Fortunately, this crime is very rare, but unfortunately, this also means we have a lack of insight into the minds of mysopeds, other than what criminologists have been able to derive from their analyses. There does appear to be some level of connection, although perhaps a majority would balk at going as far as the mysopeds? Mysopeds seem to be strangely drawn to mutilation, if the case reports are to be generalized.
Some people would probably balk at how I separate people into discrete groups. Different forms of maps, the acquired forms, or idiopathic. Sadists / Philes. And maybe, some people are both. But, I don’t think it is useful to confuse these things as the same, because they’re not. It isn’t “inclusive”, but diluting terms makes them useless, and it does further that misunderstanding that a majority are “like that”.
An adult attracted person might also pursue a child in a limited number of situations. I would not consider them a MAP, unless they met the appropriate criteria for it.
If someone has sadistic tendencies, I obviously hope very much they don’t act on it, and I’m not fond of violent videos either. It’s perhaps unconstitutional to ban general violence, so there is not much which can be done there in all cases. I don’t really care if someone watches fantasy violence, and I’m not sure this is the same group?
Sadists are more likely to inflict lasting damage, if they do act on it, than any other group. This is not to say contact is suddenly okay, but there is a higher severity. As for mysopeds, when I first read some of these case reports, it made me cry.
ICD-11 has a code for something which could be related, but ICD / DSM are rarely comprehensive enough to be useful. Mysopedia, or milder forms which haven’t been looked into, would be an external concept to ICD / DSM. Some people would consider it pedophilia, but I think “she is very hot” is very different from “I want to beat her up”.
