Hybristophilia is a paraphilia involving being sexually aroused by people who have committed crimes; in particular cruel or outrageous crimes.

The sexologist John Money defines hybristophilia as:

“a paraphilia of the marauding/predatory type in which sexuerotic arousal and facilitation and attainment of orgasm are responsive to and contingent on being with a partner known to have committed an outrage or crime, such as rape, murder, or armed robbery”

Many high-profile criminals, particularly those who have committed atrocious crimes, receive fan mail in prison, presumably as a result of this phenomenon. In some cases, admirers of these criminals have gone on to marry the object of their affections in prison. An example of this is Ted Bundy who is known to have received about two hundred fan letters each day from female admirers.


Brent Ray Fraser Paraphilias

  • Not everything needs to be normalized. Not everything that people feel, think, plan and/or do needs to be culturally condoned or outright accepted. Being 'fair' to all does not mean justifying or legalizing every inclination ever felt and every urge that emerges in us. Normalizing everything does not mean neutrality.
AMAB/AFAB Paraphilia/Fetish Data
A quick (or not-so-quick; your call) anonymous survey!

Hey guys! I’m collecting data/narratives for a study on paraphilias (fetishes) and I’m looking for accounts from folks with all sorts of different sexual interests!

If you or anyone you know has something pretty unique or weird (not a term I use negatively) they’re into, this is a safe place to dump that info with someone who has pretty much heard it all & doesn’t judge!

Please reblog this if you feel comfortable. I’d like to reach as many people as I can!

Edit: Something interesting I’ve learned already is that a BUNCH of people born between 1988 and 1997 learned they were into bondage from the Red Jasmine scene in Aladdin! Keep the narratives coming please!

I argue that hybristophilia is a paraphilic manifestation of Societal Stockholm Syndrome, [societal] trauma-bonding and the fetishization of male violence. Especially since self-diagnosed hybristophiles are usually heterosexual females.


All of the following sexual preferences are known as paraphilias- “unusual loves.” This term comes from the Greek para, meaning “beyond” or “outside the usual,” and philia, the word for “love.” Paraphilias are defined as a persistent need, for more than six months, for unusual objects, fetishes, rituals, or situations to achieve sexual satisfaction. 

  • anthropophagy- eating the victim’s flesh or slicing off portions of it
  • erotophonophilia- the preference for brutalizing and killing a victim as a means of sexual satisfaction
  • flagellationism- a desire to whip or beat a sexual victim
  • hematophilia/hematomania- a desire to see or drink blood
  • kleptomania- theft as a form of sexual expression
  • necrosadism- a desire to mutilate corpses
  • picquerism- stabbing or cutting as a substitution for sex
  • pyrophilia- a desire to watch fires for sexual pleasure
  • sadism- infliction of pain for sexual satisfaction
  • scoptophilia- seeking sexual pleasure by peeping through windows

* Today I get a book or catalog illustrated talk on “Paraphilias” (sexual deviations). Thanks Carol and Robert for sending me this gift from Chile … and I have really wanted to see them.

anonymous asked:

Can asexuals feel sexual attraction towards feet? Or basically can asexuals can have paraphilias?

Paraphilias aren’t strictly speaking sexual attraction - they’re essentially the stimuli that cause arousal. So yes, you can have paraphilias (like a foot fetish, or autochorissexualism, or BDSM) and still be asexual, absolutely. 


Today's Notes about serial Killers

Serial Murder: is the killing of three or more people over a period of more than 30 days, with significant cooling-off period between killings. Elements of serial murder:

  • The crime is repetitive
  • the murders are typically one-on-one
  • the relationship between the killer and the victim is generally speaking, unknown
  • The serial murderer is motivated by some driving force to commit the crime
  • 4 factors of classification for serial murderers: (According to Eric Hickey)

The visionary Killer: Commits murder because of some inner voice that order them to kill. The visionary killer is said to be psychotic and out of touch with reality. Example:

David Berkowitz (“son of Sam”)

The Mission-Oriented Killer: Wants to get rid the world of certain people whose presence they feel is quite negative for society. These killers are in touch with reality and aware of their actions. 

Example: John Wayne Gacy 

The Hedonistic Killer: murder for a variety of reasons, with the major reason being the exhilarating thrill of it. Sexual gratification isoccasionally obtained in these type of murders. 

Example: Jeffrey Dahmer 

4. Power or control-oriented killers: Killers completely dominate their victims. The rape, and various sexual and physical assaults agains the person harmed are not motivated by sex, rather than a lust for power and control. 

     Example: Ted Bundy        

Erotophonophilia: Is the acting out of deviant sexual behaviors by brutally and sadistically killing the victim to achieve ultimate sexual satisfaction.
Paraphilias involved:

  • Flagellationism: intense desire to beat, whip someone.
  • Anthropophagy: intense desire to eat the flesh or body parts of another.
  • Picquerism: intense desire to stab, wound, or cut the flesh of another person.
  • Nocrosadism: sexual contact with a dead body.
