Urolagnia (also urophilia, undinism, golden shower and watersports) is a form of salirophilia (which is a form of paraphilia) in which sexual excitement is associated with the sight or thought of urine or urination.[1] The term has origins in the Greek language (from ouron, urine, and lagneia, lust).[2][dead link][3]


As a paraphilia, urine may be consumed or the person may bathe in it. Other variations include arousal from wetting or seeing someone else urinate in their pants or underclothes, or wetting the bed. Other forms of urolagnia may involve a tendency to be sexually aroused by smelling urine-soaked clothing or body parts. In many cases, a strong correlation or conditioning arises between urine smell or sight and the sexual act. For some individuals the phenomenon may include a diaper fetish and/or arousal from infantilism.

Watersports may also be used in a BDSM scene as a form of humiliation, sometimes involving desperation until incontinence or infantilization, sometimes physical humiliation associated with being urinated on or pressured to consume urine. In some cases, a person is aroused by merely staging situations where others can either witness that person wet his or her clothing or smell his or her urine scent.

Urolagnia is sometimes associated with, or confused with, arousal from having a full bladder or a sexual attraction to someone else experiencing the discomfort or pain of a full bladder, possibly a sadomasochistic inclination. In the hanky code, urolagnia is symbolized by a yellow bandana in the right or left pants pocket.

Common variations[edit]

Notable urophiliacs[edit]

In animals[edit]

Female kob (antelope) perform oral sex on each other and even stroke each other's vulvas with their forelegs. They may exhibit urolagnia during sex, one female will urinate while the other sticks her nose in the stream.[12][13]

A male Patagonian mara, a type of rodent, will stand on his hind legs and urinate on a female’s rump, to which the female will respond by spraying a jet of urine backwards into the face of the male.[14] The male’s urination is meant to repel other males from his partner while the female’s urination is a rejection of any approaching male when she is not receptive.[14] Both anal digging and urination are more frequent during the breeding season and are more commonly done by males.[15]

A male porcupine urinates on a female porcupine prior to mating, spraying the urine at high velocity.[16][17][18][19][20]
