    The comfort oriented killer, in relation(and difference) to the hedonistic typology is their anticipated gain.The comfort killer is someone who enjoys it and does it for fun. Or.. gets paid for it, they kill for reasons other then sexual gain.

  2. Hedonistic (lust) killers murder for sexual gratification or thrills an pleasures , they kill for the pure thrill an joy of it engaging in cruel an perverted activity . They enjoy the rush they get from it ! While the Comfort – oriented killer murders for profit or personal gain , they feel it is their mission in life to kill certain kinds of people such as homosexuals an prostitutes.
