Definition - What does Rhabdophilia mean?

Rhabdophilia is a sexual fetish in which an individual is sexually interested in or aroused by being flogged or beaten. The fetish covers sexual urges, fantasies, and preferences.

Kinkly explains Rhabdophilia

Rhabdophilia is a fairly common fetish within certain communities. Individuals with rhabdophilia generally spend a significant amount of time thinking or fantasizing about being beaten or flogged by another. The type of flogger used might play a role in the fantasy, though not always. Unlike sadism, rhabdophilists fantasize about being flogged or beaten rather than performing the same act on others.

  • You know, when I see a good-looking man, the first thing I think about is sex. I want to see him naked, and I imagine running my hands impatiently over his hot body.

    I can’t help it: it’s just how I am.
