Todd Nickerson is a self-confessed paedophile who does not act on his thoughts

first_imgNZ Herald 22 November 2016Family First Comment: You really have to question why the NZ Herald would publish this story – “He admits that he is attracted to children as young as 3 or 4, but that his attraction peaks with children aged around 9 or 10 years old.”But apparently he doesn’t act on it. Would you allow your child around him??A self-confessed “non-offending paedophile” is on a mission to revolutionise society’s understanding of underage attraction.Todd Nickerson, from Tennessee, wants to encourage other paedophiles to seek help and support for their sexual inclinations.He claims paedophilia is better understood as a sexual orientation – although one he believes it is unethical to act on.The 43-year-old is a moderator on the online forum “VirPed” – short for “virtuous paedophiles”, also sometimes called “ethical paedophiles” or “gold star paedophiles”.The terms are used to describe those who have an attraction to prepubescent children but control their urges and refrain from watching child pornography or seeking sexual contact with minors.READ MORE: up with family issues in NZ.
