What We Need To Know About Sexual Fantasies and Sexual Offending

Hosted by: David Prescott
Guest Speaker: Christian Joyal

Recorded on: Thursday, May 19, 2022


Sexual wishes, interests, and fantasies are different in important ways. For example, men’s fantasies are often more closely tied to their wishes than women. Research suggests that the diversity of fantasies, more than their content, contributes to a healthy sex life. Interestingly, men who have sexually abused others often have a narrower range of fantasies, but these fantasies are not always different from men who are not known to have abused.

Christian Joyal, along with his colleagues, has studied fantasies over the course of many years and has many important insights to share about his findings. Christian Joyal is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. He earned his Doctorate in Neuropsychology from the Université de Montréal. His research interests include neuropsychology, neuroimagery, sexuality, sexual deviance, and pedophilia.
