Except, as soon as you’ve taken the thought and acted on it, via role playing, it’s no longer just a thought. Now it’s a thought that you’ve added action to. And there is also the problem of acting further – that requires molesting a child. Are you really prepared to wait that long? What if you were that child that had to be molested before someone stepped up and did something about the adult?
I know it’s a complicated issue, but children do not have the same ability as adults to get out of bad situations.
Besides, for those who just get off on…whatever it is…if they can’t get that same quality from someone who is 18, then there is a very real issue there. That means they are fixating on the age and the illegal aspect of it. That makes them dangerous.
