Frotteuristic Disorder

Frotteuristic Disorder is a mental health condition. A paraphilia in which a person derives sexual pleasure or gratification by moving or rubbing himself, or his genitalia, against another non-consenting person, usually in an overly crowded elevator, bus, subway or other public place.  Frotteuristic Disorder generally occurs with men at any age, but is most often seen in young, seemingly shy males between the ages of 15 and 25. It has also been reported in older, reserved, and socially withdrawn men.

Other Paraphilic Disorders

Other co-existing conditions may include hypersexuality or other paraphilic disorders. Most commonly, voyeurism and exhibitionism, as well as nonsexual antisocial personality disorder, conduct disorder, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders.

Treatment Options

Treatment usually begins with psychotherapy, support groups, and antidepressants. If drugs are ineffective and the disorder is severe, drugs that reduce testosterone levels and thus reduce the sex drive may be used.
