To each his own: Men and fetishes

Ian Kerner, a sexuality counselor and New York Times best-selling author, blogs about sex on Thursdays on The Chart. Read more from him at his website, GoodInBed.

As a sexuality counselor and author, I’m often asked, “What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever dealt with?”

I wish I could tell them something really juicy, like naked clowns wrestling in Jell-O, for example, but the truth is that most sexual complaints tend to be rather common: sex ruts, mismatched libidos, erectile disorder and premature ejaculation in men, and orgasm problems and painful sex for women.

What people really want to know about are the unusual sexual fetishes of others (also known clinically as paraphilias), which affect a much smaller percentage of people.

Interestingly enough, most of those people happen to be men. That’s not to say that women lack their own unique turn-ons and turn-offs, their kinks and squicks (sexual repulsions), but when it comes to, say, having a favorite fantasy versus having an obsession in which all sexual pleasure is almost exclusively derived from a single object, body part or sex practice, more men seem to fall in the latter category.

In their compelling new book "A Billion Wicked Thoughts," (also discussed in this blog) neuroscientists Ogi Ogas, Ph.D. and Sai Gaddam, Ph.D., analyzed more than a billion Internet searches in order to learn about the differences between male and female sexual preferences, as well as what those differences tell us about how our brains are wired, and why, for example, men are more predisposed to have fetishes:

“The male sexual software is what a computer engineer would call an 'OR gate.' It is instantly aroused by any single cue. The male brain is turned on by deep décolletage or sashaying hips or the whisper of a sultry voice or two Applebee’s waitresses kissing. The female sexual brain is what a computer engineer would call an 'AND gate.' It requires input from multiple cues simultaneously to surpass a combined threshold of activation before arousal occurs. … Though for most men the OR gate can be triggered by any one of a variety of sexual cues, for some men one specific cue is essential. This necessary cue is a fetish.”

Although fetishes have been well-documented since the mid-19th century, and could easily fill an encyclopedia with thousands, if not tens of thousands, of entries (from agalmatophilia to zoophilia), the underlying mechanics of fetishes remain something of a mystery.

And while the American Psychiatry Association recognizes fetishes in its clinical bible, the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders," there’s much professional dissent about how to treat fetishes and whether treatment can even be effective when a fetish is deeply ingrained in a person.

Freud believed (no surprise) that fetishes stem from issues such as a man’s universal fear of castration or his unconscious fear of his mother’s genitals, while many psychologists continue to believe that some sort of “sexual imprinting” must occur in the early childhood of the fetishist for sexual excitement and the fetish object to become so intricately enmeshed.

Today, fetishes are often treated with a combination of psychoanalysis (the search for deep unconscious meaning behind a fetish), cognitive behavior therapy (in which the fetishist’s thoughts are viewed as irrational ones that can be reversed with conscious mindfulness) and/or psychiatry, which seeks to alter the brain chemistry of the fetishist through drugs.

Even in our own expert-forum at Good in Bed, fetishes are a source of speculation. Recently, for example, a young woman complained of her boyfriend’s “freeze fetish” - his sexual propensity for immobility, statues and wax figures.

While her boyfriend didn’t seem to be exclusively turned on by the fetish, she nonetheless was confused and anxious. Our experts weighed in: “Fetishes don’t usually go away, but they can morph a little,” writes Dr. Madeleine Castellanos, author of "A Woman’s Guide to Men and Their Penis Problems."

“If people are disturbed by them, they could explore what the unconscious interpretation of the fetish is for them. Then they can experiment with another representation of that meaning that they can then assign erotic feelings.”

“The best way to treat fetishes is to identify the nonsexual meanings of the fetish and crack the erotic code by identifying what he is looking for unconsciously through the fetish,” adds psychotherapist Dr. Joe Kort. “Perhaps he was afraid of mannequins in retail stores or impressed with them or aroused by them as a child and now they have become part of this arousal template, or maybe he saw a movie or video about this as a child which caused it to become locked into his mind and now is eroticized.  Whatever the case it could be helpful to understand the origins for both of you.”

Luckily, many people who would normally be distressed by a fetish are now finding like-minded peers via the Internet and/or some form of erotic stimulation (such as specialty porn) that caters to their specific interests.

Or they are fortunate enough to have sexual partners who, in the words of columnist Dan Savage, are sexually GGG (“good, giving and game”) and are willing to stretch their definition of the taboo and incorporate their partner’s fetish into their sex-play.

One single woman I know even joked that she’d love to meet a foot fetishist: At this point in her life, a good foot massage sounded better than sex. Perhaps the greatest goal for couples dealing with a partner who has a fetish is to decide how that fetish fits into their relationship.

“If a man is able to have healthy and hot sex with his partner and have his fetish fantasies without her and enjoy them,” asks Kort, "What’s wrong with that?”

I am so sick of the media characterizing men the way they do in such a negative light. We are portrayed in television shows as stupid buffoons.. while women are always the intelligent level headed ones (ohhh please).. Why don't they portray women in the wide variety they come in... from normal to psycho-neurotic-nagging-ocd .... the only show that portrayed women like this was Married with Children...

      You are seeing more and more psycho female teachers molesting students here in Florida... seemingly every day... as women are moving into positions of power... they are increasingly becoming the aggressors... that is fact! I have watched women lean over me hanging their b**bs in my face to try and get me to help them in work... using their wares to try and get their help.. it was PATHETIC.. while other idiots in work would fall all over them to get just a smidgeon of attention... I was embarrassed for these guys that were being played.. and you know what they got.. after she got what she wanted... she just would then return to ignoring them... it was HILARIOUS.. but I digress...

      Enjoy life and stop talking to your imaginary friend. He/She/It won't help you. Remember, "He/She/It helps those who help themselves". Those of us who enjoy a good fetish help ourselves (and others) a good deal more than self absorbed whiners like yourself. Lock yourself in whats left of your mind and leave the rest of us alone. If we choose to "Burn in He!!" that is our choice. Didn't He/She/It give us free will to do so? Why do you think it's your job to "save" us? We don't want your "saviour".
      BTW. I'm Christian. I go to church regularly. I admit freely that although my faith isn't as strong as it was when I was an impressional child, I do believe. Not once have I gone to confessional for my fetish. I have no sin to confess for I do not feel sinful for my actions. I live life and enjoy what I can while I'm here.
      I wish you and all of those of faith who feel it's necessary to "hate" would understand that the greatest sin lies within yourself and your actions.

    I'm kind of confused on why fetishes need to be "treated". I can understand if perhaps it is affecting your love life, but if these are things that please you, why must you be medicated/psychologically modified to like what the rest of humanity deems "normal"? Isn't this the same thing bible thumpers want to do with gay people?

    It appears the word fetish is evolving into something much different that the official definition from years ago.

    It used to mean unnatural attraction to a non body article. It was considered to be so severe that a person could not be aroused without the object in sight or close proximity.

    I can understand if a guy or gal is turned on by the sight of something it might enhance the romance, but if they could NOT get turned on without it that to me is obsession.

    Being turned on by a woman in a great looking dress that shows her long slender legs is not a fetish as I understand it, it is simply a preference of something perfectly normal.

    A woman who is turned on by a healthy guy in a damp tight t shirt seems to me to be very normal indeed. Those to me are not fetishes.

    I knew guys who rolled their eyes with ecstasy when a gorgeous gal from the office walked by wearing a snug sweater in the winter or a silky blouse in the summer. Was that a fetish? I think not, that was simply admitting a gorgeous lady was truly attractive.

    not being able to turn on unless your man is wearing a Luke Skywalker outfit? That indicates a fetish. Getting hotter if your man wears his Luke skywalker outfit? Now that is just a turn on.

    I'm with the guys who liked the sweater and silky blouse. We are the ones who find the female human form to be delightful and absolutely attractive. And that my friends does not appear to be a fetish.

      Absolutely agree with you morgan painter. Unfortunately the term "fetish" doesn't imply a "Need" so much as what can socially be considered a "Perverse Desire" now. As we all know, we are all sheep who need social acceptance.

      I find the saddest part that our "Desires", which at one point was a private matter between consenting adults in a private setting, is now subject to public opinion. This is mostly due to everyones desire for their "15 minutes of fame" and social media. There are so many ways to spread your "fetishes" to the masses it is now mainstream. Kids look at you odd when you say you don't have a Spacebook or Myface account.

      I miss the old days when everyone minded their own business and allowed others to live as they wished. Or is/was that time just a myth?

      No, the time where everyone minded their own business and allowed others to live as they wished has unfortunately never existed. Sadly, as intolerant as people seem today, this is probably one of the most tolerant periods in history.
      Reference the numerous individuals burnt at the stake for witchcraft, heresy, adultery in the US and UK all the way through the late 1700s. Look up the history of sodomy/buggery laws in the U.S. and U.K. (present in the US through 2002!!) The list goes on.

    This is bit one-sided, as women have many fetishes. We just are not as verbal about them, as it seems a bit more socially unacceptable for women to have naughty fetishes. I've also noticed that I'm (a woman) more willing to play along with a man's fetish, but many men get that "oh, you're too weird" if I bring up my fetishes. This is a shame for women. Either we have to go completely to fetish-land and take being a sadist and drag a man by a leash to be accepted by a group of piers that do the same or we're pretty much alone in our fetishes.

    I love women who wear pantyhose. Nothing beats a short skirt and hose! And heels ofcourse.

      You got that right, there is nothing that can beat a woman in a skirt with hose and heels. Except if she has a garter belt on also.
