Hybristophilia is a more or less female-only paraphilia involving extreme sexual attraction to criminals. It is similar to scelerophilia in that they are both mostly-female paraphilias pertaining to getting wet to nefarious characters. Those in the manosphere often view both of these as common among women. In laymen’s terms, this is called “going for the bad guys” or “aiming for thugs”. Hybristophilia is also one of the reasons why the idiom “nice guys finish last” gained currency.
Hybristophilia directed at infamous criminals with heavy press attention is partially due to the fact that women are sexually attracted to fame/infamy more so than men. Even though women are more sexually attracted to non-famous assholes than to non-famous nice guys, becoming famous through good or neutral deeds could yield even better sexual outcomes than through infamy.
Hybristophilia and dark triad
Female preference of non-famous bad boys over non-famous good guys is because women find the former more exciting, due to the potential for danger. These women perceive the latter archetype of men with manners and etiquette as boring. For the other half of hybristophiliacs, their preference for dysfunctional sociopaths and narcissists has more to do with the fact that they have very low-self-esteem and can’t bring themselves to accept niceties. These women have some semblance of endorphin-opposing phobias, such as cherophobia or hedonophobia.
Pretty much only a female phenomenon
While men were attracted to a handful of famous, female convicts like Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias, the degree of the attraction was much smaller than the attraction women hold toward almost all high profile modern mass murderers. It can also be noted that such women are physically attractive, whereas female hybristophilia seems to offer a rare exception to looks theory in some rare cases.
The infamous Austrian rapist/murderer, Josef Fritzl, who was widely reviled for keeping his daughter imprisoned in a purpose built soundproof atomic bunker for decades, and fathering several children by her (one of which he murdered by throwing it in an incinerator) received “hundreds of love letters” from women. Despite being sub 4 in looks.
More Notable Examples
A woman also stole Ted Bundy’s fucking seed while he was in jail. Almost every male, extremely notorious criminal has been bombarded with love notes from women.
Joran Van der Sloot
The highest profile murderer of 2010, Joran Van der Sloot, bragged to the press about the volume of love letters he received from women. Robert Chambers, the so-called Preppie Killer, had so many female groupies trying to smuggle him contraband in jail that he had to be transferred to another prison facility.
Chris Watts, a high profile murderer, after he got sentenced to jail for killing his pregnant wife and two daughters started receiving a barrage of love letters from women.
With regards to killers like James Holmes, they *only* got female admiration after their crimes. James spent his days before his killing unsuccessfully browsing some scammy website for sexual losers (adultfriendfinder). This was not the case for any high profile female mass murderer who was sexually appreciated by men. They had male admiration before their killings.
John Wayne Gacy
Even the pedophile rapist and serial killer John Wayne Gacy, who was notorious for sodomizing and murdering at least 33 teenage boys and burying them under his house, was a recipient of the affections of female hybristophiles. Not known for his dashing good looks, he received a marriage proposal in prison. And he also received love letters from “several” female groupies.
