More About Exhibitionist
Being an exhibitionist means having a psychological disorder that is criminalized in most societies. It is often referred to as “indecent exposure” in law books. A class of exhibitionists, called exhibitionistic criminals, is the most dangerous kind as they may progress from indecent exposure to graver crimes, such as rape and harassment. It is ideal to address exhibitionist tendencies through psychiatric intervention if the tendencies begin to interfere with your day to day life.
