  16. The Center for Sex Offender Managementís Glossary of Terms Used in the Management and Treatment of Sexual Offenders defines the term grooming as: "The process of manipulation often utilized by child molesters, intended to reduce a victimís or potential victimís resistance to sexual abuse. Typical grooming activities include gaining the childís trust or gradually escalating boundary violations of the childís body in order to desensitize the victim to further abuse."

  17. The CSOM Glossary defines exhibitionism as "exposing one's genitalia to others for purposes of sexual arousal" and voyeurism as "observing unsuspecting individuals, usually strangers, who are naked, in the act of dressing or undressing, or engaging in sexual activities." Both are listed under "Paraphilias."
