(Redirected to Crush fetish article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A crush fetish is a paraphilia which primarily consists of the desire to see others (generally a desirable potential partner) crush or step on an object or an insect.[1] Crushing by feet can be the main focus (although other methods are implemented, such as sitting on the target object or animal). The foot (barefoot or in shoes) is thus often idolised in crush erotica such as magazines, audio tapes and crush films.


Crush film

Crush films are videos of small insects, animals such as ants, or spiders,[2] food, or objects being crushed by being stepped on.[3][4] Jeff Vilencia is one known director of crush films, such as Smush![5] He has been obsessed with crushing since a small age, and has stated that when he was 2 or 3 years old, he kept trying to get people to step on him.[6]

There are underground productions which people buy for sexual pleasure, but due to some videos involving small creatures, some films have been made illegal in certain regions. The legality of crush erotica and the actual practice of crushing varies by region.

Crush films' legal status

There are currently no known laws forbidding the crushing of live invertebrates, although the production or trade of crush erotica involving rodents is condemned by animal rights activists and is illegal in many countries, including the United States and Great Britain.[7]

United States

In 1999, the United States Congress enacted a statute affecting the legality of crush films which criminalized the creation, sale, and possession of depictions of animal cruelty, though with an exception for "any depiction that has serious religious, political, scientific, educational, journalistic, historical, or artistic value."[8] In 2008, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit invalidated the ban on the sale and possession of such films (if not otherwise obscene) as a violation of the Constitution's guarantee for freedom of speech.[9] The United States Supreme Court heard an appeal in the case, United States v. Stevens.[10]
