In brief: Emotions are strong

Most fetishes, including the attaction and pleasures that come from lingerie, are very deep seated and resist ordinary attempts at removal.
Lingerie fetish takes the form of voyeurism and personal wearing of lingerie in an inappropriate manner. This can be suppressed from social pressure but is likely to remain underneath. Indulged in carefully, it is rarely harmful.
