Coprophilia

Regarded as easily one of the most bizarre and controversial sexual acts in all of history, the act of Coprophilia is known as a sense of arousal and pleasure stemming from the presence of stool, typically in human form. This odd form of sexual activity has a Greek origin, with the root words scat/scatophilia referring to the excrement (feces) of mankind. Despite the bizarre affiliation, it is indeed documented in medical journals including the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders publication. That being said, these publications as well notate as the practice of Coprophilia being extremely vague and elusive in nature.

Fetish Classification

Many historians have argued whether or not the act of Coprophilia is considered a sexual fetish or a legitimate sexual act with normal circumstances. Some argue that because it has mystical worship-like characteristic, it should be deemed a fetish, however other argues that because it has been documented well enough to claim its legitimacy, enough people practice it to consider it a normalized sexual activity/practice. Whether or not these historical philosophers will continue to debate it out over the next few decades or come to a common agreement is anyone’s guess. One thing is indeed for sure, that it is somewhat prevalent in society today, at least in the United States

Prevalence

In the United States there has indeed been one major reported instance of Coprophilia being practiced by couples. This goes under the name of the Cleveland Steamer, and is known as one partner excreting their feces on another partner’s chest. This typically is acted out in the fashion of a full blown finishing orgasm; however it is feces being excreted instead of semen or vaginal discharge. Some couples even it take it multiple steps further by once they have secreted their feces they roll up and down using their anus to spread the fecal material over the surface of the partner’s chest. This is known specifically as the Rolling Brownout, which is seen as the lead-on following the term of the Cleveland Steamer.
