Hybristophilia is a more or less female-only paraphilia involving attraction to men who are inclined to committing crimes. It is similar to scelerophilia in that they are both female-dominated paraphilias involving antisocial behavior. In laymen's terms, this is called "going for the bad guys" or "aiming for thugs".

Women appear to have a simultaneous preference for physical threat and romance in men, the former for protection and the latter for provision. Both are a consequence of a sex difference in parental investment.

Prevalence[edit | edit source]

Hybristophilia appears to be an almost entirely female phenomenon.[1]While men were attracted to a handful of female convicts like Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias, the degree of the attraction was much smaller than the attraction women have displayed toward almost all modern high profile mass murderers. In men's cases, such women are almost always naturally physically attractive, whereas female hybristophilia seems to offer a rare exception to looks theory.

More than 60% of women have rape fantasies, which likely overlaps with hybristophilia as rape is considered a crime in many modern countries. Women might even underreport such fantasies due to social desirability bias. More evidence is that rape is often portrayed in romance novels which accounts for 40% of mass paperback sales in the United States,[2] with romance novels about dangerous and criminal men being primarily consumed by women. Women also have a keen interest in crime reports. On Reddit, one finds women are strongly overrepresented on e.g. /r/truecrime, but strongly underrepresented on /r/police, which means interest in law enforcement cannot explain this pattern.[3]

Examples[edit | edit source]

Josef Fritzl[edit | edit source]

Even the infamous Austrian rapist/murderer, Josef Fritzl, who was widely reviled for keeping his daughter imprisoned in a purpose built soundproof atomic bunker for decades, and fathering several children by her (one of which he murdered by throwing it in an incinerator) received 'hundreds of love letters' from women.[4] Despite being sub 4 in looks.

Ted Bundy[edit | edit source]

One woman stole Ted Bundy's sperm while he was in jail.

Joran Van der Sloot[edit | edit source]

The highest profile murderer of 2010, Joran Van der Sloot, has bragged to the press about the volume of love letters he receives from women. Robert Chambers, the so-called Preppie Killer, had so many female groupies trying to smuggle him contraband in jail that he had to be transferred to another prison facility.[5]

Chris Watts[edit | edit source]

Chris Watts, a high profile murderer, after he got sentenced to jail for killing his pregnant wife and two daughters started receiving a barrage of love letters from women.[6].

James Holmes[edit | edit source]

With regards to killers like James Holmes, they *only* got female admiration after their crimes. James spent his days before his killing unsuccessfully browsing some scammy website for sexual losers (adultfriendfinder). This was not the case for any high profile female mass murderer who was sexually appreciated by men. They had male admiration before their killings.

John Wayne Gacy[edit | edit source]

Even the pedophile rapist and serial killer John Wayne Gacy, who was notorious for sodomizing and murdering at least 33 teenage boys and burying them under his house, was a recipient of the affections of female hybristophiles. Not known for his dashing good looks, he received a marriage proposal in prison[7]. And he also received love letters from 'several' female groupies. [8]

Fictional Examples[edit | edit source]

In Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a woman named Wendy Herbert (played by Laura Dern) wants to marry the cult leader Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, who kidnapped Kimmy Schmidt , 2 other teenage girls, and an older Hispanic woman, and held them hostage in an underground bunker for 15 years and brainwashed them into thinking the apocalypse had come and the outside world was uninhabitable.
