List of paraphilias

From MAP Wiki

This list of paraphilias is inspired by the Wikipedia paraphilia list[1] and includes content from several sources that were previously used by members of paraphiliac communities[2][3][4]. This list is meant to respond to a need for a resource that is inclusive of nonsexual paraphilias and free of medicalizing and stigmatizing language.

Paraphilias are divided into kinks (attractions to activities), fetishes (attractions to objects and body parts), and attractions to beings. All other divisions and categories, given in this article, are approximate and made up by the author for simplicity of classification.


This category includes attractions to activities.

  1. List of paraphilias, Wikpedia.
  2. A "Comprehensive" List of Paraphilias. 547 Entries. Just pick a letter and run with it. Imgur.
  3. Corrected List of Philias, AlphaDictionary.
  4. Fetish Definitions,
  5. Unlike with biastophilia, consent is one of the components of the attraction. If you seek consensual rape roleplay not only for ethical reasons, but because consent excites you, you are an agonophile.
  6. Algolagnia, Wikipedia.
  7. There's nothing in the word itself that would suggest rape. I'd use it for just sexual cannibalism. But oh well.
  8. It is unclear whether this is the name of the attraction or the act.
  9. While most biastophiles express their attraction through consensual roleplay, unlike with agonophilia, consent is not a component of the attraction, a biastophile is attracted to the lack of it. If you don't feel additionally excited by the fact that your rape roleplay partner consented to you, but just make your sex life consensual for ethical reasons, you are a biastophile.
  10. Shares name with the kink for being angry or upset.
  11. Shares name with the kink for rabies.
  12. Sometimes defined as undressing in public
  13. Unintentionally shares name with the fetish for unusual anatomy.
  14. This does not have to refer to disasters, trivial accidents like breaking a glass are included
  15. Most definitions also include lack of consent. However, it may not be inherent to the attraction.
  16. Many definitions include sexual topics and sexual words. This may not be inherent to the attraction.
  17. This may sound more like a sex act than an attraction, but judging by the form of the word, it is an attraction to the process, not personal engagement with the process.
  18. Again, attraction to the action, not doing the action.
  19. Same as the above
  20. Same as the above number 2.
  21. "Obscene phone calls" in some definitions, especially if the term is called "Telephone scatologia".
  22. Unintentionally shares name with the grooming kink.
  23. In some definitions, gynelophilia specifically refers to pubic hair, and hirsutophilia specifically refers to armpit hair, but it's unclear
  24. Alternatively called phallophilia, however as this term is also defined as just attraction to penises, which is consistent with the literal translation, it is not listed here
  25. Arguably, a normative preference.
  26. Arguably, a normative preference.
  27. There is a difference between these terms: armor/padding, jocks/cups, and jersey/shorts /uniform accordingly.
  28. This attraction is typically applied to younger men.
  29. Sometimes used synonymously with nepiophilia
  30. Just like with transvestism, it is possible that this action does not have any paraphiliac motivations. Some people don't "dress their age" for political reasons, due to age dysphoria, or just because this is their style. This word should be used with caution.
  31. Snakes in some sources
  32. "Aimomixiaphilia" is spelled "amiomixiaphilia" on This is a typo, "αιμομιξία" is "incest" in Greek.
  33. Typically, attraction of a father.
  34. Literal meaning: "attraction to imitation of men". Older resources, such as the Imgur list, define it as both an attraction to female crossdressers (drag kings) and trans men. Wikipedia editors chose to leave only the second half of the definition. We choose the opposite route, since trans men are not imitating men, but are men themselves.
  35. Prefix auto- can be added to any other paraphilia. Typically it has two meanings: 1) being attracted to yourself literally, whether for some features you have or some features you fantasize about having (also called "erotic target identity inversion"), 2) having a reverse paraphilia, where you are the target of some action instead of the doer (e.g. biastophilia - attraction to raping, autobiastophilia - attraction to being raped).
  36. Literal meaning: "attraction to imitation of women". Older resources, such as the Imgur list, define it as both an attraction to male crossdressers (drag queens) and trans women. Wikipedia editors chose to leave only the second half of the definition. We choose the opposite route, since trans women are not imitating women, but are women themselves.
  37. May require a new term, since the word "hermaphrodite" in reference to intersex people is outdated and largely considered offensive
  38. Prefix necro- can be added to other attractions, e.g. necrozoophilia for dead animals
  39. May require a separate term, as the comparison seems disrespectful.
  40. This label is also used to pathologize nonparaphiliac self expression of trans people.
  41. People who find animals attractive, but do not fantasize about having sex with them, are often forced to identify with this label instead of "zoophile". In reality faunoiphilia is under the general zoo umbrella.
  42. A sadistic attraction to animals, "zoo BDSM". An identity under the zoo umbrella with additional abuse stigma attached.
