Fetishes can be strange and the can be downright gross in some aspects but not all fetishes fall into this category. Some fetishes are just too funny to be taken seriously by the rest of society but they do beg to be noticed on one level or another. Now, these are not fetishes that can really be acted upon in most cases because of the nature of them. Instead, they are more fantastical and even humorous in one aspect or another. Below are three fetishes that border on fantasy and humor rather than a real fetish that can be acted upon.
Spectrophilia – Being Attracted to Ghosts One of the oldest known fetishes that are humorous in nature is being attracted to ghosts. Now there are sexual ghosts that go by two different names. The first is the succubus who is a female ghost that has sex with male victims and steals their soul. The second is the incubus and that is the male version of the succubus. For centuries men and women have dreamed of being taken by either a succubus or an incubus and they seek them out wherever and whenever they can. Those who have this fetish actually believe that they are having a sexual encounter with a real ghost. This makes the used panty fetish seem pretty tame in comparison.
Exophelia – Attraction to Aliens from Other Planets Do you believe that we have been visited by entities from another planet and that they come down to earth specifically to have sex with you and you like it? Then you may be considered an exophile. These are people who believe that there is life on other planets that want to come to Earth to mate with the inhabitants of this planet. Now, most exophiles do not say that they have actually had sex with aliens, although some do, they just wish that it would happen. While there is still debate raging regarding the actual existence of alien life forms, at least if they do show up on our planet at some time they won’t be lacking in sexual partners.
Agalmatophilia– A Fetish for Statues The final humorous fetish is agalmatophilia which is a fetish for statues. This is not the statues that are sitting on the top of your mother’s mantle, not at all. These people would be more inclined to see what is under the Statue of Liberty’s dress or would like to remove the fig leaves off the ancient Roman statues. This can also include other types of large inanimate objects that bear a resemblance to humans such as mannequins and other types of dolls. This fetish actually created an entire genre of dolls that are made to look and feel like real people.
While this article does poke a little fun at some of the stranger fetishes, it has to be said that having fetishes is all in the mind of the person who has them. Nobody can really determine what turns another person on and what rings their bell. The only way a fetish is too extreme is when it hurts a person who does not want to feel pain or when it puts another person in mortal danger. These fetishes are fun in nature and do not do anything to hurt others in any way.
