Chremastistophilia (from Greek stem χρηματιστής chrematistes and the suffix -philia) is a paraphilia whereby sexual arousal is obtained from being robbed, being held up, or alternatively from being charged for sexual services.[1] Kleptolagnia is its opposite, sexual arousal obtained through theft or breaking and entering.

Chremastistophilia is accepted as potentially lethal, other such paraphilias including, but not being limited to, asphyxiophilia, autassassinophilia, hybristophilia, and biastophilia.[2]
