The Prevention of Sexual Offenses
Arriving at any plan of prevention that is likely to be effective requires rational appraisal. The field of sex in general and sexual offenses in particular has not been characterized by rational thinking. Often the way that the law is framed serves to reinforce and maintain our more emotional reactions to this behavior. It is thus clearly desirable that we should strive for as rational and objective an analysis of the problem as possible.
