Pedophile talks about attempts to treat the disease and fear of losing control
-- How was the reaction when you told your wife?
-- Wow, she was devastated. At the time, she didn’t say anything. She was speechless. I was only able to talk to her again the following week, already in jail.
-- Are you religious? Did you look for help or did you already have it?
-- I already had, I was evangelical. But I didn’t ask anyone for help. It’s very difficult to ask for help. If I said, "I'm a thief," it would be easier. Not a pedophile, because the pedophile is already stigmatized. He's a criminal. He is not a patient, he is a criminal.
