“I’ve been sexually attracted to little girls for the past 60 years but choose not to act on it,” says 65-year-old Gary. “I consider myself a virtuous pedophile but I am not a child molester and I am not a sex offender.”

Gary, a former teacher who says he’s been happily married for the last 11 years, explains that he is typically attracted to girls age 6-12. “I like them when they’re more natural, before they wear makeup and hit puberty,” he says. “I tend to be more triggered when I see a little girl in a bathing suit or running around naked.”

However, Gary says he has never acted on his urges in his adult life.
“There’s a big difference between attraction, arousal and action,” says the father of three and grandfather of 10. “We can’t choose who we’re sexually attracted to and for whatever reason, I just feel that little girls are the most beautiful beings on the planet. There’s something about their innocence, their purity, their just total open personality.”
