Crush Fetish: All About Crushing Kinks

Woman's Feet in Fishnet Stockings

Some people have a kink for crushing. That is, they are sexually aroused by watching others—usually women, but sometimes dudes—crushing objects and sometimes animals or insects.

What the crush??!?!?

What Is a Crush Fetish?

The crush kink or fetish is pretty much what it sounds like—crushing for sexual arousal and pleasure.

Most crush kinksters derive sexual excitement from fantasizing about crushing, or watching someone crush something, and some want to be crushed themselves, although this is usually considered to be a trampling kink— related but different.

Like most kinks, there is a fascinating array of excitement triggers within a seemingly small subject.

Take pantyhose fetish, for example: it seems simple—people turned on by pantyhose. Many can be turned on in general by women wearing pantyhose. For others, it is specific women wearing pantyhose—really leggy, ebony women, or chubby blondes, perhaps.

And from there, it gets into the really nitty gritty! For some, it is specific kinds of pantyhose—the texture of a particular brand, even. For some, it is just the feet inside pantyhose but not the butt or calves.

In the same way, for many crush kinksters, the person doing the crushing should appear a certain way. Often as a dominant woman or dominatrix.

For others, it’s more important what is being crushed: cigarettes, food, bugs, people.

Some have very specific preferences for what kind of body part is doing the crushing. The foot is sometimes the most important part of a crush fetish, or certain kinds of shoes (stilettos are popular, but many prefer worn-out sneakers or bare feet or big feet.)

Extremely common to the crush fetish is that insects are what is being crushed. To some kinky crushers, only specific varieties of insects are exciting!

Some are happy with any kind of crushing—sitting, standing, stepping, smothering. For others, it is specific—the heel of the hand, for example, or only foot crushing.

Soft Crush Fetish

The related kinks and fetishes range, and range within themselves, along with crushing, from hard to soft.

Most crush fetishists are “soft”—meaning they enjoy fantasies or actual crushing, but it is harmless. For example, watching a woman crush a banana, or sit on your lap. Crushing insects is usually considered soft as well.

Hard Crush Fetish

Hard crush fetishism would be crushing small mammals (or large animals) to death, or being crushed to the point of actual suffocation or injury.

The hard crush kink can be consensual, but if it involves animals, it is illegal and disgusting. Animals cannot give consent to injury or death, so hardcore crushing porn and performances have garnered legal action and attention from animal advocacy groups, resulting in criminal punishment.

7 Variations of Crush Fetish

Crushing fetish is a distinct kink, but like most kinks, it is related to many others. Here are different types of crush fetish and crossover kinks.

1. Trampling

The trampling fetish is closely related to crushing in many aspects. If the crush kinkster is only or mostly turned on by humans crushing humans, or by being crushed or crushing another human, but not by other crushes, that is usually “trampling.”

Even macrophilia comes into play when the trample kink involves being crushed by a giant woman!

Trampling is watching someone trample on another, being trampled on, or doing the trampling—some are excited by any combination of these, and some are specific as to which of the three is the turn on.

2. CBT

Some crush kinks fall under CBT – cock and ball torture. When the arousal comes from forms of CBT play, especially those involving a domme’s feet, we consider this a ball crushing fetish.

3. Sploshing

Sploshing can involve throwing cakes or food in faces or smearing them all over the body, but there are lots of folks who only find wet and messy food experiences arousing if the cake or pie is being crushed or stepped on!

Some crush kinksters are only turned on by the crushing of foods like cakes or fruits and not by crushing other things—but they are not turned on by the food in a different kink, such as feeding or general wet and messy.

4. Cake Sitting

Cake sitting is a very specific form of crushing, and is likely popular if you have a ‘butt crush fetish’. If you love to bake or have a sweet tooth, this performative kink might be something new to try with your lover.

5. Foot Fetish

Foot fetish is an extremely common crossover with crushing. While the feet may be mere tools with which the crushing takes place, for a lot of crush fetishists, the foot is also a fetish and is very important to the crush fantasy. Some have very particular preferences about foot size and footwear.

Actually, some foot fetish sites are a a good starting point to meet people for crush fetish play.

6. Formicophilia

There are many people who are turned on by insects—sometimes specific insects, and sometimes by the sensation or tactile qualities. For example, the squishy feeling of squirming larvae, or the scurrying of ant armies. Some find the killing of insets exciting and may have a bug crushing fetish.

My friend once met up with a guy she met on Craigslist who unbeknownst to her got off on lighting insects on fire as a kind of foreplay. She only met him the once, as she found it too disturbing. He probably should have waited for the second or third date to unpack his kink!

7. BDSM

Sadomasochism, bondage, cock worship, goddess worship, and many other aspects of BDSM are often part of crush fetishism.

This is not always true. Lots of folks are merely aroused by the idea of an attractive woman crushing out cigarette butts or stepping on cardboard. But those who like to be trampled on, crushed by a shoe spike, or watch her snuff out insects are usually involved in other areas of BDSM.
