Definition - What does Parthenophilia mean?

Parthenophilia is the sexual interest in or arousal by virgins in particular. The paraphilia can be experienced by both men and women. It is most common in men.

Kinkly explains Parthenophilia

Those who experience parthenophilia experience a sexual arousal related to things, more specifically people, that are untouched and pure. The arousal or attraction hinges on the virginity and pureness of the other individual. The arousal might be related to possession, in that the fetishist is the first to touch or "defile" the pure virgin, thus claiming possession or marking territory.
