More About Doraphilia

Doraphilia is part of a group of fetishes that center around clothing. People with doraphilia are sexually aroused by the feeling of fur on their skin or by looking at other people wearing fur. The pleasure behind doraphilia is similar to that of a leather fetish: fur appears as a second skin, and the sensations provided by fur are more intense than those coming from human skin alone.

The most famous case of doraphilia comes from the 1870 semi-autobiographical novel Venus in Furs by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, in which a man becomes enthralled by a dominant woman who loves to wear fur.
