Across the Tumblrverse: Best Fetish Finds #NSFW

+

Attention voyeurs. Best Fetish Finds (BFF) is the tumblr for all your scopophilic needs. Launched in May 2012, the scintillating site has archived around 2000 amateur fetish images, all reblogged from Flickr accounts. From bald smokers to Wet and Messy (WAM) shoe fetishists, the portal covers seemingly every permutation of human desire, though it’s especially strong in the fashion dept—tightlacing, tube socks, PVC body inflation, sweater-oriented total enclosure, painted humanoid zentai suits, ursusagalmatophilia (aka “plushies” or “furies”), and on and on.

BFF uses an innovative OKFocus tumblr theme that zooms in on each post like the USS Enterprise coming at you in warp drive. All you have to do to cycle through is scroll (on an Apple laptop, that’s a two-finger stroke). For the techno-fetishist, this itself may turn into a satisfying compulsion; we can’t stop.

BFF is best enjoyed with judgment reserved—let the novelty pass through you, see what catches your eye, and if something does, follow the links out, delve deeper into the web.

Across the Tumblrverse is a regular feature that spotlights cool uses of the tumblr platform, like Michael Stipe’s Confessions and Ally Brooke’s yellow performance art.
