    J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 2019; 47(3):335-346Edwards MJ
  • Bestiality is an uncomfortable topic about which there is limited scientific literature.

This quantitative, descriptive study examined 456 arrests for bestiality-related incidents in the United States from 1975 to 2015 to explore patterns of o…
  • Occurrence and variability of tactile interactions between wild American crows and dead conspecifics. [Journal Article]
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 2018; 373(1754)Swift K, Marzluff JM
  • Observations of some mammals and birds touching their dead provoke questions about the motivation and adaptive value of this potentially risky behaviour. Here, we use controlled experiments to determine if tactile interactions are characteristic of wild American crow responses to dead crows, and what the prevalence and nature of tactile interactions suggests about their motivations. In Experiment…

  • A dataset of 73 variables was complied on 345 serial killers, 31 of whom who engaged in cannibalism. A distinction was made between those who engaged only in cannibalism, those who engaged in necrophilia, and those who engaged in both or neither. Those who engaged in both cannibalism and necrophilia were the most psychiatrically disturbed and deviant, but those who engaged in only cannibalism wer…
  • Digital and divergent: sexual behaviors on the Internet. [Review]
    J Am Acad Psychiatry Law 2014; 42(4):495-503Klein CA
  • A variety of sexual behaviors occur online, including those that are highly unusual or even plainly illicit. There is a growing body of literature pertaining to sexual abuse of minors that occurs or may be promoted online, but there is a paucity of information regarding other Internet-based sexual interactions, such as manufacturing, dissemination, and online viewing of other atypical sexual mate…

An interested person may have to rely on the few case reports from forensic journals or law books in order to understand what and how…

  • A new classification of zoophilia. [Journal Article]
    J Forensic Leg Med 2011; 18(2):73-8Aggrawal A
  • Zoophilia is a paraphilia whereby the perpetrator gets sexual pleasure in having sex with animals. Most jurisdictions and nations have laws against this practice. Zoophilia exists in many variations, and some authors have attempted to classify zoophilia previously. However unanimity does not exist among various classifications. In addition, sexual contact between humans and animals has been given…
