This particular paraphilia is considered hazardous to the health of the belonephiliac. It may lead to excessive cutting or self mutilation in an effort to gain sexual pleasure. This hazard can also be applied to the belonephiliac's sexual partner. Belonephilia may be related to activities that hinge on sadism and masochism.
