    4. Safe Environment Weekly News: Undercover as an abuser

    Paraphilia is a psychosexual disorder and is not in and of itself a type of child sexual abuse or sexual exploitation. This disorder may or may not involve any type of criminal activity. Some individuals suffering from paraphilia solely engage in fantasy. While very alarming to the public, such fantasies may be legal under our laws, as explained further below. Others having this disorder will act out on their fantasies and sexually abuse a child or multiple children, which is illegal. Please click the link to read the article.
