The author states that “this finding goes a long way to dispelling the myth that sexual abuse by women is misconstrued as inappropriate expressions of affection” (p. 31). Saradjian’s study also gives support to the view by Plummer (1981) that female sexual deviance can be a part of the sexual offending patterns of females and that a pedophilic tendency by females should not be so easily dismissed. Sexual motivations for female sexual offending is seldom discussed in the literature or investigated in studies on female sexual offenders.

A study by Johansson-Love and Fremouw (2009) comparing case files and chart notes of male and female sex offenders with male and female offenders of nonsexual crimes in the West Virginia Department of Corrections found that sexual victimization in the history of female sex offenders was “only partially supported,” with 45 percent of the female sex offenders reporting prior sexual victimization and 33 percent of the female offenders of nonsexual crimes also reporting prior sexual abuse. 100 The female sex offender group did not indicate differences in reported anxiety disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, as compared to the other groups.

Strickland (2008) found similarities between the female sexual offenders and female offenders in terms of lacking a personal accountability for their crimes and a persistent tendency to “blame the victim” (p. 482). This finding is similar to Johansson-Love and Fremouw’s (2009) study that found that female sex offenders had the fewest admissions of guilt for their sexual crimes and “were the least likely to admit guilt when compared to male and female offenders of violent crimes” (p. 372). 8 percent of male sex offenders gave no admission of guilt to their sexual offenses.
