I don't even like saying related words in real life ("Medusa", "Turn to stone", "Petrified") in conversations where they're relevant.

I thought I was the only one who did that...  Sad

I totally do the same (in both English and Spanish). I feel "uncomfortable" when someone uses "petrification related" terms in casual conversation. I feel as if I was going to "get caught" and they were going to discover my fetish.

It's a very weird sensation.  Cry

I love playing games and watching anime. I have a mother and sister who are equally fond of this. I was very uncomfortable watching the Mai Otome OVA series together with them, or playing the first Grandia game with my mom watching and discussing the story with my sister afterwards.

I STILL have to play Final Fantasy XIII for the first time. Everyone (friends, family) is pressuring me to do so because they want my opinion on this game about the gameplay...and the story.
You can guess what it is that is holding me back...
It's pretty pathetic actually.  Sad

Wow, I'm glad I brought it up, I really thought I was the odd man out in that respect XD

It's actually part of why I kind of prefer for ASFR to appear in things that don't directly intersect with my other interests.  If it happens in Dragon's Dogma, I know I'll never have to discuss it in real life with anybody because it's not a game anybody I know has any interest in.  When it happens in Zelda, however, suddenly things just feel weird.

FFXIII gets a lot of mixed opinions(which I understand, as a writer, I have to say...ugh, the writing and characters are awful), so I understand the pressure of being around your family when it's ASFR-moment seen in the ending appears and them being eager for you to see it.

I'm also glad you brought it up, Stonelad, because I too thought I was the weirdo here, and that may be the same for others reading this. For me it's everything ASFR-related and also for my other fetishes with one exception, and that exception leads me to a question of my own:

I'm half of the G9comics duo and we make corruption fetish-themed comics. I have been open to most of my friends about this because, for some reason, I find it easier to talk about this. Much easier than any of the other stuff even though it's just another specific "weird" fetish.
So I have been wondering if it maybe has to do with me seeing it as "work": something that I make for others and thus feels more distant to myself. Of course, that is not the case at all, but maybe I'm able to justify or rationalize it this way, tricking myself to let my barrier down this way.
My question to you guys is if it works for you that way too. Many of us here are also producers instead of just consumers, either by writing or drawing/rendering (and people like Drake even does both). Does it make a difference for you if you're somehow involved with producing material to make it easier to talk about the fetish itself because you can look at it from a "professional" point of view instead of just seeing it as your own hidden pleasure that you only keep for yourself?

@Crystalline
I didn't have good expectations for the game anyway, seeing as I'm among the FF-fans who are sad to see the series go further and further away from their roots. Still, under normal circumstances, I'd have given the game a try to at least experience it for myself, so it's almost becoming suspicious I still haven't done so.
And when I finally do so, everyone will be all over me to finally hear my opinion. My great plan has backfired!  Cry

If anything, the fact that I have written stories and commissioned art related to asfr makes me even more unlikely to talk about it in real life.  If I have helped to produce the stuff I can't have the excuse of it just being a casual interest or something, it makes it clear it means a lot to me.

I am very nervous about anyone in real life finding out about my interests, even if I imagine most people would likely not care too much.  It's just about privacy, more than anything.

Yeah, what mangoman said.  By being an observer, it can be that weird thing you kind of like.  By producing material, it's clear you enjoy it so much you'll actually make the effort to feed your desires.

For me, I worry that people wouldn't be able to separate my work on this particular fetish stuff with anything I produce that is unrelated.  What I mean by that is that, no matter how creative or new or interesting you are trying to be in terms of story stuff, basically the kinds of stories you tell are going to be limited.  Certain characters always need to make cliched decisions, certain stereotypes always need to be present.  I worry that if people knew about this they'd judge ALL my work based on just what I do here.

That is to say, I don't look down on fetish work; its just very specific and directed.  Its also the kind of thing that people WILLFULLY condemn because its easy to do so, its an acceptable target.  Also its kinda private, so I wouldn't tell people about it unless it becomes relevant to the conversation, in the same way I think someone might not tell their friend that they like to be called george washington during sex.  Do they need to know that?  Not really, all that would do is make them feel uncomfortable watching American history documentaries with you.

I have at two friends who know, but they don't really give a crap.
They don't really tell anybody and I'm sure nobody will actually care about one weird fetish.

I mean, all of them think I, like everybody else, get turned on by porn or x rated stuff, but ASFR is actually the only thing in my life that ticks me.

When it comes to my family I never make a single comment about petrification, and they don't really know anything about my fetish.

I'm also very uncomfortable at the rare times when my little brother asks me why a girl on TV is a statue and I'm all like "What? I... umm....... LOOK PONIES!!!"

Yeah... I suck.

That excuse didn't work for me back in the day when I happened to watch that old My Little Pony episode with Crunch the Rockdog.  Wink

My wife knew before we got married.  I thought it was important enough to our relationship that she not be blindsided by it later on, and since I do stories and pictures about the fetish, it was something that we were open about early on.  Fortunately, she's not only open-minded about it, but actively helps encourage it with me (doing up stories or pics as gifts, knowing, for lack of a better way of putting it, that it benefits her). 

I'm sure I got unreasonably lucky as far as that goes.   Cool

Other than that, nobody outside a small circle of friends has been told about it, although everyone who has been told about it has been open-minded about it.  More people have their own 'weird' fetishes than you might think.  Like bububub said earlier, I worry somewhat that all my art and writing and other creative work will eventually be marginalized as 'fringe fetish fuel', like how to some degree it already has on DA.

You're very lucky to have such an understanding wife, hehe.

For me, no one knew that I have this fetish and I'm not going to tell them.
