Shedding light on the dark field

IN AN office in Epsom in southern England, the phone rings. Calls come in from men who have been arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children; those who are fathers will probably have been barred from seeing their children unsupervised until their trials. Or the caller may be a mother whose adolescent son has been charged with molesting a child; if he has siblings social workers may insist that the family is broken up. Some calls are from men desperate to talk to someone about their own sexual desire for children, and terrified that without help they may act on them.  Full Article

This is an okay article that ends up being too ambiguous by its conclusion. I do agree with some points including the need to achieve a greater understanding of attraction. Unlike the article I would not suggest focusing on attraction to prepubescent youths. Instead focus on building a baseline for what the limits of “standard” human attraction is and everything existing within said limits that are accepted by societies around the world.

* By standard I mean the point where something about a person is clear enough that it can easily be noticed as an attractive or unattractive characteristic/trait/feature of an individual. By finding the limits for all these things it is possible on the low end (earlier stages of life development) and upper end (later years in life) to determine when these are first noticed and when they begin to fade.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
