What is Necrobiophilia?
Necrobiophilia is a type of paraphilia where a person experiences intense sexual arousal from engaging in sexual activities with a living person pretending to be dead. This practice is also known as pseudonecrophilia.
While necrobiophilia may seem disturbing to some people, it is important to understand that it is a consensual act between two adults. The person playing the role of the dead body is often referred to as the “corpse” or “cadaver” and may be dressed in a way that resembles a dead body, such as wearing a mortician’s gown or being covered in a sheet.
Some people who engage in necrobiophilia may also incorporate other elements into their play, such as embalming fluids or makeup to make the “corpse” look more realistic. However, it is important to note that these practices can be dangerous and should only be done under the guidance of a professional.
The Psychology of Necrobiophilia
There is limited research on necrobiophilia, but some psychologists believe that it may stem from a desire for control or a fascination with death. It is also possible that some people who engage in necrobiophilia may have experienced trauma or loss in their lives that has influenced their sexual preferences.
It is important to note that engaging in necrobiophilia does not necessarily mean that a person has a mental health disorder. However, if a person feels distressed or experiences negative consequences as a result of their behavior, they may benefit from seeking professional help.
Consent and Safety in Necrobiophilia
As with any sexual activity, consent is essential in necrobiophilia. Both partners should discuss their boundaries and establish a safe word before engaging in play. It is also important to have a plan in place in case of an emergency or if one partner becomes uncomfortable during the activity.
It is important to note that some of the practices associated with necrobiophilia, such as using embalming fluids or makeup, can be dangerous and should only be done under the guidance of a professional. Both partners should also be aware of the risks associated with engaging in sexual activities that involve breath play or other forms of asphyxiation.
