It is unclear what "many" means. And what is meant by "pedophile". And such questions are psychologically conditioned by "pedoysteria" that has struck society like a kind of fashion. When the issues of sexual contacts between adults and children began to be publicly discussed in the media and became a convenient tool for hype, and the "fight against pedophiles" became a tool for self-promotion. This problem has always occurred, but it was never number one or ten, but it was very much hyped.

And at the same time it was somehow overlooked that more than 90% of child rapists are not pedophiles "by conviction" but simply drunken immoral types.

Daria, brought here our dialogue from the comments so that the reader could understand the answer.

1) Why "a lot"? What is a lot / little criterion for you regarding pedophiles?

2) Who do you call "pedophiles"? If those who are ONLY sexually attracted to immatures is one thing (and rather psychiatry). If you are talking about men experiencing sexual attraction, INCLUDING 14-15 year old girls, this is a completely different story. - Daria, then this is probably not about pedophilia, - if we are talking about those who were sexually abused in childhood.

DARYA IVANOVA: - Recently there was a question on question.ru that received more than 80 answers from people who were abused by pedophiles in childhood, from which we can conclude that there are a lot of pedophiles. In addition, I just watched the film "in the spotlight", which also shows the terrifying problem of pedophilia.

EVGENY YAKOVLEV: - Sexual abuse of children - most often committed by relatives and people from the inner circle of the family ... And this is definitely not about some particular painful addiction specifically to children.

The truth is that although sexual attraction to underexamined puberty is culturally taboo, it is part of normal sexuality. That's it. Like-dislike. You can very, very hard, even at the level of your psyche, displace it, and honestly not realize then. But in general it is.

Moreover, horror-horror - even to their own relatives.

And then the question is, what a person does with this .

This is the same as the desire to kill arises, perhaps, in everyone at some point. And in the same way, the question of what a person with this desire does.

With regard to children - is determined

  • the common culture in which the family lives

  • level of control and openness, trust, contact of the child with all older family members

  • the level of sexual education of children - because when a child understands what is called, - and can clearly speak about it, - what they are trying to do with him, - and can clearly name it, - understands his boundaries in relation to his body (and not only) and the right to defend them, - the likelihood that he will become a victim of sexual inclinations CRASHES.

Accordingly, how good / bad it is with these things, so also with the sexual protection of a particular child.

That is, it is not a question of proliferating vampires, werewolves or perverts, I think.
