ABSTRACT
The article discusses several studies that focuses on the understanding of bestiality and zoophilia as a psychological-sexual disorder that has been in existent throughout the history of man. Bestiality is a sexual behavior reflecting human sexual relationship with animals, while zoophiles are individuals who commit relationship with animals and claim it to be more than sexual. One of the focus of the article is on the research conducted by Hani Miletski on 93 individuals that were made to answer a 23-page questionnaire consisting of 350 items relating to their practice of bestiality. Miletski's study yielded groundbreaking results that were not at all reflected in previous studies conducted about the sexual behavior.
