About

Macrophila and Microphila (often shortened to Macro/Micro) are paraphilias involving an interest in people and/or creatures that are either of a much larger (macro) or smaller (micro) size than normal. The relative difference in height between characters in Macro/Micro can range from several inches to hundreds of miles in the most extreme cases. The fetish is most commonly associated with giantesses; giant women, though content featuring male giants also exists. Given the versatility of the macrophilia, there can be found a significant amount of overlap with other fetishes such as foot fetish, crush fetish, vore, voyeurism, and others, though not all size difference content is inherently sexual.

Origin

Characters of unnatural size have appeared repeatedly in fiction, such as the tiny Lilliputians and giant Brobdingnagians in the 18th century novel, Gulliver's Travels and the giantess from Attack of the 50 Foot Woman in 1958. The first website dedicated to macrophilia, Macrophile.com, was founded by "Bennie" in 1997. Macrophile writer "Rogue" is attributed for first coining the term "macrophilia".[1][2][3]
