coprophilia: (adjective, coprophilic): a paraphilia of the fetishistic/talismanic type in which sexuoerotic arousal and facilitation or attainment of orgasm are responsive to, and contingent on observing defecation and/or being smeared with and/or ingesting feces [from Greek, kropos, dung + -philia]. There is no technical term for the reciprocal paraphilic conditions of defecating in the mouth or over the body of the partner. Synonym, coprolagnia. 2. the condition of being responsive to, or dependent on, the smell or taste of feces for the erotic arousal and the facilitation or achievement of orgasm. From the point of view of the species, it probably has its origins in mammalian hygiene whereby infants are licked clean. In individual biography, the correlation between feces and eroticism is varied in origin. It may be related to masochism and self deprecation. Coprophilia may involve also the sight and sound of a person defecating. See also scat; urophilia.
