    Do you think that the number one cause of serial killing is pornography?

    I just saw this interview on youtube of a man that I never knew before. He was executed before my birth. His name was Ted Bundy. He said in his interview (one day before his execution) that almost every serial killer that he had come across was influenced by the intensified versions of pornography that corrupted their minds. Do you guys agree with it or not.? Because I had always considered child abuse as the number one cause of serial killing.

    As far as I've read, Bundy attributed his crimes to both media violence and pornography, which stimulated and increased his need to kill. But the need was already there. Criminologist Eric W. Hickey describes a model which states that the development of a serial killer begins with an early trauma, which is followed by various facilitators (which can be drugs, alcohol, violence, abuse, pornography, etc.)

    Even though Bundy said that in an interview, he also came from a more or less unstable childhood, and had resentment towards his mother for not telling him the truth about who his father was.

      Yes you are right that many childhood factors can facilitate such actions. But is pornography at the top of such factors?
      And despite Bundy's mother lied to him, he had a stable childhood. Such actions can't alone be justified by such a lie.

      Thief12posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Bundy always spoke well of his grandparents, who raised him, but it is said that finding out the truth about his parents was a traumatic event and that he always had resentment towards his mother. But also, I'm not saying this justifies his actions.

    3. shahkar-khan profile image59
      shahkar-khanposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      He came to know of his mother after attaining maturity, so this incident can not be a part of his early trauma. And yeah his actions can't be justified in any manner.

      "stable childhood"? His "father" was a nasty drunk. His mother pretended to be his sister (no matter when that is learned it's life changing). So all that goes out the door and you just see porn as the cause?

    5. shahkar-khan profile image59
      shahkar-khanposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      So this means we all can be killers (because something will change our life ) irrespective whenever it happens. And the identity of his father has never been determined with certainty. Bundy never saw him. how can this be influential?

    6. peeples profile image93
      peeplesposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Which is why I wrote "father". I was referring to his grandfather who said he was his father. Your logic implies anyone who watches porn is at risk for becoming a serial killer. Abuse isn't an excuse, but it is fact most serial killers are abused.

    No, I believe that that type of pornography is something that sociopaths turn to because they are deviant. For instance, if a "normal" person watches pornography that is filled with say, torture, they'll be likely to get sick to their stomach and stop watching because it is completely outside of what they can accept into their lives. Conversely, those who are fascinated by it are attracted because it keys in to their already existing fantasies OR it keys in to some aspect of control or violence that replicates a past experience in some way in their mind (feelings of helplessness, for instance.)

    Dr. Henry Howard Holmes, was one of the first documented American serial killers in the modern sense of the term. In Chicago at the time of the 1893 World's Fair.  While he confessed to 27 murders, of which four were confirmed, his actual body count could be as high as 200.
    This was way before there was anything close to modern day pornography. There have been studies that have shown many serial killers started torturing and killing animals while they were children.
    Our society is always looking for a "common denominator" to either explain or predict human behavior. I suspect every serial killer has his or her (own) "triggers" that caused them to kill their first victim. Afterwards their actions take on a life of it's own as they read about their exploits or watch news reports which feeds their ego and drives them to be more spectacular/notorious with each new kill as they chase fame.
    If they're given a nickname such as "The Night Stalker", "The Zodiac Killer", "The Green River Killer", or "Boston Strangler" they become immortalized as if they were some comic book villain.
    When they're apprehended it's almost a cliché to hear their unknowing neighbors proclaim: "He was a loner, quiet, and kept to himself." Maybe they kill to draw attention from a world that was unkind to them and never made them feel welcome.

      You could easily say violence on TV contributes to  serial killing, eating cold cereal, too much sugar in a diet, or whatever. Serial killers are individuals with their own motives. Billions of people watch porn and never kill a single person.

      Porn industry also includes body-sellers and night-bars. 90% serial killers attack them because they are an easy target. There are other factors but porn-industry is playing its ''vital role'' as well.

      We look for whatever it is (we don't like) and try to attach it to being the cause of society's ills. If one hates porn they'll ignore that billions of people watch it without killing anyone. Serial killers are a tiny % of mentally ill people.

      maybe 20% were prostitutes. another 20% might be due to porn movies. Another 20% might be due to another sex-related issue. This will add up to more than 90% eventually.

      This is so true. Serial killers are either sociopathic or psychopathic in personalities. They have no remorse, very low or no empathy level, and/or have no sense of right& wrong. Many factors infl. serial killers such as child abuse/neglect.

  5. peeples profile image93
    peeplesposted 5 years ago

    Just because you dislike porn and find one or two who watched it does not equate the two. Serial killers form based on genetics and childhood environmental factors. This is fact not really open for variance. Over 70% suffered from severe childhood trauma which in normal population causes mental illness. 46% admitted families with sexual problems. 33% had families with drug abuse problems. 42% were physically abused. 74% were psychologically abused. 43% were sexually abused. 73% were put into sexually stressful events as children (ex:watching mom have sex). The number one cause of serial killers is crappy parenting mixed with mental instabilities that are already present before even fully grown.  I advise if you really want to know anything about the causes, percentages, and real numbers of when serial killers existed that you read the (yes the actual books) Serial Killer Encyclopedias. These have the facts on all serial killers that were throughout history, in countries other than just USA.  There are always between 35 and 300 (yes a wide range since some countries refuse to connect murders) active serial killers in the world.

      It doesn't add up to a hundred because it is OUT OF A HUNDRED. Most of them have overlapping (multiple things happened to each of the serial killers) abuse.  They were that abused usually.

      Childhood is the most delicate time to infringe a person's mind. Childhood abuse can go a long way while morphing our personality. Serial Killing can also be a result on child abuse. I agree with peeples.

      It's not biased, it's all fact based. I have studied it far more than I probably should. Facts are that more are abused than aren't. Mix that with genetic influences that I thankfully must not have and it's a recipe for disaster.

      Its not the pornography but rather repressed sexual desires. Freud and Wilhelm Reich had studies on the subject. The repression causes anger and frustration due to unfulfilled desires. If they have a criminal mind or mental illness that amplifies it.

    7. shahkar-khan profile image59

      Repressed Sexual Desires are in-turn also caused due to pornography. According to Meese Report pornography can cause depression, social isolation, career loss or decreased productivity, and financial consequences. Such factors lead to s.killing too.

    Every human being has his/her own perceptions and that is why our behavior is so unpredictable. For some pornography might be a motivating factor but for others it might not be the case. Every person is not the same. But i do watched a video on youtube in which James Deen pointed out that the reason for producing such intense porn videos was that the public demands such videos. This means that intense pornography is much demanded nowadays.
    This depicts that we humans are becoming aggressive with every passing day. Which goes to show that serial killing (irrespective of any factor) or in general our aggressive behavior is increasing day by day.

    Absolutely... Many studies have consistently proved that pornographic addiction is the gateway to a a life of social deviance... Most criminals first started breaking away from mainstream society on account of their severe addiction to pornography. Over time, merely watching videos did not satisfy them and they craved for something harder and more physical, and in time, even that failed to satisfy, and they entered a serious crime.

    Pornography is all about using another for self gratification, even at the cost of the other, and that is also the spirit behind a large number of murders.

    Pornography also clouds reason, and as a result, it results in ill-advised actions. Combined with drug/alcohol abuse, it is a terribly destructive force. I have watched the entire Bundy video myself, and everything he mentions is true. Pornography wrecks the lives of promising young people by encouraging unreasonable expectations.

    Considering how much money the porn industry makes (in modern day society) it's unlikely it has any notable contribution to serial killers. Otherwise, the U.S. population would be mostly serial killers. With the spread of the internet, more and more people are exposed to adult content. While gun deaths are a major problem for the U.S. they aren't coming from murderers like Ted Bundy. Men and women who can be classified as 'serial killers' have much deeper psychological issues that are independent from the media they consume.

    That's not to say that watching a large amount of porn won't have an affect on the viewer. But that affect is more likely to skew their view of sex rather than give them a desire to kill.

    No, I don't. I believe that serial killers are narcissistic individuals that have already abandoned empathy for others. Killing enables them to feel powerful, sometimes even omnipotent. They may use pornography, video game violence, literature or even religious or philosophical ideals to hone their brand of narcissism, but these things are only a psychological excuse to carry out their behavior.

    Not in Bundy's case. He was a liar, and used that excuse to gain sympathy. He was putting on a show in that video. I used it in one of my hubs, in fact. That being said, pornography doesn't help. Primarily, it causes men to disrespect women, depending upon the amount of their daily viewing.The following is a pdf from the findings of Dr. Mary Layton about this subject and also, how women who work in strip clubs are at the highest risk for violence by men than any other group of women besides prostitutes.
    http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2013_1 … _other.pdf

    Pornography aside, Bundy had an anti-social disorder (to say the least). He was very depraved. That being said, I despise pornography, but I don't think it necessarily makes serial killers, but it does make men more calloused. If you read the pdf, you'll have even more reason to agree.

      True about prostitutes & strippers, yet the fact is most of them were sexually abused as young girls. And indeed, according to Dr.Layton, men do become more aggressive toward women if they view pornography habitually. So I do see your point, shah
