Do I Have A Fetish? Fun Fetish Test

There's nothing more fun or confidence boosting than starting out an article with a definition, so let's do that first:

Fetish - An object or bodily part whose real or fantasied presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification and that is an object of fixation to the extent that it may interfere with complete sexual expression

(Taken from the Merriam-Webster Online dictionary)

Now when expressed this way, a fetish really doesn't seem like fun at all, instead of being something one might refer to as 'fun', it's more like a sexual ball and chain, an extra set of conditions that must be met in order to experience sexual pleasure.

Fortunately, the term is wildly misused in many cases. In many instances, sexual kinks or predilections referred to as fetishes aren't really fetishes at all. If you find wearing stockings hot, but are still more than capable of getting it on without wearing stockings, then you really have more of a strong preference (often referred to as a kink) than a fetish.

The term 'fetish' is also commonly used in connection with activities, not just objects, as the definition describes. For instance, spanking is a common 'fetish' that many engage in to one extent or another, be it in the form of a playful love tap whilst walking past a partner, or in the context of a BDSM 'scene' where the spankee is tied to a bench and flogged with a rubber flogger.

If you're a little kinky, you might just be wondering if maybe you have a fetish. Take this fun fetish test to see if you might have a fetish, results are at the bottom of the page.

(Just tally the number of "yes" answers to get your score)

Innocent Angel

1-5 YES - You probably don't have a fetish.. Unless it's simply a fetish for taking online tests. Be careful of them, they are addictive. They can rob your mind and soul within days if you allow them to suck you into their world of pseudo self exploration.

Naughty One

5-10 - Naughty One! Aren't you the kinky little thing. Your kink is still low to moderate however, so enjoy it, you're in no danger of becoming a hardcore fetishist just yet.

Fetish Apprentice

10-15 - Fetish Apprentice! Aren't you the fetishy little thing. You may be approaching fetish status, but you're keeping it in check, possibly just barely. Remember that there is life outside of kink once in a while and you will be fine.

Fetish Diva

15-20 - Fetish Diva! You probably have a fetish. This may cause you to have a limited sexuality, but an intense one. Do try to ensure that it does not rule your life however. Having a fixation on anything to the detriment of the rest of your life is not a good thing, even if it does feel good, oh so good, at the time.

(Disclaimer: This should not replace an expert's opinion or just plain old fashioned common sense. Anyone taking this test too seriously will be hunted down and whipped mercilessly. But you'd like that, wouldn't you? Naughty boy/boi/girl/gurl.)

WOW....What a boring esistance I have had. I couldn't answer YES to any one of the questions. Maybe I need to stop taking these tests as they reveal too much about what I am not. Luv the test! Great fun!

I wouldn't worry about it too much Ashes :) There's more to life than intense sexual fixations on apparently unrelated objects. Taking meaningless tests on the other hand... well, life is all about that :)
