Exhibitionism Treatment in NYC

Exhibitionism Counseling

I have helped many clients who’ve engaged in exhibitionism. I help persons with exhibitionism see what is real, and what is their disorder talking, and what specific things they can change to increase their safety from this very risky and self destructive behavior.

Exhibitionism (also called indecent exposure and exposing one’s person) is the act of exposing ones breasts or genitals to an unwilling person for your sexual satisfaction.

This unusual behavior is created by a “exhibitionistic disorder”, one that affects the client’s thinking in sometimes dramatic ways. Persons with this disorder do not see the negative and distressing experience they’re creating for victims, or their own legal jeopardy. Exhibitionists may believe their victim may want to have sexual intercourse with them, be impressed, or reciprocate such a display.

Exhibitionism Treatment

Help with Modern Exhibitionism

The latest version of exhibitionism, done electronically via text and messenger services, has grown in popularity. It is a form of exhibitionism often seen in the workplace and schools. Like in person, an exhibitionistic person can expose themselves to one person or literally thousands.

Potentially overlapping with pornography addiction, sometimes exhibitionistic-specific porn plays a role in the offender having a very distorted opinion of what will happen after they expose themselves to a victim. In exhibitionistic pornography, victims do not mind this behavior, or even are sexually aroused by a person doing this to them. This material distorts one’s thinking and makes the exhibitionistic person more likely to act out.

The Dangers of Exhibitionism

Obviously the exhibitionist will be in a legally dangerous position doing this to an unwilling victim, what may be less obvious is the exhibitionist can be in a physically dangerous position engaging in these behaviors. I have had clients who were physically assaulted following their behavior. Their disorder creates an extreme focus on the victim, to the degree the exhibitionist may not see clearly visible nearby onlookers, who may then apply vigilantism to the exhibitionist.
