Encyclopedia > Pregnancy fetishism

Pregnancy fetishism, also known as maiesiophilia, is a sexual fetish for women who are or appear pregnant. Amongst those who have the fetish there are many subtle distinctions and sub-fetishes, so not all are the same. In some cases it coincides with an affectation for lactation, and can be connected to inflation fetishism. It is not, however, at all connected to paedophilia (despite the apparently-common assumption).[citation needed] Impregnation fetish is another related paraphilia. The basic idea of sexual fetishism is sexual arousal and satisfaction through an inanimate object, the fetish. ... Image of a woman on the Pioneer plaque sent to outer space. ... A pregnant woman Pregnancy is the process by which a mammalian female carries a live offspring from conception until it develops to the point where the offspring is capable of living outside the womb. ... Erotic lactation means breastfeeding of an adult partner or re-lactation for primarily erotic or sensual reasons. ... Pedophilia (American English), pædophilia/paedophilia (Commonwealth English), or pedosexuality is the paraphilia of being sexually attracted primarily or exclusively to prepubescent children. ... An impregnation fetish is a paraphilia characterized by arousal or gratification from the thought of impregnation. ...

The main attraction for many pregnancy fetishists is the curve of the belly leading into the pubic area. For some the bigger the belly becomes the more aroused they feel. The breasts also increase in size causing a sub class of pregnancy fetishism that leads to breast expansion. Many people who have this fetish have a limit to how large the belly or breasts can become before they are no longer arroused. Some are more aroused by the breasts and belly increasing far beyond natural limitations. This is when a prenancy fetish can become an inflation fetish. Others are aroused by the thought of impregnation and the inevitable pregnancy. This has more to do with potency than the actual pregnancy fetish.

Many woman as well as men share this fetish. Some women feel sexier, and more desirable while pregnant. Towards this end there are lingerie lines made exclusively for pregnant women as well as special sexual poses that are low impact. Some women might even orgasm longer while pregnant. This can be from an increase in pressure on the g-plate or even on the cervix.

It should also be noted that many couples have sex while pregnant, even if neither partner has a pregnancy fetish. It is also worth noting that finding features of pregnancy attractive, including both those not normally found attractive in Western culture (the increased belly-size) and those that are (many pregnant women find that the condition of their hair and skin is better than normal) is not the same as having a fetish for them. However because of cultural taboos about sexual acts during pregnancy people, including those who find pregnant women attractive, may perceive this level of attraction as fetishistic. It is therefore worth distinguishing between pregnancy eroticism and pregnancy fetishism.

Britney Spears pregnant nude statue controversy

A front view of the controversial sculpture

In 2006, artists and activists were stunned to find Britney Spears' face and body was used in a sculpture depicts a woman squatting (arms on floor) on a bear rug, with her buttocks high in the air to signify childbirth (the baby's head and the vulva are visible). The New York-based artist, Daniel Edwards, (who had no permission from Spears) claimed his choice of Spears was to beautify and sexualize pregnancy, but was originally a pro-life political statement. The sculpture depicts Spears in the process of natural birth, although in reality, she opted for caesarean section. Image File history File linksMetadata Spearssculpture. ...

Feminists are divided over whether the work is degrading or patronizing to pregnant women,[citation needed] but some artists and hobbyists consider the statute as unethical and distasteful.[citation needed] Other art critics compared his sculpture to pregnancy fetishism, or with pagan "goddess" statutes as in "earth mothers" or mother goddess (i.e. Demeter or Ishtar) and the Christian Virgin Mary , whom the statues sometimes have a child on their lap or their large bellies depicted earth as a life source.[citation needed] However, if the Virgin Mary was ever depicted in such an erotic way it would most likely raise even more controversy so it might not be appropriate to draw parallels between the art of Theotokos and this statue of Britney Spears. Throughout history there have been other artistic representations of pregnancy. For example the Venus figurines' appearance can be interpreted as depicting heavily pregnant women. Their exaggerated breasts and swollen bellies may not be entirely a result of obesity due to the fact the figures often have seemingly thin arms and upper torso.

Britney Spears was either unaware that her image had been used in the controversial sculpture, or declined to comment. Rumour has it the art sculpture went on sale at a New York auction and some reporters asked Britney Spears if she was comfortable that her face was used or if she had any interest in owning the sculpture. According to this story, Spears refused to answer.
