Faecal attraction: A beginner’s guide to coprophilia

Coprophilia (also known as coprolagnia) is a paraphilia where people get sexual pleasure from faeces. Sexual excitement typically comes from either (i) watching somebody defecate on somebody else or (ii) they themselves defecating on somebody else. In rare instances, some people may become sexually aroused when they are defecated upon by somebody else. As Dr Judith Milner and colleagues wrote in the 2008 book ’Sexual Deviance: Theory, Assessment and Treatment’:

“Although some authors have defined the focus of coprophilia as the act of elimination (McCary, 1967), others have defined it as the act of consumption of excrement (Allen, 1969). To complicate the definition further, it appears that some individuals may have an interest in eliminating on one’s partner or in playing with the fecal matter. According to Smith (1976), a common analytic interpretation is that the excrement symbolically represents the penis and that the presence of the fecal matter serves as a defense against castration anxiety”

In the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), it is classified under ‘Paraphilia Not Otherwise Specified’ (PNOS) along with other paraphilias such as necrophilia, zoophilia, klismaphilia, and telephone scatophilia. As with all paraphilias in the PNOS category, diagnosis is only made “if the behavior, sexual urges, or fantasies cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning…Fantasies, behaviors, or objects are paraphilic only when they lead to clinically significant distress or impairment (e.g., are obligatory, result in sexual dysfunction, require participation of non-consenting individuals, lead to legal complications, interfere with social relationships)”. The psychologist Dr Tamara Penix (Eastern Michigan University, USA) says there are no data indicating successful treatment of coprophilia.

Surprisingly little scientific research has been carried out on coprophilia, probably because it is so rare. There are certainly pornographic films that include sexual defecation acts (notably some Japanese pornography). Some of these films include coprophiliacs engage in coprophagia (i.e., the eating of faeces and typically referred to more commonly as ‘scat’) which can provides a significant health risk in the form of hepatitis (perhaps another reason as to why the act is so rare). The psychiatrist, Dr Charles Lake (University of Kansa Medical Center, USA) notes that both coprophilia and coprophagia are traditionally considered characteristics of schizophrenia. However, there are case reports in the literature of non-psychotic coprophiliacs with normal intelligence such as one published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy in 1995.

The most infamous copraphiliac was allegedly Adolf Hitler. This was alluded to in a recent 2011 biography of Hitler’s lover Eva Braun by Heike B. Gortemaker. However, other books on Hitler have been more explicit. For instance, Greg Hallet in his chapter ‘Hitler’s Sexuality’ (from his 2008 book ‘Hitler was a British Agent’) wrote:

“Hitler’s close boyhood friend from Linz, August Kubizek, wrote Adolf Hitler, Mein Jugendfreund (My Youth Friend), ‘Adolf did not engage in love affairs or flirtations. He always rejected the coquettish advances of girls or women. Women and girls took an interest in him but he always evaded their endeavours’…During deconstruction, it is customary that the person is sexually abused in the manner which is most embarrassing to that person. In Hitler’s case, he was sodomised, creating a submissive distant respect for homosexuals like his bodyguards and some of his highest-placed leaders. His natural bent was developed into coprophilia (being shat on)…With each deconstruction an embarrassing addiction is developed and filmed. With Hitler it was sadomasochism, coprophilia and homosexuality. That is, he liked to be verbally abused and slapped around, to have his head urinated on, his chest shat on, and to have sex with men”

The few studies that have been carried out have tended to be done on sadomasochist individuals (although even for sadomasochists this appears to be a rare activity for them to engage in). A study led by psychologist Dr Kenneth Sandnabba (Åbo Akademi University, Turku, Finland) and published in the Journal of Sex Research surveyed 164 Finnish male sadomasochists and reported that that 18% of them had engaged in at least one coprophilic act (6% as a masochist, 3% as a sadist, and 9% as both). There was no difference in sexual orientation with 18% of heterosexual sadomasochists and 17% of homosexual sadomasochists having engaged in at least one coprophilic act. The results also showed that the sadomasochists were socially well-adjusted and that their SM behavior was mainly a facilitative aspect of their sexual lives.

In a follow-up study published in the journal Deviant Behavior, Sandnabba and colleagues analysed data from a subset of twelve men from their study of sadomasochists who had also engaged in zoophilic activities. This group was then compared with a control group of sadomasochists from the same data set but who had not engaged in zoophilic activities. Results showed seven out of twelve zoophilic sadomasochists had engaged in coprophilic acts whereas only one in twelve non-zoophilic sadomasochists had engaged in coprophilic acts. In fact, the zoophilic sadomasochists were more likely to engage in a wide range of sexual behaviours including spanking, gagging, biting, urophilia (urinating on or being urinated on for sexual pleasure), fisting, coprophilia, skin branding, and transvestism (i.e., cross-dressing). The authors concluded that zoophilic sadomasochists were more sexually experimental than the non-zoophilic sadomasochistic controls.

An earlier study on a much bigger sample of paraphiliacs also reported that zoophiles appear to engage in many paraphilic behaviours including coprophilia. In their survey of 561 non-incarcerated paraphiliacs seeking treatment, Dr Gene Abel and colleagues found that all of the 14 zoophiles in their sample reported more than one paraphilia and seven of them reported at least five other paraphilas including coprophilia, urophilia, pedophilia, exhibitionism, voyeurism, frotteurism, telephone scatophilia, transvestic fetishism, fetishism, sexual sadism, and/or sexual masochism.

There doesn’t appear to be any consensus as to the origins of these highly unusual paraphilias although (as with most paraphilic behaviour) operant and classical conditioning would appear to play a major role. The following example is a self-report that I found in an online discussion group:

“It all started when I was young. I hated white underwear for some reason and when I wore them I’d be turned on. Eventually it felt odd and good that I urinated in them. I wet my bed for days when I was a young boy and stopped when my parents found out about it. When I was young, I hated bowel movements. It felt gross and stuff. After discovering masturbation, I eased my bowel movements by masturbating. It felt good, and my bowel movements weren’t so gross. I don’t know how it happened but the two finally caught up to each other and I became accustomed to the smell when I masturbated. Everything escalated as time went on, I’ve been in this fetish for a while now – since I was 12 years old. I am 18 now”

The origins of the coprophilic behaviour certainly appear (in this case) to be as a result of both classical and operant conditioning. However, other people suggest different etiological factors may contribute in the development of coprophilia. For instance, in Canada, Dave Hingsburger published a case study of an institutionalized and mentally handicapped man who engaged in coprophilic acts approximately three times a week. It was argued that the cause of the coprophilia was the patient’s maladaptive response to a severely limited institutional environment rather than any behavioural conditioning.

Whatever the origins, it is evident that compared to many other paraphilic behaviours, there is a dearth of empirical and clinical data relating to the acquisition, development, and maintenance of coprophilia.

  1. Stephen Woodward

    hello again

    I was going to ask if there was any research on bad personal hygiene, nose picking or flatulence habit being accounted for as an addictive cycle, self-reinforced owing to value differences between the individual who may associate sweat, faeces or other bodily products with successful completion of activity. I find this one pretty difficult to account for on the whole….! And if Hitler did it, it’s got to be bad…

    • Hi Stephen

      I have a blog that I have already written (but not yet posted) coming out next week on eproctophilia (sexual arousal from flatulence). Not sure I would class it as addictive but it will make an interesting read. I also have a blog coming up on autosarcophagy which covers people eating bits of their own body. Eating snot isn’t featured but lots of other stuff is. Watch this space! Mark

  2. Thank you for providing the information! It’s very useful to me. When I searched poop today, I came across a group who loved to poop on their pants and even have orgy! That’s gross to me : http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Poop-My-Pants-On-Purpose/599623
    Maybe the confessions are helpful for your research?

  3. You might want to review that paragraph about the numbers of people engaging in coprophilia and/or zoophilia. Right now it says that one in 12 non-zoophilic sadomasochists engaged in coprophilic cats. I assume this is a deeply ironic typo. (If not, could you have one of those fecally fetished felines get in touch with my dog? She just LOVES cat scat.)

  4. What course would you recommentd to the parents of an 11 year old male ( above average intelligence with no mental impairment)who, while always having had bowel movements in pants) is now escalating into playing with and ingesting his feces? I found the self-report from the online discussion interesting and wonder what “treatment” would be offered for someone that age.

  5. I believe that the human fascination with crap comes from evolution and our paleolithic ancestors. Back then, starvation was always around the corner. They practiced what is known as second harvest. They would essentially take their crap and eat the parts of it that contained undigested food. This was a necessity to stay alive. Over a million years of doing this, we have evolved to have an intimate relationship with our crap. That’s why when you take a crap, you always look at it with pride and feel a primal bond with it, like you did a good job. So from this alone it is easy to see that every single person has a mild paraphilia. For some people, that primal bond goes a step further and they are able to use it to elevate their sexual arousal to a higher primal level.

    • Interesting said, Jason! But…why can this be related to sexual purpose? Why people could feel sexually aroused with poop?

      • I think it is because sex is strictly a primal urge, and we also have a strong primal relationship with our poop. Some people combine these two primal feelings, along with the sexual pheromones that are in poop, to create an elevated sexual experience. I believe evolution put sexual pheromones in our poop and rectum as a guarantee that sexual intercourse would occur. Since our ancestors didn’t bathe, evolution had to have a way to keep us from refraining from sex as a result of us having an unappealing smell. Your primal sexual urge, combined with sexual pheromones made this possible.

    • Jeffrey Whitaker

      Well said Jason Smith. Interesting theory.

  6. Hi, I am a coprophiliac. I also have fantasised about many other unusual ‘paraphilia.’ In my experience it is, in-fact, a lot harder to find people who *want* to defecate on others (except for money) than people who *want* to be defecated on. Almost all coprophiliacs are also into Urolagnia, but there are many, many more people who are into Urolagnia that would not go near coprophilia. ‘Piss play’ is actually fairly common with fetishists and in BDSM, but far less common than regular S&M activities. Panty pooping/wetting are much more commonly engaged in, presumably because of the reduced risk. Most coprophiliacs are well educated to the potential dangers and, as theorised here, this is the reason very few of us engage in such activity. For many of us, our lives are a sad struggle to find a life partner with similar deviance so that we can indulge our paraphilia.

    For me, I have always been interested in two things sexually,filth, dehumanisation and transformation. I am intelligent, university educated (Psychology and English,) well-adjusted (if somewhat unconventional,) and with a rich social life and many friends. I have never been sexually abused. From a young age, I have gained arousal from bowel movements (not unusual in men, to some degree, due to some degree of prostate stimulation through both bowel and bladder movements) and, from about the age of 12, from smearing myself with and even consuming, my own faeces and urine. The idea of being totally dehumanised, transformed into a toilet, is powerfully erotic for me as is the scent of faeces and urine. Many people that are not coprophiliacs with whom I have talked, have admitted that odours like manure are erotic to them, though they might not necessarily be interested in rolling in/eating manure! I have no interest in consuming anything but human Faeces – the act of one person consciously degrading and transforming me into their toilet is what is erotic. However, with regard to my fantasies related to sensory eroticism, I am turned on by being covered in/rolling in/copulating in manure. Some smells of decay are erotic too, the smell of rubbish in bins and rubbish tips can (sometimes) arouse me sexually. I believe part of this is the degradation-factor, becoming less human, more animal.

    This, in itself, is not unusual. As was mentioned here, there are pheromones in faeces and also in urine, so it is not *completely* strange to be sexually aroused by such things. Likewise (though, for various social reasons – many *very* modern) a *large* number of people are turned on by other human scents, sweaty feet, armpits, farts and so on. For some reasons, farts do not arouse me, though. In the 16th century, the creation of ‘love apples’ was not uncommon by women for their husbands who were going to sea or to war or trade abroad. an apple would be peeled and carried in the arm-pit to absorb the woman’s scent before being gifted to her lover. I have even heard it said that Napoleon once sent his wife a message, ‘home in three days, don’t wash,’ though I can’t verify this, haha!

    When I am done, I get additional pleasure from the simple process of getting clean and sweet smelling once again. I am, by nature, fairly fastidious in my tidiness and cleanliness, so perhaps this is part of the reason for my fetish. It is commonly observed (though not universally true) in the fetish scene, that people often enjoy fetishes which seem contrary to their normal nature and behaviour. The most common example being socially dominant people being sexually submissive and vice-versa, but I have observed contradictions to this rule and, of course, as I’m sure you are aware, dominant and submissive behaviour in human interactions are often far more complicated than this and vary from situation to situation.

    So I personally do not feel these paraphilias are of particular concern. I do not see them as a disease of the mind, necessarily. There are risks, often very serious risks, even in self-coprophagia, but really these can be minimised if one is conscientious and careful. They are arguably no more dangerous than unprotected sex, war or dangerous sports, activities many, many people engage in without being considered mentally ill.

    • Coprophilia is a severe perversion. It is not normal. Heterosexual coprophilia looks even worse and more pervert than homosexual or copropilia associated with animals. It has to be cured. I have that profound perversion from early childhood, even from pre-school age. It was really licentious (heterosexual) and very, very gross. I cure it religiously. Without religion it looks as less probable to cure.

      • I would agree with you if it causes you to become dysfunctional in society. But so can alcohol, marijuana, prescription drugs, compulsively visiting prostitutes, robbing banks, etc.

      • Interestingly, it appears your own fetish is degrading and dehumanizing other people’s paraphilias, using short dismissive sentences as a form of dominance. Fortunately, your excessive use of disgust-centric language enables us to plainly see the low-information, judgemental intention of your comment.

        In fact, as M.I.’s considered and interesting post demonstrates, the paraphilia need not have particularly deep psychological roots, and can indeed spring from simple reinforcement of feedback loops around prostate stimulation and defecation and related sensations, rather than from other desires that might more accurately qualify as perversions, like sadomasochism or zoophilia.

    • Hi,

      I have read what you wrote and I would really really really like to talk to you! I hope you get this message.

      Thank you

  7. Addendum: I mentioned not being into farting, likewise I am not sexually aroused by vomit (like most people, the smell and sight of vomit can induce a gag reflex in me,) snot or spit (spitting on someone or in their mouths is common in BDSM) for some strange reason these things *actively* reduce my arousal! I find this subject very interesting and would love for more research to be done in these areas but, sadly, due to societies bizarrely negative attitudes, not just to sexual fetish, but to sex as a whole, this seems unlikely.

    I suspect I would lose my job as an educator if I admitted to these interests, even though they have no real bearing on my ability or fitness to teach. One day, perhaps, we will all live in a more enlightened society. Hope spring eternal! 😉

  8. I have a different theory, especially after finding scat play far, far more common than you indicate. I’ve a bias too.

    My hypothesis is three fold and simple.

    1) The immune system is built for challenge but mostly we don’t challenge it – so we get allergies and immune disorders. The immune system has been shown to influence who we may end up loving – at least straight couples – because of the wider protection crossover you get with deeply contrasting MHC’s. We’re mammalian omnivores, like dogs, pigs, rats and CAN like these mammals ingest fecal matter on average without any specific harm. This ignores certain parasites and Weill’s disease of course.

    2)Linked to the above, gut flora influences mood/hormones and is necessary for certain vitamin synthesis and digestive processes. Recently fecal transplants have proven effective to varying positive degrees in treating a number of serious digestive tract problems. So there is a link here.

    3)Toxaplasmosis may be implicated in changing human personality and behavior, merely by the expression of 2 genes that code for L-dopa. In rats, they take more risks and become attracted to cat urine making them more likely to be killed and eaten by the same. 33% of UK people have this bug.

    All the above I believe to be primary drivers, causing the secondary problems of compulsive fetishism.

    Now my bias – which makes the above look like a justification.

    I’ve eaten over years, crap from several people, one guy bought a selection of crap from dogs, stored shit – some weeks or many months old and similar filth.

    I was ill but once, fresh, from a guy who did a very deep enema-so I know why.

    The rest? Felt better not worse.

    Hate the taste, hate enjoying it at times, it doesn’t really effect how I see myself but it’s bloody inconvenient.

    • Just reading this makes me want to throw up. I can’t possibly think of anything more disgusting there could be in the entire universe, from the beginning of time until now. Don’t you know how unsanitary and revolting this is? Just the thought of it….. OMG Sorry, but OMG I’m going to be sick. Stay away from me vomit eaters.

  9. What is it called, if only you are into watching women either wet or defecate their panties? I know it is a weird question, but still hope to get a response!

    • I’m pretty sure that falls under mysophilia (perhaps “voyeuristic mysophilia” if you don’t especially want to come into contact with the bodily wastes yourself). If you want to be an active participant in having a woman soil herself, that would be a kind of salirophilia.

  10. Mysophilia is a fetish for uncleanness or soiledness (possibly, but not necessarily, involving bodily wastes). Salirophilia is a fetish for soiling a person. So wanting to have sex with a woman who soiled herself (especially before she cleans up) would be mysophilia. Wanting to cause a woman to soil herself would be salirophilia.

    As to whether this, or any fetish, can be cured . . . that’s a big open question. “Treated” would perhaps be a better word than “cured,” in any case. How easily it could be treated depends on a lot of factors: how long has the person in question had this fetish, how was he introduced to this practice or otherwise made aware of it, how crucial a part of his sexuality is it (i.e., is he capable of sexual arousal and performance with a woman who hasn’t soiled herself?), whether he actually wants to change. It might be possible to engage in active reconditioning with a sex therapist or behaviorist, but there’s no guarantee that would work. Look at gay “conversion” therapy – there are VERY few cases of a homosexual going through a treatment program and afterwards experiencing strong, exclusive attraction to the opposite sex. Homosexuals with a strong desire to change are often successful in learning to ignore or subdue their same-sex attractions and practice celibacy, but lapses are hardly uncommon – and those who are entered into a treatment program involuntarily are even less likely to change. Basically, sexual attraction isn’t something we can set out to rewire with any reasonable expectation of success, though we can certainly learn to control our behavior (and usually, to a certain extent, our conscious thoughts), if necessary or desirable.

  11. Thanks for the reply. The problem with me is that i think it is really discusting, and if it happened in front of me, i think i would be sick. but somehow, it turns me on? This is wierd, and i hope its just a fase or something. Im not even that kind of perve that is watching porn all the time. Im a young, good looking (By this i mean that most people would call me “attractive”) and pretty popular guy. I have had pretty many sexual partners, and still i have one of these wierd fetishes. I thought only wierd, low-level asperger and borderline people had such. Guess not. Sorry for the stereotype, i really just thought so. But whatever, thanks for the reply!

  12. I have long been puzzled by the fact that a type of coprophilia which is quite common in my opinion – at least, there are terabytes of content made specifically for people with this paraphilia – is completely looked over. I have never read any scientific discussion of it. Perhaps the reason is that very few people admit that they have this, it does not interefere with “normal” sex, and usually does not cause social conflict (but see below).

    This paraphilia is usually found in men, and it involves having a very strong sexual desire to watch (or just hear) women defecate. People having this are not aroused by feces itself, usually they are disgusted by it to the same extent average people are. Most usually, arousal is hightened if the act can be observed in detail, with the anus in plain view.

    This paraphilia is often found in pieces of literature and historical documents, one example being ‘My Secret Life by Walter’. In Japan, the “girls pooping videos” porn business is almost a whole industry.

    As it can be hard to find a consenting female partner, people with this paraphilia are dependent on the porn industry, and they sometimes engage in voyeurism.

    With many people, the main object of sexual attraction, women defecating, is supplemented by certain conditions that heighten the arousal or are actually necessary for sexual satisfaction. These involve, among others, that the woman defecates in her panties, that the stool is large and hard and comes out with a struggle, that the woman is unsuspecting, that the stool can be touched or played with afterwards, that the woman has diarrhea etc.

    This is a very specific form of coprophilia, and because of its relative commonness, it can be an interesting subject for academic research. Actually, this paraphilia may be entirely seperate from the paraphilia usually described as coprophilia. A porn producer suggested the term ‘EFRO’, which has gained some currency.

  13. I myself have had to live with soiling my pants and having no control over my bowls and passing wind all my life, I find it so embarrassing , I find it hinders my sex life, incase I have a accident, I never realised there was people out there that actually liked that sort of thing !

    • This is a very interesting and educational blog site and the comments I find to be honest and factual. I’m 42 yr old man fairly attractive university educated person n the medical field. As a child I used to HATE having BM’s to the point where I would hold it in as long as possible. Sometimes I wouldn’t have a BM for 5 days. I would eat normally 3 times a day, active kid. But it would get to the point where when I felt the BM coming on I would go to the bathroom and clinch my ass together until the urge to have a BM would subside…and it got to the point where I LOVED the sense and feeling of stopping the BM urge. I would find it erotic. Gosh I cant believe Im typing this. But it got to the point that I would shit my pants because I wouldn’t b able to hold it all. My dad took me to the hospital and they did an X-ray of my bowels and they found that my bowels were stretched to the point of rupturing! So they gave me meds to make me have BMs. I tried to fight the urge but after about 6 months became normal have normal BMs and the erotic BM holding sensation subsided. I have normal BMs now but I do have an erotic pleasure of watching scat videos, and my current girlfriend shits on me when I request it. My theory on as to why I enjoy it is this…..everybody shits, and someone earlier posts touch on the fact that shitting is a part of our primal functions that we hold near and dear to us. But I sense that American women (I’m and American living in Cali), work soo hard on smelling good with body sprays and perfumes and the like; and at the same time look at shit and the smell and bad body hygiene as “eeww grooss” yet if they didn’t shower for a week they would stink too, and their shit smells also. So for me to it gives me pleasure to see a pretty lady not be concerned or grossed out by shitting and enjoying it :-). Plus I feel that shitting is labeled as a private moment and women wana say “oh I don’t smell, my shit smells like roses” yeeea right! So I love watching scat videos where pretty ladies get smelly n nasty. And for my girlfriend to share her most intimate taboo excrement is erotic to me. Idk. Sorry for the long post, but I just felt the need to express myself.

  14. I have been fascinated with women pooping since I was about 5. I was alone with my mother during the day. At about 9:AM each morning she would go into the bathroom to take a long leisurely poop. She would leave the door open and tell me to stay where she could see me. As soon as she sat on the toilet, she started letting out some loud farts, followed by loud urinating. My mother had no inhibitions when it came to toilet sounds. Then I would hear the poop splashing into the water followed by more farts. My mother would spend about 15 minutes on the toilet reading, farting and pooping. I found it all titillating. When we would have guests, I’d get as close to the bathroom as possible when my aunts or other women friends went in. I rarely heard anything but it didn’t matter to my mother if there was a house full of people, you could hear her farting and urinating right through the closed door. My mother enjoyed getting an enema once every few months. It was great fun to hear that. I’ve been hooked ever since. If anyone wants to talk about this, I’ll leave my email: aoconnel01@northshore.edu

    Love shit, always have. I have been operating websites for gay shitlovers since the turn of the century. Been in contact with tens of thousands of them. This article is about on par with something Anne Landers would have written about homosexuality in 1962. Means well but doesn’t have a clue (has a dearth of empirical data). Take it with a grain of salt.

    If there’s a grad out there looking for a subject, we can provide plenty of data. Until then, real information from real shitlovers will be forever banned from Wikipedia due to lack of citations.

    • I’m not a grad but I have a general psychological academic interest in this area (am likely a user of one of your sites) and would be fascinated to hear more analytic dialogue on the matter, and the kind of data you have accrued.

  16. This is really very simple. You have an asshole that has thousands of stimulating nerve endings. The asshole is a pretty prominent part of your anatomy so it is important to you. You go poop everyday. You have your whole life. Most every poop you have taken, you enjoyed it immensely. Evolution would not have designed you to perform a daily bodily function if it hurt every time you did it. That’s why you like it, as it stimulates your anal nerve endings when it comes out. Mix in with this a ton of sexual pheromones and your own sexual hormone triggers and is bound to cause sexual stimulus in some way or another in just about everyone, whether they admit it or not. Everyone has an intimate relationship with their anus and their poop.

  17. Also, the question regarding people eating shit. Maybe this can be answered by asking people from different cultures around the world who daily eat food that smells exactly like shit, or a lot worse than shit. In addition, eating your own shit is harmless as long as your healthy. It is your own bacterial fauna, which is actually part of your family since the bacteria in your gut is the offspring of bacteria you first received when you were an infant. You and this is bacteria have been depending on each other your entire life, and if they ever went away, you would die. So you should actually love very dearly your family of bacteria that has made your life possible.

  18. I get sexually aroused from shit….it is the pheromones that arouse me…..the higher the levels of the person…the more aroused I get…

  19. There’s a lot of confusion from both sides here. People with “normal” sexualities don’t seem to get coprophilia at all, and there’s a lot of nonsensical speculation (like “a common analytic interpretation is that the excrement symbolically represents the penis and that the presence of the fecal matter serves as a defense against castration anxiety”). Also, and a major point that the article has missed is that there’s a difference between a paraphilia and a paraphilic disorder. Coprophilia is a paraphilia, and it only becomes a paraphilic disorder in the context given in the first paragraph “…the behavior, sexual urges, or fantasies cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning…”. Without making this distinction you imply that coprophilia (and all other paraphilias) will always cause distress and impairment, which is simply not true

    On the other side a lot of coprophiles seem to be ignoring that different people may have different reasons to be into scat to them – some people like seeing stuff come out of anuses, some people like the smell and taste of shit, some people are into it because they want to be humiliated in scat play, some people like seeing humiliation from people soiling themselves, some people use diaper play as a part of paraphilic infantilism, some people like it because of digestion, some people are into it as an extension of vorarephilia, and others have a combination of different reasons. Just because you might only like one of these aspects doesn’t mean other people don’t like different ones.

    People can have fetishes for anything, sometimes as a result of unusual events during childhood, but sometimes just out of nowhere.

  20. What if you are a normal (although that’s a relative term), healthy, XX female who enjoys shitting yourself, on rare occasion, and watching videos of other XX females doing the same? Does that make you a lesbian with a scat fetish? XY males and known MtF’s do nothing for me when I watch them do such things, and the manlier they are, the less attractive I find them, because men are expected to be gross, therefore, their feces doesn’t excite me. I’ve also never had a boyfriend in my 33 years, so could I be gay?!?

    HI! im a 19 year old normal male citizen, who (oddly enough) is a coprophilliac or on a lesser note is someone who gets turned on but the sight of feces (not all) “go figure…” While i wasn’t abused as a child or showed strong signs of a mental disorder im curios why a person like me is [contracted] with such a trouble some fetish. Its not that its the only thing i find attractive but more or less… i find it SO much more attractive then lets say: a picture of a naked woman or just plain “ass and tits”. Also its not general to the point where i can get turned on by watching anybody release their bowels, its usually centered around females my age or 10+ also excludes the thought of anyone i know personally. Guess you could say im “picky” to a certain extent lol… Something that always piqued my curiosity is the porn industry in Japan is how such a (rare) fetish, yet you can find videos of that content abundant in that culture that virtually anywhere else. Perhaps you guys as a whole can figure out the resoning behind my quandary. Many thanks in advance

      I was lucky enough to have a gf that likes the same thing as I. I love to get shitted on by her. To look her into her eyes as she’s unloading her bowels upon me I find incredibly erotic. I’m still trying to get past the whole smell thing. But I’m getting used to it. To know that a pretty Asian female is sharing one of the most private moments (shitting) with me turns me on.

      • Cursed Unicorn

        My apologies for my own failure to mention my OWN question lol. My questions are the following:
        1. How do you think i gained such a fetish if its so rare and my living circumstances are pretty standard and satisfactory. (sorry if it seems like im boasting as if i was royalty)

        2. With such a fetish found as rare why is it abundant in other countries or at least more than the US where i was born and raised.

        3. Why do you think Japan is the current leading provider of such content to supply such videos of a “rare” (or on a lesser note uncommon fetish.

      • Jeffrey Whitaker

        You raise some great questions. I’m not sure how to answer them. I know that I’ve gone to some websites regarding whether scat is real or not. I’m into the Brazilian scat and some of those ladies REALLY enjoy it. I mean they’re swallowing chuncks of shot without gagging or anything. When I swallow my gfs shit sometimes it tastes bitter to the point where I gag.

  22. Cursed Unicorn

    You, my friend are a lucky person lol….but still my questions remain unanswered and unceasing. Ah well ^^

    • Jeffrey Whitaker

      Cursed Unicorn. Sorry for not answering your question but after reading you comment again I’m not sure what your question is. Sure we have a rare eroticism with scat however my needs are met with scat vids and my scat gf. I love the Brazilian scat vids much more than the Japanese scat vids. Recently my gf and I bought one of those bedside commodes. That way I can slide underneath it and she sits on the commode WITHOUT the catch bucket. That way o can see her pretty lil asshole open up and see the pretty brown treat slide out onto me. It’s always a treat/surprise to see what kind of consistency it will be.

  23. My friend said she have a sexual pleasure by just looking or imagining someone pooping. She is not really sure whether it is a sexual pleasure or not because she have never having sex in her life. But she told me that she feel something, she feel funny at her genital area, yet it is pleasuring. it do has climax ,and when it’s over,she’s done. So,foes she having coprophilia?

  24. Hallo, i would like to ask about one situation which i dont understand with excramation of one man in his bath,but he left it there and i found it…. I was accomodated at quest, couch.surfing, at house of one boy 30 years old. His sofa was small for me, so he said that i can sleep at his double bed. I agreed, i had good energy/relaxing from he, no atraction sexual. I felt possitive energy when i was near to him. Later he said he do reiky …maybe i felt this. ….But i woke up that he touched me softly on belly, breast…i woked up but i was waiting how he continue..so he went down… i didnt want t o react to him, just i turned or moved/ i was worry to say smt, coz his reaction could be violent or ….- i didnt know him. When i moved he stopped imediately. But i woke up 4 times for this, may be he did it more during night but i was sleeping. Next day he was polite, normal, we were like friends on beach, nothing sexual. I wasnt worry of him, may be coz he was smaller than me, or coz he spoke philosophically, that he likes buddhism…At night it was again…in the mornig i said him that y touched me. He said many time sorry, that he broke up 2 weeks ago and he thought that im still his girl friend, bla blaa. and that he needs hugs…i said ok..normal day without attraction from my side, he didnt give me signal too. At night i asked him for massage of foot/he knows acupresure….he did. But i wasnt worry now of some violent, i thought that he is normal and i can control situation,so i started to use maximum of relaxing atmosphere….than we had hugs, i did massage to him and so on… he didnt clean his teeth for few days so i didnt want to kissed him..than we went sleep he wanted sex i said no, he respected. But than i allowed to do it by fingers and i said sex with condom. he said he hasnt and he didnt like with, he shames to buy it, at its better natural. But respect me still. But he wasnt alble to sleep next to me and tried to convince me for sex…and was sad that i dont want to kiss. I said its not higienic coz y kissed your dog. Next strange was that he asked me if its legal to be pregnant for some pair and get them baby. That he wants baby from me, if i want to do it for him, little joke, but seriou. Coz he wants baby, he wants adopt, but he doesnt have good job … so no real for him. Btw he wad adopted. So i started be worry, if he didnt want realy impregnate me. But no, he was ok. Next day he asked me what is my next plan…coz he has plan with family..and normal quest are there one, two days…but im special coz we slept together and its first for him.I felt gently like he wanted to get out me of his flat. He was still hight, he smoked. So hard to analize. I got there my bag that he will came back later i will take bag and go to bus. But he was late few hours and no bus for me. So i automaticly staid, he didnt asked be if im going nothing he behavied like is normal that im staing next night, so i didnt understand. Every day we were with his friend/ i thought that he is gay, i wasnt sure. I started to think that he wanted to be with him, coz he wanted to go out of house…i dont know…At night he was hugging me and nice and he cleaned teeht and wanted sex, but he didnt buy condoms,even he knows that i never want withoout, that he doesnt like it. So i let him to did me again by fingers, but no sex. I ignored his needs i didnt allowed him do finnish at my breast. So he just did himself looking at my orgasm and went to toilet finished. He was still ok. We slept. I went to do coffe and i want to get shower. And in bath was his shit in the middle. I was shoked! I dint know what to do. If told him to clean it.If its provocation or he has some dissorder or schysophreny or …/i was 1 hour in bathroom every day, and he always made jokes- haa i know y are there too long, but not angree, jokes/ if he demontreied that i have to leave from his house by this??! I just opened water and cleaned it to canal and had shower. I didnt react. But it wast terrible but neccesary for my to clean myself. Than he gave me coffee, he was normal, like nothing happend. He said that his parents will come. So i said hallo to them, but i wanted to go out quick! I pretended that i saw nothing. He asked me to take by car at bus, polite. He was really nice, said me nice words, that his house is my house next time at trip, that he wants to travel near my country so we can see….but i was shocked so i just formaly answered. Next days he wrote me if im ok, how im …i answered cold..Exept this shit, he would be for me energetic, deep person, i felt realy good next to him, calm, and i can take energy from him like battery. But other side, he had bruxism, he smoked befor smoking coz he said that he cant sleep, he has head full of things, he smoked lot of cigarets-it looks like neurotic person. But he was calm still, he gave love to his animals cats and dog….So for me is like psychopat now. But im still thinking what means this shit??Please explain me this behavior. Is it some deviation or…how to react in this situations??

  25. Thanks for your insight. I am extremely blown away with information as i havebeen invited by a woman in indulge in all this mental mayhem
    . Regards Peter

  26. I’m a proud scat freak. It began when I was 8-12 years old. The only private time I had was when I was in the bathroom. So I would quickly shit, then I’d have time after to masturbate freely without being bothered by my family. Eventually I got acclimated to the smell of shit and the act of shitting just before masturbating. So over time, the two naturally combined with one another. I realized so much pleasure comes from the anus (prostate). You can be into coprophilia and not be a menace to society. You can engage in safe acts of coprophilia. And we aren’t as scarce or weird as you may think. We are your non-suspecting next door neighbor, we are your clean-cut outstanding citizen, we are your friendly barista…
