ABSTRACT. A case of complex paraphilia is presented, followed by its integration into the encompassing group (containing descriptions, in terms of ICD-10 and DSM-5, of fetishism, transvestic fetishism, exhibitionism, voyeurism, paedophilia, sexual masochism, frotteurism, paraphilias not otherwise specified), complete with definition, epidemiology, diagnostic criteria, etiology, and treatment. With arguments borrowed mainly from Carl Gustav Jung, Sigmund Freud and Anthony Storr, a line is drawn from fetishism though pornography to (artistic) creativity. pp. 194-202

Keywords: fetishism, image symbolism, word symbolism, artistic creativity, Richard Wagner
