Fox on Sex: More Kink, Less Sex

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Hey guys, if your New Year’s resolutions included catching up with the raciest sex trends and getting more action between the sheets, you might be surprised to find out that, this year, kinkier doesn’t mean more notches on the bedpost.

Bizarre, incomprehensible, and downright wacky, getting caught bookmarking these new fetishes on your computer shouldn’t get you in trouble with your mate since there is no sex involved! The Web site with over a million fetish videos,, tallies the top three categories as:

1. Muscle girls wrestling. These aren’t your average babes in bikinis, these are ladies with Terminator-sized biceps and hamstrings. No "intimacy," just some good old-fashioned Greco Roman wrestling.

2. You’ve heard of foot fetishes, but this year brings us feet — in heels or bare — stomping on appliances and food.

3. Shirt-ripping. We’re not talking undershirts, but rather oxford button down shirts. Expensive hobby if you shop at Calvin Klein…

Don’t find these titillating? That’s probably because you are female. The majority of fetishes are experienced by men, and are due to having attached an erotic meaning to a normally "mundane" situation in youth.

Dear Doc,

My husband's penis is an average size, but more on the smaller size. He asked me the other day if I’d seen bigger. Luckily the phone rang so I didn’t have to answer, but I know he’ll ask again.

Dear Cornered,

Don’t answer. Here are your choices:

1. Look exasperated and confused and say "What is it with guys and size? Men are so weird. Ask your guy friends, not me."

2. Give this response: "Honey, I’m a quality kind of girl not a quantity type. Go ask someone who has a wider breathe of experience. I know what I like," (wink at his member), "but I can’t tell you within inches what the norm is out there …"

3. Say "no idea," then start rubbing lotion on your legs. If he asks again, rephrase and lotion up another body part.
