Definition - What does Taphephilia mean?

Taphephilia is a fetish or paraphilia in which an individual becomes sexually aroused by the fantasy or act of being buried alive. People who have taphephilia become aroused by closed spaces that most people would find claustrophobic.

Kinkly explains Taphephilia

Usually taphephilic people are considered submissive because being enclosed without being able to escape induces the feeling of helplessness. Being enclosed also changes a person's breathing, which can give the feeling of being high. People act out this paraphilia by being put into latex or vinyl sleepsacks, boxes, bags, gas masks and other fetish wear.
