Sexual Fetishes

30 Sexual Fetishes That Are Way More Common Than You’d Imagine

For most people getting aroused can have as varied triggers as possible. While some may get in the mood by just seeing stuffed animal others may need their partner seducing them for that to happen. Here is a list of 30 Sexual Fetishes that are actually true and practiced by many individuals.

1. Fetishism

This is when you’re sexually aroused by something that’s been in physical contact with the desired person.

From their clothes to their phones, any and every object can turn you on!


2. Voyeurism

Some people get aroused looking at other people having sex in real-life. This is the name for that fetish!


3. Urophilia

Sexual arousal to urine, those with this fetish either like peeing on others or enjoy their partners peeing on them.

Alternatively, having sex in a tub full of pee is another option!


4. Anililagnia

This one is super-super common. In this case, a man is only attracted to older women and never to someone his own age.


5. Nasolingus

For those with this fetish, increased sexual arousal and pleasure comes out of sucking someone’s nose.


6. Body Piercing

Ask the younger lot and body piercing seems to be a top fetish amongst them. Interior designer Priya Gill says, “A pierced body turns me on. It can be anything from belly buttons to tongues and eyebrows.

Everyone should have at least one body piercing in “that” place to create a feeling of arousal”.

Dr Rajan Bhonsle puts in a word of caution saying, “One should be very careful as to where he has got the piercing done from.


7.  Pee Fetish

You’ve likely heard of a “golden shower” (the act of peeing on someone for the purpose of sexual pleasure) and the people who like giving or receiving golden showers are characterized as having a pee fetish.

The clinical term for this paraphilia is “urolagnia.”


8. Impact Play

Impact play means spanking, flogging, paddling, and other forms of consensual striking.

Spanking is often an easy and safe BDSM entry point that leads to exploring more, such as purchasing a crop to use with a partner.

Impact play can range from a light slap on the bum to a crack of the whip.


9. Swinging

It’s the scenario when a consenting married couple indulges in sex with another couple or individual.


10. Podophilia

Commonly known as foot-fetish, this is the fetish of getting sexual pleasure and arousal out of sucking, nibbling, licking, touching and/or caressing someone’s feet.


11. Body Piercing

Ask the younger lot and body piercing seems to be a top fetish amongst them. Interior designer Priya Gill says, “A pierced body turns me on.

It can be anything from belly buttons to tongues and eyebrows. Everyone should have at least one body piercing in “that” place to create a feeling of arousal”.

Dr Rajan Bhonsle puts in a word of caution saying, “One should be very careful as to where he has got the piercing done from.

The area should be free from any kind of infection and kept clean. One should also try to sterilise the ornament they are wearing”.


12. Braids And Ponytails

A woman’s hair has always been a fetish for men. Blondes, brunettes, red heads, long haired, short haired, thick hair or curly haired – men enjoy the feel of a woman’s hair.

Raj Kaushal says that, “any girl who has a funky hairstyle or indulges in experimentation with her hair attracts me.I think it’s attractive and sexy”. Hair is used as prop most often in sexual sessions.

Dr Dev says, “Men love to play with a woman’s hair and get naughty. Even a slight f difference in colour or texture excites them”.


13. Lingerie

Renye says that one of the most common fetishes centers on something that may be sitting inside your dresser right now: lingerie.

“[This] may show up in sexual play between and among individuals who may not even consider themselves kinky or to have a fetish (or two or three),” she says. Again, while many people get aroused by sexy underwear, lingerie becomes a fetish when someone needs it to be present in a sexual scenario in order to fully engage or get off.

A common lingerie fetish involves stockings, a fetish that can overlap with a love of feet.

Lingerie is an example of the lesser-used definition of a fetish: an attraction to an object. (Try Harry Potter underwear to explore both role-playing and lingerie.)


14. Role Playing

You don’t have to stop playing make-believe when you grow up. Role-playing means acting out a sexual fantasy with your partner(s), either once or as part of an ongoing fantasy, Renye says.

While it can be a fetish or kink within itself, it’s also a healthy way to act out other fantasies. For instance, if you have a medical fantasy, and are aroused by doctors, you probably don’t actually want your doctor to get sexy with you because that would be creepy and abusive.

The beauty of role-playing is that you can have your partner dress up as a doctor and indulge your fantasy consensually in your own home.


15. Orgasm Control

Orgasm control is part of BDSM, as it involves an element of dominance and submission.

Edging, in which the submissive partner is brought to the brink of climax and then forced to stop — often done repeatedly — is an example of orgasm control.

The idea here is that for as long as you like, you let your partner take the reins and determine when and how you come.

As with all of the activities here, anyone can engage in orgasm control regardless of their genitalia.


16. Voyeurism

A study on fetishes published in the Journal of Sex Research found voyeurism — or obtaining sexual pleasure from watching others who are naked or having sex — to be one of the most common fetishes. Of course, as with every other fetish, engage in voyeurism consensually, for example at a sex party where a couple has given you permission to watch; watching someone without their permission is never acceptable.

The flip side of voyeurism is exhibitionism, which means achieving sexual pleasure by allowing others to watch you. (A sex party is a great setting in which to do this, too.)


17. Breath Play

Breath play involves the restriction of oxygen to the brain to achieve a heightened orgasm. Self-induced breath play during masturbation is known as autoerotic asphyxiation.

Breath play within a couple can be achieved by nose pinching, holding your breath, cover the face with a hood or plastic bag, “corseting” (pushing down on someone’s chest), choking, hanging, or “kinging” / “queening” (smothering your partner with your genitals).

Any time you restrict someone’s ability to breathe, you’re engaging in a risky behavior, so breath play falls within the realm of BDSM behaviors known as “edge play,” in which your partners is very much responsible for your life.


18. Fetish Of Having Sex With A Sex Worker

The high from having adulterated sex with a sex worker gives a kick. Sayali Singh, a student openly admits “Though I am into a relationship, but last year for the first time I made out with a gigolo.

It was extremely exciting as we tried out new sexual positions as compared to my staid boyfriend whose company I don’t enjoy much”.

Sexologist Dr. Shekhar Shah highlights that, “while having sex with a prostitute, one should be clear that the person is free from sexually transmitted diseases or he has to pay much more for a fun of a few minutes.”


19. Vorarephilia

Vorarephilia is an abnormal sexual condition characterized by the tendency to become aroused by the idea of eating someone, the idea of being eaten by someone, or by witnessing a cannibalistic scene.

People with this particular paraphilia are commonly referred to as vores.


20. Sleeping Sex

Sexsomnia is a rare sleep disorder that prompts an individual to seek sexual activity in their sleep.

Although most reported cases involve men, both males and females may initiate sleep sex.


21. Spanking Art

Spanking art is generally enjoyed by people who identify as spanking enthusiasts in the bedroom.

Spankophilia is a paraphilia characterized by arousal from spanking or being spanked. It falls within the realm of of BDSM (bondage, discipline, submission, sadomasochism) behaviors, although it’s a sexula fetish in and of itself.


22. Extreme Feeding / Feederism

Feeders or “encouragers” take pleasure in funneling excessive quantities of food into the mouths of “gainers.”

Some extreme feeders enjoy the sensation of inserting their penis between a gainer’s fat folds.


23. Voyeurism And Display

Many couples confess to being turned on by pornography or watching another couple in the act.

HR executive Raj Kaushal admits, “Watching a porn movie makes a lot of difference to my partner and me. Erotic scenes give us a high”.

On the other hand there are couples who liked to be watched or even video tape their sessions to later enjoy viewing them.

Dr. Rajan Bhonsle explains, “This is a common phenomenon as porn movies are meant to give both partners a sexual boost and inspiration”.


24. Balloon Fetish / Looners

People with a balloon fetish (aka “looners”) find balloons sexually attractive and incorporate them into their sex lives.

While some find creative ways to have sex with balloons, others simply enjoy the sight of their partner sitting on a balloon and popping it.


25. A Certain Ilk Of Public Nudity

“Not so weird, but I am absolutely enthralled with public nudity, whether it is in a crowded public area or secluded mountain trail, and whether it is nonsexual or public humiliation/bondage.

On that note, girls that flash poorly (pull shirt down, turn around for the camera, then pull shirt back up) or completely spreading themselves is an instant turn off.”


26. A Nice, Sexy, Old Pair Of Sneaks

“Sneakers. I’m really not a fan of shoes that are traditionally considered “sexy.” I don’t like heels, or really anything open-toed.

I like some boots, but again, not a fan of heels. I really love a girl in a pair of sneakers. Less jewelry (if any), less makeup (though most people subscribe to the “less is more” school of thought in terms of makeup), no nail polish, less “sexy” clothes, and sneakers.

That is what I love a girl to look like.”


27. Psychological Play

While physical actions, such as spanking, are often the most discussed kinks and fetishes, some of the most intense sexual play takes place in the mind.

Renye refers to psychological power play as “mind control,” and it’s a type of BDSM.

Psychological play involves implementing a sexual power exchange: Humiliation play, for example, might involve a submissive partner getting off on being called names.

Consensual threats are an example of psychological play; one example is a domme warning a male submissive with a foot fetish that he’ll have to lick her feet if he doesn’t fall in line and do exactly as she says.


28.  Puppy Stomping

“Fapping to prepubescent Asian girls who are stomping little puppies until their internal organs come out of their mouths, and assorted other delightful things involving animal and child cruelty.”


29. Something About This Feels Wrog

“I have posted about this before, but guys with Asperger’s syndrome turn me on incredibly.

There is something so sweetly gentle and innocent about them that just makes me want to… DEFILE them.”


30. Crushing

“Crushing and crush fetishes. Specifically the act of crushing small animals like kittens and rodents, and insects.

It’s repulsive and everything I hate about the world all summed up into someone’s gross pleasure.

I’ve seen softer versions of it like smashing up fruit or things like grapes but what the fuck is that? How can you get off to something like an innocent creature getting smashed away? And no you don’t need to explain, you’re gross.”
