  • 1. Psychosexual Disorders: Paraphilias By: Neva Taylor
  • 2. Paraphilias
    • Used to be known as perversions; a.k.a. sexual deviation
    • “ Recurrent, intense sexual urges, fantasies, or behaviors that involve unusual objects, activities, or situations and cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning.” (Source 1: PDM)
  • 3. Exhibitionism
    • The recurrent urge or behavior to expose one’s genitals to an unsuspecting person. (Source 6)
    • This act is usually performed by a lonely, insecure male.
      • They seek sexual excitement through this.
    • There is no sexual contact involved.
  • 4. Fetishism
    • The use of non-sexual or nonliving objects or part of a person’s body to gain sexual excitement. (Source 6)
    • Examples of fetishes:
      • Body parts (Animate fetish)
      • Piercings
      • Fabric/Material/Clothing (Media fetish)
  • 5. Frotteurism
    • The recurrent urges or behavior of touching or rubbing against a non-consenting person. (Source 6)
    • The “frotteur” fantasizes about having an intimate relationship with the victim.
    • Makes a quick escape, because they realize that their actions are illegal.
  • 6. Masochism
    • The recurrent urge or behavior of wanting to be humiliated, beaten, bound, or otherwise made to suffer. (Source 6)
    • This includes use of:
      • Physical restraints with punishment, pain, humiliation, and degradation
      • Role playing (teacher/student; master/slave)
  • 7. Sadism
    • The recurrent urge or behavior involving acts in which the pain or humiliation of the victim is sexually exciting (Source 6)
    • Starts as obsessive thoughts and fantasies, but then it increases in severity over time.
    • Centers around domination and control.
      • Usually goes with masochism.
  • 8. Voyeurism
    • The recurrent urge or behavior to observe an unsuspecting person who is naked, disrobing or engaging in sexual activities, or may not be sexual in nature at all.
    • The observer has no intention of having contact with the “victim” at all.
      • May seek sexual satisfaction through masturbation.
  • 9. More Paraphilias
    • Chronophilias: infantophilia, pedophilia, and gerontophilia.
    • Others: telephone scatalogia, necrophilia, partualism, zoophilia, coprophilia, klismaphilia, and urophilia
