Exhibitionism often Linked to Pedophilia and Other Paraphilias

Studies show that people with one paraphilia, like pedophilia, often have more, especially paraphilias like exhibitionism and voyeurism.  Two news stories today bear out that truth.

In Quakertown, Pennsylvania, Frederick L. Chew Jr., 48, was caught touching himself innapropriately in a park.  He is the third conviction of such activity this year.  Chew, however, had a pornographic photo of a child on his person.  Subsequent search of his residence turned up child pornography on his computers and storage devices.

In Farmington, Maine, Keith Nadeau, already on bail for a child pornography charge, was accused of exposing himself to a teenage boy.  His bail has been revoked.
