The shocking number of Australian men sexually attracted to children and teens

Salter said this was the first Australian study to focus on undetected offenders, and his goal was to improve prevention and early detection of child sexual abuse. “The aim of this study was to flip the script and really bring to visibility the men in the community who are harming children who never come to the attention of the criminal justice system,” Salter said. The profile of the undetected offender was “the classic person who you’d never suspect”, Salter said. In the anonymous survey, one in 20 men had sexual feelings towards children and admitted to offending, and they were more likely than other men to be married, earn higher incomes and work with children. Despite superficial success, the men were more likely to report anxiety, depression and binge drinking, and to have had adverse experiences in childhood. They were also more likely to be active online, including on social media, encrypted apps and cryptocurrency, and to consume pornography with violence or bestiality.
