Who are paedophiles?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Paedophiles are persons who practice paedophilia. They are present at every social and economic level and are very often respected members of the community. They can be close relatives or friends of the victim. They are the people who seem content to fantasize in the safety of their homes and find a sense of fulfilment in sexual activities with pre-pubescent children (children in the age group of 6-12 years).

Many of these offenders have extensive collections of child pornography or child erotic materials that feeds their fantasy. This may consist of photographs, toys, slides or video tapes. The paedophile collector can either be one who builds and views his collection in a very secretive manner or one who displays such material to others to make a profit.

He may use such collections:

  • to lower the inhibitions in a victim and introduce him to the possibilities of sex with an adult.
  • for his own gratification.
  • to blackmail his victims into further sexual activity.
