Paraphilia (from Greek para παρά = beside and -philia φιλία = friendship, meaning love) describes the experience of intense sexual arousal to highly atypical objects, situations, or individuals.[1] Paraphilic behavior (such as pedophiliazoophiliasexual sadism, and exhibitionism) may be illegal in some jurisdictions, but may also be tolerated (such as transvestism)[citation needed]. No consensus has been found for any precise border between unusual personal sexual tastes and paraphilic ones. There is debate over which, if any, of the paraphilias should be listed in diagnostic manuals, such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or the International Classification of Diseases.

The number and taxonomy of paraphilias is under debate; one source lists as many as 549 paraphilias.[2] Several sub-classifications of the paraphilias have been proposed, and some argue that a fully dimensional, spectrum or complaint-oriented approach would better reflect the evidence.[3][4]
