Hamartophilia

Definition - What does Hamartophilia mean?

Hamartophilia refers to strong sensual urges resulting from doing wrong or going against the moral code of society. It brings to mind the likes of Bonnie and Clyde, who were partners in the bedroom and in crime. The danger of doing bad deeds gets the heart pumping from fear of being caught. For those with hamartophilia, danger also increases sensual desires.

Kinkly explains Hamartophilia

People with hamartophilia are often encouraged to go against good moral conduct just to experience excitement and sexual arousal. While there are different levels of “being bad,” it doesn't take away the possibility of hurting one's self and others. To minimize harm, it is a good idea to consult with a psychiatric professional on how to keep your urges in check.
