Sexual Fetishism...Taboo?

So, I was doing some research for a book I'm writing and fell across sexual fetishism. I found some of the information very interesting and wanted to pass it along to all of you.

There were so many fetishes out there that it blew my mind. Below are just a few that I found...interesting.

Acousticophilia: sexual arousal from certain sounds
Agalmatophilia: sexual attraction to statues or mannequins or immobility
Andromimetophilia: love of women dressed as men
Aquaphilia: arousal from water and/or in watery environments, including bathtubs or swimming pools
Aretifism: sexual attraction to people who are without footwear, in contrast to retifism
Dendrophilia: sexual attraction to trees and other large plants.
Diaper fetishism: sexual arousal from diapers
Eproctophilia: sexual attraction to flatulence
Fetishism: is the use of non-sexual or nonliving objects or part of a person's body to gain sexual excitement. Examples include:
Balloon fetishism -- breast fetishism -- foot fetishism (podophilia) -- fur fetishism -- leather fetishism -- lipstick fetishism -- medical fetishism -- panty fetishism -- robot fetishism -- rubber fetishism -- shoe fetishism -- smoking fetishism -- spandex fetishism -- dental braces fetishism -- transvestic fetishism Katoptronophilia: sexual arousal from having sex in front of mirrors.
Klismaphilia: sexual pleasure from enemas
Plushophilia: sexual attraction to stuffed toys or people in animal costume, such as theme park characters
Schediaphilia (aka Toonophilia): love (or sexual arousal) to cartoon characters/situations
Sitophilia: sexual arousal from food
Spectrophilia: sexual attraction to ghosts
Trichophilia: love (or sexual arousal) from hair
Xenophilia: sexual attraction to foreigners (in science fiction, can also mean sexual attraction to aliens)

Of course these are only a few of the TON of fetishes out there, but I thought these were pretty ineresting. I had no idea they had so many names fetishes, but I suppose when you're researching you are bound to come up with some pretty unique topics.

So, what do you all think about this?

Mmm, that's quite a list...lots of things that I'd never thought of in sexual terms. I just wonder who names them all ?
