Paraphilia

Paraphilia Not one of the favored terms around Babeland.  This medical term refers to any of a group of psychosexual “disorders” characterized by sexual fantasies, feelings, or activities involving a nonhuman object, a nonconsenting partner, or pain or humiliation of oneself or one's partner. Also called sexual deviation. We choose to focus on the ways in which any consensual sex act is good and healthy, while medical and psychological history has tended to judge any non-normative acts harshly.
