Jan Posted by drmarkgriffiths. In a blog, I looked at fingernail fetishism. As the Kinkly website notes:. If the fetish hinges on long nails, the fetish is sometimes referred to as onychophilia. As with all fetishes, preferences vary! In my article I mentioned the the only specific case of fingernail fetishism that I found in the academic literature was a paper in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, by Dr. Austin McSweeny who successfully treated a young male fingernail fetishist using hypnosis although other sexologists such as Willem Stekel and Martin Kafka had mentioned such a fetish in passing.
The same case study was cited by Dr. Jesse Baring in a blog on fingernail fetishism for Scientific American. He noted:. Alexander asserts:. For the nails are not like any other part of the hand in that they are not composed of living material; they are made, rather, of a tough protective protein called alpha-keratin.
Given these definitions, I would argue that amychophilia is more akin to masochism than onychophilia because the root of amychophilia is in the feeling provided rather than what is doing the scratching. She was writing in response to an she had received:. I beat off to pictures of nails and I have conversations with female friends about their nails. I wanted to know if you can make a video about this type of fetish. Seeing as not a lot of people talk about or show interest in this fetish, am I weird?
She concludes by saying:. The clinical term for a fingernail fetish is onychophilia. For others, it might be their extreme length that is most erotic. Aggrawal A. Alexander, S.

According to Dr. Fingernail fetishes are certainly referenced by leading academics and clinicians in the sexology field although most of the references to it point out its existence but give little information with respect to incidence, prevalence, or etiological development. For instance, the Austrian psychologist Dr. Similarly, Dr. Martin Kafka in one of his many papers in the Archives of Sexual Behavior on sexual fetishism also made reference to the fetishization of fingernails without giving any detail:.
Having carried out an extensive literature search on academic databases, the only case of fingernail fetishism that I was able to locate was a paper in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, by Dr. Austin McSweeny who successfully treated a young male fingernail fetishist using hypnosis. I also came across a Spanish paper written by Dr.
The paper discussed the case of a year Spanish male and the role of depression, paranoid anxiety, and pathological mourning in the development of masculine perversion and fetishism. The only reason I mention this paper is that the author mentioned that one of the fetishes along with his masochistic fantasies was for painted nails.
Anil Aggrawal in his book Forensic and Medico-legal Aspects of Sexual Crimes and Unusual Sexual Practices reported a truly bizarre case involving necrophilia and fingernails. Citing from a book by Dr. Masters and Dr. In a blog on fetishism , I wrote at length about a study led by Dr G. Scorolli University of Bologna, Italy on the relative prevalence of different fetishes using online fetish form data. They reported that some of the sites featured references to nail fetishes comprising a total of group members.
In my research for this article, I also came across lots of self-confessed fingernail fetishists. Here are a few examples:. These are just a few of the many I have come across. There are a of similarities in the first four extracts which may be because they all come from the same online forum. The fetish appears to have begun in early childhood, and appears to have developed through associative pairing i. The final extract comes from a different person who unlike the other fetishists wants to eradicate his fetish.
Most fingernail fetishist s that I read were happy living with their preferred fetish. New York: The Julian Press. Tabares, J. La perversion fetichista: Del duelo patologico a la identification maniaca alienante. Revista de Psicoanalisis de la Asociacion Psicoanalitica de Madrid, 36, Hand fetishism. Sep The paper was by Dr. Francesco Bianchi-Demicheli and three colleagues, and published in a issue of the journal Medical Science Monitor. The case involved a year old married man who was admitted to a psychiatric unit in February following a violent physical attack on his wife.
This as I have written about in a blog on somnophilia is not unheard of. Over the years of the marriage, the urge to control his paraphilic interest worsened. At the start of his marriage he used to give his wife sleeping pills that she consented to take.
However, the wife eventually refused to take the medication given by her husband. Consequently, the man began to surreptitiously administer sleeping pills the benzodiazepine Bromaezepam to his wife without her knowledge. The authors wrote that:. He subsequently received various neurological evaluations, including neuroimaging brain scans.
The authors reported that:. On a functional viewpoint, this brain network is known to sustain among others, the sense of self, body-image, and attention mechanisms. His neuropsychological exam was in line with this assumption. The patient was diagnosed with a moderate dysexecutive syndrome and a very specific body image disorder characterized by an incomplete mental image of his hands, mostly the right i. A good critique of this particular case study was by The Neurocritic who wrote that:. This might be suggestive of a neurodegenerative disorder, but that was not part of his diagnosis.
However, many other examples of impulsive sexual offenses are even less obviously related to neurological status e. Since the lesions were distributed and not focal, a final mystery is why the body image disturbance was confined to the right hand implying a left hemisphere origin. The Neurocritic concludes:. If the patient of Bianchi-Demicheli et al. Personally, I feel this paraphilic behaviour is just a sub-type of somnophilia or somnophilia overlapping with hand fetishism. Given the complete lack of case studies ion the clinical literature on somnophilia, who is to say that this case study is not representative of somnophiles more generally?
