5 Examples Of Fetishes Considered Disgusting
Everyone is aroused by something. But sexual preferences, desires, and fantasies are very personal and individualistic. We all get turned on by different stimuli, but it's a fetish when we can't climax without a particular stimulus. Not long ago, fetishes were considered taboo, but they have become quite mainstream in today’s world. Something that you find gross may turn on someone else. So, there are many ways people get sexually excited – from feet to farts; it’s an extensive list. Some of these are semi-normative, but then there’s the weird, disgusting stuff.
Let’s talk about the 5 most disturbing and disgusting fetishes out there. However, before we do that, let’s talk about what a fetish is.
What Is A Fetish?
A fetish is a very specific requirement, either based on psychology or a sensation necessary for an individual’s sexual arousal and enjoyment. Different things can evolve into a fetish like:
- Adamant objects such as high heels
- Specific materials like latex, leather, vinyl
- Certain body parts like feet or breasts
- Specific types of partners
- Various patterns and behaviors
A true fetish is when a behavior or object is required for sexual arousal, and the individual with the fetish most likely wouldn’t be able to experience sexual arousal without it. So a fetish is any object or situation that you need to think about or interact with in some way in order to achieve climax.
As psychologist and sexologist Denise Renye says, a fetish is typically referred to as a behavior without which someone cannot get aroused.
Another term that is very closely related to fetish is kink. Many people use the two terms interchangeably, but they’re not the same.
What Is A Kink?
The best way to define a kink is that it is an intimate practice involving a non-fantasy concept, situation, or relationship style. This interest could be sexual in nature, but that is not always the case.
You can also have a kink where the interest comes from some sort of emotional, mental, and even nonsexual physical pleasure. A good example of this is pet play. Other examples of kink include spanking, flogging, submission, role play, and sensory deprivation.
Difference Between Kink And Fetish
Kink is an umbrella term that encompasses all alternative sexual interests. Basically, anything that’s outside the more common, mainstream forms of sexual activity. This mainly involves all aspects of BDSM, but it also includes things like polyamory, group play, cuckolding, pony play, littles, and much more.
The term fetish actually has a medical definition. In the medical background, it will vary a little bit depending on what diagnostic manual and what version of that manual you are using. For example, in the versus the , there will be some differences between those two.
Generally speaking, in a medical context, the term fetish refers to a sexual fixation with a non-genital body part or a non-human object. As stated above, some really common fetishes include clothing, shoes, leather, latex, and feet. However, we can’t just stick to the medical definition, which is only non-human objects and non-genital body parts. Fetishes expand to more activities and situations.
The main barrier between a kink and a fetish is that a fetish is inherently sexual and linked to someone’s sexual arousal. Whereas a kink can be sexual, that is not always the case for everyone. Even if you do have a kink that is sexual for you, that doesn’t necessarily always go into fetish territory.
For example, you may really enjoy over-the-knee spanking, and it may be sexually arousing for you either because the position is physically or mentally stimulating, so it results in sexual pleasure. However, it might not be something you need to achieve arousal and something you actively fantasize about.
Top 5 Most Disgusting Fetishes
The number of fetishes is unlimited. From head to toe, there is not a single spot on the body, and from hats to shoes, there is no fold in a garment that cannot trigger a fetishistic pleasure. Did you know that over 500 sexual fetishes have been discovered so far? While we can’t list them all here, let’s talk about the most disgusting ones. Get ready to get your mind blown!
Here are five fetishes considered disgusting:
- Eproctophilia (Fart Fetish)
Eproctophilia is a fetish of flatulence. People with this fetish have sexual fantasies and urges about farts. Farting is a natural bodily function but what’s not so natural is to derive sexual pleasure from it. But here’s the thing: if someone likes something like this, what’s wrong with that? They’re not hurting anyone by being turned on by a fart. Although incredibly rare, you might be the unlucky one whose other half’s burning fantasy is being pinned down as you let one rip directly in their face.
- Mechanophilia (Machines Fetish)
People with this fetish are sexually attracted to machines such as cars, airplanes, helicopters, etc. Yup, you read that right. These people are actually sexually aroused by machines and have sex with machines. In the same way, we are attracted to others within the human race, a car’s exhaust pipe is seen as fair game to these sexual misfits. Listen, it’s a car and doesn’t need to give consent because it’s not a living thing. So, it’s not wrong? However, in many countries, this fetish is considered a crime, and the perpetrator is often charged as a sex offender.
- Sploshing (Wet and Messy Fetish)
Sploshing is smearing the body with wet and messy substances. This fetish is also known as a wet and messy (WAM) fetish. People with this kind of fetish need to get covered in messy substances to get aroused. Most of the time, these substances are edibles like honey, jam, oil, gravy, etc. We’ve all heard of whipped cream, chocolate, and peanut butter in sex, but some people take it too far. They just want to be smothered and smeared with food. From milk, honey, and gravy to pasta, they want it all!
For such people, sex and food go hand in hand. When you take someone out for a date and have a yummy dinner, why not take it further into the bedroom? It is all about using food as a sensation play. You enjoy the feeling of food and liquids all over you and how they combine and feel on the skin. It’s decadent, squishy, silly, sticky, playful, and sensual. There’s something about sploshing that many find sexy. Sploshing also turns many people on because it kind of feels naughty in a very basic, childlike way. You might not believe this, but WAM is one of the most common fetishes.
- Urolagnia (Pee Fetish)
Urolagnia is getting sexual pleasure from sight or thought of urine and urination. Giving, receiving, or taking a pee turns on people who have a lust for urine. You might think it’s gross, but for many, it is the only way they can reach the big O.
Urolagnia is also known as the golden shower. If you’ve ever watched Sex and the City, you might have heard this term before. In one of the episodes on the show, Carrie’s boyfriend requests her a golden shower. While urolagnia is not much talked about in the mainstream media, it was a big moment for the fetishists. This bizarre fetish is becoming increasingly popular. Pissing is not a well-known fetish, but there’s a growing community of people who get off on it.
- Coprophilia (Poop Fetish)
Coprophilia is a fetish where people derive sexual pleasure from feces. It is also known as a scat fetish. It is one of the freakiest and most taboo of all kinks. However, for many, poop is the ultimate sexual thrill. Scat fetishists incorporate poop into sex in different ways, like touching, consuming, or playing with poop. Sometimes people with this fetish also like to watch their partner take a dump. This is an extreme fetish, so only a few people are really into it.
Now you must be thinking, how on earth can people derive pleasure from such things? What causes them to have such weird and disgusting fantasies? Let’s tell you!
What Causes Fetishes?
Why are some people into poop? How does someone get off by pissing? As stated before, a fetish is a sexual attraction to a body part, object, situation, or behavior. It is not preference or fondness but a requirement. People need the object of desire present in reality or fantasy to get sexual gratification. So, if you can’t get it up or get it off without thinking or doing something, that’s a fetish. But what causes it?
Let’s discuss a few common causes of fetish:
- Divergent Thinking
The human mind is extraordinary. It makes us think and question the ordinary. So, many start questioning the ‘traditional,’ socially acceptable sex. They start experimenting and trying out new things. While some things may be sexually more pleasing, others are not. And then they find one thing that can arouse them anywhere, anytime. Thus, divergent thinking in sex can lead you to discover different motives and impulses that develop into a fetish.
- Early Childhood Conditioning
Associating an object with a strong sexual arousal or gratification at an early age can lead to a fetish. Kids exposed to sexual content at a young age often develop such associations. For example, someone who has grown up watching from a young age becomes addicted to porn which develops into a porn fetish.
Fetishes are also formed when people can’t access traditional outlets for sexual arousal because of self-doubt, shame, embarrassment, and/or fear. When people miss out on socially acceptable practices of sexual gratification, they compensate for the lack using other means. For example, if someone is extensively bullied for their looks, they might get off with inanimate objects that won’t intimidate or reject them.
Why Is A Fetish Unhealthy?
You have to realize how common fetishes are. One in six people have a fetish, and about one in three people have actually tried. So, having a fetish is not unusual or something to be embarrassed about. In fact, it is quite natural. From hormones to early childhood experiences, there can be many reasons why someone develops a fetish. And, sometimes, we just like what we like!
So, having a fetish is not a cause for concern. Believe it or not, people who engage in fetishism and unique sexual acts tend to be healthier, more well-adjusted, and less likely to be diagnosed with anxiety.
However, it is extremely unhealthy when a fetish is all you can think about. People limit themselves when they refuse to expand their repertoire and isolate the fetish. Moreover, such people also limit their partners from enjoying and trying different sexual experiences.\
We are not saying that you should completely avoid the trigger but incorporate some of what you like and what your partner likes. Remember, there are over 500 fetishes, most of which are fine as long as it is consensual and you are not hurting anybody.
There are hundreds of fetishes in the world. Some we know of, but many we don’t. There is an ongoing investigation and research about fetishes, like what causes them, how to control them, etc. There’s a huge misconception that a fetish is a disorder that needs to be cured.
Fetishes are as natural as appetite; the actual deviation from the norm is the obsession with limiting sexual desire and expression. The urge to explore your sexual desires and fantasies is a natural human trait. So, fetishes are quite normal, and having one is nothing to feel embarrassed of.
So, no judgments, even if people are into some super weird, disturbing, and disgusting stuff like poop, piss, and fart fetish. Tbh, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Once you dive deep into the world of fetishes, you will discover that it can get even more disgusting.
Let’s save the rest for another day!
