In his article “The Puzzle of Male Chronophilias,” Seto (2016) gives a comprehensive overview over male sexual age preferences. His model of multi-dimensional sexual preference resembles the three axial model of Beier, Bosinski, and Loewit (2005) who stated: “The sexual preference structure in general manifests itself in every human on three basic axes: (1) with regard to the preferred gender of the sex partner (male and/or female), (2) regarding the preferred (body development) age of the sex partner (body scheme of children, adolescents, adults, elderly persons), and (3) regarding the preferred kind and modus of sexual activity with and without sex partner(s) (type, object, method, etc.)…” How these three axes manifest determines the stimuli to which each individual is sexually attracted, thus allowing for a huge spectrum of sexual possibilities or “orientations” as Seto puts it.
