Amokoscisia is a state of intense sexual arousal accompanied by a desire to maim or mutilate women.
The term is sometimes used synonymously with sadism. However, sadists can take sexual pleasure from inflicting mental cruelty on people. In amokoscisia, the cruelty always has a physical component. Sadism is also a non-gendered term, while people experiencing amokoscisia want to physically harm women. For this reason, amokoscisia can be best thought of as a type of sadism.
