The importance of fantasy in sexual crimes was stressed by Hazelwood and Warren (58), who found that “fantasy is the link between the underlying motivations for sexual assaults and the behavior exhibited during the crime” (p. 137). Not everyone who has deviant fantasies commits a sexually motivated offense. In fact, a large proportion of the noncriminal and nonpsychiatric population also report deviant sexual fantasies, including homicidal fantasies (59,60), but do not act on them. For instance, Grendliner and Byrne (61) found that 54% of men who never committed a sexual assault fantasized about having forced sex with a partner.
