Prostasia Foundation is raising funds for research into child sexual abuse prevention. Our initial focus is on the effects of the use of sex toys, specifically dolls or robots, by those with a sexual attraction towards minors. Research into this understudied topic could inform current public debates over whether such toys should be prohibited by law, on the assumption that they would have a negative impact on rates of sexual offending. However a contrary hypothesis is that in some cases, the availability of toys may provide a safe, private sexual outlet for some people who would otherwise be at risk of turning their attention towards actual minors. This research should test these hypotheses.
