Voyeur – one who sees

Voyeur – someone having a sexual interest in or practice of spying on people engaged in intimate behaviors.
The word ‘voyour’ comes directly from French, though in French its meaning was slightly different, it meant ‘somebody who inspects’. It was a variant of ‘voir’ meaning ‘to see’ and coming from the Latin ‘videre’ which also meant ‘to see’.
