Planning A Vacation Around Your Fetish?

Image from

Have you told more than your web browser what you like and how you like it?  Having a fetish used to be very taboo, but it seems in more recent years, releasing your fetish seems to be more common. Are fetishes becoming more mainstream?

One reason why people may have bot shared their kink, their desires, their fetish, is because we are a judgy bunch of peeps. If it is something we don’t get into, it’s so easy to say it’s not for us, but it is more common-place to be a keyboard villain and degrade others for having different likes. 

How do we educate others that being gay is okay? By chatting and showing that all is well, we are great, just different, yet the same. Future Method feels the same way about fetishes.


At Future Method, we believe intimacy should be healthy, judgment-free and safe for everyone, which includes eliminating the stigma around things like fetishes, where two consenting, safe, non-violent adults are involved. We also believe in making proper education backed by science accessible, which is part of our mission and why we run this blog! 

Future Method created the following imagery based on Google search term volume. What state searches for fisting, sounding, balloons? Let’s see!

Any surprises? Are you thinking about that Grindr or Recon hook up and is it all coming back to you now? Ahhh, that’s why that happened in Cleveland. Of course these results are not for just the LGBTQ+ community but for all people searching for that right and like-minded companion, video, or scene. 


What are the most common fetishes?  Some of the most popular fetishes in the United States include BDSM, masochism, group play, sadism, sports gear, and armpits. What about what is more popular per region?  Maybe you’re planning for a multi-state travel.  Where will your fetish fit in?

The 9 TIED for the Northeast means 9 different fetishes (BDSM, sadism, balloons, edging, group play, leather, nylons, sounding, foot fetish) had about the same numbers for the most popular. So for variety, go north east!

But what group is the most prominent in the US?  Looking back at the states and their individual results, there are two states you can visit for used underwear, 2 for balloons, and 5 for masochism. 


With so many states standing alone on the tally, it just shows our fetishes are spread out all over this nation.  We’re all different.  Freaky?  No, that would be using a judgment word. Unless freaky means fun!

Thanks to Future Method and Dr. Evan Goldstein for the great info.  Now let’s go find out what we can get through TSA.
