Last year, Toby Young attended the London Conference on Intelligence at UCL. One of its principal organisers was Emil Kirkegaard, who writes:

Suppose one is born a paedophile. What to do? If one is a moral being, then one will avoid actually raping children. One can have sex with some rather young ones (say, any consenting child in puberty) without any moral problems, especially when one is young oneself.

For the rest, one is left to masturbate to porn, perhaps child porn (animated or not), and regular porn. That sucks, and there is nothing to do about it. Perhaps a compromise is having sex with a sleeping child without them knowing it (so, using sleeping medicine). If they don't notice it is difficult to see how they could be harmed, even if it is rape.

One must distinguish between rape because the other was disconsenting (wanting to not have sex), and rape because the other is not consenting, but not disconsenting either (so, unaware of the action because of sleep or coma or something like that).

There is also the possibility of bodily harm that will be there after the person wakes up. This is especially the case with small children since their bodily openings are not large enough for a regular sized male penis. To avoid this one should not penetrate.

Toby Young remains Director of the New Schools Network.
