Farting company: The strange world of eproctophilia

Olfactophilia (also known as osmolagnia, osphresiolagnia, and ozolagnia) is a paraphilia where an individual derives sexual pleasure from smells and odours. Given the large body of research on olfaction, it shouldn’t be surprising that in some cases there should be an association with sexual behaviour. The erotic focus is most likely to relate to body odours of a sexual partner, including genital odours.

One bizarre sub-type of olfactophilia is eproctophilia. This refers to a condition in which people are sexually attracted to flatulence. Therefore, eproctophiles are said to spend an abnormal amount of time thinking about flatulence, and have recurring intense sexual urges and fantasies involving flatulence. In trying to research this article, I did a complete literature search and couldn’t find a single academic or clinical paper that has ever been published on the topic – not even a case study. Therefore, all of the material here is based on non-academic sources. There are also examples of this practice on sites like YouTube where some people have uploaded their videos of farting on faces. Based on this anecdotal evidence, it would appear to be the domain of heterosexual men being farted upon by females.

Like most paraphilias, eproctophilia appears to be found mainly in men, although the anecdotal evidence suggests it is mainly found in heterosexual males particularly attracted to female flatulence. The accounts that I came across suggest that farts are typically targeted at the face, and sometimes more specifically at the mouth, the ear, or nose. Some claim it is a “softer form” of coprophilia (in which people are sexually aroused by faeces). Treatment for eproctophilia is generally not sought unless in some way it becomes problematic for the person. It appears that the majority of eproctophiles accept their fetish – particularly as there are no published treatment case studies in the sexology literature. However, it may be the case that people have this type of fetish but are simply unable to engage in it, even if they are in a stable relationship.

For instance, I came across was in the columns of Dan Savage who has a regular type of ‘agony aunt’ feature called “Savage Love” in ‘The Stranger’ newspaper based in Seattle (USA) but which focuses on more quirky and extreme aspects of human behaviour. This letter was sent into his column:

“My wife doesn’t understand or approve of my sexual needs. I would like her to pass gas in my face. It’s a common enough sexual interest that it has a name (eproctophilia). My wife does break wind from time to time, but she refuses to let me enjoy this natural functioning of her bowels no matter how often I discuss my needs with her”

The reply by Savage wasn’t very complimentary but the letter highlights the condition appears to exist. Another interesting snippet I found was this brief confession of someone asking for help on a fetish bulletin board:

I’ve been a sufferer [of eproctophilia] for as long as I can remember. I can’t stop myself from getting turned on whenever someone leaves a long, loud fart in my presence. It’s starting to become a real problem for me as I am required to give a lot of enemas in my line of work, and as we all know, enemas provide gas before the ride”

One of the most detailed accounts of eproctophilia I came across was this online confession from an American eproctophile (most notable because Americans refer to flatulence as “gas”). The only demographic information given was that he was a male student at university, in his early twenties, and studying a biological subject:

“I first realised that I had eproctophilia when I was 15 years old. I was at my [female] friend’s house, to do a school project and she had terrible gas. We had known each other for about seven years so she felt more than comfortable to let her gas out in front of me. At that point I was really turned on by the fact that she was a hot girl farting around me but I didn’t know why. As we where sitting on her bedroom floor sticking pictures to a poster she got up and went to the other side of the room to get a piece of paper. When she came back she said ‘Hey John’, and forced my face onto her bum. She then sat on me and she let out a loud, warm, smelly fart on my face. Then she laughed and said ‘Doesn’t that smell delicious hehehehe!!’

I don’t know why but I found that very sexy. I was too embarrassed to tell her how I really felt about what she did, so I just pretended I found it disgusting and that I didn’t care. However, after a while I told her how much I loved when she did that to me and she found it hilarious and was totally OK with it. When we are alone, she always tells me when she is about to fart and if I want her to do it in my face again. I say ‘no’ because that would be too awkward, but I get closer and sniff them anyway. I feel really embarrassed that she knows how I felt about her farting and I feel like she thinks I am some kind of creepy fart freak. But she says its cute, and if she had a boyfriend who had this fetish she would find it fun farting on his face.

Out of all the girls I’ve dated in my whole life, I have never told any of them about this fetish, even when they felt comfortable farting around me. My [female] friend is probably the only hot girl in the world that would do that to their guy friend. I imagine it would be very hard to find a nice, and attractive, girlfriend I actually love that would be OK with my fart fetish. So tell me girls, what would you do if your boyfriend told you he found it hot when you fart? Would you break up with him? Let him smell your gas? Or break up with him and tell the whole world? I know this may be an odd subject but try to be open-minded. Some people might say I am sick and crazy but I’m a pretty normal person, I am mentally and physically fit, [and educated].

Why do I think I like this? I think I find this really sexy because girls don’t usually fart around guys and feel good about it, so when they do I feel like the girl is so comfortable around me that she would let out her nasty flatulence in my presence and not just in front of anyone, and that gets me really turned on. To me, this is the one of the sexiest things a woman can do. My perfect fantasy would probably be for my [female] friend and her other hot friend to be farting on my face in her room. You probably find this really disgusting but it’s not my fault. I have this fetish. I have heard about other fetishes I find to be even worse than mine, so I don’t feel so bad about it. Flatulence is made out of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen, methane, and hydrogen sulfide, which is completely harmless to the human body. So there is nothing dangerous about this fetish.”

This account seems to echo most of the scientific research on the development of fetishes and paraphilias that such behaviours originate from behavioural conditioning – in this case classical conditioning where being sexually aroused by an attractive women is paired with something that is not inherently sexual (in this case, flatulence) and then starts to become an erotic focus in and of itself. As this male eproctophile notes himself, there is nothing ‘dangerous’ about his activity and it certainly appears to be less stomach churning than compared to paraphilias that appear to be similar (such as copraphilia).

  1. I suffered from Love Addiction . I am thankful that I have move forward. I appreciate your post. I will recommend your Blog to everyone I know who can benefit. Thank you

  2. Hello, sir. I am an eproctophile, and unlike the one you found to discuss the matter, I am not ashamed of my interest. Mind you, I don’t tell people what I’m into any more than I discuss any other sexual matter in public.

    Allow me to shed some light on why farting, of all things, is sexually interesting to us. First, let me mention that we are not sexually attracted to flatulence, per se. We are attracted to the person RELEASING the flatulence. Unattractive people farting, to us, is like seeing unattractive people having sex for you.

    Some of us are aroused by the idea of dominance, that by being farted on we are being put “in our place”, so to speak, much with any sort of S/M type of fetish.

    For others, myself included, it is a matter of dualities. Social norm dictates that people in general, particularly females, do not fart in public, for others to hear. To see a beautiful, delicate lady passing wind is a breach of those expectations in a profound manner. That a beautiful woman is capable of producing a “disgusting” sound and smell is what attracts us, and makes us want to experience it.

    It can also be a matter of humanization. Again, social ideologies tend to place the beautiful, particularly women, on a pedestal of what makes a conceptual or archetypal woman. To hear her pass wind is to hear an admission of humanity, that she is the same as the rest of us. It is to learn her dark secret, the sounds and smells of her uncontrollable biological functions. This is more of a dominant matter, as it is more about wrenching her humanity into focus whilst society attempts to hide it. Therefore, it is not always a matter of female dominance. However, due to the internet pornography market, most producers choose to follow the “dominatrix” stereotype, as it is a reliable source of income and a familiar “sexy” medium.

    One last note, there is a homosexual section of this fetish as well. It is seen less often simply because homosexuality is less common than heterosexuality. Though I don’t have statistics, I could guess that the percentages for each population are similar.

  3. Reblogged this on " Levena George" and commented:
    Another strange one for you all

  4. I have a fart fetish, and have had one for quite sometime. It is not something
    people hear about or that one goes around telling others. Women don’t act in
    ways of releasing bodily functions. I find it very cute when a girl with a nicer
    butt lets one go especially in the pretty clothing she is wearing. A girl with
    lovely curves makes it 10 times better its amazing. I feel like it would be
    difficult to find a women accepting of such an odd behavior. It would be
    wonderful to find a girl like that. I had a girlfriend who didn’t mind farting
    in front of me she did it every once in a while and she had a nice round ass,
    she would always warn me too. She would let then go right after some did smell
    and a couple with loud. It turned me on. After she would let some I would bring
    her close and kiss her and begin to make out then every now and again I would
    grab her ass while kissing her showing her I didn’t mind that she had farted it
    was a nice experience from an attracted lady my own age. It was fun to check her
    out sometimes knowing she would fart sometimes and the clothing she would fart
    in would make it more attractive =) it would be something if more girls should be like that.

  5. I am a 30 year old male.I came to know that I come under the eproctophile category, a few days back, though I had this fetish right from my teen age (say 14). i too love it when a girl/women farts. I get turned on when they are unaware of me or if the girl/women lets it out unintentionally during the sexual act rather than an intentional one.

  6. I am a male in my late teens. Gay but not open about it to anyone. But also, I am an exception to your stereotypical eproctophile or eproctophiliac. I am a homosexual eproctophiliac (you’ll have to excuse me, I like to use the term eproctophiliac instead of eproctophile). It means what you gentlemen feel above for women pretty much applies to me but only for men. I feel very comfortable; having this fetish isn’t weird to me, I very much enjoy it and it’s very fun too when or if you can find the right people to fart with.

    I feel no need to repeat comments above. Splat nailed it on the head. He was totally right when he said it is about the releasing of farts. That’s in part why we prefer it done on our faces in fantasy. He was also correct, of course, that in properly scaled numbers, eproctophilia exists just as commonly among homosexuals. YouTube is proof that this community exists out there and it is a decent size. We certainly like the full nine yards. The ass in our face, the ripping of farts, and the smell afterwards. YouTube can only give us the second, but, boy do I long for the first and third in real life.

    Being a homosexual eproctophiliac is EXTREMELY hard, because we can easily be satisfied by fine-looking heterosexual males too, just a damn fart in our face, but unfortunately it’s a pain in the ass (no pun intended) to find someone who will admit they like it or don’t mind doing so (come on, at my young age it should be easy, any teenage male loves to fart) because people are so closed up and think everything is “weird” or “gay”. I am obviously not open about it because fetishes should only be shared with those who also have and perform said fetishes alike. But to those out there, heterosexual or homosexual with eproctophilia, I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you can find a close friend or partner that can be your partner in farting. Cheers.

    P.S. I know someone who’s into astrology or is just wondering might come along, so I’ll leave you knowing I’m a Scorpio with Moon in Aries and a likewise Scorpio rising/asc. 😉

  7. I am the rarity. I am a 19 year old female eproctophiliac. I realized that I had this fetish when I was 14 and watching videos about farting on youtube. But, I knew from when I was a little girl that I felt differently about farts than other people did, though I was not sure how. I tried my best to try and get rid of it since people aren’t that accepting of things that are somewhat ‘abnormal’ or taboo. I love to smell my own farts and farts from both female and male people that are outside of my family (cause that would be weird). I love the sounds they make, the potent odor, the warmth of them, and the vibrations and relief that are felt. I also enjoy the naughty factor that it brings. A couple of years ago I met a guy that was okay with the fact that I had this fetish and earlier this year I transformed him into an eproctophiliac because I kept farting around him because I thought it was funny. Soon, he told me how he felt and he was worried about how I would react to it. I was very happy that he had it now though because then we could fulfill each other’s fantasies by sharing this interest. He is also now my fiancee. I have come to accept the fact that I have this fetish because it isn’t hurting anyone, there are much more disturbing fetishes out there. Why not enjoy our bodily functions?

    • Hi I am 20 years old and also a Eproctophilia. I am married with a one year old son. I am relieved to know that I am not the only one with this weird fetish. I have had this fetish since I was a kid. If I would hear someone fart I would always wish I could be on their butt to feel the vibration of the fart. It has always been a good sensation to me. I like farts from male and female. LOVE THE BIG ONES! 🙂 I scarcely introduced my fetish to my husband when I got pregnant with my son. I acted like it wast changing hormones that caused me to want him to fart on me. Now he does it with no problem. He loves to fart on me. I’m glad he does because he has gas all the time and he even farts in his SLEEP! YEAH BONUS! Lol

    • Hey heidi, you are not the only girl with eproctophilia. I am a 20 year old female who is bisexual, that loves the smell and sound of farts. I loved it since i was 9. I didnt understand it at first, but now i love it!

      – Rona A.

    • I am also one so you are diffently not the only one.

  8. All of the above comments are interesting to me, and in the throes of sexual arousal I’ve occasionally asked my partner to fart while my face is … well, in the vicinity. But I think this thread misses a more prevalent – and to me more personally significant – paraphilia, which is arousal from the smell of – forgive the crudity – an arsehole.

    I am not remotely into coprophilia: the smell of faeces doesn’t turn me on. But there’s another smell associated with this part of the human anatomy, which I’ve read described as “funky”. It’s very hard to describe it otherwise, though I’m sure those who share this fetish will know exactly what the term means in this context. My sexual interest lies only with women, but the smell is not gender-specific (I know because I have it myself – I’m now sure we all do).

    In my youth, the smell of a vagina was the most potent aphrodisiac imaginable. At this much later time in my life, I am turned on far more by that “other” smell. The internet tells me I’m not alone but provides no explanation of why this is so.

  9. I think I got a fart fetish love when just about any girl fart on video just see if they a girl looking for a guy to fart for I your guy I am in my teens

  10. I am a homosexual eproctophile, 22 years old from S.A. and I agree with the previous comments.
    There’s also something I’ve been curious about for some time about this fetish, it’s cause.
    I’ve read about people getting into it because of different reasons.

    1- Some people would get into it because it’s something looked down upon and hence forbidden, which would obviously make it more attractive to some people, specially being heterosexual.
    2- The other one seems to be the opposite, in which farting is looked at as something completely normal and accepted in the family environment since childhood, which is my personal case.
    3- Finally, another cause I’ve found is simply having an overall attraction for scentplay, or ”olfactophilia” as this article mentioned, since flatulence can easily end up being attractive for people with that paraphilia, considering they usually already like other body odours.
    Personally, I’ve met at least 4 people that had that paraphilia and ended up liking the idea of eproctophilia as well, so it doesn’t seem to be as unusual as most people think, it’s just something that people don’t usually even consider because of useless social restrictions, or simply because they don’t fit any of the previous situations I mentioned.

    There are also a few other things I’d like to mention.
    I also don’t really consider it a ”softer form” of coprophilia, and coprophilia does turn me on a little, but it’s never been related to my attraction for flatulence, it’s just something I got interested in quite recently, even though I’ve been conscious of my eproctophilia for almost 10 years.
    Another thing worth mentioning is that some people with this paraphilia enjoy farts in a humorous way, and don’t mind people passing gas in public and even consider it funny, but other people end up feeling awkward and uncomfortable about it, which is my case, because it’s something that I involuntarily consider to be completely sexual, so it feels completely ”out of place” when someone from your own family farts close to you, or when people around you do it considering it something funny funny and appropriate.

    And one last thing I’d like to say personally is that there’s no need to feel bad about having this paraphilia, many people would easily end up being interested on it and accepting it completely as long as its well explained and talked about with confidence, I know from experience. Also, good luck in finding a partner to enjoy this fetish with, it’s not that hard, and even if someone doesn’t share this paraphilia, it’s still a kink that’s quite easy to please, so as I said, just explain it properly and as long as you’re talking to someone who’s open minded enough, it’ll be accepted quite easily.
    I already had a partner with the same fetish, and I also share it with the guy I currently love, so yeah, there are lots of fun to be had with this fetish, so good luck ❤

    PS: Another thing that's also attractive for some people with this fetish, myself included, is letting out gas during sexual intercourse, because of the vibration and sound that comes from it. It's actually very attractive, so it's another way to enjoy this fetish that wasn't mentioned yet, as far as I noticed.

  11. I’m 17 years old, the place where I come from is very mainstream any difference or uniqueness would be un native or naive to most people. I have eproctophilia at a young age I found out, I forgot all about it till this one girl walked in the classroom when I was 10 I was really wishing to smell her farts so badly. After that I became an addict nobody knows this, it’s a deep secret to my friends and family. My outside point of view is different than my internal point of view with my friends I act all
    Disgusted When they speak on it but when they’re talking about a girl with a round juicy petite figured Butt farting I get turned on really fast. the vibration on my gentile The smell is amazing.

  12. I was 14 in high school and very tired one day from staying up all night. At recess I sat outside in back of the school against the wall and went to sleep. One of my class mates who was blonde and cute and very sexy put her big butt in my face and let out a loud long fart and it smelled like corn. Then she sat in my lap and tried to grind me. She laughed and said she had corn for dinner last night. She had a few holes in her jeans and it was clear to me she wasn’t wearing panties. I couldn’t hit her she was a girl and quite pretty. For some weird reason I got an erection and she saw it and laughed even more so I told her to get lost. I went back to my nap. The next day I was in a classroom by myself and she apologized backed me against the wall and looked into my eyes with those baby blues. I back away and she said don’t be afraid, I’m not going to harm you.She hugged me and gave me my first kiss. We dated for a while and she asked me if it turned me on when she farted and I said I don’t know. She said don’t be ashamed so every time she wanted sex she would let it fly and I somehow found myself giving into her. Whenever she farted it smelled like what she had for dinner the night before, sometimes onions or peas or peanut butter and she always had gas. She could fart about a dozen or more times which was also strange because she had that rare ability to suck air into her butt and let it out at will. I broke up with her because I did not feel it was normal and I did not like her using me like that. I heard that her next boyfriend left her because of her farting ways. She wasn’t a bad person, and she was very smart but just weird.

    • I am very sorry that happened to you. You did that right thing though. Having Eproctophilia is fine, but a person should never force that fetish onto anyone else. I wish you the best of luck in your future relationships.

  13. Hello. Like Heidi, I am a 17 year old female eproctophile. I’ve had this fetish for as long as I can remember, but, only realized and accepted it as such at the age of 14. I had a much harder time coming to terms w/ my copraphilic desires -I denied it to myself until I was 15. Before then, I was horribly ashamed of my own wants.
    Since then, I have been able to come to terms with my sexual fetishes (though I have a strong feeling that these fetishes, as well as my BDSM and guro fetishes, were caused by the many years of emotional and sexual abuse I endured as a child.).
    I believe that abused persons are drawn to worthlessness and/or power and control. And if the abuse was sexual, it can sexualize those feelings.
    Think about it; being shat upon or whipped brings about feelings of self-contempt and worthlessness while doing the same to others can evoke feelings of dominance and satisfaction that someone may have been previously deprived of.

  14. i am a 21 year old man from england, ive had this fetish since before i was a teenager, as far as my experiences go, i dont recall what spurred it on originally, but i do remember my first real encounter with it, i was 15 and around a friends house, his sister was the same age and she was incredibly fit. she used to tease me and stuff but would never go all the way, one day, i was lying on their mums bed after school as my mate went for a shower, she came back wearing her uniform, a skirt, no tights and pink panties, its important to note i hadnt seen her yet, so then all i saw was her upskirt view, sit down on my face, she said “hello mike, good day?” i genuinely didnt know what to do, she then said “oh sorry im sitting on your face, how rude of me” (obviously being playful) i muffled “i dont mind haha” she then let out a little fart and said “excuse me” then got off and went to her room.
    surreal as this seems, i felt so turned on i just had to masterbate, then couldnt stop thinking about it everytime i went to masterbate!

    i started dating a girl, we went out for around 3 years and then she broke up with me because of reasons separate to that of this subject thankfully.
    one night she told me about her fetish which was basically to feel empowered and held down whilst we had sex, it was easy enough to fulfill hers and she was always happy with sex, she asked me what my fetish was and i always said “i dont really know if i should tell you as i think that you’d find me weird” eventually i told her and she was humoured at first but then felt overly comfortable after that ripping them and asking if i wanted to smell them, she understood that for me, it was the feeling of being dominated by her that turned me on, so shed sit on my face quite a lot, force me to lick her out and occasionally if she had one “brewing” shed do it without warning and then say “sorry about that” sarcastically, i loved it!

    present day and im recently single, to be honest im a little un knowing of how to now fulfill this fetish, im currently always typing in ‘girl farts’ or ‘girl face farts’ like at least twice a day!! im constantly going to be in a state of never knowing weather or not to bring it up to future to future partners or how (or if) there are girls who’d do it for money or whatever. like i say i know this fetish is weird, but its not like i chose to have it, but its not hurting anyone so, no harm done really, anyone from around the uk care to reply?

    • So glad I found this site. I’ve had this fetish as long as I can remember. I would love to talk to someone who had the same fetish

  15. So check this out, I’m from america. I’ve had this fetish ever since I was a kid. The struggle is real.

  16. I’m a 22 year old male addicted to female farts.
    And seriously it’s hell that no one understands. I once told this girl a couple years ago about it and she didn’t stare at me like I was a freak at all. She actually told me she could queef on command and asked if that would be the same. I was like nah it wouldn’t be the same, but thanks for not looking at me like I’m a fucking weirdo. Anyways nothing happened with it. But yeah, like mike said I’m constantly looking the shit up on the internet to fulfill my needs. Like tubegalore or tubekitty. Ever since I can remember I’ve always been attracted to girls farting. It has something to do with the forbidden factor. Like “girls don’t fart.” Girls in school used to fart around me all the time and I always somehow got to witness a girl farting when I was younger. My first wet dream in my life was a girl farting on a peanut. I’ve never in my life been able to get off to anything else. Even before I hit puberty, every time a girl farted, I would get a boner. I used to have farting contests with this girl I knew when I was younger,and she’d just rip these loud ass farts right on my bed. I thought it was super hot that she disrespected me like that and just farted where I slept. I wonder someday if I’ll ever meet a girl that’s willing to do that for me. The struggle is real, and I’m glad I know there are people like me now. The thought of a male farting though disgusts me and makes me want to puke. I only like it when girls do it. Whenever a dude farts around me, I cringe. Think about it like this; it’s like a regular straight guy with his sexual needs, he loves to see naked women and that gets him hard, right? But if he sees a male naked, he’s gonna wanna puke and be like dude, what the fuck, put some clothes on. Well it’s the same way with me, I’m a straight male and I like it when GIRLS fart and that’s what gets me off, so when a male does this, I wanna vomit. That’s the EXACT OPPOSITE of what I wanna see Well. that’s my story, guys. I’d love to hear what any of you have to say.

  17. I have a fart fetish and have been writing fart fetish domination and torture fiction for almost 9 years now. I don’t tell anyone about my fetish; I keep my two lives very separate but I wonder if my fetish, especially with focus on female domination, has cemented my shyness and inability to engage around women. I don’t date; I’ve had one girlfriend through a setup from a friend.

    I’ve also never smelled a fart; I mean, maybe in passing but I’ve never purposefully acted on my fetish other than my writing. It’s a longstanding fantasy for me that has hold on me as “regular” vanilla sex does not thrill me; even the prospect of sex isn’t that thrilling. What is arousing is the watching of fart videos, reading fart stories, or looking at pictures and masturbating to the thought of being used/tortured like that.

    Here’s my stories: http://www.asstr.org/~Closet_Fetishist/stories.html

    And here’s my caption images: http://www.imagefap.com/profile/ClosetFetishist

  18. My partner likes farts and burps and my poop try and please get a cure for this thank u

    • There is no cure for it, you dumb cunt. If you don’t want to participate in those kinds of acts with him, just tell him you don’t want to and that you won’t. If he persists, break up with him. Easy as that.

    • Well the “cure” is mental, not physical or pharmaceutical. If your partner wants to stop being attracted to farts and shit, they could try but it would surely be very hard, given how many years of thinking and obsession has grained in to his mind – just like all of us who “suffer” this and similar fetishes.

      Really the only option is to be okay with it and ideally appease him with it (or allow him to do that himself – though, that would suck for both of you probably) or, yeah, let him find someone who will satisfy his desire.

      • Uh, no. There is no cure for any fetish. If you think that, you’re pretty stupid. You cannot go to a therapist thoroughly aroused by something and then leave the office completely void of any attraction to it at all. That is psychologically impossible. You would have to wipe someone’s identity completely from their brain by forcefully giving them amnesia. And even then, they might still be aroused by it.
        Saying you can “cure” a fetish is like saying you can “cure” homosexuality. You can’t. Whatever fetishes or sexuality a person has, that’s a part of who they are. If this Stacey chick doesn’t like who her partner is, she should find a new boyfriend, not try to change something harmless about him.

      • Well I don’t think I’m stupid because I have this fetish and I’ve written several erotic stories on the fetish. You’re right, you probably can’t cure it; but, I sure you can choose to repress it and wean yourself off it; to think you can’t is shortsighted. I mean, just as there are closeted gays, there are surely closeted fetishists who never explore their desires. Thus weaning or repressing could be a “cure” if it satisfies the person “suffering” from the fetish.

        Maybe I’m wrong, I certainly wasn’t able to but my discipline could be weak. With the people that suddenly disappear from this fetish (writers, etc.) it seems like many have the fetish and then drop away, stating reasons of embarrassment or trying to be “normal.” So I think, if your mind is there, you can try to stop having a fetish by weaning yourself away but it would be very hard I’m sure (and likely the desire would still linger – but hopefully not be debilitating for someone who genuinely would want to “quit” this fetish).

      • Repressing your true nature and wants and desires is unhealthy. No one should be encouraged to repress their fetishes or sexuality. That is not a cure. It’s a horrible, mentally unhealthy thing to do.

      • But that’s to assume fetishes leave one entirely mentally healthy. Many, I think, live in fear of people finding out, don’t want to tell people – I know I don’t want to tell anybody about my fetish. I think that lack of sexual openness with partners can be equally unhealthy and detrimental to relationships.

        It entirely depends on your view; if your fetish makes you happy, do it. If it doesn’t, to force it upon yourself when you’d rather you work on not having it, seems just as detrimental as trying to repress the urges.

        To go to a point from your last message, it doesn’t really compare to trying to “cure” sexual orientation as orientation is the overall attraction to a certain or both sexes; a fetish is an expression that falls in line with that orientation. You can’t “fix” who you are attracted to; but you can choose what you do with them, be it sex this way, or that way, domination, submission, fetish stuff, etc.

        For example, if I wanted to not watch or write fart fetish material anymore, I could try to stop myself, try to wean myself off and only watch vanilla sex, maybe 69 stuff since it’s closer to facesitting. I may have some success, trying to move the obsession from farts to maybe just butts as the attraction to asses is already strong. But I wouldn’t likely be able to wean myself off liking women.

      • Ok, I see your point now. But, I believe that someone should only try to “cure” their fetish if it makes them personally unhappy or ashamed and they are really uncomfortable with that fetish. That’s their own choice. But, you should never let a partner force you to stop being who you are. That’s just a disaster waiting to happen.
        I never thought I’d be able to admit my fetishes to anyone who wasn’t into them, too. But my bf is as vanilla as they come pretty much and he completely accepted me. We don’t even do any of my fetish stuff with each other (though I’d probably like it if he did some BDSM play with me; he already spanks me whenever I want) and we’re in a perfectly happy relationship because he loves me unconditionally.

      • I agree with you entirely; has to be the fetishist’s choice, not their partners, that’s not fair or acceptable. If for some reason they love their partner that much they want to do that for them, that’s another story but will likely lead to unhappiness and lack of sexual fulfillment for both of them. If the partner is making the choice, they should find a new partner.

        Same here really, I did eventually tell my ex (while we were together), she expressed some similar desires but she never really dominated me much, I didn’t push her or even really ask her to do anything like I probably should have. I wound up dominating her much more than she did to me; which looking back, is disappointing. I wonder and thinking about what it would have been like; I don’t know I’d be comfortable with anyone else again to be able to tell them.

      • Wow, man, you were one lucky son of a bitch to have a girl fart fetishist as a girlfriend. You definitely should have discussed your desire to be dominated by her. You could’ve taken turns. So was she having you fart in her face? That’s super hot if she was.


  19. There are so many great posts and comments here! To cut to the quick – Im a twenty something gay make in Nj very much into this and need more ppl to speak to about it. Please Kik for convo at Virtigo5. Thatd b amazing!

  20. I’m actually relieved to discover that m nt the only one having dis type of a fetish

  21. wow! I’m so thrilled that I have others like me with same fart fetish. I have had mine since i could remember. I always fantasize about been farted on or smell the farts of a really pretty lady. the stinkier it is the better for me. I am a male 31 and hope to meet and fall in love with some babe that wouldn’t mind farting around and on me. I think its super hot

  22. I really wish some girl would just fart in my nose.😊

  23. I’m a 15 year old who has eproctphilia and was wondering how to tell my girlfriend I really like and fantasize farting that I’m into her farts she farted around me before and enjoyed her fart but got super embarrassed when she realized I heard it and apologized I then said it’s okay and we didn’t talk about after

  24. Jared it doesn’t seem like it’s something she might be ready to approach right now, from what you’ve said (but you’d know her better than any stranger on the internet). Otherwise, just approach it casually, don’t rush it, make sure you’re understood…maybe take it in steps, talk about facesitting or something even tamer than that, and then work up to fart fetish. If she’s not comfortable with farting around you at the moment, it may be hard to convince her of the erotic properties of farting at this point. As you spend more time with your girlfriend, learn more about each other, you should start to feel like you can tell her anything without judgement or risk; and that may be the most ideal time to wait for.

  25. Tommy dooling

    I’m glad I’m not alone. I’m a 31 year old male with a fart fetish. I discovered around 10 years old when a girl farted on me. I have a girlfriend of a year and a half that is completely supportive. My issue is that i masturbate to videos of other women farting. I want to figure out how to break the physcological desire for “fart porn” to focus on increasing the intimacy in my relationship before it’s too late. Any suggestions would be helpful…..

    • Tommy, unfortunately I don’t have the answer(s) for you but am sympathetic and feel very much in the same boat; it’s only fart porn which is exciting over any actual penetration. Oddly enough my girlfriend would be willing to fart for me but I find myself shying away from that as well, almost uncomfortable and more comfortable relying on fart pornography.

      Here’s a thought, completely random and out of the blue so maybe it’s nonsense, but what if your girlfriend recorded a video, in a style you like (domination, consensual, giantess, etc.), of her farting. Maybe you could use this to wean yourself off images of other women and onto your partner, and it would help bridge the gap by still being “fetish” content. It’s a random thought but maybe it could work.

      You could also look for or seek out what other aspects of sexuality entice you and try to focus on that; maybe if she dominated you a little, you’d have some sexual spark.

      I think, at the end of the day, the psychological need for fart porn (or any porn for that matter) is a tough obstacle to climb and, in part, requires the significant amount of will power to make the change.

    • Tommy, good for you to have a supportive significant other. How’d you bring it up to her in the first place and how did she react?
      It would be tough for one to begin to decrease the desire to utilize porn in your situation. If your sex life is pretty active, spicing things up could be exactly what you’re in need of. Then you could get your mind off other material. See what she would have in mind!

      • Tommy Dooling

        Thanks for the feedback guys. It got to be too much for my GF. So I am back single again. Hopefully I can find a woman one day that is more patient Or maybe one that satisfies me to the point where I have no desire to turn to the porn.

  26. I would be open to this

  27. The phrase “some kind of creepy fart freak” had me laughing hysterically.

  28. I’m 20 year old boy. From India I have this eproctophilia from the age of 8 when I not even aware of that I stay with my family in small town and after father’s promotion we shifted to metro city Mumbai. I still remember those memories in town from where we shifted my mom used to run leady parlor most of the times women come to parlor for eyebrows when my mom done doing eyebrows client leaves n mom then busy in her household work I take advantage of that and all the times I used to smell seat of chairs what a fart I still remember those stinky smell. And experience of town where I’m living is when I’m at age of 13 I used to go to neighbor’s house and there are three women one of them is aunty and her two daughters I used to smell there farts all the time one of elder girl’s fart is too stinky and when they done going toilet then I immediately go to toilet and used to smell entire toilet.

  29. Even though I’m not an eproctophile, I think someone close to me is, that someone is my boyfriend and we’ve been together for almost two years now, but he only started developing an interest in my farts recently. It started very randomly when I was on the phone with him one day and I accidentally let a loud fart, and instead of being grossed out he seemed to have liked it, then he brought it up in our conversations later on and anytime I mention anything about me farting he would get a boner, when we usually have phone sex (we’re long distance so we don’t see each other much) he would describe positions where his face is burried in my ass and me farting on him, and when we do meet he always asks me to sit on his face with my butt cheeks directly on his nose so he can “breathe” me. Up until now I had thought it was just extreme fascination with my ass since he’s very attracted to big asses, and now that I have stumbled across this blog I’m actually quite fascinated myself and I don’t find it weird at all. On the contrary, I’m glad so many people are sharing their personal experiences and I enjoyed reading them. I personally see it as one more way to make my boyfriend happy whom I love very dearly, and I wish all of you seeking for understanding and consenting partners to find what you’re looking for.

  30. gay woman with a fart fetish

    I am a homosexual woman with this fetish.

    In my case I do not need farting to become sexually aroused but it is something that does arouse me in the same way having or thinking about sex does.

    Some people with this fetish seem to find farts arousing regardless of the gender of the farter regardless of their orientation but I am only attracted to female farts.

    Another difference in my case is that I am attracted to the sound and vibration of farts not the smell. Of course the smell comes with the territory but it is not something I find appealing.

    As many others have said the main appeal for me is the intimacy and taboo of farting; for most people you have to very comfortable with someone to fart in front of them especially in a sexual situation or close quarters. Humiliation or dominance/submission play no part in this fetish for me personally but that said I do get emotional satisfaction from comforting and reassuring a woman who is embarrassed after farting, which again plays into the intimacy factor.

    I don’t have a desire for face farting but I do enjoy when a woman farts when cuddling, sitting on my lap or during sex, and I prefer “casual” or unintentional/surprise farting to what I guess you could call fart foreplay.

    I get no sexual gratitude from farting myself, and I’m actually quite a shy farter despite growing up in a family where farting wasn’t a big deal; I’ve only started farting in front of girlfriends after they themselves broke the “fart barrier” of the relationship and even then I still sometimes get embarrassed when I do fart.

  31. To be honest, I have this paraphilia…to a degree. I don’t get turned on by farting in the real world (as I am writing this at least), but I like reading smutty fanfics of it.

  32. I’m bi sexual, turned on by farts let off by young blond n blue eyed men, & those let off by any attractive females. I had a young blond boss one time, the company having flexi hours, & us 2 staying on late in the evening, After he’d had light, though ‘exotic’ lunches (Thai, Chinese, Indian), in an empty office, I’d give him blow jobs whilst he would blow his really really smelly farts. I loved it. Those were the happiest days in my life.
    Good to know that my fetishmis not unique. Anyone else here specially turned on by sniffing farts let off by blond men?
