When it comes to sex, a lot of us keep what gets us hot and bothered under the sheets on the down-low. This is especially true if the stuff that gets our proverbial motors running is, well, specific -- or at least, not on the cover of this month's Cosmo. I'm talking about sexual fetishes, and they are way more common than you think.
With the success of 50 Shades of Grey, the relatively 'secret' world of the fetishist is becoming more and more socially acceptable. But don't feel bad if you're still in the dark when it comes to dishing about the kinkier stuff out there. That's what I'm here for!
A sexual fetish can be described as an object or situation that gives one a sexual thrill. It's a broad definition, and kind of a great one since it is expansive enough to cover the vast gamut of our weird, wonderful, human natures.
Because there are only so many hours in the day, I've put together a list of 8 sexual fetishes you might not know anything about. Some might surprise you, others might be ones of which you are well-aware, you delightfully kinky beasts. We've only scratched the surface here, but hopefully this will give you a taste of what's out there, hidden in plain sight.
What other fetishes should we have added to our list?
