Very attractive teens dating grown men
To back up his thesis that this isn't a reflection of a "natural" desire on men's part, Schwyzer cites a 2007 study done in Sweden (though linking only to an article in The Economist that briefly mentions the study). Here's the first paragraph of their discussion at the end of the paper: "We show that the offspring count of both men and women who did not change their partner (i.e.
the other parent) between the birth of their first and last child increased, .
That’s because, in today’s Britain, if a man is accused of being a kiddy fiddler he’s guilty until proven innocent, and even if he’s subsequently acquitted, the old “there’s no smoke with fire” rule applies.
A tiny minority of men are grotesque sexual predators who deserve to be jailed for a very long time.
(Ain't gonna happen, Hugo.) Before getting too far into the weeds of this thought experiment, Schwyzer makes it clear that he's not talking about pedophiles or other obvious creeps; he's talking about men like Johnny Depp, who is apparently dating a woman in her late 20s, while he's just hit the big 5-0. The study Schwyzer cites actually says the opposite of what he thinks it does.
After bemoaning the ubiquity of this pattern of attraction, we come to the nub: "What seems harmless and natural, however, is neither." Schwyzer argues—or seems to—that this isn't in fact happening in response to any innate biological desire men hold for women in their most fertile years, despite the overwhelming biological evidence in support of such a view. You're going to cite a to refute the overwhelmingly accepted understanding that men are attracted to women at the prime of their fertility due to innate, evolved tendencies? The authors conclude that an age difference of 4-6 years (man older) is optimal for greater fecundity, that partners should be the same age.
I’m pretty sure she will be a beautiful teenager, aesthetically and otherwise.
I’ve written for the Telegraph before about how almost every aspect of the man-child interface has been blighted by the seeming omnipresence of paedophilia.
And with every Jimmy Savile or Rolf Harris front-page expose, it’s getting worse.
“Lately, in order to want to sleep with someone, I actually have to them as a person.” He said this as if it were a mind-blowing revelation.
I told him that, at 31, the realization was probably a bit overdue, but I knew what he meant: As one gets older, it becomes harder and harder to be attracted to someone simply because of the way they look.
