Death Fetishist

During the second season of the American tv show "The X-Files," Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Skully embark on a case to bring down a man that Mulder describes as a "death fetishist."  I think the term was made up by the writers because they feared that the topic of necrophilia was too extreme for non-cable television.  Does anyone know if there is such a thing?  Mulder described a death fetishist as a person that get their sexual kicks by collecting human body parts, such as fingers and hair.

I would not use the term "death fetishist" for such a person. It implies a fascination with death itself, not the collecting of body parts from corpses. However, I'm not entirely sure what the correct term should be; mortecorporaphile maybe?

...sexual kicks by collecting human body parts, such as fingers and hair.   

2004, Ronald F. Becker, Criminal Investigation [3], ISBN 0763731684, page 168:
Quote
The offender is also likely to mentally relive his killings, often with the help of souvenirs or trophies,
 such as a bracelet or a body part taken from the victim.

Paraphilias ...
Particular body parts (not genitalia) = Partialism
Hair = Trichophilia
Amputation (partner) = Acrotomophilia
Amputation (self) = Apotemnophilia

I wonder if you are at odds with your own conscions MDriver.

So far as I can make out, all your posts appear to have sexual fetish overtones. Might I suggest that you speak to someone face to face about this.

If I am wrong in my observation, then I apologise profusely.

Yes MDriver, you are starting to creep me out a bit too. Fetishes are fine as long as they don't hurt anyone else and don't become obsessions that take over your life. If you are a teenager this is a time when your hormones make you go a bit sex mad and sexual plessure can be gained from alsorts of bizarre things but this should calm down with time. If it doesn't then yes seek help or you could end up in trouble.

I have sex for breakfast.  I am not weird sexually, but I do enjoy a good dick joke.

There is such a thing as sex addiction. Ask Russel Brand.
