I used to view BDSM as the majority of people being quite far from it does: some terrible harness, rough and sloppy clothes, nazi caps. The word «fetish», if you ask a random person, scares right away, because they think it’s filled with shame, vulgarity and even terror. Fetish to me is something beautiful, sophisticated and elegant.
