|Look up vorarephilia in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.|
Vorarephilia (often shortened to vore) is a paraphilia wherein sexual arousal occurs in response to the idea of someone/something/yourself eating or being eaten by someone/something/yourself. The fantasy sometimes involves the victim being swallowed dead or alive and may or may not include digestion.
It is most often enjoyed through pictures, stories, videos, and video games, and can appear in mainstream media. Other examples to this are being eaten whole. In some cases, vorarephilia may be described as a variation of macrophilia and may combine with other paraphilias.
Armin Meiwes was a cannibal who acted out his fantasy with a willing victim. After reports of the "Rotenburg Cannibal" appeared in the media, websites began appearing in which people advertised for volunteers to be eaten. this was the result of a cannibal fetish and possibly other forms of mental illness, he was grouped in with the vore community despite objections and general distaste from the vore community of this grouping.
