Anyone who’s watched HBO’s Real Sex know that there are a slew of fetishists out there. That’s nothing new. But, I’ve come across some that made my eyebrows arch.
It became blazingly obvious when one of the biggest searches that landed people on my blog Rock and Drool was “belly button fetish”. It was a tag I used when writing about my then toddlers, well, belly button fetish.
I took the tag down because, as a Mommy blogger, who wants posts about her children swarming with perverts, right?
But, on the side I decided to do a little research into the area of strange fetishes.
WOW. It’s amazing the things that turn people on. And it’s not JUST on a sexual level. Some of the reasons for these fetishes go deep, beyond sexual satisfaction.
So, aside from Navel fetishism, or umbiliphilia…a sexual attraction to belly buttons, I bring what I consider to be the most interesting.
1. Paraphilic Infantilism: Wearing diapers during sex.
2. Hematolagnia: A fetish for blood, it can be period blood too. Usually through bloodletting or cutting. Watch me bleed…
Sometimes, it can be combined with…
3. Odaxelagnia: Sexual arousal caused by biting a partner or by being bitten, whether or not blood is drawn.
The two together…we have vampires! Twilight. Le Stat.
4. Agoraphilia: Arousal by having sex in public places, or outdoors. Bathroom stalls. Alleyways. On top of the table at that fancy, crowded and newly opened French restaurant.
5. Eproctophilia: Farts. The smell. The sound. Personally, I gag. But some get off on it.
6. Oculolinctus: Licking someone’s eyeball. Yes, I’m serious. It’s a real fetish with a fancy Italian name.
7. Hirsutophilia: Being sexually attracted to hair. Armpits, pubic, chest, leg…whatever, makes these people go nuts.
8. Emetophilia: Sexually aroused by vomit. Both watching someone vomit AND being vomited on. I could vomit but I’m afraid I’d turn someone on.
9. Gerontophilia: These folks have a tendency to hang out at old folks home. Yeah, they are aroused by the elderly. I mean, the senior set is cute and all but..
10. Podophilia: One of the most common fetishes, the foot fetish. The sight, smell, fuzz between the toes, dirt under the toenails, dry heel skin. Yep, the whole shoe-bang.
There are more. Oh, so many more. We may even talk about it again on YWGB..because y’all need to know about the Boston steamer stuff.
