Salirophilia is a sexual fetish or paraphilia in which erotic pleasure is gained from soiling or disheveling the object of one’s desire, usually an attractive man or woman. It may involve tearing or damaging their clothing, covering them in mud or filth, or messing up their hair or makeup. The fetish does not involve harming or injuring the subject, it simply consists of ruining their appearance.
Salirophilia is related to wet and messy fetishism, bukkake, omorashi, mysophilia, urolagnia and coprophilia, but extends to other areas such a forcing the partner to wear torn or poorly fitting clothing and other actions that make them appear unattractive.
The fetish sometimes manifests itself in the defacing of statues or pictures of attractive people, especially celebrities or fictional characters. It is common to refer to the practice involving ejaculating on a photo as “facepainting”. The fetishist finds this sexually exciting, rather than mere vandalism. They sometimes form collections of defaced art for future enjoyment. A video of the fetishist ejaculating on a picture of someone or a photo depicting the result is known colloquially as a “tribute”.
The term comes from the French for soiling, salir. In cases where the fetish is obsessive it is called saliromania. It is frequently confused with salophilia, an attraction to salt or salty things (especially body sweat) that derives from the Latin for salt, sal.
Mysophilia refers explicitly to soiled or dirty material or people. Mysophiliacs may find dirt, soiled underwear, faeces, or vomit to be sexually arousing.
It is possible (although not necessary) for people with mysophilia to be aroused by unclean locations, such as alleyways, dirty rooms, filthy toilets; wearing the same clothing for many days at a time; or not bathing, sometimes for a few days, or possibly even weeks.
Wet and messy fetish (WAM), sometimes known as sploshing, is a form of sexual fetishism whereby a person becomes aroused when substances are deliberately and generously applied to the naked skin, predominantly the face, or to the clothes people are wearing. Several websites are dedicated to WAM fandom.
Messy substances can include whipped cream, mud, shaving foam, custard, baked beans, ketchup, ice cream, pudding, chocolate sauce, peanut butter, Japanese-style lotion, paint, oil or gunge/slime, cake batter etc. A subject will often be pelted with cream pies, slimed or sit on cakes. Wet substances are mainly water but can also include other liquids such as fruit juice, milk or alcohol (usually beer).
Bodily fluids such as feces, urine, vomit, semen, and female ejaculate are not considered part of WAM. The former three are typically considered coprophilia, urophilia, and emetophilia; urophilia is somewhat mainstream in pornography.
