“Exploring the Meaning of Fetish” – Sept 19

The word “fetish” is used too loosely these days. This workshop was an attempt to define it more precisely. We talked about non-sexual as well as sexual fetish. The participants agreed that Americans make a fetish of their flag and were very interested to learn that section 8 part J of the flag code states: ”The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.”

When we discussed sexual fetishes the participants were very interested in the discovery in 2002 by Dr. Vilayanur S. Ramachandran stated that the region processing sensory input from the feet lies immediately next to the region processing sexual stimulation. This is where foot fetish comes from in my opinion.

A lively discussion followed the presentation.
