Am I a pedophile? Or was it just a random erection?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a 21 year old male. This summer I got an erection when I was randomly looking at a young boys legs. I am worried that I might be a pedophile. Might also be POCD. I am not sexually attracted to kids, I don't have any sexual fantasies about them, and I don't have any recurrent urges towards them. Am I a pedophile?

Welcome to our community. I'm sorry you are feeling distressed about this.

If you feel no sexual attraction toward children, I would think there is nothing to be concerned about. Maybe try, if you can, not to focus too much on this one occurrence?

How are things in your life otherwise?

Take care, gg.
