Well now you boys are getting into the whole nature vs. nurture debate. I am going to swing this thread back around to it's original topic of how medical experiences become sexualized and ixnay the gay issue now, with all due respect. (While I am not a psychic, I was seeing this thread getting spun out of control, becoming very heated, and way off topic, quickly. We don't want that now do we?)
Alfdtuna, you do bring up good points though. It's the whole chicken or egg question. My favorite color is white. I don't know anyone else who's favorite color is white. Strange, but why white? I don't know that, and can't recall a reason for that either. Read further and you will understand what I said that, lol.
I have always argued the difference between a real medical fetish and medical porn. They are two different things. I believe that a person who is only into medical porn does not have a fetish and will never understand it, but a person with a true medical fetish can understand why a person is into medical porn. While most people associate the word fetish with sex, this isn't always the case here. There are a lot of people who have a medical fetish and never ever want sex or anything that deviates from "real" during play, but usually understands why someone could be and does become sexually aroused. However, someone who is only into medical porn and doesn't have a fetish will never understand how some of us can desire medical play and not get turned on or want to have some sort of sexual act during our play. Just because you like looking at a hot chick naked on the exam table does not mean you have a medical fetish by any means, it means you like a hot lady naked, and I'm guessing they would have pretty much the same degree of arousal if that same woman was naked on top of a motercycle, on the hood of a Mustang, or hanging off a stripper pole.
I can link my fetish back to several things from when I was a kid. 1) I had to get a gammagobulin shot when I was 5-ish, 2)At that same time I watched an episode of M*A*S*H where Margaret bent Halkeye over Blakes desk and gave him a shot in his fanny. She was a strong woman, and a nurse taking control over a male doctor. I believe the combination of those two things really did it for me. But you also have to take into consideration that for the majority of people here, we were raised in a time when doctors especially were highly respected people, an authority figure. For a lot of us the doctor also invaded our homes, our bedrooms when we were sick, young, vulnerable, and most importantly, impressionable.
It has been my experience that for most people who do have a real medical fetish that it was "aquired" sometime during their childhood due to similar experiences.
