Stocking fetishism

Stocking fetishism is a sexual fetish relating to women's stockings. Stocking fetishists may particularly find sexual partners clothed in sheer nylon or silk stockings to be sexually stimulating, or find the act of a person donning or removing a pair of stockings arousing. This can also be related to pantyhose fetishism or transvestic fetishism. Some men find it arousing to collect and wear stockings,panties and suspender belts sometimes hidden under a pair of trousers.

Spandex fetishism

Spandex fetishism is a fetishistic attraction to people wearing stretch fabrics or, in certain cases, to the garments themselves.

Many people refer to spandex fetishism as Lycra fetishism, Lycra being INVISTA's trademark for their own brand of spandex fabric.

Smoking fetishism (Capnolagnia)

Cigarette fetish; cigar fetish

Smoking fetishism ("capnolagnia") is a sexual fetish based on the sight or image of a person smoking cigarettes or cigars. The smoker is commonly female, since most smoking fetishists are heterosexual males. For many of them, the fetish appears to have had its roots in early childhood. Some smoking fetishists merely observe, while others become personally involved with smokers. Several online vendors cater to the fetish with videos and photos, which often also show explicit sexual acts.

Sexual roleplay

Sexual roleplay is an erotic form of roleplay: it is a sexual behaviour where two or more people act out roles in a sexual fantasy. How seriously this is taken depends on the people involved, and the scenario may be anywhere from simple and makeshift to detailed and elaborate, complete with costumes and a script. Nearly any role could become the base material for an erotic experience, and there is no limit to what objects an individual could consider sexual.

Semen eating (Seminophagia)

Seminophagia is the act of ingesting semen either for erotic gratification, for nutritional value or by accident. Sources of semen are either from human males or male animals. Seminophagia may inevitably happen when oral sex is performed.

In the media

Seminophagia is a subject in pornography and popular media. References to seminophagia include:

Second skin fetishism

The concept of a second skin is common to a range of clothing-related fetishes.

One reason why these materials may be fetishised is that the garment acts as a fetishistic surrogate for the wearer's own skin — a second skin. The material may be regarded as providing a super-stimulus that is more intense than the normal response associated with real skin.

The forms of fetishism related to this concept can be regarded as forming a spectrum, as follows:

Robot fetishism

(ASFR, robosexuality, or technosexuality)

Robot fetishism is a fetishistic attraction to humanoid or non-humanoid robots; also to people acting like robots or people dressed in robot costumes. A less common fantasy involves transformation into a robot. In these ways it is similar to agalmatophilia, which involves attraction to or transformation into statues or mannequins.[1]

Robot fetishism can be viewed as a form of erotic anthropomorphism.[1] When transformation or roleplaying is involved it can be thought of as a form of erotic objectification.[1][2]


Reflectoporn is a term used to describe a form of exhibitionism[1] in which a man or woman strips and then takes a photograph of an object with a reflective surface in such a way that his or her naked body can be seen in the reflection. The photograph is then posted in a public forum. The instance generally credited with starting the trend involved a man selling a kettle on eBay, featuring a photograph where his naked body is clearly visible[2].

Pregnancy fetishism (maiesiophilia)

(Pregnant sex)

Pregnancy fetishism (also known as maiesiophilia[1] or maieusophoria) is a term used to describe the contexts in which pregnancy is seen by individuals[2] and cultures as an erotic phenomena. It may include the sexual attraction for women who are pregnant or appear pregnant, the attraction to lactation, or an attraction for the stages of pregnancy such as impregnation or giving birth.[3]
