The criminal motive, which is the driving force that causes the criminal to commit, has important value in the criminal psychological structure. The criminal motive of Gao chengyong's series of rapes and homicides belongs to a relatively hidden type of criminal motive. The criminal modus operandi of Gao is cruel, which is beyond the normal degree of sexual crimes. The criminal psychology of Gao, which is related to sex, belongs to the kind of awareness knot in the dangerous knot. On this basis, it is inferred that Gao's sexual pleasure is obtained through the high excitement generated by victim's mutilation. Because of sexual disordered, it can't be obtained through normal sexual life. The purpose of paper is to deepen the understanding of human nature in the field of criminal psychology based on levels of consciousness and Freud's model of the mind.
