TRUE CRIME UNCENSORED!
“We’ve all heard about deviant sexual behaviors. However, there is an entire subculture of people that engages in bizarre sexual acts with much more vigor and passion than others, so much so that it becomes a way of life. For some of these people, it’s an obsession that disrupts the very fabric of their lives and the lives of others.”
Just when you think you’ve heard it all… An entertaining and at times tongue-and-cheek look into cases of bizarre sexually obsessive behaviors (paraphilias) that had unintended consequences. Each chapter briefly explores the lesser-known fetishes and fixations to the more common ones that unexpectedly led to severe injury, imprisonment and death. Case-by-case accounts provide insight into the circumstances surrounding such infamous incidences as the deaths of INXS singer Michael Hutchence and actor David Carradine, who were believed to have accidently died from auto-erotica asphyxiation, and the more recent Northern Virginia “Serial Butt Slasher” case, where women shopping in malls were brutally stabbed in the behind by an by a suspect identified on a mall video tape. These unusual and often disconcerting accounts seriously challenge the adage “What feels good can’t be wrong.”
