Child Attraction

I don't want to post too much publically as I'm ashamed of my feelings and can't quite grip them. I honestly feel so disgusted at myself for being attracted this way. Is there anyone else with the same attraction who can help or talk? I just feel alone and noone to turn to that i can explain my situations and talk about it freely without being judged. Wish i could knock this awful addiction :(

There are many people that frequent this forum who are sexually attracted to prepubescent and early pubescent children. You can talk relatively openly here without been by graphic or anything like that. I'd suggest reading the forum rules if you haven't already. I'm not sure what you mean by addiction. A sexual attraction isn't an addiction. Just know that these attractions don't make you a bad or evil person. Our thoughts don't determine whether we are a good or bad person, our actions do.

It depends what ages you are attracted to. It isn't normal to be attracted to prepubescent children but there are many people who are and are going through the same feelings and struggles as you are. I am not attracted to prepubescent children but I am attracted to early pubescent boys. I felt disgusting and scared and eventually I accepted it. I still have days where I feel gross but they are few and far between now. Are you exclusively attracted to children or are you also attracted to adults? Either way your attractions don't have to define you. You don't want to hurt any children so you aren't a bad person. Society may take a dim view of attraction to children but so long as it remains thoughts they don't have to know anything and so long as you can find the support you need, you can live a happy life.

Being attracted to pubescent children is extremely common if not entirely normal, and until recently such people were considered not to be children at all. Being attracted to prepubescent children is less common, especially as an exclusive preference, but it is not the irresistible inclination toward malevolence that society and the media say it is. It can be a problem for many people, but most of the problem is from the ostracism that pedophiles receive. Rape is bad regardless of the age of the victim, so every sexual preference has that danger.

Pedophilia is not an addiction, it's a taboo sexual preference.
