Assessment of Sexual Offenders Against Children
(Apsac Study Guides, No 1)
by Vernon L. Quinsey, Martin L. Lalumiere
Published by Sage Pubns
Publication date: January 1996

Brent's notes: Dr. Quinsey, Professor, Department of Psychology at Queen's University, is one of the premier sex offender researchers in the field today. He has a litany of articles published on the subject a mile long. I've referenced him many times in my own work.

I've followed his work for a while now (5-6 years-- but he's been much longer than that), and although I do not always agree with his biological approach (penile plethysmagraph) I find his assertions well founded in good longitudinal research and subsequently very compelling.

  Unspeakable Acts: Why Men Sexually Abuse Children
by Douglas W. Pryor
Hardcover, 351 pages
Published by New York Univ Pr
Publication date: August 1,1996

The publisher, New York University Press, 11/15/96: Vital reading about the question WHY men commit sexual abuse

"A superb book that takes us into the subjective world of the 'child molester.' It breaks new ground and provides a major contribution to sex research. Vital reading for all those interested in the interpretation of the men who commit 'unspeakable acts." - Martin S. Weinberg co-author of 'Dual Attraction: Understanding Bisexuality'

"Victims, survivors, and their supporters most want to know how and why people can sexually assault and terrorize children who love and trust them. Finally, after reading Doug Pryor's 'Unspeakable Acts', I feel I have a vivid and reliable answer to that question. This book is must reading for every student of child sexual abuse." - Hal Pepinsky Indiana University at Bloomington

The sexual abuse of children is one of the most unsettling and emotionally inflammatory issues in American society today. It has been estimated that roughly one out of every four girls and one in ten boys experience some form of unwanted sexual attention either inside or outside the family before they reach adulthood. How should society deal with the sexual victimization of children? Should known offenders be released back into our communities? If so, where, and with what rights, should they be allowed to live? In 'Unspeakable Acts', Douglas W. Pryor argues that much of this debate, designed to deal with abusers AFTER they have offended, ignores the important issues of WHY men cross these forbidden sexual boundaries to molest children in the first place and how the behavior can possibly be prevented before it starts. Incorporating in-depth interviews with more than thirty convicted child molesters, Pryor explores how men become involved with breaking sexual boundaries with children. He looks at how their lives prior to offending contributed to and led up to what they did, the ways that initial interest in sex with children began, the tactics offenders employed to molest their victims over time, how they felt about and reacted to their behavior between offending episodes, and how they were ultimately able to stop. The author expands our understanding of this often reviled, little understood group, leaving us with the uneasy conclusion that the moral wall separating us from what is defined as extreme, 'sick' behavior is not as opaque as we would like to believe.

Douglas W. Pryor is co-author of the recent ground-breaking book "Dual Attractions: Understanding Bisexuality" and Assistant Professor of Sociology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
