Walking, perhaps crawling, on the wild side

  • A nicer name
  • A term used to describe uncommon types of sexual expression
what s atypical
What’s Atypical?
  • Even though these behaviors are unusual, many of us, at some point in our lives, may recognize some tiny urge in ourselves that falls off the straight and narrow
is this mostly a guy thing
Is this mostly a guy thing?
  • Not necessarily
  • Males are far more likely to be apprehended and prosecuted, but …
  • Is it because we’re just so much more complex?
if you like you ll probably enjoy
If you like … you’ll probably enjoy ….
  • These behaviors tend to cluster, people usually can’t stop at just one
  • Some have four or more
  • Inhibitions lowered?
noncoercive paraphilias
Noncoercive Paraphilias
  • Many just involve I person, or another consenting adult
  • Typically benign
  • But certainly have the potential to pose distress for others
  • Obtaining sexual excitement primarily or exclusively from an inanimate object or a particular part of the body
  • Not just aroused or attracted by lingerie, legs, knee caps, etc.
  • Only when focused, to the exclusion of all else
fetishes what
Fetishes - What?
  • Often common objects – black mesh stockings, shoes, boots, hair, leather, silk, latex, crushed wheat thins, etc
  • Ballooners
fetishes why
Fetishes – Why?
  • Somehow these items get inserted into a fantasy sequence ending in orgasm
  • Classical Conditioning – object (initially neutral) becomes a powerful conditioned stimulus after being consistently paired with the unconditioned stimulus of sex (masturbation) followed by the unconditioned response of orgasm
  • Operant conditioning – orgasm as a reinforcer
  • Richman – (1966)
  • Developed fetishes with boots, even generalized to other footwear
autoerotic asphyxia
Autoerotic Asphyxia
  • Enhancing sexual excitement and orgasm by pressure-induced oxygen deprivation
  • Rare but life-threatening
  • Almost exclusively male
  • Pressure via chain, belt, rope noose
  • Alone or in groups
Why ?
  • They aren’t talking
  • Must enhance excitement and orgasm
  • Elaborate techniques for escape sometimes fail
  • FBI estimates 1,000 deaths a year?!?

  • These can easily have negative impacts on targets
  • Often illegal
  • Worse yet, can lead to more serious offenses
  • a/k/a “indecent exposure” – baring your genitals to unwilling observers
  • Almost always a male exposing himself to a young or mature female
