Option A: Paraphilia is a condition involving sex fetishes where sexual arousal and gratification depend on fantasizing about, and engaging in, sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. Describe the symptoms of three different forms of paraphilia. What do all paraphilias have in common? Based on research, why do researchers suggest one’s gender and/or culture may influence this disorder?
