Exhibitionism is the exposure of one’s genitals to achieve sexual arousal or deriving satisfaction from being publicly observed during a sexual activity such as masturbation. People with this condition feel the need to shock or surprise their victims by suddenly showing their private body parts. For instance, an exhibitionist suddenly opens his coat to reveal his naked body to unsuspecting strangers in a park and expectantly waits for their shocked reactions. This is a form of paraphilia or conditions characterized by abnormal sexual desires.
