According to sexologist Mamen Jiménez, an unusual sexual practice, or a behavior in which the source of arousal and pleasure lies in objects, behaviors or contexts that are out of the norm, are known as philias.
A recent article addressed the subject. This time, it is extended with some very curious and rare ones, and others that surely have been practiced without knowing their name. Here I leave this list to encourage you to enjoy a sexual life #sinrecato:
Acomoclitism: excitement for genitals without any hair.
Agrexophilia: pleasure in knowing that you are listened to while having sex.
Alorgasmia: the excitement produced by fantasizing about someone other than one’s partner while in the act.
Alosexual: experiencing sexual attraction to other tendencies, regardless of one’s sexual identity, whether heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual.
Amiquesis: pleasure in scratching one’s partner during sex.
Amomaxia: excitement when having sex in a parked car.
Basoexia: excitement, including orgasms, produced only by kissing.
Booty call: free sex, without commitments and without claims, with the only objective of feeling pleasure.
Capnolagnia: excitement at the sight of a person smoking.
Dacryphilia: sexual pleasure in seeing another person cry.
Facesitting: the act of sitting on your partner’s face.
Flatophilia: excitement by the smell of a partner’s flatulence or one’s own.
Phonophilia: pleasure and need to hear obscene words during sex.
Foreplay: includes kissing, caressing, oral sex and all foreplay before climaxing.
Harpaxophilia: excitement at being robbed or mugged.
Hypnophilia: excitement when watching sleeping people.
Heteroflexibles: may be confused with bisexual, which is a person who is attracted to both male and female genders. Also called flexisexual or bicurious. Although they are heterosexual, they may be attracted at some point to someone of the same sex.
Karezza: technique that allows the recovery of passion and eroticism avoiding climax. It is based on prolonged physical encounters in which anything is done to find satisfaction except orgasm.
Knismolagnia: another strange name for a philia that consists of achieving arousal by tickling or being tickled.
Kokigami: it is a Japanese erotic game that originates from the Japanese aristocracy of the 7th century and consists of wrapping your penis in a paper costume and showing it to your partner so that they discover “the surprise”. The name comes from koki, which means handkerchief that Japanese actors wrap around their waist to cover their genitals, and gami, which means paper.
Morphophilia: attraction to people with special characteristics, for example: large breasts, dark skin, thick lips, etc.
Oculophilia: attraction to other people’s eyes.
Oculolinctus: pleasure, or arousal, from licking your partner’s eyes. Another Japanese fad.
Oming, or orgasmic meditation: this is a practice in which the upper left side of the clitoris is stimulated for 13 minutes. Some women claim that the ecstasy can last up to two days.
Precop: maybe this word does not say much, but we actually all know it: “friend with rights or benefits”. It is having sexual relations without a sentimental relationship.
Pygmalionism: attraction to statues or mannequins.
Retifism: fetishism for shoes, caressing them, licking them, smelling them.
Sex coach: the world of coaching has expanded to the sexual field and it is now very normal for some couples to hire a sex coach, who gives them tools to improve and eroticize their life as a couple. Some do it remotely, but others do it in real time, on the spot.
Spanking: it is a form of sexual expression in which both partners enjoy spanking during sex. They may use hands or other elements and, of course, it is a practice in which both are in agreement.
All of this cannot be considered good or bad in a categorical way. They could still be alternatives for couples to get out of the routine, or out of that sexual comfort zone, and create more exciting, novel scenarios and thus enjoy the most in each encounter.
