When it comes to getting off sexually, some folks like things that are a little… well, let’s just say different. And if you, or a “friend,” consistently have a sexual response to an inanimate object or non-traditional sexual item/activity you might have, what is known as, a sexual fetish.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying, or being interested in cultivating, a sexual fetish—as long as the behavior does not infringe upon the rights of others or impede on your own daily interactions. Sex is meant to be fun and make you squirt—the more, the better. Since maximizing your “nut” is the goal, finding out what you like to do (or watch) is a must.

What is photo exhibitionism? Photo exhibitionism is the act of exposing yourself to an audience, strangers or people you know, for sexual arousal. A photo exhibitionist gets off on the element of shock they anticipate the receiver will experience when they view the image. A photo exhibitionist is also aroused by the fact that countless unknown people will see their most intimate parts.
Types of photo exhibitionism. There are three categories for this fetish: appropriate, inappropriate and group activity. Appropriate photo exhibitionism occurs between two consenting adults who’ve agreed to engage in photo sharing or receiving. Inappropriate photo exhibitionism is when the images are unsolicited (ex. receiving a random dick or tit picture from someone without a request or pre-approval). Last, group photo exhibitionism occurs when an individual joins a site or group where images are exchanged.

Freak v. Fetish. Sending a few ass shots does not make you a photo exhibitionist. In the world of sexual fetishes, a one-off is described as “engaging in fetish activity.” In order to have a true photo exhibitionism fetish you must consistently use the images as a source of sexual pleasure.
You’re a photo exhibitionist if you…
• Have a favorite body part that you like to expose. For men it’s often the entirety of the penis, with a particular emphasis on showcasing the length and girth of their member. Women tend to showcase body parts such as nipples or butts.
• Share these images in an unsuspecting manner, such as sending a randomly titled text or email.
• Compartmentalize your special interest by creating a separate email, phone or social media account that is dedicated to the topic. These accounts tend to represent an “alter ego” and embody your sexual personality.
Doing it well (engage in healthy photo exhibitionism by)…
1. Identifying a part of the body that you are proud to share and are comfortable receiving feedback on.
2. Finding an appropriate individual, group or venue to engage in safe image exchange. (NOTE: All participants must be legal adults.)
3. Engage in activity for personal sexual pleasure, not validation.
