Unlike exhibitionism where the person intentionally exposes their genitals to an unsuspecting stranger, in this paraphilia the person creates situations in which other people could see them in the nude if the person wanted to. For example, it would be like leaving your curtains open and walking around the house naked in hopes that someone would peep in the windows. It is the thought that someone may be watching that is sexually arousing.

In my humble opinion, more young lesbian couples in the building directly across the alley way from my appartment need to be afflicted with this.
autagonistophilia: a paraphilia of the solicitational/allurative type in which sexuoerotic arousal and facilitation or attainment of orgasm are responsive to and contingent on being observed or being on stage or on camera [from Greek, autos, self + agonistes, principal dramatic actor + -philia]. The reciprocal paraphilic condition is scoptophilia, also called mixoscopia. See also troilism?
