Agonophilia refers to a sexual attraction to and/or arousal from physical contests or competitions, such as wrestling, grappling, or fighting. This can involve real or simulated physical activity, and may include activities like rough-and-tumble play, BDSM wrestling, or other forms of rough physical play.

Agonophilia is believed to have originated within the BDSM and fetish communities, and is used to describe a specific sexual fetish or preference for intense physical activity or competition.
It’s worth noting that agonophilia is considered a niche fetish, and not everyone who engages in physical contests or competitions may be aroused by them in a sexual context. Additionally, people who have an agonophilia fetish may also have other fetishes or kinks, and their sexual preferences may evolve over time.
