547 Reasons Not to Study Psychology

For the last month or so, I have been researching for a presentation on paraphilias that a partner and I are doing for Abnormal Psychology. Today, my focus was almost solely on pedophilia, an extremely disturbing topic at best. Of the eight DSM-recognized paraphilias, pedophilia has had by far the most research done. After devouring several books on the subject, I turned to the internet to look for websites for support groups for each of the paraphilias. While I was searching, I found several allusions to an APA list of 547 established paraphilias. I looked all over the APA website, but couldn't find the list, which would have been extremely useful to the project, so I wrote to the APA, asking whether or not the list exists, and if so, could I somehow obtain a copy. I'll post their response if I ever get it. Hopefully they respond quickly; this project is due on November 19th.

And now, because I don't want to think about pedophiles anymore, here is a completely unrelated list.
