Abstract

This study explored incest offenders' motives for engaging in a sexual offense. Connections that offenders drew between their motives and past and current life contexts are also examined. A series of qualitative interviews with eight Caucasian male incest offenders currently receiving treatment wasused to gather their perceptions of motives. A perceived need for sexual gratification, seeking an outlet from present dissatisfaction, an expressionof anger and the inappropriate display of affection or love were the primary motives described. Early life context of offenders was characterized by physical and emotional abuse and a perception of rejection by one or both parents. Conflict in the marital relationship was the most frequently reported difficulty in their current life related to motives to offend Offenders drew more connections between motives and life context at the time of the offense than they did to past life context. Implications for treatment are discussed.
