Development and Course
Onset during puberty, but fetishes can develop prior to adolescence
Once established, fetishistic disorder tends to have a continuous course that fluctuates in intensity and frequency of urges or behavior
Knowledge and consideration for normative aspects of sexual behavior are important
Helps distinguish disorder from acceptable sexual behavior
Not systematically reported to occur in females.
In clinical samples, fetishistic disorder is nearly exclusively reported in males.
Sexual arousal from use of nonliving objects or specific focus on nongenital body part(s)
at least 6 months
recurrent and intense fantasies, urges, or behaviors
Cause significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other areas of functioning.
Objects not limited to articles of clothing used in cross-dressing (transvestic disorder) or devices designed for genital stimulation (vibrator).
Multisensory experience including:

Armand De Asis, Michael Ricci, Jerry Rivera
Early childhood: object association w/ sexual arousal/gratification
Adolescence: conditioning with masturbation.
poorly develop social skills, isolated, diminished capacity for intimacy
Child victim or observer of inappropriate sexual behaviors learns to imitate, is later reinforced.
Individuals deprived of normal social sexual contacts, seek alternative gratification
Most common: doubts about masculinity
Typical impairments associated with fetishistic disorder include:
Prefer solitary sexual activity
Males with fetishistic disorder may steal and collect fetishistic objects of desire
Have been arrested and charged for nonsexual antisocial behaviors
Not diagnosed when fetish objects are limited to articles of clothing exclusively worm during cross-dressing
Sexual masochism disorder or other paraphilic disorders
Fetishes can co-occur with other paraphilic disorders, especially “sadomachism” and transvestic disorder
Fetishistic behavior without fetishistic disorder
Use of a fetish object for arousal without any associated distress or impairment or other adverse consequence would not meet criteria for fetishistic disorder
