Lolita seems the most obvious example. Also, possibly, Gaiman's short story Snow, Glass, Apples. If yo haven't read that, you should. I would say also The Catcher in the Rey belongs in this category, but in contrast to the others this one is also badly written.

But our hero does know that his desires are wrong, and he gets rather pissed at people who use rape as a torture tactic.
I felt like the protagonists in Margaret Atwoods Oryx and Crake and Year of the Flood are never anything more than self-motivated, and indeed, some characters are a significant cause of the worlds problems.
