Definition - What does Vicarphilia mean?

Vicarphilia is a paraphilia that involves the response of a sexual arousal to hearing the narrative of another individual's sexual encounters or experiences. As the name suggests, individuals who experience this type of paraphilia are aroused by living vicariously through another as they share their experience.

Kinkly explains Vicarphilia

This paraphilia is very similar to narratophilia, although it differs in that the paraphilia often hinges on the verbal explanation of another individual. Whereas narratophilia is reading the written experiences of another. Typically, those who experience vicarphilia are are attracted to hearing the stories of individuals that they find lead exciting lives different from their own.

    - Henry Louis Mencken
