I'm not sure if that's relevant tbh
An acquired taste, preference or addiction that becomes deeply rooted in the unconscious, may be much harder (even practically impossible) to uproot than to develop
. But I've heard of (and know 1 personally..yrs ago) cases where that seems to've happened.
Ex-gay not afraid to tell anyone he is living proof ‘sexual orientation’ can be changed
Man claims saved from being gay
A third article - I'm pretty sure was non-spiritual/religious, can't find anymore.
You could say..
> A) they weren't "truly" gay and therefore didn't need to "recover"
> B) they didn't really "recover", only successfully [re-]repressed
I think that's hard to prove.
However, I don't agree the difference between homosexual vs. heterosexual is really comparable to the diff between attraction to girls
with different age female markers, which I believe can be acquired or cultivated, as many other tastes can be.
Take e.g. one
female element (post not mine) :
>I took LS pics and other such pics, and zoomed and cropped them so ONLY the pussy was visible. I posted them on the porn subs. Know what the result was? ALL POSITIVE. These people didn't know they were fapping to children because of the cropping, all they knew was that they thought the pussies I was posting looked delicious. We're talking people on Reddit unknowingly jacking off to literally-prepubescent pussies. It finally ended when I started getting a little too obvious, although even then it was getting 100 upvotes and nothing but positive comments ...
>It was a fascinating experiment though, I got to see how so-called non-pedos actually respond to nudes of children if they don't actually know they're children (and thus sidestepping the moral outrage ...). Turns out, if they don't know it's a child and so they don't get that knee jerk reaction of disgust because "OMG CHILD PORN!", they actually get really goddamn turned on by it. I feel like I made a bigger scientific breakthrough with those couple days of shitposting discreet cp than any actual researcher ever has. [...] As long as they don't know it's a child, child pussy is really damn hot even to normal people on Reddit.
If it could be argued prepub privates are more aesthetic
(if Plato, Kant, Hegel's objective aesthetics exist..), then I think it's natural an adult could, with exposure over time
, become accustomed to them.
You could say that itself doesn't constitute pedophilia, and I would more-or-less agree.
However, normal adults can appreciate feminine beauty
of any age showing femininity.
So what's the line between seeing a girl as beautifully feminine
I'd say mostly conditioning, by receptive exposure
to lg's in sexual contexts (such as in the block quote above).
> The findings were that viewing such [simulated child] pornography led to a stronger mental association between neutral (nonsexual) images of children and words related to sex (e.g., arousing, sexy). These findings suggest that viewing sexualized portrayals of girls could lead viewers to associate children with sex, even when they are not being sexualized.
> One particularly pernicious effect of the constant exposure to sexualized images of girls is that individuals and society may be “trained” to perceive and label sexualized girls as “seductive.”
I realize that's an ambiguous result... but I think it may warrant questioning of popular beliefs re prepub. attraction.
Knowing in males sexual preference tends to cement around puberty
, if we could do a longitudinal study of prepub. boys who were exposed to lg's in sexual contexts, I predict that would correlate with higher incidence of pedophilia surfacing in adulthood.
