Fun Fetish Facts
A pair of high heels may be the world's favorite fetish, according to the largest ever study of sexual kinks. Asked to name their favorite body parts, sexually speaking, 47 percent of those asked named feet and toes; where objects related to the body were concerned, footwear polled 64 percent. Oddly enough, other objects that people were turned on by included hearing aids and pacemakers.
About 90 percent of people often think about someone else during sex with their partners, according to a survey of sexual fantasies. As well as imagining famous faces, around a third of respondents said they fantasized about sex with a work colleague or a friend, and a quarter with a friend's partner. A study from the University of Montreal in 2007 found that women were more likely than men to visualize current or past partners (as well as celebrities) in their erotic imaginings. Men, by contrast, veered towards imaginary people.
Not everyone is turned on by feet. The Australian neurologist and existential therapist, Viktor Frankl, once noted a case of a man whose sexual fetish involved frogs and glue (at the same time).
Fifty-eight percent of respondents in a global survey by the condom manufacturer Durex said that they deemed it acceptable for products aimed at improving sex lives to be available in mainstream stores.
In a different survey conducted by Durex, 58 percent said that they regularly fantasize about sex with a regular partner. Other findings: 35 percent of men fantasize about sex with two women; and 19 percent like to be watched. The other widely shared fetish is BDSM which stands for Bondage, Discipline and Sadomasochism.
