Ephebophilia - Definition


Definition


Ephebophilia (from the Ancient Greek ephebos, which means adolescent) refers to sexual desire felt by an adult towards adolescents. It is a form of sexual attraction which was particularly common in ancient Greek and Roman societies. It is distinct from pedophilia in that the object of desire is not prepubescent. Ephebophilia does not have legal status, but its practice may be legal or illegal, according to the age of the adolescent (legal age of consent in the United States varies by state, ranging from 16 to 18 years old).
