English term or phrase: Guilty Pleasures
Hey everybody. Anybody have any suggestion how to translate the phrase "guilty pleasures" into Arabic? A guilty pleasure, of course, is "something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The "guilt" involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one's lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes. Fashion, music, and junk food can be examples of guilty pleasures".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
