Macro fetish

A close cousin of macrophilia, which is a fetish for giants, macro fetish is a fetish for sexual partners who are much bigger than you – not necessarily giants, but people who are much taller or much heavier than you.

Maid training

A fetish where a submissive person, usually male, is turned on by doing domestic chores for a dominant person, usually female. Costumes are often involved, such as French maid’s outfits or latex, and the maid is often punished if their work doesn’t satisfy the dominant.


A maiesiophile gets off on pregnancy, or the appearance of pregnancy, or specific aspects of pregnancy such as a protruding belly button.

Male chastity

Not always a fetish – it’s often practiced for moral or religious reasons – but if someone is being locked away in a device or he’s being brought to the edge of orgasm without being allowed to ejaculate then there is a sexual element involved. It’s similar to the dynamic of BDSM as there’s a dominant partner – the keyholder – and a submissive under their control, but participants don’t necessarily carry out any other BDSM activities.


This is a form of exhibitionism: someone with martymachlia enjoys having sexual activity while others watch, either in person or via a window or webcam.


A sexual attraction to armpits, the hairier the better.


People with a masking fetish are turned on by wearing a mask, such as a man wearing a female mask or a woman wearing a doll mask. The main attraction is complete visual transformation, something that would take a lot of effort and skill if you used make-up instead, and it offers the added benefit of instant removal.

This fetish is often described as a car fetish, but it can apply to any kind of machinery: cars, computers, robots, washing machines.

Medical Fetish

This fetish encompasses people who get turned on by medical uniforms – doctors’ coats, nurses’ tunics and so on – by medical instruments or by medical role-play.


Megalophilia is similar to the fetish for larger people, but this time the turn-on is large objects. Those objects could be sexual in nature, such as dildos or butt plugs, or they could be everyday items.


Melissaphiles get a buzz out of bees, wasps and other stingy things, with some people enjoying the risk of being stung while others enjoy actually being stung.


The obsession of menstrual blood.


A fetish for being tied up or restrained.


A fetish for introducing people to sexual activities they haven’t previously experienced, and of experiencing new sexual activities.

Micro fetish

We’ve had macro fetish, and now here’s the polar opposite: a fetish for being small or for having sexual partners who are much smaller than you.


Mixophiles are consensual voyeurs: they get off on seeing other people naked or having sex, but they don’t need the extra thrill of spying without consent.

Monster Fetish

A fetish for being or being with monsters or other non-human creatures.


An advanced form of bondage in which a person is partially or fully cocooned in plastic wrap, a body bag, tape, bandages, or other wraps. This process leaves the body completely restricted and immobilized.

Mysophiles are turned on by dirt and filth, often in the form of soiled underwear.
