Fetishes
Hi CS,
Is it normal to have fetishes?
ie, piercings, spanking, leather, dressing in womans clothing etc.
I'm not familiar with fetishes but have come across some people who excercise them.

What's normal ? It's not usual, in the sense that most people don't generally do it. So long as it doesn't harm anyone, and doesn't involve coercion and activities where someone isn't freelly consenting, it doesn't usually cause problems. Well, cross-dressing can cause complications in public, but not at home.
