Paedophiles in Society Reflecting on Sexuality Abuse and Hope

Paedophiles in Society Reflecting on Sexuality Abuse and Hope By Dr Sarah D. Goode
Academic and cultural understandings of paedophilia tend to diverge into a ‘sexual liberation’ discourse and a ‘child protection’ discourse, each missing important insights from the other. This book goes beyond radical and conservative debates to set out a new understanding, arguing that paedophiles are not ‘outside’ culture or society but are part of our everyday human existence – and that sexual attraction to children is part of human sexuality. Firmly placing the needs and wellbeing of children first, Sarah Goode’s work is a challenging and thought-provoking response to contemporary anxieties over paedophilia and child sexual abuse. It addresses the need for information on paedophiles which does not assume that they are monsters, mad, evil or ‘other’ and which seeks to locate paedophiles in their everyday context, in society, arguing that these new understandings offer new ways to protect children from harm.
