Abstract

This paper presents an aetiological model of Child Sexual Exploitation Material (CSEM) offending based on men who have admitted, or are convicted of accessing CSEM through the internet. The research employed a multi-modal methodology, including semi-structured interviews and structured psychometric assessments (incl. mental health, sexual behaviours and interests). The model allows for identification of differential offending pathways based on the interactions between (a) early life attachments and relationships, (b) early sexual experiences with pornography, adults and other children, (c) life circumstances in the lead up to initial offending and (d) infrastructure of the internet, and thus for targeted assessment intervention planning.
