What's that you say? You didn't know people fetishized pregnancy? I didn't either, once upon a time. As I journeyed deeper into the fetish world, I came to learn that pregnancy and pregnant women can be a very strong fantasy for some, particularly males.
When I wrote my book Mercy, one of the most controversial scenes involves the hero impregnating the heroine. It just so happens that in Mercy, the impregnation is non-consensual. This too is a fetish for some, as I was to discover when people started to write to me about their feelings for that scene. Some of them were outraged -- literally spitting mad -- that he would do such a thing to the heroine. Others saw the forced impregnation as the ultimate sign of male dominance, and guiltily confessed that it got them hot.
I can certainly understand the latter view. Honestly, I find the scene hot too, well...as a fantasy. I think most who fetishize pregnancy and "breeding" do so in a fantasy sense. For a dominant, what can be more powerful than creating a life in another person? For a submissive, what can be more exciting than being a vessel for bearing the child of your master? Okay, sure, that sounds kind of sick. After all, the result of this fetish, a child concieved, is a non-consenting participant.
Once on Fetlife, I came across a thread by a master concerning "breeder slaves." He was asking Do you have one? Have you fantasized about breeding your slaves? Half the respondents were like, ooh, that's hot. And the other half were basically saying You are a sick f*ck!
But that's the nature of kink. Sometimes we fantasize about things we would never actually do. Sometimes we fetishize things just because they're beyond the pale, or because they tap into some elemental base desire of human animals. In reality, we are too civilized to go around knocking up everyone we love just to show our power over them.
But is it a hot thing to fantasize about? What do you think?
