For today's A Women's Circle show, I recorded a webinar that I attended on men sexually attracted to young adolescent boys. I wanted to share this insightful discussion on men who molest boys. I was surprised by that the tactics these men use to groom their victims. I was equally surprised by the young age in which these offender offend. Parents or anyone who monitor the safety of boys should listen to this webinar. 

Former FBI profiler and noted author Kenneth Lanning wrote that men sexually attracted to young adolescent boys are the most persistent and prolific child molesters known to the criminal justice systems. Studies have shown that male-target pedophiles may have significantly more victims over the course of their lifetime, as well as higher recidivism rates when compared to female-target offenders.

This workshop will take a closer look at men who are sexually attracted to boys. The presentation is based, in part, on a series of prison interviews conducted by the presenter with more than 75 convicted child molesters, but it will also touch on other more extensive research involving larger groups of offenders
