What exactly is Voyeurism?

Briefing a little about Voyeurism (The crime for which Matthew Piell has been accused)

Voyeurism is defined as an interest in watching unsuspecting people undress, strip naked, or engage in sexual activity. The act of watching is generally more interesting than the person being watched. The person doing the watching is known as a voyeur, but they may also be referred to as a peeping Tom.

The fact that the person being seen is unaware that they are being watched is a critical component of voyeurism. The individual is usually at a location where they have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as their home or another private area.

The word voyeur is derived from the French word “voir,” which is derived from the Latin word “videre,” and both mean “to see.” Voyeurism is defined as a practice in which one gains sexual pleasure by surreptitiously observing or watching others, either naked or engaged in any intimate or sexual activity like bathing, disrobing, etc, or engaging in any activity that would be typically classified as ‘private’. Victims of voyeurism are unaware that they are being watched, recorded, or photographed because they feel they are in perfect privacy, and another essential component is that they have not consented to such conduct. Voyeurism is commonly referred to as ‘voyeur’ or ‘peeping tom’.

Types of Voyeurism

Initially, voyeurism was defined as physically peering into homes, bathrooms, or other private spaces through windows, doors, or peepholes to observe a person engaged in some intimate behavior. However, with the advancement of technology, voyeurism is now committed through electronic gadgets, and electronic voyeurism has become a popular habit among voyeurs. It has grown easier and more convenient for people to capture intimate moments without being physically present. The hidden camera can be installed in changing rooms, bathrooms, or other similar locations to film the victim naked or in obscene situations. Voyeuristic content is being utilized as revenge porn since these recordings or images are released and used to blackmail the victim, which both mentally and physically harassed the victim.

Voyeurism and the Role of Technology (The crime for which Matthew Piell has been accused)

Every day, technology evolves in this technological age. The convergence of new image-making technologies and sites, such as digital photography and video, the Internet, CCTV, camera phones, webcams, reality TV, and so on, has greatly aided in the spread of voyeuristic culture among the masses. “Research on cameras with remote swivel and zoom capabilities shows that white males observe and record a disproportionate number of women and minorities.” This raises a red flag, implying that a recording is only as objective as the person operating the camera.  The “new sexual affordances” of modern technologies, as Jeff Hearn has eloquently termed them. 

Camera Phones, for example, have radically transformed photography practices, bringing about both a heightened pervasiveness and a heightened intimacy, as well as new impromptu opportunities to capture covert images. Covert footage of celebrities raises ethical concerns. Capturing voyeuristic images without the knowledge or consent of the person so photographed, and subsequent circulation of such images, is of a larger concern that needs to be addressed.

Penalty for Voyeurism (The crime for which Matthew Piell has been accused)

If convicted of such crimes, perpetrators may face a variety of penalties, all of which are influenced by the facts of the scenario, such as the ages of both the victim and the defendant, and which are increased if there is a history of previous convictions.  If charged with a third-degree crime, incarceration can range from one year to five years in prison, up to five years on probation, and up to $5,000 in fines. In other situations, such as those charged with a second or subsequent violation, video voyeurism could land offenders in prison for up to 15 years.

Concluding with some of the tips for how to avoid Voyeurism (The crime for which Matthew Piell has been accused)

  • Be mindful of their surroundings in public spaces such as restrooms or dressing rooms.
  • Be mindful of your surroundings in general, especially in crowded places like the beach.
  • Accompany small toddlers into public restrooms. 
  • Before getting in, inspect their vehicles, particularly the rear seat.
