Statistics on Paraphilias
The ratio of incidence of paraphiliacs in men to women is 1:20
25% of paraphiliacs who were convicted of pedophilia resume their behavior a few years after their release from prison.
Paraphiliacs victimizing boys are twice as likely to repeat their behavior as those who victimize girls.
86% of paraphiliacs have a history of being convicted for non-sexual offenses.
92% of paraphiliacs convicted for sexual abuse in children have a history of at least 1 non-sexual offense.
Only 5% of paraphiliacs meet the formal diagnostic criteria for multiple paraphilias other than pedophilia.
