A paraphilia is an emotional disorder in which a person's sexual arousal and gratification depends on fantasizing about sexual activities and engaging in sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. The patient has fantasies, urges, behaviors that is persistent, intense, and occur over a period of at least six months. This problem causes distress and interferes in patient's day to day life. The behavior involves inanimate objects, children or nonconsenting adults and leads to suffering or humiliation for the patient. There could be sexual arousals to atypical objects, situations and targets like corpses and animals too. They have potential to harm others, too.

The word paraphilic is derived from para which means around or beside and philia means love.


Paraphilias is a disorder mostly diagnosed in men during adolescence and it reduces as the individual ages. Most people who develop a paraphilia begin having fantasies about it before they are 13 years old.
