Ligyrophilia: Arousal from Loud Noises

Ligyrophilia is a paraphilia that involves sexual arousal from loud noises. This may include sounds such as thunder, fireworks, or even loud music. While it is not a common kink, those who have ligyrophilia find that the loud noise enhances their sexual experience.

The Science Behind Ligyrophilia

There is not much scientific research on ligyrophilia specifically, but it is thought to be related to the body’s physiological response to stress. When we experience a loud noise, our body releases adrenaline and other hormones that can increase arousal and sexual desire. This may explain why some people find that loud noises enhance their sexual experiences.

  • Use ear protection if necessary to prevent hearing damage.
