Definition - What does Scoptophilia mean?

Scoptophilia is a sexual paraphilia that involves sexual arousal from looking or viewing naked bodies, sexual acts, erotic photos, and any other sexual item or act. This is also referred to as voyeurism.

Kinkly explains Scoptophilia

Individuals that experience scoptophilia often experience more sexual arousal and satisfaction from watching sexual acts between other people, or by viewing erotic photos and pornographic videos. Some individuals will not only prefer to watch, but will exclusively watch these types of things to achieve a sexual satisfaction. The arousal may be dependent on secrecy of viewing, or not.
