So, I was relistening to episodes at random during work today and this one came up, and it kinda got me thinking about how so many of these fetish sites are incredibly hetero-centric. Obviously not all of them, as F-List alone can attest, but it got me wondering how much of a statistical difference between straight people making/interacting with fetish forums and non-straight (or a combination of) people making/interacting with fetish forums there is.
Like, in my time online in the past 12+ years, I've spent a lot of time in non-hetero online groups/cultures (being LGBT myself) and a lot of the fetishes that've been covered have come up- but it feels like while there are LGBT people with these fetishes, they don't create entire sites devoted to it generally. Like, okay, armpit fetish, sure- that's absolutely a big fetish amongst a lot of gay people (moreso the bear crowd then anyone else), but (as far as i know, this IS the internet) there's not a forum devoted to talking about sexy hairy bear pits.
It's just weird to me, I guess. Food for thought? Probably not.
