Pedophilia - other research
Angelides, Steven, The Emergence of the Paedophile in the Late
2005, University of
explores the cultural and historical conditions structuring the
emergence of the category of the 'paedophile' in Western discourse in
the latter part of the twentieth century. It argues not only that the
'paedophile' was an outgrowth of social and political power struggles
around questions of normative masculinity and male sexuality, but also
that homophobia played a central role in its formation. In addition to
regulating social and intimate relations between men, woman and
children, the category of the 'paedophile' was homosexualized in order
to demarcate 'normal' from 'pathological' masculinities.

Dolan, Kathryn J., Review
The business of talking about the biological bases of human social
behavior is difficult, not only because of the tremendous scientific
challenge in identifying and manipulating variables for hypothesis
testing, but also because of the social and cultural milieu of
scientists which influences even scientific concepts of phenomena.
The same can be said about the business of studying
"adult/child sexual behavior" in humans. Combining the two
may have more than additive effects. This volume can be seen as an
attempt to broaden the base of scientific inquiry into human
pedophilia, by including data from other species, other societies,
and other historical times

Most of the lay and professional literature
although voluminous, reflect a narrow anthropo-, ethno-, and
chronocentrism that precludes any real understanding of the topic
with anything more than the preconceptions of our times. [...]
[...] This volume adds to this data base by including new,
biosocial contribution from the perspectives of history, political
science, sexology, biology, primatology, anthropology,
experimental and developmental psychology, and psychiatry. What
results is a transspecies, transcultural, and transhistorical
perspective that gives new biosocial insights into the roots of
pedophilia as the phenomenon is found in contemporary

Can science give the answer? No, regrettably not, because all those
fears, absurd laws, imprisonment, flawed studies and behavior-changing
‘therapies’ are not founded in good science. It is – and this my statement
– ideology - I mean a false ideology.
And here is my question for the Ipce Meeting and the
reader: How to combat false ideology?

If I want to
distinguish two periods [...], I mark 1987 as the dividing line.
[Summarized:] Since that year, the media weekly mentioned sexual abuse
of children and pedophilia, before scarcely known by society and
psychologists, presented as a monstrosity.
The other period I distinguish starts in 1950 with Kinsey's report, goes
via the permissive year 1968 to the early eighties with its welfare. And
than, [after 1987], the period of the fall of the communists in the East
[of Germany] until 2003.
There are significant differences in the way of speaking in both
periods, a difference that has had consequences for our work as
psychologists [...]. Also psychologists felt a pressure to prosecute in
our work, and had to adapt their way of speaking.

Mr C. Petty - December 2005
Analysis reveals how the dominant positivist approach to
paedophilia research embeds and perpetuates moral and often prejudicial
positions that in turn influence the validity of empirical findings and
theory, and tend to marginalise contradictory evidence.
[... I]t appears that the framework opens a discursive space in which
the psychological dimensions of paedophilia may be problematised in ways
that are less susceptible to implicit prejudice and bias, and therefore
empirically more sound. The implications hereof for research, theory and
psychotherapeutic intervention in the area of paedophilia are discussed

the fact that most of those effected find them helpful, the question
arises as to what extent pedophile self-help groups are worthy of social
support (e.g. making space available, club memberships, etc.). In the
media, pedophile self-help groups are sometimes categorically
characterized as criminal rings. Based on the author's experience, there
are some serious pedophile self-help groups which incorporate expert
psychological care (e.g. in Frankfurt) that certainly do not constitute
criminal organizations, and which are worthy of support.
