I've been thinking about the genesis of our fetishes and decided to start a thread on whatever early dreams or fantasies You might have had in Your childhood or later, that indicated/hinted at your future fetish. Your preferences might not have been developed yet, but You had those strange dreams, etc. I'll be writing some of my early experiences as well. For me it all started with the dream (I could have been 12-13), in which I was in the middle of the huge field of barley. It was very hot and I remember standing there naked, with some unknown force pushing me mentally to start running down the sandy path. After some time I got tired, fell down couple of times, but all this time I just knew there is something behind me demanding me to get up and run. I started pleading and crawling as I was too tired to walk, but there seemed to be no answer. I felt humiliated and vulnerable, and completely helpless. when I woke up, however, I didn't consider it a nightmare, I was strangely aroused. What were Your experiences?
