Scatophagia refers to the ingestion of feces, often as a sign of submission.

Scatophagia is a term used in psychology to describe a paraphilia or sexual fetish in which a person becomes sexually aroused by feces or the act of defecation. It is considered a form of sexual deviance and is often associated with other paraphilias or mental health disorders.

Examples of scatophagia may include:

  1. Obsessive thoughts or fantasies involving feces or defecation.
  2. Sexual arousal or pleasure from watching someone defecate or being defecated on.
  3. Sexual arousal or pleasure from eating or playing with feces.
  4. Using feces as a part of sexual play or incorporating it into sexual acts.
  5. Obsessively collecting or hoarding feces or other bodily waste.

Scatophagia is considered a rare and unusual sexual behavior, and its exact prevalence is difficult to determine. It can be associated with other mental health disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, or personality disorders.

It is important to note that scatophagia is not considered a socially acceptable behavior, and it can have negative consequences on an individual's relationships, social life, and mental health. Individuals with scatophagia may experience feelings of shame, guilt, or isolation and may benefit from seeking professional help to manage their sexual behaviors and associated mental health issues.
