Scat Kink: All About Poop Fetish and Scat Play

Coprophilia, or scat fetish, is a kink that dares not speak its name if there ever was one.

What is a Scat Fetish?

A Scat fetish is sexual arousal to feces. For folks with a scat kink, the smell, taste, and texture of shit can be pleasurable and part of their sexual play.

Skat kink comes up from time to time, but it’s usually on people’s no-go fetish list, along with necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality. Even the most tolerant, inclusive, extremist kink communities can find poop play taboo.

Most of what we know about scat play is anecdotal because very few scientific studies have taken place. We don’t really know how common the scat kink is because so few will confess to it!

Scat Play Studies

The few studies we have focus on small groups of kinky men. A Finnish study found that almost one in five guys who engaged in sadomasochism enjoyed scat play, whether they were gay or straight.

Another small study found that almost half of kinky guys who were sexually attracted to animals were far more likely to be aroused by feces than BDSM guys who did not have zoophilia, about one in twelve.

While it is tempting to conclude a connection—animals have far fewer poo taboos, after all, than socialized humans—the fact that we have no idea how the rest of the population responds to scat means we don’t know much at all. Even assuming it is rare could be wrong.

Who would admit that poo turns them on? We don’t know what goes on behind closed bathroom doors. Nor is it strictly a male phenomenon—Vice Magazine did a story on female scat fetishists.

What We Do Know About Scat Kink

For some men and women with a scat fetish, the thrill is visual.

Not all scat fetishists want a hands-on experience. It is often voyeuristic. Watching someone defecate can be very arousing.

The anus is a sexual organ, after all, and just as we adore gazing on penises and vaginas, watching the butthole stretch, expand, and serve its purpose is arousing for some. It is often what shit lovers describe when trying to explain their scat kink.

For a few, the poop taboo is a powerful aphrodisiac.

Sexual excitement is profoundly linked to taboo. Why does your brother’s wife make your dick so hard that you can’t take it, but once you’ve gone there, it loses luster? What is hidden and forbidden can be incredibly exciting.

For some scat players, humiliation is key.

Not every scat lover gets off on sadomasochism or humiliation, but for some, the kink is rooted in BDSM play. The ultimate act of submission is to receive a steaming load from your dominant.

For some with a scat fetish, the shit itself is most important.

Some poo enthusiasts desire the dump itself more than the ceremony surrounding it. They enjoy the smell, texture, and taste and want to rub it all over themselves. Some are shit eaters, aroused by consuming the stuff. Some with a scat fetish collect it.

Oral-fecal contact is dangerous, and so is genital-fecal contact.

As dirty and taboo as scat fetish might feel, most scat play is pretty safe. Nothing bad will happen to either partner if you are watching someone take a crap or keeping some in a cup.

However, oral contact is extremely dangerous. Waste is, after all, filled with toxins, parasites, bacteria, and pathogens. Diarrhea, polio, cholera, hepatitis, and typhoid are just a few terrible illnesses that can result.

Getting those bacteria into your urethra, or hers, will just about guarantee a bladder infection or worse.

Make sure you don’t have open cuts or scratches or torn cuticles if handling the stuff.
