01) The Neurobiology and Psychology of Pedophilia: Recent Advances and Challenges

Thanks to flashraid99!

“Research found that the activations seen in heterosexual and homosexual pedophiles to child stimuli are nearly indistinguishable from those in heterosexual and homosexual healthy males to adult stimuli (Ponseti et al., 2012); this supports the assumption that pedophilia is primarily a sexual age preference similarly to teleiophilia. The activation pattern among heterosexual and homosexual pedophiles and healthy male teleiophiles includes the caudate nucleus, cingulate cortex, insula, fusiform gyrus, temporal cortex, occipital cortex, thalamus, amygdala, and cerebellum. Despite the similarity in activation patterns between pedophilic and teleiophilic men, the novel pattern classification technique has been successfully applied based on the presentation of preferred sexual stimuli and resulted in a mean accuracy of 95%, with 100% specificity and 88% sensitivity (Ponseti et al., 2012; Mohnke et al., 2014), thereby showing a promising new approach for classifying subjects.”


COMMENT from SUBMITTER:

[This text] could help prove pedophilia as normal and not a paraphilia, this is because both non pedophiles and pedophiles were activated by the child stimuli. Note that it does mention that they were still able to group pedophiles based on their preference. However I think this clearly indicates how society impact the preference, as biologically they did feel the same, but likely refused it due to the negative information on pedophilia. – flashraid99

It’s been known for some time, that people who cannot be classified as “pedophiles” still have involuntary responses of sexual arousal to prepubescent children, at a rather high rate.

They’re not pedophiles, by way of the fact that prepubescent humans are not preferred by them…However, they still cannot turn off their automatic stimulation, when faced with the sex organs of another human being, regardless of that other human beings age.

Personally…I’ve always thought it was bunk, that there is supposedly some biological switch that “turns off” sexual arousal to the genitalia [or other body part] of another…just because it is small, or hairless. The whole premise makes no sense.

In fact…I’d argue the gross, stinky hair and other developments that occur with the adult body, make the child body far more appealing…on average…

…But, I’m kind of biased…being a pedophile, and all. 😉

    Sorry, I just cannot read this without thinking are there really researchers out there being paid to write such biased, politically correct guff.

    In the conclusions: “Sexually offending and incarcerated pedophilic men show increased rates of left-handedness, have shorter stature, experience twice as many head injuries before the age of 13 as normal counterparts, and seem to have lower intelligence than teleiophilic men.”

    Is the following also true? Sexually offending and incarcerated teleiophilic men show decreased rates of left-handedness, have taller stature, experience half as many head injuries before the age of 13 as normal counterparts, and seem to have higher intelligence than pedophilic men. Or, is the following also true? Non-offending pedophilic men show increased rates of left-handedness, have shorter stature, experience twice as many head injuries before the age of 13 as normal counterparts, and seem to have lower intelligence than teleiophilic men.

    It is not clear to me from the article, what the authors mean by ‘child sexual abuse’. Does the term include the act of solely looking at child erotica? Does the term include an act carried out by individuals who are not sexually attracted to children, but who acted opportunistically within the family home?

    Why is it taking so long for everybody to realise, paedoxeuality is as valid as any other sexuality?

    The article is littered with phrases such as victims, abuse, mental disorder, offender, intellectual impairment, psychiatric disorder, pedophilic disorder, neurocognitive weakness, etc. To my mind, these are the words of Nazi eugenicists, or, of DSM authors quantifying the degree to which homosexuality was a mental illness back in the 1970s.

    The only way gays ended the discrimination meted out to them via changes in the law, was to form groups and confront the discrimination in real life. Discrimination of paedophiles will persist so long as we continue to operate in the virtual world, hiding as we do behind our computer screens firing blanks.

      I’m sure there are other entries in this series, which are imperfect…I’m sorry anyone thinks this is not up to standards…but, it did offer us another confirmation, of “normal” people finding the young sexually appealing.

      I agree…it’s going to take real world force, in order to change things.

    No need to apologise Steve. I am railing against such articles (and the article to which they refer), which appear to be sophisticated objective pieces on the surface, but which let paedophobia, political correctness and media-induced societal hysteria obscure the reality. This is not science.
