Dream symbol Fetishism


adoration, obsession, idolatry, fanatical, infatuation, devotion

There are two ways of taking up this term "fetishism": According to the beliefs of ethnology, fetishism symbolizes supernatural and magical powers, which are attributed to sacred objects and revered as holy. Through offerings and idolatry, the power of the fetish can be activated and increased.

On the other hand, the term "fetishism" stands for sexual expression in which certain things serve as uniquely preferred objects for sexual arousal as well as satisfaction of their needs. As examples can be shoes, clothes, underwear or mascots. However, gas masks can also be considered as fetishes. Most often, such desires are considered sexual perversion.

What could be hidden as a symbol or message in such a dream? Does it show repressed sexual preferences?

General dream interpretation

For general dream interpretation, dream fetishism means that the dreamer in question is specifically addicted or extremely fixated on someone or something in the real world.

This "submissive love" is a voluntary devotion of the dreamer to this object or subject. However, this could also be exploited and in the worst case used against him.

This visualization of "fetishism" can also show that the dreamer wants to be free of all sexual desires and prefers to get along without these desires and needs. Causes could be fear of closeness or lack of efficiency in the sexual field or also certain immaturity.

Sex dreams associated with a fetish may, according to the general view, indicate that the sleeper has a strong sexual orientation in the waking world. There could be a desire to get away from them and dive more into deeper worlds of feelings, less superficial in nature. If the subject dreams of an erection, triggered by a fetish, it usually expresses a longing for emotional affection.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychologically, the dream image "fetishism" may indicate that the sleeper has difficulties with closeness to other people in waking life. This can be in the physical as well as the mental realm. The dreamer longs for a union with other people, but cannot express this need appropriately in the waking world.

If the image of worship for a spirit appears in the dream as a fetishism to which a sacrifice is made, it reveals to the dreamer that he has gone in search of a believed lost part of himself. It is most likely repressed personality parts with which he wants to reconnect.

In the context of sexuality with this dream image of fetishism, the psychological dream interpretation indicates to deal more with one's own FEELING WORLD. The dream can give useful information about it in order to better illuminate one's longings and desires.
