell yes. Yes, yes, yes. I’ve written tutorials on the subject!
Again, hell yes. This really gets my motor going, and gets some of my partners’ motors going, too.
I’m sure there’s still more that I’ve left out. The human sexual experience is vast.
