Definition - What does Harmatophilia mean?

Harmatophilia is the fetish or preference for people who break rules or commit mistakes. These errors can sexually arouse someone with harmatophilia. Often, these mistakes encourage a person to take on the leadership role. A position of power or authority comes with perks, including the thrill of making the move and being on top.

Kinkly explains Harmatophilia

Harmatophilia implies that harm may befall on the other party, stemming from breaking the rules or making mistakes. While this may be arousing for someone with harmatophilia, it does not remove the risks that come with the defiant act or error. It is important to be conscious about what's happening, and make safety a priority.
