Definition - What does Formicophilia mean?

Formicophilia is a type of zoophilia where an individual derives sexual arousal or pleasure from having small insects crawl around and nibble on their genitals.

Kinkly explains Formicophilia

An individual who experiences formicophilia is aroused by having small insects, such as ants, crawl over their genitals. Formicophilia can also describe the pleasure derived from causing someone else psychological distress by having insects crawl over them.

Formicophilia is not limited to the genitals. Some people experience sexual pleasure from having the insects interact with non-erogenous parts of their bodies. Sometimes people who experiment with formicophilia will have the insects enter different orifices until sexual climax is reached.
