Pygmalionism: Sexual Arousal from Human-Like Statues or Images
Pygmalionism is a type of fetish or kink that involves sexual attraction or arousal from human-like statues or images. This fetish is named after the Greek mythological character Pygmalion, who fell in love with a statue he had created and prayed to the goddess Aphrodite to bring it to life. The goddess granted his wish and turned the statue into a living woman.
What is Pygmalionism?

What Causes Pygmalionism?
The exact cause of pygmalionism is unknown, but it is believed to be related to the way the brain processes sexual desire and attraction. Some experts suggest that it may be related to the way the brain associates sexual pleasure with visual stimuli, particularly those that resemble human-like figures.
Pygmalionism may also be related to a person’s experiences or upbringing. For example, some individuals may have developed this fetish as a result of exposure to art or sculptures at a young age, while others may have developed it as a coping mechanism for social anxiety or other psychological issues.
