What? The Sirens tried to lure all the sailors, not just Odysseus. That's why he gave all his men beeswax to plug their ears, long before the ship ever came within sight of the Sirens. So why can they still hear Odysseus, but not the Sirens?

Speaking of fetishes, though...
I know a guy who discovered that he had a jurisprudence fetish when he unexpectedly got off on a technicality.

Yes, but the responsible thing would have been to use the beeswax himself, not have himself tied up. Though that makes for a less interesting story.
