How to use "Perverted" in context?

There are few things as puzzling and hair-raising as perverted behavior. What causes someone to do something unthinkable, or at least deeply offensive? And why do we find it so hard to understand?

Perverted behavior is usually defined as anything that goes beyond the traditional bounds of acceptable behavior. This can encompass anything from sexual thoughts and activities to extreme violence and cruelty.

There is no one definitive answer to why we find perverted behavior so troubling. Perhaps it is because it violates our sense of what is normal and respectable. Or maybe it is because it challenges our comfort zone and forces us to confront the darker sides of our nature.
