This book wasn't what I was expecting at all. Even though the book's subtitle is "Four Journeys..." I still thought it would showcase more people who suffer from/experience fetishes. I feel like the way the author arranged the book made for easy reading but only served to emphasize the unusual-ness of the paraphilia.

It was educational and I did appreciate how it shed these fetishes in a new light or a different angle.

I'm still shocked that the stepfather who did that is still accepted by his boss and current wife. That he isn't a total pariah, admittedly, surprised me.
