Definition - What does Exhibitionist mean?

An exhibitionist is a person who experiences an extreme compulsion to expose themselves in public. This usually involves private body parts, such as the penis, vagina, buttocks, and breasts.

Kinkly explains 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.
