I do think there's some sort of external trigger that happens to make someone have sexual attachments to external, independent of natural (read: inborn) sexual desires. Hey, maybe (and often) positive experiences, like enjoying playing cowboys and indians. So, perhaps "mental issue" was a bit of a tough term, but a fetish is not inborn. Homosexual/heterosexuality is naturally-occuring and we see it with lots of animals. Only the "rational animal" can form sexual attachments to non-sexual objects, and no, puppies humping a pillow does not count.

I'm a well educated, professional, confident woman who LOVES hearing certain things in the bedroom and yes I crave it as well. That doesn't mean I'm mentally unstable. It doesn't mean that it's unnatural for me to feel that way. It just means that I like something that's not considered "the norm."

It could be said that homosexuality is unnatural, or that being an FA is unnatural, or like excessively thin women is unnatural. I don't believe it has anything to do with one's mental health.



I agree that mental health is a serious issue and not one to take lightly. But hell, if everything "unnatural" was a basis, we'd all be in the looney bin.
