Grumpy Book Grrrl

a writer and reader


In-between our weird Freaky Friday book reviews for strange erotica/smut, we try and shake things up by doing blogs about other “freaky” things. We did the doppelganger blog and the recent obscure (and gross) blog about freaky foods. Now, we briefly turn our focus to fetishes. Don’t be afraid now. Go to your special place, light a candle, say your safe word, and here we go…

We’ll go easy on you with the first one.

Dendrophilia: Sexual attraction to trees. Now, some of the information you find online about these things show real pictures of people and we don’t want to be… insensitive… to people’s personal choices. Ahem. So, I think this gif is safe to share to demonstrate what we are talking about here.


Yes, some people have a real, sexual attraction to trees and take “tree-hugging” to a new extreme.

Autonepiophilia: Sexual fetish that involves role-playing as an infant. The focus is especially on wearing diapers and appears to usually involve women acting as the dominant “mother” figure and men as the infant.

I think this couple has “come out” publicly with this lifestyle, so here is an example:


Oh dear. If you would like further details on this fetish, here you go.

Mechaphilia: A sexual attraction to cars or other vehicles. Here is a public story about a man who claims to have had sex with 1,000 cars.

“I appreciate beauty and I go a little bit beyond appreciating the beauty of a car only to the point of what I feel is an expression of love,” he said.


“Maybe I’m a little bit off the wall but when I see movies like Herbie and Knight Rider, where cars become loveable, huggable characters it’s just wonderful.


“I’m a romantic. I write poetry about cars, I sing to them and talk to them just like a girlfriend. I know what’s in my heart and I have no desire to change.”


He added: “I’m not sick and I don’t want to hurt anyone, cars are just my preference.”

Hey, whatever fires your engine up. As long as you aren’t hurting anybody.



Knismolagnia: An arousal to being tickled. Me, I’ll punch someone if they tickle me. It’s involuntary. I just have to get away from the tickling. I can’t imagine physically being able to sit still long enough to breathe, let alone get off on this. But it’s a thing.

Actirasty: Getting turned on by the sun’s rays.


This is a new one to me. How does this even work? This article might give you a few ideas (no graphic material, I promise, although there is a “pup play” article near the bottom of the page).

Okay, I think I’ve had enough and freaked myself out a-plenty for this week. We plan to do a Part Two sometime soon involving fetishes that people choose to partake in rather than feel compelled to – with book suggestions to accompany them as well!

Until next time, stay freaky, but maybe not TOO freaky, eh?
