In this article, the first of a two-part series, the authors present reasons for considering the paraphilic and hypersexual disorders together and provide an overview of these disorders. The DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for paraphilias are reviewed, and proposed criteria for hypersexual disorders are presented. The question of whether the paraphilic and hypersexual disorders should be considered within the spectrum of obsessive-compulsive disorders is considered. The authors then review the… 
The role of testosterone in sexuality and paraphilia--a neurobiological approach. Part II: testosterone and paraphilia.
TLDR
From a neurobiological perspective an extended scientific proposal for design features to investigate the effects of antiandrogen treatment in large clinical trials is presented.
Hypersexual Disorder: A Proposed Diagnosis for DSM-V
  • M. Kafka
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Archives of sexual behavior
  • 2010
TLDR
Specific polythetic diagnostic criteria, as well as behavioral specifiers, are proposed, intended to integrate empirically based contributions from various putative pathophysiological perspectives, including dysregulation of sexual arousal and desire, sexual impulsivity, sexual addiction, and sexual compulsivity.
Hypersexuality: A Critical Review and Introduction to the “Sexhavior Cycle”
TLDR
The “sexhavior cycle of hypersexuality” is developed to potentially explain the neuropsychology and maintenance cycle ofhypersexuality and suggest that, for some hypersexual persons, high sexual arousal may temporarily and adversely impact cognitive processing and explain a repeated pattern of psychological distress when interpreting one’s sexual behavior.
Hypersexual behaviour, frotteurism and delusional jealousy in a young parkinsonian patient during dopaminergic therapy with pergolide: A rare case of iatrogenic paraphilia
TLDR
The case of a 51-year-old male PD patient who, after a few years of dopaminergic treatment with pergolide, developed a paraphilic disorder, consistent with DSM-IV TR diagnosis of frotteurism, and delusional jealousy is reported, providing evidence that these disorders are not typical of advanced PD.
Pharmacological treatment of patients with paraphilic disorders and risk of sexual offending: An international perspective
TLDR
Although pharmacological agents can be seen as an intrusion into a patients’ sexual self determination, results indicate that ethical and clinical standards are being met in the majority of cases and further promotion of current WFSBP treatment guidelines would help to standardise practice across North American and European countries.
Cognitive-behavioral treatment of the paraphilias.
  • M. Kaplan, R. Krueger
  • Psychology, Medicine
    The Israel journal of psychiatry and related sciences
  • 2012
TLDR
Although reports from individual programs and meta-analyses support its efficacy, overall, the strength of the evidence base supporting this therapy is weak and much more empirical research is needed.
Dealing with hypersexuality in geriatric care facilities : A literature review
TLDR
The findings on this study suggest that including sexuality education into the regular nursing curriculum rather than as an elective study will introduce all nurses early towards hypersexuality, and addressing inappropriate sexual behavior in a biopsychosocial approach gives better opportunities in devising a holistic care plan for nurses.
Paraphilic Thoughts, Behaviors and Sex Addiction in a Sample of Persons Who Use Drugs: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
The high prevalence of paraphilic thoughts/behaviors with or without sex addiction in persons who use drugs may be related to the experience of physical and emotional neglect during childhood and this possibility should routinely be investigated in clinical practice.
Sexual addiction or hypersexual disorder: different terms for the same problem? A review of the literature.
TLDR
A systematic review of the existing measures for sexual addiction found that people who were categorized as having a compulsive, impulsive, addictive sexual disorder or a hypersexual disorder reported having obsessive thoughts and behaviors as well as sexual fantasies.
General Information: History, Etiology and Theory (e.g., Courtship), Diagnosis, Comorbidity and Prevalence
TLDR
The descriptions of what the authors call paraphilias or paraphilic behaviors appear in various texts and pictorial art since the ancient times and a couple of the individual paraphilia names (sadism and masochism) came from the description in fiction literature.

The paraphilia-related disorders: an empirical investigation of nonparaphilic hypersexuality disorders in outpatient males.
TLDR
The data suggest that social disadvantage, as assessed in this sample, is associated with the cumulative incidence of SIDs but not necessarily with the diathesis to develop paraphilic disorders.
Neuropsychiatry of Hypersexuality
TLDR
These case studies demonstrate that a neurobiology of hypersexuality may prove of some heuristic value in the clinic, and provide evidence that different brain systems may play a role in this disorder.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in males with paraphilias and paraphilia-related disorders: a comorbidity study.
TLDR
Although depressive disorders were the most common Axis I diagnoses across groups, childhood ADHD was the only Axis I disorder statistically significantly associated with paraphilias, socially deviant and aggressive forms of sexual impulsivity.
Serotonergic medications for sexual obsessions, sexual addictions, and paraphilias.
TLDR
Paraphilias and related disorders may be less responsive than sexual obsessions or compulsions to serotonin reuptake blockers, suggesting they are on the impulsive rather than the compulsive end of the spectrum of obsessive compulsive disorders.
Preliminary observations of DSM-III-R axis I comorbidity in men with paraphilias and paraphilia-related disorders.
TLDR
There were no major differences in lifetime Axis I diagnoses to differentiate men with paraphilic disorders from those with paraphilia-related disorders suggesting that sexual impulsivity has diverse manifestations, which can include culturally "deviant" as well as "normative" behaviors.
A Monoamine Hypothesis for the Pathophysiology of Paraphilic Disorders
  • M. Kafka
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Archives of sexual behavior
  • 1997
TLDR
A monoamine pathophysiological hypothesis for paraphilias in males is based on the following data: the monoamines norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin are involved in the appetitive dimension of male sexual behavior in laboratory animals and pharmacological agents that ameliorate psychiatric disorders characterized by the aforementioned characteristics.
Disorders of sexual impulse control in neuropsychiatric conditions.
TLDR
A clinical algorithm for approaching and treating hypersexuality in individuals with neuropsychiatric disorders and its psychopharmacologic treatment in nonneuropsychiatric populations is presented.

Interest in the pharmacotherapeutic treatment of paraphilias is growing. Two classes of drugs have been tested: drugs that interfere with the normal production and action of androgens and
A comparison of treatment of paraphilias with three serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a retrospective study.
TLDR
A retrospective study evaluates and compares the effectiveness of three SSRIs in a group of paraphilics and found that the severity of fantasies decreased and that there were no significant differences in the reported efficacy between fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, and sertraline.
Sexual Disorders Not Otherwise Specified: Compulsive, Addictive, or Impulsive?
TLDR
It is suggested that the DSM-IV category of sexual disorders be modified to include explicitly diagnostic criteria for a disorder characterized by hypersexual symptoms involving patterns that fall outside of the current definition of paraphilia.
