In this episode of the podcast, M & G get to the other question that was sent to us. This time we are talking about fetishes. How are we defining fetishes? What is the difference between a kink and a fetish? And the uncomfortable nature of unwanted fetishization.

The start of our discussion about unwanted fetishization begins at 26:27 and ends at 37:44.
