    Abstract
    Dyspareunia is a genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. The factors involved can be physical or psychological. Women with dyspareunia may complain of a well-defined and localized pain or they may express a general disinterest in and dissatisfaction with intercourse that results from the associated discomfort. Although dyspareunia is presentin both sexes, it is far more common in women, with the pain initiating in several areas, from vulvar surfaces to deep pelvic structures. Worldwide prevalence of dyspareunia in women is 15% and can be maintained depending on partner, stimulation, etc. or regardless partner, stimulation, etc. The disorder may emerge from the beginning of the sexual life or begin after a period of relatively normal sexual function.

    Abstract
    Fetishism, as a technical descriptor of atypical sexual behavior, was noted in the writings of the well-known nineteenth century French psychologist Alfred Binet (1857–1911) (Binet, 1887) as well as prominent European sexologists Richard von Krafft-Ebing (1840–1902) (Krafft-Ebing, 1886), Havelock Ellis (1859–1939) (Ellis, 1906), and Magnus Hirschfeld (1868– 1935) (Hirschfeld, 1956). In their seminal writings, all of the afore mentioned sexologists used the terms “fetish” and “fetishism” to specifically describe an intense eroticization of either non-living objects and/or specific body parts that were symbolically associated with a person. Fetishes could be non clinical manifestations of a normal spectrum of eroticization or clinical disorders causing significant interpersonal difficulties. Ellis (1906) observed that body secretions or body products could also become fetishistic expressions of “erotic symbolism”. Freud (1928) considered both body parts (e.g., the foot) or objects associated with the body (e.g., shoes) as fetish objects. For the purposes of this review, a “broader” historically based core definition for Fetishism will include intense and recurrent sexual arousal to: non-living objects, an exclusive focus on body parts or body products.

It generates mental discomfort and sexual involvement absence up to couple issue. DSM V indexes the disease as „Other specific and non-specific disorders”. Somatic examination of individuals with this disorder doesn’t usually prove genital abnormalities. Repeated experience of genital pain during sexual intercourse may result in the avoidance of sexual experience, breaking existing sexual relationships or limiting the development of new sexual intercourses. Worldwide prevalence of dyspareunia in men is 5%. The disorder may emerge from the beginning of the sexual life or begin after a
    period of relatively normal sexual function.

    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.

    Abstract
    Hypoactive sexual desire disorder in men may occur in the context of poor sexual functioning, secondary to sexual dysfunction or a state of sexual dissatisfaction, or may may correspond to poor functioning of the couple. Thus, these multiple factors can generate a hypoactive sexual desire issue. The disorder of desire may also mean cognitions and / or persistently or recurrently reduced(absent) sexual/ erotic fantasies. Worldwide prevalence of sexual desire disorder in men is occasionally 6% for those 8-24 years old; significantly 41% for those 66-74 years old, and persistently 1,8% for those 16-44 years old. The disorder may emerge from the beginning of the sexual life or begin after a period of relatively normal sexual function.

    Abstract
    Sexual deviance is in some way a socially constructed phenomenon that shifts over time with public opinion. The various forms of sexual deviancy are grouped and defined utilizing the DSM-IV descriptions (American Psychitric Association, 1994), because this clasification it is the most frequently used in forensic settings. Adult sexual assault is an essential focus of forensic psychology, variously diagnosed as sexual sadism, paraphilia NOS (not otherwise specified), or undiagnosed. Other forms of sexual deviance presented here include voyeurism, exhibitionism, frotteurism, sexual sadism, rape and pedophilia. Each category is briefly
    explored through its etiology, course, epidemiology, assessment and treatment (Sbraga, 2004). Sexual sadism is said to be a disorder in which sexual satisfaction is reached and causing another suffering, psysical or mental pain through humiliation. In this article, its about addressing some theoretical aspects regarding the sexual deviance, but also the exemplification of a parafilic category, namely sexual sadism.
