    This question popped into my head the other day, when I accidentally found one of my Dad's porno's. It had an obvious focus on women with full bushes of pubic hair, not extremely hairy women or anything, just the "natural" look. Now, I love this. And I guess my dad does too!. Additionally, I was surprised to look in our internet history that I guess he forgot to clear. There were a few voyeur and exhibitionist sites, the other two "fetishes' I am into. I was pretty shocked, these are the only things I am into somewhat left of center sexually, and my father is too! So this poses the question, are sexual traits hereditary? Keep in mind that I only just found he likes such things, and he had no influence on my sexual fetishes as I grew up. I found I liked such things completely on my own, with no subtle hints or findings from him even when I was an imppressionable child.

    So what do you think?

    Nope. Too many environmental influences muddy the waters to blame it on genes.

    That would be like saying poverty is an inherited trait.

    Actually, several right-wingers have said poverty can be blamed solely on genetics.

    Although with the rich, the vast majority of their money was from inheritance.
