Fart Fetish Podcast

Raj

A podcast about sexual acceptance in and around eproctophilia. We take a deep dive into sexuality by asking and processing some of the difficult whats, whys, and hows of living with odd and obscure fetishes. This is not a talk show about farts, it’s an exploration of human sexuality. read less

Episode 13: Dil and Jules Return
Dil and Jules both make a return to the podcast and we hear about the mostly positive words of support they received from their previous appearances. They also break down how the gay eproctophilia community works to call out bad actors and we discuss the importance of remembering everyone’s humanity both online and off.  We ponder over kinks that can be enjoyed only as a pure fantasy, like vore, versus those that one might be able to experience in person. I also razz Jules about his hesitation to get more active in online communities when he already exhibits such great confidence in talking to his friends in real life. We talk a bit about the hopeful future Gen Z may have with sexual acceptance more broadly but also the limitations within society as it is right now and what it might take to challenge the status quo. Dil also shares about his journey in joining OnlyFans amid mixed feelings on monetization. This inevitably leads me into a brief reality check on the near requirement of total monetization under survival capitalism. We also parse out the deeper dichotomy of the farter and sniffer roles when it comes to trading personal fart videos online versus meeting up for fart play with someone. And we talk about the expectations of content creators in this space of parasocial relationship between creator and consumer. Dil and Jules also spend some time discussing the necessary second coming out of the closet for homosexual fetishists as well as talk against the presumed notion of the majority that vanilla is the norm. We also dive into what the fetish future looks like to them, the importance of content made with female fetishists in mind, incels and male role models, and the need for introspection and discussion around this fetish with others.  Find the podcast and resources at FartFetishPodcast.com Works Referenced: Ask Ezra by Ezra Algos The Rocket Review by Rob Rocket Arnegard Intro Music: Abstract Fashion Pop by QubeSounds from Pixabay Outro Music: Lifelike by AlexiAction from Pixabay
Episode 8: Interview with Jules

Episode 8: Interview with Jules
Jules shares with us his experiences in talking with people in his life about the fart fetish and how those interactions went both positively and negatively for him. He also talks about his fetish with potential partners so he can better try to find what he’s seeking and ensure they know this fetish is solidly a part of his life. Jules reminds us all that much of the result often comes from how you ask for it. We spend some time sharing our thoughts on if this fetish is inborn and talking about the normative BDSM scene. Jules mentions facesitting as fairly mainstream which hasn’t been my experience so I ask about his perspective on that and he shares some of his experiences. Would anyone deliberately choose a fart fetish given that it seems to be akin to activating Hard mode in terms of relationships? We also talk about boundaries, monetization, and Jules shares about some of the policing that’s going on to try to clean up predatory and creepy behavior in gay fart fetish communities. He also shares about finding a bit of community in talking with creators on OnlyFans but also some of the faking and exploitation by some creators that occurs as well. Jules and I also talk about the potential benefits of having a gender and sexuality neutral fart fetish community space online to talk fetish but also the everyday stuff that we do outside of our sexuality.  In Jules’ reason for being on this episode he makes two very astute points that bear repeating here: “Figuring out your fetishes can help you figure out who you are as a person and you can trust the people in your lives and not be afraid of them getting rid of you.” These are vital to remember for all of us struggling with eproctophilia or other fetishes. Jules expresses an ease, confidence, and humor about the fetish that I think can be a strong example of how we all can be open about this fetish to the right people in our lives. Don’t let fear consume you.

Episode 7: Community Within Our Community

Episode 7: Community Within Our Community
I do a bit of a State of the Union on fart fetishism as I discuss some of the early demographics of this show as well as do some coverage of other podcasts which have discussed fart fetish in the past. One of the best examples I’ve heard of outside fart fetish coverage comes from the Howie Mandel Does Stuff Podcast where Howie and his daughter spoke to Stephanie Matto of $1,000 fart jar fame. Another good example was the Other People’s Lives podcast speaking with a fetishist to relay his perspective much like we do on this podcast with our guests.  A number of other podcasts handled the topic in an okay manner but a few were downright disrespectful and deliberately obtuse with no real care given to the subject matter. It’s these podcasts and even the good one-off episode that fuels me to make this podcast a regular fixture of the fart fetish kink. I want this podcast to be here so other fetishists like me have somewhere to turn for support and advice because together and with honesty is how we achieve our goals personally and as a community.  I share a few of my earliest fantasies that I can recall and I ponder my presumed origins of the fart fetish for me. Are fetishes inborn? Are taboos an element of intimacy? I wonder aloud about a potential exploitative nature to farting amongst friends when one is a closeted fart fetishist. I also get a bit heated talking about the need to be precise when speaking on fetishes we may not understand. I talk about my personal thoughts on sessioning with a ProDomme. I reiterate the need to try to eliminate shame around eproctophilia and go forward in talking about the fetish with the right people in our lives. The more people around us that know a fetishist, the more effective we can be at de-stigmatizing and normalizing the fetish broadly.  Find the podcast and resources at FartFetish.info Works Referenced: Howie Does Stuff: "Episode #45: Stephanie Matto Almost Died Selling Her Farts in a Jar for How Much?!"

Episode 6: Interview with Dil

Episode 6: Interview with Dil
Dil talks to us about a community history he has written called ‘A Brief History of the Fart Community’ which tracks some of the progression of the fetish over the years mostly within the sphere of the gay eproctophilia community. The defunct website MaleAssRippers is one of the sites heralded as part of the Golden Age of the gay fart community. He also shares some insights about how the fetish differs between straight and gay fetishists. We discuss if there’s any common ground and value in having a mixed gender and sexuality community.  We also hear a bit about the sense of entitlement within the gay fart fetish community when it comes to the dichotomy between producers of content, so called farters, and those solely consuming, also known as sniffers. There’s an expectation in the gay fart fetish community that members should provide content as much as they take. This kind of community fart sharing really doesn’t really happen on the straight side of the fetish where everything from conversation to sessions is commodified and monetized.  Dil and I also discuss a bit about the idea of using fart videos as a form of currency on the internet as well as the difference between soft and true fart pornography. We also talk about exploitation and price gouging in the content space, sub-fetishes of eproctophilia, the importance of fetish representation to combat shame, and some of the creepy behavior that needs to be rooted out of the community for all our sakes.

Episode 5: High Risk Behavior

Episode 5: High Risk Behavior
I begin to lay down some of the foundation for information and community building with the Eproctophilia.org website and the Discord server for this podcast. And I get into a story about a somewhat humorous online Findom experience I had in allowing myself to get taken monetarily. I dive into the alienation and vulnerability that brought me to a place of such desperation and obliviousness to clear red flags. I also share about an eyebrow-raising sexual Craigslist experience I had in my virgin 20s as well as experiences I had with ProDommes including my ex-girlfriend. I encourage more fetishists to get public to improve the perception of our fetish and I try to theorize how we can perhaps have events with fetishes in the periphery of eproctophilia. We must expand our fart fortress! As time goes on will fetish community increasingly gravitate into the metaverse in this new virtual age? I also touch on the narrowness of my own sexual enjoyment and the potential implications of that. And I get a bit personal talking about introversion, self-worth, confidence, projection, and isolation.  A post from Fetlife rhetorically asks about all women mentioning fart fetish want to sell something and I make some commentary on that reality of monetization both practically and economically. I also share some second hand information about the perceived association between eproctophilia and coprophilia in parts of the kink community. I relay some correlations and trends I’ve noticed in this fetish at this point and ask questions that perhaps in time we’ll answer on this podcast. I remain convinced fart fetish can have a presence in the kink community at least and maybe even normalizing farting more broadly is possible. We can only know by doing it. Please join me on this journey.

Episode 4: Interview with Xandar
Xander is a voiceover and YouTube actor on to talk about the fart fetish for him as well as some of the more personal struggles he faced as a mildly autistic person with such a fetish. Together we spend a lot of time discussing an ideal world where this fetish is more widely recognized in the sexual marketplace and that there was a culture of encouragement around comfortably talking about sex, including fart fetish, more openly.  Xander also talks a bit about when he discovered this fart fetish as a result of having to raise himself through his puberty years. He shares about his bisexuality, the fetish fantasies for himself, and his hesitance to bring up the fetish with therapists. We talk about the need for some semblance of community support so all of us have somewhere to go for advice and to connect with like minds that understand and care for each other's well being. We can help ourselves not feel so lonely by simply coming together.  We discuss the fear of being shunned around this fetish but I also relay the positive experiences I’ve had in telling people I have this fetish. I try to encourage that despite the trolls and bullies, we should still be ourselves and enjoy what we like without fear. We shouldn’t have to pander to the norm of people who don’t even like or respect us. Both of us also talk a bit about our experiences working as creators in amateur video erotica and Xander relays that many of my stories, written as Closet Fetishist, were among his early erotica discoveries.

Episode 3: Interview with Damien

Episode 3: Interview with Damien
Damien gives the podcast the first glimpse into some of the differences in approach to the fart fetish between the gay and straight sides of the fetish. He talks about liking both female and male farts but having a more intense attraction to farting men as part of guy culture and a way to experience comradery. Is our orientation determined by our fetishes and sex acts alone? Damien also highlights the humor aspect of this fetish but also the importance of authenticity in that the farting situations can’t be forced. Damien is more of a farter in this fetish and enjoys showing off his skill which is something he picked up from his father who is well known amongst family and friends for farting proudly. He talks about farting in terms of rebellion, vulnerability, and reframing past trauma. Damien also discusses some of his experiences, preferences, and related fetishes like body inflation and pants pooping.  We also hear Damien’s theory that he converted his interest in youthful horseplay and farting into a turn on for himself to maintain the connection. He also shares about his sometimes surreal upbringing and especially talks about his dad who demonstrates that farting and the attraction to it is perhaps genetic. Damien also asks whether this attraction to farts is more prevalent than people want to admit and we ponder why community seems to be stronger on the gay side of fart fetish. We also talk a bit about the need for more diverse content and how to grow this introspective sect of fart fetishists.

Episode 2: The Need for More Public Fetishists

Episode 2: The Need for More Public Fetishists
I get a bit riled as I reiterate my message and purpose for starting the Fart Fetish Podcast as well as begin to lay down some hard truths about what it will take to go forward. Do we want to be an actual community or is our fraternity a mere circumstance of enjoying the same adult content? Are we willing to be publicly out as fart fetishists? I spend some time reading and reacting to the full text of Eproctophilia in a Young Adult Male by Mark D. Griffiths Ph.D. The pseudonymous and 22 year old ‘Brad’ presents a convoluted, at times vague, case for the fetish which is doubly distressing in that Brad is now the sole academic example of eproctophilia. Many fetishists, myself included, differ wildly from Brad and I think their perspective should be equally as notable and recognized as Brad’s. Brad does not represent the entirety of fart fetishists. I discuss an example of a hastily written clickbait article from Pulse.ng titled “5 reasons some people are aroused by farts” and make impassioned comments around the Stephanie Matto fart jar story. I also mention one of my prepubescent fantasies I recall around the film Goldeneye and talk a little about my presumed origins of the fetish.

Episode 1: Why Podcast?
Jan 7 2022
Episode 1: Why Podcast?
In this first ever episode of the Fart Fetish Podcast, I lay out my reasons for wanting to make a podcast on this topic. One reason is the desire to control the conversation around this fetish especially in relation to the media where articles or other podcasts have covered eproctophilia with much less nuance and sometimes much less respect. It’s my desire with this podcast to show that fetishists are normal people and the few loud creeps do not represent the community as a whole.  Another reason for doing the podcast is that fart fetish is not currently considered notable enough for the websites of record like Wikipedia so there’s not a good place to share information about this fetish. I also spend some time urging all of us to move towards comfort and self-acceptance in being able to talk about this fetish with trusted partners and friends. Speaking out openly about this fetish is how we normalize it and it’s also how we find the partner we want.  And frankly, I’ve reached the nothing to lose stage of my life so I want to use that energy for the potential betterment of us all. Hopefully I’ll help myself too along the way.  I spend time discussing some of the discourteous framing used by reputable news outlets like Huffpost when covering eproctophilia. I also talk about my desire to build a real community around this fetish and podcast, an introspective niche looking to dig into this fetish and the psychology around it. I also read from the Psychology Today article by Mark D. Griffiths Ph.D. covering the only known fart fetish case study he conducted of a pseudonymous fetishist named ‘Brad.’  I’m sorry that the recording is a little rough on this episode, I really jumped into recording this episode without taking some necessary steps to keep the audio as clean and professional as possible.
