Voyeurism is a form of sexual deviance that involves gaining sexual pleasure from observing others without their consent. This paper explores the prevalence of voyeurism in India and compares it to other countries across the world. Using a combination of primary and secondary research, this paper examines the social, cultural, and legal factors that contribute to voyeurism in India and other countries. The findings suggest that voyeurism is a widespread problem in India and that social norms and cultural attitudes towards sexuality play a significant role in the perpetuation of this behaviour. International comparisons reveal that voyeurism is not unique to India and that it is a problem in many other countries as well. However, the severity and prevalence of voyeurism vary across cultures and regions and are influenced by a variety of social and legal factors. The paper concludes by discussing the implications of these findings for policymakers, researchers, and practitioners working to address voyeurism and other forms of sexual deviance in India and beyond.
