Paraphilia and its Psychological Impact

Sexologist, Delhi
Paraphilia and its Psychological Impact

Compelling urge to get physical with your partner that is an aberration from what is expected of a person, that is to say usual genital arousal for a phenotypically normal, physically of age and consenting human counterpart, is referred to as Paraphilia or sexual perversion. This condition lives up to the standards of a disabling problem when it hampers the overall health of a person, leads to psychological setback or victimization of another individual (read more for healthy sexual life).
Psychological impacts of going through such a condition

1. The perpetrator of the variation may or may not see this as a condition: The person suffering from this condition may or may not treat it as a problem. In both ways, it is harmful. Knowing it as a problem and not seeking treatment or assistance can be harmful for oneself and others. Not realizing that you are subject to a serious sexual condition might propel you to commit wrong to non- consensual partners while being confident about your ways.
2. Social ostracization kills them: Coming in the open with a sexual fantasy that is not acceptable to the society can leave you with varied reactions. People might be incited to attack you for being unusual or they might isolate you. The latter is a probable outcome. Rarely does society guide you towards betterment in such cases. Social ostracization can result in deep rooted hatred for the world at large. 
3. Perpetual humiliation can push them more into Paraphilia: Humiliation for being different from the rest can make a person feel shame. Shame and constant regret cannot help an instance of sexual perversion. It can make a man or woman more obstinate. In such a situation a person would strongly cling to his or her condition feeling extremely dejected.

4. 'To be or not to be' haunts people suffering from Paraphilia: Many times a sufferer is not able to understand what is wrong in having objectionable sexual behavioral tendencies and fantasies. As long as your fantasies are limited to your own mental domain or are performed on a consensual partner, there are no complications. The minute an obnoxious sexual urge is performed leading to personal or public harm, a threatening hitch arises. 

5. Problems in expressing oneself can make a person suicidal: To adhere to societal norms a person might keep his desires on a leash. This kind of compromising over a long span of time will make a person depressive and may also prompt him to commit suicide.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Hello sir, Please advice which protein would be best for me because I am doing workout, so suggest me.

M.Sc - Food & Nutrition, PG Diploma In Diabetes Education
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Gurgaon
your current weight is 60 kg and if you are working out , still requirement of protein is 1.5gm / kg body weight . In your case , total of 90 gm is enough. More then this, will strain your digestive system specially your kidney. You can fulfill this natuarally with soya milk, sprouts, Tofu, Paneer, quinoa, badam milk, eggs. Their bio availability is high so they are safe to use in ,on term too. Tip: To improve muscles, take protein source after 1/2 an hour of work out. Change your pattern of workout in every q0 to 14 days.

After sex why is there a liquid in my underwear. Is it like the sperm is coming out? I want to get pregnant. So I don't want the sperm to come out but I think it slips out immediately after sex. How to avoid it?

This is only fluid (seminal, semen) that remained in vaginal cavity. Sperms are in millions in the semen and to get pregnant only one sperm is efficient.

Spinach is a rich source of vitamins K, A and C. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health; vitamin A boosts vision and the immune system and vitamin C helps heal wounds and maintain strong bones and teeth. Spinach also contains folic acid, manganese, zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron. In fact, there are few foods that offer a more powerful combination of vitamins and minerals.
