I miss the old net, there were a lot of fascinating people on there, some real, some not so much, but it was nice to know that I was not alone in this journey. Given the apparent rarity, I doubt that this type of fetish or paraphilia will ever be the topic of academic or clinical study. We all were young pups when we watched the women in our life, pin, curl and scarf and go about their business. I have no idea where the attraction to rollers, pins, curling irons, etc came from, i believe I was simply born with it. As far as I can ascertain, there is almost nothing in the academic literature on knismolagnia.
Another sub-type of trichophilia is men that get sexual pleasure and arousal from women that are abnormally hairy including but not limited to overly hairy pubic hair, underarm hairhairy arms, hairy legs, and hair around nipples.
As far as I can ascertain, there is almost nothing in the academic literature on knismolagnia. Many cultures regard a woman's hair to be erotic. Also, the beginning of our fetishes often corresponds with puberty, when our sexual feelings first emerge, and we don't really know enough to analyze what is happening to us. Sitting there waiting, nicely gowned I'm going to give you a Hollywood Permanent wave and a lovely curly hairstyle. Over the years I have written about many different body part fetishes and paraphilias including a number involving human hair or the lack of it. I had never had sexual feelings until I saw the perm pictures.
