Paedophilia is sexual preference for children. Sexual contact with a child under 16 is an imprisonable offence. This usually involves men, and less often women, who have difficulty forming sexual relationships with adults. Many have themselves been abused as children. Homosexual and heterosexual types exist. Behaviour ranges from a superficially affectionate relationship with a known child to the homicidal rape of a strange one. Dangerous paedophiles require secure care and antilibidinal drugs.
