More About Acousticophilia
Acousicophilia differs from melolagnia, a sexual arousal from music, in that acousticophilia can involve any type of sound, not just music. Acousticophilia can be damaging to an individual if a common noise is one that triggers sexual arousal. For some, the preference can be so strong that climax is not possible without the presence of the certain sound.
