We know you penned it in your diary already, but in case it has slipped your mind, it’s International Fetish Day (20 January).

So get your PVC catsuit out of storage and settle in for a fun Friday night.

And if you fancy trying something new, we’ve handpicked 15 fetishes that we bet you didn’t even know existed.

1. Actirasty

Becoming aroused by the sun’s rays. 

Probably not one for the Brits.

2. Climacophilia

Becoming aroused by falling down a flight of stairs. 

How do you even find out you are into that? 

3. Coprophilia

Becoming aroused by faeces and defecation. 

Enough said.

4. Lithophilia

Becoming aroused by stone or gravel. 

Nothing like a driveway to get us in the mood.

5. Formicophilia

Becoming aroused by insects or the idea of insects nibbling on your body. 

Stumbling upon an ant’s nest must be the ultimate fantasy. 

6. Nasolingus

Becoming aroused by licking or sucking on someone’s nose and consuming whatever comes out. 

Cold and flu season must be interesting. 

8. Nebulophilia 

Becoming aroused by fog. 

That limited visibility though.

9. Psellismophilia 

They say there is something out there for everyone. 

10. Psychorophilia 

Becoming aroused by being cold or watching people who are cold. 

At least it saves on the heating bills.

11. Pubephilia 

Becoming aroused by female pubic hair.

Huzzah! No more waxing! 

12. Stygiophilia 

Becoming aroused by the idea of hellfire and damnation. 

Hot. Literally.

13. Titillagnia 

Becoming aroused by tickling other people. 

Mr Tickle is boyfriend goals. 

14. Urophilia 

Becoming aroused by urine or urinating on others.

We’ve definitely all become more familiar with this one in recent weeks.

15. Zoophilia 

Becoming aroused by animals rather than humans. 

Presumably they are more distressed by Planet Earth ending than the rest of us.

These fetishes are discussed in “Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us” by Jesse Bering and were published on The Huffington Post.
