19 Paraphilias Paedophilia Intense sexual urges Sexually arousing fantasies Involving children

20 DSM IV & Paedophilia Recurrent sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving sexual activity (nt necessarily) with a pubescent child or children Offender must be 16yrs or older AND at least 5 yrs older than victim Genital touching, oral sex, or undressing Pedophiliac relationships rely on persuasion, guilt and friendship (Murray 2000)

21 Exploring Erotic Fantasies Represent our own world Psychological realm Thinking, dreaming, imagining occurs Without fear of reprimand Without social constraints

22 Exploring Erotic Fantasies Serve to sexually arouse Mental images Over long periods or Fleeting moments Hicks & Leitenberg 2001 Not culturally constrained or limited by age and gender

23 Erotic Fantasy Prevalence Males fantasise about sex 7 times per day Females: about sex 4 times per day Doskoch 1995 Fantasies important - enable to be free to indulge primitive lusts and brutish impulses that are unacceptable in reality Wilson 1997 Do fantasies remain in the fantasy realm?

24 Fantasy Spaces Fantasies don't always stay in fantasy realm Facilitated by: Socially acceptable physical environments (retail) Acceptable virtual environments (online) Consenting adults - fear of reprimand possible (Green 2001) Fantasies not static Cog rehearsal, transformation, maintenance, abandonment, reinforcement

25 The Virtual Space Pseudo reality space Hybrid twixt psychological & physical space Fantasy blended with reality Pornography - virtual space Voyeurs rather than active participants A gateway to sexual offending? No (Taylor & Quayle 2002) Porn may reinforce, update & strengthen erotic fantasy

26 Ready-Made Fantasies. Vanilla

27 Three Fantasy Spaces Fantasies co-exist between Psychological, Physical, and Virtual spaces Each space provides unique opportunity for Motivation Access Opportunity Fantasy & Reality inextricably linked "Doing" is dangerous when fantasy is non-consensual, unwanted, violent & illegal

28 Aetiology of Paedophilia Offenders frequently report disruptive early parent-child relationships, or childhood sex abuse (Hanson& Slater 1988) 60% offenders report childhood abuse (Cohen et al 2000) Many offenders try to justify / rationalise their abuse Cycle of abuse misappropriated Some offenders highly skilled and use their victimology

29 Behavioural Theories of Paedophilia Offenders develop sexual attraction to children Follows pairing of sexual arousal and child images Pairings often occur in adolescence Reinforced by masturbation (Barbaree 1990) Many offenders report isolation & loneliness Arising from inadequate childhood attachments (Ward 1996) Children as alternatives to adult connections

30 Preconditions Theory of Offending Finkelhor 1984 Sex with children emotionally & sexually satisfying Unable to meet sex needs / fantasies in appropriate ways Disinhibited behaviour at times of stress Paedophilia triggered by periods of low mood / depression as result of stress / distress / conflict (Pithers 1990) Offenders enter high risk behaviours to decrease negative feelings. Feelings return once rush has passed Self-loathing --> More offences --> Self-loathing

31 Combined Offending Space Model Wilson & Jones 2007 Important role of Internet in supporting, nurturing and normalising sexual fantasies Even extreme violent & illegal Assess if thinking leads to doing When does thinking lead to doing? Understand why offenders use children

32 Combined Offending Space Model OffendingSpace Psychological Fantasy Space Motivation Physical Real-world Space Access Virtual Pseudo-reality Space Opportunity Norms

33 Conversations with Sexual Offenders I guess fantasy is where I want it to go, what I can do for getting aroused to this thought As my fantasies grew my offending grew The Internet is designed purely for sexual thoughts I think your fantasies stay with what you've done and you re- visit A male may be abusing the hell out of a child... It's almost the very best of the actual fantasy on screen I think it (the internet) made me fantasise more. I don't think it made me offend more, but I suppose it made me do different things in the offences

34 Conversations with Sexual Offenders

35 Paedophilia Treatments Secure forensic units or prison Rehab programme Not compulsory. 25% uptake in prison Chemical castration for high testosterone offenders 15% of offenders on androgen programmes re-offend (Meinecke 1981) Poor compliance with medication in offenders (Barbaree & Seto 1997)

36 Behavioural Paedophilia Treatments Aversion Therapy Child sexual stimulus paired with aversive event Masturbatory Reconditioning Initiates sexual response to child material / thoughts. Once aroused, switch to appropriate image, continue until orgasm Really thinking of appropriate image??? Fewer ethical issues than version therapy

37 Relapse Prevention Offender taught a behavioural modification programme ID situations at high risk of offending Get out of high risk situation Learn from lapses ID factors that lead to relapses 2% success rate against relapse (Marques et al 2000)
