A petticoat fetish refers to a sexual attraction towards individuals who wear petticoats. In some cases, it can also refer to the act of wearing a petticoat for sexual play. Petticoat fetishes are extremely common among the transgender and crossdresser community. This fetish is often involved in maid, call-girl, or dom-sub scenarios.
In Victorian times, a petticoat fetish was used as a form of sexual discipline and punishment.
Individuals with petticoat fetishes are mostly attracted to the garment’s distinctively feminine cut. Some people are also attracted by the petticoat’s silk texture, frills, and bows. This type of fetish is also very much present in forced feminization where a man is forced by his Dom to wear this garment for extended period of times or in public. In these situations, the submissive party is required to wear a petticoat during corporal punishment like spanking. The garment can also be worn for erotic and public humiliation.
Individuals with a petticoat fetish can also be sexually aroused by wearing the garment themselves.
