A breeding fetish is a strong attraction to the idea of getting -- or getting someone else -- pregnant. Frequently, this fetish involves a person with a penis ejaculating into someone with a uterus, “breeding” them. People with a breeding fetish generally enjoy the “risky” feeling of potentially permanent consequences from a sexual act. They may also enjoy a feeling of power exchange, where one partner is “submitting” to the other. 

For some, breeding fetish may be more about role-play and fantasy, and partners engaging in it will use contraception. But for many, breeding fetish involves the exchange of body fluids, so partners risk getting STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) in addition to a potentially unwanted pregnancy.

A pregnancy fetish is an attraction to pregnant people. The fetish might include an appreciation for how bodies change during pregnancy.

On the other hand, a breeding fetish is focused on the act of impregnation. 

Fantasizing about your breeding fetish while masturbating is a common and safe way some people enjoy it on their own. When a breeding fetish with a partner is just about fantasy, it can also be safe.  Breeding roleplay can range from talking about the fetish during sex to actively acting out a scene. When it is more than role-play, however, breeding fetish comes with significant risks. 

Most people engaging in breeding fetish are excited by the idea of pregnancy, but not what comes after. Unless you want to conceive and care for a child, a contraceptive plan is critical.

You should also be cautious about STDs. Having any kind of sex without a barrier puts both you and any partners at risk of transmitting an STD.
