Brongersma mentions that a 18-year-old boy called Alcide told Schérer:
"Sex with others? Yes, I began having it very early, and I felt much closer to the people I slept with than to my mother and father, even though my relationship with my parents isn't especially bad. I started doing it with my little female cousin when I was nine; later, at eleven, it was with a man.
In the beginning, in the relationships, I was mainly interested in tenderness (...) As for sexual pleasure, at first that was maybe less important than it became later (...) I like to sleep with someone and to be caressed."
Schérer then asked him, "Do you have any thoughts about something which has always been poorly understood: the sexual feelings of immature children?"
Alcide replied: "The physical excitement of sleeping with someone is the same, absolutely the same, at all ages, before and after maturity. I don't believe that my desire is stronger now than it was earlier. (...) In those days I didn't ejaculate, but the feeling was equally good. I got a hard-on and liked being touched."'
