Some minor attracted people, sexologists, psychiatrists and psychologists question the conceptual validity of this category, arguing that for the majority of men, heterosexual ephebophilia might be normative. One of the most frequent criticisms of "ephebophilia", is the plausibility of yet another chronophilia category. In this case, the category orients itself roughly to the beginning of the final Tanner Stage (5), and then ends in a developmental "no man's land" at around age 18/19. It has thus been proposed that ephebophilia be merged into teleiophilia, as a special attraction to those who are sexually mature but with less legal rights, has no basis in nature.
