Golden showers: Perverted conduct?

Urophilia, when a person is sexually aroused with the sight or thought of urine, is a type of paraphilia which is – bear with us – an unusual sexual interest.

“There is nothing in psychological literature which suggests people who are into golden showers have any deficiencies,” Dr Mark Griffiths tells MirrorOnline.

Dr Griffiths , a chartered psychologist and Professor of Behavioural Addiction at Nottingham Trent University, is an expert in areas of abnormal, social and health psychology with particular emphasis on behavioural addictions, including paraphilias.

In a blog post titled, ” Urine demand: A beginner’s guide to urophilia ” Dr Griffiths examines this fetish in full.

Your first question regarding urophilia might very well be, “why though?”

Wee is waste and any erotic attachment to bathroom habits seemingly goes against everything how we;re taught to view and treat many of our bodily functions.

So what does a urophiliac get out of it?

It turns out, there is still a lot to learn about a urophiliac’s motivation.

What Dr Griffith’s research does state is, “it appears urophilia is mostly likely associated with sadomasocism.”

Dr Griffiths also points out how, in a 1982 medical journal, it was found “urine fulfilled many different functions for urophiles.

These included, ” it serving as a fetishistic object, being used to humiliate or be humiliated (i.e., through urinating on another person or being urinated upon), and/or capturing the spirit of a sexual partner.”

It’s not just about being urinated on, either.

“Urophiliacs typically derive sexual pleasure from urinating on (and / or being urinated upon by) another person,” writes Dr Griffiths.

“Some urophiliacs may also bathe in urine, enjoy smelling people in urine-soaked clothes, and/or engage in urophagia (i.e., drinking the urine).”

It is typically men who are urophiliacs. In fact, paraphilias tend to be more prevalent in men, Dr Griffiths explains.

It’s not just the act itself which may be sexually stimulating for urophilicas.

“Some urophiliacs may also experience sexual arousal from having a full bladder and/or feel sexually attracted to someone else who has a full bladder (‘bladder desperation) or wets themselves (i.e. ‘panty wetting’ or wetting the bed).”
