Hyphephilia

Definition - What does Hyphephilia mean?

Hyphephilia is sexual arousal from touching or rubbing hair, skin, leather, fur, or fabric. This is similar to doraphilia, and, depending on the circumstances, can be a form of touchism.

Kinkly explains Hyphephilia

Some people with hyphephilia need to feel and rub the hair or skin of their partners to achieve sexual gratification. Others simply prefer the sensation of materials like fur, leather, or certain type of fabric. Those who do this in a non-consensual manner are engaging more specifically in what is called touchism. Doroplilia refers only to touching things related to animals like fur, leather, and skin.
