Smith was a year-old man referred for psychological treatment after sexually offending against a year-old boy. He initially denied the charge, but eventually admitted to sexually abusing multiple youth. Smith is actually a case composite from my first book on pedophilia. Most men are sexually attracted to sexually mature young adults. But a small minority of men are sexually attracted to other age groups, from infants to the elderly. These age-based attractions are called chronophilias.

Pedophiles, Hebephiles and Ephebophiles, Oh My: Erotic Age Orientation
Some paedophiles say they would never abuse children. But what support is there for people like this and how should society treat them to prevent abuse happening? I'll let you know what colour top i'm wearing or something so you can recognise me. Although I'll just be the creepy looking guy :D lol.
Hebephilia is the strong, persistent sexual interest by adults in pubescent children who are in early adolescence , typically ages 11—14 and showing Tanner stages 2 to 3 of physical development. Hebephilia is approximate in its age range because the onset and completion of puberty vary. Proposals for categorizing hebephilia have argued that separating sexual attraction to prepubescent children from sexual attraction to early-to-mid or late pubescents is clinically relevant. Based on their results, Blanchard suggested that the DSM-5 could account for these data by subdividing the existing diagnosis of pedophilia into hebephilia and a narrower definition of pedophilia. The term hebephilia is based on the Greek goddess and protector of youth Hebe , but, in Ancient Greece , also referred to the time before manhood in Athens depending on the reference, the specific age could be 14, 16 or 18 years old.
