This is a Graduate course (an elective) so I am looking for someone to please write at that level. This will also have to have a low percentage for Turnitin (20% or less); I run it through Writecheck prior to submitting. I will also need at least 2 references. Thanks.* Attached are this week’s readings.

After reading this week’s articles do you feel if fetishes are a crime? Are there any potential criminal offenses that can be committed through fulfilling ones fetish; if so what are they?
