The homosexual offenders vs. minors might be termed quantitatively heterosexual and qualitatively homosexual insofar as their responses to the sight or thought of other individuals are concerned. While 87 per cent, a somewhat large proportion relatively speaking, reported sexual arousal from seeing or thinking of females vs. an equivalent 73 per cent figure for seeing or thinking of males, there was a difference in intensity of response in favor of the males. Roughly two fifths of these offenders were strongly or frequently sexually aroused by seeing or thinking of males as opposed to about one quarter thus aroused by females. The 73 per cent figure mentioned above earns these men second rank, by a wide margin, in visual or psychological response to their own sex: the figure for even the next most homosexually oriented group—the homosexual offenders vs. children—is only 55 per cent. Similarly the rank-order of strong homosexual response shows these homosexual offenders vs. minors as quite apart from all except their fellow homosexual offenders; the 43 per cent reporting strong or frequent arousal from seeing or thinking of males is nearly three times the figure of the next highest ranking group.
There is nothing unusual about the homosexual offenders vs. minors in terms of drug use, alcohol use, or gambling.
