The young paedophiles who say they don’t abuse children

Some paedophiles say they would never abuse children. But what support is there for people like this and how should society treat them to prevent abuse happening?

Warning: Due to the subject matter, there are disturbing details in this article.

Adam messaged a few days before we were due to meet for the first time.

I’ll let you know what colour top i’m wearing or something so you can recognise me. Although I’ll just be the creepy looking guy 😀 lol.

It was the kind of place that would be packed full of people enjoying two-for-one cocktails on Saturday nights, but Adam just wanted tap water.

He was clearly nervous.

In his early 20s, but he could pass for younger. Slight and fresh-faced. Brown hair, clear skin and softly spoken. Not “creepy looking” at all.

He describes himself as “normal” and says he likes to hang out with friends, go travelling and play video games. On the surface, it’s hard to argue with his self-description.

But he has a secret.

“Adam” isn’t his real name. He didn’t want us to use that, though he insists he’s never done anything illegal.

But he is a paedophile.

That term is widely used today. It’s used interchangeably with child sex abuser by the public – you can find it in many news reports describing the actions of molesters.
