Narratophilia is a sexual fetish in which words and stories are sexually arousing, usually by the telling of dirty and obscene words or stories to a partner. For some people, writings or words that are not outright obscene can have the same arousal effect.[1][2] The term is also used for arousal by means of listening to obscene words and stories.[1]
