I have a strong sexual attraction to, and erotic fascination with, the sight of the female leg wearing an orthopaedic cast, particularly along its full extent, from toes to hip. Now in my mid-forties, I have been aware of this ‘interest’ since my early teens, which might explain my particular attraction to plaster casts, as were the norm at such a time, which somehow seem heavier and more of a physical entity than contemporary casts.
For many years, I assumed this peculiar attraction to be mine alone, but, since the advent of the internet, I have become aware that a number of like-minded souls exist, that the ‘cast fetish’ is out there in the world of cyberspace, and is practised recreationally in the real, everyday world by those who have the inclination & means to do so.
As the online aspect of this fetish has developed over recent years, I now find I am able to satisfy my visual needs through the large number of available images, of both medically- and recreationally-worn leg casts – I have obsessively built a large collection of pictures of women wearing leg casts, and frequently enjoy these.
I have always assumed that my obsession is based on the aesthetics of the leg wearing a cast, being related as it is to my general attraction to women’s legs, feet, toes, boots, etc – the leg cast is very much an ‘object of desire’ in its appearance and in the manner it objectifies the leg inside.
However, I wonder whether my ‘interest’ may have other underlying, hidden causes and inspirations?
I wonder this because I have never had occasion to wear a cast myself (and thus experienced the physical restrictions imposed by one), and neither has anyone with whom I might spend regular, extended periods of time, such as a family member or close friend, although I have often imagined that female friends might have to have a leg in plaster that I might be around them, or that I might meet & form a relationship with a woman in such a situation. – I have a very strong desire to be in the presence of a leg cast as it is being worn, that I might interact with it and the wearer, that I might experience the sexuality of such.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated, thank you.
