Definition - What does Klismaphilia mean?

Klismaphilia is a paraphilia whereby an individual is sexually interested in or aroused by the entrance of liquids into the anus or rectum. Most often this is accomplished through the use of enemas. This particular fetish is classified as a paraphilia due to its implications on the health of regular practitioners. Improper technique and unsanitary substances can lead to cramping and life-threatening complications.

Kinkly explains Klismaphilia

Klismaphilia is the term coined by Dr. Joanne Denko to describe the activites in two client case files in the early 1970s. "Klisma" is Greek for enema. Enemas provide a mechanical distension of the rectum and, as a result, cause the stimulation of nerve endings that supply the pelvic organs. Though physiologically explained, the psychological implications of klismaphilia are largely unknown. It has been suggested that drugs or alcohol administerd via the rectum are absorbed more readily into the bloodstream and take effect more quickly. Many klismaphiliacs use various solutions in their enema concoctions including everything from drugs to household liquids like coffee.
