Quirky Sex Guide - Fetishes and Quirky Sexual Practices
A quick-and-easy guide to some quirky sexual practices
Amputees and Amputation
Amputee fetishists are turned on by partners who are missing a limb,
or have had various body parts amputated. The medical name for this
is acrotomophilia. A similar and altogether more dangerous fetish
is apotemnophilia, which is arousal caused by self-amputation.
This involves choking or suffocating oneself in order to achieve
sexual pleasure. Most often performed during masturbation, however
it can be part of sexual play between lovers. This fetish became
well known after INXS singer Michael Hutchence died in circumstances
which suggested he had been taking part in this activity, officially
called asphyxiophilia. The coroner, however, ruled he had committed
Also known as auxilliary intercourse, bagpiping involves
rubbing the penis back and forth in the armpit.
Balloons and Inflatables
"Looners" enjoy the feel of rubber, and enjoy blowing
up and popping balloons and other inflatable objects. Women may
insert long thin balloons into their vaginas and then pop them.

Bondage and Discipline,
Sado-Masochism, Female Domination (Femdom)
All these fetishes involve power plays, dominance and submission,
and - often - pain. People who enjoy bondage are aroused by being
tied up, either by ropes or leather. This is usually accompanied
by the "discipline" part, where lovers play at being either
master or slave, "top" or "bottom". Sado-Masochism
can also be a part of bondage and discipline. In this role play
humiliation and safe forms of sexual torture are used to induce
orgasm. Sadists gain pleasure from inflicting pain, masochists from
receiving it. Female Domination is a common aspect of the BDSM scene;
this is where a woman is in control, and may inflict pain on her
lover. See also spanking, forced feminization.
Blood play and Vampirism
Blood fetishists are aroused by the sight of blood, and may cut
themselves or a partner during sex. Sexual vampires may be turned
on by tasting or drinking this blood. Blood play can also involve
scratching, abrasion, piercing and even leeches. It is something
of a dangerous fetish; not only is there the danger of physical
harm and blood loss, there is also the threat of contracting HIV
through unsafe practices involving blood. Blood play enthusiasts
have to be scrupulously careful when practising their fetish. More

Clown fetishists enjoy looking at naked people with clown makeup,
or they like to have sex with those dressed as clowns.

Exhibitionism and Flashing
This may involve being naked in public, being sexually aroused in
public, or having sex in public places. Others are aroused by exhibitionists
- watching others be nude in public. Exhibitionism has long been
frowned upon and is often a criminal act, however in some cases
the intent behind the nudity can make all the difference. In recent
times, porn has embraced the idea of public flashing by women at
parties and celebrations such as Mardi Gras.
Fisting involves inserting the entire hand into the vagina or anus.
In the US, strange obscenity laws forbid porn creators to film fisting
using the thumb, however four fingers is OK.
Food Play and Sploshing
Arousal resulting from being covered with food such as Baked Beans
or cream. A less extreme version of this involves using food as
a sex toy, or eating things off a lover's body.

These people are turned on by looking at or feeling a lover's feet,
ankles and toes. Foot fetishists may enjoy being stimulated by their
lover's feet rather than by their hands.
A male fetish, this involves being forced to dress in overly feminine
clothes and wear makeup. This usually occurs under the control of
a dominatrix. This fetish puts the man in touch with his female
side in a way which may ordinarily be unavailable to him. See also
Hypnosis and Trance
Hynosis fetishists are turned on by being hypnotised, or hypnotising
another person. Once in a trance, the person involved is induced
to perform sexual acts. The appeal here is having control over another
person, or losing control.

Involves wearing diapers (nappies), sucking dummies, drinking from
bottles, and generally pretending to be a baby. Usually requires
a lover to play "parent" who caters to the "baby".
Wetting the diaper is often part of the fetish. More info at Understanding
Panties and Pantyhose
Some people get turned on by the sight of a woman's panties, or
even the smell of them. Pantihose fetish is similar, although this
fetish often requires ripping open of the pantihose.
Plushies and Furries
Plushies are sexually aroused by plush toys. They may use the toys
as a sex object, or invest them with the personality of a real-life
lover. Furries are those who are aroused by being dressed up in
animal costumes. More info at alt.sex.plushies

Rubber and Latex
Rubber fetishists enjoy the feel of rubber on their skin, and subsequently
wear rubber or latex clothing to enhance arousal.

Capnolagnia is the official term for gaining pleasure through watching
other's smoke. Advertisements for smoking have long associated cigarette
use with sexiness. Smoking fetishists take this one step further.

Spanking and Corporal
Spanking is similar to BDSM, in that there's pain involved. In this,
however, the fetish is entirely focused on the idea of being spanked
or whipped, preferably on the buttocks.
Trampling and Crushing
Trampling enthusiasts enjoy being stood on, preferably by heavy
people, or by women wearing high heels. Some enjoy having heavy
weights placed on them. Trampling fetishists become aroused by the
sensation of being squashed. Crushing involves people stepping on
insects, rodents, food or other people. This has been condemned
by many as a cruel practice because it often involves animals.
Watersports and Scat
These fetishists are turned on by bodily excretions - urination
and defecation. Some people like to do it on others, some like to
be the "receivers". Still others are aroused simply by
watching another person urinate or defecate.
