What is a Fetish and How Can Wet Lube Help?
January 17th is National Fetish Day. In recognition and celebration of fetishes everywhere, we’d like to take a moment to discuss what the term fetish means, and how Wet® Personal Lubricants can help enhance exploration of your fetishes!
According to sexologists Carol Queen, Ph.D., and Shar Rednour, in their book The Sex & Pleasure Book: Good Vibrations Guide to Great Sex for Everyone, a fetish is defined as, “any kind of sexy response that isn’t to another whole person…or an item or material to which you have a strong erotic response.” What that means is that a fetish is not necessarily a sexual act, rather it’s an attraction to physical objects, human appearances, or situations that makes a person sexually aroused.
So how can a Wet Personal Lubricant help? Here are examples of three common fetishes and tips for using Wet to get the most of your fetish.
1. Latex Fetishism
Something about the feeling of being bound, the visual appeal of someone in the garments, or even the scent of rubber gets peoples juices flowing. If you’ve ever worn latex or PVC, you know how difficult it is to put on and maintain. Wet® Platinum® Premium Lubricant may be used on the inside of garments to help you slip into them. It may also be used on the outside of the garment to condition latex or PVC and keep it in pristine condition. Wet Platinum never dries out so a small amount lasts for a long time, allowing you to easily stay dressed for pleasure.
If you fantasize about licking your partner’s feet and sucking their toes, you have a foot fetish. If you are hesitant to try the toe sucking and foot licking because of the way feet might taste or smell, we highly recommend trying one of our Wet® Flavored™ Gel Lubricants. Our most popular flavor is Kiwi Strawberry. It tastes so good that a guy has sent us a video of himself putting it on his morning toast. So put your best foot forward and tell your partner you’d like to turn their feet into a sensual treat …You’ll love it!
If butts are your thing, Wet® Nuru™ Erotic Body-on-Body Massage Gel is a must have. Nuru massage, which originated in Japan, requires you to cover each other long-lasting, slippery, water-based Wet Nuru Gel, which allow you to glide your entire body over every square inch of that beautiful behind. Watch our instructional Wet Nuru Massage Video for tips on how to use Wet Nuru. It’s a fantasy come true.
*Remember: you have a right to communicate openly with your partner about what your sexual needs, desires and fetishes are. If you are having difficulty opening a dialogue, click here for helpful first steps.
