The Disturbed Mind: Compliant Victims of the Sexual Sadist

The presentation of Karla Homolka as a victim of her husband, Paul Bernardo, relied heavily on the work of Dr. Roy Hazelwood; particularly his paper The Disturbed Mind: Compliant Victims of the Sexual Sadist.

"This is a descriptive summary of the experiences of a sample of women who have been consensually involved with criminal sexual sadists. The paper details the physical, sexual, and psychological abuse to which the women were subject as well as the process by which they were transformed from independent, competent woman to the compliant appendages of their criminally active partners. Similarities in the sexual sadist's criminal and consensual sexual activities as they reflect a specific paraphilic preference are discussed."
