"Men who are otherwise conventional in their sexual interests and behaviour can be sexually aroused by pedophilic stimuli. In a study using both self-support and penile plethymographic measures, one-quarter of people drawn from a community sample showed or reported pedophilic arousal.

The investigators found that this abnormal arousal was correlated with conventional arousal, that is:

the more aroused the people were to adult heterosexual pictures, the more aroused they were to the pedophilic pictures.

Although this finding may be disturbing to us, it highlights the importance of the distinction made by the DSM and health professionals in general between fantasy and behaviour."

Eminent source: "A World Health Organization report (1986) states that pedophilia may or may not result in child sexual abuse and should not be used synonymously with child sexual abuse."[3] Jillium 22:07, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
