We have just added another listing to the Bibliography page:

Pflugradt, D., & Allen, B. (2011). A grounded theory analysis of sexual sadism in females. Journal of Sexual Aggression, iFirst. doi:10.1080/13552600.2011.597058

Abstract

Although there has been a great deal of research conducted on sex offenders, a majority of studies have focused on male perpetrators. The general consensus is that very little is known about female sexual perpetrators due primarily to the small number of identified offenders and sociocultural factors. These issues are even more prominent for subtypes of female perpetrators such as those whose offences involve sexual sadism. The following paper examined five incarcerated female offenders, diagnosed with sexual sadism. Grounded theory analysis was used to identify psychological characteristics and behavioural patterns related to the sadistic behaviours that are not currently included in diagnostic criteria.

We are getting closer to 600 entries for the Bibliography pages.
