Top 10 weirdest sexual fetishes
Share This Article:
A paraphilia is sexual arousal or gratification involving a behaviour that is atypical or extreme. Thanks, Wikipedia. The international success of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has given rise to the topic of sexual fetishes. The surprise sensation packs a heavy sexual punch, predominantly in the less mainstream areas of bondage and sadomasochism. Whilst fetishes are often hidden under the rug and left out of discussion there are plenty out there, with most psychologists claiming they stem from childhood. Here are some particularly strange and disgusting (and even illegal) ones. 1. Vorarephilia – Diving into the deep end here. This is the fetish of being eaten by someone or eating someone else, more commonly known as ‘vore’. There are several types: fantasy vore (being eaten by dragons or trolls), prehistoric (dinosaurs) or hardcore vore. It appears to be related to cannibalism but an explanation of how it develops is beyond me. As well as being hilarious, it can be dangerous, as often the only object that is physically possible is Lego objects which, unsurprisingly, aren’t so great for the digestive system. 2. Formicophilia – This is the fetish of gaining pleasure from insects crawling on your genitals. It’s more common in developing countries and is thought to be so because of higher levels of insect infestation, particularly in bathrooms. 3. Emetophilia – The ‘Vomit Fetish’. Not that you need any more information, but those taking part gain pleasure from vomiting on each other during sex. Another name for it is the ‘Roman Shower’, originating from the mistaken belief of frequent vomiting at Roman feasts. 4. Dendrophilia – Literally means ‘love of trees’. Yes, amusingly, dendrophilia is the gaining pleasure from trees, many putting it down to their phallic shape. As to how this one could develop, words escape me.
