This definition is accepted by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. These sexual fantasies may be practiced by only one person in the society or by many. Initially, these paraphilic practices are discouraged by the society but the opinion changes after a certain period of time and these practices get accepted as it happened in the case of Homosexuality and Bisexuality.
