Navel fetishism , belly button fetishism , or alvinophilia     is a partialism in which an individual is attracted to the human navel. According to a study, it is a moderately prevalent fetish among individuals. A navel fetishist can be sexually aroused by a variety of stimuli, including key words, thoughts or specific forms of physical interaction with the navel. Some navel fetishists find physical acts involving the navel to be turn-ons. Some fetishists get a turn-on from pouring drops of champagne, honey, chocolate sauce , whipped cream , etc. The navel is an erogenous zone with a heightened sensitivity. Some prefer to perform navel torture, a series of pain-inflicting acts such as sucking or pulling the navel out often with a syringe , dripping hot oil or wax into the navel, poking pins into the navel,  and stabbing the navel. This attention is usually directed at a partner's navel,   but may include a fixation on the fetishist's own navel. A sex worker in Turkey stated that some men have attempted to have sexual intercourse by inserting their penis into her navel.

Slender, muscular stomachs are especially desired, while some people prefer stomachs with more fat. For people with alvinolagnia, their sexual arousal is closely linked to the stomachs of their partners or people they find attractive. They may also enjoy having their own bellies stimulated in a similar fashion. People with alvinolagnia may enjoy touching or being touched on the stomach with their fingers or other body parts, or with external aids like brushes or feathers. Some people with alvinolagnia even find it sexually thrilling to punch their partner in the stomach. This would be considered a form of edgeplay. Many people with alvinolagnia also enjoy watching belly dancing, as the focus is centred on the bare midriff. Some people with alvinolagnia may feel attraction to the entire midriff, and see the navel as merely one component of this area.
Welcome to Reddit,
While it seems that one can't tweet a shoe emoji without hitting an online foot fetishist, those who get off to navels do not show themselves so readily. Yes, belly button porn is findable, but not in the same centralized, commodified, and advertised way as other jerk-off material in There is no XBelly or NavelHub. On mainstream porn sites, you won't see banners advertising horny teens in search of daddies to fuck them where their umbilical cords used to be. While nearly every other fetish seems to have unionized in some way--under the banner of shared search terms or a common website--it seemed to me initially that belly button lovers remain both discrete, as in isolated, and discreet, as in private.
