Heterosexual and homosexual males who erotically preferred physically mature partners were compared with respect to the erotic impact of the nonpreferred age groups (of the preferred gender) and the nonpreferred gender. Erotic impact was assessed by phallometric test of erotic gender and age preferences. This measures penile volume changes during the presentation of potentially erotic stimuli. Homosexual males who preferred physically mature partners responded no more to male children than…

Identifying sexual preferences in intrafamilial and extrafamilial child sexual abusers

Twenty-seven erotic and sexually neutral movie clips were shown to 191 men, consisting of 62 heterosexual intrafamilial child sexual abusers, 57 heterosexual and 25 homosexual extrafamilial child

Sexual Arousal Patterns of Bisexual Men

B bisexual men did not have strong genital arousal to both male and female sexual stimuli, and most bisexual men appeared homosexual with respect to genital arousal, although some appeared heterosexual.

The proportions of heterosexual and homosexual pedophiles among sex offenders against children: an exploratory study.

The resulting proportion of true pedophiles among persons with a homosexual erotic development is greater than that in persons who develop heterosexually, which suggests that androphilic males have a greater propensity to offend against children.

Gender-Specificity in Sexual Interest in Bisexual Men and Women

It is suggested that self-identified bisexual men and women demonstrate a truly bisexual pattern of sexual interest, characterized by greater other-sex attraction and less gender-specificity than is true for gay men and lesbians.

Gender-Specificity in Sexual Interest in Bisexual Men and Women

The present study assessed the gender-specificity of sexual interest of bisexually-identified men and women, compared to gay men and lesbian women. Utilizing viewing time as a measure of sexual

exual arousal patterns of bisexual men revisited

Examination of arousal patterns among bisexual men found that such men exhibit substantial genital arousal to both male and female erotic stimuli, suggesting that they identify as bisexual for reasons other than their genital arousal pattern.

The Effects of Gender and Relationship Context Cues on Responsive Sexual Desire in Exclusively and Predominantly Androphilic Women and Gynephilic Men

Results suggest that responsive sexual desire may be more closely associated with self-reported than genital arousal patterns, and relationship context cues are thought to be important for responsive desire.

The Third Backdoor: How the DSM Casebooks Pathologized Homosexuality

ABSTRACT This study argues that institutional psychiatry’s pathologizing stance on homosexuality persisted after 1973, when the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the



The female child as a surrogate object

It was tested that males with nondeviant erotic preferences are generally prone to react in a sexual way to female children, and only the pubic region, and to some degree the buttocks, elicited clearly distinctive reactions.

Experimental analysis of pedophilia.

Pedophilia and heterosexuality vs. homosexuality.

There was a large difference between the proportion of prevalences of heterosexual vs. homosexual offenders against children on the one hand and the proportional prevalence of gynephilia vs. androphilia, which suggests that the development of erotically preferred partner sex and partner age are not independent of each other.

Homosexual Molestation of Children/Sexual Interaction of Teacher and Pupil

It appears that teachers who practice homosexual acts are between 90 to 100 times more apt to involve themselves sexually with pupils than teachers who confine themselves to heterosexual acts.

Phallometric diagnosis of pedophilia.

The sensitivity of the phallometric test for pedophilia or hebephilia in complete nonadmitters is probably greater than or equal to 55% but is certainly less than 100%.

The courtship disorders

Testing parts of the hypothesis that voyeurism, exhibitionism, toucheurism and frotteurism, obscene telephone calling, and at least some cases of the preferential rape pattern are all based on the same disturbance showed that exhibitionists who denied toucheuristic activity or tendencies responded more to touCheuristic stimuli than did controls.
