Women Out of Control
How the Girls Next Door Became Some of the World's Most Notorious Sex CriminalsPaperback - 2007
Lorena Bobbitt, Karla Homolka, Pamela Smart, Mary Letourneau, and Karla Faye Tucker -- their names are recognized internationally and their stories continue to grab the headlines. How could these attractive, feminine, girl-next-door stereotypes be capable of such crimes as rape, torture and sexual assault? Women Out of Control details the continuing story of these convicted women -- their sex crimes, their excuses, their dramatic lives, and their twisted notions of love. Supported by court transcripts, research studies, psychiatric reports and expert opinions, Linda Stunell's extraordinary book dares to tell the truth about female sex crimes and female sexuality. It exposes the myths about love, power, and gender differences, and reveals how the media hype results in making celebrity superstars out of attractive women criminals. Stunell, a certified clinical hypnotherapist and sex counselor, takes the reader on a fascinating journey inside the minds of women who lost control and committed sexual crimes that seem completely at odds with their nature and appearance -- and who became some of the world's most notorious female criminals.
