From asphyxiophilia to trichophilia : a short guide to sexual fetishes

Whether we like it or not, let’s face the fact that the world does not stand still. People change, their preferences, desires and, of course, sex life. The emancipation promoted by modern society allows you to boldly realize the most intimate intimate fantasies. Many are in no hurry to share them with others (in some cases this is even good), while others reveal their secrets to partners, and together they embark on an amazing journey along the road of sexual pleasure.

In recent years, what was once considered perversion and mental deviations, in particular fetishism and BDSM culture, are not only widely accepted by society, but also constantly attract more and more supporters into their ranks. Research shows that 1 in 3 people have had an experience or fantasy of non-standard sex at least once. Even the WHO in 2018 excluded fetishism and transvestism from the list of “sexual perversions”, because for most fans of this kind of intimate activities, this is just an unusual form of sexual self-expression, which, with the right approach, can not only revive personal life, but also significantly strengthen relationships between partners.

4. Cuckolding

Or “cuckold”. It is a sexual fetish in which a man gets aroused by watching his partner have sex with another man or woman. Often the craving for ” cuckolding ” occurs in men who are tightly bound by the knot.

6. Dendrophilia

7. Asphyxiophilia

Asphyxiophilia involves holding your breath just before orgasm. It is believed that this adds spice to the intimate sensations and makes sex unforgettable. Playing with breathing during masturbation is called autoerotic asphyxia. In a couple, this effect can be achieved by pinching the partner’s nose, face or squeezing the neck area. Please note that these games are very dangerous, so you can only venture into them if you completely trust your partner. 

8. Handfetish

As the name suggests, hand fetishists have a morbid passion for hands. Some are attracted directly to the hand or to a specific part of it, for example, thin fingers that evoke associations with the male genital organ, or the refined curvature of the hand. Others experience arousal from any manipulation done with their hands, from washing dishes to masturbating .

Such a complex word, in fact, calls a very simple fetish (and, by the way, quite widespread) – sexual satisfaction from watching yourself in the mirror, during masturbation or intercourse. So, if you see a mirror or a mirrored ceiling at a friend’s bedroom, everything is clear: your friends are catoptronophiles .

11. Food fetish

16. Altocalcifilia

The clatter of women’s heels drives a huge number of men crazy. But altocalcifilia is not always exclusively about this. Supporters of this addiction not only adore high-heeled shoes, but also do not mind trying them on. Often in this way, they take part in role-playing games, often with submission. By the way, a man in heels in our time is not such a perversion. At least, if you carefully study the trends that fashion dictates to us .
