PSYCHOLOGY, SEXOLOGY

A paraphilia in which sexuoeroticism hinges on the female partner’s/ partners’ mammary tissue to the virtual exclusion of the woman’s other physical features. Breast fetishism is not formally recognised in the DSM 5*.

*Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (2013), American Psychiatric Association, Washington, DC. While zoologists may claim that a focus on the breasts serves some sort of biological imperative, feminist film critic Molly Haskell huffily sniffed, The mammary fixation is the most infantile, and the most American, of sex fetishes

Synonyms Breast partialism, mammagynophilia, mammaphilia, mammophilia, mastofact, mastophilia, mazophilia
