piquerism
 n.— «In Michigan, for example, Detective Lieutenant Darrell Pope, a Vice-Investigator with the Michigan State Police, in a public lecture (May 1, 1979) titled, “Does Pornographic Literature Incite Sexual Assaults?” gave numerous cases where the assailants had immersed themselves in pornographic films and pictures and then had gone out and committed rape, sodomy, and even the bizarre erotic crime of piquerism (piercing with a knife till blood flows, a kind of sexual torture).» —“Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Committee on Judiciary, House of Representatives” Revision of the Federal Criminal Code (Washington, D.C.) , 1979.
