In this age of empowerment and being free to be who you are and expressing yourself, there still is a part of everyone's life that is still private. The subject is sexuality, however, it is not just about being heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual, bisexual, or any combination, but is what you like to do in expressing your sexual desires. Even admitting that you like a favorite sexual position can be considered inappropriate subject of conversation, even with your closest of friends or even your spouse, but even more intimate than that is sharing that you have a fetish.
Maybe your wife or husband or sexual partner is open to the idea of sharing in your fetish fantasies, but for many, this is an embarrassing aspect of their sexual lives. It is often difficult to divulge fetishes and many feel as if they must conceal it. For some, it is a way to maintain the peace. If one partner is against exploring a fetish, the relationship could get uncomfortable. More drastic than this is the possibility of coworkers finding out about your fetish. This could ruin your professional reputation and could be devastating to your career.
It is possible to keep your fetish a secret and keep it your own private business, which it should be. No one needs to know about your deepest fantasies except when you choose to share it with those whom you trust. With the popularity of the Internet as a means of maintaining anonymity while exploring your own sexuality and your own tastes, it is, ironically, also a great way for others to find you out.
If anyone uses your computer and traces of the sites you recently visited appear on your computer, your private life will not be private anymore. Imagine the humiliation of the numerous men and women, just like you, who have wanted to keep their personal lives private yet were found out. You should be the only one to be able to disclose your own desires and no one else. You should be able to do this on your own terms.
The best way to do this is with the use of porn blocking software. Even if your fetish is not pornographic in nature, you can control what sites the software blocks and you can control when it is used. This is perfect if you have kids or for your office where coworkers can look over your shoulder or somehow gain access to your computer.
There are many software applications that do this so be sure to compare the capabilities of them. Also, do not be fooled into thinking that the application from the biggest companies is the best. Many times, these companies put their name on the box, hoping their brand will carry weight when it comes to consumers purchasing their software.
Though there is nothing wrong with having a fetish, or even fetishes, there is also nothing wrong with protecting your own private identity and personal life. It is no one's business but your own and this is worth protecting.
Having a fetish is normal. It does not make you a freak, it does not mean you are a pervert, and it certainly does not make you a bad person. However, it is reasonable that admitting you have a fetish, whatever it may be, can be an embarrassing situation and hiding your fetish from your friends, family and children is understandable. There is a way to hide your fetish while looking like just another prudent computer owner who wants to protect his or her computer from viruses and malware.
