Erotophilia

Updated: AUGUST 18, 2017

Erotophilia is a term that refers to a positive relationship with sex. It is on the opposite end of the spectrum from erotophobia. Erotophiles tend to have a more active sex live. Their sexual involvment generally begins at an earlier age than their erotophobic counterparts. They also have a tendency to be more body aware which can lead to improved sexual health. Erotophilia is a term that could be applied to many individuals who identify as "sex positive"; researchers occasionally use the two terms interchangeably.
