Axillism or Armpit fetishism (also known as maschalagnia) is a partialism in which an individual is sexually attracted to armpits.[1]

The attraction is mostly directed towards the strong pungent odor of the armpit. The odor of the armpit is the most powerful in the body, sufficiently powerful to act as a muscular stimulant even in the absence of any direct sexual association.[2]
