“A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt


Albutophilia is getting arousal from underwater sex. It can be considered a subset of aquaphilia, since for albutophiliacs the sexual arousal comes only from having sexual activity in water whereas aquaphilia includes being aroused from images of people in water and seeing people in water.

Getting into Hot Water

Albutophilia is specifically about sexual activity occurring underwater. For some it can simply be about having sex in water, but it can be so much more than that. Oral sex underwater is a big part of this fetish, as is completely submersed sex. The obvious problem with this is breathing. Unfortunately, we are not fish and we cannot breath underwater. This means that the albutophiliac must get good at holding their breath. This means that breath play can also be a part of this fetish, though is not necessary. 

Sex under water can be highly erotic. Movements are more languid and fluid and a bit more difficult. You really have to work to connect with your partner because you can literally float away from each other. There is a sensuality in the connection that happens underwater. Also there is an element of secrecy. People cannot often see what you are doing underwater. It’s the mullet of sex, business up top and a party underneath.
