Etymology and history

.The word comes from the Greek: παιδοφιλία (paidophilia): παῖς (pais), "child" and φιλία (philia), "friendship". Paidophilia was coined by Greek poets either as a substitute for "paiderastia" (pederasty),[21] or vice versa.^ At minimum, if it's same-sex adult/child sex then it's homosexual and vice versa.
  • Homosexuals and the Pedophile Connection 2 February 2010 16:41 UTC www.freerepublic.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Therefore, one thing is clear, namely that either processes leading to same-sex attraction increase the likelihood of sexual interest in children or vice versa.
  • Homosexinfo - Sexuality - Homosexuality, Child Molestation, Pedophilia and Hebephilia 3 February 2010 14:52 UTC www.homosexinfo.org [Source type: Academic]

The term paedophilia erotica was coined in 1886 by the Viennese psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing in his writing Psychopathia Sexualis.[22] .The term appears in a section titled "Violation of Individuals Under the Age of Fourteen," which focuses on the forensic psychiatry aspect of Child Sexual Offenders in general.^ Eight out of ten crimes by convicted sex offenders and/or child molesters in their own homes were forcible rapes or sexual assaults.

.After listing several typologies of sexual offender, Krafft-Ebing then mentioned one final typology, which he refers to as a "psycho-sexual perversion": paedophilia erotica.^ The term paedophilia erotica was coined in 1886 by the Viennese psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing in his writing Psychopathia Sexualis .

He noted that he had only encountered it four times in his career and gave brief descriptions of each case, as well as noting they all have 3 traits in common:
  1. Their attraction is persistent (Krafft-Ebing refers to this as being "tainted")
  2. The subject's primary attraction is to children, rather than adults.
  3. The acts committed by the subject are typically not intercourse, but rather involve inappropriate touching or manipulating the child into performing an act on the subject.

In 1908, Swiss neuroanatomist and psychiatrist Auguste Forel wrote of the phenomenon, proposing that it be referred to it as "Pederosis," the "Sexual Appetite for Children." Similar to Krafft-Ebing's work, Forel made the distinction between incidental sexual abuse by person's with dementia and other organic brain conditions, and the truly preferential and sometimes exclusive sexual desire for children. However he disagreed with Krafft-Ebing in that he felt the condition of the latter was largely ingrained and unchangeable.[23]

Diagnosis

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (F65.4) defines pedophilia as "a sexual preference for children, boys or girls or both, usually of prepubertal or early pubertal age."[1] Under this system's criteria, a person 16 years of age or older meet the definition if they have a persistent or predominant sexual preference for prepubescent children at least five years younger than them.[27]
.The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) outlines specific criteria for use in the diagnosis of this disorder.^ The APA 's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition, Text Revision gives the following as its "Diagnostic criteria for 302.2 Pedophilia": [ 23 ] [ 24 ] .
