Farting is an inevitable part of life. However, from an early age, we are taught that it’s a source of shame and embarrassment. Letting one off can at best inspire humor, and, at worst, prompt anyone in your vicinity to move to escape the unpleasant smell.
But for a small group of people, it can inspire sexual arousal. Those who fall into this category are said to have a fart fetish.
Check out the video below to learn everything you need to know about this sexual quirk:
Farting on demand for your partner isn’t something that most people can admit to doing, let alone say that they enjoy. For many, it would be a dealbreaker in a fledgling relationship. As a result, those with a fart fetish don’t have it easy when it comes to getting off on it.
To shed light on this often misunderstood and mocked fetish, three men have opened up to Vice about what it’s like to get turned on by farts. They’ve also revealed what their wildest fantasies are, so brace yourself for a windy ride…
Oh, and in case you were wondering having a fart fetish is also known as eproctophilia.
There is at least one upside to having a fart fetish, however. A 2014 study from the University of Exeter found that a compound found in farts, hydrogen sulphide, has the potential to protect cells which are usually damaged by diseases including cancer.
