100 Texts that Include Hebephilia

 

The DSM-5 revisions committee has proposed subdividing the erotic preference for children into two subtypes: Whereas the current (DSM-IV-TR) definition refers to the sexual interest in children “generally ages 13 and under,” the proposed update would divide it into the sexual interest in children under 11 (still called pedophilia) and the sexual interest in children roughly 1114 (called hebephilia).  In response to the increased interest in the science on the topic, I compiled and posted the research studies on hebephilia, including abstracts.

 

One of the issues that has become relevant in discussions about whether to make hebephilia explicit in the DSM system is to what extent the concept has been accepted in the wider literature.  Although there is no objective means by which to decide how wide-spread is wide-spread enough, it is difficult to support claims that hebephilia is somehow an idiosyncratic or still-obscure concept.  The following is a list of one hundred of the many more texts that do, in fact, include hebephilia.  They span multiple academic fields, multiple countries, and multiple decades, long predating the current DSM discussions.  (The excerpts accompanying each text are as produced by the Google books search engine.)

 

Decisions about the contents of the DSM are part science and part value judgment, and legitimate debate can and should be had about how or when the science on hebephilia should be put to use.  There is little to gained, however, by claims that the following and the many other similar texts simply do not exist.
