Who are exhibitionists and what do they want?

0 1 39
In life, many have encountered exhibitionists. Someone was "lucky" to survive a traumatic meeting in childhood, and someone crossed with a pervert in adulthood. This phenomenon can be treated differently, but the question is always relevant: why does a person need this?

Who are exhibitionists and what do they want?
The science of psychology says that exhibitionism is sexual deviation, paraphilia, which is characterized by a very strong desire to show their intimate places to outsiders, preferably to strangers. Most often, an exhibitionist acts in public places, since it is easier for him to realize his desire and to retire without problems.

The purpose of the exhibitionist is to shock the victim, her reaction - this is what they achieve with their simple manipulations. Do not confuse these guys with nudists - they do not experience sexual arousal and do not intentionally demonstrate their nudity, but are naked because of their beliefs.


If a girl is excited, demonstratively undressing in front of her boyfriend, then this is also not exhibitionism. Such a reaction is considered quite healthy and should not cause concern. But intentional sex in public, with the attention of random witnesses, is already an upset.

Can not be attributed to exhibitionists and striptease dancers, because they show themselves to an audience that not only wants to see their body, but also pays for it. In this case, there is no shocking effect, and it is just a matter of professional activity.

Exhibitionism is basically the prerogative of men. Anonymous surveys conducted in Sweden showed that at least once in their life, 4.1% of men and only 2.1% of women sinned this for the sake of sexual arousal. Men are also more often arrested for demonstrating genitals, as women are more likely to call the police when faced with this phenomenon.



Why do they need it?


The tendency to exhibitionism is rarely manifested in adulthood. Typically, the origins of this deviation are in youth or even in childhood. Psychologists say that most of these people first went "on the trail" at age 12, and already at 15 began to show themselves regularly.

As a rule, exhibitionists are closed and indecisive people who find it difficult to be in companies and difficult to make acquaintances. The vast majority of them have communication difficulties and are lonely. They switch to abnormal behavior due to the fact that they are not able to have normal sexual relations.

Having tried once and experienced sexual arousal, the exhibitionist reliably fixes in his mind the relationship between the demonstration of genitals and pleasure. After this, giving up an unhealthy addiction to such a person is not at all easy.


Researchers interviewed 180 exhibitionists to find out what they want to achieve with their not-so-normal behavior. Of these, 35.1% answered that they would like a stranger to have sexual intercourse with him, for 19.5% the reaction is not important at all, and 15.5% expect the victim to undress in front of them. 14.1% expect to see admiration, 11.9% want to see any reaction, and only 3.8% of exhibitionists want to see anger or disgust. Oddly enough, but only 0.5% called fear their desired reaction.

Types of Exhibitionism

Not necessarily attributes of this deviation are the coat and the park. The advent of the Internet has greatly expanded the possibilities of exhibitionists, allowing them to act more freely and not so shockingly. There are many ways to show yourself to people and see their reaction to this action.

In recent years, reflectoscopy is a very common way of demonstrating intimate parts of the body. In this case, a person photographs himself in various reflective surfaces. Proponents of this trend post photos on the Internet, hoping to see user reactions in the comments.


As examples of reflectivity, you can give photos of reflections of naked men and women on TV screens, on the shiny surfaces of teapots and even on forks and spoons. It all started with an attempt by one Australian to sell a teapot at an online auction. In the photo, its reflection on the surface of the household appliance was clearly visible, which caused a wave of disturbances and discussions on the network.

Among women, the so-called Anasirma is very popular - raising a skirt or dress in the absence of underwear. Of course, men are very rare.
