    Default Oral Fixation

    I am constantly putting my fingers in my mouth, chewing on them, chewing on my nails, chewing on pens, putting bobby pins in my mouth. Does anyone else feel a compulsion to do these sorts of things? I can't be the only weirdo who chews on straws.

    don't be dirtbags

    I never would have guessed!

    I used to be quite bad at biting my nails, but then my mother bought me some horrid nail biting solution, which she painted on my nails. For some reason, it worked. I hardly ever bite my nails now.

    I some times chew on wrist bands and cups. My teeth are preparing me for the day I may have to survive off of inanimate objects.

    I like to chew on my DS stylus.

    My compulsion is skin-picking based. It's called dermatillomania. I have to pick at my skin constantly, mainly my fingers. My fingers always pretty much look like they've been in a blender.

    For me it's toothpicks. I always have a toothpick in my mouth. I'm forever ripping them apart. If I can't find a toothpick I will bend paper clips straight so I can have the feeling. It's nuts.

    Just whatever pen I am using at work. It's great because then no one ever wants to steal my pens or anything because they think I treat all my office supplies like lollipops!

    My mom did that, too. It didn't work.

    I bite on my nails, the skin around the nails. I used to chew ice obsessively, before I had my surgery. From what I understand is people who are malnourished tend to chew ice a lot.

    I'm so grossed out by people biting their fingers and it is worse to me than nail biting. The thought of them chewing their own skin sends shivers down my spine.

    The answer is no! I use to when I was like 5. I sucked my thumb and bit my nails.

    Oh, I also remembered eating paper for a while. I've no idea why I ate it, I just... did, I guess. I grew out of that pretty fast. I occasionally eat ice but only if I'm staring forlornly at my empty drink and I compel myself to get the last scraps of liquid from it.

    My bong is my oral fixation.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I will be mentioning sex here. But, I'm not being dirty: this is science (apologies for any inaccuracies, A level Psychology was quite a while ago).

    Have you every heard of the Psychosexual stages? It's an idea which was first popularised by Freud.

    The theory is that whilst your body and mind are developing, you pass through different stages of sexual development.

    Each stage - oral, anal, phallic, latent and genital (we used the mnemonic Old Age Pensioners Like Goats in A level Psychology) - is characterised by the part of the body which is the main focus of the sex drive.

    At each stage of development, there is the possibility that you will become "fixated": although you will likely still pass through the later stages of development, you will on some level remain "fixed" in that particular stage.

    Freud would argue that a strong desire to chew objects or put them in your mouth shows that you are "fixated" on the oral stage.

    These ideas still have quite a strong influence on psychoanalytic thinking, although many of the details have been dismissed or discredited.
