Not necessarily. Mentally unstable perhaps.

No. Different things attract different people.

Fetishes are mortal "thorns in our fleshes." They are born of unhealthy and unnatural childhood associations. Children make poor judgments and irrational associations. Some never grow out of them. The Lord wants to help rid us of these so that we can fully commune with him spiritually.
So recognize these for what they are. Study scripture to learn how we overcome these thorns in our mortal fleshes through our spirits.

A fetish by definition was something that was worshiped as an idol. In the same way, a more modern definition is a sexual fascination with a thing that is an obsession. I don't think it's healthy to have an obsession like that towards a person other than the person who is supposed to be your spouse. So is it bad? Yeah, it can lead you further into sin with lust and temptation. It's better to hold such thoughts captive and to seek the will of God. When you are married, you can obsess all you want over your husband/wife. Save it until then.

There is nothing inherently sinful in having a preference. Everyone has preferences.
"Fetishes" specifically, however, are by definition sexual, so unless you're limiting your indulgence of it to your spouse, that is a sin.
