  • Examining Self-Reported Physical Contact With Minors Among Pedophile Support Forum Users. [Journal Article]
    Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol. 2020 03; 64(4):299-314.Holt K, Liggett R, … Lee JR
  • Minimal research has considered the extent to which pedophile social support forum users disclose physical relationships with minors in the course of their posts. As these forums cater to those who express sexual interests in minors, the users may be at higher risk for contact offenses and require unique treatment and supervision. To address this gap in the literature, this study utilized a quant…
  • Multimodal neuroimaging measures and intelligence influence pedophile child sexual offense behavior. [Journal Article]
    Eur Neuropsychopharmacol. 2018 07; 28(7):818-827.Lett TA, Mohnke S, … Walter H
  • Pedophilia is a heterogeneous disorder for which the neurobiological correlates are not well established. In particular, there are no biological markers identifying individuals with high risk to commit child sexual offense (CSO). Pedophiles with CSO (P+CSO; N = 73), pedophiles without CSO (P-CSO; N = 77), and non-pedophilic controls (NPC; N = 133) were assessed using multimodal structural neuroim…
  • [Accomplices under influence, teachers-lovers, "Incestigators" or pimps… Who are females child abusers?] [Journal Article]
    Presse Med. 2017 Dec; 46(12 Pt 1):1144-1152.Cailleau V, Thirioux B, … Jaafari N
  • According to victimization surveys, the percentage of females among child abusers is much higher than 2 or 5% as usually reported in the devoted literature. The under-estimated percentage of child sexual abuses committed by females would result from the dissimulation of sexual acts within nursing care, a gender bias in favor of women among child protection system professionals and low disclosures…
  • The Hebephiliac: Pedophile or Teleiophiliac? [Journal Article]
    Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol. 2018 07; 62(9):2507-2526.Sea J, Beauregard E
  • The current study aims to fill the gap on hebephile sex offenders by comparing them to a group of pedophile offenders as well as a group of teleiophile offenders. The focus of the study is to examine the victims' and offenders' characteristics, the crime characteristics, and the modus operandi used by a sample of 111 male sex assaults currently serving a sentence for sexual crimes in Korea. Looki…
  • Homosexuality according to ancient Greek physicians. [Historical Article]
    Psychiatriki. 2017 Jan-Mar; 28(1):60-66.Laios K, Moschos MM, … Androutsos G
  • Homosexuality and pedophilia in ancient Greece greatly concerned many researchers who were mainly interested in highlighting the social aspect of this phenomenon in ancient Greek society. An important source on the subject was the paintings of a man and his lover in attic black and red figured pottery, up to the end of the 5th century BC. Another main source was the information that derived from …
  • Pedophiles in the Ultra-Orthodox Haredi Sector in Israel: Thought Processes Regarding their Actions. [Journal Article]
    J Child Sex Abus. 2017 May-Jun; 26(4):407-427.Hamo G, Idisis Y
  • This study explores thought patterns of Jewish Ashkenazi Ultra-Orthodox pedophiles in Israel and how they resolve the contradiction between their commitment to Jewish Law and having committed sexual offenses against minors. Ten adult men participated in this study. Using open semistructured interviews, their cognitive distortions before, during, and after the abuse were examined. Content analysis…
  • Karl Heinrich Ulrichs: First Theorist of Erotic Age Orientation. [Historical Article]
    J Homosex. 2017; 64(13):1850-1871.Janssen DF
  • The nomination of Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (1825-1895) as the first theorist of homosexuality may be placed in the oblique light of his eligibility for the nomination as the first theorist of erotic age orientation. In Ulrichs's pamphlets, "man-manly" homosexuality emerged as a particular age orientation, with a subsequent typological breakdown that, importantly, blended gender orientation and age o…
  • Inventing the Pedophile in the Journal of Homosexuality. [Comment]
    J Homosex. 2016; 63(3):456-60.Zaborskis M
  • This article serves as one of the supplementary pieces of this special issue on "Mapping Queer Bioethics," in which we take a solipsistic turn to "map" the Journal of Homosexuality itself. Here, the author examines one of the most controversial moments in the history of the journal, whereby a contributor was subject to governmental and popular rebuke for his scholarship on pederasty, pedophilia, …
  • Heterosexual Men's Ratings of Sexual Attractiveness of Adolescent Girls: A Cross-Cultural Analysis. [Journal Article]
    Arch Sex Behav. 2015 Nov; 44(8):2201-6.Bennett P, Lowe R, Petrova H
  • Following an identical procedure to the one we previously reported (O'Donnell, Lowe, Brotherton, & Bennett, 2014), we examined ratings of sexual attraction to photographs of (the same) adolescent girls (Tanner stages 3-4) labelled as either 14-15 years or 16-17 years old, women, and men. Ratings were made by Bulgarian heterosexual men by pressing buttons on a response box which recorded the ratin…
  • Suicide and the publicly exposed pedophile. [Journal Article]
    Malays J Med Sci. 2012 Oct; 19(4):50-6.Walter G, Pridmore S
  • CONCLUSIONS: This evidence strongly suggests that exposure or threatened public exposure of pedophilia and/or early or potential legal punishment creates a predicament, which may lead to completed suicide.
  • Assessment of implicit sexual associations in non-incarcerated pedophiles. [Journal Article]
    Arch Sex Behav. 2013 Nov; 42(8):1501-7.van Leeuwen ML, van Baaren RB, … Dijksterhuis A
  • Offences committed by pedophiles are crimes that evoke serious public concern and outrage. Although recent research using implicit measures has shown promise in detecting deviant sexual associations, the discriminatory and predictive quality of implicit tasks has not yet surpassed traditional assessment methods such as questionnaires and phallometry. The current research extended previous finding…
  • Towards a neurobiological model of offending. [Review]
    Clin Psychol Rev. 2011 Jul; 31(5):872-82.Mitchell IJ, Beech AR
  • In this paper we consider how disturbances in the neurobiological/neurochemical processes at a young age lead to problematic attachment styles in later life, and which can potentiate probability of offending behavior. In particular, we will contrast attachment and offending patterns of the more generalist type of offender (i.e., those who have a varied criminal career, committing both violent and…
  • Considering the pedophile subculture online. [Journal Article]
    Sex Abuse. 2010 Mar; 22(1):3-24.Holt TJ, Blevins KR, Burkert N
  • The development of the Internet and computer-mediated communications has fostered the growth of a wide range of deviant sexual behaviors along with deviant subcultures that support and approve of these behaviors. Some of these practices pose little risk to public safety, though acts such as pedophilia and the creation and distribution of child pornography have significant negative ramifications f…
  • Homicide-suicide in Konya, Turkey between 2000 and 2007. [Journal Article]
    J Forensic Sci. 2010 Jan; 55(1):110-5.Dogan KH, Demirci S, … Buken B
  • Homicide followed by the suicide of the murderer is a relatively rare lethal incident in which an individual kills another person and subsequently dies by suicide. Cases involving a homicide and a suicide in which death examinations and autopsies were performed at The Konya Branch of the Forensic Medicine Council between 2000 and 2007 were retrospectively investigated. During the studied time per…
  • Neurocognitive and personality factors in homo- and heterosexual pedophiles and controls. [Journal Article]
    J Sex Med. 2011 Jun; 8(6):1650-9.Kruger TH, Schiffer B
  • CONCLUSIONS: These alterations may be seen to be in line with the hypothesis of a perturbation of neurodevelopment in early life. These results enhance our knowledge about pedophilia-associated impairment in neurocognitive functioning and personality structure insofar as they allow a more detailed description of, and insight into, modulatory factors.
  • The political use and abuse of the "pedophile". [Journal Article]
    J Homosex. 2008; 55(3):350-87.Hunter J
  • The cognitive/affective construct designated by the term pedophile is delineated on the basis of how he is presented in the popular media. His salient characteristics are listed and then examined in the light of scientific and historical data. The pedophile is discovered to be a social construct that floats in the thin air of fantasy. Since the truth-value of the construct pedophile approaches ze…
  • Brain response to visual sexual stimuli in homosexual pedophiles. [Journal Article]
    J Psychiatry Neurosci. 2008 Jan; 33(1):23-33.Schiffer B, Krueger T, … Gizewski E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Central processing of visual sexual stimuli in homosexual pedophiles seems to be comparable to that in nonpedophile control subjects. However, compared with homosexual control subjects, activation patterns in pedophiles refer more strongly to subcortical regions, which have previously been discussed in the context of processing reward signals and also play an important role in addictive and stimulus-controlled behaviour. Thus future studies should further elucidate the specificity of these brain regions for the processing of sexual stimuli in pedophilia and should address the generally weaker activation pattern in homosexual men.
  • Defense styles of pedophilic offenders. [Journal Article]
    Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol. 2008 Apr; 52(2):185-95.Drapeau M, Beretta V, … Despland JN
  • This pilot study investigated the defense styles of pedophile sexual offenders. Interviews with 20 pedophiles and 20 controls were scored using the Defense Mechanisms Rating Scales. Results showed that pedophiles had a significantly lower overall defensive functioning score than the controls. Pedophiles used significantly fewer obsessional-level defenses but more major image-distorting and action…
  • Science or propaganda?an examination of rind, tromovitch and bauserman (1998). [Journal Article]
    J Child Sex Abus. 2000; 9(3-4):109-34.Dallam SJ
  • An article, “A Meta-analytic Examination of Assumed Properties of Child Sexual Abuse Using College Samples,” published in the July 1998 edition of the Psychological Bulletin resulted in an unprecedented amount of media attention and became the first scientific article to be formally denounced by the United States House of Representatives. The study's authors analyzed the findings of 59 earlier st…
