Voyeurism

One of the most confusing concepts in the study of sexual anomalies is seemingly the simplest one, voyeurism or peeping. In this act the male usually looks at a nude adult female or at heterosexual intercourse and in so doing masturbates to climax. This seems simple enough but often the climax or orgasm is not considered an essential part of the voyeurism. A more nebulous "erotic gratification" or general "satisfaction" is described and herein lies the confusion.
