Health Hazards

Almost all sexually deviant people can harm themselves or others physically or psychologically. At a milder level foot fetishes and shoe fetishes can cause severe oral and genital infections if the body parts and objects involved are not thoroughly cleaned before use.

Hazards of Oral Sex: Many people view oral sex as a generally safe practice that puts off the penile-vaginal intercourse, thereby avoiding an unplanned pregnancy— especially teen pregnancy. Recent researches have shown that oral sex (fellatio, i.e. oral- penile contact) can be associated with non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU) in heterosexual and homosexual men through oral bacteria or other oral factors that can trigger the disease. Research also suggests that HIV may be transmitted during oral sex to the receptive partner when the virus makes contact with mucous membrane tissues in the mouth.

According to medical experts anal intercourse is the riskiest of all sexual behaviors associated with HIV/AIDS transmission.

Autoerotic asphyxia has resulted in many deaths due to asphyxiation when the constricting ropes were not released soon enough to prevent strangulation.

Sadomasochistic sexual practices can be extremely dangerous and can even prove fatal if there is no proper co-ordination between the participants. In cases of sexual victimization BDSM practices that involve sexual abuse, sexual assault, bondage, insult and inflicting physical and mental pain can be a traumatic experience for an unwilling participant in the sexual act.

Experts on criminal pathology have observed that people with necrophilia preferences (sexually aroused by dead bodies) have murdered people in order to get a corpse for sexual intercourse. A case in point is Jeffrey Dahmer, the notorious serial killer of Milwaukee, US, who was initially convicted as a sex offender for exhibitionism and served short jail terms and later went on to lure and murder 17 young men between 1987 and 1991. The crimes were particularly gruesome because forensic experts detected the involvement of rape, torture, necrophilia, dismemberment and cannibalism in all the murders.

Physical symptoms like nausea, headaches, gastrointestinal difficulties, sleep disorders, genital injuries are usually manifest in rape victims. In addition, rape victims suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that is manifested by symptoms such as nightmares, anxiety, severe depression, and can even affect their sexual life in the following years. Supportive counseling can help ease the trauma suffered by rape victims.

Child sexual abuse prompted by pedophilia can be a traumatic experience for the child. It can be emotionally damaging for the victim and can result in long-term negative consequences such as confusion, disorientation, disruption of regular sexual development, low self esteem, and difficulty in having a fulfilling sexual and emotional relationship in adult years.

I'm a divorced male in my early 50s. I was faithful to my wife for the 25 years married. She always rejected my romantic advances so I became accustomed to masturbating. My fantasies varied over the years during masturbation and my post divorce real life sexual encounters have been receiving meaningless anonymous oral sex from women and men. It's the only thing that seems to stimulate me to orgasm. Recently, I met the most beautiful, smart, sexy woman and I love her but she does not stimulate me enough to orgasm. I now realize I have completely disassociated sex and love. This is my problem to fix but it certainly affects her. I have stopped receiving anonymous sex but I still masturbate while thinking about it. Can anyone with medical or behavioral knowledge please suggest how I can get back to associating love and intimacy with exciting sex? She is starting to ask, "what's wrong?" and I don't know how to explain it. I really love this woman!

If your arousal is based on the anonymity, you will probably have to continue what you're doing and masturbate to your fantasy. If your arousal is based on oral pleasure, you will need too tell her "what's wrong" and trust that she cares enough about you to open up to the idea. Either way it will take time and either reconditioning or being satisfied with your masturbatory sessions and good lovemaking with someone you care for.


I have problems with both frotteurism and fetishism. The impulses are totally out of my control and despite my concience objections and strong will to refrain it is almost like I am posessed and can only stand by and watch. The frotterurism is weird to, I have an impulse to grasp a woman's skirt hem between my fingers without her noticing. I do this in bars and crowed malls mostly. The fetishism is the obsession with womens undergarments from the act of shopping for them to wearing them and filtching them out of my friends and neighbors laundry hampers. I really want to get over this stuff. Chronic mastubation is also a problem...definately associated sex addition from an early age. Never been sexually abused.....but started chronic masturbation very early....child hood considered abusive because very strict parenting causing daily fear and stress...neighborhood bullying also probmatic...and started sexual activity with partners late in life, 19.


i was at Kmart one day and i saw this guy walk up next to a lady with a short skirt he bends down to pretend to look at a dvd,he then picks up the dvd lifts up his shirt from his side and rubs his lower back or waste on her leg, she did not no it was deliberate he said sorry she said ''oh thats ok''he got up and walked away. i also have seen him do it in other stores same thing to women with short skirts

Pleaew list other nonj-coercive paraphilias besides coprophilia, urophilia, Klismaphilia,transvestic fertishism and S and M. Seeking background for a presentation

I once saw a middle aged Polish immigrant guy grab a young African American woman's butt on the downtown 1 train just north of 59th st - she whipped out her xacto knife from the sleeve of her jacket with ninja-like speed and, in less than a second the perverted guy was crying out in pain and bewilderment as his blood splattered the subway car's floor. My suggestion is that if you see this use your cellphone and snap a picture, even if you don't get the act, you can follow this guy around until you can get a good shot and then take the time to do a report with Metro Police. Two separate reports with the same photo, has the tendency to make the hunter the hunted.
