Today sexual relationships between adults and children are being discussed and examined by both the general population and academia. The media features articles and programs on the topic. Personal experience books from the child's perspective are being published regularly. There is a growing amount of literature written by academics. Treatment programs are springing up around the country. And legislation prohibiting these relationships is being written or revised.
