Problems of Research into Adult/Child Sexual Interaction
Problems of Research into Adult/Child Sexual Interaction is a critical review of research into adult-child sex, authored by Vern Bullough and Bonnie Bullough. The article also documents a number of historic "child abusers," such as Mahatma Gandhi.
- "ABSTRACT: Although adult child sexual behaviors have occurred in many different cultures throughout history, there has been little serious research on adult/child sexual interactions. Barriers to performing this research include legal restrictions along with the fact that researchers attempting to understand and explain adult/child sexual interaction risk being labeled as pedophiles. Despite this, it is crucial to find ways to do research with persons who resist adopting today's standards and attitudes."
