Hand fetishism

Hand fetishism [1] (or Hand partialism) is the sexual fetish for hands. This may include the sexual attraction to a specific area such as the fingers, palm or nails, or the attraction to a specific action performed by the hands; which may otherwise be considered non-sexual - such as washing or drying dishes. This fetish may manifest itself as a desire to experience physical interaction, or as a source of sexual fantasy.

Footsies, playing footsies or footsie is a practice in which people use their feet to play with each other's feet. This generally involves under a table and rubbing their feet, particuarly the soles of the feet, against their partners' feet, up their partner's legs, and sometimes in their partner's groin (see footjob). Participants often remove their shoes and play barefoot, however it can also be played in socks, or wearing shoes.

Food play

Food play is a form of sexual fetishism in which participants are aroused by erotic situations involving food. Some foods and herbs themselves are purported to cause sexual arousal in and of themselves. Food play overlaps with other fetishes, including wet and messy fetishism, feederism, Nyotaimori, and Wakamezake. It is differentiated from Vorarephilia, aka "Vore," in that food play fetishizes food while vore fetishizes the act of eating.

Fetish model

A fetish model is a model who wears fetish clothing and/or devices. Many such models wear what is termed as fetish fashions which are clothing styles that incorporate extreme elements designed to elicit a strong emotional reaction or desire on the part of the watcher. Such clothing range from exotic stylized bathing suits to extreme costuming including body armor and sci-fi fantasy suits.

Fetish magazine

A fetish magazine is a type of magazine originating in the 1960s which is devoted to sexual fetishism. The content is generally aimed at being erotic rather than pornographic. Much of the content in fetish magazines is baffling to people who do not share the particular fetishes discussed and depicted.

Fetish club

A fetish club is a nightclub, bar or other entertainment venue which caters to clientele interested in some of (but not necessarily all) fetish fashion, bondage, dominance/submission, and/or sadism and masochism (For short, BDSM).
