This chapter discusses the phallometric test, a voluntary assessment that will be of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, and parole boards who will be called upon to judge the extent of rehabilitation of the inmate as well as their risk to reoffend. If the inmate does undertake the test and “deviant sexual arousal” is noted, then a variety of approaches are taken to treat this problem, including “orgasmic reconditioning, covert sensitization, thought stopping and other sexual arousal control techniques.” Changing masturbatory fantasies to involve only appropriate partners and contexts is one of these techniques, and existing fantasies are often the subject of much interrogation during group therapy sessions.

Keywords:   phallometric test, sexual arousal, orgasmic reconditioning, thought stopping, control techniques, masturbatory fantasies
