disgusting, or is illegal, or doesn't involve other humans, "go and get
laid" isn't helpful advice...

Well, wait.  Sure, but those whose brains host fetishes are extremely lucky
to be born recently, so that they have the internet.  This allows the
unusual ones to find each other.  There are likely fetishes so rare they
don't even have a name, such as mine.  I have an overpowering fetish, but I
don't actually know what it is that turns me on.  I call it enigmofetish.
How rare is that?  Fortunately I host a second fetish, the very most common
one, the one we usually assume everyone has until we know different, so
until or if I ever figure out what the other one is, I can fall back on the
first one, the old standard.
