Peeping Tom

It refers to the person who derives pleasures, usually sexual, by watching others secretly or spying on others especially females undressing or couples having sex. It can be termed as invasion of privacy and can be filed a lawsuit against. This term was derived when legendary Tom watched the Lady Godiva ride a horse in streets naked to protest against the taxes.
