What is fetishistic disorder?


Fetishistic disorder involves experiencing intense sexual urges, fantasies, or behaviors related to specific objects or body parts over a period of at least six months. Importantly, it becomes a disorder when these urges cause significant distress or impair someone's ability to function in daily life. For instance, if someone is unable to concentrate at work, spends excessive time focused on their fetish, or if it disrupts their healthy sex life, it might be classified as a disorder 1.

However, if the fetish is causing distress or impairment, it may be considered a disorder.
