A guilty pleasure is something, such as a film, a television program or a piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard, or is seen as unusual or weird.[1][2]

Fashion, video games, music, theatre, television series, films, food and fetishes can be examples of guilty pleasures.
