From A World of Sex
Jump to: navigation, search

Paraphilias come in many shapes and sizes, and more are being "discovered" all the time. Many of these paraphilas (also known as fetishes) have online communities and are catered for with pornography, web cam shows and even escort services. Many of these are harmless (although they may be seen as "weird") but some of them require suffering on the part of an animal or another human being, and more often than not these paraphilias are illegal.
