Uh Oh, Your Baby Bump Photos Could End Up On Pregnancy Fetish Sites

Pregnancy is a sacred time. It’s an exciting experience, and sharing photos of your growing belly online may seem like a good idea since you’re able to capture the moments and make new memories while waiting for the baby’s arrival.

Unfortunately, as several birth organisations have warned, such pregnancy photos are apparently being utilised in a really disgusting way when they fall into the wrong hands.

Introducing: preggophilia a.k.a. maiesiophilia

If you’ve never heard the term “preggophile” before, join the club. It doesn’t seem to be in standard dictionaries, but the Wikipedia entry on pregnancy fetishism notes that it’s also known as maiesiophilia or maieusophoria. I won’t say that they’re sickos but.. 

Reportedly, at least one preggophile is lying his (or her) way on Facebook to steal baby bump pics for a pregnancy fetish site, Facebook groups like this one as well as private Whatsapp groups to share photos of pregnant bellies and asking other members to share theirs.

So be careful ladies! Think twice before you post images of your sexy bodies on Facebook. Your photos should be carefully shared with whom you choose, so it won’t be stolen for the gratification of others.
