A fetish, by definition, is something that *must* be used/in the vicinity in order to achieve sexual arousal.

For example, a person with a foot fetish must have a particular foot before him, or a picture of one present to get aroused and have an orgasm.

Any other things that people simply enjoy having around to get aroused are called "kinks." People with kinks are capable of achieving sexual arousal without the kinky item, but enjoy having it as a bonus.

So my question for those who identify as being in the BDSM community: do you ever get dismayed that people mix these terms up?
