Trichophilia, commonly known as hair fetish, is a sexual attraction to human hair.
This attraction can manifest itself in various ways, from a fascination with the texture, length and color of hair to specific actions such as hair pulling or cutting/removal.
It can be any type of human hair – from head hair, which is the most common focus, to chest, armpit and pubic hair.
Although the exact number of people with trichophilia is unknown, it is not an uncommon fetish and can be developed by both men and women.
As with many sexual preferences, it is important to remember that trichophilia itself is harmless as long as it does not harm others and the actions are consensual.
