Abstract:

The current study explores domestic violence by examining the body as it is felt and lived by batterers. Given the primacy of the body in domestic violence – abusers use their bodies to control their victims who are, in turn, controlled through the violence inflicted upon their bodies – exploration of the physiological, sensory, and perceptual aspects of domestic violence yields vital information about the lived experiences of batterers. Denzin (1984) argues that we need to examine those social structures and processes that influence domestic violence from the viewpoint of interactive individuals who enact and embody those structures and processes. Through in-depth interviews with 20 batterers and 15 battered women, the current study explores men’s physiological and sensory experiences before, during, and in the aftermath of violent incidents to reveal a continuum of men’s physiological and sensory experiences. On one end of the continuum, we find heightened physiological feelings and sensory perception. On the other end, are dulled physiological feeling and senses. As batterers’ move along the continuum, we discover that their physio-sensory experiences reflect and maintain the power inequalities between batterers and battered women.
