ARE ALL MEN PEDOPHILES? (2013): No But They're Hebephiles\Ephebophiles\Nympholepts

Here are some highlights and lowlights from the controversial documentary 

Studies have shown that teen sex is the most searched for type of pornography on the Internet.

The age that you first find the opposite sex attractive doesn't change, but it expands. For example, when you’re a teen you find teen girls attractive and as you age, teen girls remain attractive.  

The age of consent ranges from 9 to 20-years-old around the world. Interestingly, there’s no minimum age of consent in Saudi Arabia and Oman.

During the Stone Age, the average lifespan was approximately 30 years. And during the Neolithic age, which was between the Stone and Bronze Ages, the lifespan was 20 years; therefore, sex and childbearing couldn't be postponed for very long past puberty. Despite the fact that the lifespan of humans has increased dramatically, it’s still healthier to have a baby sooner than later.

Anthropological studies conducted by Napoleon Chagnon on primitive societies suggest that the average man finds 16-year-old females the most sexually attractive.

Mary was 12 or 15 when she gave birth to Jesus and the prophet Muhammed of Islam (صلى الله عليه وسلم) married Aisha when she was 6 and consummated the marriage when she was 9.

Bar Mitswa is when Jewish boys turn 13 and are considered men. And a Bat Mitswa is when Jewish girls turn 12 and are considered women.

As far back at 6000 BC, the average age of pregnancy was 13-years-old. Currently, the average age of pregnancy in western society is between the ages of 21 and 23.

Girls begin puberty at approximately 10-years-old and they reach maturity when puberty ends at approximately 16-years-old. However, western society has set the legal age at 18-years-old, which is when young men reach maturity. Consequently, 16-year-old girls are more sexually and mentally mature than 16-year-old boys, which is why girls seek older partners and that explains why the average woman is younger than her male partner.

Biologically, humans start experimenting with sexual intercourse at the age of 13-years-old.

The basis for the legal age being set at 18 is based on education. High school education ends around the age of 18. Consequently, underage sex is shunned, because it interferes with education.

However, western society has a fascination with teen girls, which is visible in the fashion industry and media. For example, the average age of a budding high fashion model is between the ages of 12 and 16. The average age of fashion models is 16. 16 is a special age because most women tend to gain wait upon reaching 16. New models are rarely chosen after the age of 16. We don’t need biology to tell us that 16-year-old girls are ready for sex, because the way they’re portrayed as sexual beings in the media should suffice as evidence.

Couric reported on Katie Couric's Notebook, “Half of girls between 14 and 19 confessed to having had sex at least once.”

More than 20% of American teen girls admit to sending nude photos (i.e., sexting).

Some cultures (e.g., in Africa, South America, India, etc.) that haven’t been affected by western standards, girls still get married at an early age. And in Japanese society the attraction to teenage girls is a “widespread cultural phenomenon (e.g., lolicon)” However, there is no society in the world that encourages sex with children before puberty.

There’s a difference between the general public term for pedophilia and the technical professional term of pedophilia. The public’s definition is associated with someone who’s sexually attracted to girls under the age of 18; however, the clinical definition of pedophilia is:
  1. A sexual preference for pre-pubertal or early pubertal children 
  2. For six months or more the person has acted on those urges or suffers from distress as a result of having the urges
  3. And the individual must be at least 16-years-old and at least five years older than the subject of desire
For example, hebephilia is when a man is attracted to adolescents or girls whom are approximately between the ages of 12 to 16-years-old; therefore, high school teachers who have sex with their students are not pedophiles. Since high school students have reached puberty, it’s considered hebophilia and the teachers are hebophiles - not pedophilia. 

The number of male teachers in one European country is a meager 1 in 8. The dropped is attributed to a fear that many male teachers will be accused of pedophilia. The misunderstanding between pedophilia and hebephilia has caused an unnecessary backlash against men. Men are not allowed to sit in playgrounds alone [e.g., A park that I frequently pass in Manhattan has a sign posted that forbids adult men from being in the park if they’re not accompanied by their own children.]

In an attempt to discourage pedophilia, Australia’s government has "banned" adult publications and films that feature women with "small breasts".

Child pornography is a $3 billion industry. 20% of all Internet pornography involves children under the age of 18; thus, since almost all men watch pornography, many men have been exposed to child pornography. However, it’s not considered child pornography when the images are used in the high fashion industry [or mainstream movies and high-brow art].

A 14-year-old New Jersey girl was accused of distributing child pornography after posting 30 explicit nude photographs of herself on the Internet.

Two Pennsylvanian girls who posted pictures of themselves in pajama bottoms and bra tops were charged with possessing child pornography and the distribution of child pornography. 

But 20% of teenagers in Western society admit to sexting, which translates to over 50,000,000 teens. That content could be considered child pornography even if the teen isn’t nude. In other words, any sexual activity, lewd conduct or erotic behavior that is exhibited by teens even when they're fully clothed could be considered child pornography. However, the average teen has no idea that they’re breaking the law. Consequently, 36% of child sex offenders in America are children.

Pedophilia will never be accepted by society, because it harms children, but sexual relations between adults and adolescents may eventually become re-accepted by modern society. 

Lastly from the documentary, we learned that hebephilia isn’t listed as a mental disorder, because finding teens attractive is normal and girls in puberty can understand lust unlike pre-pubertal girls.
