TEDx Speaker: Pedophilia is An Unchangeable Orientation

If you’ve heard me lecture on paraphilias in the last couple years you have heard me talk about this. Here is another one in the news. I expect more as time goes on.
Controversy erupted recently over a TEDx talk featuring a German medical student who exclaimed that “pedophilia is an unchangeable sexual orientation, just like … heterosexuality.”

The student, Mirjam Heine, gave the talk at the University of Würtzberg in Germany this past May under the title “Why our perception of pedophilia has to change.” During her talk, Heine said that people need to recognize that pedophilia is a natural force.

“Anyone could be born a pedophile,” she told the audience, citing it as just an “unchangeable sexual orientation just like, for example, heterosexuality.”

“The difference between pedophilia and other sexual orientations is that living out this sexual orientation will end in a disaster,” she said.
