Kinkly explains Pedophile

The term pedophile often gets confused with the term "child molester." However, there is actually an important distinction. One can be a pedophile without ever touching a child. Pedophilia is a diagnosis and not a crime. Many pedophiles are aware of their condition and work with mental health professionals to keep their desires in check.
