German study examines prevalence of attraction to children

A team of researchers have published a study in the August 2015 issue of Archives of Sexual Behavior in which they found that “In an online survey of 8,718 German men, 4.1% reported sexual fantasies involving prepubescent children, 3.2% reported sexual offending against prepubescent children, and 0.1% reported a pedophilic sexual preference.” The study makes a clear distinction between prepubescent children and children who have reached puberty, and does not address the number of people attracted to the latter.
