I was scared for a second there. I had adopted the page Sexuality to fix all disambiguation. I had checked it a few minutes ago and I see about 100 articles that linked there. I freaked out for a second, because I had just gone through and fixed all of the disambiguation the other day. Hopefully fixing the template got rid of all of the articles.

However, I am having a problem... There are 6 articles that keep showing up on the "Pages that link to Sexuality" page. I can not seem to find these links. If anyone could help, that would be greatly appreciated. They are:
I'm not sure what is going on, but the count has dropped to only three now, Vampire fetish, Hand fetishism and Jock sniffing. Mynameisnotpj (talk) 21:54, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
I had a similar situation a while ago... it's probably the system catching-up. I'm lost for any other explanation. Redblueball (talk) 17:40, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

See the references at the bottom of the Asian fetishism article; they may provide answers to your doubts. In the meantime please refrain from removing the link from the template. Redblueball (talk) 16:53, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

There is a Talk:Asian fetish#Request for Comment and a Talk:Asian fetish#Proposal which may benefit from attention from interested and informed editors. The latter concerns the sexual fetish template and category. Please comment there if you wish to participate. Шизомби (talk) 04:28, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Fetish vs. paraphilia[edit]

Hmmm... probably should've gone here first before reverting. Oh well. Just to note right off the back, just because something is referred to as xxxphilia does not make it automatically a paraphilia.

Template a mess[edit]

This template is a mess. Sexual fetishism is defined as the "sexual arousal a person receives from a physical object"; this template contains many sexual activities that don't relate to objects, such as body parts (this is partialism). Should be completely redone IMO. Handcuffed (talk) 07:11, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

In the strict sense, you are completely correct. For the purpose of how fetishism is described on most of these pages, as well as the common English usage, the way it currently is is fine. These desires are named "fetishes" by the overwhelming majority of English speakers. Saying "Foot-fetish" is a common phrase, everyone knows what you mean. Only people educated on the origins of the word "Fetish" will acknowledge its original (Object-related) origin, as well as it's more medical definition. --Anonymous 6/13/2012 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:59, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 13 June 2012[edit]

In the template box at the bottom of fetish related articles I have noticed there is the addition of "Second Skin" in 2 catagories(Clothing,Objects). The page for Spandex Fetishism exactly describes second skin fetishism. They are not different concepts as a result. The image for that page even is of a Zentai suit.

Recommendation: Consider MERGING "Spandex fetishism" and the non-existant "Second Skin" pages since they both are the same thing. There doesn't need to be both. (talk) 20:54, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

I've removed "Second skin" from the template because the article was deleted in February. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 21:32, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
