My first publication about the paraphilias

As long time readers know, in addition to talking about asexuality, in the past 9 months or so, I've also started blogging about DSM-5 and the "paraphilias." What I haven't told you is that my blogging activities are only a small part of the work I'm doing regarding these. I've also been doing some writing for academic journals because I think that's where the main arguments need to be made. The first of my publications to come out has now been published online.

Disregarding Science, Clinical Utility, and the DSM’s Definition of Mental Disorder: The Case of Exhibitionism, Voyeurism, and Frotteurism, a letter to the editor in Archives of Sexual Behavior, where the DSM-5 Paraphilias Subworkgroup's literature reviews were published and where the editor issued a call for commentary of these. So I commented.

But rest assured, the best is yet to come.

(p.s. For anyone wanting a copy who doesn't have free access to the journal, you can email the author requesting one.)
