    The “information” in this article is not only erroneous, it is appallingly offensive to those who have OCDRs. Sex and violence are not, as this list suggests several times, “often of a sexual or violent nature.” While a small fraction of this diagnosed with OCDRs suffer from violent or sexual thoughts, it is certainly not the norm, and definitely not a majority as this author suggests.

    Correct information can be found here: [Link deleted]

    After reading this TopTenz list on a subject with which I am all too familiar, I am no longer interested in reading anything from this site. On subjects lighthearted or otherwise, I cannot trust what I am reading. I believe there is a disclaimer that the “information” contained on this site is for “Entertainment Purposes Only,” I’d rather not be misinformed for the purpose of being entertained.

    I see my link has been deleted from my original comment. Just look at any DSM definition of OCDR criteria, and you will see how sexual and/or violent obsessions are not as commonplace as the author purports.

      Clearly you want to distinguish and defend your own views on this condition.

      Unfortunately, you are wrong, as I have my own experiences and I don’t see a lot in this list that is erroneous. It seems you have your own view and seek to define your own definition at odds with other people who DO experience some of these symptoms. Did you not read that the author also has the condition? Or did you want to tell them theyre wrong..

      Good article, I am glad someone online has spoken up about it. I’m tired of people saying “i’m so OCD” (I’m also tired of people telling others are wrong for their own experiences, maybe they should stop trying to be a special snowflake.)

    I Thank you for your article. Every thing that is written is everything I experience with ocd, including violent and sexual thoughts… And over-obsessing to death!

    Hi Gregory,

    First off, I came across your site and wanted to say thanks for providing a great OCD resource to the community.

    I thought you might find this infographic interesting, as it shows detailed information about the social signs of OCD to look for, and has proved to be a great hit with our readers: [Link deleted]

    Naturally, I’d be delighted if you share this embeddable graphic on [Link deleted], and/or share it with your followers on social. Either way, keep up the great work Gregory!

    All the best,
    Maegan
