    Apotemnophilia: arousal to oneself as an amputee

    Climacophila: arousal to falling down stairs

    Coprophilia: arousal to feces

    Formicophilia: arousal to insects

    Nasolingus: arousal to sucking on a person's nose

    Nebulophobia: arousal to fog

    Objectophilia: arousal to a particular inanimate object

    ​Psychrophilia: arousal to being cold and watching others who are cold

    Sadism: arousal to causing physical and psychological pain

    Transvestic Fetishism: arousal to female garments touching the male's skin

    Xylophilia: arousal to wood (not the slang "wood," btw)

    "But I’ve written objectively, in terms of the science, about zoophilia. I’ve said multiple times that it’s a difficult subject for me to talk about because I’m an animal lover – not in that sense [laughs] – but I’m very concerned about animals and animal abuse. However, the real issue is looking at the individual cases and being able to really identify where harm occurs. If an animal mounts you, the question of consent is not that the human is raping an animal. Because I take this amoral approach to these types of questions, members of many groups see me as an ally. They follow me on Twitter. They’ve begun tagging on a Z to LGBT to make LGBTZ."
