Stories like this leave me wondering: is it a morbid desire to have a sense of being needed by someone, anyone, that makes some women resort to such terrible things?

Sabrina Bonner surrendered in May 2011 just before her husband was due to be released from prison.
Sabrina Bonner, 25, blindfolded the young boy during several visits to the Toul detention center between 2009 and 2010 so partner Lionel Barthelemy, 31, could have sex with him.
They also filmed the vile scenes on a cellphone — which Barthelemy, imprisoned for violence since August 2009 — kept so he could watch while alone in his cell.
Bonner gave herself up to cops in May 2011 just before Barthelemy was due to be released from prison, reports The Local.
Both Bonner and Barthelemy confessed to multiple counts of rape and sexual assault of the boy, who is now 8, at a court in Strasbourg this week.
A judge sentenced each of them to 20 years.
Yannick Pheulpin, the boy’s lawyer, said he would now be launching legal action against the prison to account for the suffering of the child.
