The clinical definition of pedophilia is pre-pubescent (so under say 12 years old or younger). So, in that case, maybe no. Maybe 30-40% of men are actually sexually attracted to little girls, but 60-70% find little girls sexually UNattractive.
So to sum it up:
Yes, most men are pedophiles under the legal definition.
No, most men are not pedophiles under the clinical defintion.
98% of men won't actually act or commit any sexual action towards minors or girls even though most of them find them sexually attractive and would in a fantasy world.
2% of men do act upon their true feelings and try to engage actitivities with girls under 18.

guest0929 wrote:So a 12 year old boy is old enough to be sexually attracted to a 12 year old girl, but all of a sudden an 18 year old guy is supposed to find 12 year old girls unattractive now?
guest0929 wrote:Like how does that work in the brain?
