I would classify Karla Homolka as a sexual gratification rapist, divided into overt. In other words, I would classify her as type 4 according to the Massachusetts Treatment Classification scheme. She and her boyfriend played out sexual fantasies and when that wasn’t enough for him, she went out and found girls to sacrifice or give as a gift to him to sexually assault. Then again, his fantasies can be fulfilled with these girls. I would classify the pattern of rape they used as sadistic rape. They got pleasure out of watching these girls suffer, often video taping it. All of their victims were ultimately murdered by the couple when they were finished except one that somehow survived.
