One of the less researched sexual behaviours is stigmatophilia. It is a sexual paraphilia in which an individual derives sexual pleasure and arousal from a partner that is marked in some way. Traditional definitions of stigmatophilia referred to such individuals being sexually aroused by scarring but more recent formulations of stigmatophilia includes those who are sexually aroused by tattoos and piercings i. Stigmatophilia is one of many different eligibility also called stigmatic types of paraphilia.
The partner must not appear to be a proper or likeable person. This is done by choosing a partner who is very diminutive or towering in stature fat or skinny very young paedophilia or very old gerontophilia , disfigured, deformed dysmorphophilia , crippled, stigmatized stigmatophilia , even an amputee acrotomophilia In extreme cases, the paraphilic wants his partner to be from a different species zoophilia or dead necrophilia , or even a dead specimen of a different species necrozoophilia.
Sometimes the paraphilic may want even himself to be deformed he is also one of the partners in love making. In blogs on various fetishes and paraphilias , I have written about a study led by Dr G. Scorolli on the relative prevalence of different fetishes using online fetish forum data. They reported that some of the sites featured references to stigmatophilia including body modification. Brenda Love noted in her book Encyclopedia of Unusual Sex Practices that tattooing was brought back to Europe by sailors who had become fascinated by this art from. While researching this blog, I came across this confession from a male with a tattoo fetish:.
I still am turned on by the idea of being totally covered in ink. I am almost there and I only have a few blank spots left. Before I get more I really want to understand this. I was never abused. I just love having ink, I love getting it, I love the pain, I love the healing, I love looking at it and I love when women touch it. Why am I this way? I am a normal guy and I have a normal sex life, normal relationships etc.
I just picture my entire body being covered in tattoos…Sometimes I look at my own ink in the mirror etc. The more I get the happier I am. I just want to know, what would cause this? Where do fetishes come from? He also displays what Dr. Her paper examined two groups within the most elite realm of tattooing i. Whilst not concentrating on the fetishistic element, many of her observations may apply to those with tattoo fetishes.
However, she does note that:. Comparatively little is known about intimate body piercing or its relevance to human behaviour. Charles Moser and his colleagues published a paper in a issue of Journal of Psychology and Human Sexuality on reasons for nipple piercing among participants. The main reasons for nipple piercing were sexual responsiveness and sexual interest.
More recently, Professor Carol Caliendo and her colleagues carried out some research on intimate body piercings that they published in a issue of the Journal of Advanced Nursing. They surveyed a convenience sample of intimately pierced individuals 63 women and 83 men across 29 US states.
Compared to the general US population those with sexual piercings were ificantly younger, less ethnically diverse, better educated, less likely to be married, more often homosexual or bisexual and they initiated sexual activity at a younger age. The average age for first nipple piercing was 25 years, and for genital piercing was 27 years.
Their reasons for getting the piercings were uniqueness, self-expression and sexual expression. Arguably, one of the best papers on motivations for tattooing and body piercing was published by Dr. Silke Wohlrab and colleagues in a issue of the journal Body Image. They established ten broad motivational , comprising motivations for getting tattooed and body pierced. This they hoped would serve as a reference in future research in the area. The ten were: i beauty, art, and fashion, ii individuality, iii personal narratives, iv physical endurance, v group affiliations and commitment, vi resistance, vii spirituality and cultural tradition, viii addiction , ix sexual motivations, and x no specific reasons e.
