          ‘I Am Doing My Best To Avoid Having Sex With Kids At All Costs’


          January 23, 2017

          Sixty-five-year-old Gary says he has been happily married to his wife Tabitha for 11 years. The former teacher is a father of three and grandfather of 10 and once was a foster parent. He is also a self-described “virtuous pedophile.” He says he is attracted to girls as young as six but insists he’s never acted on his urges during his adult life.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Accused of something terrible?

          “I’m sexually attracted to little girls but I’m trying not to abuse them,” Gary says. “I am doing my best to avoid having sex with kids at all costs.”

          WATCH: ‘I Consider Myself A Virtuous Pedophile’

          In the video above from Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Gary describes experiences he says happened in his past that may have “initialized whatever inherited predisposition I had for pedophilia.” On Monday, hear from his wife and why she says she’s chosen to remain married to him. And, hear from his former foster daughter and what she says about living with Gary. Check here to see where you can watch.
