There are tons of common fetishes 😉😋😗 out there that might seem strange, but really, they aren't. If you are worried that your common sexual fetish is too weird 😵 to reveal to your friends (or even your partner 💑), don't worry! I've got the top common fetishes that might seem a little strange, but truthfully, you aren't alone if this is what gets you off! 💓 💖 💘
1. Anililagnia, Aka an Attraction to Much Older Women
This one looks like it would be weird, right? This is actually one of the most common fetishes out there. Anililagnia is an attraction for older women – usually women who are much older than yourself. There are tons of guys (and girls!) who find older women attractive and seek them out. So if you have a thing for older women then Anililagnia is one of your fetishes!
2. Pygophilia, Aka Sexual Excitement Caused by Butts
Are you obsessed with butts? Do the buttocks really appeal to you sexually? That's what Pygophilia is all about! This common fetish is actually not that weird or strange. In fact, I think that most people have this particular fetish somewhere inside of them! Tons of men and women go gaga for JLo and Kim Kardashian's ample behinds, so it's definitely not strange!
3. Trichophilia, Aka Arousal Inspired by Hair
Trichophilia is a sexual fetish where a person is aroused by hair. It typically refers to the hair on the head but can include chest hair or other hair on the body. This sexual fetish is common in both men and women. For example, men might like the feel of long, silky hair on their body and a woman might enjoy the feel of a man's stubble. Do you think you could be a trichophiliac?
4. Katoptronophilia, Aka a Desire to Have Sex in Front of a Mirror
I think a lot of people can identify with this, right? In fact, I think a lot of us may have hints of this fetish – you may not want to watch yourself in a mirror all the time, but occasionally, it's fun, sexy, and kind of kinky, right?
5. Knismolagnia, Aka an Arousal to Being Tickled
There are so many sexual fetishes tied to tickling! If you enjoy being tickled, then you have Knismolagnia, and you have my eternal awe because when someone tickles me, it just makes me feel like I'm about to pee my pants.
6. Pteronphilia, Aka an Arousal to Being Tickled by Feathers
Other people love specifically being tickled by feathers. It's light, teasing, a little maddening, and that's part of the arousal and the attraction. I've never even thought of trying this, but I can see how it might feel really cool over your erogenous zones.
7. Titillagnia, Aka a Compulsion to Tickle Other People
Now, if you have this fetish, then you ought to look for someone with one or both of the previous fetishes because that would be a match made in heaven, right? People with Titillagnia (how titillating!) get off on tickling their partners – with or without feathers, I imagine.
8. Balloon Fetishism, Aka Getting off on Balloons
You hear about this fetish on TV and in movies, usually as the punchline of a joke. It's no laughing matter to the people who are aroused by balloons, though. This fetish takes many forms. For example, someone might like playing with the balloon itself, and stretching the latex to its limit. Others like blowing up balloons until they pop. Still others like their partners to sit on the balloons and pop them. In many cases, the arousal aspect has to do with the anticipation of waiting for the balloon to burst.
9. Voyeurism, Aka a Desire to Spy on Other People for Sexual Arousal and Gratification
Personally, I think that everyone has this common fetish, but they just don't want to admit it. Voyeurism is basically a person getting aroused from looking at naked bodies or other people having sex. If everyone didn't have at least a little voyeurism as a common fetish, then why would we have porn?
10. Exhibitionism, Aka a Need to Display Your Bits in Public
We all hear stories about pervs who do this, but exhibitionism isn't inherently perverted or dirty. People enjoy doing this with their partners or crushes. They get a thrill from the taboo aspect of showing things society tells us we shouldn't. Some people do like flashing bits in public, too, and the thrill of getting caught adds to their excitement.
11. Sadism, Aka a Desire to Cause Psychological and Physical Pain to Others
Now, I am not into pain. I stub my toe and I scream bloody murder, so sadism is not a fetish that I could be into, but this is one of the most common fetishes that a lot of people are into. Whether it is whipping, candle wax or harsh biting, sadism is all about pain and inflicting pain on one another for sexual pleasure.
12. Masochism, Aka an Attraction to Experiencing Psychological and Physical Pain
Masochism takes many forms. Masochists are often misunderstood, so if anyone out there enjoys masochism, it'd be great if you could chime in about your experiences!
13. Pictophilia, Aka Arousal from Pornographic/erotic Pictures or Videos
Pictophilia is one of the few fetishes that might help you understand your boyfriend a little better. Men are very visual creatures and this could better explain why. This common fetish is all about having a fascination with pornographic pictures. This actually can be alone or with their partner. So if your guy looks at porn, this could be one of the fetishes that he has!
14. Stigmatophilia, Aka an Attraction to Adornments Such as Piercings and Tattoos
This fetish is actually one of mine (yes, I will admit it!) and it's all about tattoos and piercings. If you have a bunch of tattoos and/or a bunch of piercings, who knows, this could absolutely be one of your fetishes! Who can resist a sexy guy or gal with tattoos?
15. Navel Fetishism, Aka a Deep Love of Belly Buttons
While a belly button might not be something that I'm into, navel fetishism is something that is widely spread. Basically, with this fetish, it's all about sexual arousal from the navel. That isn't that weird, is it?
16. Retifism, Aka Shoe Fetishism
Retifism is quite a common sexual fetish in men that has been portrayed in movies and TV. Remember that SATC episode where Charlotte got free shoes just for trying some on for the salesman? Most shoe fetishists have an affinity for high heels and are drawn to certain features like the height of the heel.
17. Podophilia, Aka Sexual Arousal Caused by Feet
Podophilia, which is also referred to as foot fetishism or foot worship might seem similar to a shoe fetish, but it's not. While both sexual fetishes are more common in men, podophilia is a marked sexual interest in feet and areas of interest vary from foot treatments, the appearance of toes and feet to odor and tactile interaction such as licking or smelling feet.
18. Underwear Fetishism, Aka an Attraction to Seeing or Handling Underwear
Having an underwear fetish isn't referring to owning tons of underwear and lingerie which I'm certainly guilty of! This sexual fetish focuses on observing or handling underwear like panties, pantyhose, bras and certain fabrics. If your partner likes to watch you put on or take off underwear, there might be some harmless fetishism going on!
19. Nasolingus, Aka an Arousal to Suckling Someone's Nose
Well, oral fixations reveal themselves in lots of very interesting ways. Does anyone out there enjoy doing this? I can't say I do, although my puppy, Mad-Eye Moody, definitely enjoys suckling on people's noses. Biting, too.
20. Coulrophilia, Aka a Sexual Attraction to Clowns
Yep. This is a legitimate fetish, and it's much more common than you might think. The culture is actually pretty interesting. Worst match in the world has to be a Coulrophiliac and someone with a fear of clowns.
