Definition - What does Antholagnia mean?

Antholagnia is a sexual condition where individuals are aroused by flowers. People with antholagnia may become sexually aroused at the sight of real flowers, by looking at images of flowers, fantasizing about flowers, smelling flowers, or any combination of these things.

The term antholagnia comes from the Greek words anthos, meaning flower, and lagneia, meaning lust.

Kinkly explains Antholagnia

People with antholagnia typically have a preference for certain flowers, just as most people are sexually aroused by certain body types. They are likely to become aroused while visiting a florist shop, a floral nursery, or a botanical garden. They may also seek out images of flowers online for sexual gratification.

Most people with antholagnia learn to manage their condition and enjoy healthy sex lives. They may even use the scent of flowers during foreplay or intercourse. However, if antholagnia starts to interfere with a person’s professional or personal life, they may wish to seek treatment. Treatment for antholagnia may consist of cognitive or behavioral therapies, psychoanalysis, or hypnosis.
