Pedophilia – psychosexual disorder in which there is a preference for sexual activity with prepubertal children. Pedophiles are almost always males. The children are more often of the opposite sex (about twice as often) and are typically 13 years or age or younger; they may be within or outside the pedophile’s family. Sexual fantasies, looking, or fondling are more common than genital contact Read More…

  1. The Psychology of Sexual Orientation, Behavior, and Identity: A Handbook (Chap. 13 “Pedophilia”) by Louis Diamant, Richard D. McAnulty. 526 pgs.

    This comprehensive overview of research, issues, and theories relating to sexual orientation, behavior, and identity by experts in various disciplines is unique in providing both historical perspectives and a synthesis of the recent advances in understanding homosexuality and heterosexuality. Drawing from biological and psychological research, this major reference explores the major theories about orientation; summarizes recent developments in genetic and neuroanatomic research; considers the role of social institutions in shaping current beliefs; and discusses the social construction of gender, sexuality, and sexual identity. The handbook also describes sexual dysfunctions in ton-clinical populations, clinical disorders, and important social issues. Experts address the continuing controversy over the feasibility of altering sexual orientation; practical concerns such as disability and illness; new developments in treating sexual and personal problems within heterosexual and homosexual populations; and perspectives about sexual deviations today. This handbook is designed for the use of educators, students, and researchers in the social and behavioral sciences.

  3. Ethics and Sex (Chap. 10 “Pedophilia”) by Igor Primoratz. 214 pgs.
    This systematic study of the nature and moral significance of human sexuality explores in detail the major issues regarding sexual morality. Divided into two main parts, Part One presents a critical analysis of the key conceptions of human sexuality, including:* the view of sex as bound up with procreation and marriage* the romantic approach to sex* the understanding of sex as body language* the hedonist or â¬~plain⬔ sex view – the traditional distinction between natural and unnatural sex, and the notion of sexual perversion.Part Two discusses the most pertinent issues in sexual morality, such as monogamy, adultery, prostitution, rape, homosexuality, paedophilia and sexual harassment.In this stimulating and often controversial book, the author argues for a plainer view of sex and demonstrates that many of the prohibitions that make up conventional sexual morality cannot withstand critical scrutiny and should therefore be rejected. He claims that there are no sexual ethics, since sex has no particular moral significance.

  8. The Sexually Disturbed: Treating Psychosexual Disorders (Chap. 6 “Loretta: Incestuous Pedophilia, Nonexclusive Type”) by Averil Marie Doyle. 158 pgs. Book
    This volume describes the treatment of uniquely complex and profound sexual problems that the therapeutic community has been largely unsuccessful in treating. The reader is drawn to understand and even identify with the people experiencing sexual disturbance. This work is developed around a case study format, with chapters on specific psychosexual disturbances. In addition to presenting the treatment process as it is formulated in the mind of the therapist, Doyle offers a blueprint for therapy that makes specific treatment possible for clients with similar disorders.
