“You can tell an alcoholic to stop drinking and that it’s not going to kill you to stop drinking but that doesn’t mean they’re going to do it. It’s the same with heroin or chocolate”

Pedophiles
Expert believe that Dolls can help Pedophiles control their urges.

Few days after a UK Judge has ruled that a child sex doll imported by a former primary school governor is an obscene item. Now, one British sex therapist claims that these dolls shouldn’t be confiscated from pedophiles but instead distributed to them.

Juliet Grayson who is a registered psychosexual therapist and the chair of the Specialist Treatment Organization for the Prevention of Sexual Offending (StopSO)claimed told the Independent that the prescription of a prescribing of a child sex doll to a pedophile would be similar to giving methadone to a heroin addict.

“For someone who has an exclusive attraction to children there is no legal way for them to satisfy their desires apart from masturbating to an image in their own head as they’re allowed to look at pictures or even draw a drawing,” Juliet Grayson said.

Juliet herself would not object treating offenders with such dolls. She suggested that by allowing child sex dolls to pedophiles in a “managed environment” might stop them from harming children.

Grayson claimed that – if pedophiles’ urges can’t be switched off, then they must be channeled in the right ways.

Discussing more about pedophiles having children dolls, she said that “I do know of a man who had children dolls – he had two and was very happy to use them rather than touching a child. This wasn’t great but better than nothing.”

Juliet Grayson said that she did not want child sex dolls to be available to the general public and she expressed her concern that this could lead to people normalizing the activity. In the United Kingdom to import a child sex doll but it is not illegal to own one.

“You can tell an alcoholic to stop drinking and that it’s not going to kill you to stop drinking, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to do it. It’s the same with heroin, or alcohol, or chocolate,” said Juliet Grayson.

Grayson Further added:

“I would love to get to a stage where society can accept that some people are sexually attracted to children and yet they remain completely law-abiding, and it is safe for those people to admit to their attraction… We will be protecting our children better when this person is able to tell their friends, ‘I am sexually attracted to children, I am a non-offending pedophile, but I am managing it safely and not acting out in any way. But for your own peace of mind, don’t leave your children with me unaccompanied’.”

But there is no such treatment and acceptance for pedophiles.

However, experts disagree with the idea and and believe that Grayson’s idea of treatment would not prove helpful at all.

Jon Brown, the head of development at the National Society for the prevention of cruelty to children, told Independent that:

“There is no evidence to support the idea that the use of so-called child sex dolls helps prevent potential abusers from committing contact offenses against real children…. And in fact, there is a risk that those using these child sex dolls or realistic props could become desensitized and their behavior becomes normalized to them so that they go on to harm children themselves, as is often the case with those who view indecent images.”

What should be the treatment for pedophiles? Should it involve child sex dolls or not, the recent judicial ruling that dolls are “obscene” has forced the matter back into headlines both in the UK and abroad.

The results from a several studies conducted were shocking by StopSO, the studies show that 2 percent of the UK population has strong pedophile tendencies and that one in five men was found to be equally or more attracted to children when they were shown adult and child pornography.

How to deal with this percentage has been a controversial issue. When Japanese manufacturer Shin Takagi spoke with The Atlantic about the child sex dolls, which he’d been making for pedophiles for around ten years and how, he claimed, these dolls had helped many re-channel their urges.

But there were no studies done to scientifically measure Takagi’s assertion. Peter Fagan, a paraphilia researcher, told the Atlantic that the Takagi’s dolls would have a “reinforcing effect” on pedophilic urges and “in many instances, cause it to be acted upon with greater urgency.”

In an analysis form, the Mayo Clinic in 2007 shows that more traditional methods of treating pedophiles do no actually change the subject’s urges. The common traditional methods include cognitive behavioral therapy and chemical castration.

If the traditional methods are falling, then there is a need for new methods but this will remain a matter of heated debate.
