International Fetish Day | How to Celebrate

January 21 All day

International Fetish Day

International Fetish Day is a day supporting the BDSM community. This day originated in the United Kingdom as “National Fetish Day”. It was first held on January 21, 2008. This is not just a day about kinky sex. The main purpose of International Fetish Day is to increase awareness and support of the fetish community. Unfortunately, a lot of stigma still surrounds fetish, kink and BDSM. Most importantly, this day was designed to encourage members of the community to be more open about their sexuality.

What is a fetish?

A fetish is sexual fixation on a specific object or act that is absolutely necessary to a person’s sexual gratification. YES YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE A FETISH!  Practicing BDSM and Domination/submission is considered to be a fetish. BDSM is a variety of erotic practices involving dominance and submission, role-playing, restraint, and other interpersonal dynamics. Sometimes, a fetish may not even be sexual.  Fetishes cum in many forms. People often have fetishes regarding men or women in suits or leather, biting or being bitten, shoes, feet, and sploshing (food play.) “Partial-ism” is when the fetish or fixation is on a particular body part, such as feet, hands, ass or breasts.

How to Celebrate National Fetish Day:

  • Wear a piece of purple clothing or jewelry to show support for fetishism.
  • Have some fetish play or exploration with your partner.
  • Purchase a new adult toys or BDSM gear, try something that’s purple.
  • Encourage others in the community to share their fetishes or explorations to find theirs.
  • Read a BDSM or D/s book.
  • Write in your journal about what type of fetish you may want to explore more… DIG DEEP!
