Watch out ladies, your man might actually be getting turned on by your farts!
I'm not one for sex fetishes, but I'm well aware that a ton of them exists. Even so, I wasn't exactly prepared to hear about the latest one, eproctophilia--a fart fetish! Yes girl, you heard right. That's an actual fetish. In fact, psychology professor and researcher at the UK's Nottingham Trent University Mark Griffiths actually released the first comprehensive study on this. I don't know about you, but It's kind of hard for me to process the fact that people out there actually get sexually aroused by funky smells. Come on, that's just gross!

The strange study, "Eproctophilia in a Young Adult Male" by Mark D. Griffiths, was published in Archives of Sexual Behavior this July. Now here's where it gets creepy. The subject wasn't some old loco from lord knows where, he's a 22-year old man from Illinois who was given the pseudonym Brad. This scares the crap out of me because this could mean that there a lot more men out there in there twenties or thirties, posing as normal and actually getting sexually excited whenever you throw a pedo!
"This is a paraphilia in which people are sexually aroused by flatulence. Therefore, eproctophiles are said to spend an abnormal amount of time thinking about farting and flatulence and have recurring intense sexual urges and fantasies involving farting and flatulence," Griffith wrote. Oh if you think that's bad, you have to read how "Brad" realized he had a fart fetish to begin with. "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. It was rather appealing in sound and I found myself fixating on it."
I'm sorry ... but that's just weird. In fact, I still need another second to take this all in. So lemme get this straight ... there are grown men out there that actually get sexually turned on (possibly even orgasm) whenever their partner farts? Geez! Could you imagine getting stuck with a basket case like that? I'd rather die single than have to deal with a dude with a fart fetish--that's for sure!
