Yes, this is a point I made some time ago. The whole field of sex research is reluctant to do any real science where childhood sexuality is concerned. The vast majority of academic papers that make any claims about pre-adult sexual experience (and many about adults too) simply do not qualify as science. Researchers in the field are by and large publishing pseudo-science, since they refuse to ask the simplest, most glaring questions raised repeatedly by their own work.|
It is a frustrating situation, which reveals the profound influence of culture over "science." What researcher wants to be treated to a congressional censure like Rind et al.?
