Emetophilia is the sexual arousal from vomiting, or watching others vomit. It is sometimes referred to as a vomit fetish, and the fetish is considered a paraphilia. Some emetophiles practice the fetish by having their partner vomit from performing deep-throat oral sex. An object or body part (including fingers, a hand, a foot, or a penis) pushed deep into a sex partner's throat can trigger their gag reflex and eventually make them vomit. This is becoming an increasingly popular trend in internet pornography for its shock effect and as a form of erotic humiliation or degradation. Other emetophiles prefer to vomit themselves, especially on a partner. Or alternatively, get vomited on directly by their partner. This practice is sometimes called a "Roman shower", after the commonly supposed belief in the frequent induction of vomiting at Roman feasts. Emetophiles may also have any combination of these desires simultaneously.
Wanting to be vomited on may be related to a desire to be dominated, while wanting to make someone else vomit may stem from a desire to dominate the partner – see erotic humiliation.
Emetophiles find the act of vomiting arousing; for them, the sequence of "spasm, ejaculation, relief" in vomiting is erotically charged. Other emetophiles can be aroused by seeing, hearing, and smelling others vomit.
This is not to be confused although can in many ways be connected with a similar behavioral performance, bulimia nervosa.
