Me too. Though usually I do eat the tiny scabs... I'm a freak and I pick at about any visible imperfection. My feet are peely and it's given me a lot to pick at lately... I'll also pick at pimples, blackheads and ingrown hairs on not only myself but hubby. Poor guy. I feel like there has to be a word for that...

I chew plastic and used to consume huge amounts of ice.

Unrelated to pica, I have an OBSESSION with blackheads, and not just my own. My poor boyfriend can attest to the fact that if I see a blackhead on his skin I'm going to remove it. We've actually gotten into arguments because I start to get twitchy and anxious if I see one on his skin and he doesn't want me touching it. I basically insist on it and it's really creepy and weird but I can't stop. My own skin on my face is damaged from me picking at and squeezing at blackheads too much. The pores on my nose are permanently enlarged from it. It's embarrassing.

I do it with ingrown hairs and pimples too, but blackheads are the most "satisfying" to me I guess? Ugh.

Ahhh Stephy! You're into some freaky stuff. I love it. I think I would vom if I ate scab. That's so much better than creating scabs to eat them though, that's like, self mutilation. Your list of stuff is crazy! Condoms!? Feces?! Why.

I have been craving ice water while pregnant... but I'm afraid of chipping teeth chewing it. I'm all about slushies!

This is creepy but when I was a kid and I got scrapes and cuts from playing all the time, I would suck my own blood. Just until it stopped bleeding... but I really liked the flavor.

This is TMI/NSFW/GROSS but I also really really like the flavor of um... Man juices. Lol! Only some though. Some guys taste awful bleh. My bf is the best, even though it weirds him out.

Weird him out? I think that's most mens dream. LOL

I think most smells like chlorine and numbs my tongue.

I creepily love popping things, infections, zits, anything. It's badly gratifying but I also get obsessive while doing them and catch myself not breathing and almost panicking if it's too frustrating to get a release from one.

Yeah.

I had never heard the term PICA so of course I googled.

Along with the definition on Wikipedia, they had a picture of the stomach contents of a PICA patient! It contained 1440 items that were not food! Lots of nails (actual metal nails, not finger nails) and buttons!

You can see it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gl...ch_Display.jpg

Anyway, I don't think I crave (to eat) anything without nutrients. I did use to be an avid nail biter, but I spat them out, never swallowed them.......I don't even do that anymore, I think it was more of a nervous action due to my childhood.

Adrianne that's exactly how I am. I seriously psych myself out over it and then I feel like a headcase but I CAN'T STOP.

I'm not sure why ice would be considered a non-food item...it's just water, but in crunchy form.

I chew ice and straws... but only while the straw is in my drink, I bite down on it and then suck through. idk why, I get less drink through it that way. lol.

Consumption of non-edible man made materials is not uncommon or totally widely heard or either. Sometimes it's a just a craving - some people really like the feel/texture/taste of it - even the sound it might make while chewing it up - everyone has their reasons. For body matter there are alot of theories out there, some say it is due to their body not producing enough of a particular enzyme/vitamin (like in dogs some say as well) so something in re-consuming bodily waste fulfills that internal/sub-atomic "craving" in spite of how...unsavory the materials to do so might be. But like how alot of people have fascinations or are less offended by their own body odor than they would be of others - I've sniffed my armpits and panties and my fingers after sticking them *ahem* down there. While the aromas are still unpleasant - they are interesting at the same time - and it's my personal theory that perhaps it's part of the fascination that drives those in question to consume their own various matters. *shrugs* just sayin'

Oh yeah - slurpees and blood are good too. I'll lick up any blood from a wound/cut/whatever. Mine's quite metallic/dry in taste.

I'm not big on man juice. A penis can be nice once in a while but the actual juice is bleh to me. It's ALWAYS tasted and smelled like pool water/bleach. Pineapple juice does NOT help. My own juice I will taste though and I'm fine with it but not an enthusiast. Not big on the sexual secretions, I'll stick to scabs, blood, foot skin, and pen ends thanks very much.
