Can you get rid of a paraphilia, an unwanted sexual urge in yourself?

Answer:

Whether those with 'non-average' sexual fantasies and behavior will ever be 'average' varies. Depending on how much patients are distressed and want to work on their complaints, the treatment can make a change. This often means that patients should learn to accept or learn how to deal with their complaints. Those with a great need to show the naked body to unsuspecting people may be helped by getting in contact with fellow-sufferers who accept this behavior. Talking about these feelings with people who recognize this can be a great relief. In many countries there are organisations which can help, for example in the Netherlands "The Dutch Association for Sexual Reformation" ("NVSH") is an association that helps with such contacts.
