A paraphilia used to be categorized as a "Sexual Deviation". Some of the -philia's listed here might be of such nature, but most of them are merely more or less odd points of sexual arousal, or "Sexual arousal in response to unusual stimuli"

The word:

para-: a word prefix that means beside, near, beyond, aside, amiss, and sometimes implying alteration or modification (stolen from the "para-" w/u)
-philia: a word suffix meaning love, or erotic / sexual love of a person, thing, or activity. from Greek: philos, which means loving

Alphabetized and short explanations added. (if you have additions, please /msg me!)
