Robbery fantasies (Chremastistophilia)

Chremastistophilia (from Greek stem chremastistes and the suffix philia ) is a paraphilia whereby sexual arousal is obtained from being robbed, being held or alternatively from being charged for sexual services[1],[2]. Kleptophilia, also known as kleptomania, on the other hand is an inability or great difficulty in resisting impulses of stealing and possibly the related sexual arousal.

Rape fantasies (Biastophilia)

Biastophilia (from Greek biastes, "rape" + -philia) and its Latin language-derived counterpart, raptophilia (from Latin rapere, "to seize"), also paraphilic rape[1], refer to a paraphilia in which sexual arousal is dependent on, or is responsive to, the act of assaulting an unconsenting person, especially a stranger.[2][3]

Some dictionaries consider the terms synonymous,[4] while others distinguish raptophilia as the paraphilia in which sexual arousal is responsive to actually raping the victim.[5]

Men thinking themselves as Women (Autogynephilia)

Autogynephilia (pronounced /ˌɔːtoʊˌɡaɪnəˈfɪliə/) (from Greek αὐτό (self), γῦνή (woman) and φῖλία (love) — "love of oneself as a woman") is the term coined in 1989 by Ray Blanchard to refer to "a man's paraphilic tendency to be sexually aroused by the thought or image of himself as a woman."[1] It has been theorized to motivate erotic cross-dressing (transvestism) in biological males and to motivate gender dysphoria in some biological males.

Erotic asphyxiation

Erotic asphyxiation refers to intentionally cutting off oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. It is also called asphyxiophilia, autoerotic asphyxia, scarfing, kotzwarraism, or breath control play. A person engaging in the activity is sometimes called a gasper. The erotic interest in asphyxiation is classified as a paraphilia in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association.

Foot fetish (aretifism)

(foot fetish)

Foot fetishism, foot partialism, foot worship, feet sex, or podophilia is a pronounced sexual interest in feet.[1] It is the most common form of sexual preference for otherwise non-sexual objects or body parts.[2] Depending on the circumstances in which it is performed, it can also be considered a moderate form of erotic humiliation.

Water fetish (aquaphilia)

(water fetish; swimming fetish)

Aquaphilia also called hydrophilia, is a term used to describe a form of sexual fetishism which involves images of people swimming or posing underwater, and sexual activity in or under water. Eg. water sex, swimming sex. Literally "water lover" from the Latin aqua and Greek φιλειν (philein).[citation needed]


(Self-amputee fetish)

Apotemnophilia is the erotic interest in being or looking like an amputee.[1][2] It should not be confused with acrotomophilia, which is the erotic interest in people who are amputees.[3] When experienced very strongly, some people with apotemnophilia come to feel discontented with their bodies and want to actually remove an otherwise healthy limb, a condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder. Some apotemnophiles seek surgeons to perform an amputation or purposefully injure a limb in order to force emergency medical amputation.[4][5]

Transsexual fetish (andromimetophilia)

(transsexual fetish)

Andromimetophilia (sometimes misspelled as androminetophilia) is an attraction to women who imitate men[1] or to female-to-male transsexuals, both preoperative,[1] or postoperative.[2]

The paraphilic counterpart to andromimetophilia is gynemimetophilia[citation needed], the attraction to men who imitate women, or male-to-female transsexuals.

Amputee fetishism

(acrotomophilia; amelotatism; apotemnophilia)

Amputee fetishism is the erotic interest in individuals with an amputated limb.

Within the nomenclature of sexology, an attraction to amputees and amputation may be known as either acrotomophilia (from the Greek akron [extremity], tomein [to cut] and philein [to love]), or amelotatism, while the attraction to amputating one's own body parts is known as apotemnophilia.

Pain fetish (algolagnia)

(pain fetish)

Algolagnia (pronounced /ælgəˈlægniə/) (from the Greek άλγος, algos, "pain", and λαγνεία, lagnia, "lust") is a sexual tendency which is defined by deriving sexual pleasure and stimulation from physical pain, particularly involving an erogenous zone.
