Who else has a geography fetish?

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

I absolutely love looking at maps and photos of places. Every bit of them. Poring over the details, careful not to drool too much or else the maps will be ruined... thankfully, digital maps have solved that somewhat...

Now I'm addicted to Geograph UK. It has photos of virtually everywhere in Britain, and isn't confined to the streets. Lord help me, I can't stop...

I had a freaking 300 page Atlas that I used to pore over when I was a kid. It was awesome. I wouldn't call it a fetish, more of a fascination. I had more than a few globes too. My prized one was a pre-fall of communist Russia globe. I thought it was rather neat.

Geography Fetish? Wouldn't that be Geographilia?

Like "Stick your peninsula in my fjord" type fetish? Or something that might match up with the term "scenery porn"?

Personally, I like to see my geography up close and in person. I've got about 30 or so of the continental 48 done, and Hawai'i.

awweee yea, that's steamy!

maybe "ftish" is the wrong word? lol

OT:

I do like "exploring" on Google maps sometimes, I find it interesting sometimes to just follow random roads and look up random information about the towns I go through.

Occasionally I look out at a mountain or a river and I just feel such strong emotions. So beautiful, powerful, majestic. And then we fuck.


I love the geography in my area if that counts. I like learning about all the mountains we have and what not, though I live in a pretty awesome area geographically. In every other way it isn't too great, but the geography is awesome.

Yeah... fetish sounds like something sexual is involved when you talk about geography.. probably a strong interest is a better term... on that note tho.. i have always been curious about countries and capital cities.. damn you where in the world is carmen sandiego when i was a kid!

I've got google faps in my bookmarks.
Awww yeaahhh. Tag those hotspot.

i like geography but i side towards history

I love the terrain that geography creates, if that counts. For instance, I get to live near this most of the time:

Yes, I'm from Skyrim.

Well considering I just got lost on that map of the dead for at least an hour looking at tiny remote islands in the Pacific Ocean, yes, I have this.

Is that the peak district by any chance?

It's Dartmoor, but they do look very similar. The only bad thing is that I'm quite near the area where the army practice shooting each other, which is problematic if you get lost.

Dense forest and snowy landscapes are my favorite although desert landscapes just bore the hell out of me.

You three have just made me pee myself with laughter.

OT: I have more of a thing for naming and identifying countries and territories and having a general knowledge about them. Scenary is nice but not as awesome as telling someone about how Corsica is where Napoleon grew up.

Why of course.

Mm, fuck yeah.

I absolutely love looking at maps

You need these in your life

Fetish: an object or bodily part whose real or fantasized presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification and that is an object of fixation to the extent that it may interfere with complete sexual expression.

You do not have a map fetish, you just like them.

I also have a borderline dictionary fetish, so let me rebuke you with this:

Fetish:
3. any object, activity, etc, to which one is excessively or irrationally devoted: to make a fetish of cleanliness.

It's not sexual. Although it can be if you want it to be

I'll take the globe. I love spinning them around.

As I geographer,I feel obligated to highlight that geography does not only involve maps and photographs (I haven't used a map in geography for at least a year)..it covers a huge range from rives to wars to policing.

*mini rant over*

but as a person, then yes I do enjoy maps and photographs. I actually love to look at modern vs vintage maps to see how places have changed!

As do I. Maps are just my favourite part of geography. I also like talking about landscape features. Crater lakes and river deltas, for instance. Or the topography of the deepest ocean trenches...

Fair enough! I used to love the deepest trenches (still do really) but recently my eyes have moved skywards to the idea of space

When does a geographer become an astronomer? Can you be a space geographer without becoming the latter?

Ha HA, I knew there had to be someone out there who had the same animalistic lust for knowledge of the globe that I poses. Yes sir I too, love to look over the maps of the world, learn their capital cities and other useless facts about their world, ah tis a good life. Also being Australian, it continually frustrates me that most of the maps I ever end up reading have greenland looking almost the same, if not larger than us. Western Australia on its own is larger than greenland you fools, get your facts right God Damnit, also Queensland is bigger than Alaska, just putting it out there.

Indeed, I love it jacking it to the picture of some firm mounds.

Oh, baby.

I can only make love through a hole in an original copy of a 16th century Mercator World Map.
Here be your dragon!

I had a hot geography teacher, if that helps...

I just love looking at pictures of Welsh valleys. They make me cwm.

I have a fetish for people who know their geography. As in, they can look at a map of Europe and tell its Europe.

Sounds stupid but these people are becoming increasingly rare.

Really, We'll educated in general is a turn on.

OT: I like looking at maps of military action in wars and the like.

sextus the crazy:

I'm not sure if that's ironic, or meant to highlight why you find educated individuals attractive.

Accursed erroneous apostrophe!

Holy mother of Thor, Space geography! You, my friend, may have just shaped my future. That is one of the most brilliant things I have heard.

And to answer your question, I am not sure. It just fascinates me to know that we are nothing much more than a speck of dust within the universe

*edit* must learn how to quote shorters pieces...

Sounds more like you have a cartography fetish.
"Why are all these maps stick-OH GOD!"
Stay away from my maps.

It's not the same for us Irish, we are constantly stalked by a big creepy deviant:

Look at Wales, going for our ass, and Scotland breathing down our knecks... he sniffs us when we aren't looking.
