In 2007, economist Ray Fisman, in a two-year study he co-authored on dating preferences among Columbia University students, did not find evidence of a general preference among white men for Asian women.Furthermore, the study found that there is a significantly higher pairing of white men with East Asian women because East Asian women discriminate against black and Hispanic/Latino men.

Interracial relationships may occur for reasons distinct from race.

Asian fetishes have been criticised for treating the fetishized person as an object rather than an equal partner.

No, not the disease you can pick up when travelling to certain countries.

I'm talking about when Caucasian men develop an acute sexual preference for East Asian women – even becoming a fetish, for some.

Most commonly the term refers to a sexual obsession with Asian women experienced by some non-Asian men.

A fetish is something that is desired so heavily that it becomes an abnormal obsession.In movies, television and media, we see this stereotypical representation of Asian women as an objects rather than humans.Continuously seeing this image in mainstream media has led to the idea of the "Asian fetish". Butterfly, the writer David Henry Hwang, using the term "yellow fever", a pun on the disease of the same name, discusses white men with a "fetish" for (east) Asian women.In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever.Objects, body parts, clothing and people are all things that can be fetishized.
