This paper discusses sexual homicides and the many things that can be related to them. Using two books, the author of this paper details the meaning of terms including pyromania, necrophilia and paraphilia. Each of the terms is described and discussed in its relation to sex crimes, or lack of criteria for prosecution for sex crimes.

From the Paper:

"Sexual homicides are one of the scariest things that we face in life. Every so often we hear the news that someone has committed sex crimes, or sex murders in our area, or the areas of our loved ones, and it sends shivers up our spines. We often wonder what causes someone to commit such violent acts of anger against another human being. Though we don't like violence in any venue, we can comprehend crimes of self-defense, or an argument gone badly. Try as we might, we will never be able to understand how someone can get any pleasure from committing sex crimes and murders. Sex crimes and sex criminals are not all alike. There are many different manifestations of the need to commit lewd sexual conduct and there are sometimes fine lines as to when that behavior becomes criminal."
