More About Exhibitionism
Exhibitionism is a fairly broad term as it includes everything from sexual acts performed in public to exposing oneself or another in public. Some people enjoy exposing themselves in public because of the shock value. This category might include people who enjoy acts such as streaking. Others enjoy the possibility of being seen performing a sexual act in a public place, but do not necessarily wish to be seen. Exhibitionism can be divided into two types, namely non-threatening and threatening, or what is referred to as indecent exposure.
