Ok gang, i’m on the hunt for a fetish. Or as some people would say, a ‘preference’. 😀 I’ve found people get quite nervous about admitting they have a fetish, but the whole idea intrigues me – everyone seems to have one!
Although I have a few kinks (see also the kink page), I’m not entirely convinced they are a full blown ‘fetish’ so to speak. So I’ve made a list of various fetishes to road test to see if I like, and either ticking or crossing them off (in my mind – I don’t need to get that personal on here do I?!).
At the bottom of the page I’ve included links to websites containing more fetish options if you’re keen to make your own list (c’mon, have some fun!).
Oh and my rule is that I won’t try any of these on my own (eg. watching fetish porn), someone must be with me when I trial it for it to count as a proper ‘road test’.
So without further ado, here’s the list of fetishes I’m happy to try out (in alphabetical order, directly copied from said websites):
*Abasiophilia – People with impaired mobility.
*Acrotomophilia – The person is sexually aroused by the sight of an amputation usually of a whole arm or leg.
*Actirasty – Arousal to the sun’s rays.
*Asphyxiophilia – This is sexual arousal caused by loss of control over your ability to breathe. Self strangulation or allowing another person to asphyxiate you.
*Autagonistophilia – Unlike exhibitionism where the person intentionally exposes their genitals to an unsuspecting stranger, in this paraphilia the person creates situations in which other people could see them in the nude if the person wanted to. For example, it would be like leaving your curtains open and walking around the house naked in hopes that someone would peep in the windows. It is the thought that someone may be watching that is sexually arousing.
*Autoplushophilia – The image of one’s self in the form of a plush or anthropomorphized animal.
*BDSM – A variety of erotic practices involving dominance and submission, role-playing, restraint, and other interpersonal dynamics. Stands for Bondage/Discipline/Dominant/Submissive/Sadism/Masochism.
*Dendrophilia (or less often arborphilia or dendrophily) – literally means “love of trees”. The term may sometimes refer to a paraphilia in which people are sexually attracted to or sexually aroused by trees. This may involve sexual contact or veneration as phallic symbols or both.
*Forniphilia – Turning a human being into a piece of furniture.
*Gerontophilia – The person is only sexually aroused by a significantly older person. There has to be at least a 15 year difference between their ages.
*Heterophilia – Attraction to, fetishization, or sexualized idealization of heterosexuality and/or people who are “straight-acting,” especially by non-heterosexual people.
*Homeovestism – Wearing clothing emblematic of one’s own sex.
*Liquidophilia – Immersing genitals in liquids.
*Mixophilia – The person likes to watch their partner or themselves engage in sexual activity. Usually this means watching themselves in a mirror.
*Mysophilia – The person is sexually aroused by dirt, mud, or filth.
*Narratophilia – Telling dirty stories is sexually arousing.
*Nasolingus – Arousal to sucking on a person’s nose.
*Navel fetishism – Sexual attraction to navels – either their own or someone else’s.
*Oculophilia – A fetish of being aroused by eyes and activities directly relating to and/or involving the eyes. Seeing _______(any item) and then being aroused sexually would not meet classification for this term.
*Olfactophilia – The person is sexually aroused by body smells. Usually inserting finger anus, vagina, etc. and smelling it during sex.
*Pictohilia – Watching X-rated films is sexually arousing.
*Plushophilia – Sexual attraction to stuffed toy animals (Plushies).
*Pteronphilia – Arousal to being tickled by feathers.
*Pygophilia – Arousal to buttocks.
*Sexual fetishism – Nonliving objects.
*Somnophilia – The person can only maintain sexual arousal while having sex with someone who is sleeping. If the person wakes up they lose interest.
*Sophophilia – Sexual arousal from learning.
*Sploshing and Sitophilia – Sitophiles are turned on by food, but this can be through consumption, direct sexual contact with the food or simply by rolling around in it. Sploshers love being wet and messy and while the most common substances involved in the fetish tend to be edible, some sploshers like mud, oil and paint in place of pies, pudding and syrup.
*Sthenolagnia – Muscles and displays of strength.
*Stigmatophilia -Body piercings and tattoos.
*Telephonicophilia – Talking dirty on the phone or being talked to lewdly.
*Toucherism – Touching an unsuspecting, non-consenting person with the hand.
*Toxophilia – Arousal from archery.
*Transvestic fetishism – Wearing clothes associated with the opposite sex; also known as transvestism.
*Trichophilia – Hair.
*Troilism/Cuckoldism – watching one’s partner have sex with someone else, possibly without the third party’s knowledge.
*Voyeurism – Watching others while naked or having sex, generally without their knowledge; also known as scopophilia or scoptophilia.
Obviously there’s many more (I once found a list of 450!) but this is a good start. Hopefully it’ll push you to try out more things and find your fetish too!
