Hand Fetish

Quirofilia - the official name for a hand fetish

For all hand fetishists

There's a lot of talk about different erogenous zones - but that doesn't mean you should leave out the hardier parts of your physique entirely! Your hands do a great deal of work for you, and the bedroom is no exception. They're your primary tools for masturbation, for manually stimulating your partners and for getting to know a body intimately well - yours or someone else's. Look after them and learn how to use them well, and they will serve you beautifully. Some people also have a kink for other people's hands, of course - the hands can tell you a lot about someone's personality, and there's something extremely erotic about watching someone you're attracted to working with theirs.

Hand fetish: is it normal?

If you think it is, then it is. If you’re having fun and enjoying your kinky hand encounters then it’s all fine. If your fetish worries you then get in touch with a medical professional.

What causes a hand fetish?

There is no known reason for having this fetish. It can come from a preference for a certain physical feature or it may be that you learn to love hands because they’re connected to practises that turn you on like smothering or choking. It doesn't really matter, as long as you're enjoying your fetish, you don't really need to know why you have it. Just have fun!

Do men have a hand fetish or is it just women?

Anyone can have one. Some people love nails, others love palms. Some love rough, gnarly hands others love soft, manicured hands. It just comes down to personal preference.

    Foot fetishes are actually very common, and are amongst the most frequently mentioned fetishes in popular media. The feet are a body part sometimes associated with smell and unattractiveness, which gets some people's taboo centres working. They're also erogenous zones for many, particularly as most people aren't that used to having them touched. Boots, heels and other footwear are precisely the kind of sexualised accessories so many people fall for, meaning that the feet inside them can also end up as the object of someone's desire. There are tonnes of feet videos and feet pictures online for those who can't get enough of pretty feet. If you have a foot fetish, you might find that you're especially drawn to a certain kind of foot: large feet, small feet, ones in see-through shoes or bare feet.
    When you ask a roomful of people what their favourite of their own features are, chances are that a sizeable proportion of them will say their eyes - and plenty of people also cite eyes as their favourite of their partner's features. They're a huge part of how humans perceive faces, and we do a massive amount of communication with their eyes. This means that they hold a significance in terms of a kink dynamic, too. Some dominant partners will ask their submissives to hold eye contact throughout a scene, or to specifically avoid making eye contact as a way of heightening the feel of the dynamic.
    If popular culture is to be believed, you can split cisgendered straight men into three categories - boob guys, ass guys and leg guys. The reality is a bit more complicated (and a lot less cis and heteronormative!) but it's still true that a shapely pair of legs are a huge turn-on for a lot of people. For femme-identified people stockings and suspenders with a pair of high heels are a great way to set your legs off, and short skirts are always a safe bet when you really want to turn heads and grab attention from someone in particular. Masc-identified folks might like to look into cargo shorts, which are a particularly flattering length for showing off strong calves!
