Golden Galore: Why some people like to be peed on during sex
Share This Article:
Fancy a bit of water sports? If anybody ever asks you that when it looks like they might be into a hookup, the water sports they're talking about don't exactly involve physical activity - at least, not in the way we normally intend it. Water sports (including the infamous “golden shower”) is in fact a slang term for sexual arousal provoked through urine. “Piss play” is a more direct term for the phenomenon. For people affected by urophilia, as it is scientifically called, the thought or sight of urine or the act of urination itself is sexually gratifying. As stated in a 1982 edition of the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry by Dr R. Denson, urophilia - like most other paraphilias - plays upon sexual arousal on many different levels. Urophiliacs usually get their jollies from urinating on or being urinated on by another person. In certain cases, it can go as far as bathing in urine, drinking urine (as is also practiced as part of some cults and rituals without deriving any sexual pleasure). Some people can even become sexually aroused by smelling people in urine-soaked clothes. Urine itself can be fathomed as a fetishistic object, as can feet or plants. However, it can also be understood as a method to get more intimate with a partner and capture their real essence. In other cases, the manifestations of this paraphilia are slightly more subtle - for example, there are people that are sexually aroused by having a full bladder; something that could easily resemble the principles of female squirting, therefore be purely anatomical in its essence.
