01) Being Sexually Attracted to Minors: Sexual Development, Coping With Forbidden Feelings, and Relieving Sexual Arousal in Self-Identified Pedophiles

“Abstract

This article aims to provide more insight into pedophilic attraction and risk and protective factors for offending in nonclinical pedophiles. Fifteen participants were interviewed about sexuality, coping, and sexual self-regulation. Many participants struggled with acknowledging pedophilic interest in early puberty and experienced psychological difficulties as a result. Furthermore, many committed sex offenses during adolescence when they were still discovering their feelings. Early recognition of risk factors and early start of interventions seem vital in preventing offending. Moreover, results suggest that risk for offending can be diminished by creating more openness about pedophilia and by providing pedophiles with social support and control.”

    The article was (2015) authored by three psychologists, Messers Houtepen, Sijtsema, and Bogaerts, based at Tilburg University in The Netherlands, and as far as I can tell can, costs US$44 to access for a maximum 24-hour period. No need for me to do that because the abstract tells me all I need to know.

    The Abstract tells me that minor-attracted individuals have unacceptable mental disorders, that minor-attraction is an invalid sexuality to have, that minor attracted individuals must be monitored and controlled and incarcerated, that minors are asexual and could never desire sexual contact in any situation, that it is perfectly OK for society to demonise and terrorise paedosexuals.

    Messers Houtepen, Sijtsema, and Bogaerts simply echo master-race rhetoric: Utopia is within our grasp if only we can exterminate the Jew …

    Psychologists continue to be the primary cause of sexual orientation discrimination across Western society. Religion comes a close second.

        Thanks for the link Steve.

        Until psychologists employ a way more objective, scientific approach to the subject, and stop using politically correct narrative, they will never earn any respect in my eyes.

        “Disclosure of sexual interest is a highly frightening activity for many pedophiles.
        Even when they do find the courage to seek help, resources to provide pedophilic individuals
        with sufficient help are currently lacking. … As a consequence, knowledge about pedophiles who have no criminal record or have not sought professional help is lacking.” Quelle surprise!

        The authors suggest that between 3% and 9% of males are in some way sexually attracted to children. That works out as half a million men in Holland are that way inclined, yet their ‘research’ is based on a sample size of 15 men only, and two of these were hebephilic in their sexual orientation.
