Abstract
Zoophilia is a paraphilia through which the perpetrator has sexual pleasure of having sex with animals. Most countries have laws against this practice. Zoophilia can be classified in several ways according to the criteria chosen by the author. In principle, sexual contact between humans and animals has a lot of names such as zoophilia, bestiality and zooerasty.
These terms continue to be used in different ways by different authors, usually creating acertain amount of confusion. Someone suggested that a mathematical classification of zoophilia, which could group all the nuances of zoophilia into different numerical classes, could be a way to put an end to this confusion. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is clinically defined by specific symptoms such as bradykinesia, muscle rigidity, postural instability and resting tremor. The diagnosis is based on the presence of these symptoms and an appropriate response to treatment with Levodopa. However, non-motor symptoms, including sexual dysfunction, are common and least recognized in PD patients. Zoophilia is an aberrant sexual behavior that can be found in Parkinson’s disease. In this study, a clinical picture of this
sexual perversion is described and the possible causal relationship between this impulsive disorder and Parkinson’s disease therapy is discussed.
