Survey reveals most searched fetishes for gay men

What do gay men like to do when no one is looking?

A new survey from XTube has revealed which fetishes float their gay members’ boats and, well, it’s an interesting mix of tastes.

Following the recent news that a lot of young adults enjoy the delights that porn offers, the world’s largest adult online community found that partialism (that’s focusing on a specific part of the body, such as toes or the butt) was the top fetish. Role play and narratophilia, known by the cool kids as “dirty talk”, rounded out the top three.

Popular with 7.31% of the vote was bondage, while voyeurism came in eighth place with 6.28%.

The survey, conducted with over 3,000 gay and bisexual members, also found that alongside exhibitionism, armpit worshipping (maschalagnia) and uniforms attraction, some other unknown names found their way into the ranking.

Ablutophilia which ranks 14th, involves sexual excitement from showers or baths, while coulrophilia (18th) is the sexual attraction and excitement for clowns… Each to their own.

Toonophilia, as in the sexual or romantic attraction of a cartoon or anime character, came in 23rd place with just 0.3% of the vote.

While we’re not entirely sold on a lot of these fetishes, it’s interesting to see what you lot are searching for in your alone time…
