More About Defilement

Defilement can take many forms. People who enjoy defilement may sully or rip their own clothes, or the clothes worn by an intimate partner. They may also like to sully or tear fetish items, like underwear or stockings. They might deliberately mess up their own make-up, or the make-up worn by an intimate partner. They might also defile the images of celebrities they fancy, perhaps by tearing photos in magazines or by drawing on them.

While anophelorastia is the general term for arousal from defilement, there are also some other terms used to describe this arousal. Arousal from self-defilement is known as automysophilia, while arousal from the soiling of clothing is known as mysophilia.
