strange fetishes psychrophilia— psychrophiliacs would rather get a brain freeze than a hard on, and Frosty the Snowman is their Sexiest Man Alive
Strange fetishes psychrophilia edition....
Sometimes relationships turn cold, and that's considered a bad thing.
For those who hit the theaters to see Frozen with this in mind were surely sorely disappointed.
Strange fetishes psychrophilia 411:
While the majority of folks like their lovin' “hot and heavy," psychrophiliacs would rather get a brain freeze than a hard on, and Frosty the Snowman is their version of the Sexiest Man Alive.
Eskimos aside, it seems unusual that being cold would arouse anyone.
We've all heard about the cases of unwanted “shrinkage," and getting undressed in order to get it on would be uncomfortable at best in sub-zero temps.
Goosebumps and frostbite seem less than sexy, and numb fingers would make for a clumsy make out session.
As far as arousal from watching others freeze, while still unusual, seems easier to grasp.
We all know what happens to a woman's “headlights" when the temperature drops, and all that shaking and shivering may entice another to get that frozen guy or gal into their embrace right away.
Though the snotty nose and chattering teeth which often accompany a freezing person's reactions seem sexually repulsive to say the least.
But yes, there is a world of unusual sexual fetishes and kinks out there and who are we to judge what turns another on in the privacy of their own bedroom.
Which raises the point – can this fetish be brought to life in an actual bedroom.
Who keeps their home at below freezing temps?
Apparently, those interested in getting frisky while freezing must be part exhibitionist too.
An ice skating rink or a meat locker would be the perfect setting for some cold-hearted romance.
Now that you know about psychrophilia, it's time to give a second look at some of the everyday people you may want to give another once-over to.
That friendly ice cream truck driver could be getting handsy with those snow cones after hours.
And ice carving experts who create masterpieces for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs?
Potential total pervs.
What about those people constantly chewing on ice chips after their soda is done.
Are they engaging in a public display of foreplay with the ice dispenser?
All valid questions that deserve a cold hard answer.
So if you're looking to expand upon what's on your sexual menu, perhaps it's time to freeze in order to please.
Participate in a polar bear swim.
Switch from hot to iced coffee.
Stick your tongue to a flagpole in the dead of winter.
Shove your bare ass in the freezer.
Whatever gets your temperature to drop and your libido to rise is what's important here.
For those engaging in psychrophilia, it's all about having the “colds" for someone rather than the hots.
Ice queens are as desired as the girl next door.
Snowballs are sex toys.
Ice pops are no longer an innocent treat and getting free refills on Slurpees is like having multiple climaxes.
Are you ready to freeze your ass off for your or another's sexual pleasure?
Put on a little Ice, Ice, Baby and pour a drink on the rocks to get your rocks off!

Plus celebrities react to Nigerian protests.
Young people across Nigeria have been pouring into the streets for the last two weeks to protest police brutality, specifically the controversial special police force known as the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Tension came to a head on Tuesday when armed forces fired on protestors in Lagos, the biggest city in Nigeria, who were out past the state-mandated curfew. According to AP News, "Police also fired tear gas at one point, and smoke could be seen billowing from several areas in the city's center. Two private TV stations were forced off the air at least temporarily as their offices were burned."
Not all non-binary people prefer gender-neutral pronouns.
October 21, 2020 marks the third annual International Pronouns Day.
Created by an independent board and first observed in 2018, it's one of those small commemorative holidays that trends on Twitter in hopes of drawing attention to a pressing social issue, like International Women's Day (March 8th) or the ever so serious National Taco Day (October 4).
But Pronouns Day in particular "seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace." The organization's website further describes, "Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people's multiple, intersecting identities."
But in the words of nonbinary activist and Trevor Project's Head of Advocacy and Government Afairs, Sam Brenton, "Pronouns are hard." Never before have pronouns been scrutinized as closely as they are in 2019 for their power to (in)validate or accurately describe something as fluid as gender identity. In fact, it was only this year that the Merriam-Webster Dictionary expanded the definition of "they" "to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary" (thus codifying a long history in English language of using "they" to refer to a singular non-gendered entity).

But throwing an additional wrench in the works is the fact that not all non-binary people prefer gender-neutral pronouns.
Take me, for instance: Despite having female biology, I couldn't pass a lie detector test saying I'm a "woman." But my pragmatic, Puritan family is still endearingly confused by the idea of "liberal arts," let alone the notion of gender fluidity. And I'd rather share a communal language with them than do the emotional and mental labor of re-orienting their worldview for them. Plus, I have the privilege of passing as female without feeling too, too, terribly dysphoric (which non-binary people can definitely suffer from, despite not identifying as trans).
But enough about me, look at Queer Eye's beloved Jonathan Van Ness. While he's been outspoken about being genderqueer, gay, and HIV positive, he prefers he/him pronouns. "The older I get, the more I think that I'm nonbinary," Van Ness said. "I'm gender nonconforming. Like, some days I feel like a man, but then other days I feel like a woman." As he told Out magazine, he doesn't identify as a man, but he does prefer "he/him/his" pronouns. In his view, those pronouns don't detract from or contradict his non-binary identity, because gender is not about simple binaries between masculine and feminine identifiers. "Any opportunity I have to break down stereotypes of the binary, I am down for it, I'm here for it," he said. "I think that a lot of times gender is used to separate and divide. It's this social construct that I don't really feel like I fit into the way I used to."
On the other hand, last month non-binary singer Sam Smith announced that their preferred pronouns are "they/them." Smith posted to Instagram, "I've decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM ❤ after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I've decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out." People like Smith and Trevor Project's Sam Brenton simply feel more validated, seen, heard, and true to themselves with gender-neutral pronouns. Smith wrote, "I'm so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I've been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f*ck it!"
Most importantly, as pretty much every non-binary person and activist is aware, changing cultural norms is hard. While LGBTQ+ activism is inspired and passionate and dedicated to expanding human rights to all gender identities, we all know that changing society's entire understanding of gender and pronoun usage is about slowly opening minds. As Smith wrote, "I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you." Happy Pronouns Day to you/him/her/they/(f)aer/zim.
