This paper explores the outlaw motorcycle gang subculture and examines the mental illnesses present within this self-indulgent wild lifestyle.
Since the mid-1930s, outlaw motorcycle gangs have terrorized not just the United States, but a large part of the world. The Hedonistic subculture is brimming with sadistic sexual acts, multiple forms of addiction, and blatant disregard for society. To be a member of such a deviant subculture takes a special type of person, one who revels in its abnormalities. The members of the outlaw biker subculture largely have one thing in common, some form of mental defect. The aim of this paper is to deeply explore the outlaw subculture itself and to examine the mental illnesses present within this self-indulgent wild lifestyle. (Published Abstract)
