The HUFFINGTON POST writes this:
“Hybristophilia is a sexual disorder in which arousal is contingent on being with a partner who has committed an outrage, such as rape, torture or murder,” Katherine Ramsland, a professor of forensic psychology at DeSales University and the author of The Forensic Psychology of Criminal Minds, explained in an interview with HuffPost.
But hybristophilia isn’t always what drives women and men to feel an attraction to killers. In fact, Ramsland told HuffPost it’s rarely to blame.
But it is not just women, and it is not just sexual urges. There is a squadron of men and women who are also seemingly honoring the memory of Charles Manson by purchasing articles of clothing that feature his scowl. Socks, shirts, hats.. all available from your local serial killer shop.
A certain bit of society preys on depravity.
Manson has been with us enough time in pop culture now to showcase the true and total ability that human beings have to worship the cult of death.
