Abstract: Voyeuristic disorder is defined as a condition in which a person experiences persistent (at least 6 months), recurrent, and intense sexual arousal from observing an unsuspecting person who is naked, disrobing, or engaging in sexual activity, as manifested by fantasies, urges, or behaviors. The prevalence of true voyeuristic disorder is estimated to be as high as 12% in men and 4% in women. This chapter discusses the Fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and International Classification of Diseases diagnostic criteria for voyeuristic disorder, in addition to its diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. The recent literature on these topics is reviewed.
