Paraphilias are experiences of intense sexual arousal to atypical objects, situations, or individuals. [3] An internet paraphillia is any paraphilia (fetish) that originates from, or is spread largely in part by the internet community. Because many fetishes are either dangerous and/or impossible to enact in real life, fantasies are satisfied via drawings, games, erotica, videos, and online role-play.


It isn't clear when the first of such fetishes started appearing on the internet. It can be assumed that with the internet furry/porn community developing in the early/mid 1990's with Usenet groups, interest for paraphillia art grew. By 1997, the TF-based site Transfur was established, and in September of 1999, the cartoon paraphillia archive site Shadowlord Inc. was created.

With the creation of deviantART in 2000, the spread of fetish-oriented art accelerated much further. By the mid 2000s, furry paraphillia and fetishes had become very commonplace on the newly-emerged FurAffinity, as well as deviantART a few years prior.

4chan's /d/ board also contains a lot of such paraphilia, but in a more pornographic and explicit nature.

Internet paraphilias might've stemmed from more common fetishes/paraphilia (i.e. BDSM, S&M, latex, masochism, and to some extent even pedophilia, necrophilia, zoophilia, etc.) then over time developed to fit to a certain group's sexual tastes and likings. For example, the vore or micro/macro fetish has roots in masochism and submission, the muscle fetish has roots in homosexuality, while diapers/"messy" might've come from coprophilia and pedophilia.

In extreme cases, some paraphilias have been known to be very explicit. Hardcore pornography, coprophilia, gore, and any forms of torture/death are known to have its patrons. FurAffinity has some examples, but 4chan's /hc/ and /d/ boards have better examples.


Like what "Origins" says, it's difficult to determine how fast the spread of the Internet Paraphilia is, and when the peak of it's spread was. Paraphillia sites began to spread in the late 1990's, and a simple search in popular fetish sites like deviantART and FurAffinity using generic topics like Pokémon or any anthro creature will often yield such results as early as 2002. In 4chan, these kinds of fetishes are often ridiculed, like many Encyclopedia Dramatica articles created as early as 2005. Paraphillias have even spread to social media sites, like Tumblr and Twitter.



The inflation paraphilia evokes the phenomenon of expansion in a subject through the use of gas, water, or other viscous fluids.

Generally, inflation works appeals to the inflatophile crowd (a group of people that find interaction with inflatable objects pleasing, which may or may not be sexual) by showing the subject expanded with some type of gas, liquid or gel. A common part of inflation is popping, when the subject ruptures due to outside influence (such as a pin), and bursting, when the subject catastrophically fails due to being inflated to its limits. Often times at the end of popping or bursting, the creator will have the subject reform in some way.

Inflation is normally defined by two things, one of which being the part of the subject that is being inflated. Popular inflation areas include bust, belly, rear, and full body. Another way inflation is defined is by what the subject is being inflated with. Popular inflation means include pressurized air, helium, water, gel, and sentient goo. Inflation bears several similarities to other genres that invoke expansion, as a result, many creators of inflation works often make other works in similar genres. Common crosses with inflation include Fat (extreme weight gain, fat inflation), Hyper (normally the breasts or genatalia), and Macro.


Transformation (sometimes abbreviated as "TF") is a fetish that involves a character, usually human, transforming into another person, an inanimate object, an animal, or fantasy creature.


Vorarephilia, more commonly known as Vore, is a paraphilia characterized by the erotic desire to consume or be consumed by another person or creature or to spectate another person or creature be eaten. Vore may or may not involve bloodshed and is not restricted to oral consumption.

Macrophilia and Microphilia (Height Fetishism)

Macrophilia and Microphilia (abbreviated as macro/micro) are two very closely related paraphilias involving extreme height differences. Technically, macrophilia refers to a fascination with tall characters while microphilia refers to an attraction to very short characters, though it is very common for macrophilia to be used to refer to size height fetishism altogether while microphilia is a comparatively rarely used term. Height fetishism commonly overlaps with other fetishes such as crush, vore and many others.

Fat/Food Play/Weight Gain

Fat paraphilia works feature characters with a noticeable amount of fat on them. This can range from noticeably pudgy, to excessively blobby. Fat works in this sense tend to focus on the features of the subject, like the size of their anatomy or how soft they feel. These can also include characters playing with, snuggling, or appreciating one's bulk.
A rather common type of fat work includes weight gain, or WG (bottom right). These works usually show the subject gaining weight over time, through various "causes", forcefully or not (usually as part of a series of pictures), or actively eating/inflating with weight. This paraphillia is often paired with inflation, and/or transformation (often called TFWG).

Pregnancy/Male Pregnancy

Pregnancy and Male Pregnancy (often shortened to MPreg) works feature subjects in some kind of pregnant state. They also include works that deal with the ideas of conception, gestation, and birth.

These works can be considered sexual in the sense that they tend to showcase the closeness the subject has with the unborn young, or focus on the growth and change of the pregnant subject. But since pregnancy works can also deal with the idea of growth and expansion, they also mix with a few other genres such as fat, hyper, and unbirthing. If the subject is female, often times their features are over-exaggerated, unbirthing is sometimes used as a catalyst for the situation, and often times, the subject is show as impossibly overburdened with children.


The Tickle fetish involves an erotic fascination of tickling others, or being tickled oneself. Tickle fetishism is popularly paired with bondage (shown below).


The Watersport fetish focuses on the expulsion of bodily fluids from or onto the subject.


Diaper or infantilism art normally depicts a character in diapers or baby clothes, but can pander to different audiences in the AB/DL community depending on the context.

Work appealing to the Adult Baby (AB) crowd focuses on general age regression, either physically or mentally. Normally, work in this genre has the subject role playing as a toddler, with the subject being treated as such or interacting with set pieces that pertain to the subject matter (such as diapers, cribs, rattles, baby clothes, etc.). Alternatively, the subject can also be playing the role of a "caregiver", usually to other toddlers or AB characters. While the subject can be of any age (although most older subjects never seem to be over their early 40's), most artists simply depict their character as a toddler. Overall, AB works are considered non-sexual, in the sense that there isn't a sexual attraction to the set pieces or subject in question. Some common sub genres include: Mental regression, age regression, soiling (when done to regress the character), feeding, sissy (feminized and docile or submissive leaning regression), and ageplay (role playing done in the sexual sense).

Diaper Lover (DL) work tends to be closely associated with AB pieces but differs in some key areas. DL work differs from AB work in the sense that DL work focuses on the diaper as a sexual object, as opposed to AB work which uses diapers as a set piece for the regression of the character. In that sense, DL work has more similarities to underwear fetishes and some forms of crossdressing that focus on the objects themselves as sexual instead of using them as set pieces for some overarching scenario. Some common sub genres include: soiling (when crossed with slob work), and AB cross (AB work done with a DL focus).


Classified as a "hardcore" fetish, Gore is a fetish which involves extreme physical injury and graphic violence or even death (snuff). This fetish is quite rare and is restricted to a limited amount of patrons.


Crush is a fetish involving the crushing of people, animals, and inanimate objects, often via trampling or with other body parts. Although there are no known laws outlawing video depicting the crushing of live invertebrates and objects, fetish videos featuring live vertebrates have been illegal in the United States since 1999 and other countries have made similar bans [1]. The Hangzhou Kitten Killer is a particularly infamous instance of the fetish.


Scat is a fetish directly derived from coprophilia, which is sexual attraction to fecal matter and/or the act of defecation. Either by being covered with it; or eating it. It is categorized as a "hardcore" fetish, due to it's extremely ideologically sensitive nature. One of the most notorious examples of Scat is the viral shock video 2 Girls 1 Cup.

Fetish Websites and Roleplaying Communities


F-List is a website in which members can register multiple characters to a Profile listing the fetishes of each for the purpose of role-play. Each character's "Kinks" are divided into "Fave", "Yes", "Maybe", and "No" categories that describe which fetishes the character likes and doesn't like. [2]


e621 is a mature, furry image booru containing many pornographic images including extremely graphic paraphilias. The website has been closed down three times due to accusations of child pornography but has come back online each time. e621 has over sixty-thousand registered users.

Eka's Portal

Eka's Portal is a website dedicated to vore in which users can submit art and literature related to vore as well as browse forums and participate in role-play. The website was created in 2005 when the founders, Eka and Strega, decided to merge their respective sites, and

SizeCon 2016

SizeCon 2016 is the world first ever con for size lovers of macro / micro along with transformation, growth, expansion and inflation. It was first announced by Lucia of Max Growth Productions on Nov 19th, 2015 where Lucia uploaded a video of her talking about the announcement of SizeCon 2016. The website for SizeCon 2016 is later announced and first posted from the official SizeCon 2016 poster on InflateChan's Live board. A SizeCon 2016 Kickstarter page is posted on November 30th, 2015, hoping to reach $15K by New Year's Day 2016.
