The term comes from the Greek words dacry- meaning "tears," and philia meaning "love."
Dacryphilia is not limited to BDSM and may be experienced by those who do not consider themselves a dominant or submissive. They may be aroused when their partner cries during a movie or from the normal emotional vulnerability and strong feelings of love that may make a partner cry during intercourse.
