Vampirism or Haematophilia is the fetish for blood.
Menophilia is the fetish for menstruating women.
Blood to me is exciting.
A visual delight.
It has been that way since I was a young girl.
Nose bleeds and the sight of blood was exciting to me.
I would sit in the mirror and watch the red rivulets run down my face.
I began to menstruate and after a period of self loathing and fear of my cycle.
As I began to mature more in my studies as a witch I began to honor, respect and welcome the sacred power of blood. Soon my thoughts revolving menses changed and I began to see it as a powerful magickal conduit and a highly sexual fluid for me.
I began to incorporate blood into my magickal rituals and in my more evolved sexual practices. Blood Fetish or Vampirism is a taboo fetish. Blood is a controversial bodily fluid. Especially in post AIDS america.

Abasiophilia is a psychosexual attraction to people with impaired mobility, especially those who use orthopaedic appliances such as leg braces.
I blame Helmut Newton with his crisp beautiful portraits of Nadja Auermann
in leg braces, a wheel chair and using crutches. When I was a young girl not even a teen I had a preoccupation with high fashion and models and as a result I subscribed to Vogue,Bazaar,W and a host of other high fashion magazines. In an issue of vogue there were Mr. Newton's photographs, I was instantly struck by them. There was something exciting about the juxtaposition
of shiny man made steel and a beautiful nature made woman piqued a curious interest in me. Then I saw Crash by Cronenberg and my interest again piqued unabated, The character that rosanna arquette played wore leg braces. The imagery of a beautiful woman whose legs do not work properly excites me for some reason or another.
Some equate abasiohpilia with body integerity identity disorder(Body Integrity Identity Disorder, or BIID, is a psychological condition in which the individual requests an elective amputation or desires a different body image in some other way, for example to be disabled and having to use leg or spinal bracing.)
which while in some instances may be true I do not necessarily feel this is the case in regards to my interests.
I do not want to have anything amputated or want to rely on said appliances but the thought of owning them, wearing them and being photographed in them is exciting.
