New Age of Sexuality: Geeks and Fetish

With the growing popularity of geek culture (blockbuster movies based on comic books) and fetishism (50 Shades of Grey), is it any surprise that these two social, cultural identities are growing in popularity? Annalee Newitz examines the possible connection:
“…as geeks we tend to be inside our heads a lot. We like fantasies, whether they’re about spaceships or demonically hot creatures of the netherworld. So when we have sex, we want to bring our imaginations along.”
Makes sense to me! What do you think?
