The great research published in the last decade or two has taught us that aberrant sexual behavior is found in other species, is ubiquitous in man, and is the product of brain and hormonal factors that can function independently of anything we might call psyche.

I had referred to these texts some years ago on commencing work with a year-old bi-racial man in a forensic setting. My client disclosed to me that he had repeatedly raped and routinely sexually molested and degraded the several women with whom he had had relationships since his adolescence, adding that he masturbated compulsively to accompanying fantasies of rape and molestation of his mother. He also told me of the intense hatred he felt towards women in particular, and of a more general wish to kill people, expressing consternation about his propensity to behave violently.
