Yeah. Seriously. Maybe this is why in recent years they’ve started creating mannequins with anatomically correct nipples. I’m guaranteeing most men, at some point in their lives, have gotten a boner and thought “damn, if only that were a real person..”. Anyways, I’m lumping the doll fetish and mannequin fetish into the same category, so bear with me. I reserve the right to branch them off into two separate fetishes at a later date, though.
Agalmatophilia itself is the sexual attraction to dolls, whether those dolls are Real Dolls, Barbies, or statues. As with any fetish, a person’s specific desires vary. One person may dress a mannequin up just to admire it, another may actually have sex with it; it all depends on the person. If you’ve ever seen the movie Lars and the Real Girl, you know how innocent this fetish can be.
The mannequin fetish is a very specific branch of agalmatophilia. I’ve found that fetishists generally enjoy the control that comes with changing the mannequins posture, clothing, and appearance in general.
I have a couple of theories about why some people are agalmatophiliacs. For starters, a doll or mannequin can’t reject you. Second, they also have inhumanly perfect measurements. Unless you see them at H&M. In that case their measurements are a little more realistic. Also, apparently Lady Gaga is a mannequin fetishist. You may have heard recently that she requires that a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair on tour with her at all times. I have no idea what that could possibly be used for. But she’s probably just completely batshit insane. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that Valeria Lukyanova (you may know her in the news as the Barbie girl) has some sort of doll fetish, or she’s just a great example of a person with body dysmorphic disorder. She is not to be confused with the similarly creepy Anastasiya Shpagina. Creepy. As. Fuck.
That’s about all I’ve got on this one for now. There are a few movies that I can think of that relate to this topic, so watch them if you want.
Movies Featuring Agalmatophilia:
Lars and the Real Girl
Clockwork Orange (the Moloko Milk Bar scene)
I had my breasts enhanced on Tuesday, despite prior illness. They tell me I’m about a D cup now, but I guess when the swelling goes down, I’ll know better! All I know is they look massive. The surgeon, John Siebert, did a pretty fantastic job from what I can tell. They’re symmetrical, natural looking, and mostly what I was going for. Again, it’s a bit too early to tell. My dressings haven’t needed to be changed, and I’m two days post-op. I’ve been almost completely out of it. They have me doped up on Valium (with a refill!) and Oxycodone, which makes me vomit. Not fun. I’m also totally exhausted and pretty dizzy, and can barely get up off the couch without help. As far as my implants, they are roughly 475-525CCs. I got the smooth, high-profile Mentor gels. They’re also known as gummy bears.
If you’d like to contribute to my recovery/surgery fund, you may do so by sending me a GiftRocket. You can also purchase my before and after photos. I’ve posted a reveal video on Clips4Sale if you’d like to see me take my bra off!
I’ve written other posts that are somewhat similar to this topic, but this post is meant for people looking into getting into webcam modeling, not necessarily those already in the industry. If you’re thinking about getting into the industry, these are things that you should consider before making a decision. This job is not easy. It’s not quick, easy money. It takes time to build a reputation, rapport, and get the hang of the webcam industry. There’s a lot to learn. There’s a lot of dedication and time required to truly be successful. Remember that this is a saturated industry, and it takes skill and time to make bank. Don’t believe the ads that tell you that you can make $10,000 a week. Or a month. You won’t… at least not to start with, and probably never, unless you do everything right. Even then, it’s a crapshoot.
You must have a healthy view of sexuality (fetishes included) and of yourself to be successful. Confidence is key. If you have a flaw that makes you self-conscious, you need to own it or accept that the sex industry is not for you. If you’re easily grossed out hearing about other peoples’ weird sexual fetishes, this job most likely is not for you. Thick skin is a requirement. If you judge your potential customers, they’re not going to spend money on you. Don’t judge, and don’t be a bitch when a guy confides in you.
2. Business Sense
Behind attitude, this the second most important thing you need to be successful. Everything you’ll do on a daily basis falls under this category. Customer service, sales, accounting, networking.. all of these things are imperative to financial success. I’m purposely being vague, but if you don’t know how to look up what business sense (or business acumen) is, you won’t be very successful in this industry. Just sayin’.
3. Willingness to Learn
If you want to be successful, you’ll have to do a lot of research. Be ready to read and even take notes. Use Google and the forum search function before asking for help. You’re going to want help from seasoned veterans in the industry at one point or another. Check your ego at the door when you need help, and remember your manners when asking for it.
When you work for yourself, you won’t make money if you don’t drag your ass out of bed in the morning (or afternoon). If you have trouble motivating yourself to go to work, start a research paper, getting to the gym… this job probably isn’t for you.
I think most of us know what furries are, but for those of you that don’t, I’m going to talk about the non-sexual aspects of furrydom before I mention the sexual.
First of all, furries are fictional characters that people generally play on MUCKS and MUSHES. MUCKS and MUSHES are online, text-based roleplaying games where each person plays a character. It’s like D&D, only with furries, sans a room full of smelly nerds. I should know about that last part, by the way. Every character essentially acts like a human, they’re just.. not. They’re whatever animal the person wants them to be, whether it be a gopher, fox, bear, lion.. you get the point. Furries usually don’t speak in costume for several reasons. One, some want to conceal their identity. Two, animals don’t speak, and three, you wouldn’t be able to hear them anyway.
To get to the sexual part, some furries take their roleplaying a few steps further. I’d like to point out that not all people that play text-based roleplaying games are furverts, or people that sexualize furrydom. According to Wikipedia, only about one third have a sexual interest in furrydom. To warn non-furverts of sexual activity in the online community, the term “yiff” is used.
Some furries are only sexually attracted to anthropomorphic animals, but they don’t necessarily go around dressed up in costumes. Just to quash unsubstantiated claims that all furries are into beastiality, a study by David Rust showed that about 2% of furries were interested in sex with an animal. As a side note, I also think it’s important to mention plushophilia here. I want to write a separate Fetish Friday about this, but plushophiliacs are really into stuffed animals. They sometimes get lumped in with furries, and that’s not really correct. More on this later.
So how do furverts get off? I think that’s the big question. Some express affection (and not necessarily sexual affection) by scritching, or lightly scratching another furry between the ears with their fingernails (or claws, if they’re wearing their fursuit). Some fursuits are specially made for sex, with elaborate features meant to make sex easier. Other furries just cut holes where they need them.
There are lots of furry conventions held around the world, but the largest one in the world is held annually in Pittsburgh. So, if you want to see furries in action, you should check out Anthrocon.
I’m throwing this next part in here just because I’m a huge Brewers fan and I think it’s hilarious.
Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Jim Powell was sharing a hotel with Anthrocon 2007 attendees a day before the convention and reported a negative opinion of the furries.
Thanks to the awesome person that sent me a link to Jim Powell & Bob Uecker talking about the furries at their hotel.
It’s incredibly vague (without listening to the broadcast), but the fact that they mentioned my second favorite Brewers announcer made it worth mentioning.
If anyone has anything they’d like to add to this, please email me at email@example.com!

I’m going to preface this by saying that I have (and always have had) a rape fetish. I enjoy it when my partner sneaks up on me, gags me, and forces me onto the bed. I love being choked, gagged, spanked, called names, and tied down with no chance of escape. It’s just who I am. Obviously, this is not for everyone. I love the rush I get when I’m surprised like this, so I guess it’s like a high for me.
Rape is a hot button topic right now, and I respect that. Like any sane, compassionate, and decent human being, I’m against any non-consensual sex act. Nobody should be forced to do anything if they aren’t 100% willing and able to give consent. I’m not trying to defend rape, I am only trying to illustrate that it is possible to be very anti-rape but still enjoy play rape as a sexual fetish. Now that I’ve cleared that up…
It is relatively normal to be turned on by things that may frighten you or your partner. These turn-ons can cause a person to feel like a monster. They may cause insecurity, feelings of guilt, and especially, shame. As long as you know and respect the meaning of consent, it doesn’t make you a bad person. More than likely, your urges are normal, especially if you’re conscientious enough to be worried that you’re a monster for having these urges. There are a few times when it is important to seek therapy. If you’re afraid that you can’t control your urges, whether it be unconsenting violence, pedophilia, or another harmful act, it is admirable and honorable, not shameful, to be strong enough to seek therapy.
Real rape (not the fun kinkster kind) is a horrifying, traumatic event. It’s human nature to be drawn to traumatic events, and I would argue that it’s normal to sexualize these events. Call me Freudian, but I think that many fetishes are deeply rooted in childhood and adolescent experiences. I’m going to use myself as an example. I am a victim of rape. It wasn’t a brutal rape. It was a boyfriend/girlfriend kind of rape – the kind where I didn’t really say no, but my body language clearly indicated that I did not want to have sex, if that makes any sense. I do believe that my rape fetish existed before this incident (I think I was 14 at the time, and yes, my previous sexual encounters with the person were consensual), but maybe this cemented it. I’m not sure. I think it has more to do with the fact that I’ve always been relatively submissive and eager to please. Regardless, I’ve known several people that have similar urges that have no history of rape, abuse, or anything even remotely similar. This is normal. As long as you don’t go lurking in dark alleys waiting for women to leave the bar so you can take advantage of them, and you are open and honest in your relationships and your partner is on board with your fetish, and you’ve established a safe word, go crazy! Have fun with it. Go out and buy a blindfold, some bondage tape, whatever. Don’t ever force, emotionally blackmail, or guilt someone into doing what you want them do to (this extends beyond sex) and I think it’s fair game.
For some people (like myself), sex plays a major role in their lifestyle and personality. I do think the importance of sex and sexual compatibility is whitewashed over in our culture. If you’re dating a person that has zero interest in an important aspect of your personality, especially sex, and since most sexual fetishes require consent, I think it’s very important to re-evaluate the relationship. Sometimes, breaking up is the solution. Other times, it could be consenting to an open relationship. Overall, if something is extremely important to you, especially something as huge as sex, it’s worth it to surround yourself with like-minded people. The less you accept parts of yourself, the more likely you are to bottle up your desires and feelings. Everyone knows that rarely ends well. If you’re looking for a place to start, try FetLife. It’s like Facebook for us kinky people.
Want to explore non-vanilla sex? Stick to these rules until you’ve established boundaries with your partner(s):
1. Always use a safeword.
Choose a word that wouldn’t come up in the scenario. In rape play especially, saying “stop” is part of the fun. Need ideas? Use the word green for “everything’s okay – go harder/faster/etc”, yellow for “slow down, I’m nearing my limit”, and red for “stop right now!”.
2. Be open and honest about what you want.
Tell your partner about your desires. Don’t go into great detail if you feel it may shock them, but try to explain what you want and why you think you want it. If you and your partner have a relatively vanilla sex life, it’s best to ease into less vanilla sex. For instance, instead of bringing out the leather cuffs and nipple clamps, ask them if they would allow you to use bondage tape to bind their wrists. You can find bondage tape on Amazon – it’s basically duct tape, but it only sticks to itself. Step things up gradually from here.
3. Read your partner’s body language and listen to the tone of their voice and words they choose.
This is important for not taking advantage of your partner. If you get the feeling that they aren’t into sex that night, or they don’t want to give you that post-dessert blowjob, don’t pressure them. It’s okay to say “I’d really like it if we could ______ tonight.” Just don’t say it in a douchy way that makes them feel like your personal fuck toy. Unless they’re into that.
4. Make sure your partner trusts you.
Especially if you’re tying them up or doing any sort of roleplay that may affect their emotional well-being. Make sure you’re tending to your partner’s aftercare needs.
