What is Anolingus?
Anolingus, also known as reptile licking or lizard licking, is a paraphilia in which an individual experiences sexual arousal from licking lizards. This fetish is considered to be rare and unusual, but it is not harmful as long as it is practiced safely and consensually.
The Science Behind Anolingus
There is limited research on anolingus, but it is believed to be a result of classical conditioning. This occurs when someone associates a sexual response with a non-sexual stimulus, such as licking a lizard. The brain then creates a connection between the two, leading to sexual arousal when the individual engages in the behavior.
Safe Practices for Anolingus
It is important to practice safe anolingus to avoid harming the lizard or the individual engaging in the fetish. Here are some tips:
- Only use non-toxic lizards, such as anoles or geckos.
- Do not use lizards that are too small or too large.
- Make sure the lizard is clean and healthy.
- Do not lick the lizard too hard or for too long.
- Wash your mouth thoroughly before and after the act.
- Do not engage in anolingus if you have any open wounds or sores in your mouth.
