(Sadism. Masochism. S&M. BDSM)

Sadism refers to sexual or non-sexual gratification in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon or by another person. Masochism refers to sexual or non-sexual gratification in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon oneself.

Often interrelated, the practices are collectively known as sadomasochism as well as S&M or SM. These terms usually refer to consensual practices within the BDSM community.

Giant fetish (Macrophilia)

Macrophilia refers to sexual fantasy involving fictitious giants, primarily giant women.[1] Variants include metamorphic fantasies; the diminution of men so that average-sized women appear relatively huge, or more commonly, ordinary women growing to giant size.

Humorist David Sedaris's essay, "Giantess", reprinted in Barrel Fever (1994),[2] describes writing for a magazine specializing in erotic stories about giant women and the particular attention that must be paid to the transformation and tearing of clothes.

Tickling sex (Knismolagnia)

Tickling fetishism is a paraphilia in which participants derive sexual stimulation from tickling, or being tickled by, another person. Knismolagnia is the experience of sexual gratification from the act of tickling. Erotic tickling may involve the physical restraint of a submissive by a dominant. Although some consider it a BDSM activity, tickling is not fully recognised by the community and is relatively unknown in the mainstream.

In domination and submission scenarios, sexual partners may agree upon a safeword to signal that the tickling should stop.

Enema fetish (Klismaphilia)

Klismaphilia (sometimes spelled Klysmaphilia) is the paraphilia of deriving sexual pleasure from enemas. Some providers in the sex industry offer enemas to cater to klismaphiliac desires. It is sometimes regarded as a form of anal masturbation. There are many movies, magazines and websites devoted specifically to this fetish. The term was coined in 1973 by Dr. Joanne Denko.

Klismaphilia is often connected to a fetish for spanking, anal play, and diapers.[citation needed]


Mirror sex (Katoptronophilia)

Katoptronophilia is a paraphilia for mirrors (the Greek word for mirror is katoptron). It may include activities such as having sex in front of mirrors, masturbating in front of mirrors, enacting other paraphilias in front of a mirror, having an orgy in front of a mirror, or enacting stripping fetishism in front of mirrors.

Bonnie and Clyde Syndrome (Hybristophilia)

Hybristophilia is a paraphilia involving being sexually aroused or attracted to people who have committed an outrage or a gruesome crime. In popular culture, this phenomenon is also known as the Bonnie and Clyde Syndrome.

Many high-profile criminals, particularly those who have committed atrocious crimes, receive fan mail in prison, presumably as a result of this phenomenon. In some cases, admirers of these criminals have gone on to marry the object of their affections in prison.

Human animal roleplay

(Petplay. Ponyplay. Ponyism. Pup-play)

Human animal roleplay  is a form of erotic sexual role-play where one or more of the participants takes on the role of a real or imaginary animal in character, including appropriate mannerisms and behavior, and sometimes a partner will act as another animal, or, in a sexual context, may take the role of rider, trainer, or caretaker (or even breeding partner).

Own gender clothing fetish (Homeovestism )

Homeovestism is a concept identified by George Zavitzianos and further developed by Louise Kaplan, to refer to the arousal of a person by wearing clothing appropriate to his or her gender, in comparison with the more widely recognized practices of transvestic fetishism, in which one is aroused by wearing clothing appropriate to the opposite gender.

Pubescent children sex (Hebephilia)

Hebephilia refers to the sexual preference for pubescent children; the term was introduced by Glueck (1955).[1] It differs from ephebophilia, which refers to the erotic interest in children in mid- to late adolescence,[2] and from pedophilia, which refers to the erotic interest in prepubescent children.[3] Although individuals with a sexual preference for adults (i.e., teleiophiles) also have some sexual interest in pubescent-aged individuals,[4] the term hebephilia is reserved for those who prefer pubescent-aged individuals over adults.

Rubbing fetish (frotteurism)

In psychiatry, the clinical term frotteurism (no longer called frottage) refers to a specific paraphilia which involves the non-consensual rubbing against another person to achieve sexual arousal. The contact is usually with the hands or the genitals and may involve touching any part of the body including the genital area. The majority of frotteurs are male and the majority of victims are female,[1] although female on male and male on male frotteurs exist.
