A word a month – Tafephilia


From the dictionary of unusual sex:

Tafephilia – The search for sexual pleasure by attending funerals or by being buried alive – hopefully only temporarily. The tragic part is that no, I didn’t make it up: to deserve its own word, this practice must evidently be more widespread than we can imagine.

This was one of the over 1.500 entries from Ayzad’s book XXX – Il dizionario del sesso insolito, which unfortunately is not available in English yet. If you can read Italian, you can buy it here.
