Abstract

This is the Advisor's report on Hypoxyphilia, as it is currently called in DSM-IV, submitted at the request of the DSM-5 Paraphilias Subworkgroup of the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders Workgroup. The background literature is reviewed together with information from the author's recent and as yet unpublished research derived from an internet survey of more than 100 living practitioners of this paraphilic activity. It is recommended that the term "asphyiophilia," already used in the literature, is preferable as there is little to indicate that the effects of oxygen deprivation per se are the primary motive for the behavior; rather, it is sexual arousal to restriction of breathing. It is properly regarded as a severe and potentially dangerous manifestation of Sexual Masochism which can result in physical harm or death and therefore should be identified as such, perhaps as a specifier. However, there is no good reason to identify it as a separate paraphilia though it should be named in the DSM-5 text as it is a well-recognized and unusual mode of death. Less severe forms of Sexual Masochism which do not threaten life or otherwise cause serious physical harm should not be regarded as mental disorders.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 10. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 September 2013.
All research outputs
#395,660
of 4,507,280 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Sexual Behavior
#302
of 1,377 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#6,360
of 58,096 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Sexual Behavior
#3
of 25 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,280 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 91st percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,377 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.5. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 58,096 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 25 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
