Abstract

Antilibidinal medications can be used to reduce a sexual offender’s deviant sexual fantasies and arousal. We briefly review what these medications are and what effects they have, how commonly they are used or should be used, how effective they actually are, and finally in our clinical opinion which sex offenders would benefit from the taking these medications. We also raise briefly some of the ethical, legal, and medical implications of their use.
