Today's lesson: VORAREPHILIA - Vore Fetish


Vorarephilia (often shortened to vore) is a sexual fetish and paraphilia where arousal occurs from the idea of being eaten, eating another, observing this process, or by the general process of eating. The fantasy most frequently involves the victim being swallowed alive, and may or may not include digestion. Since the fetish is difficult, illegal, or many cases physically impossible to achieve in real life, it is more commonly enjoyed through pictures, stories, videos, and video games. It may be seen as a variation on macrophilia (fascination with or a sexual fantasy involving giants/giantesses) in some cases, and may also be combined with other fetishes.

The word vorarephilia is derived from the Latin vorare (to "swallow" or "devour"), which is cognate to Greek βορά (vorá, "food"), and Ancient Greek φιλία (philía, "love").

Motivations behind the vore fetish vary, but endosomatophilia (attraction to fantasies involving complete encapsulation of a living thing within the body of another living thing) and dominance/submission play are two common driving forces. Allowing oneself to be devoured represents an ultimate act of submission on the prey's part, and the ultimate act of dominance by a predator.
