Revolting question: What fascinates people about certain excretions?

Asked by ZEPHYRA (15176 points ) February 23rd, 2012

Popping pimples must be a favorite sport of many. What is it about that sebum that fascinates people so much. I noticed thousands of videos on people popping pimples and relishing every moment. I understand the sense of relief but the obsession????

I don’t want to be put on the spot here, but maybe that’s just zit, some people thrive on yukkiness.

I pop my pimples just because I hate having them :(

It is pretty darn gross… yuck… but people are fascinated with gross things :(

All sorts of weird fetishes out there lol…. I don’t understand it.

It seems there are videos on every conceivable topic nowadays. If you go on fetish sites, there are people that are aroused by all kinds of bodily secretions.

I’m of the serious and likely unpopular opinion that some people are just… gross.

Yeah, I don’t know why people like Lady Gaga’s music either.

Probably the pleasure of the sense of relief and anxiety from getting rid of it?

I’m totally fascinated by the youtube videos of abscesses being drained. How the hell does that much pus come out of a human being much less a relatively small spot?!
