Question(s): 
Written by: Wendy Moelker, psychologist in charge of Emergis, Goes, the Netherlands.
First version: 22 Jul 2008.
Latest revision: 26 Aug 2008.

Describe paraphilia variants of the average sexual preference.

Answer:

A paraphilia is a recurring sexually exciting fantasy, impulse or behavior related to non-human objects e.g things, fabrics, designs, the suffering or humiliation of oneself or the partner, children or other non-consenting persons. So basically it is getting aroused by things that wouldn't arouse the average person. You have a paraphilia when you have these thoughts, behaviours and impulses for at least 6 months and they are distressing for yourself or others. We distinguish between fetishism, frotteurism, pedophilia, sexual masochism, sexual sadism, transvestitism fetishism, voyeurism, exhibitionism and the group of unspecified paraphilias.
