    and that's what I think. But I think Down Syndrome people should be able to have a sex life. Its a difficult one for me.

    But we're talking about an adult with sexual desire. Just because someone's retarded or has brain damage doesn't mean they should be cut out of sex, does it? Should wives of men with Alzheimer's not sleep with their husbands?

    I don't see how they harm anyone. It's kitschy stuff.

    Is a fetish a preference or a compulsion?

    I think that varies from individual to individual. I've known people who have no interest in sex outside their fetishes. I know people who feel empty without it. I also know people who go without for years.

    Not what I meant, precisely.

    Let's take something shocking but easy. Rape.

    Rape can be considered a form of fetish. If someone really gets off on rape, meaning non-consensual sex, at what point does that desire change from choice to compulsion?

    Does that apply to all forms of fetish? From SubDom to Diapers, as long as these things are consensual, can any be called truly "bad"?

    Rape play is a fetish. When it ceases to be between two partners who have an agreement and understanding and the rapist can't help himself, it's a compulsion.

    I think even when there's consent, sometimes people don't really understand the risk behind what they're doing. That IS bad.

    I suppose, then, that if a fetish is properly researched and care is taken to avoid injury, that all fetishes are healthy and just between consenting adults.


    This is far from saying I want to participate in a majority of them. To each his own.

    That sums up my position pretty nicely.

    Well, as I am Jewish by birth then I can safely say that it was really Germans killing Germans many of whom were jewish, homosexuals and most likely both.

    People seem to be forgetting that some people are paid for this. And everyone has a price.

    Would you torture a kitten for the yuan equivalent of a million dollars?

    My bet is if you were an attractive asian female with absolutely no money and were already prostituting yourself for pennies, you might think about it, instead of immediately saying no.

    An observation none the less. The statement seemed too absolute.

    Not everyone has a price. Blanket statement.

    I think if you love another person, you do have a price. I'd kill every cat in the world if it meant feeding my children.

    That would most likely be counter-productive
