Up to 750,000 men living in Britain may have an interest in having sex with children, the Government has been warned.
A shocking analysis by the National Crime Agency reveals that about one in 35 adult males poses a potential risk of being a child abuser or of seeking out child sex images online.
Horrifically, as many as 250,000 men may be sexually attracted to pre-pubescent children – defined as those under 12 – according to the findings disclosed exclusively to The Mail on Sunday.
Given that the actual incidence of paedophilia is very, very, much lower than this it means that pretty much everyone who has such urges is able to keep them under control.
Which is good news, no?
Or, of course, we might just think that the estimate is bollocks but government wouldn’t feed us incorrect figures, would it?
