Answer these questions honestly for yourself.
- Have you ever told yourself "he/she is mature for his/her age" or something similar to make yourself feel better about your sexual thoughts or behaviours toward children or underage teenagers?
- Have you ever wanted to stop fantasising about or touching children or underage teenagers in a sexual way, or looking at sexual images of children, but did it again?
- Do you find that romantic/sexual fantasies about, or sexual behaviour towards, children or underage teenagers interfere with your relationships at home or work?
- Does your sexual attraction to children or underage teenagers conflict with your spiritual beliefs or moral values?
- Has your sexual attraction to children or underage teenagers ever left you feeling worried, frightened, ashamed, hopeless, alienated from others or suicidal?
