Karla Homolka – Part 1

Karla Homolka

Was she afraid to leave, or was she fulfilled by her involvement?  Psychoanalysts have  drawn the connection between Karla Homolka and a syndrome known as “Bonnie and Clyde” syndrome or hybristophilia –  as it appears some element of paraphilic disorder is in play with Karla.  She had the proclivity for dark sexual fantasies at a young age.  Many teens and young adults do, as they experiment and explore sexuality – and of course even adults do the same.  However, when the disorder comes in … it resembles more of an urge than a desire.  Those urges cross the line of “exploring and sexual play” when they involve their own suffering or humiliation, on themselves or their partner.  Often these disorders can involve repeating, and compelling behaviors that are designed to disable or distress, and can included non-consenting adults or even children. No matter if it causes harm or potentially even death.
