Children, Sexuality and Sexualization pp Cite as. Higonnet, , cf. Sparrman, b. This chapter explores the close connection between visuality, sexuality, children and adults.

Rania Matar photographs girls aged between eight and 13, letting them choose their own clothes and poses. She talks about growing up a tomboy, selfie culture — and why she gets annoyed when anyone says the pictures are sexual. D ress straps slip off shoulders, painted nails splay on hips.

One researcher who is arguing vociferously for the inclusion of hebephilia in the American Psychiatric Association 's revised diagnostic manual the DSM-V is University of Toronto psychologist Ray Blanchard.
To our knowledge, this is the first large study of the attractions of child-attracted men recruited in any manner other than their being charged with legal offenses. We recruited 1, men from websites for adults attracted to children. Men in our sample were highly attracted to children, and they were much less attracted to adults, especially to adult men. However, men varied with respect to which combination of gender and age they found most attractive.
