Does anyone thing their fetish may have been triggered by a mild OCD?

Post by countrylatexglover »

I have been wondering recently if my fetish really comes from having OCD. I know i have it because certain things would bother be before covid even though I could let most of it go, and my family has it also. However i was wearing gloves into stores before covid. It was either wanting to try it or my hands were actually cold (Rynauds). But since covid the gloves have come on and stayed on. not 27/4 but for most everything these days i have them on.

do you think your love of gloves or fetish items comes from ocd at all or maybe something different but our minds have turned them into something pleasurable for us?

I'm pretty sure it does not for me.

I remember addressing this once a couple of years ago on this forum. The lines have basically blurred for me; I don't know which helped develop the other, but I've had both for over 20 years. The OCD has developed considerably over the years. As a child, it would be all about "do this or someone dies". Now it's a lot milder and usually revolves around hygiene and fear of touching stuff I perceive to be unsanitary. I also have an annoying compulsion to tense my left arm repeatedly when I'm excited about something that I'm looking at.

I'm not sure if I have OCD. If I do it's not in the transitional sense. I do have a problem with obsessive thinking and deep thought. It's been especially difficult for me lately with everything going on. My mind hassles me to get to the bottom of everything going on in the world. I find myself paralyzed in thought quite often, and its starting to have an effect on my ability to concentrate. I'll need to speak to someone about this soon. I've always been like this to some degree though. I used to get in trouble at school all the time for daydreaming, but it would depend on the type of teacher. If it was one of those "Just read the text book!" types I would perform terribly and not pay attention, but if I had a teacher who stood up in front and explained things verbally and used examples I would perform very well.

I believe I might be a HSP (Hyper Sensitive Person), after reading a few articles about it I seem to tick all the boxes for that though it appears to be a personally trait rather than a disorder. I feel very in tune and sensitive to other peoples emotions. I seem to pay more attention to the way people speak to me rather than the words that actually come out, and more in-tune with facial expressions and tone of voice. I was talking to Mum the other day and she asked me if I thought I was autistic, not in a rude sense lol but she was genuinely asking me. Who knows maybe I am and maybe that's part of the reason I developed this fetish.
