Fetish box

Hiya!

I think it would be a really good idea to have a box to tick for fetish work as currently, the only one similar is "adult".
I, along with quite a few other models, do fetish work (e.g. bondage websites) but not the traditional "adult" work, e.g. open-leg, G/G. I'm reluctant to mark that I do adult work, as I don't think it's an accurate representation for models shooting fetish.

Please could we have a fetish box?

Sorry, I'm not that sure that would really clarify what any particular individual will or will not do.
What I mean is you have nude ticked so people already know that nudity does not offend you and you would be willing to undertake nude work.
Adult to me (and I think to most) would indicate a more openly sexualised aspect, either solo or with a partner.
Fetish is even more subjective and can mean lots of things (whatever floats ones boat) you can do fetish fully clothed it is the story behind the picture that inspires the bodies largest sexual organ (the brain) to read into it what you want to.
e.g. you may well be willing to do bondage work nude. while somebody else would freak out if I asked to tie them up even fully clothed. However if I asked you could I photograph you fully dressed but wearing a Hitler youth uniform while holding a banana and standing behind a goat you would probable tell me (quite rightly) to sling my hook.

P.S. If you do fancy doing the latter scenario, then PM me

Mike I do agree with you to an extent on this but you said it yourself
"Adult to me (and I think to most) would indicate a more openly sexualised aspect"  

but to some "Adult means any form of nudity even topless,
so it would still mean the photographer using common sense and looking at the boxes ticked
nude = yes
fetish = yes
Adult = NO

these are all classed as fetish to some but not to others 1 would be bondage, 2 would be lingerie, but 3 could be fashion.
again and as always in the end it all comes down to communication. 



and saying that I have read some where that it is not uncommon for people in Japan to wear Shibari under every day clothes so in fact  all 4 images could be called fashion

Agree - this would be very useful, at least as much for photographers' profiles as for models'!

HA HA HAAAAAA *fell off my chair* I do get where you're coming from, but to *me* (and this is just my opinion), "adult" means open-leg/GG/BG/continental-type stuff, whereas "fetish" implies bondage/ponygirl/heavy rubber. I know that some models will do conventional adult levels but won't touch fetish. Or maybe instead have a "bondage box"? Now THAT sounds kinky!

+1 for fetish tick box

I know many girls that do adult but won't do fetish work ( bondage for example )

Would save tons of time and girls that generaly do fetish work would in turn get more work which isn't what this is all about.

I hate that the ADULT tag for castings includes fetish on here, since the purestorm definition of fetish says

"Adult' means that the type of picture you'll be expected to do are the type of pictures that appear in top shelf magazines like, Penthouse, Mayfair and Escort.
The kind of images you'd typically have to pose for involve nude, open leg shots and the like."


When most fetish stuff doesn't involve open leg shots, why is it classed as the same thing, but only where castings are concerned? Also... isn't everything fetish to someone? If I ask a model to wear shoes, I can guarantee that some foot fetishist out there is gonna drool over her feet.

I don't want to hijack this thread and turn it into an EROTICA versus PORN topic, but I have noticed some models work descriptions as G/G soft and G/G hard. Wouldn't the former be classified as fetish and the latter as being adult? I too think that a Fetish box would be a good idea.
