Hand fetishism


Hand fetishism

Hand fetishism[1] or hand partialism is the sexual fetish for hands. This may include the sexual attraction to a specific area such as the fingers, palm or nails, or the attraction to a specific action performed by the hands; which may otherwise be considered non-sexual—such as washing or drying dishes. This fetish may manifest itself as a desire to experience physical interaction, or as a source of sexual fantasy.

Hand fetish may also include the hand as a whole, not only the finger and nails. It may involve smooth skin, smooth elbow skin and arm movements. Particularly the shape of a nice feminine hand can sometimes erupt sexual desire. Strangely when such an arm is folded the pumping up of the muscles besides the tip of the elbow can also erupt sexual desire as seen in some cases, though rare. Also the sound of the several bangles when the arm is in action may attract sexual desire as found.
