Have you ever wondered what the weirdest kink is? We’ve not only pondered but delved into it, including the fascinating fetish of Agalmatophilia and Timophilia.
Although… You’d rather leave this out of your browser history. Actually, the viewer discretion of our site is implied, but for this one, you should also refrain from eating. Below is a list of the top ten weirdest kinks of all time. No kink should ever be shamed, but some of them are just hard to believe. Also, an important note, we’re listing only bizarre sexual preferences in no particular order, leaving actual disorders (like necrophilia) out of it. The main difference between kinks and disorders is that a sexual disorder has a negative impact on your life, is dangerous or illegal. For example, some people are fascinated with holes (Trypophilia) and they love watching them, but it turns into a disorder when they start making them in their bodies.
Now, let’s dive into the top ten weirdest kinks of all time starting with Agalmatophilia and Timophilia.
1 – Agalmatophilia
“Ágalma” means “statue”, therefore it’s explained as a love for statues, dolls or mannequins. Relatively harmless until someone tries to hump a mannequin in the middle of a store or loses a Barbie doll… somewhere. It’s one of the sexual fantasies that starts early in life when you wish for your favourite doll to come to life, but it later turns sexual. Technically, it’s not a disorder, but some people go as far as actually falling in love with various statues, which is a mental illness.
2 – Timophilia
Timophilia is a harmless and intriguing kink, it means being attracted to money, gold or wealth in general. And no, don’t go as far as a black widow syndrome. Some people will masturbate using money or other riches (please, clean them first), some will simply throw them on the bed before engaging in sexual activites. Timophilia is a peculiar fascination that might make you wonder if this is what Scrooge McDuck had in mind beyond his wealth.
3 – Climacophilia
This fetish means experiencing sexual gratitude from falling down the stairs or watching someone fall down the stairs. Its name comes from climacophobia, which means a fear of climbing or of stairs and ladders. The word klîmax means “stairs” or “ladder” in Greek, hence the definition. Specialists are still not sure whether it’s a disorder or just an odd kink, but we decided it should make the list. It’s incredibly uncommon, to the point where you may only hear it being mentioned as a joke, but apparently, these people exist.
4 – Lithophilia
The etymology of this kink is once again coming from Greek, where the word líthos means “stones”. Therefore the name can be translated to the love for stones, sounds adorable… Until you think about what it means. Yes, this fetish can be a tad harmful if its practitioners go too hard.
5 – Oculolinctus
All right, let’s break this down. “Oculus” means “eye”in Latin, whereas “linctus” can be translated as “licked”. Unfortunately, you’re correct, this fetish is about receiving sexual pleasure from licking someone’s eyeballs, or the other way around. Maybe there are worse kinks around, but we can’t help but wonder how one learns about having this one.
6 – Emetophilia
In Greek “emeto” means “vomit”. Some people get sexually aroused by puking, watching others puke or getting puked on (also known as a Roman shower). A part of them will even go as far as actually eating their partner’s vomit, for example after going to a restaurant for a nice meal together.
7 – Actirasty Fetish
This fetish is quite pleasant and not scary at all, which cannot be said about most on this list. It means being aroused by rays of sun. It can be as simple as having sex while watching a sunset. Just don’t stay in the sun for too long!
8 – Mechanophilia (mechaphilia)
To put it simply, it’s a sexual attraction to transportation machines, it starts with bracelets, through cars and to extremes like planes. For some enthusiasts of this practice it’s enough to masturbate sitting in or on said machine, some go further, using its various holes and/or protruding parts.
9 – Spectrophilia (Phasmophilia)
This is an attraction to ghosts, spirits and other similar beings. It can be fulfilled by role-play scenarios or watching ghost encounter videos. Well, we always thought the debate was whether or not ghosts are real, not sexy!
10 – Dacryphilia
The word comes from a Greek translation of “tears” which is “dacry”. It means being aroused by tears or sobbing. Some people think just the action of crying is attractive, while for some is the idea of their partner being emotionally vulnerable around them.
