  • Sexual activities harm or endanger the safety of the person or of others;
  • Inability to control or reduce sexual activities despite harm, danger, or negative consequences (e.g. to health, work, and other relationships);
  • Causes distress or significant functional impairment in important areas of life such as personal, family, social, education, and occupation.
