  Part 1 - Context - Voyeurism as a Criminal Offence: A Consultation Paper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The diagnostic criteria for voyeurism are: (a), recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges or behaviours involving voyeuristic activity, and (b), the fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviours cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning… Many individuals include voyeuristic fantasy or behaviour in a repertoire of sexual fantasies.

 Voyeurism: A stolen glance at film and photography throughout the last century
Voyeurism can be defined in many ways and if you were to extract the main principals out from it you would be left with a definition that states voyeurism is "To gain pleasure from looking, unbeknown to the subject".
A voyeur watches without consent from his subject although pleasure is still gained from watching with consent, which is to say he/she has the permission to watch but still watches unbeknown to the subject, for example at a strip club or a cinema.
Voyeurism has much diversity, especially in the mass media and through modern society, from the eighteen hundreds to the present day, from pornography to soap opera; there are many categories to delve into and many questions to be raised.

 Free Essay Voyeurism In Hitchcock
Hitchcock uses voyeurism as a main theme in both of these masterpieces, and the voyeurism is connected in many surprising ways: it is evident in the careers of the male voyeurs, causes serious damage to their relationships, and changes from unauthorized looking into neighborliness.
A photographer is the epitome of a voyeur, as in the course of the job it is routine to peer into the life of something, whether it is a plant, an animal, or a person.
