Fetish or Preference, Part 4

by The 4-Way Panel

Dear 4-Way,

I am an Asian-American woman who has encountered a lot of guys who have “orifechi” (from Oriental fetish). What gives? When I confront them with it, they get very pissed off and say it’s just an “aesthetic preference.” I call it bullshit. What do you say, and why does this exist?—NP

Point the Finger: Butter London Polishes

Some people smoke. Others turn to sweets. My version of stress-induced therapy? A mani-pedi. And I’m talking any mani-pedi. Whether it’s a mid-day break at the salon, or a leisurely DIY at-home session, I’m addicted to changing my polish. Although I’ve been hoarding every color under the sun since freshman year of college (yes, there is a difference between Essie’s Mademoiselle pink and Mistique Pink, thank you), I’ve only recently started paying attention to what toxins I might be inhaling each time I paint my digits.
