There are a number of different things that can float one’s boat. We may not always find it arousing ourselves, but as long as it’s Safe, secure, and consensual, hey… you do you!
We present the neck fetish. A seemingly innocent part of the body that can really get one’s motor running…
A neckfetish is a sexually motivated or interested person in the neck. It’s usually someone else’s neck, and often it is the female neck that is most desired.
You may now be wondering: “Well, wait… I really like necks… kissing, licking, and caressing. Do I have a neck fetish?” Let’s dive into what a fetish actually is, shall we?
What is a sexual fetish?
A Sexual fetish is when one becomes sexually excited in response to an object or body part that’s not normally sexualised, such as shoes, feet…or the neck. People with a sexual obsession need to have their favorite fetish to be happy. aroused Reach the peak.
One may, for example, hold, smell, rub or taste an object or body piece, or ask their companion to wear or use the object. Masturbating.
Any object can be considered a “fetish”, making it difficult to create a list. The following are the most popular fetishes: feet, and certain body features such as weight, obesity, tattoos and hair.
There’s also a big inclination for some to fetishise items of clothing like stockings, skirts, or shoes, as well as items of a particular material. Rubber, leather, and other materials. LatexFor example,
A fetish isn’t categorised as a disorder, and can simply be an utterly arousing way in which to get closer to oneself and their partner. If a fetish causes severe and persistent distress, it may be considered a disorder.
According to Richard Krueger, MDColumbia University’s clinical professor of psychiatry:
“Whether somebody is doing this by themselves or with a partner, if they’re happy with it, then it’s not an issue. When it’s a disorder, it feels out of control. Someone might disappear from work or home to practice their fetish in secret.”
Kenneth Rosenberg, MDWeill Cornell Medical College Psychiatry Professor, David Sullivan, has also spoken out on the subject and said:
“As long as everyone agrees, then chances are, no one is getting hurt in a way that is extreme or permanent, and everyone’s happy with what’s happening.”
One example of a fetish as a disorder is one that he used. “You can sleep in the other room, just leave me your shoes.”
Alas, we digress from the topic… neck fetishes.
Why does some Fetishise the Neck
It’s true that the neck is a vulnerable part of the body that’s Very sensitiveThis makes it delicate and sensual. People, mostly women, often decorate their necks with various types of jewellery or scarves. Some even cover their necks with long hair.
These are all things that can cause one to become enthused about uncovering (or even undressing!) the naked neck. Similar to how we eroticize our intimate parts by hiding them behind clothes, the same principle applies to the neck.
Other reasons why the neck may be the object of one’s affection is that they like to examine the skin, blue veins, and the muscles that pop or move as the head turns.
The curves, softness, and scent of one’s neck too plays a role in this fetish. With that, some who have a neck fetish may bite or suck their lover’s neck to give them love bites as proof of their adoration.
The Neck is an Erogenous Zone
Perhaps you haven’t got a neck fetish, nor do you know anyone who does, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that the neck is a well-known erogenous zone.
Nerve endings are abundant in the nape of your neck. This means that even the smallest touch, licks, and movements can trigger nerve endings. Kisses can give you goosebumps and increase your level of arousal.
With this, it’s not all that hard to see why some have a neck fetish. One may enjoy teasing their partner by touching their neck with their fingertips, kissing and biting their neck, or engaging (lightly) in choking while having sex.
The Link Between a Shaved Head & Neck Fetish
Earlier mentioned, covering one’s neck with long hair and having it appear to be ‘naked’ once removed can be a huge turn on for those who have a neck fetish. Both men and women can find a lot of attraction to shaved heads, showing off their neck, which is often more tanned than the scalp. The change in skin color can have erotic connotations.
One artist Maghina, created a series of photographs that placed emphasis on the neck by manipulating their model’s (or lover’s) hairstyle.
The images do not show the model’s face, only (eventually) the back of the neck, allowing us to see how their hairstyle changes over the course of the photoshoot.
This tells us that the hair was not trimmed at a salon during the shoot. Trust It is intimate and a sign of intimacy. This series also shows a completely exposed neck with the hair shaved.
The objective of Maghina’s work is not made clear, but it does show the physical intimacy involved with being so close to another’s neck… the kind of intimacy that usually only takes place during Sleep or sexual activity.
With that, it’s clear that there are many reasons why a neck fetish may be entirely erotic. And because we’re such wonderfully diverse humans, it’s almost quite romantic to realise just how beautiful the neck really is, wouldn’t you agree?
