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.
