Scientists have recorded the first case of a man being sexually turned on by farts.
The man who has been given the pseudonym Brad says his fetish started when a girl he fancied farted in front of him.
“This blew my mind. Prior to that, I’d never really considered it.
I knew by simple biology that girls farted, but hearing that the girl I had been fawning over was capable of such a thing sparked a strange interest in me,” he says.
This rare and bizarre sexual fetish is known as “eproctophilia”.
Brad’s bizarre medical case is reported by a British psychologist Professor Mark Griffiths, a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, and published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour.
Brad, a 22-year-old man from Illinois, USA, who has a degree in fine arts says
“(I’m) not sexually attracted to flatulence per se, but the person releasing the flatulence”.
Brad says he enjoys both the sound and smell of flatulence
“It was rather appealing in sound and I found myself fixating on it. At first, I didn’t want to admit I was into his farting, but eventually I decided to experiment.
I set up a bet at some point and intentionally lost, with the wager being the right to fart in the loser’s face for a week. I continued to lose such bets once every few weeks for about two years.”
