... sexual exhibitionism in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, quezon city, manila)

Mr. Ben Tulfo sent over his Bitag crew for an interview on the sexual disorder known as exhibitionism.

Exhibitionism, also known as exhibitionistic disorder, is characterized by these two criteria:

(1) Over a period of at least 6 months, there should be recurrent and intense sexual fantasies, sexual urges,or sexual behaviors involving the exposure of one’s genitals to an unsuspecting stranger.

(2) The person is bothered or negatively affected by the sexual fantasies, urges, or behaviors OR the person has actually exposed the genitals to 3 or more unsuspecting strangers on 3 separate occasions.

Of course, with today's high technology, exhibitionism can now be done through electronic means such as computers and cellphones. 

Treatment is challenging and usually entails medications (hormone pills and/or anti-depressants) and psychotherapy.
