http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedophilia

Pedophilia is the sexual attraction by adults to prepubescent children (13 and under). To be a pedophile you have to be at least 16, the attraction has to be to children at least 5 years younger than you and it has to last for more than 6 months. Do you think someone who enjoys loli or shotacon is a pedophile?

The causes for it are unknown, but there's a basic theory for it. I think a very good way to understand pedophilia is to look at the priests at the Catholic Church (at least 10% are pedophiles). They are expected to be celibate all their lives. Pedophiles are usually people who haven't had much sexual activity with adults or anyone their own age, and so they never properly develop their sexuality.

One of the worst pedophiles in the history of the Catholic Church, Oliver O'Grady, is a very good example of how severe this mental disorder can be and how it happens. He had an extreme case of pedophilia which caused him to spend more time figuring out how to get to children than doing anything else, and he molested and raped hundreds of children (including a 9-month old baby) throughout his entire time as a priest. With his case, it became his obsession. He would do absolutely anything to get to his victims, including seducing and sleeping with their mothers. He was an "exclusive" pedophile, which means he did not have any attraction whatsoever to any men or women, only children under 13. When he was 10, he was molested by a priest himself, and later on, his older brother began molesting him as well. And he does not describe it as "abuse," he says he was uncomfortable with his brother molesting him at first, but then later started getting curious and enjoying it. So from 10-15, right when he was hitting puberty, all this stuff was happening to him. He was supposed to become a priest, which means he would be expected to stay celibate his whole life, never get married and never be in any real relationships. These things added together to horribly corrupt his sexuality and it was never allowed to develop properly, and the result was his extreme case.


Several researchers have reported correlations between pedophilia and certain psychological characteristics, such as low self-esteem and poor social skills. Beginning in 2002, other researchers began reporting a series of findings linking pedophilia with brain structure and function: Pedophilic (and hebephilic) men have lower IQs, poorer scores on memory tests, greater rates of non-right-handedness, greater rates of school grade failure over and above the IQ differences, lesser physical height, greater probability of having suffered childhood head injuries resulting in unconsciousness, and several differences in MRI-detected brain structures. They report that their findings suggest that there are one or more neurological characteristics present at birth that cause or increase the likelihood of being pedophilic. Evidence of familial transmittability "suggests, but does not prove that genetic factors are responsible" for the development of pedophilia.


The really important part there is pedophiles tend to be anti-social and have low self-esteem. So they are people who are not going to be able to get alot of dates and be sexually active normally.

There is no cure for pedophilia, but there are treatments. Like castration, which is what I think should be done to any pedophile who proves they can't control themselves and offends more than once.

What are your thoughts on how pedophilia happens and how we should deal with it?

Quick stats for the US only:
*Approximately 15% to 25% of women and 5% to 15% of men were sexually abused when they were children. And the numbers are still growing.
* 1 of 5 girls and 1 of 6 boys will be molested before their 18th birthday.
* 90% of all sexual assaults against children are committed by someone whom the victim knew.
* The typical sexual predator will assault 117 times before being caught.
* The re-arrest rate for convicted child molesters is 52%.

Do you think there has been a rise in pedophilia this last couple of decades? Pedophilia obviously must have always existed, but now it seems like it's so common, there is so much child prostitution going on in Asia and Europe, and child pornography is extremely popular. Maybe because it only recently started getting alot of attention we're just starting to realized how big of a problem it is. Child prostitution definitely has gone way up in the last couple of decades:

*The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) estimate that 2 million children are exploited in prostitution or pornography every year.
*An estimated 12,000 Nepalese children, mainly girls, are trafficked for sexual commercial exploitation each year within Nepal or to brothels in India and other countries.
*Some 84 % of girls in prostitution interviewed in Tanzania reported having been battered, raped or tortured by police officers and sungu sungu (local community guards). At least 60% had no permanent place to live. Some of these girls started out as child domestic workers.
*UNICEF estimates that there are 60,000 child prostitutes in the Philippines and many of the 200 brothels in the notorious Angeles City offer children for sex.
*In El Salvador, one-third of the sexually exploited children between 14 and 17 years of age are boys. The median age for entering into prostitution among all children interviewed was 13 years. They worked on average five days per week, although nearly 10% reported that they worked seven days a week.
*In Vietnam, family poverty, low family education and family dysfunction were found to be primary causes for CSEC. Sixteen per cent of the children interviewed were illiterate, 38 % had only primary-level schooling. Sixty-six per cent said that tuition and school fees were beyond the means of their families.
*In Sri Lanka, children often become the prey of sexual exploiters through friends and relatives. The prevalence of boys in prostitution here is strongly related to foreign tourism.

Child prostitution has become a huge tourist attraction worldwide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrzVxO9CHgo

Now it's very common in many Asian and European countries to have a "child prostitution industry." I don't think it was like this 50 years ago.


With the millions of pedophiles in the world, child pornography has become a multi-billion dollar industry. And the rise of technology has made it possible for more and more child pornography to be made and distributed. And it's getting worse all the time, like the recent discovery of popular child pornography involving children as young as five in bondage and forced into bestiality. Millions of downloads of this type of material are being made daily. It is scary that this many people find children being extremely sexually abused in the most disgusting ways enjoyable.

Right now, I think pedophilia is one of the world's biggest problems.

Geez, What's with you and the pedophile threads? Anyways

On topic:


1. People who enjoy Shota and Loli aren't pedophiles (Unless they do look at real CP), As the characters aren't real, And anyways, Don't all anime characters look 13-?

2.Pedophilia probably sprung from some mental defect or soemthing. Pedophilia, Though the system could improve, Is good enough as is. Arrest the bastards.

3.Yes, Since of the internet, Pedophile material is easier to find. I mean, Look at /b/.

/b/ is okay example i suppose but when i was 10 i heard about list sites that where all over the place, also lime wire still has cp all over the place and i have tried reporting again and again with no avail due to ceratian key words you type in or something. Sigh on being molested it's self i was molested as child when i was 10 and that is probably why I still don't have a gf or even a healthy relationship with a women/girl other than family members or co-workers. Also pedophilia it's self has been diagnosed as a mental disorder as well but i find it kinda hard to believe but who knows.

There's CP on limewire? Wow, that's pretty retarded.

You were molested at 10??? You should try to make an effort to find a relationship, being molested apparently makes it difficult for people, but you need to try.

I know how you feel, because I was molested by a relative since I was 7. The crappiest of it is, you can't report them. No matter how many are aware of it. When I look at men, the word 'pedophile' comes into my mind, it becomes a big turn off. I think that's why I have trouble of finding a love partner. But it's ok we are still young there's still time enough for us to find someone who loves us.

As for the pedophiles in the world I just sincerely hope they can die a horrid death and suffer everything their victims had suffered all together.

Well I'm just part of the pathetic 80% victims who didn't report it to the police. It's influenced by different factors. There's only one reason if you want to report it, to bring him to justice. But there are far more reasons why you can't report it, you gotta face the misery, the judgement, the world would know about it, your parents can't be proud of you anymore, everybody and everything will go mean on you, as if trying to brainwash letting you think you've just imagined whatever that had happened to you. And it's simply not worth it.

And when you are at a tender age, you really have no idea what is happening to you. As for me, I couldn't even remember what happened back then anymore, I just remember the suffer I got to endure afterwards. You aren't strong enough to fight back, your lack of vocabulary to express your feelings makes it worse.

At the first time when I told my mom when I was 12, she didn't believe me, she thought I was imagining things. How do you think I can convince anybody else (let alone the police) I can't even convince my own mom. It's not until a few years back while I was 16 I cried out loud in front my mom and I screams I can't endure it that she finally believe me.

What I want to say is, not everybody is strong enough or ready face all the judgement that's gonna throw to them.

Sorry for my poor grammar.

Yeah, I know about that 80% statistic, I can understand not reporting it when it happens because people are so young and confused. But it's really sad that when you do understand it, you can't bring them into justice very easily. You'd think family and friends would want them to be punished for what they did and feel bad for the victims, it's pretty ridiculous actually.

Why would they put a whole bunch of "judgments" against victims of sexual abuse who they're supposed to be helping, and what kind of judgments?

I read through all the informations through the internet, about the 80% and stuff. I thought to myself, I'm definitely NOT gonna be that majority, I AM going to report it. I even called my teacher, he gave me a phonenumber a officer. When I talked to him, I knew if I do it now, there's no turning back. But when I told my mom she said to me if I report it, everybody know about it, as in our whole family. And rather being sympathized, people will think you are stupid. Because people who hadn't been there first-hand wouldn't know WHY you get molested first place. She disencouraged me report it. You see, my mom is a very conservative chinese. And that relative was a man she knew growing up together with.

Besides, I have no proof, I'm the only talking. It happened years back. What can I do about it? Not everybody is informed as much as I do. And when so many don't believe it's just not worth it.

Right now, now I'm just living through misery everyday, trying to move on with my life because life goes on no matter what. It's stupid, I know, because now everyday I regret about what I could've done. But I think if I gone through it the second time, my decision might just end up the same, because all the difficulty i have to go through before appearing on court.

That's just ridiculously sad and stupid. If I had a kid who was molested I would be enraged and I wouldn't care whoever it was, I'd want them to be in jail. But people would think you were stupid instead? For being molested as a child? It's just insane, but I guess more conservative and traditional families wouldn't like something like this to get alot of attention.

How would that be a problem for traditional and conservative families? We don't blame child molestation on the children. One of my good friends was molested in a public classroom and no one feels it's her fault. We lovingly car for her, in fact it doesn't even get her down. There is healing from things like this. If anything I would argue that conservative and traditional families would be happier to seek justice and help their child through what happened to ease pain and bring about healing so the child isn't scarred.

I didn't mean all traditional and conservative families. Asian families that are very traditional, that just don't talk about these kinds of things, would not be very eager to make something like this known to be an issue in their family.
