Content: Several studies among sexual offenders have consistently shown that paraphilic interests are significant risk factors for criminal behavior. But is this also the case for the general population? In other words, do paraphilic interests predict criminal behavior among people from the general population? What are the implications of paraphilic fantasies for one’s sexual behavior? These questions have been of particular interest to Cristian Joyal, Professor of Psychology from Canada, who has conducted a series of studies to better understand the implications of sexual fantasies for sexual behavior. Inspired by his recent study* on the concordance and discordance between paraphilic interests and behaviors, we asked Prof. Joyal to share the most clinically significant research findings with us. Prof. Joyal goes well beyond the specific paper and walks us through the research questions that gradually built what is known today. He synthesizes years of research results and explains why it is important to understand the implications of sexual fantasies, how they have been studied, and what findings are the most important. At the end of this stimulating talk, Prof Joyal presents the specific factors that sexologists should look out for when a client has paraphilic fantasies because these have been associated with a higher risk for criminal behavior. Prof. Joyal’s insights and understanding of the current data on sexual fantasies are stimulating and highly significant for clinical practice.
