When I saw a tweet of Jade’s and the word ‘forniphilia’, I had no idea at all what the kink of the week for this week was about. I have never heard the word before and indeed had to look it up. Of course I did not check the dictionary, but just googled it.

Forniphilia = human furniture

My first reaction? Oh, so that’s what it’s called!

My second reaction? What on earth am I going to write about this?

On WikipediaΒ I found only a short piece of information:

Human furniture (or forniphilia) is a form of bondage and sexual objectification in which a person’s body is incorporated into a chair, table, cabinet or other piece of furniture. The term was originally coined by Jeff Gord.

Forniphilia is an extreme form of bondage because the subject is usually tightly bound and expected to stay immobile for a prolonged period. They are often gagged (see forniphilic gag) and/or placed in position where there is a danger of being smothered. Proper safety requires frequent checks of the submissive’s well-being.

I continued my search and came across the website forniphilia.infoΒ where someone once started a website but never continued with it. On here it said:

The act of turning a woman into nothing more than a piece of functional furniture is the ultimate goal for many bondage enthusiast. Often completely immobile the woman finds that she is at least useful to her owner, perhaps performing the role of a table, chair or even hatstand.

I can copy lots of different pieces of text here, but it all comes down to the same thing. Forniphilia is the practice of using another human being as furniture.

If you want to read more about it, you can find search ‘forniphilia’ on Google or read more on the FAQ page of the House of Gord.

Forniphilia is not my thing, that much I am certain about. I cannot imagine myself being a piece of furniture, let alone sit in the same position for a lengthy period. My body can just not handle that.

However… yes, there always is a however. I can recall moments where I might have ‘served’ as human furniture. I am speaking of non-kinky moments and certainly those moments were not about bondage at all. There were times that I enjoyed being used as a footrest. Just to have someone rest his feet on me, while I am lying on the floor. It was not about being a footrest, but I just loved to feel the weight on me. There might be a kink for that too, but that is not what this week’s kink of the week is about.

Even though this is not my kink, it does not say that I admire arty forms of human furniture, like the pictures below I found on tumblr.

As you can see from the first comment on this post, Luise talked about having food served on her body. This is one of the things I have on my 10o1 things in 101 days list. What do you think, does this desire tie in with forniphilia, or is it an entirely different kink?

Kink of the Week

  1. It’s not a nice thing to do; I hate being “furniture”, it’s a good punishment. Messes with the mind in terms of emotional detachment. ;(

  2. Wow – those are some interesting pictures! I think I could get into having food served on my body – seems like this is on a lot of our lists πŸ™‚

  3. I am so with you on this one. I could not think what to write about a subject I had no opinion on, not my thing at all.

    Thank you for writing something so that I could comment!!

    ~Mia~ xx

  4. Oh my woman…. read my post *laughs… I talk about having food served on my naked body too. How on earth did we get to be like this… almost a matching pair.


  5. I have learnt a new word! I dont think I have the stamina for it, but I certainly get the attraction of being stood on or used as a footstool, and the extreme objectification of being furniture. If it was combined with public humiliation I think it is something that I would find exceptionally hot!

  6. Ok yeah I don’t think my body would handle that either. Especially not after the car wreck last month. I am not sure I would even feel wanted in that particular kink. I mean if all you were ever used for was furniture .. definitely something different.

    1. I hope you are okay as it seems you’ve had an accident? And I guess we all have our own kinks… this one is not one of mine either πŸ™‚

  7. It is actually it’s own kink – Nyotaimori. Kind of a “sub set” of forniphilia, I would think! (And yes, I have it on my to-do list for KOTW!

    1. I would think that it has something to do with KOTW too!

      Didn’t know they still do that practice up to now. Better buy myself some sushi and ask that someone to eat it on me while I’m naked. Might as well throw some spaghetti and fried chicken on the side πŸ˜‰ hahaha!

      I am learning too with the KOTW even by just reading and commenting on posts πŸ™‚

  8. There is a restaurant a few years back where they use naked bodies of models as serving plates for different kinds of sushi πŸ™‚

    I would love to be someone’s table one day πŸ˜‰

    1. OMG, thanks Luise! You have just reminded me that this is one of the things on my 101 list. I think I will add it as a side-note to this post πŸ™‚ xox
