5 Reasons Why Necrophiles Have Sex With Corpses

Necrophilia, also called thanatophilia and necrolagnia, is the sexual attraction to corpses.

In 1989, Rosman and Resnick reviewed information from 34 cases of necrophilia describing the individuals' motivations for their behaviors. Here is a list of the top 5 reasons given by the necrophiles:

  1. Desire to possess an unresisting and unrejecting partner (68%)
  2. Reunions with a romantic partner (21%)
  3. Sexual attraction to corpses (15%)
  4. Comfort or overcoming feelings of isolation (15%)
  5. Seeking self-esteem by expressing power over a homicide victim (12%).



  2. O.o What are these percentages for? They add up to 131 percent. Could they give more than one answer or something?
