The Mating of Similars
Many will recognize all this as in part a statement of the familiar saying that opposites attract. The vitality of the phrase might suggest some measure of truth.

The Fetish in Love-Choice
Alfred Binet's main interest in fetishism lay in its connection with normal sexual choice. He noticed something else, how-ever, of great importance for our purposes.
The Fetish as a Key to Sexual Choice
The meaning of fetishism for the problem of normal choice is that it leads, first of all, to a view of attraction in terms of discoverable traits.
Sexual Attractiveness and Beauty
Fetishism is so rich in examples of peculiar sensibility that a view of amorous attraction based on it might seem to convert a large sector of choice behavior into a miscellany of unique or highly individual susceptibilities.
Amorous Growth
In the usual instance, sexual attraction and sexual love are distinguished from each other. Although falling in love suggests a sudden event, the process is widely regarded as one of growth.
Origins of the Fetish
The choice of the fetish depends upon the impression which is accidentally associated with the first genital excitement.
