“Dear Ms. Mix & Bitch,
I’ve been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now, and couldn’t help but notice that you’re willing to tackle pretty much anything – including fetishes. I don’t like to be tied up and I’m not into feet. I don’t even know if what I’m into is considered a fetish. I like watching films with animals having sex, preferably larger beasts, such as lions or horses. I don’t play around with animals directly (not into beastiality at all). I just really get turned on by those wildlife documentaries. I can get aroused without them, and they don’t interfere with my life, although my girlfriend thinks it’s weird. What do you think?
Signed, Animal Magnetism”
Folks, I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Here it goes…
Well, I guess you bring the term “animal lover” to a whole other level now. So, you want to know if your (literal) love of nature in all its backdoor humping glory is a fetish. The answer is yes and no. Yes, it’s a fetish because you desire something specific and somewhat inanimate to get off. However, I also say no, if you were to go strictly by the DSM-IV guide of what is fetishism – because it doesn’t interfere with your productivity or interpersonal relationships. Plus, you’re not raping Fido – that’s a plus in your favor. Good boy.
Is it weird, like you girlfriend seems to think? Well, sexuality is weird, when you think about it. What turns us on or off is a fairly wide continuum, with few things falling in either direction. So my short answer is – don’t worry about it. Everyone, and I mean everyone, has their own thing that jacks them off harder and faster than anything else going. It’s the nature of the beast. Ha-ha.
Sorry, couldn’t help it. And I guess I should apologize for the mix too – because I am poking some friendly fun at you there too.
