A is for Actirasty

Who's enjoying the sunny weather? Who's enjoying the sunny weather a little too much...?

Actirasty is the word for sexual arousal from the sun's rays.

Actirasty could refer to simply fantasising about the sun and engaging in sex acts in the sun.  Or it could be apparent in behaviours of seeking sun exposure, nude sunbathing, sex on the beach... and so on. For this reason actirasty is associated with exhibitionism, as in a quest to derive sexual pleasure from the sun, individuals will often find themselves in public.  However, the underlying motive is not that of exhibitionistic desire, it's simply that the outdoors is the best way to get exposure to the sun.

Anyone who enjoys actirasty should remember to stay hydrated, use sunblock, and consider living somewhere with a private roof terrace.

O is for Ombrophilia/ P is for Pluviophilia

Another double dose of weather related paraphilias for you today.

Ombrophilia is sexual arousal from rain.

Pluviophilia is sexual arousal from being rained upon.

This "Is it normal to have a rain fetish?" submission on Is It Normal is an example of Ombrophilia rather than Pluviophilia, as the writer specifically makes the distinction of being aroused by the fact that it's raining, and not being aroused by being rained upon:

"I wouldn't really know if this is considered a fetish or not, but rain really turns me on. The cloudy weather or late night rain makes me really horny. I can be in my room all alone and bored and just the fact that it's raining really excites me. It's not to go outside and have sex while rain is pouring on you, it's to have sex while it rains. This thought is really sexy to me, and I really want to try it. I've been told this is a fetish, but I don't see it that way. Do you think it's a 'rain fetish'? Does anybody else feel this way?"

Next in the series of weather related paraphilias:

Keranuophilia:

Sexual arousal from thunder and lightning.

Please note keranuophilia is distinct from

Brontophilia:

Sexual arousal from thunderstorms.

I don't know how, but it is.  A perfect example of the importance of specificity in paraphilia taxonomy.

N is for Nebulophilia

Nebulophilia is the name given to the paraphilia characterised by sexual arousal to fog.

Weather conditions have been found to affect mood state and sexual behaviour.  In the book Forensic and Medico-legal Aspects of Sexual Crimes and Unusual Sexual Practices, Dr. Aggrawal states:

“like allergies, sexual arousal may occur from anything under the sun, including the sun”

So there are actually a number of weather related paraphilias and fetishes. Get ready to learn about them ALL this week.
