“No nude, however abstract, should fail to arouse in the spectator some vestige of erotic feeling, even if it be only the faintest shadow – and if it does not do so it is bad art and false morals.”

-Kenneth Clark


Iconolagny refers to finding sexual arousal by looking at naked statues of people.

The Fetish

The look of immobile bodies made of stone, metal, wood or other materials invokes an erotically charged response in the viewer, that may make them want to have sex or begin masturbating. This fetish can be enacted in public spaces or at a private residence, as long as there are statues of naked human bodies within view. Since naked statues of people have been around for as long as stone has been carved or wood has been whittled, this is most likely a very old fetish.

What To Do

Visiting a museum with a sculpture garden is definitely one way that you can enact this fetish, but be prepared for it to be very public when you get excited. If so, you may be able to enact a fantasy of public sex with a partner as well – just make sure you won’t get in trouble with security. Making erotic friends with their own collections of naked sculptures may also be a way to go, or establishing connections with professional sculptors that create them. Finding a sculptor that can form nude sculptures, or possibly even learning how to sculpt them yourself would take your kink to a whole new level! There are a number of different ways to pursue an erotic interest in naked sculptures, but finding others that may share this interest will take a bit of conversation.
