Raptophilia

Definition - What does Raptophilia mean?

Raptophilia is the Latin-derived equivalent of biastophilia, which is a paraphilia involving assault and rape. Sexual arousal and satisfaction depend on the terrified reaction of the victim. Like a raptor, a person afflicted with raptophilia needs to seize their sexual partner and have a forced sexual encounter. The ideal sexual encounter involves rape.

Kinkly explains Raptophilia

Raptophilia can manifest itself in a person's fantasies and urges. Someone with raptophilia need not necessarily act on these violent urges. However, controlling one's urges is easier said than done. This is why raptophilia is considered one of the more extreme paraphilias, and requires the consistent intervention of a clinical professional. It is necessary for a person to refrain from acting out these extreme urges because it harms others.

  • A woman isn't a whore for wanting pleasure. If it were unnatural, we would not be born with such drives.
