We have such sights to show you! ~Pinhead in Hellraiser
I'm going out on a limb here when I say that most of you probably have a strong voyeuristic streak! Simply put, the term comes from the French voyeur , "one who looks." So many elements of sex are highly visual that it's no surprise we find watching erotic. Of course, part of what makes voyeurism so exciting is its illicit nature ... the idea that those we view are unaware of our presence, that we are somehow peeking behind the curtains to see a reality usually hidden in the privacy of shadows.

So what is so very exciting about watching someone's passions from the safety of our own shadows? Perhaps it has something to do with our own distance ... there is nothing required of us by the experience, no demands from a partner, no judgement of our desires. We need be concerned only with our own pleasure as we peer into the interactions of others. I believe the other major appeal for the voyeur is the honesty of what we see. In almost all interactions with others, we know that on some level they are wearing masks ... they show us what they want us to see. As a voyeur, you get to glimpse how someone is in unguarded, wholly vulnerable moments. Many "swingers" delight in the perspective they gain by observing their partner in flagrante delicto with someone else. In the abandon of orgasm, we lose control and all artifice falls away. Watching someone in this very raw and primal state is incredibly exciting!
