Abstract
Sexual sadism is defined as intense and recurrent sexual arousal as a result of the physical or psychological suffering of a person who does not consent to such acts. In order to meet the SSD diagnostic criteria, the person concerned must have acted according to, or be strongly affected by, sadistic fantasies or impulses (DSM-V; APA, 2013). Although it is one of the paraphilia that has received the most interest in the scientific area, the disorder of sexual sadism is a controversial subject and an underdiagnosed paraphylic disorder.
