Is There Such Thing As A Pooping In Public Fetish?

Dear Sexpert,

Q: I recently read about people who “purposely” poop in their pants in public. Is there such a thing? Is there a sexual component to it?

A: Yes, there is actually a “purposely pooping in public” fetish. Like most fetishes, or “philias” (Latin for “extreme or abnormal fondness or sexual interest in”), they develop in childhood or adolescence. An event that induces fear, emotion, or excitement, often creates sexual excitement later, as the person tries to “re-live” the event at a later time.

You probably read about the serial “poo jogger” in Australia, who defecated over 30 times on the neighbor’s property in the suburbs of Brisbane. When neighbors couldn’t take anymore crap, they set up a sting, and caught the 64-year-old corporate executive in the act.

The fetish is so bizarre, that not many people have addressed the psychology behind why people pick this fetish. According to the New York Post in a story called “Doctors try to explain why people keep pooping in public”, Sandy Rea, an Australian psychologist told  that “It may be to serve a sexual fantasy. There is paraphiliac disorder, which is characterized by sexual fantasies and sexual gratification. Somewhere along the line, there’s been a wrong association between sexual fantasy and defecating in public. They get a thrill. They get an arousal, but underlying that gratification is anger and a thought disorder. It is a big fuck you, and is where the thought and anger of the disorder comes,” she said. “The repeat behavior, and never getting caught, reinstates the “I’ll do what I want to do’ mentality.”

A 23-year-old English girl on Reddit explains the origin of her “purposely pooping in public” fetish:

“I’ll try and explain the origin of this strange fetish. I witnessed someone have an accident in class. It was a boy, and I was 13. He complained that he wasn’t feeling well, but he wasn’t allowed to go to the toilet. I watched him squirm, sweat and panic for a whole 30 minutes before he noisily filled his pants. From then on, my interest was piqued. Fast forward 2 years later, to the incident that really cemented the fetish for me. One of my friends told me she really needed the toilet as we walked to school. She walked holding her stomach and contorting her face, and as we were waiting to cross the road, and said it’s coming out. So maybe it was that moment that the fetish was born, and I always seek to replicate that moment, that panic my friend felt.”

You can’t make this shit up.
