Is “Pedophilia” Normal in Adult Men?

I have studied a number of studies that have tested how widespread pedophilic interest is in adult males in the lab. The tests show various things. The results can be summed up below.

83% of men react strongly to adolescent girls
54% react to little girls
20% show a “pedophilic” response – strong response to little girls as strong or stronger than their reaction to adults
1% are preferential pedophiles

Men’s sexual attraction to adolescent females.

Several studies have shown that the rate is actually higher than listed above.

One study found that 100% of males react strongly to all females age 13+

Another study found that 83% of Italian military recruits reacted strongly to 13 year old girls.

Another study found that all adult men react to girls age 16-17 at the same rate as they reacted to older women. Reactions to girls age 13-15 were less but were still 70-90% of maximum.

I do not care at all if men are turned on by teenage girls because when a  man tells me he is turned on by teenage girls, to me that just means he’s normal.

You notice that feminists have a real problem with this idea that men are turned on by teenage girls.

Men with sexual attraction to little girls.

Next comes attraction to little girls, a time bomb of a discussion. But even this study found that 53% of normal men are physically aroused by little girls. I am sure that is shocking to most people. However, I have seen other studies in which much higher percentages were reported.

Two reported that all men were attracted to little girls. In one group, the men were aroused by females aged 7-12 and in the other to females age 2-12.

Another study found that 90% of men were turned on by girls age 2-12.

I am not sure if the two studies simply aggregated that 2-12 group together and tallied up the group as a whole or if they found that men were attracted to girls at every age of that group. I find it stunning that men would be turned on by very little girls, but anything is possible.

The one study that broke little girls down by age found men attracted to girls aged 7-12 but no attraction below age 7, which is logical to me. The attraction to girls age 7-12 ranged from 10-60%, with declining attraction as the girls got younger. This also seems logical to me. I find the idea that men are attracted to girls age 7-12 understandable, but I can’t stomach the idea that normal men are attracted to girls age 2-6. That’s just crazy. Normal men are not babyfuckers.

Men with both strong sexual attraction to mature females and strong or pedophilic attraction to little girls.

Now we come to the most shocking realization of all, that anywhere from 20-26% of all men test “pedophilic” in the lab. That means that they are as attracted to little girls just as much or more than they are attracted to mature females. That is a very high level of attaction to little girls; in fact, it is as high as the attraction that actual preferential pedophiles experience.

One wonders why 20-25% of all men are not seeking out child porn or molesting children. I assume that if you are maximally or highly attracted to mature females, even if you are turned on by little girls at a high level, you would probably just ignore or even suppress your attraction to little girls and simply focus on mature females instead. You would do this because attraction to little girls, not to mention having sex with them, is seen as anywhere from societally unacceptable to say the least to a criminal act of the worst sort.

Men with preferential pedophilic sexual attraction to little girls.

And here we find a critical difference: the difference between a preferential pedophile and a man with a mere pedophilic response. The difference is that the former is not turned on by mature females at all, while the latter is strongly to maximally attracted to them. The preferential pedophile is a man who is very turned on by little girls but has little to no interest in mature females. So the only way he can fulfill his sexual orientation is by committing a crime.

Preferential pedophiles are dangerous for this very reason. This is because the only thing the gets them off is little girls, and mature females do nothing for them. In order to fulfill his sexual desires, the preferential pedophile has to have sex with a little girl, a serious crime. And preferential pedophiles are much more likely than men with both strong pedophilic and mature attractions to be seriously wrapped up in fantasies about sex with little girls to the point where they are fantasizing about sex with little girls and masturbating to those fantasies a good part of their time.

In a word, the preferential pedophile is simply obsessed with having sex with little girls. The other 20-26% of men who react similar to pedophiles in regard to little girls have the advantage of being highly attracted to mature females also. Therefore, they can just blow off their antisocial pedophilic attaction and focus on the socially acceptable attraction to mature females.

This study found that 1% of men were preferential pedophiles. Another study found .1% or 1 in 1000 men were pedophiles. I am not sure which figure is correct, but it would probably not surprise me if 1% of all men were actual preferential pedophiles. Nevertheless, that is a shocking figure to behold. That means 1 million preferential pedophiles in the US alone. That means 340 preferential pedophiles in my small city alone.

A few conclusions:

All or almost all men are attracted to teenage girls. Such attraction is natural, normal and healthy. There is nothing wrong with it. It’s not sick or evil or pedophilic or any of those things, and anyone who says it is is either insane or retarded or both.

53-100% of all men are attracted to little girls but generally at a level substantially lower than their attraction to mature females. Therefore, being attracted to little girls, at least on a minor level, is completely normal in adult males. Even the low figure of 53% is still a majority, and one definition of normal is something that is done by a majority of the population. I would say it is completely normal to be attracted to little girls at a low level, but if you feel that way, it is probably not something you want to focus on or even think about much as there are much more pro-social ways to meet your sexual needs.

20-26% of all men are attracted to little girls at the same or greater level than mature females. That is, 1/4 – 1/5 of all men have a strong pedophilic response. Therefore, if someone comes to me and tells me that little girls turn them on, I am not necessarily concerned. What I would want to know is if mature females turn him on also.

There is a 95-96% chance that a man who is turned on by little girls is attracted to mature females just as much or at least very strongly. I would simply urge such a man to focus on his desires for mature females and preferably ignore or even suppress his desires for little girls, which are – let’s face it- -, antisocial. If you have two strong desires, one antisocial and one pro-social, why not substitute the pro-social one for the antisocial one?

The last conclusion, that 1% of men are preferential pedophiles, is shocking, but we will need to deal with it nonetheless. First of all, if preferential pedophilia is really that common, then we need to stop all of the pedophile witch-hunts and looking for pedophiles hiding under every bed. The truth is they’re everywhere. If they’re everywhere, we can’t exactly spend all of our time running around hysterically persecuting all of them, and if there are 1 million of them in the country, we cannot well put them all in jail or prison either.

These men need to set up an ongoing relationship with a therapist, the goal of which would be to try to keep them from offending. There are other ways for preferential pedophiles to satisfy their needs than molesting a little girl. Unfortunately one of those ways is via the use of child pornography, the use of which is nearly as illegal as molesting a girl. Given that the use of child pornography is very high among preferential pedophiles, this leaves us with a conundrum. We want to prosecute possession of child porn, but we can’t exactly put 1 million men in prison for doing so.

I have no solutions to these conundrums right now, but they should give you something to think about.

    I think I’m maximally sexually attracted to girls 16-22. That said, I’d roll in the hay with Christie Brinkley and she’s 61.

  2. Tulio

    Another thing as long as I’m being honest. I can find very young girls quite beautiful. Like I thought young Emma Watson in Harry Potter was very pretty. But in a totally non-sexual way. I’m also like this with guys. I have not the slightest sexual attraction toward men. But sometimes when I see a very attractive man, I sometimes want to look at him because my eyes like looking at attractive people, young, old, male or female. There is nothing sexual behind it at all. But the only sexual attraction I feel is for late teen – adult females.

  3. Tulio

    And one question, are gay men more likely to be attracted to young boys than straight men to young girls?

  4. Jason Y

    Again the problem is the predator instinct which is normal within a decent range, but when getting into deviant behavior would be psychologically unhealthy, dangerous to society, and plain evil.

    Of course men being attracted to 14 to 18 year old girls is normal, but can cause problems in certain jobs like teaching etc,, Most of the stuff done to demonize normal attraction to teenagers is an anti-male agenda obviously.

      I think a big problem when it comes to teenagers is respect. Because they still have a child like mind, 14 to 18 year old girls have to be around adults they respect. Some old man lusting after them will not win thier respect, and that man is also likely to get backstabbed.

      Also, the society in general hates older men lusting after teen girls, especially the daddy at home. It’s a big case of an ass beating or even a killing. Finally, you won’t win the respect of teenage boys for messing with teenage girls and they will come after you also to kick your ass.

        This may not be true in other cultures, like ones in the third world. If a man is very slick and assuming it’s not against the law to date of marry a 16 year old, then they might be able to get away with it.

        • Tulio

          I don’t fully understand why Western society freaks out so much about age gaps of more than 10 years. It may have something to do with feminism. It seems the more feminist a society is, the more opposition to men dating younger women. An older man in the US can get called a “pedophile” for lusting after a 19 year old. Maybe this is the case in Europe too, I don’t know. But I don’t think anyone would say such in the 3rd world.

        • Jason Y

          All older men lust after 19 year olds. Let’s not kid ourself.

          I think in the third world age is no big deal as far as the family, but the woman might dislike, though it may be against her will, marrying an older man whom looks old and cannot relate to her age group.

    I was just having this discussion a few days back.I belong to a few different political discussion boards and we were recently having a discussion on criminal penalties for men vis-a-vis women, especially where sex is concerned. I basically made a point that if I’m dealing with a 15 yr with enormous tits and/or a bubble ass, WHICH I WOULD NOT BE, that it’s really stretching things to say that I’m a sexual predator who’s attracted to children. There is a big difference between children and adolescents, but people love to throw words around.

    Anyone here watch “Modern Family?” A few years back, Ariel Winter basically exploded a few months after turning fifteen. It was fun to watch guys on the AVClub and other websites talk about how freaked out they were by her sudden “growth spurt” (if you will). The best was one poster who said that “(I) can’t watch this show anymore without expecting a visit from Chris Hanson.”

    • Jason Y

      A lot of adult women whom men find sexy have small tits or none and some of those women are also short.

      Basically the idea that men are seeking out tits is true but not true. If a man sees tits he’s excited as it’s a novelty, but he also likes small tits or none.

      • Tulio

        I’ve been told women see a big dick the way men see large breasts. It’s nice to have, but not necessary at all. Large breasts and deep cleavage excite me a lot, but if a girl has small beasts and there’s nothing else wrong with her, it doesn’t really take anything away from my attraction to her.

        • Jason Y

          So that’s why the whole idea of top freedom wouldn’t work, at least in the case of some women. Well, actually some men just get turned on by seeing a topless woman regardless of breast size.

    Just saw this article on Salon.

    It’s by a pedophile who has come out of the closet with his disposition. He does not believe in harming children and advocates that other pedos not touch children either. I feel sympathy for him. I don’t know this guy, but I believe that he did not choose his disposition. Like gays, I doubt shock therapy or any sort of conversion therapy is going to make their sexuality normal.

    As long as they don’t actually go out and harm a kid, I can’t bring myself to hate them if they have no choice in what they are attracted to. I truly believe that attraction is involuntary and we don’t choose it. There are certain types of women that just do it for me, and no amount of telling me not too would ever turn off my attraction for them.

    It reminds me of just how cold and cruel nature can be. Giving people a disposition that has no moral outlet. The only thing I could suggest for people like this is voluntary chemical castration. Just kill off all sexual desire. There are asexual people that live a happy and fulfilling life. Sexual desire is not necessary.

    Reading through the comments of the article is disheartening though. People that want to put a bullet through his head even though he made it clear he does not believe in sexual acts with kids. I think it was brave of him to come forward. It’s better that we figure out a way as a society to help them somehow than let that stuff fester in the dark corners and people turn into molesters because they weren’t given the guidance they needed to deal with their issue.

    • Jason Y

      Definitely the hate against pedos is scapegoating. I even saw a humor thing (or was it meant as serious?) on Facebook where it was suggested we should end animal testing and use pedos instead…

      Of course, that’s the extreme end of the spectrum where the other side was TV shows where pedos were baited into encounters with cops on live TV. But some of those guys simply liked teenage girls.

      In todays PC world, you can’t hate anyone except pedos (and sometimes teenage lovers), it’s open season on them

      • Jason Y

        I would blame a lot of the hate on pedos who never touch kids to homophobia. Hypermasculine men hate gays, pedos etc.. Some even hate teenage lovers, though liking teenagers is normal male sexual behavior.

    No peadoohilia is not normal in men. Only a small minority of men are attracted to prepubescents. The majority of men which are normal and healthy are not attracted to prepubescents.

    • Read the studies. 54-100% of all men respond sexually to prepubescent girls in the lab. The one study that broke it down found that most men did not respond very strongly to them. They responded a lot more strongly to mature females.

  8. John Muhleisen

    All normal men are attracted to sexually mature females, regardless of age.
