Dendrophilia

Definition - What does Dendrophilia mean?

Dendrophilia is a paraphilia where an individual is sexually aroused by trees. The term translates literally as "love of trees," but has been adopted by sexology to describe some people's fetishistic interest in trees.

Dendrophilia may also be known as arborphilia.

Kinkly explains Dendrophilia

Dendrophilia has been mentioned in a few psychology texts and books about unusual sexual practices. In the "Encyclopedia of Unusual Sexual Practices," Dr. Brenda Love writes that in many ancient cultures, trees were seen as symbols of fertility. There are also a few modern-day cases of humans attempting to have sex with trees. However, whether this fetish actually exists isn't entirely clear, as there are no academic or clinical studies published about it.

  • On the nights they went to bed at the same time, Rocco would lie there and watch her go to the closet, watch her choose either silky slips or mannish shirts, like running up sex flags from across the room.
