Hybristophilia, refers to when people are sexually aroused by partners who are known to have committed an offensive or violent act.

Dr Ramsland said offenders — both men and women — didn't have to be physically attractive to attract admirers.

"They can be bold and confident," she said.

"[Bundy] had the confidence, charisma, daring, and resourcefulness of an alpha-male personality that projects a sense of protection.

"In addition, he had a nervous energy and predatory look that attracts some types who like the edginess of a person who can plan and carry out violent acts.

"In their minds, they thought, he might kill other women but he'd be good to me."

Sometimes just the media attention can be enough.

"Lots of people are drawn to 'celebrities', no matter what they've done," Dr Ramsland said.

And others like the "edgy sense of violence in getting close to convicted killers", she said.

I have no problem with Netflix romanticising Ted Bundy, because he was a deeply charismatic and charming individual.

I'm well aware of the existence of 'Bundyphiles' as they were called. Every celebrity has stalkers and people otherwise obsessed with them. It's quite fascinating actually how many women go on Jeffrey Dahmer tours. And this was a gay man who had a beheading and dismemberment fetish.

All the paraphilias are the same thing; there are not enough "perfect lovers" for everybody, so, in order to have sex, most of the people need any.
Don´t forget male psychopaths also have a dick.
Women say men are like the lavatory of a petrol station; they are busy, or full of ****.
