Somewhere along the line, "unnatural" got confused with "morally wrong." Human beings are walking contradictions.
Maybe there's "something unnatural" about having strange sexual turn-ons -- but I agree with Papa Freud: that's because there's something very unnatural about modern industrial civilization. Raise a gregarious savannah primate in an American commuter suburb and it's bound to get all sorts of weird ideas about sex .

But I don't like thinking of it as "unnatural," because, as you said, that word has bad connotations. I try to think of it as "unexpected... and interesting"
