Mann, , p. Dwyer once quoted "The offender's self-esteem is fragile, at best, they are seeking out encouragement from another" Dwyer, , p. Taylor explained that a minority of sexual offenders personalised that they had a strong desire for an unpredictable sexual experience, or a foist motive to startle or hurt their victim as the method of justifying their offending. Frosch was able to elaborate on the characteristics of a sexual offender, they are individuals that are often afraid of women in their life, have a distrust for their mother, are distinctively secret about their fantasies, flat in speech, feel insignificant by size of genitals appearing to be smaller, are paranoid and boyishly aggressive, and are significantly anxious due to poor deliverance of sex with prostitutes because of chronic masturbation.
There is an identity that a sexual offender is knowingly prepared to be ostracised by most of society, for most of their natural life, whether they have presented a successful image of rehabilitation or not, the subject may want to hide at least some of their impulsive habituating motives. A summary concluded from Groth and supported by Marshall and Darke , presented that the sexual offender was often angry, dominant and humiliating towards their victims, these characteristics are of greater importance for rapists who operated out of a rewards of rape mentality, and did not have a dominant motive of any sexual act leading up to the act of rape, whereas for a child molester intimacy, sexual gratification and relief from their negative emotional states were thoroughly more focused against the unsuspecting pre-pubescent victim.

Groth, , p. Sharp, , p. Ellis aimed for a more objective attitude towards sexual offenders and their impulses. The sexual offender presents an abnormal gratification of their sexual impulse, however repugnant it may seem, calls for no condemnation or interference except when this person has committed an offence against his partner or a person of the public.
Further to this, a sexual offender constructs justifications for behaviours that violate moral standards, a process called moral disengagement. Bandura The limitation that Taylor exemplified on was that must then be addressed, is that a sex offenders verbalisation of motives may only be, exclusively a socially learned response, which may not be the genuine motive of a sex offender when undergoing an answer on why they offend, and secondly another probable limitation occurred as to why a sexual offender was limited to learning what was socially acceptable as they would commit the act of sexual offending solo and not associate with other sexual offenders.
Conclusively, this study has found that sexual offenders are capable of expressing causes for their motive of offending but may be representing themselves superficially to guard their true motive and emotions from the researchers I included in this investigation. It is still too assumptive to know what a sexual offender is actually feeling, unless they reveal this in a measurable form of empirical data, after careful consideration I was not able to easily deduce on the available data, as there was an underlying variable error that could not be resolved in this instance.

Boston, MA: Heath. Where should we intervene? What she has learned in countless hours of interviews with sexual predators--from respected community leaders to clergymen and trusted family friends--will shock and outrage readers. What motivates sexual abusers? Why are so few caught? Drawing on the stories of abusers, told in their own words, Salter shows that sexual predators use sophisticated deception techniques and deliberately rely on misconceptions surrounding them to evade discovery. A man who raped more than ninety people tells how he fooled authorities by inserting elements of truth into his story.
As recent reports of abuse by priests have shown, abusers often lead double lives in their communities.
Two girls repeatedly raped in front of each other told Salter that their assaulter was "still moderator of the town meetings. Salter, A.
