International Fetish Day

International Fetish Day is an international annual holiday dedicated to fetishes. The main purpose of the holiday is to raise public awareness about the practice of B.D.S.M., which has become increasingly popular in recent years. Many consider this a perverted form of sexual contact, but experts in the field of sexology note such a fetish as the highest form of trust between two partners.


The history of the International Fetish Day begins in 2009, when it was celebrated for the first time. Its appearance is associated with a law that banned extreme pornography (which came into force on January 26 of the same year).

According to the position of many people who are fond of fetishes, the law was aimed not only at the eradication of prohibited products of the porn industry, but also prohibited sadomasochism as such, regardless of the context.

During the celebration, various peaceful actions and rallies are held in support of fetishes and the adoption of B.D.S.M. It should be noted that this holiday is only appropriate for people who support it. If you do not attribute yourself to such a movement or an ardent opponent, then simply skip this date for yourself.

Interesting facts

  • Fetishes can be either sexual or non-sexual in nature. At the same time, their main feature is the ability to give pleasure at a sexual or moral and ethical level.
  • According to sexologists, the practice of B.D.S.M. allows you to achieve the highest level of pleasure, as well as add spice to relationships.
