When discussing this with friends or family, I've always said that somehow, this fetish seems to be rooted in the "reptilian brain," and is something that cannot be changed any more than the particular things which turn on, resonate with, or drive, the rest of us, whether it is sexually, intellectually, emotionally, etc. My turn-ons just ARE, and it's just by sheer luck, perhaps, that my turn-ons are legal (so far -- we'll just have to see how much further this new Patriot Act creeps into our minds and bedrooms).

But I've only been pulling that notion out of thin air; I'm just a layman who took some psych courses in college (= I have no idea what I'm talking about). I always prefer to see some research or educated commentary on my little hunches.
