ew--a vomit fetish?

Paging puke & cry, will Mr. p&c please come to thread #41776...

[this is gross]

But, hey, this is one of the things that the Internet does best - cater for all those weird unusual fetishes interests. Otherwise, people who are into this stuff would be going insane thinking there must be something wrong with them to be turned on by these things.

true, dg, but this guy wasn't satisfied with online satisfaction.

Damn, that is pretty seriously fucked up. I mean, I thought the bare foot squishing bugs fetish site was weird but this is a whole step beyond. Who gets turned on by puke?

I liked the part where he still wants to be a doctor.

The article doesn't say anything about this being sexual. Maybe he's just a psychopath who likes to make people puke because doing so amuses him?

Either way, if he's doing it on purpose, it's tantamount to torturing squirrels. The guy should be watched, but I don't see how everyone's automatically assuming that this is a sexual thing.

I recently was invited to a quite swanky party where a very well-dressed, impeccably groomed and obviously rich man in his early thirties explained to me, a few minutes after I had been introduced to him by a mutual acquaintance, that the only sexual activity that at this point gives him intense pleasure is barfing on very beautiful naked women.

mostly, he has to pay for the privilege, he pointed out slightly annoyed (oh how the rich can be cheap, damn them).

needless to say, I left the (otherwise very cool) party a couple hours later completely appalled. I still am when I think about it.

did anyone else check this out? it hasn't been mentioned...

strange strange thing... sfw, as best as i can tell, and perhaps the most unusual web site i've seen in a long, long time...

vomit.com

You should have gotten really hammered and yakked on him. Maybe he would've come out of the closet or something.

No, but the availability of information on-line validates these activities as being "normal", as opposed to keeping them in the closet.

matteo, I have heard of (but not met, fortunately) someone who gets off by having a woman vomit while giving him fellatio.

HuronBob, that site gives me only a mailto: link?

So, slipping someone syrup of ipecac counts as second-degree assault?

Of course, I would be angry if this prank had been played on me, but that's all that it is, a prank, akin to placing in a real worm in a container of gummy worms. I've seen this done, and the victim did puke, but the only consequence was that the perpetrator was held down by four guys and his nose rubbed in the vomit.

I'm not defending ANY of these actions, but I certainly think our court system is wasting my tax dollars by pursuing this.

dg, that's right... but the strange picture, off center, nothing else, but the mailto link... odd...

i wouldn't advise using that link.... creepy

Chasuk.. I disagree.... You have said that poisoning someone isn't bad, as long is it isn't TOO much poison... Sorry, he had no right and should be prosecuted...

Not a waste of tax dollars, this bozo wasn't going to stop at that...

Just when you think you've seen everything, something you haven't heard about takes you by surprise.

I'm quite the tolerant guy, but frankly a vomit fetish is just... weird.

I once found a site (hi, stileproject!) that had pictures of girls in a classroom together having pillow fights while naked and things like that. After a few pics, it degenerated into a series of photographs that (to put it lightly) depicted all of the girls shitting all over one another, including into their mouths, then puking onto one another, including into their mouths and anuses, then shitting that back and forth like that ad nauseum.

It was the most disgusting thing I have ever seen, except for the iraqi beheading videos, and the whole time the girls were smiling. Not strained, "Please make it stop," smiles, either. Big beaming laughing-as-they-play smiles.

There's a market for anything.

Probably vomit.com has been changed since this article came out, but I've read the linked article three times now, and I don't see where the "vomit fetish" is explicitly alluded to, other than amberglow's first comment.

People who are psychopaths like to manipulate people. Vomiting does not seem out of line with this kind of behavior. Am I missing something, or is there a sexual aspect to this--other than how the victims were all girls--that I'm missing? Why is this automatically assumed to be sexually driven?
posted by interrobang at 6:08 PM on May 5, 2005


Chasuk, giving someone drugs to make them throw up is certain assault in just the same way that punching them in the nose is.

If I knew you weren't going to do permanent damage, I'd rather you punched me in the nose rather than made me throw up... I *hate* throwing up.

Not to mention that causing someone to throw up isn't a minor thing for their system. If you keep doing it, some day you will kill someone.

As I re-read this, I'm wondering if Chasuk was trolling us?

Well, one victim does mention Das staring at her as she threw up, which she tought was creepy.

This guy seems guilty as hell, if only from his offering to apologize without admitting guilt and saying that "if he did something like this he'd only use an emetic".

Are you serious? A prank? So he was just playing a little joke on the multiple women he fed this chemical to? Anyway, if he were just pulling a prank I think he should have at least tried a little more creativity.

Interrobang: I made the initial assumption this was perpetrated for sexual reasons. As you point out, though, there's nothing in the article to suggest that this was his motive. Now I don't know whether I think it's a sexual thing or a psychopathic thing, and I don't know which I find creepier.

Wait, yes I do. If it were sexual, at least the possibility exists for finding consenting pukers. If it's psychopathic, the deception & lack of consent may be a larger part of the motivation, which ranks much higher on the creep scale.

In summary: ick.

That picture looks like Babs Bush and King George I visiting in Japan.

I note that the targets of the attack were all women.

Ick.

The man certainly deserves psychiatric help if he has done as alleged, but vomiting isn't really much different from oral diarrhea, and would this be second-degree assault if he had instead placed a laxative in the candy bowl, at a party, say?

That's the sort of thing that drunken, stupid people do. There MIGHT be a further element to this, but that's for the courts to decide. If he did as he was accused, and if he was getting a sexual thrill out of it, then the sick lad needs help. But incarceration? Not in my opinion, and no, I'm not trolling.

I know a girl who has such a strong fear of vomit that she cannot go near amusement parks, or children, for fear that she might witness an upchuck.
posted by stray at 11:40 PM on May 5, 2005


Interrobang, yes, a repetition of the "prank", women only, him staring but not sharing the "prank, all suggest a sexual fetish. Vomit usually goes along with urine and faeces, as far as sexual fetishes go. There are even weirder fetishes, some combined with S&M practices. I'm sure a google search on sexual fetishes will provide some enlightening links. Anyone here ever seen "10 days at Sodoma" by Pasolini?

tantamount to torturing squirrels

Personally, I've always felt profoundly better after puking. And after crying.
posted by graventy at 6:57 AM on May 6, 2005


Well, I guess you should try and meet this guy, huh?


And yeah, this is assault - poisoning someone falls under that category for me.

Well, it could be both psychotic and sexual. I think the reason that people think this is sexual is that we know some people are into this as a sexual thing. Normal people can get any kind of weird kink.

As far as assult goes, you really have to take into account how uncomfortable the act makes someone. I mean, If I punched you in the face, you'd heal, right? I mean it hurts but what ultimately is the problem?

If I was one of those girls I'd be freaked out and scared. Even if the bizzare sexuality didn't freak me right the fuck out the fact that I would have been given some type of unknown poison would be very frightening.

Context is important, if this had been done at a drunken frat party, (where people are already throwing up from alchohol) it really would be diffrent.*

*or maybe not. It all depends on wether or not you think it's just a harmless prank or a creepy sexual assult.

Err... by 'you' I mean the victim.

I agree that this is assault and certainly deserves some kind of punishment. If he had done this to me, I would want him to lose his job, be required to seek therapy, and have to do a ton of community service--at least. Otherwise, I would feel compelled to beat the shit out of him. I hate puking.
