Description

Messy

This refers to the application of largely opaque substances not usually used in this fashion (such as those listed above). Others prefer the substances to be translucent, such as syrup, Japanese-style lotion, or gunge.

Messy Wrestling in substances such as mud, oil, lotion or gelatine also falls under this category. Mud wrestling involves participants, usually women, wrestling in mud. ...


Again there is a distinction between those who enjoy the sight of messy substances on bare skin, and those who prefer messy clothing.


In addition, some enjoy the experience of getting messy by themselves ("self-WAMing").

Psychology behind WAM

Humiliation

It has generally been agreed [1] that WAM is not generally about humiliation. When humiliation is is a factor it is usually in the form of "dehumanising" the unwilling victim by making them unrecognisable or ruining their clothing.


Sensuality

The physical experience of contact with messy substances or the sight of someone else enjoying or sharing this experience is arguably the most "mainstream" form of WAM fetishism. In contrast to the humiliation form of WAM, this form emphasises the pleasure of the participant(s).


Childhood fantasies

People may wish to act out (or have others act out) childhood fantasies such as messing up smart clothes or participating in food fights.


Recent WAM history

Part of the current awareness of wet and messy fetishism is due to the British fetish magazine Splosh!, which began in 1989. This magazine featured pictures of, and stories about, women in wet and messy situations, although its production has recently slowed. This has led to the word "sploshing" being used as a kind of shorthand, especially in mainstream media, for the fetish. The advent of popular access to the Internet has led to the creation of websites and forums that allow professional WAM producers to showcase their material and for amateurs to exchange photos. A fetish magazine is a magazine devoted to sexual fetishism. ... Splosh! is a British fetish magazine devoted to wet and messy fetishism. ...
