Today is International Fetish Day

January 20 is International Fetish Day Graphic
Don your purple clothing in support of the fetish community on this International Fetish Day!

The first International Fetish Day was celebrated in 2009 in part to protest a UK law banning “extreme pornography.” This was seen by many as an ill-conceived law that unfairly targeted consenting adults in the BDSM community. The wearing of purple was a way to signal that it’s okay to enjoy a fetish and shouldn’t harm a person’s reputation. It’s also a good opportunity to dispel harmful myths about fetishes.

To mark International Fetish Day, we’ve selected three sapphic books containing kink that are sure to broaden your horizons.

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!
