It's happened too many times to count. Here's a situation: A 24 year old (let's name them Alex) asks a fourteen year old (Ray) for pictures of themselves. Alex tells Ray about how they would cuddle every night if Alex was there. Ray doesn't know Alex isn't fourteen until Alex asks Ray for underwear pictures. Turns out, Alex is twenty-four and while Ray's first messages point out they are fourteen, Alex never said anything and even now continues to push for photos of Ray. Do you consider someone above the age of 18 going after a minor a predator? Would your answer be different if Ray was eleven instead of 14?

He is an ephebophile, since he is being inappropriate with a teenager who is much younger than him. If Ray wasn't a teen but a child, then this situation would be considered pedophilia.0
