Paul Bernardo Essay, Research Paper
The urge shot through the mans body, uncontrollable, like sharks in a
feeding frenzy. He could only quench his feverish desires by carrying out
unspeakable devilish acts. The victim didn’t matter, no thought was given to
any implications of the satanic rituals. Several times Bernardo resorted to
defecating of human beings in order to satisfy his sick and abnormal urges.
Paul Bernardo’s lustful and diverted sexual desires sprouted from the influence
of pornography. Pornography caused him to fixate on anal intercourse, and
violent, dominant sex. Pornography also played a large role in his lust for
younger virgins, and the ever apparent satomasifism as seen on tape.
Paul Bernardo, during his teenage years became slowly infatuated with
women mostly because of his obsession with porn films. At the time film was
enough to feed his growing desire for kinky sex. He was content to just watch
and not act out what he saw on the videos. Through the steady diet of grotesque
video’s he became of aware of the type of women he wanted through what he saw.
He lusted a women who was submissive and eager to please. This was the
beginning of his abnormal sexual behavior.
One year out of high school, Paul began his journey into the world of
sexual control were he dated a sixteen year old high school student. This girl
perfectly fit the description of Pauls ideal in being naive and unsophisticated.
Over the three and one half years Paul was with her he used her like his
personal sex toy. Throughout the entire relationship he convinced her that what
they were doing was acceptable behavior. An example of his acceptable behavior
was wrapping a piece of twine around her neck while he sodomized her. The twine
only satisfied Bernardo for a time. Later, a knife became part of his “kit.”
These mercenary acts were all influenced by porno films. Paul became aroused
with the power to be the master in his sexual acts and he couldn’t get enough.
One night in October of 1993 Paul seemed to be a magnet to Karla Homoka.
The minute the two met, there relationship set off like a missile. Karla
suffered love at first sight, with his looks, charm and maturity she couldn’t go
wrong. Karla was just the type of women Bernardo desired. She was good-looking,
had a great body was naive and trusting, someone he could control, dominate and
use as his personal sex toy. There sex life fired into action and the two were
constantly searching for new adventures. The pair began having anal sex with
Paul pulling a electrical cord around her own neck while his camera recorded the
moment. The two’s intimacy seemed to have no limits. When it came to their
desires, their urges were unstoppable. Karla was like a dream come true for
Paul because she resembled the women in the Salacious video’s Paul watched.
This made Pauls sex life feral knowing that he had a tremendous opportunity with
Karla and all his sexual fantacies could be carried out.
Karla appeared as though she would go to all lengths to please her
persuasive and controlling lover. She was controlled by Paul that she helped
him drug and rape her younger sister Tammy. She even performed oral sex on her
to please her demented lover, while Paul filmed the event. This new world of
sexual dementia brought Paul to abduct the teen Leslie Mahaffy. Bernardo kept
her for a day, during which he satisfied his lusts, videotaping the assaults for
later pleasure. Mahaffy had to refer to Bernardo as master as he raped her.
Ten months later Bernardo struck again kidnapping Kristen French. Bernardo
inflicted similar hideous atrocities to his 3rd victim as he had done before.
Pauls putrescent fantasies, brought upon by his early encounters with sex,
altered his interests and enticed his mind. Becoming remiss of his partners and
being remorseless to their presence, he chose to act in such a barbarous way.
He only cared about his sexual satisfaction and felt that nothing could stand in
the way of his demented fantasies.
Indoctrinated in his mind at an early age, were demented ideas of what
sexual fulfillment should be. Paul Bernardo grew to become the remorseless,
dysfunctional person he is today because of his early experiences. Suffering
from uncontrollable erotic sensations which compelled him to carry out his
inhuman acts he struggled to please his immense sexual appetite, his many
deranged fantasies were a result of his interest in pornographic material which
fixated his mind on limitless, controlling sex. If Bernardo was subject to
different intellectual material as a child Paul may have chosen a different path
