I learnt today “Hybristophilia” is a sexual attraction to serial killers. I didn’t know there was a word for it, but apparently there is and that’s what it is.

If you haven’t yet read my most recently published work Have Shovel – Will Bury you may be wondering why I bring this up. If you have, then you know there’s a character in the story who is very fond of serial killers (hence the tagline: “Murder. Blackmail. True Love.“).

I didn’t know it at the time of writing the story but I’m happy to find out there’s a word for people like her.

Want to know more about Hybristophilia? Check out Wikipedia’s page. That’s where I found out about it.

Are you a closet Hybristophiliac? It’s cool, I’m not here to judge. I’ll just leave this link here for you to check out Have Shovel – Will Bury. 🙂
