Why do older men lust after teenagers?

Sexual Exploitation & Grooming

We live in a world today where pedophilia is prominent. Underage sex occurs everywhere, and in a recent lifestyle survey conducted by Playboy, 74% of men said they would consider pursuing a relationship with a 14 year old child if it was to be made legal. According to The Diagnostic And Statistical Manual Of Mental Disorders, pedophilia is actually considered to be a psychiatric condition. I find this unacceptable and shocking to say the least. They're basically saying if you're attracted to children, you're mentally ill. No you're not! You're depraved and need putting down. Simple as that.

So what is the reason for men lusting over young girls. Psychologists and Relationship Experts say that older men want to feel young again, they want to re-live their youth, and that is the main motivation for their interest in teens. There is nothing wrong with platonic relationships and friendships between young girls and older men that does not involve sex, but why is that rarely the case? 

Every country has different laws regarding the age of consent. In the UK, it is 16. In some countries, like Spain, Mexico and Japan, it is 12. It is absolutely disgusting. Not right at all.

Any females under the age of 18, are vulnerable, naive and under developed. They do not have the life experience to be able to fully understand and make decisions.  They are easily persuaded. Men take advantage of that. Men like to think that they are natural dominators- so they look for prey they can easily control and manipulate. Men who like teenagers are potentially dangerous as they tend to play mind games and know all the tricks of the trade- they would provide the girl with gifts and money in order to sleep with her. In comparison, women who are 25 and over, are usually mature enough to know when a man is trying to manipulate them, this is due to various life experiences we learn as we go through situations. A girl under 18 however will not have such experience. They are usually having fun enjoying going out with friends, having silly crushes on their pop star idols, and going to school/college- they are too young to worry about the psychology of relationships. This is why they would be easy targets for manipulation.   

For men, there is no emotional value to being in a relationship with a child. They only associate them with sex. Men enjoy looking at the luminous flesh of a teenager and they just want to 'fuck' them, so to speak. Where do we draw the line? Girls under the age of 18 are still fresh- they lack knowledge of life, they can't see past the 'gifts' and 'unlimited compliments'. They are so easily duped. Any relationship involving an older man and a young girl is exploitative and harmful. 

Any man who has an unhealthy interest in a young girl, whether or not they are of legal age or under 18, is perverted and disgusting. It is a form of child exploitation and tougher laws need to be implemented to ensure the protection of the child.
