Answer:

Answer:

Paraphilia involves indulging in sexual behavior that deviate from normal and safe sexual practices. They can involve intense psychological disorders that can affect individuals severely. The theories that explain paraphilia include biological theory, psychoanalytical theory, developmental theory, behavioral theories, and sociological theories.
As paraphilia is a complex condition, each of the theories contributes to explain various aspects of the condition. However, the psychoanalytic theory seems to best explain the development of paraphilia. This is due to the condition having a strong psychological cause/influence.

Hence, she should not be stopped from her behavior as it is normal and safe for her.
