Correct me if I am wrong…but I think it was Dr. James Cantor who brought this up a few months back…
Many people mistakenly believe that because something is classified as a chronophilia, it somehow “cannot be a sexual orientation”…and they extrapolate that “pedophilia cannot be a sexual orientation”, based upon this assumption.
What they fail to realize, is that all human sexual orientations simultaneously exist, as a chronophilia.
Teleiophilia is, in fact, what most people think of as being the social norm.
It’s sexual attraction to “fully grown” adults, generally eighteen to late thirties.
Mesophilia is another category, which is commonly accepted as socially normal
It’s the sexual attraction to middle aged adults, in their forties and fifties.
Both of these refer to an aspect of a persons sexual orientation, which hinges on physical characteristics normally associated with recognized age groups.
Every single human being who has a sexual orientation, has some form of chronophilia.
Are people who like 18 to 39 year olds lacking a sexual orientation?…No.
…And the same holds true for nepiophiles, pedophiles, hebephiles and ephebophiles [as well as gerontophiles].
This is simply their sexual orientation.
