Sammanfattning (abstract):
The analysis was built upon transcripts from group psychotherapy including three men sentenced to forensic psychiatric care for rape and murder of unknown women. Besides sexual crime and murder, no other criminality was documented. Two were born in Sweden, both parents being Swedish, and one man was born in a North-European country. The DSM-IV diagnoses fitting some rapists is sexual sadism, defined as recurrent intense sexual arousal, fantasies, sexual urges, or acts where the psychological or physical suffering of the victim is sexually exciting. Further, that the fantasies, urges, and behaviours cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas during at least six months. Lust murderers are characterized by the sexual gratification aroused by killing, whereas the sexual-sadistic killer gets pleasure from experiencing the victim’s physical suffering. Feelings of aggression were present before and during the perpetrations. Sometimes, aggression turned to sexual excitement. The opposite was also present; the rape was motivated by sexual urges, which turned to aggression during the perpetration. Another recurrent pattern was the participants’ difficulties in understanding their own motives and feelings related to the perpetrations.
